seasonless nautical stripes eshakti striped dress pewter high heels fall 2017how to use eshakti

Have you ever wondered how to wear nautical stripes in the fall? Or perhaps, during any season? When I first spotted this dress from eShakti, I instantly fell in love! My only concern was that it had nautical stripes! How could I rock this in the fall? Would my accessories play well with it? As soon as I started playing around with my fall accessories, I realized you can wear nautical stripes any time of year! They don’t need espadrilles or boat shoes, this classic look can be paired with fall colors, and fabrications. Love that!

Have you ever shopped at eShakti? I have a few pieces in my closet from eShakti, and I love them! The website is full of different types of styles, to suit any taste. You can hate the neckline, or the length of a dress-and still ending up ordering it! This is due to the fact that you can customize just about everything on a piece you find at eShakti.

I love v-necks, and tend to think they are the most flattering necklines on me; aside from turtlenecks. So when I first spotted this nautical stripes dress, I knew the first thing I would do is change the neckline. I clicked into the dress, and then scrolled down to customize it. I changed the neckline to a v-neck, picked out flattering sleeves, left the length; and voila! I ended up with a really flattering, nautical stripes dress which transcends seasons.

You can customize anything you find on The necklines, the sleeves, the hemline; you can even customize it for your measurements! This is a godsend for me. I am a petite on the bottom, and regular size on top. This makes dresses too long, or jumpsuits ill-fitting. With eShakti, I can shorten the hem if I need to, or adjust a full piece. Love that!

eShakti denim jumper

eshakti denim jumper review how to wear a denim jumper denim jumper for winter into spring how to style a denim jumper denim jumper trend for spring jumper trend

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / Chanel spring lipstick / Gap turtleneck / denim jumper c/o eShakti (sold out, visit for more options) / faux shearling jacket (on major sale!!) / JW Anderson handbag / Kendra Scott ring / Kendra Scott nail polish / Gucci spring slides

Jumpers were a huge trend on the runways of New York Fashion Week. In addition to being a hot runway trend, fashion insiders were already wearing the trend on the streets of New York Fashion Week in September. This my friends, is a trend you cannot ignore.

When eShakti approached me to test out one of their custom fit dresses, I jumped at the chance. They have this fabulous denim jumper as part of their dress collection; and it is ideal for transitioning from winter into spring. Not to mention, it is a denim jumper which combines two hot spring trends; denim and jumpers. Love that!

There is something about a jumper which reminds me of my childhood. I went to Catholic school for a few years and we had to wear jumpers. In addition to my school uniform, jumpers were a popular fashion trend in the 1980’s, and well into the early 1990’s when jumpers transformed from thick strapped dresses over blouses into spaghetti strapped dresses over tee shirts. But there is something more grown-up about the trend this time around.

This time, the jumper trend does not have rules. You can wear anything underneath any sized strappy dress and it is “street style” approved. I love this denim jumper by eShakti since it combines the denim trend, the jumper trend, and a custom fit which is fabulous for shorter gals like me.

When you order from eShakti, they ask you where you want the dress to hit you on your leg, how tall you are, and for any modifications. For this denim jumper, the length could be maxi, midi, or mini. I chose above the knee. They also ask how tall you are, so this helps ensure the hemline hits in the right place. Works like a charm!

I wasn’t thinking about what I planned to wear underneath this jumper when I ordered it. When worn over a turtleneck, as in this post, the dress is a bit snug. Worn alone, which I plan to do in warmer months, it fits perfectly. If you plan to layer a form fitting jumper, or any jumper for that matter, order one size up to leave room for what you plan to wear underneath.

This isn’t the first time I have ordered from eShakti. I have a fun pink skirt from them I ordered a few years ago. The quality is quite good for the pricing. The fabric holds up after being washed, and the stitching stays in place. I am pleased with how well their clothing is made.

My denim jumper is sold out, but there are plenty more jumpers, including denim jumpers, in stock from eShakti. For more customizable clothing options, visit

The perfect full skirt from eShakti


Photo: Earrings: Stella & Dot (similar here) / Lipstick: c/o Dolce & Gabbana “Rose” / Shirt: Banana Republic / Bracelets: Beau Bijou, Tory Burch and c/o Twisted Silver / Skirt: c/o eShakti (use code “bayes” to save 10% off) / Nail Polish: c/o Dolce & Gabbana “Lilac” / Handbag: Chanel (also love SAVE or SPLURGE) / Shoes: Prada

I have been searching for months for the perfect full skirt for spring; which can be hard to find when you are 5’4″ like me! Most of the skirts on the market are too full for my short frame or too long; which requires extra money for shortening. So, when eShakti contacted me to review their online store, I was thrilled!

eShakti not only has a fabulous collection of midi and full skirts (which are my current obsessions), they have an amazing line of casual and dressy dresses! In addition to a variety of styles, silhouettes and fabrics, eShakti customizes your order for your height! YES! You read that right. eShakti asks you for your measurements when you order your clothing. This way the garment arrives at your doorstep with your perfect proportions. Love that!

This beautiful skirt arrived at my house the perfect length for my 5’4″ frame. I was thrilled I did not need to have it shortened. Alterations can be upwards of $50 an item depending upon the hem, so having a skirt or dress arrive in the length I need for my height is luxurious. I also love the pockets in the skirt!

The “Sash Waist Poplin Skirt” I ordered turned out to be a versatile piece. The sash is detachable so the skirt can be worn with or without the bow depending upon occasion; or if you don’t want to appear to wear the same skirt twice! Love that!!!
