The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
I’ve seen a number of my favorite bloggers favorably review gorgeous clothing from eShakti.com, an online retailer offering fashionable and affordable customizable clothing, sizes 0 through 36. When I was initially contacted to do a product review in October, I was both honored that this small corner of the blogosphere was a blip on any clothing retailer’s radar (and yours, I do not take any readers for granted), and well, overwhelmed.
Overwhelmed? The OCD paralegal? Well, yes. I could not make up my mind while exploring eShakti’s extensive and beautiful offerings. I wanted to pick a dress I thought would flatter many different women, and I wanted a dress that was so versatile it could go from day to evening, and summer to fall. I know, I don’t expect much from a dress, huh? I took so much time selecting a dress, you’d think I was getting married in it.
When I did pick THE ONE, I then waffled over submitting custom measurements, because I’m really a size 4-6 dress on top (broad shoulders), and a 2-4 dress on bottom (with no real waistline in between), but decided eShakti’s size 4 was close enough to my actual measurements. I had the option of selecting custom sleeve lengths and hems, and picked no sleeves for versatility with an at knee length hem. Ordering was very quick and easy. eShakti is the only site that has ever asked my height, which being a shorty is a huge factor in whether I’ll look good in a dress.
eShakti shipped my dress quickly. I’ve returned so many unsuccessful online catalog clothing (and boot) orders in the past that I was a bit worried when I opened the box. But as soon as I tried it on and zipped it up, I knew eShakti had sent me one of the loveliest and best-fitting dresses I’ve ever had the pleasure to wear. To be honest, I felt a little like a princess, and like someone finally got me.
The first place I wore my eShakti dress was yesterday evening to our office holiday party. Even though The Absent-Minded Professor was feeling poorly, he graciously took these pictures at a pretty location near our house, as the evening light was going fast.
My eShakti sheath dress is perfect. It flatters my boyish figure (gotta be real, folks), is extremely comfortable, and has pockets. Even though I styled it for the party with antique rhinestone clip-on earrings (bloody ouch), high heels (bloody ouch ouch), and a vintage evening bag from my aunt, I know this dress will look equally good in an office setting, so expect to see it again real soon, re-mixed for work.
Thank you so much, eShakti, for giving me a chance to review a dress and share your terrific product with my readers. If you haven’t already, I encourage you guys to check out the beautiful clothing offered at www.eshakti.com/. Right now, eShakti is offering a 25% off site-wide discount through December 7, so it’s a great time to order if you haven’t before.
I’m also sharing this outfit at Not Yet Dead Style’s Visible Monday, because when you’re wearing a dress this fabulous you know you’re helping to remind everyone that women of a certain age still very much have it, and when you can order a dress to fit your unique measurements, you’re going to feel confident and beautiful.
