When I was searching for a black bridesmaid dress for Landen’s wedding back in August, I searched high and low on the internet (and in stores) to find something great. It’s a tough job to find black dresses in July, but also everything was so expensive and/or ugly and/or too long/too short.
After an extensive search, my sister, Janssen, recommended looking at eShakti, an online clothing website that specializes in personal alterations — basically, you can purchase any of their clothing items and then send in your exact measurements and have them make it to fit you perfectly. You can also change the sleeves, hemline, and neckline on almost all of their clothes. I’d never heard of it, but it sounded amazing! Immediately I found seven or eight dresses that I loved, and I ended up ordering this one in black. It was pretty and simple (but also kind of fun for a LBD), very reasonably priced, and I was able to have it altered to knee-length. It was absolutely perfect for the wedding, and I got tons of compliments on it.
I just received this purple dress in the mail from eShakti and again, it is the perfect fit. I had them add little capped sleeves, and now it’s a fun, interesting party dress that I can wear to all my holiday events this year. I was particularly impressed at the quality of the fabric, and all the details that are so well done. If you haven’t checked out their website, they have tons of beautiful fall and winter dresses that have just arrived!
