As you all know (especially if you follow me on Instagram …) I am a dress girl. Casual apparel to me is a sweater dress and boots, unless I’m working out. Business casual? A dress. Business professional? Pencil skirt and blazer. Whatever I’m dressing for (unless it’s the gym) I’m almost always in a dress.
A few weeks ago, eShakti reached out to me to try one of their dresses and tailor it to fit me and my style perfectly. Not only was I able to customize the size, but I was able to customize the length (since I’m a short human, this was AWESOME) and other little parts of the dress. I’m always nervous to purchase dresses online because I’m not sure how it’ll fit my exact shape, so I’ll definitely be using their website again. It was an extremely simple process! It took a couple of weeks for my order to process and be shipped and I’m sooooo happy with it! It’s “casual”, yet something I can still wear to work if I dress it up with boots and jewelry.
Someday I’ll have a professional camera and/or camera man (<— Ben doesn’t know what he’s getting into) but for now, you get badly lit selfies. It wouldn’t be a fashion post from me if they weren’t selfies, am I right? 🙂
I paired it with some lace tights and over-the-knee black boots.
The dress is SO well made. The material is thick and comfortable and there are USEFUL pockets! You understand, ladies. Dresses with pockets are the best, but when the pockets are useful? Amazing.
My only “issue” with the dress was a personal one. I’m not used to wearing high-neck shirts/dresses, so the collar started to bother me by the end of the day, hence why some of the pictures have the buttons undone. I think it looked just as cute undone, so it didn’t end up being an issue.
I’ve worn the dress to work a few times and have had a few coworkers comment on how cute it looked! The dress even passed the Thanksgiving test – didn’t show my food baby AND I still looked presentable. 🙂
Have you ever heard of eShakti? Make sure to check them out on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter! I had hoped to have a discount code for you, but they never sent me one. If I get one in the near future, I’ll highlight it in another post! 🙂
