Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm excited to show you my new eShakti dress today! I was super pumped when eShakti contacted me to review a dress from their new spring collection. They always have a great selection of retro-inspired dresses and their new collection doesn't disappoint. There are plenty of bright colors to get you in the mood for spring! As you can see, my dress is a very bright coral orange. I don't own anything else in this shade so it was a fun challenge to style it.

I decided to go for a 60's vibe in this outfit. It's kind of hard not to with this dress! Jeanie said I looked like Mad Men. (I said I looked really boobsy). My makeup certainly channeled the era in a slightly more modern way. I wish I would have had a better picture of it!
I used eShakti's custom size feature for this dress. It's the best to be able to put in your measurements and get a dress that's actually going to fit. The bust and waist fit perfectly (hooray!), but the shoulders were a tiny bit too big. This is probably just an error in the measurements I took though.
For the custom styling, all I changed was the type of sleeve. I'm not a huge fan of cap sleeves so the change to regular short sleeves was great. I kept the above-the-knee length and it hit at the perfect spot. I love that there is no need to hem an eShakti dress when you put in your height for custom sizing.
Also, I think you need to know that this dress has pockets. Pockets automatically make a dress go up one full cool meter.
I've been impressed with both of my experiences with eShakti. This order arrived incredibly fast - especially considering this was custom sized. The quality of the dress is really nice too!

Are you guys doing anything fun on this fine March day? I'm not. My water heater is broken and I'm sure there'll be repair guys traipsing through my apartment when I want to be sleeping. I also have to study for a statistics test when I haven't had a math test since high school calculus.
On a positive note it's only three days until spring break counting today!
