eShakti Color Block Fall Dress (Outfit of the Day)

I haven’t gone wrong on my choices of the eShakti dresses I’ve been slowly collecting.  Their Retro styles and the inexpensive custom sizing, added to the discounts offered as first time buyers and returning customer makes it quite affordable!

I am petite at 5’0 with a voluptuous shape and have found that I fluctuate on their size chart depending on the dress having a “smocked” elastic waist panel on the back.  When it does have this great detail I wear the smaller 2X for a more fitted results.  In the 3X I find it a tiny bit loose but perfect for my beefy arms to fit through the openings – I usually put a couple of hand stitches on the shoulders and/or waist to make it fit perfectly.

Compliments abound whenever I wear these dresses.  People will walk from across a store to ask where I purchased my dress or to tell me that they just “had to tell me” how pretty I looked.  You will find me reaching for these dresses when I need a little zest to my day!

The designs are classic and have had no issues wearing them to work.  As is my style and preference, these pieces are easily dressed up or down.  That is a HUGE plus in my book.  You can custom the length and if you want pockets as well as most designs offer a various selection of sleeve types and lengths.  Their pricing for these small pleasures is less about $8 each for sleeves, neck line and/or length customizing.  You can opt for pockets or no pockets for FREE.

This dress is a beautiful plum color with blue and black color blocking.  It does have a huge back zipper that isn’t hidden.  It fit me loose enough that I didn’t need to unzip to get in it.  The material is heavy which helps keep the pleats perfectly “pleated.”  I enjoy the large pockets in the skirt and can fit my keys, wonder woman wallet and my studded cell phone in them.  You have the option to not have pockets when ordering but like I said, I truly enjoy them and don’t affect the design of any of the dresses I’ve purchased.  This particular dress is fully lined and wasn’t too hot even with the warm weather we’re still having.

All in all, I LOVE the dress.  I would prefer the zipper to be hidden and maybe a longer sleeve option.. BUT it fell on me perfectly and received compliments from just about everyone I ran in to. The colors are beautiful and this design is very well made.
