Holiday Review and Giveaway from eShakti! – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

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.d3

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.

Welcome to the Santa’s Little Helper Giveaway Hop, hosted by Viva Veltoro and So Easy Being Green!

We all know that everyone could use a little help around the Holidays, so for this Event I’ve teamed up with over 90 other bloggers to be your Santa’s Little Helper… giving away prizes that anyone would want to see under the tree! You might find the perfect gift for a little one on your list – or even for yourself, so hop around to all the blogs, including the GRAND PRIZE, on the linky at the bottom of this post!

Happy Holidays!

…………………………………………………………………………………
So ladies, have you ever woken up the morning of a big Christmas holiday party and thought, “I know!  I’ll wear that dress that is so unflattering, but I love the color”, or “That dress that is a little too short, but has the perfect sleeves, will be perfect”, or “If only that little black dress was taken out a little more and had pockets, it would be my dream dress”.  Speaking from a seamstress perspective, I know how some of you live, having to incessantly be taking things to be tailored or giving things away because they are just not-quite flattering.  Have you ever wished you had your personal tailor who could make you your dream dress exactly to your measurements, and then customize things like the dress length, type of sleeves, pockets, and other details?
 AffiliateTermsConditions20032
Ladies, your personal tailor and seamstress: eShakti.
I haven’t enough words to tell you how much I love this place.  You can literally customize any of their skirts, dresses, or tops to your exact measurements, and then take it a step further and customize the sleeves, the hem length, the embroidered details, the pockets, etc.  A personal seamstress could not do this faster or cheaper, mark my words.
I LOVE working with eShakti!  Everything I order is delivered in a timely fashion (which is remarkable knowing that these are made overseas).  See the last two dresses I ordered from them:
duo
Their styles are darling, flattering, and there are dozens and dozens of dresses and colors to choose from.  Yap, yap, yap, let’s let the dress do the talking.  I was ready to go a little festive and be a little daring, so I went with this Beaded Crepe Knit Sheath Dress in Emerald.  Love it!

So to be honest, there a lot of things I love about this dress, and I few things I would change.  The beadwork: love it.  Gorgeous, secure, detailed, high quality beads.  The draping: love it, but I do wish the pleats had been sewn down a little further up the sides.  I really think my bustiness created an odd pattern ratio, which causes the pleats to gape open.  It makes me look a little more chesty than I already am, but I do like the added dimension of more texture and fabric up top.

This dress also features a keyhole back with rouleau-button closure.  eShakti was nice enough to send along an extra button as well as a bag of beads to replace them down the road if needs be.

I think a belt does a great job at bringing this all together, and the beadwork makes accessorizing with gold or silver jewelry so easy!  Go glam!

There are hundreds of possibilities at eShakti.  You’re bound to find dozens of styles you love and would love to further customize.

eShakti {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Sometimes I get really jealous about how men can just order clothes from anywhere based on 2-3 measurements.  A waist and an inseam is all they need to order pants, and a sleeve length and a neck circumference is all they need for shirts!  What!?  Take jeans.  When it comes to women’s bodies, I imagine you could try on 25 pairs of jeans and feel like every single one of them fit a different way or felt different on your body.  Every female figure is so unique!!  Add the craziness that pregnancy and nursing can do to your figure, and your measurements can go in all sorts of directions!!  Frustrating.

AffiliateTermsConditions20032For all these reasons, I so very rarely trust myself to purchase clothing online.  When I do, I end up altering it myself to get the exact fit I want.  The all-fabulous clothing shop called eShakti will put all your frustrations and fears behind you!  They make customizable clothing that are sewn EXACTLY to your measurements, plus you can customize other features like sleeve type, hem length, pockets, no pockets, etc.mailer21-1-13-2

eShakti has become my favorite online dress shop of all time!  I’m on their email list, so every time they have new styles or designs, I immediately peruse and pick out new favorites.  They have so many current fashions, colors, and styles, especially in line with the season.  I have no idea how they can bust out all these gloriously beautiful fashions in customized sizes and styles in 10 days or less, but I would LOOOOVE to see their workshop!  Or work in it, haha.

Do you love my new dress?  This is the Pleated Surplice Poplin Dress.  Above is how it started, then of course, I added elbow length sleeves, and changed it to new length.  I kept the pockets and put in all my (fairly unproportional) measurements to get something completely customized to fit me!

If you are self-conscious about any part of your body, you can style their dresses or tops to one that suits your body type.  This is the answer to every woman’s qualms about their insecurities (and we all have them).  I bet we can all think of something we like to hide, or cover, or show off.  I can see how eShakti is appealing to all women of all shapes and sizes.  They carry everything from size 0 to 36W, for goodness sake.

What a complete breath of fresh air and relief to try on this dress straight out of the box, zip it up, and get a 100% perfect fit!  Custom orders start at just $7.50, so you too can get it just exactly right!

IMG_7155

eShakti is the cream of the crop of tailor made dresses!  Don’t you see the value of this shop when it comes to bridesmaids dresses?  You could start with one dress and each girl could get it styled to their liking and body type, and made exactly to their measurements.

I want to order every dress I ever wear from eShakti!  I have no criticisms, no complaints, and not a single suggestions to improve the awesomeness going on at eShakti.  I only hope they stay around a long, long time.  They have found a life-time fan in me, that’s for sure.  Here are some other favorites!!

I have been a closet fan of eShakti for YEARS!!  The first time I visited their site, I fell absolutely in love.  A site of simply fabulous clothes, and all of them customizable in practically a dozen ways.  Their dresses can be customized exactly the way you like!  If you fall for a dress that is perfect in every way, except you’d like to add sleeves, raise the hem, and remove the pockets, done!   Then if you change your mind and decide to change the sleeves from cap sleeves to ¾ length, and change the neckline, done and done!

Ok, look at me.  I’m 5’2 and a DDD.  You can bet its nigh unto impossible to find any article of clothing that fits the first time I put it on.  This is a big reason why I’ve resorted to sewing most of my clothes in the first place.  Knowing everything that is entailed in making bust alterations and irregular body type fixes to ready-to-wear garments, I am telling your that eShakti is a goldmine.

I spend several HOURS looking through their eShakti’s dresses and finally narrowed down my favorites.  I literally had a list of at least ten favorites and I couldn’t bear to choose just one.  Eventually, I settled on the Chambray Trench Dress because chambray is so popular right now, and I think this dress looks great in a variety of seasons and can be styled a number of successful ways.  The site is extremely customer friendly.  I even had a question about the sleeve options and my email was answered promptly.  Every order, even custom orders, are made and shipped at remarkable speed.  It was just over a week before I got my dress on my doorstep, from start to finish.  That’s faster than a personal seamstress.  I should know 🙂

What a complete breath of fresh air and sigh of utter relief to try on this dress straight out of the box, button it up, and exclaim, “Oh, this fits!!”  I put in a custom order, which is just $7.50, (and is free for first time customers!!), so I could get it just exactly right!  I put in every custom measurement they asked for, and changed the length of the dress to be knee-length.
