Clothes Customized for You {eShakti}

IMG_2567

If you are like most women, shopping for clothes can be frustrating at times. And when you do find something you like– it often is either too long, too short, too wide, or worst yet that fab piece you come across doesn’t even come in your size at all. How does shopping for clothes with the freedom to customize it to create the perfect fit for YOU sound? Well, I recently found out this is possible thanks to eShakti whose motto is, “We design. You customize.”

I recently had the opportunity to work with eShakti to see what this whole customization to your fit thing works. I was given complete freedom in choosing one free piece from their collection to see for myself how it all works. The hardest thing for me was choosing a piece, as they have many amazing clothes. I finally chose this short black trench coat because this is a classic piece everyone needs in their closet. As a petite, I am pretty limited in the places that carry jackets in petite sizes. And usually they only carry the long trench coats anyways. This eShakti black trench coat came out perfectly, it fits me just right. Something that bothers me, even about “petite” trench coats it that the belt always seems too long. With the eShakti trench coat, I didn’t have this problem…the belt was the right size for me.

When customizing a piece, you are given the option on choosing a standard size or custom size. Within the custom size option, you then specify your measurements (shoulder, waist, hip, upper arm, etc.). With both standard size & custom size, you provide your height and are given a custom styling option (optional). Custom styling option for the trench coat was if I wanted it to be hip length or as shown in the photo. For other pieces it could be things like, what length do you want the dress to be for example–you like the design but you see yourself wearing it as a mini or mid-calf length, that kind of thing. So not only are you customizing it by your measurements but also by style. I thought this was a great option because there are times I see clothes I like but think, “oh, this would like great if only it was quarter-sleeves, or if it had pockets here.” And what is even better is that the customization is only $7.50 vs. what it would cost to take it to a tailor.

If you have problems when it comes to shopping for clothes, you really have to check out eShakti. They have many different styles to choose from—retro, contemporary, special occasion, boho chic, and all styles are available in sizes 0-36W!! If you shop eShakti, you can get 10% off with promo code “bonjourchica” from now until 11/09/2014. Just make sure you enter it in the promotional code box, it’s not case-sensitive, you can use as many times as you want during this time, and you can use with other promotional offers, but not on sale/clearance or overstock categories. I for one, have my eye on several of their dresses

Wishing you all an awesome week!!

Fall Wish List/40% OFF Banana Republic Code

Fall Wish List

It seems like I am always needing something! Right now, I am obsessing over what I want to be wearing this fall season. I’ve actually been wanting a trench coat ever since I first saw Audrey Hepburn wearing one in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Of course everyone always remembers Audrey in the little black dress, I remember the trench coat. She made every piece of clothing she wore chic.

The trench coat on my wish list is currently selling at Banana Republic. It’s a little different from other trench coats since it has a little flare to it at the bottom. It’s selling for $225 (know I remember why I have yet to buy one). But I do have the BR coupon code for  40% off one full-priced item, today only: N1D8QVRFVL8D….(the number following N is one).

These last couple of years, I have been drawn to taupe & beige colored handbags. So I think it’s time I invested in a black one. I am really loving the classiness of the London Fog handbag.

I have a leopard print scarf, now I need leopard print heels. I found some the other day at Nordstroms Off the Rack, but they were a bit scuffed so I decided to hold off. And I am glad I did, I recently came across these leopard print heels by Nine West. The reviews on Zappos were all positive so I might go for these.

What shall I buy first—the trench coat, handbag, or the leopard print heels??

What’s on your wish list for the fall?
