eshakti dress

When I was thinking about what to wear for my sister’s bridal shower, I knew exactly which dress I was going to pack. This beautiful eShakti dress has a fun color, pattern and beautiful band that highlights my waist. And it was a hit! Little did I know that the shower my mom planned was going to incorporate my sister’s wedding colors, navy and yellow, so I was unintentionally matching the theme. Of course my family still thinks I did it on purpose, well because normally this would be something I would do on purpose (I LOVE THEMES)! Anyway, this dress is SO comfortable and I am even more impressed by eShakti this time around because I asked to customize the dress (which is a free service by the way). The dress was originally one that went past the knee, but when the length goes past my knees, sometimes it cuts my legs off at a bad spot, so I decided to make it a length that is just above the knee. And it is perfect! Also, this dress and my last dress from eShakti has pockets, how great is that?! Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets. I can only say good things about eShakti, they have such a great variety of clothes, styles, colors, patterns and the clothes are so HIGH QUALITY. Seriously.

It was a lovely shower and so much fun to see relatives, neighbors and some of my sister’s friends. We ate fruit and vegetable kabobs, played trivia to learn more about my sister and her fiance and drank sangria. It was so fun, I wish we could do it all over again. Just makes me look even more excited about her bachelorette party the first weekend of August!

    Wow I love this dress! The ones I got from eShakti I was less-than-impressed with, but this one is gorgeous!

      Oh no that’s sad! I really love both of the ones I received. It took me soooo long to pick one though. I’m sure there are some other styles that wouldn’t fit me as well or maybe I don’t like as much, this one is such a nice chiffon material and the waist band jewels (whatever they are) haven’t budged or fallen off or anything! I think I remember you got a blazer or jacket from them didn’t you?! I really loved that!!!!! Are those good quality?

    That’s a super cute dress! It’s a bit odd that the middle band thing doesn’t go all the way around your waist, but that’s not too bad an issue. Your shoes are also super fantastic, love them. Good to know the shower was fun.
