Nautical by Nature

nautical stripes

eShakti asked me to do a product review a few weeks ago and having seen their cute offerings all over the blogosphere, I jumped on the opportunity. I was able to pick out my own dress and of course I had to go nautical - and red, white and blue is no-fail, right?

When ordering from eShakti, you have the option of either selecting from standard numerical sizing or customizing for only $7.50. I selected standard sizing but chose customized styling, so I was able to pick the neckline, sleeve-type and length that worked best for my figure and height. After placing my order, I received my dress within two weeks via DHL.

As for fit? I selected my size based off their listed standard sizing measurements instead of just picking my normal numerical size and I'm glad I did - these guys are spot-on with measurements. I think my normal numerical size would have been too small. I also appreciate that eShakti adjusted the length for my height too - no going to the tailor with this dress.

I am pretty impressed with eShakti. They've got loads of cute styles (I think Anthropologie and ModCloth fans would be impressed) to pick from, plus the prices are pretty darn reasonable considering you can customize your best fit for this much => <= more money.

You can use code RTSES for 10% off your next order, good through June 23! Or if you sign up to their site, you can get a $25 credit!

For those in the States, have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! May you have some fab fun with your friends and fam on this unofficial start of summer holiday, and take a moment to pay respect to the sacrifices made by our military men and women and their families.

  2. I love them too! They used to have a more limited range of styles but now they are so versatile and cover all the trends. This looks lovely on you!

    1. True - I remember checking them out on the early-set and they didn't had too much variety but they've got a ton of choices now!

  3. Saw the sneak peek on Instagram yesterday and couldn't wait for the grand reveal. Uh-mazing! I like the edits you did on the basic dress and the colors are perfect. You really must have Memorial Day on the brain, eh? Hrm...maybe I can inveigle my hubby to buy an eShakti dress for me for my birthday next week. ;p

    1. Go by the measurements listed and no really by the numerical sizing, imo.

  8. I am crazy about this beautiful striped dress. The colors are nautical, and I would expect that of you, but I absolutely love the placement stripes. I think it was great for you to choose the option where they can make the address to your measurements, that is just brilliant. I also love the striped bag. Thank you for mentioning the holiday it is meaningful one. Kisses,Elle

  9. Gorgeous dress! It's perfect for Summer. Another blogger I visit wore one of their newest designs with an anchor. So cute. eShakti creates the cutest dresses.

  10. Oh - I love love love this dress! The colors are fantastic and it fits you to a T. And - you paired it with our Brief Meeting Blazer which I still love and wear all the time.
    I have often wondered about eShakti. They have such cute stuff. So the quality is good. Hmmmm... I will have to scope them out again.
    Thanks for the review, Lisa!

    1. The Brief Meeting blazer is one of my faves from Anthro as well. It's got more personality than the standard navy blazer but it's appropriate enough for biz dressing.

  12. I think this dress is adorable on you, and of course I love anything nautical. I've had a couple dresses from them, and both times they didn't end up fitting correctly. Maybe I just don't know how to measure myself properly?

    1. That's partly why I went with their listed standard sizing and didn't try to input my own measurements - I figured I had a pretty good chance of messing something up and ending up with something unwearable!

  13. What a great dress and indeed it looks as if it is made for you. Very very very beautiful. Also cute with the jacket. Nice combination with that clutch.

  14. Love your outfit! You reminds me to use my stripe blazer...

  15. You usually do so much with pattern mixing and layering on statement jewelry, and this is such a pretty, minimalist look that feels a bit different from what you usually wear. Still just as chic as always, though! The nautical colorblocking isn't a trend I've seen a lot of, so it feels very fresh and modern. Great to read another positive review from eShakti, too! It's tempting me to head over there... :-)

  16. Great dress - I love how you can take a garment and just give it your own personal spin.
    In this case, the accessories and the bag - you've got style girl.
