Pink, White, And Blue: My eShakti Review

Cynthia:  Marcy! eShakti asked me to review one of their skirts for our blog. Isn’t that awesome?

Marcy (grumpily):  Hmpf. Could be dangerous.

Cynthia (surprised):  What? Why?

Marcy:  What if you don’t like it? What if it doesn’t fit? What if it isn’t your style?

Cynthia:  No chance. This is eShakti we’re talking about. The clothes are custom made to your specific measurements, height, and style. You get to pick the length and if you want pockets or not. Dresses even come with sleeve options.

I got the Color Block Stripe Poplin Skirt in Navy and Pink. It’s high waisted and a midi-length. I also think this would look fabulous at a knee-length or even above the knee.

Marcy:  You sound like an ad.

Cynthia:  Well, it is kind of. But you know, if I didn’t like my skirt I would have sent it back and not reviewed it. But I love it. It fits perfectly. And the pink on blue makes me smile.Marcy:  You sound like an ad.

Marcy:  Hmpf. So you’re selling out for free stuff now.

Cynthia:  Marcy. Calm down. You know I turned down the teeth whitening company, the tacky jewelry company, and the strange app company.

Marcy:  Hmpf.

Cynthia:  Oh and the hair loss company.

Marcy:  Hmpf. Probably should’ve taken the hair loss company up on their offer.

Cynthia (alarmed and patting her head):  Really?

Marcy:  Hmpf.

Cynthia:  I must applaud eShakti for providing affordable custom clothing for women of all sizes. They cater to sizes 0-36W. I mean, who does that? In their own words –

“At eShakti we never want to tell a woman her size is not available. We believe that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their best.”

I think that’s really nice.

Marcy:  So it’s all flowers and sunshine. Hmpf.

Cynthia:  Marcy. No need to be cynical. You’re just jealous because Friskies hasn’t approached you to be in their ads.

Marcy:  Hmpf. It’s not fair that you get a skirt and I get nothing. I say nice things about Friskies all the time.

Cynthia:  If I could make one suggestion to eShakti it would be to please not ship with DHL. In my area, they are terrible and I have had packages either not arrive or sit on the driver’s truck for a week. My skirt did arrive promptly with no mishaps, but it made me nervous nonetheless.

Marcy:  Hmpf.

Cynthia:  Here. This will make you happy, Marcy. eShakti is offering everyone a discount code of 10% off their entire purchase and the code is… “marcies”!

Marcy purrs.

Cynthia: The 10% discount code “marcies” is good through July 30th, 2014. Details are below. So what do you think, Marcy? Pretty cool, hunh?!

Marcy:  Yeah. So why don’t you take your cute skirt out for a date at the grocery store. I need more Friskies. It’s almost dinnertime.

    That skirt looks so cute on you! I absolutely love it. It is definitely a "Cynthia Skirt" with the beautiful feminine silhouette and the flirty detail. And that top you paired with it is perfect. You look gorgeous! Stunning! Happy!

    Tell Marcy Friskies will come around. I strongly believe it. : )

      Thank you, Jenni! You know, I almost didn't pick that skirt because it was such a "me" skirt. I figured I should branch out. I have to say I am glad I didn't. Sometimes you just know what you like. A benefit of ageing I think!

    Wow! Went to the website inspired by the cute skirt and 10% discount and found such lovely things. I like the fact that you can add sleeves since I need to hide my tattoos for formal occasions.
    Thanks, Cynthia and Marcy.

      Oh I bet your tattoos are fabulous. Let me know if you purchase something. I'd love to hear the details!

      Thank you, Merrie! They were just wonderful to work with!
      I wish those bow tie shoes were comfortable. I have been having a bit of bad luck with shoes lately. Or maybe the problem is with my feet!

    I love this skirt! You look awesome. That website does have some really cute stuff.

      Thank you! A lot of it reminds me of Anthropologie stuff.

    Ooooh yay! I have something on the way from eShakti too, and the more I read reviews of their products, the more excited I become! I love that they offer sizes 0-36. That's amazing! I am all for full-range collections! This skirt is so darling and so totally you. I love that many of their products have vintage flair and seem to be of super high quality fabrics. I wouldn't have paid this skirt any attention on the site, but I love it on you and wonder if I might love it on me, too. I'm a sucker for full skirts (and pink, of course), so this dress is a win-win! Glad you had a great experience with eShakti and got to add a fun new piece to your wardrobe! It's so versatile, I can't wait to see how else you style it!

      Awesome! I can't wait to see what you picked out! I had such a great experience with them. I can't tell you how thrilling it was to have something that fit me perfectly right out of the bag. I bet you will have the same thrill!
      By the way, you would look fantastic in this skirt!

    That is a really cute skirt and you look like the perfect model for it. I love your advertisement with Marcy as well!
