WYWW #9 and What We Wore

What You Wish Wednesday at the end of the post!
____________




 








My wonderful hubs and daddy to BD did a little photo shoot for us yesterday!  I love the pictures even though they were taken on my iPhone (my regular camera is already packed)!
*BD is wearing a white wrap dress that I wore when I was little, with a red bow and her brown Salt Water sandals.
* I am wearing a custom eShakti dress, red bubble necklace and Kenneth Cole shoes.
A while back eShakti  contacted me about doing a product review for an item from their website.  So I went and checked it out and found out that they are an online clothing company that specializes in custom clothing at inexpensive prices.  And when I say custom, I mean custom.  When I picked this dress (which took me a while because there were so many cute styles ranging from casual to dressy) I got to tell them everything.  I told them all my specific measurements, I had options for pocket or no pockets (pockets, duh :)), neckline and length.  My dress arrived and fit like a glove because it was made for me!
I particularly love that I got to choose the length.  I don't know if you have noticed, but the selections for dresses right now are short and shorter.  Being that I am already 5 '10' (ish… maybe more), I currently can't find dresses that are not too short.  For this dress I opted for a much longer cut so I could have no worries as I chase after and pick up BD!
The other thing that was awesome about the custom dress for me personally was the waist. Because I am tall, the waists on dresses always hit above my waist.  I thought that was how it had to be, so I have always just accepted awkward fitting dresses.  But because of my measurements the dress hit my waist just as it was supposed to!  
Anyways, I am loving this dress and company!  I think it would be great for bridesmaid dresses (under $100 with no alterations? Yes please), everyday dresses, tops, skirts and more!
I think it is definitely something worth checking out.  If you do here is a coupon code 'stylebudget'-  exclusively created for my readers to get 10% OFF when they shop at eShakti –

  1. The dress looks so great!! I did a review for an eshakti dress back in December and I loved it. I still wear the dress a lot! I'm super tempted to go on a shopping spree there :)

    I have a similar problem because I'm 5 7 with long legs!

  4. I love that dress! It is totally awesome that you can modify the dresses any way you like. It's hard to find a well-fitting dress that is classy and has a long enough skirt! :)

    I'm sharing a recipe for some delicious Strawberry Shortcakes that are grain, dairy and refined sugar free--as well as a post on Social Media and Self Control.

    Thank you for hosting! xx

  15. I was wondering where you got the adorable dress. I thought to myself, that had to break the budget. Glad to hear it didn't!

    1. I know, I actually saw a Kate Spade dress in a different color that was like this a while back, but I would not pay that price… guess patience paid off.

  16. Love that dress...and I love that it's custom! I'm tall, too, so I have the hardest time finding dresses that are long enough and also fit me on top. I'm going to have to check this out!
