Blogging certainly has its perks, even for those of us who only post on a weekly basis. Considering that, as of late, all I have made time to post about is my wedding, I was particularly shocked to receive an email from eShakti, an online boutique specializing in custom clothing for women in all sizes. Since I had never heard of this awesome brand, I almost marked the email as spam, but was intrigued by the "Product Review" subject line and clicked.
Much to my delight, this eShakti online women's fashion apparel company wanted MY opinion on one of their many incredible items in their product line.
Uh, duh, of course I wanted to!

It took me a long time to narrow down my options. Seriously, gang, this site is no joke. Not only are the clothes adorable and in nearly every size imaginable, you can also customize them!
The size charts are very helpful, and you can even adjust the sleeves and length to your liking. If you're crazy you could remove the pockets, too (but who would do that?).

I sent in my measurements and received a custom dress in return! The folks at eShakti were incredibly helpful during the process, answering all of my silly questions with patience and class. It was not only a custom dress, it was pretty much a custom experience!
I decided on a sweet scallop dress to wear to one of my best friend's wedding this past Saturday. 
I got so many compliments!
Not gonna lie, I felt pretty hot in this dress.
Hey, I don't compliment myself EVER (you should hear me critiquing my fat arms and triple chins in my wedding photos!), so you should know that I mean it when I say that this dress made me feel pretty. Honestly I'm not saying that because I got the dress for free. I really mean it! "Opinions are my own," or whatever big bloggers say when they get free stuff. I'm so not used to this...but I LIKE it!

The only thing I will say negative about the dress is that it wrinkled the second I put it on, even after ironing. Oh well, it would wrinkle after sitting for a while anyway.
And here's a little collage of Laura's lovely wedding. It was a fantastic time and she was beyond beautiful! So so so happy for her :)

Please go check out eShakti! You won't regret it!

Love that dress!! You look awesome! They're the one company I've been hoping would contact me, it's hard to find something super perfect when you're bigger.

I need to check out this site! I always go with Rent the Runway, because I just don't "need" dresses for my job. That way I can look great, and return it:)
Let me know if you get anything else from here!
