Not long after I featured eShakti.com in this post, I was contacted by someone from the company who asked if I would like to review one of their garments free of charge, so I picked out a mock two-piece dress that I felt would work for a number of occasions. eShakti.com lets you customize items to your specifications (if you choose), so I provided measurements for the bust and waist, as well as a custom adjustment for the neckline. Not to nitpick, but I'm pretty sure I inputted "wide scoop" for the neckline, yet the dress appears to have a "regular scoop." I'm sure I could have resolved this with the company but I liked how it came out, so I didn't bother.
I can't find the item on their site anymore so I think it must be out of stock, but it was $69.95, a reasonable price. However I think the fabric quality warrants a slightly lower price, maybe $50 would be more appropriate. The skirt drapes beautifully but feels and looks like bathing suit material. The top is a substantial cotton blend, holds it's shape nicely, arrived wrinkled but just needed to be steamed a bit to get it back in shape. Overall, this is a sophisticated dress, it fits well and I can see myself wearing it for various occasions, dressed up or down. I would definitely consider ordering from eShakti again based on the level of service and the wide selection of unique dresses you simply won't find anywhere else for the price. I should note that I picked out a relatively plain dress that suits my personal aesthetic but they have a lot of gorgeous prints and vibrant colors, too, so give it a look!
