eShakti Review

 Like quite a few of you around the blogosphere lately, eShakti recently contacted me and offered me a dress to review.  I had the opportunity last year too and loved the dress I received then, so I jumped at the chance to do another one, especially since I'm on a shopping ban right now!  They just released their spring line and let me tell you, it was hard to pick a dress, but I found one that was totally perfect for me and I was even more excited when I got to see it in person.


You'll see in a more detailed picture below, but the skirting on the dress is houndstooth with black cats!  Seeing as I am the black cat gal, this seemed like the perfect dress for me.  And, it has pockets!  I love that it has pockets, it makes it unique, not many dresses do that.


I love the sweetheart neckline, it is a little lower cut, but if I needed to, I could wear a cami underneath.  Now let's talk about fit - I did the custom sizing and it turned out perfectly.  This dress seriously fits like a glove.  There is some elastic in the waist too, so even if I gained a little weight, it would probably still fit.  And it is comfy.  Seriously comfy.  Nice and lightweight too.


I think this is going to be a super fun dress to have in my closet and play with starting now and going well into spring and summer. For winter I can throw a sweater or cardigan over it and wear it with gray leggings or tights as you see here and maybe a pair of boots.  And into the summer, it can be worn on it's own or with a lightweight cardigan and some simple black sandals.  Maybe even spice it up with some color accents, like red shoes.  Overall I am just in love with this dress.


eShakti is offering any of my readers a discount as well - valid through March 20th - simply enter FSHNBLEDVE at checkout and enjoy 20% off your purchase!  I highly recommend their dresses and I have had great success with the custom styling - it's worth the little extra cost in my opinion!  Happy shopping!

eShakti provided me this dress free of charge for review - the opinions I expressed are all my own.
