Welcome to another edition of What I Wore Wednesday! I apologize for the radio silence around here the last week or so. I have been fighting with what I believe might be migraines. I used to get them in college, but haven’t had any for a long long time. I would’ve been just dandy if they’d stayed away forever, but I’m starting to think that might not be the case. Anyways, I’m feeling better today and I’m so excited about this post!
Last month I was contacted by eShakti, an international fashion design company who makes custom clothes for women in all sizes from 0-36W, about teaming up to feature a piece that I got to customize for myself! And let me tell you, I had so much fun doing it! With design teams based in London, New York and India they are able to customize each piece based on your requests. The skirt was pretty perfect itself, so I just made a few adjustments with my customization. I shortened the hemline it just a tad and added pockets. See below for how I styled this skirt and read on to learn how you can customize your own pieces and how the process works AND for a COUPON CODE on your next purchase! It’s SUPER easy and SO MUCH FUN!
Skirt: eShakti c/o // Jacket: Choies (sold out), similar, love this draped one // Sweater: Old Navy (old) super similar, here, here // Boots: VS (old), similar // Necklace: Baublebar // Clutch: Asos (old) similar, here // Earrings: ily Couture
First you pick the piece that you want. They have everything from dresses, tops, skirts, jackets, etc. There are so many patterns and silhouettes to chose from. I’ve picked out a couple of my favorites for the holiday season.
After you select your piece, you put in your measurements. They show you right on the website how to take your measurements and provide you with tips on how to get the most accurate measurement.
Next is the fun part, in my opinion, the styling! From a pop-up menu you chose how you want it customized. For example, a dress, how long or short do you want it? What neckline do you like? Do you want sleeves? If so, how long? Or short? The different combinations are endless! And the best part, they even have the option of adding pockets!! Pockets just add an extra element of chic to a garment. I added pockets to my skirt!
After that, you’re done. You just wait for your item to be created and shipped to you, which only took two weeks! Use coupon code: STYLEINASMALLTOWN (not case sensitive, to be entered in the “promotional code” box) to get 10% off your next order when you shop from 11/12/2014 – 12/12/2014. This is the perfect opportunity to get that new dress that you will need for any upcoming holiday parties or a fun new skirt! Be sure to follow eShakti on Facebook, Pinterest, & Instagram to keep up with all their new arrivals and sales!
As always, thanks for reading!
