I am definitely someone who takes garments to a seamstress or tailor to get things to fit correctly, or I will customize something to get it to be the way I want. So when I was asked by eShakti.com to review a garment, I was excited to see just how it all worked for an online shop. The premise of the site is to provide affordable clothing that can be purchased in standard sizes, or that can be customized to fit to one’s exact measurements. When ordering, standard sizing is available from 0 to 36W and they also ask for your height. For a small fee, if you wish to further customize your order, you can enter all of your measurements to receive a garment that is made to fit only you (and they will save your meausrements for additional and future orders)! Depending on the type of garment you are ordering, you can also choose sleeve length, sleeve type, and even the length of your skirt or dress. For instance, if you really like a dress pattern, but you would like a halter top in a shorter length as a casual dress, but maybe you would also enjoy it sleeveless in a longer length for a dressier affair, you can purchase the same dress in two different styles.
The internet allows us to be extremely customer-centric by enabling the buying to be inter-active.
Shakti means power in Sanskrit.
Internet + Shakti = eShakti.com.
I chose the Asymmetrical Fan Pleat Blazer because of the awesome design and detail. As soon as I added it to my “Awesome Outfits” board on Pinterest, it was repinned more than anything I have added to date, which means many of you out there agree! I chose a standard size, but entered my height and customized the sleeve to be a longer length. It took only two weeks from when I put in my order to when I received this beautiful, lined wool boucle jacket, exactly as it was pictured on the site and it fit perfectly.
I styled it two ways to show that this jacket is incredibly versatile and can be worn on a night out or for running errands with my son (who decided to join in the picture). This jacket is one of many fantastic pieces on the eShakti site, including retro flare dresses, skirts, and cardigans. If you are new to eShakti, your first time registration will also earn you a $25 gift certificate. I signed up myself, but I’m still deciding which dress I want because there are so many cute things to choose from. If you love retro styling, tailor made to fit you perfectly at affordable prices, check out eShakti.com!
