I don't know about you, but it seems I can find a dress that fits great, but it's ALWAYS in colors or fabric I hate, or I can find a color/fabric I love, but have an ill fitting dress.
So this Valentine's I thought, why NOT try Eshakti?
Not only do they have great Spring dresses, that are ready made, they have custom made dresses as well!

And with prices under $70, you just can't beat the style and design either!
I decided to order their STRETCH COTTON POPLIN BLOUSON DRESS in a super teal color, that would last all year round/
Made out of stretch cotton poplin, this teal shirtdress is styled with an elastic waist and removable sash tie belt, above a buoyant skirt for a scrumptious blousony silhouette. It slips on over head, thanks to its spread collar and split front. Featuring raglan cap sleeves, and a ruched pleat bodice, it is comfortable and moves with you. The ruched pleat skirt, features a wide banded hem and not 1 but 2 side seam pockets. The dress comes knee length, But you do have your choice of 2 neckline, 5 sleeve type and 6 length options. to really customize the dress for you.
I was THRILLED with the color and the amazing cotton poplin fabric, which it seems like only eShakti has. Seriously with our hot and humid Summers, that fabric is like a dream- it breathes, flows, but always looks GREAT. And did I mention, it has POCKETS! How many times at a formal event do you wish you had at least 1 pocket? And these pockets are DEEP! I can slide a set of keys in them easily!
Apparently there is was a major oops on the length as you can see, as it is NOT right below my knee! But after wearing it for the pictures, both Miss Grace and I agreed that the long skirt was pretty, and actually makes the dress more formal. The sash belt was also just as long, and I could actually wrap it around my waist multiple times. The neckline is a bit odd, with the inner fabric showing and it not laying flat. While the model dress looks the same, I think it is a matter of too much fabric that is causing the issue, and I probably should have reduced the bustline measure by 4 inches (at least) to account for all the extra fabric and it probably would've ft a lot better on top. I probably will take in the bust and waist for a more tailored fit for me, as both are very loose (apparently the way the dress fits accounts for the issue, so do consider that when ordering!), but I will definitely be wearing the dress all year long!
It only took a few minutes to place my order online, once I had my measurements, and the dress arrived 10 days later! That is super good timing! And another thing that I really love about eShakti!
So head on over to eSahkti and check out their dresses to day and don't be boring on Valentine's Day, be special!
