Review - "Look as good as you feel, feel as good as you look" #Eshakti


I have been on the lookout for a long polka dot dress for ages and when Eshakti reached out to me and offered me to participate in their "Look as good as you feel, feel as good as you look" campaign (#Eshakti #RealFashionForRealpeople), I was hoping to finally get the perfect dress. The company sells ready to wear clothes (mainly dresses) that can be customized according to the customers measurements and special wishes. I adjusted my chosen dress in length and at the arm sleeves. Sadly, my model is not available anymore, but this one came in as a close second choice and might just have to come home with me at a later point. 

The company took about two weeks to produce my custom order from the moment I ordered to shipping it internationally and then it arrived one week later at my home. The dress itself seems very well made out of a heavy cotton material that fall nicely to the ground and hits the floor in the back and just skims my ankles in the front. It is a true wrap dress with an extremely long ribbon to tie in a nice bow. I have worn it twice so far and have been utterly impressed with the dress. I got several compliments when wearing it and feel beautiful whenever I put it on. It swings nicely while walking, but the long hemline does get a bit in the way while walking up and down stairs. This is my own fault though, as I did request to alter the hemline to my height and make it into a floor length dress and in the end picking up the skirt gives me an even  more lady like feeling.  The only real downside - should I have to find one - is the hole on one side to pull the string through, which is needed in each real wrap dress. Because the fabric is heavier, the hole pulls open quite a bit and I need to adjust the wrapped strings sometimes. I usually wear a camisole underneath anyways so it won't show any skin.

To summarize my experience - I am totally in love with this beautiful dress and am pretty happy with the custom service at Eshakti. Definitely need to look at other of their beautiful dresses for the Christmas and holiday season! Definite recommendation! 


For this outfit, I added my beloved denim jacket to the look and used all tan/brown accessories. My new Villa Smilla bag is the perfect addition to my bag collection and works so well with my tan boots.
