A few months ago, eShakti asked if I would like to review one of their pieces. I had never heard of the website before so I did some googling.
eShakti is a women's apparel online store that sells customizable garments. What appealed to me was that each piece could be customized to my liking.
I am quite short (ok, very short lol) so I have always had difficulty finding things to fit me correctly. I was super excited to try out one of eShakti's pieces!
I picked the Felted Wool Shift Dress, which came in black. I wanted a dress that was warm enough to wear during the winter months.
But since I planned to wear this when the weather was colder, I requested that it be made with elbow-length sleeves.
I provided my measurements so the dress would fit perfectly.
The quality of the dress is excellent. It is made of a very thick felt-wool. Even though it is 100% wool, it isn't itchy at all. I also love that this dress is fully lined.
What attracted me most to this dress was the scalloped hem. Adds a very unique touch to a plain black dress.
One main issue I have with this dress is that it is incredibly difficult to put on and take off. There is only a single button closure at the back. It would be much nicer if there was a zipper going down the back or the side.
I almost ripped the dress while trying to take it off =_=
But overall, this is dress is very well made and the quality is excellent. It's perfect for work because it isn't too fancy but still unique. I can also imagine it being paired with some statement jewelry for a party.
eShakti's customer service is excellent and product information for each piece of clothing is very thorough.
Thanks giving me the chance to review the dress, eShakti!!
fyi: was not paid to do this =P
