You know that song “it’s going to be a brighttttttttt, sunshine day?” That song basically came to life when we were shooting these pics- so apologies in advance for the major squint factor I’ve got going on today! ha.
On the bright side (see what I did there?!) I have the most exciting new discover to share with you today- a website where you can make custom clothing (including this formal gown)- for under $100! Yep… it sounds too good to be true but it’s not and I’ve got all the details!
As y’all know, I do a lot of work in my free time in the non-profit world, and because of that I usually have about 3-4 black tie galas a year to attend. As much as I LOVE buying a new outfit, it is super hard for me to justify spending a couple hundred dollars on formal gowns that I’ll only wear 1-2 times (social circles tend to overlap at events in St Pete!) . I’ve had too many friends with sketch experiences from rental sites too, so that’s never been a #1 option for me either. But then I learned about eshakti and their gorgeous gown selection!
MAKING A CUSTOM GOWN WITH ESHAKTI
Basically it works like this: eshakti has an extensive collection of dresses and gowns on their site (from casual to formal). Once you find a style that you like, you get to work customizing! On my particular dress, it started as a tea-length dress with a much higher neckline. I made the dress floor-length (and put in my hight so that it was tailored to hit the floor on my 5’4 frame!), dropped the neckline, and entered my sizing information so that the fit would be spot on. The dress shipped in about a week and when it arrived it was like it was tailor-made for me… because it was! Seriously y’all, every part of the dress fit perfectly- from the waist to the neckline to the length of the dress! It was stunning and “wowed” at the Queen of Hearts Ball that I wore it to 🙂 I don’t know anywhere else you could get a custom, formal gown made for under $100 – eshakti is the real deal!
