I had just recently been hearing a lot about eShakti, so when they contacted me about doing a review on one of their custom pieces, I of course jumped at the opportunity and I am so glad that I did. Eshakti is an international fashion design company that specializes in custom made clothing for women from size 0-36. You can choose from their standard sizes or you can completely customize a piece to your exact measurements. Even if you don’t decide to completely customize, you also have the option to change the sleeve type, dress length, and the neckline on many different items, you can even choose if you want pockets. If you do decide to go the custom sizing route (which I highly recommend), just make sure to have someone else measure you to insure accurate measurements. Of course I decided to go with a dress, but it was really hard to pick, because they have so many vintage inspired dresses that I love. At first I really wanted to go with a more fitted dress, but unfortunately they were all sold out of the styles I liked. It would have been nice to try the custom sizing option on a more tailored style, since it can be very hard for me to find a fitted dress that fits my top and bottom half equally well. Oh the dilemmas of being a pear shaped girl! ;) I will definitely choose a more tailored style the next time I order from eShakti. I ultimately went with this grey fit and flare dress in a jersey knit. They carry a lot of 100% cotton dresses, but I was looking for something with a little stretch that wouldn’t wrinkle so easily. I also wanted something in a more neutral color so that I would have more styling options. I went with the custom sizing option and had my husband take my measurements, changed the dress length to above the knee and had the pockets removed. I know, I know, some of you are wondering why in the world I would have the pockets removed! I love pockets on dresses as much as the next girl, but I do not like the added bulk that they tend to give my hips and I didn’t want to take the chance. All in all, I am very impressed by this dress, the quality is amazing and the fit is almost perfect. I say almost, because the top is slightly too big and could stand to be a little more fitted, but that could have been our error with the measurements. I know that I will get a lot of wear out of this dress for years to come, and I will definitely be ordering from eShakti again.

  • What a wonderful pick! This dress definitely has a lot of potential. I love the changes you made to the dress and the pop of color with the red shoes. I also like the practicality of pockets but agree that sometimes they make the dress a little bulky. You look absolutely gorgeous! I got contacted by them to do a product review too and of course I also chose a dress :). I found it so cool how you can customize the dress to your size. I’ve never had that done before so I’m definitely excited!

      Thank you, Jill!

  • I would love to hear from them, as I heard so many good things about this company Love this dress on you, grey is one of the colors that is very popular for fall, and I love how you styled it, the red wedges are super cute ( i would love this outfit) and I think you can wear this year round. I too, like dresses that arent 100% cotton because of wrinkling factor. Love that it accentuates the waist too. You look lovely!

    Tamara this dress is lovely and it suits you great. Isn’t eShakti great? You styled this beautifully with the red. I adore the red wedges and fun dangly earrings. I am too wearing a flare, sort of vintage dress today with red shoes and red lips.

      Thanks, Kate! I can’t wait to see which one you picked! I had a really hard time choosing.

      • Me too!! I also agree with what you said in another reply in that I think I’m a life long customer of their brand too. I love that you can customize the garments. I love sleeves and hate it when cute dresses come sleeveless!

        • Truly, Tamara

          I completely agree about sleeves! A dress with sleeves is so much cuter! ;)

  • I’ve been hearing a lot about eShakti lately too! They have a few skirts I really want.

    Adorable shoes!

    • Truly, Tamara

      I was really impressed by them, Heather. You should definitely order them if you were on the fence at all. I’m a lifelong customer now :). Thank you so much for stopping by!
