I have said time and time again that I am not usually one for prints, so when I find one I love, I get obsessed. As I was pouring over the new eShakti collection online, I stumbled upon this sweet little number and obviously fell head over heels for the print! And even better? It's black & white, making it 3x more versatile in my closet than a bright color. From far away the print looks like houndstooth and plays tricks on the eyes.
But giraffes!!! It now lives right next to my horse print dress and I am pretty sure they will call on the rest of the herd and Rafiki will come hopping out of my closet any minute now.
eShakti has a goal of delivering the truest fit possible, allowing you to purchase regular sizes as well as customize any garment to your specific measurements. They also let you add sleeves, pockets, length, etc. if you want! I stayed with the original design of this dress, knowing that the regular length would be perfect on me and sleeveless would be great for layering in the fall and winter months. When I placed my order, however, I was worried about the fit of the bodice, as I usually have trouble with the fit of that area so I prefer to try-on. As you can see, though, it fits perfectly and I have no complaints at all. I was pleasantly surprised and like that I can now feel comfortable ordering fitted pieces from the site and know they will fit. That reassurance means everything to a customer, no?
