my new little black dress c/o eShakti

Saturday, September 13, 2014

I was super excited when eShakti recently contacted me wanting to collaborate. Particularly because they offered to send me an item of my choosing AND they said they would customize it to my measurements. All of this in exchange for a review. Yes, please.

They had a great assortment of things to choose from. Truth be told, I took an absurd amount of time picking this dress out. I wavered back and forth between a number of dresses but ended up settling on a cute, yet practical, little black dress. My wardrobe is surprisingly lacking in little black dresses.

eShakti has a ton of stuff and all of it is available for customization. I picked my size but then added all of my measurements. I have never had a piece of clothing customized so I wasn't sure what to expect.

The fit on this dress is literally perfect. It's tight in all of the right places but covers up things I don't want the world to see.

Customization is $7.50, on top of the price of the dress (or whatever item you choose). I pay  more than that to have my pants hemmed so I'm thinking it's a total deal!

Just from my shopping around, I'd estimate the average dress price to be around $65, plus customization. For a dress that fits this well, total steal!


I didn't wash pre-wear, but it's a very thick cotton material (that you need the right undergarments for) and it is super comfy. Downside: cotton black tends to fade and pick up a sh!t ton of dog hair which just happens to already be EVERYwhere in my house.

I would like to add, this dress is uber comfy to drink wine in! The shoes I'm wearing, not so much, but the cotton dress pretty much feels like I'm in pjs (can't go wrong with wine and pjs). 

Shipping: it was about 2-3 weeks from order date to delivery. I'm thinking that's decent considering my piece was customized. I also appreciated that it came in a cardboard box as opposed to being in a crumpled pile upon arrival. 

Here are some other dresses I'm coveting:

Will I order again? Very likely and I will definitely customize my pieces. There's seriously nothing like having a piece of clothing arrive by mail and fitting you like a glove.

Verdict: thumbs up for my eShakti experience! Happy shopping
