A "made for you" dress

I was recently contacted by eShakti and given a product sample to review. eShakti.com is an online store that allows custom changes in the style of your garment (ie. sleeve, neckline, length). "Shakti means power in Sanskrit. eShakti therefore means the power of the Net. We believe the Internet empowers customers and helps companies be customer-centered."
After searching around the site I decided on the Banded waist cotton poplin dress. Then I was able to alter the dress to my taste! I took the length up a bit and sent in my measurements. Here is the finished product:

Dress: c/o eShakti, Blazer: Urban Outfitters, Earrings: Jewelmint, Bangle: c/oKristin Hassan, Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Tights: Target, Broach: Express, Ring: Judith Jack

eShakti ships to US and Canada and all custom orders go out within 3 business days! I've got to say, I'm a fan. I also love the prices as most products range from $49 to $90.
I wore my new red dress to my first of 5 Christmas parties. It was perfect! Just the right length for toting the kids around and bending to do presents. Truth be told I felt a little like I belonged on the Mad Men set this day ;)

**Starting tomorrow there will be 2 posts a day leading up to Christmas (1st at 7:00am and 2nd at 5:00pm). I am having a bit of a cookie week again this year and have lots of yummy treats to post.

You look stunning in red!
I keep browsing eShakti & am determined to place an order for an event in March - the custom sizing option is genius & so reasonable!

Love that red dress..very madmen...and YES it is so true that you need think about the fashion aspect but also the "can I bend over and grab the kiddies in this" as well. Ah, motherhood, lol.
I haven't decided what I am wearing for xmas eve or day...need to give it some thought as it is less than 4 days away...AHHHHHHHHH!!!!

You are looking beautiful as always...love the blazer too!

The dress looks fantastic! And what a gorgeous color. I was considering the banded waist poplin, as well, and had a quick question, esp since we can't see what your dress looks like without the jacket: is that the original neckline? Or did you custom-choose a wider scoop? Thanks! :-)

That color is beautiful on you! From the pictures...it looks velvety too.

I am always a little intimidated by the color of red because it attracts so much attention. However, I love how you muted it with the black blazer.
