Hey Budget Babe! I'm going to my boyfriend's Fraternity's Charter dinner at the end of the month and I'm not sure what to wear! He is supposed to wear a suit which I guess means I should wear a dress. Problem is I'm a tall (5'11"), plus size (14), college student. Can you help me put together an outfit that isn't going to break the bank and is long enough to not expose my behind?
I just discovered the perfect place for you to score a gorgeous dress for just such an occasion! So excited. Ok, are you ready? It's called eShakti, a fabulous online boutique that carries a complete range of sizes from size 0 to size 26W on every style.
Moreover, they offer custom sizes and custom styling as well: you like a style, but want the sleeve, neckline or length to be different? You got it! eShakti enables you to easily custom-style your garment right during the ordering process. eShakti also offers fast, 3 business-day shipping, even for custom garments.
And the prices are stunningly reasonable, meaning you will find evening wear for well under $100. I love love love the styles, too, very unique, on-trend and stylish. I stumbled upon eShakti while browsing Fabulous Fun Finds, so I have not had a chance to order anything from them yet, but judging by the customer reviews on their site, I'd say they have a loyal following of happy shoppers.
Another cool tidbit: Shakti in Sanskrit means power. Hence by eShakti they mean "The Power of the Net." Love that.
Below are just a few options for evening, browse eShakti.com for dozens more. Don't forget to hit the overstock section for deep discounts!
Beaded maxi dress, $79.95
Gold chevron print dress, $59.95
Sequined wide sash wrap top, $59.95
