I received gift certificates from eShakti to help purchase three of the four spring dresses featured in this post. The fourth dress I purchased myself.
Spring Dresses from eShakti
I cannot be the only one who is anxiously awaiting warmer weather and the disappearance of all of the snow. To that end I had spent some happy time looking at the beautiful spring dresses on eshakti.com. I have written about the new eShaktiFX option on some designs where you can see your custom edits as you make them before you order your item. It is a lot of fun to play with the various options and see how they will look before you buy.
That is exactly what I did with this beautiful cotton knit dress. The original design had cap sleeves but I changed them to long as I am always cold.
The dress fits like a dream is as with everything I have gotten from eShakti is very well made. I put it on and immediately felt special. It’s been a while since a dress has done that for me.
Ready for Special Occasions
I am traveling East this summer to visit my family and to see my niece graduate from High School. I knew I would need a dress or two for special occasions and this floral print maxi dress caught my eye immediately. I made no changes to the design of this one as I loved it as is.
The necklace is from a very talented friend, Crystal from Carly’s Haven.
It is so comfortable to wear and like all eShakti designs, it has pockets. I can see me wearing it for three seasons here in Montana; on the cooler evenings I will just wear my cowboy boots and add one of my beautiful shawls from Cricket’s Creations. I am lucky enough to have two of her works of art and they are magic.
All the Blues
I did learn one thing while shopping at eShakti – I have a thing for blue dresses! Three out of the four that I purchased are that color. I didn’t even realize it until I had them all in front of me. I guess I like blue. This quirky elephant print dress was my first purchase. It is listed on the site as a maxi dress but I changed it to a midi. I also lengthened the sleeves from the original design. You see how much fun it can be to make changes?
This dress is so much fun. The sleeve is just so special and the two prints are fun together. I put on my navy blue and gold flats and I’m ready for night out to dinner or a casual party. The necklace is one I’ve had for more years than I can count; it was a gift from my eldest brother.
My final dress is more of a summer dress than a spring dress but that’s OK. I purchased this from the sale section and it seems that it is no longer available. What I love about it is that I can add a shawl or jacket and I will be set for cooler nights.
It is going to be perfect for going home to the shore this June. That is my other shawl from Cricket’s Creations.
Ordering Spring Dresses and More from eShakti
eShakti doesn’t keep an inventory. When you place your order they start making your dress. You can tell that a lot of care is taken with each item. As I have noted in other posts there are darts and gussets and things you just don’t see on most mid range dresses these days.
If you choose to make changes to the design of the dress/shirt/pants/skirt it only costs $9.95. You can also send in your exact measurements and the item you pick will be made to them. That is something.
I am very thrilled with my four new dresses and if I haven’t said it enough – they all have pockets! You can have the pockets taken out if you want but I just don’t even understand why that is an option. Who doesn’t want pockets?
