If you know how much I adore eShakti then you know that I order custom sized dresses from them often. eShakti reached out to me and allowed me to select one dress to share in a blog post to show all of you just how lovely their dresses are.
I selected a dress called Fantasy Bird Dress because it just made me feel like summer was right around the corner. I fell in love with the bright vibrant colors, the birds of paradise flowers, and the birds in the print.
I decided to model my Fantasy Bird Dress at a local walking trail because this is were I go when the leaves start to come out and the flowers begin to blossom. I love nature, and I long for spring and summer to arrive so that I can enjoy walking this trail and getting some much needed exercise. In the mean time, wearing a dress from eShakti from their Tropical Punch selections make me happy.

I had my dress customized to have a sweetheart neckline, above the knee length, and cap sleeves. This is where the magic of eShakti comes in ladies. If you love the idea of the dress but the sleeve length, neckline, or dress length are not for you, you can change it. You have more options than others with some dresses, and some dresses may not allow you to change specific things, but I rarely find a dress that I can’t make work for me.
Also all eShakti dresses have pockets! I know that I love pockets in my dresses and most ladies do, but if for some reason you do not want the pockets there is an easy option to have your dress made without them.
Also when you have your dress customized to your measurements, your dress with fit perfectly. You can also opt for regular sizing from 0 to 36W but the fee to have your dress made to order is only seven dollars and fifty cents so I see no reason not to go for it and have your dress made just for you.
I have rather large arms, so when you have your dress customized eShakti takes every measurement you can imagine, even your bicep width which means your sleeves won’t be too snug. I don’t know how many times I could not wear a dress or top due to the sleeves fitting too tight but with eShakti everything is perfect and made just for you!
The colors in the Fantasy Bird dress really pop and are so much fun. Styling is simple with a few understated accessories. Because it can still be cool this time of the year I opted to bring with me and wear part of the time a pretty cover up from Nick and Mo.
Below you can see in the upper left photo the sweetheart neckline, one of my favorite necklines.
I accessorized with a bird necklace in a complimentary yellow and gold, a neutral colored purse, pale yellow wedge sandals with a gold accents. Keeping the accessories fun but not too bold lets the dress take center stage and keeps the overall look from becoming too busy but if you want to go all out there are many statement necklaces that would look stunning with this dress. You could also wear flat natural colored sandals or go bold with orange wedges. I love the dress too much to overdo the accessories however. I am sure after wearing it a few more times I will feel more adventurous though. As for my earrings, I found this lovely floral pair hiding in my jewelry box. They compliment the colors in the dress and necklace and are bold but not too bold. They even have a touch of pink which is also a color found in the dress.
It may be a good thing that it is not too green out yet or I may have ended up blending in as this dress is the most lovely summer camouflage! It sort of reminds me of a Monet painting with the way it all blends beautifully into a fantasy world of flowers, grassy knolls, birds, and a feel of water smoothly running. It truly is a dress that can make you feel happy wearing it, and the fabric feels wonderful for the season. It is not too heavy and hot, but also not too thin either.
