the red dress {eshakti review}

//dress: c/o eshakti (similar) / heels, cardigan: thrifted//

I always love red dresses, but red is a color that I'm not usually drawn to or inclined to wear, possibly because it's more bright than the colors I usually wear, or maybe it's just not the greatest with my cool, pale skin tone. However, when Eshakti offered me the opportunity to review one of their dresses, and I saw this gorgeous, retro sundress, I thought I would go for it. I really love it--it has pockets (always a plus!), it's figure-flattering, it can be dressed up or down, and the style is so fun. Eshakti always has such beautiful dresses, and I love that they can be customized to fit each person's own style and measurements. The one issue that I've had with the two dresses that I have from Eshakti, however, is with the straps being ever so slightly too big on my shoulders. This dress is also a bit longer than I usually like, since it's at that awkward length where I almost have to wear heels to avoid making my legs look stumpy. Other than that, though, I'm pleased with the dress and its quality. With this dress, when I first tried it on, probably because I wasn't being careful, I ripped part of the seam along the zipper. It was a small rip, though, and an easy fix.

I highly recommend Eshakti—they have such a great selection of dresses, skirts, and tops in gorgeous styles and colors! If you haven't already, be sure and check them out on their website and on their
