Pre-V Day: eShakti.com Clothing Review





Rich cream/black eShakti heart cutout mock two piece dress, Navy thrifted belt, Black GoJane lace-up boots.

This is Inspirafashion's first clothing review!  Upon receiving an email from eShakti.com, a unique online women's apparel store, to review one of their items, I was very excited especially after browsing through their beautiful selection of clothing.  Arriving at the site, the first line of words that stood out and stuck to me was "One size does not fit all and all sizes are not created equal. For too long women have been forced to conform to standard sizing that too often doesn’t fit properly."  That exactly is what eShakti stands for -- creating clothing for women of every shape and size who then can freely express their love for fashion.  
I was able to pick out any item off their online apparel store to review, and the first item that caught my eye was the Heart cutout mock two piece dress.  It's even perfect for Valentine's Day coming up! :).  Their description of the item was very detailed, which really helped to know what kind of fabric, length, size, and even the way it was made.  
What drew me to the dress was the sweet cutout heart on top and the full length skirt on the bottom -- with the lovely ribbon details surrounding the edges.  Even more so, it's beauty factor jumped another level with the polka dots on the top part of the dress.  
Another detail I adored were the on-seam pockets!  Always a bonus for dresses -- where when you're out, you can simply place your little necessities, like a wallet or keys, in the very pockets of your dress.

The cotton fabric material of the dress is definitely of great quality.  The way the dress was made, was a perfect fit!  I went through the process of getting it custom-made on their website and it was really easy to complete.  All I had to do was click on the custom-size button and choose on the drop-down menus of my body measurements in inches, such as "shoulder, bust, chest, etc." 

When I had trouble figuring out what they meant by each body measurement, they had a "How to Measure?" button conveniently on the side which showed, with measuring tape, how to measure each body part.

Along with custom-sizing, they also have the option of custom-styling!  I actually really loved how the dress was put together to-begin-with on their site, but if you wanted to, you can custom-style your clothing item to add sleeves or even to lengthen or shorten the length of the dress.

Overall, I really recommend you lovelies to visit eShakti and try it out for yourself!  Click here to visit eShakti!  They have a deal where the first time you buy an item, you can have free custom-fitting/styling!  In addition, for custom-fitting/styling, it only takes 3 business days to ship and 7-8 business days to deliver, which is amazing for something intricately made just for you.  Happy shopping lovelies! And hope you're having an amazing week so far. :)

<3, Kathleen.

I think it's seriously how amazing it is of them to set it up so that each garment is made to fit you! It's really the details that count! Besides that, that dress is adorbs on you, the heart cutout is beyond perfect for valentines day. Definitely a cute way to show some skin but not skanky.

ON THE OTHER HAND, it was so nice to finally see you face to face and not via the computer. You're super cute! Heh, what teams are you looking to join? I want to do it all! haha hopefully I'll be seeing more of you now :)

It was really great seeing you at BARE, btw ;)
