Swan on a Misty Beach - An eShakti Review

Several weeks back eShakti contacted me about doing a product review for them and after really taking the time to peruse their website, I will fully admit, I was beyond thrilled.  I'm sure you've heard about this company before, and if you haven't I would highly suggest taking a mosey around their lovely site as well.  To cut to the chase, they offered me a sample of any of their dresses and it didn't take long for me to spot this swan printed/scalloped collar beauty and become giddy with joy at the thought of it becoming part of my wardrobe.  Goodness, I am a sucker for anything with a cute collar and animal themed print.  Actually, their whole pre-spring/resort collection had me so smitten with it's 1950s vintage inspired theme, that I will very likely go back and make a purchase in time for summer.

Coat & Tights: Target
Floral crown: Little Honey Pies (Etsy)
Brooch: Antique Mall
Shoes: Clarks (gift from the Mr.)

As for the website itself, you are able to customize many of their gorgeous pieces to suit your own tastes and body type.  For me this is like an answer to prayer being a five foot two, small-boned but very curvy and bosomy gal - it really makes for a difficult time finding dresses that fit me properly for my small shoulders and short stature, but at the same time aren't too tight in my bust and hips.  Not such the case for eShakti dresses.  Being able to plug my very measurements in, made for the perfect fit all around - better yet, I was able to customize everything from the length to the kind of sleeves, and if I wanted pockets or not.  Pretty sweet, eh?  

The quality of the dress itself is awesome.  Really, I couldn't ask for more in an article of clothing - and I will admit, when it comes to quality in dresses, I am really picky.  For the most part, I tend to stay away from stores that offer super inexpensive dresses & clothing.  Not because I don't love what they offer, but because the items never hold up for me for more than a season long and being a stay at home mom on a budget, this will just not do.   I know this piece will last me for miles and is versatile enough to throw a cardigan over and wear with flats for the every day run to the store, or dress up with shimmery tights and heels for a more special occasion.  

Other than that, the shipping was speedy fast - and at my door within a week.  Yes, can you tell I am a happy camper? - Well perhaps not in a couple of these photos after I got caught in the rain.  Such a pouty look on my face...hehe.  Nonetheless, in this eShakti swan dress, this gal is happy as can be.  

Alright darlings, that's my verdict - I love eShakti!

Have a lovely week!

Love Bunches,

  18. Beautiful! I love the coat! And the dress is super cute! I just heard about eShakti on the braided bandit today :) I should definetly order something there too!


  19. You look absolutely amazing!!! I really adore that dress on you, eShakti couldn't have done a better job. It really makes me wish that I had taken up their offer, but at the time I had just quit style blogging so it didn't feel right to go back on my word like that.

  20. A swan handle!
    I love your fashion!


  21. Great choice, Marisa! ;D I'm a sucker for animal patterned clothes. That's so cool that they let you customize some items! I'm really short, too, only 5'1", so most pants and long sleeved pieces of clothing are usually too long for me :/.

    Awesome photos, too, btw! ;)

    Hope you're having a great week, sweet Marisa! ;D

  24. Your pictures are so amazing! I love the effect the mist adds, and your coat is lovely!

  25. Oh my gosh these photos are so beautiful, love how your tights perfectly match that lifeguard stand. When I read that you can add pockets to these pieces I might have done a little gig, what girl doesn't love dresses with pockets?!

  26. I'll have to go and peruse their website. That dress is perfect for you! It's just so sweet. I love the way you teamed it with yellow tights and red shoes. Clarks are always amazing xxx
