Custom Dress Made Just for Me! (and a GIVEAWAY!)




So a while back, I was approached by eShakti.com   I had never heard of them, so I was a bit skeptical.  I did some research, and found out eShakti is a women's clothing company that specializes in custom fit clothing.  They have some super cute clothing that changes with each season.  They offered me a free dress to review and share their story with all of you!  I spent several lunch hours at work browsing their site.  They have super cute stuff.  Some dressy, some casual.  GREAT stuff!  And here is the cool part, many dresses you can totally customize!  

eShakti allows you to custom size your dress, meaning that you can choose standard sizes (like 10, 12, 14) or you can give them your measurements and they make the dress to fit you.  I did this, and my dress fits like a glove!  But not only that, but since they are making the dress just for you, you can customize it.  You can add sleeves, remove pockets or embellishments, change the hem length, or change the neckline.  I chose this dress, but chose to make it knee length and remove the sleeves.  Looking back now, I sort of wish I had chosen 3/4 sleeves for this dress now that it is cold....so I wouldn't have to layer it.  

My dress fits great!  Here it is....

Front.. (LOVE the design on the front...so flattering)


The only issue I had (and it would be solved with a black bra...) is that the arm whole is a little bigger than I prefer because you can see a sliver of bra under my arm.

And the back.  I wasn't standing up totally straight, so it is a bit bunchy.  Sorry.
Hello giant dancer's calves! 

This is how I styled the dress for church...with a cardigan and leopard belt.

eShakti got the dress to me super fast.  After I submitted my order, I got the dress in like a week.  If you are needing a holiday dress, why not get one custom made for you?  The prices aren't any more than buying a dress at Dillards or Dress Barn (two places I normally buy nice dresses).  If you have a hard-to-fit shape, or desire special stuff (longer hem, longer sleeves, etc), they can get you just what you need.

And here is the AWESOME news!  eShakti has given me TWO $25 Gift Cards to give away to some of my readers!  Just enter in the Rafflecopter below!  You can leave a comment, follow me on Twitter, tweet, or tell me your favorite style to enter!  Contest will end November 26, 2012.  Winner will be notified via email.  Good luck!

  1. This is a really cute dress-- I've never heard of this company before, but they have a super cute red peplum dress that I think I'm going to buy!

    Oh yeah loved the way you paired your dress with the cardigan and leopard print belt--very chic!

  2. Neat idea. It seems like there's always something about off the rack dresses that makes them not fit right.

  7. Love! I have been wanting to try them for a while. I've got a weird shape and it's hard to find well-fitting dresses. I end up getting a lot of things tailored which makes them very expensive fast!
