I was contacted by eShakti, a clothing company which offers customized clothing with a vintage vibe and I was given a wide range of dresses, jackets and tops to choose from for a review.
I am overjoyed with the idea that you could customize your dress. I always have a tough time finding a nice dress to go for special occasion or weddings. I don't know how many times when I picked out a potential dress, I said to myself," I wish the sleeves are a bit longer, the length of the dress a bit shorter and maybe if this has a pocket, this dress would be perfect".
I picked Nautical cotton sateen dress which is made out of cotton spandex.
This is a navy A-line dress. I picked this dress as I like dresses I could dress up or down to get the most wear out of it.
The dress is made out of spandex cotton. It is a relatively substantial fabric which stretches a bit with spandex. It has a very cute nautical buckle belt.
This is the picture of the dress shown on the website. As you could tell, that looks quite different from what I have on. When you place an order, you fill in your height and there is a detailed size chart which you could pick from to fit you the best. I also customize it to short sleeves, above the knee, v-neck and a pocket added. I like the new neckline I picked out as the plunging neckline shown on the picture is not for me. I am so happy with the dress length as it is just above my knees and it is the perfect length for me.
Add a cardigan and it is less formal and can easily be turned into appropriate work attire.
With a striped cardigan and it is another way to wear this dress.
This is how the back looks. There is a side zipper on one side of the dress for easier slip on and off. Also a pocket is made for this customized dress. It is so handy to have a deep pocket.
I am very happy with this dress and I know I can get a lot of wear out of it. Very impressed with the quality of the dress and the customer service. From the time I placed my order online to when I receive the dress, it took less than 10 business days. I got an email confirming my order right after I placed my order and a few days later, I got an email with the shipping and tracking information. It is shipped by DHL and it goes right to your door step. I appreciate company who send products by courier and have the item delivered in a timely manner.
