To a T

If you aren't familiar with the online shop eShakti, they offer a unique product line of fully customizable pieces, at prices which are attainable for the budget conscious shopper (especially when taking advantage of a sale or promotion).

For me my height is often my biggest issue when shopping, especially for a maxi dress - I've had to hem every one I've ever bought! With eShakti, I put in my height and they hemmed this dress perfectly for me.

This is not the first time I've received a sample from eShakti and I've found that when ordering a completely custom piece, how you take the measurements is crucial. The measuring tape needs to be held very taught and you need to be standing up straight. Don't pad your numbers because you think you'll need that extra inch, it will result in an ill fitting piece!

I'm in love with this scarf print maxi, the drape and flow of the crepe fabric is beautiful, and the perfect fit can not be beat.

eShakti provided me with this dress for the purpose of this post, my views and opinions are my own.


  1. Getting a maxi dress when you're petite really is next to impossible. I'm perpetually tripping over (and frequently ripping) the hems on the ones I have, even in heels - it's really just not a cute look. I didn't know that eShakti made maxis but I'm going to have to take a look at their selection now, because I'm not sure where else I'll ever be able to find one the right length. And besides, this one is fabulous on you so naturally I'm motivated to check out their selection!

  2. It's such a pretty print! Love the dress! I've never found a maxi dress that actually looks good on me, haha. I'm always drowning

  3. Love this dress on you and the scarf detail makes it so special.

  4. What a stunning dress! And it works so well for cooler weather with the moto jacket!

  5. I face the same issue with maxi dresses! Always have to alter them...this dress is perfect for your height ans so stunning!

  7. Lydis this dress is absolutely gorgeous ! you look fabulous - it is not often that we see you in maxis - but I've gotta say this was a marvellous choice.
    PS here i am procrastinating while I should be doing homework….

  8. I don't think I had seen a maxi from eShakti. Absolutely love this one. The print and neckline are so pretty and I love how it flows. If I ever order from them again, I will take my measurements. My piece from there last year was huge on me. I do love that you paired this with gold. The bag, moto jacket and sandals are all so lovely. =)

    P.S. Loved the title of this post too. So clever, Lydia.

  9. That is the reason why I don't buy maxi. Yours is so wonderful and I love how you styled it.

  10. Beautiful geometric dress. You look gorgeous.

  11. This dress is gorgeous on you. I've tried them before (c/o items) and honestly was not that impressed with the fabric or craftsmanship. I hope they've improved because it's such a great concept.
