I got to pick out a dress and customize it at no cost in exchange for my honest review
I picked the Shawl collar sash waist poplin dress
I have always been a bit of a tomboy. I was never really into dresses and skirts when I was younger. Now that we live in Florida though I am addicted to dresses. There is just no way I can go all summer in shorts or pants. I need light, comfortable, breathable dresses to survive down here. Now I’m a mom and I work outside the home, so I need to sort of look like a girl sometimes. I have a few of the Maxi dresses with thin or almost no straps, but I needed something a little more sophisticated for work and the rare occasion I may go out that doesn’t involve McDonald’s or the beach. eShakti has so many beautiful designs and colors to choose from. I love the bright pastel colors for Spring and Summer, so I picked this dress in Radiant Orchid. I was able to customize the design and fit of this dress. I was able to pick the length, sleeve design and whether I wanted pockets or not. The process was very easy, and was kind of fun. It was cool to get to pick a design and have it made just right for you. It was much easier than searching through different stores or sites hoping I would find one that would work for my body type. These are not $10 off the rack dresses, but the prices are still very budget friendly for the design and the quality.
I love the cotton poplin material of this dress. It took a little getting used to because it’s not stretchy like some other materials, but now I love it. It is light weight and very comfortable to wear all day, even in the heat and humidity. It doesn’t bunch up on me or stick to me, so I can move freely in it. This is machine washable and dryable. I have worn this to work a few times now and I get a lot of compliments. The dress has a very cutesy retro feel to it that I love and I love to show it off. I am really very happy with this, which is great because normally having to shop for clothes makes me break out in hives. I would definitely recommend eShakti and I can’t wait to order another dress from them!
