[Dress gifted to me by eShakti]

When eShakti reached out to me a few months ago and asked me if I'd consider working with them I was skeptical. They claimed to create made to measure garments to fit any woman.. they also claimed to be completely customisable. I was intrigued. 

When I looked on their website for the first time I was blown away. Hundreds, and I mean HUNDREDS, of styles of dresses that were all 100% customisable and made to measure. I thought to myself "surely this is too good to be true".

I scrolled for around an hour looking at all of the beautiful dresses. There was just so many that I would quite happily wear.. an array of different colours, cuts, styles, necklines and lengths – almost all of them customisable so you can alter the neckline or sleeve length to suit your style, comfort zone and needs. 

I then stumbled across this beautiful dress. Red, navy, pink and black – all colours I adore and wear regularly – in the most amazing bold and striking print. The thing that drew me to this dress most was not only the style, but the print – Orla Kiely-esque and utterly stunning. 

I then measured myself and input each of the measurements. I added on an extra half inch to insure that it would fit perfectly.

I chose to have a rounded neckline with short sleeves and a below-the-knee length. I kept the belt and kept the pockets.

This dress was 100% customisable. If I desired a square neck or a V-neck I would have been able to have had it.. I would have also been able to have a mini length, floor length, long sleeves, no sleeves and no pocket. It's so amazing that eShakti offer such a customisable range of garments.

The dress arrived within a two week time frame – beautifully boxed and with a dress maker quality tape measure!

I unwrapped the dress and was stunned. More beautiful than the photos on the website, this dress fulfilled and exceeded my expectations. A silky opulent material that's floaty, a dreamy thick belt, pockets at the perfect height, and not to mention the perfect fit of the dress as a whole.

I've never worn a dress that looks so beautiful on my figure.. perfectly crafted and made to measure.

I decided to team this gorgeous dress with some Clarks ballet pumps that I purchased in the summer sale. They are so comfy, naturally I bought them in two colours, so expect to see them both make multiple appearances on here.

I also added my Karl Lagerfeld signature cross body bag into the mix. A gorgeous electrifying red and stand-out signature – this bag is perfect for making a statement. Definitely a bag for girls who want to be bold with their outfit choices!

I highly recommend eShakti. Not because they kindly gifted me this dress, but because I truly love everything they stand for. Women of all shapes and sizes should be able to look and feel fabulous in whatever they want to wear. eShakti give women a platform to create their dream garments.. from occasion dresses to everyday wear. I am so happy that they got in touch with me because I adore this brand and am so chuffed to have found it 1) for myself and 2) to share it with you guys!


  1. It's BEAUTIFUL! And you look beautiful in it! :)

  2. I truly like the dress. It looks very nice. I like how the patterns are and how easy to match it with a cardigan.
