'Thy Gown? Why, Ay - Come, Tailor, Let Us See't'



Love this dress from eShakti! Love the vintage vibe (i.e., the cut), love the peek-a-boo cutout in the back and love that I got to custom tailor it to fit me perfectly (well, I had to measure myself which was a first and let me tell ya, some parts aren't so easy to do on your own!) All in all, I think I got the perfect fit though, and it was really fun!
If you guys have never heard of eshakti.com, I urge you to check it out. You have the option of custom ordering clothing in your exact size or you can go the traditional route and pick from the sizes they have. You can even play around with the length (I opted for the above the knee version for this dress)!  Also, the pricing is really reasonable! They were actually mentioned in this month's issue of Lucky Mag.
It took about 3 1/2 weeks for the dress to arrive, but seeing that it came from India and that it is custom, the wait was well worth it! Nicely made, great, sturdy material, so all in all, I'd definitely buy from eShakti again!


 






What I'm Wearing:
Dress: c/o eShakti
Sunspecs: Vintage YSL
Shoes: H&M
Lips: Mac Red

Thinking of taking a small hiatus from blogging. It's been 2 years now, and it has been an absolutely fun ride! Thank you all for always commenting and for giving my little blog a small place in your busy day! I'm sure I'll be back soon since I don't think I'll ever stop shopping and what better way to justify the addiction than to say 'oh, it's for my blog' hehehe...

Feel free to keep in touch!
Lots of Love,
Amy

  55. Awesome! I'm doing a review for them this weekend! A friend of mine told me about them, she thought I might be interested in reviewing them, so I sent an inquiry months ago, well I hadn't heard back from them, so I was kind of bummed. Finally a few months ago, I got an email from them, they must not have gotten the email I sent them, because they approached me about doing a review for them. So, I was stoked of course. I got my maxi dress a couple of weeks ago, I haven't tried it on yet, but it is adorable and it looks like it's going to fit, you never know until you try it on though. It's definitely very well made. I'm wearing it tomorrow, when my friends take me out for my birthday, that's if it fits. In any event, I'm going to do the review sometime between Thursday and Sunday. I can't wait to try it on! I'm definitely impressed with the quality!

    That is an adorable dress! If the one I got works out, I'll definitely shop with them again! I definitely recommend it to anyone reading this!

    By the way, I'm Sarah, I am a new follower and I just wanted to tell you, you have an awesome blog! I'll be here a lot!
