Customized with a Click

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend, and start to the holiday season. I was so happy when eShakti reached out to me a few weeks ago to customize and style another piece with them. Every piece I've gotten in the past has always been very well made and this dress was no exception.

As soon I spotted this great rust and navy print, I knew right away I'd want to create a dress for Thanksgiving. With eShakti's customization options, I chose to have the dress hemmed to knee length and the sleeves changed from short to long. Those are just a couple of the numerous options available to make sure the garment fits and flatters the actual customer, not just the model in the photo.

Being 5'-2" with a curvy figure has always meant fit challenges, from simple things like hem lengths, to more difficult things like necklines being too low or having a piece which fits my hips being far too loose at the waist. With eShakti, custom measurements can be used to create a perfectly fitting piece.

eShakti challenged me to create a piece that would allow me to 'look as good as I feel, and feel as good as I look', so with that in mind, I chose a wrap dress, the perfect cut to flatter my hourglass figure. By bringing up the hem to knee length I can show off my legs without worrying about anything else being shown off, changing the neckline for a bit more coverage, and having pockets in a dress is always a game changer! The pockets allowed me to keep my phone at hand during Thanksgiving, so I was always ready to snap cute photos of my Nephew and Niece, and my Nephew especially enjoyed leading me around the house by the ties of the dress and pretending I was his doggy.

I'm really excited that eShakti now allows even further customization by offering styles which can be done in a number of different fabrics - and the price points for their custom garments are almost all under $100!

eShakti provided me with this dress for the purpose of this post and partaking in their "Look As Good As You Feel, Feel As Good As You Look" campaign. My views and opinions are my own.


  1. The way you had this dress customised really proves just how well you know how to dress your body in a way that suits your style, because the cut is absolutely perfect on you! And the print is so you, not to mention the perfect hues for the Thanksgiving. I hope you had a wonderful (and restful!) holiday with family and friends :)

  2. That's such a lovely print and a great fit. I'm all for dresses with pockets - it is super handy to have a place to stick your phone!

  3. I love that print!! It's such a perfect piece for Thanksgiving. And yessss, pockets are the best!

  4. I actually have a couple of eShakti pieces in my closet, but I haven't shopped them in years. I have to say, this graphic print dress is beautiful on you. And I love the clutch as well.

  5. What a gorgeous dress! I love the wrap style too, you just can't go wrong with that. I have a couple of dresses from eShakti, one I like okay but the most recent one I got I just love. I do appreciate how easy it is to customize pieces with them!

  6. That dress looks fantastic on you! The wrap is so flattering. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!


  7. So very pretty Lydia ! It does look fantastic.

  8. I love the idea of being able to make the sleeves longer. Because I need the warmth in the winter, and i don't always want to add on a cardigan!!!
    This is so perfect on you Lydia!

  9. That dress is stunning on you! I love the colors! You can never go wrong with pockets either!

  10. Oh that is a beautiful dress! Love the colour and print, and the longer sleeves and pockets are the perfect touches! I wish more clothes came with pockets to be honest! :)

    Perfect for thanksgiving too. The wrap dress is such a classic, I'm wearing them in my latest post actually, haha! :)

    Hope you are having a nice start to the week, and you got some bargains in the sales. I ended up grabbing a little something on Cyber Monday after resisting temptation all weekend, haha!

  12. I own two dresses and a skirt from eShakti all custom-made and I truly love ALL of their pieces. This dress of yours is no exception and perfect for your fun Thanksgiving with niece and nephew. What a flattering wrap style on you and how fun is that clutch!
