Customize your clothing

This new to me shop, eShakti, offers adorable feminine pieces at super affordable prices. The thing that sets this shop apart is that they offer custom sizes and will make the pieces to your liking (i.e. exact measurements). Pretty amazing, right? If you shop mainly online, you know that this can certainly cut down on the hassle of returning and exchanging because you know the item will fit.
I'm currently liking the blush pink and black palette and anything will frills, lace, and bows.

lace front cotton knit dress $49.95 Tulle wrap pearl necklace $19.95 Tulle bow headband $12.95 Layered illusion silk organza tunic $69.95


Carnation hair clip $12.95 Black lace tee $49.95 Pleated cotton satin dress $49.95 Natural jute flower pin $12.95

"A woman can shop for exactly what she wants- no compromise, no premium to pay. She can ask for the fabric, color, body, styling and sizing that she likes. Earlier the information flowed one way: from the manufacturer to the customer. Now, the customer can talk to the manufacturer and easily specify online what she wants and get the clothing made just for her."
-taken from eShakti's 'belief' statement
Sounds to good to be true, right? Well, I'll let you know as soon as I purchase something, which will happen. If you've had an experience with this shop, I'd love to know your thoughts.

A really great idea- and I hear their accessories!

Kate said...

I bought a dress from them two weeks ago. It's a lovely wrap dress. I had the length and sleeves customized. They are great with shipping, and the quality of the dress is great. I'd buy from them again.

Also, I was sent a $15 credit that is good for three months, which I am planning to use on another dress!

oh, i would love to try this! i shop on-line a LOT, and even though i know my size, it does not always work in all brands. i would say return about 1/2 of what i buy on-line!

Jaime said...

Cool and unique site- thanks for sharing! I like that tunic and $70 is a good price!

Rachel said...

I'm saving all of these adorable sites you post for after the baby. Knowing my size may change, this could be just the ticket for me!

sounds wonderful! a bit rich for my blood, though, sadly...

Flowers, frills, and bows are my thing right now, too. I also love the vintage look of their tops + dresses.
