Fifties feel

eShakti is an internet based company who specializes in completely customizable garments, with a vintage feel.
Anything you see on the site is sort of a 'base model' because you can add or subtract sleeves, shorten or lengthen hemlines, change the collar, add pockets -- and they only charge $7.50, a price which can not be beat.

I chose the Her 50's Colorblock Skirt in the bright red and white, because I love a good striped skirt, and this will be so fun to style in the summer.

The cotton skirt is pleated and quite full. It has a hidden zipper and the waistband has a smocked back panel, so it's very comfortable to wear. The sizing was accurate, and any possible alterations are depicted in a little drawing so you can easily judge how the garment will look.

Because of the customizations, nothing stocked in a warehouse ready to ship - it is all made to order, and therefore the wait time is about two weeks. Even if you don't want any alterations, you still have to put in your height so that no matter what you choose, it will be the correct length for you.

As someone who is petite, and who pretty much has to hem everything, I can certainly appreciate this!

I love this whole outfit! How did you manage to make red and green not look Christmasey? And I've been eyeing this skirt in black and white for so long - I should probably just go ahead and get it :)

Oh my gooodness, Lyddie! That skirt is just perfect for you. And I'm glad that it fits like a dream, too. I love that you're wearing it with your stylish leopard jacket. I think that leopard jacket was a fine investment indeed, 'cause you surely are getting lots of wear out of it! :)

FASHION TALES said...

Such a lovely colour combination. You chose a great piece, especially styled with the leopard and green knit. xo/Madison

What a fab skirt! It's so happy that it's getting easier to find clothing that fits well on petites these days because of companies like eShakti.

That is way awesome! I wonder if that is sort of the future of online retail? I certainly hope so because nothing beats reasonably priced alterations to make a piece of clothing fit you perfectly/to your liking. I could see bigger companies eventually jumping on this bandwagon.

Eli said...

Ahh what a perfect fit, I've gotten a few emails from them but never the chance to check out the website. How cool!

Tallia said...

oh my gosh I love your hair!!

That is the cutest skirt ever! I love the stripes. Muah

Katie Q. said...

I've been staring at this skirt on their website and I hadn't decided on buying it or not since I wasn't sure if it would be super long on me. (I'm short as well.) Seeing it on you, I'm thinking i should put it in my cart, the length looks great on you!

I love everything about this outfit! That skirt is killer, but the coat is seriously slaying me. :)

Alexandra Shook said...
