eShakti Dress Review

eShakti has a wide variety of customizible fashion.

Most, if not all {I didn't click into EVERY item they offer} comes with options to change parts of the style from neckline, sleeve type, and length- HELLO Modest ladies! You can even input all your measurements to get the perfect fit.

So when I was offered to review an item in exchange for an honest review, I couldn't turn it down. Not only for my closet, but for YOU. We HAD to know if this was a For Real thing!

After scouring the options I was given, I ask for my hubs help in narrowing down my favs. Here's what he picked:

I hope he remembered I wasn't oober classy when he saw this... Even when I try, I'm just super silly.

I chose a high neckline; I typically wear tshirts because it's difficult for me to find shirts that I'm comfortable in due to coverage. I went with the sleeveless option so I could wear it year-round but they are a bit big. I'm not used to thinking through the length of dresses on myself because I don't really like how dresses fit my "square" body type so I went with right above the knee...maybe I'll look taller. LOL I even got to add POCKETS! Who doesn't want pockets on everything!?

After putting in my order, it took a bit to get the dress in the mail but it was totally worth the wait for a customized item. The packaging was great and the fit was just as ordered. The material is high quality.

Things I've learned over the different seasons of wearing this dress since April:

  1. I don't know what I look good in; I usually just buy what's on sale, so it was hard to choose the right option(s). While the high neck is nice, it's almost too tight. I'm also not a pro at measuring myself so I think I may have erred a little too small across the bust/back.
  2. I think I should have forced myself to choose rather than letting my hubs, I might have ended up with one I loved more. While I like the denim, jeans go with everything right?! I feel like this dress gives off a baby doll vibe.
  3. The flare effect makes me feel like I'm wearing a maternity dress but works well to hide my "leftovers" and still looks fun by itself or with a cardigan, jacket, or scarf. Dressing it up or down is very easy.
  4. This dress is very versatile. Winter: tights, jacket, scarf, and tall boots, Spring: hat and rain boots, Summer: plain with flip flops or tennis shoes, and Fall: cardigan, knit leggings, and ankle boots.

overalll, I was pleased with my customized dress dress. I would totally recommend this s site to  a friend, especially those who have a hard time finding clothing to fit their uniquely created body type.

It is a bit pricey for my cheap self but it doesn't be seem overpriced compared to most clothing stores.

I also think this could be a fun option for things like bridesmaid dresses. Coordinating but customized, giving each friend a chance to look and feel awesome. Plus, you could choose something that they could wear again we the event.

eShakti also just emailed me to share that you can mix and match FABRICS now! Like the lrint but  the style? Like the make but not so much the type of fabric. More customization options- winning!

What would you choose if given permission to customize!? CAN you think of other benefits?

The Neti Pot Experience

A while back I told you I wanted readers here at as Jules is going to know I'm normal. Well, at least...not perfect, probably far from 'normal'. I would try to be a real as possible with you without narking out my family's quirks who haven't signed up for that. goes today's realness.

The Neti Pot Experience REALness on

I have always had problems with allergies. When I was little I had terrible reactions to poison ivy. I would often wake up with eyes matted closed from seasonal allergies. This did not go away as I got older. I have had a Least one sinus infection a year since my first pregnancy almost 5 years ago. About a week I went back to the doctor for my yearly, "Sorry, no I haven't been taking my daily allergy meds. No I didn't get more nasal spray after the sample one you gave me ran out. Yep, I'm pretty sure I have another sinus infection." visit and added to that a, "those are called What? Tonsil stones...likely caused by my allergies/drainage?" conversation.

Last night, after the 8 billionth person told me about a product that helps clear your sinuses as well as helps those who suffer from seasonal allergies, I decided to try it. I don't like my head being constantly clogged. Feeling like I'm in a fog. Therefore the Neti Pot made into my home via Walgreen's. Here is a video of the loveliness in case you want a for real example of how this thing works the very first time you use it.


There is a Lot of realness in this video...not for the week stomach ;o)

Apparently my goal in life is to make other feel better about themselves! Feel free to think, "At least I'm not a weird as that girl..." Your welcome for today ego boaster!

No, I was not paid to do this nastiness to my face by Neti Pot. Unless you know someone who wants to pay me for that?!? And yes, I think I will start using this more regularly to see if it really does help in the long run.

The Neti Experience!
