real fashion with eShakti {review} & discount!

*this post sponsored by eShakti. top was given in exchange for a review. however, all opinions and thoughts are completely, 100% honest and my own.

If you been browsing online for a while or are even a blogger, you'd know that eShakti.com is a popular online retailer. I think I first heard about them two years ago and I've been hooked ever since. They have a wide variety of tops and skirts, but are more famous for the vintage inspired dresses that I absolutely love! All apparel comes in sizes 0 to 36W!

Last month, I took advantage of a 20% coupon code they offered on a blogger's site and a $25 credit for first time orders to purchase my very first dress from eShakti! If  you live in U.S. or Canada & you've never ordered from eShakti before, be sure to register to get your $25 coupon! It really does help!

Now, I was totally excited when eShakti contacted me for a review. I chose this bow tie chambray top since I have been wanting a chambray top for a long while. I feel like it's a classic piece of clothing that will never become outdated. I love the whimsy feel of the large bow. The pleating flatters my middle section.

I opted to use their customization tool to ensure that the top would fit me better. As being a really petite person, I am about 4'10, and not proportionate to most standard cuts of clothing. My waist and bust measurements are early the same! lol. I mostly have problems with clothes fitting me too loose at the shoulders, sometimes too wide around the arm holes, fitting my bust, and then being too tight at my waist! boo.

However, with this bow tie chambray top I felt comfortable in it. The top was forgiving and fit lovely. There was no gaping around my arms to see part of my side or back! Amazing! You know I sure did enter 12 in the upper arm measurement! The only complaint I have is that after a while of moving, the shirt rose and bunched at my shoulders in the back. I kept needing to pull the shirt down. It's not eShakti's fault, it's probably because of me sitting in my wheelchair as it's a more structured, mid-weight material & I do not have the best posture.

Also to be noted is that the first time you'd like to possibly customize a dress, skirt or top, it's free of charge, otherwise it's $7.50 which is not that bad considering you are going to receive a garment that fits you in all the right places, according to your size! I love this feature that eShakti provides! If my budget was bigger, I'd totally be ordering more clothing as I love the vintage looks and the option to have a more modest style with added sleeves or changing the neckline or hemline.

If you're looking for some inspiration check out their pinterest page or keep up with them on facebook.

On my wishlist is: the bicycling poplin dress , make a beeline poplin dress and the be a sweetheart dress!

Thank you eShakti for making beautiful, well made clothes and helping me feel more confident & fashionable!

Oh man, cute tops like that are on my wishlist this summer! I realized the other day that all I have are dress-up long-sleeved shirts... doesn't really work here in Arizona, ha. It's sooooo hot! I want cute short-sleeved tops! Until then, I'm basically living in cut-off jeans and t-shirts. It's the only way I can stay cool.

I am really not a big "bow" fan...but that shirt looks great on you - I, the confirmed bow hater, would even wear it! I have just discovered eShakti, and I can't believe how reasonable the prices are. I wondered if the quality was awful - so it is good to get a review to find out that it is not. I won a gift certificate last year to a clothing company that is featured often on blogs ( it was not eShakti). I was bitterly disappointed at the way the dress looked when it arrived, compared to the photograph - both in color, and fabric type, and quality. Glad to hear that eShakti doesn't seem to have such issues. Have a fantastic day!
