Dress: c/o eShakti // Forever21 Leopard Belt // BCBG Ankle Strap Flats
Today we're going to be talking about "the fit"
One of the first cardinal rules of fashion is the fit of the clothing. Finding that perfect little black dress can be a different task despite the fact that every store/line has their version of the LBD. No matter the price tag if you can find a dress that fits your body perfectly in every way shape and form then you've got a winner. The only problem, it's almost impossible to find a mass produced dress that can perfectly fit every body type.
The answer, eShakti
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be contacted by eShakti.com an online boutique that customizes clothing to fit your body type! The site has lots of basics in all colors and once you've selected a style you get to change the length, neckline, sleeve type, as well as pick the size closest to your measurements. I picked the Simply Black Poplin Dress and changed the length because I'm on the shorter side and tend to like dresses that elongate the leg area. I am also really picky with necklines and was excited I was able to select one I liked.
When I received this dress I could not have been more thrilled! Not only did it arrive just in time for an event I was having but the dress fit my body to a T. It's perfectly fitted in the bust and waist area and it has the perfect little bounce in the skirt. The material is not extremely thick cotton it's rather light and easily folded up and packed for any traveling. This is definitely something I can dress up (above) and dress down with some boots!
