When I was contacted by eShakti to do a review on one of their products, I was thrilled! I have seen lots of blogger buddies posting outfits in their beautiful dresses, skirts, tops and jackets and couldn’t wait to try something out for myself.
Picking out something from eShakti was not an easy task though… there are tons of gorgeous options from staple jackets, to unique patterns and retro style dresses. Since the holidays were coming up, I opted for a dress that had an embellished bodice full of sparkle. This silver sparkle sheath dress arrived at my apartment the day before a fancy dinner with my boyfriend’s boss, so I immediately decided to dazzle in this dress!
Unfortunately we didn’t get any pictures that night, so when taking pictures for the blog, I started thinking forward to Valentine’s Day! A little sparkle is always okay in my mind, especially during the winter months (it just makes you feel better) so I thought why not pair the dress with some shades of pink, including my raspberry-colored coat and my pink reflective pumps. I of course had to add a touch of MAC Love Forever to have an all around pink outfit. This would be a great choice for Valentine’s Day at work or date night!
A Review: I am very impressed with the quality of the dress. I have only lost a couple sequins and the lining on the inside is wonderful. The fit is amazing as well! The sparkles highlight the smallest part of the body and the length is perfect. I usually wear dresses just above the knee, but the extra length really gives this dress a classy, fancy feel. I would certainly recommend this dress to you and eShakti as an online retailer if you are looking for a new place to shop! I will definitely be ordering from them in the future! You can pay a little extra for a custom fit by placing in your measurements too!

Elle, I started branching out with coat colors my freshman year in college. Something about wearing a bright color made me feel better about walking across campus in below zero weather 😉
