Nostalgic with eShakti




Hello Fashionistas! Hope everyone had a fashionating weekend. I had a very quiet, yet adventurous weekend (if that makes sense). My hubster took me to see a very interesting lake which I will share with you guys on IG. While at this lake, the hubster said: "Look, it's nature's runway!" He was right (don't tell him I said so) and I titled the pic just that. Then, I remembered I had to take some pics of a gorgeous dress I received from eShakti.com in exchange for doing a honest review of what I thought of their product. When I was contacted by Jane - from eShakti - I was grateful for the opportunity yet skeptical. Dresses or not usually my thing. They never fit right. I'm more of a jeans/pants girl. However, when I went on the website to roam around and see what they had, I was very excited by the "Jamaica" dress. Now, I'm not sure if you guys know or not, but I was born on the beautiful, tropical island of Jamaica; although I've been in the States for the majority of my life. But, if you've been to Jamaica, the memory will live with you forever. Just the thought of ackee & salt fish, roast breadfruit, fried dumpling with callaloo makes me nostalgic for my birth home. I digress. I've seen a few posts from other bloggers who've done a review for eShakti and already knew about the customization service they provided and that their sizes range from 0 - 36W. When you visit the website it clearly lets you know "Real fashion for Real People" which I can appreciate that. 

On to the dress. Other than loving the name, once I received it (which was pronto after receiving an email letting me know it was on its way via DHL, tracking number and all) I immediately wanted to see if it fit. And, it did. If fit me exactly how I wanted it to. Cinched at the waist. If you've been reading my blog or my other social media outlets, you know I love a cinched waist. The partial side zipper makes it easy to slip over the head, it has pockets and  it fits below the knee. The best part is, it's machine washable, made of cotton with a light crisp feel. This dress is listed for $59.95, which is a steal when you can add your own customization. You can change the sleeve, change the length or even remove the pockets. I'm very pleased with this dress and it will be a piece I will treasure forever not just because of the name but I felt really amazing wearing this dress. Hope you guys like the pics we took.

  5. Elegant and gorgeous dress. That's so cool that you can customize the clothing on the site. That makes shopping so much more fun. Usually when I am shopping, there is usually one aspect of a garment that I want to change. I love how you styled this look. I love your blog and Im now following via bloglovin!
