eShakti - Review & Giveaway


Oh, how I love clothes. I can spend hours browsing through racks of clothes (just ask my husband and kids). I can never seem to find the different/a little off-beat kinds of pieces I want though.

I found a company online called eShakti that has a ton of clothes that are totally my taste!

Wanna know the coolest thing about them? Well, just like their website says... ONLY at eShakti: Complete range of sizes from size 0 to size 26W on every style. And custom sizes too. And custom styling as well: you like a style,but want the sleeve, neckline or length to be different? Easy as 1-2-3. Only at eShakti

Yeah, that's right, they will customize the clothing to be exactly what you want! How cool is that?

I was able to review a piece of clothing of my choice and after literally hours of trying to decide, I ended up picking the Belted Fleece Wrap Jacket. I think I mostly liked it because with how cold it's been, anything warm sounded appealing, but I also really liked the big buttons and the funky collar. It also has cool sleeves that aren't typically what you see, so that's cool too. There's just one thing I would change and that's the ruffled hem on the bottom. I was bummed to see that when I put it on, that hem hits right at my hips and makes them look huge. Seriously, such a bummer. Also, the belt is insanely long. I can literally wrap it around myself 3 times and tie it. I could easily fix that by just cutting it in half and sewing the one end up, so I think that's what I'll do. I think I may also take off the ruffle hem and fix that up to fit me better as well. Otherwise, the jacket is super cute! The fit is great as far as the length of the sleeves (which is surprising since most things have sleeves that are waaaaay too long for me) and the actual body of the jacket fits great too. See how cute it is!


If I had to do it all over again, I know exactly what I would pick though. In fact, I can just picture this adorable and slightly funky dress with heels to be semi dressed-up or with flip flops to be casual and cute. This Pleat Waist Poplin Stretch Dress is so me!



Overall, the quality of the garment I recieved was great and the service from the company was amazing too. The issues I had certainly weren't a problem with the company (well, the extremely long belt was kinda weird, but other than that) it was just preference on my body and I really should have thought of that, being that I'm only 5' 1" (just barely, actually) and things tend to sit lower on me than they would on someone of average height. The ruffle hem would be adorable on someone of average height, so I still think the overall design of the jacket is great.

You really should check out all they have to offer because there is SO MUCH to choose from and so many different styles.

There are too many choices! I'd probably pick the Red Surplice Shirtdress. I like its elegance and simplicity.
