Tailor Made



I had a friend who only gets his dress shirts and suits tailored made; I never really understood that. In my mind you go to the store, pick out what you want in your size and be on your way. He would tell me “Once you get something tailored to fit you, you will understand what I am talking about!”

A few weeks ago, I got my chance.

eShakti, is a online retailer that allows you to tailor their designs to fit you perfectly. The process is simple, you pick the piece you want, input your exact measurements and 7 days later you have something that is made to fit you at your doorstep.  I have to admit, I was a bit scared diving into my first tailored experience over the internet. What if they ziged when I said zag, what if they went up when I was sure I said down. I remember going with that friend to have a suit tailored for him and it was a long process. This was to take a few strokes of my keyboard and poof I’m all done, but I decided to give it a go and I’m glad I did! The dress I picked was not only more stunning in person, but it fit me like a glove! I have plenty of dresses and I always have to give them little nip/tuck, but this one was perfection. After this I think I will have my underwear tailored lol!

I am a vintage gal, so I love how many of the pieces have a very vintage feel. This dress reminds me of something straight out of the 1940’s but with a very modern twist. I’m obsessed with all the little details of this dress, it fit’s my personal style and is a piece I will have for many years to come.



For my readers  eShakti is offering 10% off your first purchase until April 4th when you use the code “minnieroses”! I’m positive you will love them as much as I do!

Thanks SO much for Reading!
