Not too long ago, I was contacted by eShakti again to try out something from their new Spring/Summer collection. And, oh, what a collection it is! I certainly had a hard time selecting something! Ultimately I chose this darling heart blouse…
Unlike last time, where I stuck with a standard garment, this go-round I opted for custom measurements, which proved to be much more successful! In case you’re unfamiliar with eShakti, here’s the rundown… The company offers wonderful garments, many of which will fall right in line with any vintage lovers wardrobe. Additionally, all of their garments have customization options. Some are just for custom measurements. Yes, you can get a dress tailored to your exact measurements! And for only an additional cost of $7.50! Although, through February 28th (tomorrow!), customization is free! Other custom options the option of taking away embroidery and embellishments. So if you really liked the cut and color of my top, but aren’t keen on the hearts, you could order it without! My favorite options by far are the skirt and sleeve options. While I rarely go to the mall, I have on occasion passed by window displays and said “Gosh, that’s a darling dress, shame about the skirt length though.” Well, at eShakti you can order a dress tailored to your liking! Whether it’s short or long, you’ll find something to suit who you are.
Each garment page offers up the specs for the garment, including zipper location, material, care instructions, and other details. Where the garment is made, however, is not included. So, a little “Made In…” disclosure, this blouse was made in India.
Have a special occasion coming up? Or maybe a bride seeking affordable, but stylish bridesmaid dresses that your bridesmaids will want to wear again and again? Then check out their Bridesmaids collection. Heck, there are dresses in this collection I would buy for everyday wear!
Another thing I love is the size range. One thing I hear a lot is that vintage is only for skinny gals. While that isn’t true, I will admit that vintage can be difficult to find for those with a waist over 32 inches. This is where websites such as eShakti are perfect. Their garments take cues from the fashions of the past, thus offering up retro delights perfect for swing dances to car shows for women of any shape. Whether you’re a petite pixie or a full figured femme fatal, eShakti can provide. Their standard garments go up to a size 6X or 36W, and their custom measurements can accommodate any size.
Still unsure? First take a peek at their Real Fashion spread that has photos of people who have purchased some of their garments. Then, when you find something you like, use the promo code TMCREDHED to get 20% off your purchase!! How swell is that? But hurry! The offer expires March 10th! UPDATE! I heard that the coupon code did not work for a few days! I am deeply sorry! eShakti has extended the coupon code to March 20th.
