Ruffles and Cobalt Blue: An eShakti Review

Do you have a dress that instantly reminds you of the salsa dancer emoji? That’s exactly what I thought of when I saw this dress. Cobalt blue has been one of my favorite colors of the season, and I knew I had to have it. It comes in several other colors, but sadly the cobalt is no longer in stock. I love the black or coral also though. The black would be a perfect year round dress. Recently, I wore this on one of our date nights. It’s the perfect dressy sundress. I added some floral print shoes and colorful tassels to play up the color. We sat out on a patio, then tried a new restaurant in town. It was my first time ordering from eShakti and it was a great experience. I love that you get to completely customize the dress, from the color down to the measurements of the sleeves. Because you get to customize it, it fit like a glove. It reminded me of a modern day Cinderella dress! The best thing about this dress is that it has pockets. They have tons and tons of style, too. The prices are very affordable as well.

Order/Customization Process:

  1. Measurements: pick a standard size or custom sizing. I was able to pick a standard size that perfectly had all of my measurements. I love that they also offer custom sizes, too.
  2. Height: I love that you get to put your height in to make sure the dress is the correct length. Since it’s a midi, having this option is important.
  3. Select neckline, sleeves, and length:  I picked sleeves that tie into a girly bow. I also picked the square neckline and midi length. I am really into midi dresses lately because they’re such a classy length.

The dress took a little less than 2 weeks to come, so keep that in mind. I fully believe it’s worth the wait because you know you’re getting a dress that will fit perfectly and is your own creation. Did I also mention that this dress has pockets? It’s one of those dresses that is so great, it makes you want to twirl.

Thank you to eShaki for gifting me this dress. All opinions are always my own.

      Me too! It’s such a great feature for petite ladies. I usually don’t have a problem with length, but my mom has to alter everything so I know a lot of ladies have trouble with that too.

    You definitely have a salsa vibe going on with this dress Courtney! I love the cobalt blue on you ! It is a really great dressy occasion dress and nice for date night. I agree black would work year round. The Length is great , and it is so nice that you can customize that! As you know I have checked them out , isn’t it fun creating YOUR dress? The floral wedges with the tassles are a fun addition to the dress. Hmm, does it have pockets?? Lol! It does make you want to twirl , go right ahead Dear! Thanks for sharing, Terri xo.
