Blue and Black

Dress- c/o eShakti
Tights- Winners
Shoes- Spring

When I was contacted by eShakti to see if I was interested in doing a review of one of their products I immediately began browsing through their large selection of dresses.  eShakti is an online clothing store that allows you to have most garments customized.  I thought this would be a great company for me to team up with because I sew a lot of my own customized clothes....and this way those of you who don't sew can also have customized clothing!
This dress I chose did not originally come with long sleeves, but I chose to have them added because I like the idea of long (sleek) sleeves in the winter time.
I was very impressed with the quality of this dress, the seam details were much better than I expected, and the dress came fully lined.  The one thing that I was disappointed in was my sleeves.  It seemed like there was no thought put into the shape of the sleeve, so what I ended up with was a very wide rectangle sleeve.  I ended up taking in the sleeve over 3 inches around the wrist, and tapering up towards the armpit.
I emailed eshakti to address this issue, and suggested that they add a wrist/hand measurement when adding long sleeves. I've been told that they are working on a solution to that problem.
