I’m a rather small (tiny) human being.
Shifting into “adulthood,” I’ve been blessed with the special challenge of finding clothes that fit me. Clothes that aren’t sporting the latest Disney Princess, or flowers on the backside, or a bejeweled hemline.
The struggle is real.
Because of this, I flourished in the land of thrift stores, where clothes are cheap enough to
destroy tailor to my fit and my liking. But, there are some times I rather just wave a magic wand over a dress and have it fit.
Enter online store eShakti.com!
eShakti is a clothing store that offers complete customization. Not only will they ask for your exact measurements, they will lengthen hemlines, cut out pockets, add sleeves, and even change the neckline.
Have you ever thought, “too bad this isn’t a maxi dress” or “I wish it came with sleeves“? Now you can be in charge of the design!
All you have to do is decide. Dum, dum, dummm.
Deciding was absolutely the hardest thing I could do. But with the help of my friends and family, I finally decided on this burgundy turtle neck dress* with exposed zip.
I paired it with a pair of my new Alla pumps from Just Fab.
DRESS: The dress is high quality, made with material that will last me ages. The exposed zip adds a little somethin’-somethin’ and because it’s rather plain, it can be accessorized for a variety of occasions.
FIT: Time for true honesty. I’m not pleased with how it fits me. I gave them my exact measurements. My hope was that this curve-hugging dress would hug me in the right way [girl logic], i.e. no belly pouches. I do not believe they made any kind of mistake in making the dress. I’m just not pleased with the way I look. You may think differently.
STYLE: I agreed to a turtle neck, which was a gamble, since I’m the type of person that feels a tuft of hair on the back of her neck and screams, “IT’S CHOKING ME!” Then I’ll fall to the floor and make strangled noises until someone offers me a hair tie.
All that to say, the turtle neck portion of the dress is higher in person than it appeared online. If I knew this, I wouldn’t have chosen this dress at all. I’m that high-maintenance.
Nevertheless, I am hooked on this web site. I force myself to stay away before I lay some real money down. I love the choices. I love the customized fit. And I love being the designer of my own clothes.
I LOVE CONTROL!!
