I’ve really been wanting an orange dress this spring, which is a little out of character for me. But it’s hard to resist all these shades of tangerine and coral and peach; there’s just something so fabulous about them. This poplin dress from eShakti is exactly what I’ve been dreaming of.
eShakti’s dresses are a perfect balance of classic, modest shapes and quirky, offbeat details. These are stand-out pieces that you really could wear over and over. I love the detailing on this dress — the gathered bodice and the pleated waistband and the pockets. Dresses with pockets make me swoon. I also love that it’s a machine-washable cotton poplin, which means that it’s a dress I can really wear and wear and wear. And of course, the color is amazing. That bright coral made me so happy, all day long. Perfect.
eShakti also lets you customize your dress, so you get the perfect piece every time. You can add a sleeve, alter the neckline, or change the hem length, for an extra $7 — which is so much less than a tailor would charge to do the same work. Brilliant. I did a little customizing of my own on this dress; the hemline was longer than I liked, so I took it up about three inches, with some iron-on hem tape. Go me.
For a limited time, eShakti is offering $20 off your first order, which is a fantastic deal. My dress retails for $59.95, which is already a steal — subtract $20 and it’s practically free. I have my eye on a cute sundress embroidered with bicycles — how fun would that be for summer? So fun.
