i was contacted by a representative from eshakti earlier this year and they asked if i'd like to sample one of their items. i really appreciate when companies reach out to me and i had heard of the brand before (with mixed reviews), so i figured why not?
plus, i can never turn down a great dress :p

above is NOT a picture of the dress that i received. i'm posting a current item because they were kind enough to send it a while ago and i have not had time to post a review.
i chose a dress that had a cardigan over it, it was like a two-in-one style dress. it had a gray cardigan with a red dress. great color pairing! i chose it because i do not have anything like it.
the thing that i liked about this brand was it does custom sizing. if you're anything like me - petite - you know this is definitely a good thing! especially when it comes to items like jackets, which they also have. sleeve lengths can be such a pain in regular sizing.
they do offer some incentives like signing up for their emails and currently have a free shipping promo, but they are a bit on the pricier side. not THAT pricey though, considering if you opt for something custom. i was a bit disappointed because i thought the two in one dress had a detachable cardigan (it was probably something i looked over in the details), but it did not. it was all one dress. other than that, i was very pleased.
i also really appreciated that the representative and company were both VERY patient with me. i received this sample a few months ago and i had so many things going on in my personal life, but i wasn't ever pressured to post a review right away. i like dealing with companies like that.
HAVE YOU HAD AN EXPERIENCE WITH ESHAKTI? DO YOU EVER BUY "CUSTOM" CLOTHES ONLINE?
ftc: i was sent a dress to give my honest opinion about.
