Day to Night to Weekend Chic with eShakti


I have had some readers ask me about eShakti and my thoughts on the clothing.  From what I gather, there is an apprehension from some (especially Western shoppers)  on the East Asian ethnic style of many of the pieces from this web store.  I, personally, have been very happy with what I have ordered from eShakti.  And while many of the pieces seem to target a specific audience, a lot of the pieces are very wearable for even the most western styled of women. 

Another great option from this site is that they offer custom sized pieces for a small fee.  Their sizes go up to a size 26.   I recently purchased the Sash Waist Garthered Skirt  for $44.95 from eShakti and I must say I really love it!  From all the pieces I have ordered from them the material is of a high quality and their prices are very low, most pieces ranging from $40 - $80.  This website is a gem of a find.  Most of the pieces I have ordered have been very plain basic pieces that I can incorporate easily in to my wardrobe.  The skirt I just purchased is very versatile and can easily go from work to night to weekend chic.

I did remove the sash from the skirt.  It just wasnt me.  But with a pair of scissors or a seam ripper you can easily remove the sash and no one would know.

Also, please forgive me, I am so over Winter...LOL!

Daytime or Work Look

With this look I have on a strapless top from David's Bridal (it was a separate from a bridesmaid dress that I have found great use for), the high waist skirt from eShakti, a croped silk bolero and silver belt  from Ann Taylor, necklace form H&M and silver shoes from Target.



Night

From this look I just removed the Bolero from Ann Taylor for an easy transition from day to night.  All the remaining pieces remain the same from the day look.



Casual Weekend Chic

With this look, I just added a tank that I purchased from Target on Clearance for $2.50 (yes really) and a pair of American Eagle flats from Payless.  Add a couple of pieces of your casual jewerly and your ready to run your weekend errands. 




So I put my Curvy Girl stamp of approval on eShakti.  Happy Shopping!!!

  2. @thefatandskinny - you just have to know what to pick and if you are hesistate about the more ornate pieces go with something plain.

  3. I love the skirt, the shape is just so cute. Although I think I prefer it without the sash. The night look is my personal favourite

  6. Wow, you do a great job with putting all the looks together. Love the skirt, and now I'm anticipating pairing up different things with my seperate piece from David's Bridal, I'm in a wedding in April. The only thing is, is that its a red wine color. Great Blog!!

  7. @Fergster...its possible you just have to think a little outside the box and stop looking at the bridesmaid dress as a hideous addition to your wardrobe...LOL
