Weekend Wear: [eShakti Review]

Monday, February 9, 2015

 Tunic: eShakti c/o
Leggings: GAP (Yes, these are maternity leggings, so comfortable anytime!!)
 The other weekend, we enjoyed the most beautiful winter wonderland at my parents'!! It was a little chilly/windy (as you can tell from the squinty-face-I'm-cold-smile, but the snowflakes were so light and fluffy and falling so beautifully. Their backyard made for a perfect backdrop.
I was so excited to get this new, custom tunic from eShatki. I'm a sucker for all things asymmetrical, so this caught my eye with the collar detail; plus it looked like it would be long enough to cover my bum, perfect for one of my favorite go-to winter outfit/mom-uniform--boots + leggings + tunic/sweater. Bonus: when the Mr. commented how it was very 'Princess Kate-like', even though I didn't necessarily think of that, I figured if he thought it looked as good and stylish as anything she wears, I'm all for it. ;)
I was given the opportunity to review the experience of ordering a custom piece from eShakti, an online custom clothing company. Being 5'10", I thought it was a good fit, since I usually buy tall/long  sizes and don't always comfortably fall into standard sizes, as far as length goes.

After making my selection, I was walked through a clear step-by-step customization process; first I entered my measurements (thanks to help from the Mr.) and then moved on to the other options including, sleeve type/length (cap-sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, elbow, short, sleeveless), tunic length (above hip, hip length, low hip). Then, I was pleasantly surprised with the option to 'remove pockets'; these were the only part of the top that I didn't particularly care for so I was happy to have the option to omit them. 
 After placing my order, I wanted to confirm I had, indeed, selected the longest option possible; through a simple inquiry it was confirmed quite clearly that I had. I also appreciated getting a confirmation email, including all measurements and options I had selected (it was a proud moment seeing that bust size measurement - thanks breastfeeding!!). :) My interaction with eShakti was pleasant, easy, timely, and straight-forward.
Keep eShakti in mind for all your custom clothing needs as they are great to work with, and so convenient - pretty easy to order a custom piece from the comfort of your own home!! At first, I found a lot of their clothes to be a little mature for my style, but after looking more was able to find plenty of pieces that would complement my closet. I also appreciated their selection of modest-cut dresses, appropriate and flattering for any age/size. eShakti would be particularly ideal for similar, yet different/personalized bridesmaids dresses, with all the fun custom options available.
