I think by now y'all know I'm Southern. As a true Southern belle, I really love dresses--especially ones with a retro look. Recently, I was given the amazing opportunity to choose a dress from eShaktito review. For those of you who haven't heard of them before, their tagline is "We design. You customize."
I was intrigued by this "customization thing," so I visited their website and was immediately smitten with their dresses and a bit surprised at how affordable their prices are! There were so many dresses I loved I had a hard time choosing one, but I finally settled on a dress that was the perfect "retro-modern" dress for me. When ordering my dress, I opted for the customization option. My husband helped me measure for the dress, and it was really easy. I input all my measurements and decided I wanted the dress a little shorter than the one listed. I'm a short girl--only 5'2"--so dresses that hit me mid-calf make me look not only short but also "stubby." The cool thing about eShakti is that with their customization option, I was able to easily change the length of the dress. (I could have changed the neckline and sleeve type if I'd have wanted also.) I waited patiently for my dress to come in the mail, and when I received it last week and tried it on, I was in LOVE!
This is the Her Fifties Colorblock Dress. It fits me like a glove. Normally, dresses like this do not fit my body type. If I find a dress that fits my hips and...ummm...posterior, then the top of the dress is too big. If a find a dress that fits me up top, the bottom of the dress is too tight. Since this dress was made specifically for my measurements, it fits all around.
I love the sweetheart neckline! Since the top of the dress fits perfectly, I don't feel overexposed, which is really important to me. I try to dress stylishly but modestly as well.
The navy and white combo looks great paired with a red lip and red heels.
I honestly couldn't be happier with this dress! I totally agree with eShakti when they say their dresses are "Real fashion for real people." If you haven't checked out eShakti yet, I encourage you to head over and see all the outfit eye candy! You can also find eShakti on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.
