Regardless of your size or situation, I believe every girl deserves a killer holiday dress! I’m sitting at 32 weeks pregnant, and I am as big as a barn, but I desperately wanted/needed a smashing dress for my husband’s holiday party! They are always big events held downtown, and I just knew that if I didn’t find something fast, I’d be wearing leggings and a muumuu. Its no secret that I’m a huuuge eShakti fan, and I knew that despite my extremely irregular measurements right now, they’d be able to create something tailored, customized, and fabulous.
eShakti is like your personal tailor. You select a dress design and from there, make all sorts of alterations, starting with adding in all of your body measurements. From there, you can add sleeves, change the sleeve length, remove pockets, change up the neckline, extend or shorten the hem, etc. Its really incredible and incredibly addicting to create and recreate all sorts of fashion possibilities! Here are my favorites from the Dandy archives:
eShakti always has a treasure trove of styles and I LOVE these NEW ARRIVALS! The eShakti holiday collection is full of shimmery fabrics, beautiful prints, and classic designs. The bohemian styles are so fun and I love how many new types of fabric they’ve been adding, beyond a basic cotton woven.
This time around I chose a Gold Jacquard Lace Draped Dress because of its holiday glam, neutral color, and maternity-friendly style! There is nothing like zipping up a dress that was custom made for you and having it fit like a glove in every measurement.
Just like every eShakti order I’ve done in the past, there’s a little thrill that accompanies every chance I get to customize my dress. With this, I was able to put in my exact (and unique) measurements, as well as change the length to mid-calf. I wanted to make sure this big belly would be covered! Because I knew that a lot of the eShakti styles have higher waistlines that fall at the “true waist”, I knew that as long as I ordered something with a full skirt, I’d be in good shape.
Oh, the gold! This jacquard fabric is gorgeous!! It has just the right amount of sparkle and glimmer to be perfect for a holiday dress. The amount of flare on the skirt is perfect because it is full, and the weight of the fabric keeps it from getting fluffy or too ’50s big.
This style and color is so easy to accessorize! Someone yesterday said I looked like a Christmas present!
The pleated top is romantic and I like how the folds add dimension and interest. It also allows for a lot of give if you have a growing bust line like me. I love the keyhole button in the back!
I just love absolutely everything about this dress! I’m excited to be able to wear it post-baby and I think it could be a darling Spring dress as well. Thank you, eShakti! I LOVE your dresses!
Styles come and go like hotcakes, so if you see and style and print you love, ORDER IT! This dress just arrived last week and I already don’t even see it listed on the website anymore.
