An Afternoon with eShakti

IMG_9540 IMG_9541 IMG_9646 IMG_9585 IMG_9574 IMG_9557About a month ago, the site eShakti.com reached out to me expressing their interest in doing a collaboration on my blog and I’m so excited to finally share the final product here! A little background;  eShakti is an online retailer who specializes in creating customized pieces for women in an array of sizes (0-36W) that fit your individual body type.

They gave me the freedom to choose a product that I liked and that fit my personal style, so I chose this color-block sheath dress that I knew would flatter my body. The process of customization was simple and easy to understand. In my sample order, they asked for my height (important considering I’m 5’8″/5’9″), bust and hip measurements and then I chose my size according to what I usually wear and their guide. Upon receiving the dress, I was really pleased with the way it fit and how the customization had turned out. However, the only criticism I will give, is that I wish the sizing could be offered in a way that the bust size and the hip/bottom size could be made more tailored to individual bodies. For example, I have fairly broad shoulders and a big bust, in comparison to my smaller waist, it would have been convenient for those measurements to have been used and allow me a little more shoulder room.

Overall, my experience with eShakti was a great one and I am really pleased with the way my customized piece turned out. I recommend other gals take a look and see what it’s all about!

Guess by Marciano Goes to New Lengths

Yesterday I stumbled upon the Rochelle Dress from Guess By Marciano in store. I decided i had to try it on and here is the outcome. The dress has a wonderful chiffon overlay and comes in the three colors. The sleeves have adorable bow details on the cuffs. I immediately fell in love, however I am 5’8″ and often have a problem with hemlines being too short and in this case that was a major problem. I was planning on wearing it to an event but I wouldn’t even be able to sit down or bend over and God forbid if a gust of wind caught the hem of the dress. Although I love this simple, chic 1960s inspired style, I would suggest it to someone who is several inches shorter than I am. I had to opt out of getting it 😦
