All about the birds and the....stripes?? eShakti review

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by eShakti to do a product review. I have never done a sponsored post before so I was super excited that I was asked to take part in this one!! I had stumbled across a few other bloggers who wrote about the amazing experience that they had with eShakti, so I was beyond thrilled when my package came in the mail!!

Let me start out by telling you a little bit about the company.

"eShakti believes that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their absolute best. eShakti began as a small website offering basic cottons and modestly embellished pieces. As we grew, we were tasked with providing design and fit solutions to meet our customers' needs. Today, we are an international fashion design company making custom clothing. Offering both style and fit customization for women size 0 through 36 is the heart of our business.

When I started browsing around their website, I noticed something that really stood out to me-you can customize almost anything about the clothes! I absolutely HATE when I am shopping and I find the perfect dress with the most beautiful print, only to realize that all of my goods are hanging out. Or an amazing maxi skirt that is 8" too long, something that even the highest heels can't fix. With eShakti, you will never have this problem! Not only can you customize the length of a skirt or a dress, but if want to change up the sleeves, add a decal or throw in a pocket, you can! You can literally design the clothing to fit YOUR taste and YOUR curves (or in my case, lack thereof). How awesome is that!

I selected the "Bird Applique Banded Stripe Dress," because lets face it, how much better does it get than stripes and a bird all on one dress? Here's a look at my selection:

 Absolutely adorable, right?!

I have such a hard time finding clothes that fit perfectly, so I was a little worried about ordering from a website, especially one that I had not bought from before. I went with the smallest size offered, figuring that this was my safest bet. I kept everything exactly as it was in the picture--I loved the cap sleeves, empire waist and adorable decal-and waiting for my delivery!....

I didn't have to wait long. The dress arrived within a week, perfectly pressed and packaged. From the moment I took the dress out of the packaging I could tell that the dress was made with amazing quality. The material was thick and durable, and the decal was carefully sewn on to the skirt. And you know what else? It fit PERFECT! The side zipper allowed for easy over-the-head access, fitting comfortably on every part of my body. The length was just right--it hit directly above my knee, which was perfect for this particular silhouette. OMG did I tell you that the dress has pockets!?! I literally spun around in front of my mirror for 30 minutes with my hands in the pockets, just because I could! I could not find one thing that I didn't love about the dress, and I couldn't wait to wear it to work!

I paired the dress with basic accessories, a sparkly belt and some spiky heels. The volume in the skirt felt so playful while the form fitting top was so girly! I literally wanted to spin in circles all day with my hands in those hidden pockets! After receiving countless compliments and a few questions regarding where the hell I had purchased a dress with birds on it, (my coworkers have become accustomed to my unique sense of fashion), I knew that I had selected the perfect dress! The length, the fit, the design---the dress is perfect!!! I can only imagine that everything else on the website it just as comfortable and adorable, and I can't wait to order another piece!!
