Opportunities

dress: c/o eShakti //blazer: Frenchi via Nordstrom B.P. //necklace: Nordstrom B.P. //nail polish: 'Big Apple Red' OPI

I've always been envious of my friends N and R, who have been lucky enough to travel back to their home countries, and experience custom made clothes, for not very much money. A few summers ago, N came back with a blazer she designed herself. I almost wanted to ask her if she got it from Nordstrom, but no. She got it while abroad, for just $20. Amazing, right?

Little did I know, I would get the same opportunity as my friends, in the comfort of my own home. A few months ago, I was contacted by eShakti, a company that makes custom-sized as well as standard-sized clothing for women (sorry, guys!). Their website is unique from your typical department store's, because you have the option of playing fashion designer by customizing the length, to the type of neckline of your dress/pants/skirt/blouse.

cross-body bag: Michael Kors (thanks, Mom!)


Their customer service was easy to work with (though, honestly, I have read otherwise from other people who have ordered from them). So, it could be different for everyone. The processing and shipping also took a while. My order was confirmed on the 25th of November, and I received the dress on December 19th. If any of you order from this company, the only thing I would look into more is their shipping time. In all, I would recommend eShakti because the dress I received was of really good quality, and it fit like a glove. For more information, visit their website and/or social media outlets: eShaktiTwitterFacebook.

P.S. I don't want you guys to think I'm a sell-out, just because I received this dress for free. This is the first free item I've received from blogging, and you can trust that I would never feed you lies, as I make it a goal to be an honest, and real blogger. It's still me, guys! You can always count on that.

*I did not, and will not be getting paid by anyone for this post.

I've ordered from them before, and I had basically the same experience as you, but I totally love how customizable it was, even though I wasn't the biggest fan of the shipping stuff. Also, totally unrelated, I love that elephant pendant(?) you have hanging on your wall!
