I was recently contacted to do a review for an online clothing company called eShakti. What intrigued me about this website was the claim that they “customize” the clothes you order. Now, by customize, they mean an alteration in the neckline, sleeve length or length of the shirt.And many of the styles only offer one of those options. The clothes at eShakti aren’t customizable in the true sense (or at least what I would think of when I hear the word “customize”) but it’s still more than other companies offer. And the prices are comparable to what you would pay at other clothing websites or department stores. And a lot of their clothes are really pretty, and option to add sleeves, or make the shirt longer are just an added bonus. And they do have quick turnaround time. Their policy is to always have your size available and you will not pay a high premium to customize your clothing. The ordering process is simple and straightforward. They offer a no hassle return policy and that orders are shipped within 5 business days. It’s true–I received my shirt fast!
When choosing which shirt I wanted for my review, I wanted to choose something that wasn’t too similar to what I already have, but still looked like “me.” So I chose the shirt in the picture above. Green is a not a color I gravitate toward, and I would have preferred the shirt in blue or red, but unfortunately, different color is not a customizing option.
I decided to get it anyway, after asking my husband’s opinion. I think he was just happy I was getting something not blue! And you know what? I actually got a few compliments at church. They were probably happy to see me in something “bright” too! I really like the beading here:
The only problem is the neckline was a little too low for my taste. Of course, it’s hard for me to find nice shirts with appropriate necklines (for me). We fixed this with a thick piece of scalloped lace. It fits in perfectly and you would never know it wasn’t really part of the shirt. And here is a picture of me wearing the shirt (post alteration).
I really like the shirt, even if it did make me step out of my box a little. 🙂 I tried to find the shirt again on the website but I can’t find it anymore. Maybe they ran out. Please check out the eShakti website and let me know if you see anything you like. You can also like them on facebook and follow them on Pinterest.
