Polka Dots// eShakti

Hello everyone! 

 Hope that you had a fabulous day. Mine was super long, be on my feet in the office all day. But, classes start soon and I know I may miss the work environment when I sit down to write a 10 page paper. 

I gave a little preview of this dress on the teeth reveal post, because I was just so excited about it. eShakti contacted me a little bit go asking me if I would want to do a review for them. Of course, I said yes!  







eShakti is a really awesome online clothing company that has sizes from 0 to 36. But, more than having a full range of styles, you have the option of customizing eacharticle of clothing. 




For example, the dress that I chose, the 'Belted Poplin Dress,' was originally longer and had capped sleeves. I usually like my dresses around knee length, so I ordered it a tad shorter and I am not a fan of cap sleeves at all. There have been many-a-times that I have not bought a dress or top because of the cap sleeves. But, with eShakiti, I could just simply change it to have elbow length sleeves - no problemo! 

Also, this dress is super comfortable and fits like a dream, thanks to their custom sizing. 

Plus, shipping was really fast! I was seriously freaking out when I got it - I put it on and did not want to take it off. 

Plus, it has pockets! Dream dress right here? I think so. 

I wore it to church and received lots of compliments on it. One of the ladies told me I looked like Doris Day - that pretty much made my day. 

Even my best guy friend liked it - which is saying a lot, let me tell you what. He said that he really liked the belt. When I told him it was connected to the dress, he said, 'Oh, that just ruined it for me. You shouldn't tell people that.' He was kidding...I hope. 



So, if you haven't been over to eShakti's website you definitely should. What are you waiting on? Scoot. :)

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog! That's one of my favorite outfits. ;D And thanks for saying you liked where I took my photos. Lol! I always love hearing that because my town is so junky and it's always a challange to find a nice place to take photos! The beach is kind of my fall back (and by "kind of" I mean "mostly definitely" ;D)

I really like the way you styled this. I almost want to go find myself some gloves or something, now, because it's so "tea timey." (:
