Yay for Friday! Hope you all have had a great week! This off shoulder denim dress is a new favorite, great to dress up or down…and it was made for me. Really!! I recently learned about eShakti, a brand that’s all about helping their customers find the perfect fit. Not only do they carry sizes 0-36, but you can further customize the pieces to get a fit that’s tailored to your body. And, it’s also very affordable! Just add $9.95 to price of the piece for customization, most pieces are under $100!
This concept was particularly appealing to me because being petite, I usually have to take my clothes to the tailor to be altered in some way. It can be difficult to find things that fit right off the rack! Most of the time, the length, sleeves, or straps (on dresses) are too long. When I ordered this dress, I chose the semi-customized option (as outlined below in #2) and provided my size, height, and preferred length (above knee).
Here is how it works:
- Choose a style…they have an extensive selection of dresses, skirts, and tops.
- Order as-is, using their size chart and providing your height. Then, make modifications to the sleeve and skirt lengths, if desired. On some styles, you can even modify the neckline!
- Or, go totally custom and provide more detailed measurements (plus the info above in step 2), for a made-to-order garment. You can also choose to add/remove pockets. I happen to love pockets, so I kept them for this dress!
Your piece(s) will arrive in 12-18 days from the time you ordered. If you are thinking of trying this brand, now is the best time! Currently, eShakti is offering $30 off on your first order to new customers plus free customization. They have also extended an extra 10% off to L&L readers with code loubiesandlulu (through 7/10).
Overall, I was very pleased with the fit and quality of this denim dress! (It also comes in black.) I don’t usually go for a fuller skirt because I think its too much volume on me, but it was a fun style to try. And, when it was scaled down for my height, I actually ended up loving it! To give the look a 70’s feel, I paired the dress with a cognac fringed clutch and platform wood block heels, both under $50! eShakti also has this great denim off shoulder top (in black, too) I have my eye on, that would be perfect with white jeans or shorts…
Let me know if you order your own custom piece…I’d love to hear/see what you choose! Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by! xx
