Feeling Pretty in eShakti

March 9, 2011

I heard about eShakti late last year and decided to order a piece after a blogger posted a discount code for them. I had been saving this top to wear to the ballet with my mom, but after I saw that eShakti had sent me (and everyone else who has purchased from them) a discount code to share with people, I decided to break it out early for a review and give you all the details on the discount.

This top is eShakti’s vintage blouse (no longer online), and it has details that normally are not seen in plus-size clothing. It has beautiful scallop details and a three-button enclosure in the front. I paired it with a straight-leg trouser from Avenue that I rolled up. The trousers looks a little …. ehhh, but I hope to get it professionally cuffed.

Obviously, the shirt needs a bit of ironing, but that’s my own fault from having it folded up versus hanging in my closet. You can see in the picture the pleated middle section, and the puff/billowy sleeves. I’m considering putting elastic in the wrist so I can control where it goes a little better.

I absolutely love the back with the pleated detail. I’m not used to having clothes that have such intricate details. Mostly because plus-size retailers know that we are all shaped differently. eShakti takes care of that because they allow you to do customizations for an extra $7.50, which I did with this top.

It felt like the perfect time to put on this ring I got from Evan’s late last year. I love the brown/orange/tan colors in the stone, which went perfectly with the color of the top. Originally I thought the top would be more ivory, and to be honest, it took me a little bit to like this color, but I think it really looks luxurious, which makes it the perfect choice to go to a play, ballet, or other nice event that you want to be comfortable at.

I’ve been wearing my hair curly for most days this past week, because I’ve been a lazy bones and didn’t want to straighten my hair. Naturally my hair has some curl, but also has lots of straight parts. I decided to go back over it with a “curling wand” (it has no clasp like a traditional curling iron) to make the curls tighter.

 

I went from this…

To this…

It was fun to polish my curls, and the curling wand makes it a little funkier than a typical curling iron.

Overall, I really loved putting this outfit together, and can’t wait for the actual event to wear it out.

Which brings me to the point of this post. eShakti sent me and many others a discount code to share with anyone we know. It gets you $20 off your first purchase with eShakti (and sends me a $10 credit for every referral!). I’ve been very impressed with eShakti so far. They are constantly sending you discounts after your first purchase, and now they are really targeting “word-of-mouth” marketing. I think it’s an amazing deal for first time shoppers and great for the people they sent the discount to as well.

So, if you are interested in the discount the code is : RebeccaAgosta88

Some of your friends or family that have bought from eShakti may also have a code, so if you want to give them the $10 credit, make sure you ask them for their special code! πŸ™‚

Happy shopping!

      Thank you so much!! This is probably one of the outfits I’ve been most happy with too. I’m happy to have found pants like that and eShakti really pulled through πŸ™‚

    You look stunning! Your hair looks really pretty in curls.

    The top is just fabulous, I love the color and detail, great choice! I love the sleeves, I’m a sucker for floaty sleeves, they’re feminine and chic.

    That’s what I love the most about eShakti, the customization option, because the “one size fits all” thing, doesn’t always work out.

    WOW!!!! Rebecca that blouse is stunning on you. YES I love good scallop edges when I see them on anything and it looks delicate and feminine on the blouse! I would love to order from eShakti but again they must hate asia cos they don’t ship here.

      Thanks, Dee :)! That’s too bad about shipping. Shipping costs are just ridiculous and I’m sure they’re going to go up :-/

    I love eshakti stuff but alas they don’t ship to UK! Love the curly hair!!

      Ah, that’s too bad. I wish we all had access to these companies, especially since there are so few we can shop at! Thanks for the compliment πŸ™‚

    So many things to comment on! First the top is just right, the color, the cut, the details, everything. I have been wanting to order from eshakti for awhile, but I have been nervous because I heard that customizing your order can go wonky, and I definatley would need it to be customized. Most of the items I am interested in have the darts around the bustline, and I have large bust. Seeing how well this came out for you is giving me the push to order, after I save some pennies.

    Your hair is so cute curled. Can you put a link to the hair curler that you use?

    One last thing, I love you without makeup. You look very cute fresh faced! Not that with makup you look bad, but I wish I could go au natural still..getting older makes me more self conscious.

      I found the link in your post for the curling wand….DOH!

      • March 13, 2011 8:25 pm

        Thanks, Georgia!! Sometimes I don’t look so great fresh faced, but I’ve been using a new skin product and it works well! Good luck if you do order something. They’ve made a great impression on me so far!
