I received the below dress in exchange for my honest review.
I must say, I was very excited when eShakti contacted me to see if I'd be interested in a review. At the time I was nine months pregnant and very much in the mood to look at pretty non-maternity clothes!
I chose the Paris Dress.
The eShakti experience is a pleasant one. I really like how they help you customize and make sure the dress really fits! They have measurements clearly listed for the size on the same page as the dress. They also ask for your height. Additionally, it's easy to customize the sleeves and the dress length! (I love that they offer the length option. As someone on the *ahem* shorter side it's nice to be able to make sure the hem will hit on a flattering part of the leg.)
I love the full and flowing skirt! The v-neckline is flattering, and so pretty with the feminine ruffles. The side pockets are handy, and they're deep enough to actually be useful. (If you aren't a pocket person, that's alright, because there is a free option to remove the pockets!) The dress is machine wash and dry -- which is always a plus in my book!
Officially the color is "yellow", but in my humble opinion is has a bit too much green to call it a true yellow. The picture of the dress online is much more of a yellow color than the dress that I received. If you have kids (or just like to color sometimes) pull out the box of crayons and the color is pretty close to "Green Yellow".
The dress comes with a sash, which is a great length to tie in either a square know or a bow; however, there are no belt loops of any kind on the dress. Personally, I like that the option is there to wear the dress sans sash, but when I want to have the sash on I'm afraid it will shift a bit.
Honesty time. You probably noticed that while most of what I say here is positive, I'm not actually wearing the dress in any of these pictures. I'm a month postpartum with my son and (even though I'm below my pre-pregnancy weight) my body isn't quite ready to do this dress justice. Once it is I will be sure to share some pictures!
