Juuuuuuust about a month ago, we got the one of the coolest e-mail we've ever gotten. The lovely Jane of eShakti messaged us, inviting us (as they do with other bloggers) to review a product of theirs in exchange for telling all our friends about it. What followed was an early-morning flurry of text messages, in which we discussed the pros and cons of just about every item of clothing available on eShakti.com to blogger reviewers.
And there's good news for you -- they're offering our readers 10% off until November 6th. Just enter 'calamitycodance' as a promotional code when you check out.
eShakti has a large selection of dresses, skirts, tops, pants, blah blah blah, some of which are available to be reviewed. While this was exciting and the possibilities seemed endless, we agreed we wanted something that could cater to both of our personal styles. This required some deliberation, not only because we have our own distinct styles, but also because we are two different shapes. Somewhat fortuitously, we both discovered this shirt - excuse me, I mean "tile print chiffon blouse" - to be something that would work for both our bodies, as well as our styles.
The COOLEST thing about eShakti is that you can custom order any and every item on their site. Not only can a top be tailored to your specific measurements, but you can change the sleeves, the neckline, or how low it falls on your hips. You can change the length of a dress or whether certain ornamentation is included or not. This part of the site is LITERALLY a dream come true. However, because we were trying to dress two different bodies, and also the shirt we agreed on seemed best as it was offered, we did not take advantage of this extremely cool detail.
We ordered on Day 1. Ten days later, we got an e-mail confirming shipment. Two days later, the box arrived. Not too shabby, all things considered!
So, you wanna know what we really think?
