Bird's Eye View

Recently, I was contacted to review a product from!
What's cool about this website is that they specialize in custom clothing. You can put in your measurements, and each item is cut special for you! You can also change details about the clothes, like the neckline or skirt length. Pretty cool, right?
As an amateur seamstress, I thought this was a pretty great idea. Having clothes that fit me is one of the reasons I like making my own. So I took advantage of the custom sizing option eShakti offers.
However, when it arrived, I was pretty disappointed to find that my dress was way too big for me up top. it's beautiful, but I wanted it to custom fit me! So I took it in some. The neckline is a little off-shoulder, which makes it a little weird for me to wear, since my shoulders are tiny.
My favorite thing about this dress is the full circle skirt. It makes me feel like a 50s housewife, except in a good way.
Here are some of my other favorites.

So, I decided to wear this dress two ways.
The first was kinda elegant, and I really think this dress can stand on it's own. But since I like to quirk things up, I wore it in a more casual way, too.

    1. Haha I think I might be getting a little addicted to making them!

  2. I totally just got my free dress from Eshakti too and I was SO close to getting this one! It looks lovely on you, that sucks about the fit though. At least you can't tell! I think I'm going to steal your idea and do a dress up/dress down post with my dress :)

  3. I totally got the exact same dress ^_^ Sucks about the fit, hopefully mine doesn't do that! I'm excited to try it out! They just put up the dress in red though and it's SO cute in red!

    I think they must have hit up all the flock together girls, right?
