eShakti Dress Review

I was so excited to be contacted by eShakti to review one of their dresses! If you haven't heard of eShakti before, they are a company out of India that specializes in custom vintage-y dresses. I love that you can customize the length, sleeves, and necklines on most of their designs! Although the dresses were a little pricey for me, around $70, I really liked the styles I saw and, of course, the one I picked out!

It took me forever (like 2 weeks) to pick out a dress because I am so indecisive and liked so many things! When I finally decided and placed my order (changed the length of the dress as one of the custom options), it was shipped via DHL 9 days later which I thought seemed good for a custom dress. They provided a tracking number and it came 3 days after that...but I wasn't home so they left a note for me to sign and then I got it the next day.

 I absolutely love it! The top is sheer. I love the flower print. And it has pockets which I think is totally awesome!

It came a little longer than I thought it would - I choose "above knee length" and as you can see, it IS above knee length. I just thought it would be a little higher as they also have a "knee length" option which is what I would consider this dress to be. Maybe this is because I said I was 5'8 and I'm really 5'7 and 3/4! So, if you want it a little shorter, give them your shorter height :) Other than that, it fits great. I love the fuller skirt too - makes me want to spin around like a little girl!

Brides and Bridesmaids
I really got excited when I saw their bridesmaid collection. Now, those dresses are a good deal! They have beautiful bridesmaid dresses all for about $60-$90 and each bridesmaid would be able to order her specific size - no annoying alterations! Also, if the bride wouldn't mind variety, each girl could choose a neckline, length, and sleeve style they would be comfortable with (or the bride can decide what she likes best, even if it's different from the original style on the website). If I knew about this site before my wedding, I probably would have ordered from here! Here are some of my favorite bridesmaid dresses:

The pink dress is $60. Green dress is $75. Blue dress is $70. See more of their bridesmaid dresses here. If you have ever been a bridesmaid, you know those are amazing prices for bridesmaid dresses! And I know when I was looking for bridesmaid dresses, I ran into the problem that they were all so short. I ended up finding dresses that I loved for $80 at a Prom store that did come to the knees - but they were hard to find at a good price. Seriously, I think every bride should check out this site!! My only concern is that they seem to change their styles a lot, so you might want to contact customer service or have them all order at the same time just to be safe.

Deal: Save $25 on your first order and free customization on your first order too! (O my gosh, that would make bridesmaid dresses as low as $35!!) Well, plus shipping which might be around $12 - at least that's what showed up for me.

(I received this dress from eShakti for review purposes and was not compensated otherwise. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own, don't worry, I would not lie to you!)

  6. LOVE the dress you chose. I'm hoping I'll be successful enough to get one of those emails some day ;)

    Seriously, though. The dresses are adorable, but from all the blogger reviews I've seen, I think you win for both taste and suitability! it looks great and works for you!
