I was given this dress from eShakti as compensation for this review. However, all opinions are entirely my own, and reflect the way I genuinely feel about the experience and product!
I love being a girl. I mean seriously, pink is my favorite color, I love lipstick, and glitter, and dresses...oh how I love dresses. I especially love dresses that make me feel like I am stepping back in time. Back to a time where knee length dresses were at the height of fashion and flare skirts were in full swing. I am a sucker for old school dresses. Sometimes I think about what life would have been like if I grew up in the 50's, wearing retro dresses, and drinking root beer floats at a diner while listening to a jukebox...this dress makes me feel like Sandy from Grease.
asked for me to write a review on one of their custom made dresses I was thrilled.
is a company that makes their clothing for you as the buyer. Every piece is tailored to your specific measurements so that you love what you are wearing and feel like it fits your body type.
I knew I wanted to go with a dress, and I knew I wanted it to be something fun, but dressy enough to wear to a wedding ('tis the season of wedding bells am I right?!). So I chose this beauty. Complete with a bow and bicycles...and it was in my favorite color...hello perfection.
The dress fit perfectly. It hugs me in all the right places, but is very modest, and just classy. It is probably my new favorite dress, and the bicycles really add a whimsical touch that makes me oh so very happy. I really like that the dress is fit and flare, this is my favorite style of dress, and it seems to be flattering on so many body types.
The only issue I had with the dress whatsoever was the length. I am a shorty y'all. Ben and I both are not really gifted in the height department...So I never wear longer dresses like this without heels because of how they make me look shorter, and I hardly wear heels because then I will tower over Ben, sprain my ankle at least once, and have a few blisters by the end of the night. However, I made an exception for this gorgeous dress, and pulled out my nude wedges. I think they rounded out the look and length of the dress.
My experience with eShakti and their beautiful 50s inspired
could not have been more pleasant, and I could not recommend them more highly. To have a personal tailor make clothing specifically for your body type is like a dream, and this company does such a great job. I will wear this dress for years to come, and cannot wait to buy from them again in the future.
, I promise! Make sure and follow them on
