Fall with Eshakti Part 1
We have sung the praises of eShakti in previous posts seen here and here and we will continue to do so! We love when manufacturers and retailers provide fashionable options for women of all sizes – now that’s fashion democracy at its best! Founded back in 1999 by B.G. Krishnan, eShakti strives to offer fun fashion forward styles which can all be customized for your body at an affordable price. Now that’s a match made in fashion heaven!
When it comes to fashion for all and every fit, Eshakti is here, and I couldn’t be happier to collaborate again with them. This time around I chose this simple mustard fit and flare, knee length dress.
I chose to get my dress customized so I can get the waist adjusted to my body, and to get the fit and flare look I was going for.
I don’t know how many times I can stress the fact that I tend to gravitate towards pieces of clothing that I can wear in so many different ways. This dress is so versatile I can wear it in the winter with a pair of over the knee boots, and can wear it in spring and summer with sandals.
Last but not least, for this look I paired my dress with my printed blue and beige coat that I scored at Old Navy, on sale a few months ago. I added a fur collar just because everything looks better with fur, and I added my leopard print stilettos.
As I mentioned before this dress is available in ALL sizes so tall babes it can be yours too. Here is a coat option in tall for you though which just so happens to be from eShakti as well – Coat
Fashion democracy at its best indeed. When you see how seamlessly eShakti seems to navigate the fashion-for-all world, I really have to wonder if most retailers will eventually follow suit. I for one sure hope so!
In order to ensure perfect fit, I entered my measurements and once again, my dress fit me to a tee. The real bonus Tall Chicas is that, if the picture shows the dress being knee length, and you want it to be knee length, then it will BE knee length. What a novel idea lol.
The dress comes with a belt that matches its beautiful geometric print, but I swapped it for a belt that was in my closet (the grays ended up going quite well!) just to have that contrast to further accentuate my waist. To keep the chills at bay, I added this camel colored maxi jacket which takes the look from nice to boss in 2.5!
The neckline, sleeve and length of the dress can all be modified. How will you rock it?
Plus size girls, you can get that very same dress in your very own size! If you want to pair it with a jacket as I did, check out the one worn by our very own Gail here.
This look is my ode to military chic. When I spied this gorgeous army green dress on the eShakti site – it was love at first sight! The first thing that popped into my head was that En Vogue remake of “He’s the boogie woogie hip hop boy of Company B!” LOL Man, I was ready to fox trot!
The dress is made of a comfy breathable cotton material that has a hint of stretch. I love the faux knot detail at the neck too. Once again, eShakti has those wonderful pockets in this dress design that I just love.
Next came this camel coloured coat, in petite plus, with gold button -again giving off that military air!
I completed my look with patterned pumps and gold embossed purse – now that’s a salute to style…see what I did just there lol
Now as you ladies remember, this dress is totally customizable so, my tall glamazons, you can get this look in a size you!!! But, here is a coat option in tall – Coat
When perusing through the pages of Elle Canada magazine I stumbled across an article featuring some of the hot trends seen on the runway for fall. One of those hot trends lit a fire in my blood and I was determined to recreate it with my own little twist. The trend was wearing pink and yellow together.
This gorgeous dress from eShakti, which of course me being me, I turned into a skirt is dupioni silk with a high low detail and beautiful front pleat. I’ve been noticing a lot of pink creeping into my wardrobe of late, but when it comes in the form of a beautiful dress like this, who can resist. Image
What I love about this dress is that I could so easily where it to a wedding or special event, then to expand the “usefulness” of this piece for us ladies on a budget, you can style it with a top or jacket to wear it dinner, brunch or for drinks with the crew.
I rocked it with this ¾ sleeve shirt in a vibrant yellow and decided to accentuate my waist with a wide brown belt. Since I love adding a little print whenever I can, I threw on my leopard print pumps, and for a little extra dash of colour (because I was feeling like being bold) I rocked this wine-red clutch to hold my bits and bobs.
And just like that, I transformed this dress from “occasion” wear to everyday gear!
For my curvy ladies this dress comes in just your size since eShakti clothing can be customized to your specific measurements! // Top //
Tah tah for now,
