Pewter Rose + eShakti Review
______When I was contacted by the lovely people over at eShakti to do a product review on one of their items, I couldn't have been more ecstatic. I've heard a positive thing or two about their company before, and now I must share my equally pleasant experience with you!
______If you haven't heard of them before, eShakti is a women's clothing website which offers tons upon tons of pretty dresses, skirts, jackets, and tops, all which come in a custom cut size anywhere from 0-36W. Or if you want something made with your measurements, you can do that, too--you just have to pay a little extra (though your first custom dress will add no extra cost to the initial order). In addition, you can choose the dress length or if you want a different sleeve type. Basically, you can do whatever you want. Who doesn't love customization? People who are squares, that's who.
______It was difficult to choose between so many beautiful pieces, but in the end, I opted for the Pewter Rose Jaquard Dress with custom sizing. When the dress came (and ever so quickly, especially considering the busy winter holidays!), I was delighted to find that it fit like a dream. I've never really purchased a knee-length dress before, but I decided to be a little daring and go for it, and boy, am I glad I did! I quite like the modest flair that a longer length dress adds. The full, twirly skirt is also a big plus, and the material is so high-quality and has a nice sheen to it. I also love the high neckline and zippered back design. This dress is gorgeous and makes me feel like the classiest lady who ever lived.
______Why, wearing it made me feel like a cutesy housewife from the 50s who had just baked a cherry pie for her loving husband, Charles, after he came home from a long shift at work. I can see it now--we would have been eating our warm pie on a stylish sea foam carpet whilst watching I Love Lucy and discussing the latest news concerning hula hoops and Buddy Holly.
______Oh, did I mention this dress has pockets, too? Because I discovered that shortly after taking these. Any dress with pockets is a win in my book. Functional and fabulous.
______I personally find it awesome that there's a company out there that realizes that we ladies don't come in the same size all the time--even if I'm a size 4, someone else might be a size 4 but be shorter and, unlike me, actually have boobies, and thus need a differently shaped dress that gives them more boobie storage. eShakti gets that. eShakti gets you.
______Now go check out their pretty clothes, or face impending doom. I know I wouldn't hesitate to order something from eShakti in the future, and you shouldn't either!
