Another thing that sort of pushed me back on here was being contacted by the online retailer eShakti, a store that I absolutely love. When they offered me an opportunity to review an adorable little dress, well, I could NOT turn that down!
For those of you who may not be familiar with eShakti, they are an online store that offers incredibly affordable and cute fashion for "real people" of all shapes and sizes (0-36). What I really love about the store is that you actually have the ability to customize the touches on items that you order. If you prefer a v-neck to a scoop neck on your dress, you can have this! If you prefer a longer sleeve over a cap sleeve, you can have that, as well.
I'm all about flexible fashion at a fair price.:) I agreed to review the dress that they sent to me, so without further ado, here it is. I was asked to customize it in some way, so I adjusted the length to one that was more flattering to my height. Overall, I think the dress turned out very well and I'm excited to add it to my spring wardrobe!
I ordered the size 0 and the fit was nearly perfect. The only slight issue that I have is with the neckline, which doesn't lie perfectly flat as it should. Aside from that, I love the fit and flare shape of the dress and how it nips in at the waist, the vibrant blue color, and the gorgeous floral embroidery at the hemline. It's just a simple cotton material, but it's perfect for the warmer weather and I can either throw on a pair of flip flops for a casual daytime stroll around town or pair it with some strappy sandals and bold accessories for a dressier evening look.
Unfortunately, this dress has disappeared from the website, so it may be completely out of stock, but there are literally TONS of cute items to choose from. If you are a reader in the US or Canada, you can sign up on eShakti's site and receive a $25 gift coupon for a limited time.
Have a terrific weekend!
