Well her name really isn’t beauty but I felt very beautiful wearing this dress from eShakti.com. When I was first contacted by them to do a review I decided to try something I wouldn’t normally wear. I pretty much stay away from patterns and lots of colors, but I took a leap of faith with this one and I am so glad I did. This dress is beautiful, the fit is perfect and it has pockets!
In its original state this dress would not have been an option for me. On the eShakti website this dress is shown as tunic length which means it would be a shirt on me, lol. I feel most comfortable wearing dresses that are knee length or a little longer. Those lengths work well with my height and frame. Everything seems to shorten when you have junk in the trunk! I choose not to go at the entire process of taking all my measurements, which is outlined here. I ordered one size down from what I normally wear; I put in my bra size, gave my height measurements and selected a longer length.
So would you guys buy a customized dress from a retailer? Here are a few other pieces I have my eye on which would easily fit into new my shopping budget.
Bow tied neck poplin dress - this would look awesome in white or khaki, with a pair of pastel pumps for sandals for spring. I think this would be a beautiful after graduation dress for me!
On the dot dress - perfect for work, I would add a red patent leather belt, camel color blazer and red pumps.
Undulation skirt - I love this pattern, it would look great worn casually if you shortened it and put on a simple white tank and denim jacket, with wedges or flat sandals. If you decided to wear it longer pair it with a black blazer and high heel sandals for work.
