Oh my goodness, I feel like I just walked straight out of 1960. This dress is a total Betty Draper season one for sure – perhaps minus a few inches of hemline (and hosiery!) though… obviously. The moment I hopped on to eShakti.com‘s website, I knew I absolutely had to have this dress.
Haven’t heard of eShakti.com? Get ready: your life (and wardrobe!) is totally about to change. eShakti.com is an online women’s apparel company that will customize clothing just for you! The site offers pretty comprehensive sizing (sizes 0-36W) or you can even enter in your own measurements to create a specially-tailored piece just for you! Additionally, you can either keep the piece as shown in the picture on the site or you can choose to alter it beyond all recognition – sleeve type, hem length… it’s all up to you!
When I placed my order, I was feeling a bit lazy (typical). Instead of taking my own measurements (which was sure to be a disaster, let’s be real), I just ordered a normal size in the dress (size 6). While I kept the sleeve as shown, I chose to lower the hemline to knee-length based on my height (5’5″). I simply clicked the photo of the length I wanted, entered my height, and pushed “submit”. Easy as pie!
Hate cap-sleeves? No problem. Super tall? Not an issue. Like a piece but need it to be more modest for work? Fret thee not.
Best part of all? Everything on eShakti.com is super reasonably priced! Many of the dresses are even under $100! I especially love this flamingo print bow-front knit dress (as is or would also be so cute with a shorter hemline), this notch-neck cotton poplin dress, and this embellished crinkled gauze caftan dress (would be absolutely perfect for a beach getaway).
