Sponsor: eShakti Review

A while back I received a product review invitation from eShakti.  In exchange for a review they sent me a piece of clothing of my choice to feature in a post.  I was super excited, because honestly, who doesn't love free clothes?  I literally went through their whole site and let me tell you, it was pretty hard to find a favorite, because their pieces are customizable!  I repeat, customizable!  Changing a hem or a neckline can really change a piece of clothing.

Have you ever seen a super cute dress, but wished it had sleeves, instead of straps; a longer or shorter hem; maybe a scoop neck instead of a v?  eShakti lets you customize your pieces so that you can change necklines, sleeve length and dress length.  Even better than that?  They cater to women from sizes 0-36W (can you say #GIRLPOWER?)!

I chose this super cute Umbrella print dress.  I can't think of anything that screams summer with such a fun print like this dress does!  I went with the sleeveless (as shown), knee-length, v-neck option.

There are seams right under the bust and then at the waist that creates a band separating the top from the skirt.  To me it's my favorite type of shape for a dress because for my body type it's the most flattering (plus, it highlights the waist and hides your stomach, lol).

The seam on the side where the zipper was made it a little hard to zip up, but with some quick help from my sister it zipped up fine.  Once it was on I instantly felt happy: the dress gave me an awesome shape, the fabric was a good quality and it was super comfortable!  I love the v-neck, because it flatters my chest nicely and doesn't give it a weird shape as some necklines do to me.  The knee-length skirt was the perfect length because I'm on the taller side (5' 7") and is work-appropriate as well (so I'll get more use out of!).  And my favorite part?  It has pockets!!

I'm already in love with this dress.  It's kind of a fit-and-flare type of dress and it just makes me feel good (seriously, look how small my waist looks!)!  :D

Since it's not quite warm enough to wear anything sleeveless, I paired my umbrella dress with this GAP mint boatneck sweater.  It's warm enough for the changing weather, and casual enough for everyday.  This look is definitely one of my favorite looks of 2015 so far!  :)

I've gone through the site and rounded up all of my favorite picks (which I wouldn't mind magically appearing in my closet, lol, #wishlist) to share with you guys!  And if you use the code 'classicallycait' now through April 9th, you get 10% off!*

Scallop Trim Poplin dress: The scallop hem dresses up what would be a plain dress, gives it some character, and the color is a nice pop to any wardrobe!
Bow Belted Stretch Faux Wrap dress: In my opinion, wrap dresses look good on pretty much any figure.
Ruffle Front Leaf Print dress: I love the structure, the print, and the ruffle going down the front of the skirt.
Anna dress: Navy and ruffle, the ultimate prep combination.

Bold Stripe dress: The bold black and white stripes make this dress super versatile: dress it up, dress it down, and add a pop of color.
Laser-cut Polka Dot dress: I love laser cut designs in clothing, it gives the piece a little something extra.
Polka Dot Jacquard Colorblock dress: The color block on this dress will definitely give you the illusion of a banging hourglass silhouette.
Moto-style dress: One of my favorites.  I love the mix between edgy and girly!

Gingham Check shirtdress: This would look super cute with a pair of riding boots and a vest.
Shawl Collar Sash Waist Gingham check dress: Probably the perfect BBQ dress around.
Crepe Faux Wrap dress: Quick and easy chic in one dress!
Bold Stripe Floral tunic: Definitely a cool statement coverup, perfect for any warm weather getaway.

Mesh Insert Poplin skirt: The mesh insert is a cool feature of this skirt and could definitely transition from the office to happy hour.
Pearl Embellished Faux Leather skirt: This skirt with a cool graphic tee?  Yes please!
Scallop Hem Chambray skirt: What prepster doesn't love chambray and scallops?
Faux Wrap skirt: Simple yet interesting makes this skirt a wardrobe staple for sure.

White Eyelet full skirt: This spring/summer I'm all about crisp, white eyelet.
Embellished Pencil Skirt: Just enough embellishment to give this black pencil skirt some spunk.
Floral Sequin Pencil Skirt: Every girl loves sequins, right?  ;)
Floral Blues Print full skirt: This is not your grandma's floral.

Embellished Bib Voile tunic: This embroidered bib tunic is a summer must!
Beaded Mesh tank top: Totally Gatsby.
Laser Cut Illusion Peplum blouse: The laser cuts make this black top ten times more fashionable.

Chambray Denim Scallop Trim shirt: More chambray and scallops?  I'll take it!
Split Neck Stripe top: Aye, aye captain!  Definitely a cute, yet subtly nautical top.
Copper Embroidered Voile tunic: A sparkly, more grown-up version of the tribal trend.

Sequin Peplum blouse: Because it's five o'clock somewhere!
Peplum Faux Wrap top: Love that wrap tops are reminiscent of ballerinas (plus they give you a nice cinched waist!).
Notch Neck Contrast Trim blouse: This would look amazing paired with a cool leather moto jacket.

I can honestly say that there were only a few downsides.  One, because the pieces can be customized it does take a while from the time you order to the time your item arrives at your door (my dress took almost three weeks, so if you need something for an important event, give yourself plenty of time to order and receive you item).  And two, I pride myself on being a very budget-friendly blogger, and try not to post anything that is too expensive; that being said, some pieces are more on the expensive side.

All in all, I'd definitely say to give this site a look (and check out their social media)!
