Free Dresses are the Best Dresses

Two years ago I had the opportunity to review a dress from eShakti, an online boutique specializing in custom clothing for women in all sizes. I had a ton of fun choosing a dress made especially for me and of course wearing it (and writing about it here). 

Much to my delight, eShakti reached out again recently! Even though I rarely blog!

So here I am writing again because I got a free dress. Is this where I write #sponsored #ad #blogger #bloggerlife? No? I have no idea what to do anymore.

Back to the shopping.

Similar to last time, it took me a while to narrow down my options. 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 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?).

Oh and by the way, these dresses are inexpensive, especially considering the customization. Yes I got this dress for free, but I will likely buy more from them because the price point is under $100, most often under $60. They also customize jeans. JEANS. I'm super curious about that. I can't imagine what a pair of jeans that properly fits looks like but I sure am willing to try.

I added my measurements to their site and received a custom dress in return! The color and neckline are sublime on this dress. The pockets are killer, too. The only thing I will say negative about the dress and experience is that it wrinkles faster than I eat cookies. So there's that.

I'm sharing a few snaps from my day yesterday, at the office and at an event for Women in Wireless wearing my new dress. Danielle Moss, co-founder of The Everygirl, spoke at our event! She was so inspiring, fun, and adorable. Love that lady!

Anyway, my dress easily worked for both day and night. I was quite flattered by the compliments I received! I plan to wear this over Christmas as well. I can't find the dress on the site now since it's a sample, but here's a similar option (under $50!).

Oh and here are a few of me trying to be a fashion blogger. And failing at it. Failing hard.

You're supposed to look off in the distance, right? Awesome. The conference room has a window.

Looking off the other way. Completely natural.

Looking off to the distance of the conference room. Trying to not crack up.

Nailed it.

If you're curious, the last time I worked with eShakti I decided on a sweet scallop dress (now out of stock, sorry!) to wear to my friend's wedding.

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

I love the idea of being able to customize the dress! It looks great on you and the neckline is super. And yes, pockets are necessary.
Nice job!
