Day 263 or I Got a Pretty Dress to Review...

I was contacted by eShakti to review one of their products. How lucky am I?!?!

If you have never visited their site, you absolutely should. The quality is extremely high. The colors are bright and the designs are diverse. I chose a lovely coral halter dress and there are some real bragging points!

First off, the dress is made very well. It is fully lined. The material is both attractive and sturdy. And unlike so many items I see today, the edges are fully surged, the stiching complete with a good thread, and the ruffled hems are double-stitched.

Secondly, the back of the halter is high enough that a traditional strapless bra can be worn (no wack-a-doo convertible bra necessary! Though a bra with a clear halter strap would work, as well.) This was a huge selling point for me.

The third point is that the dress can be worn with or without the provided a belt. The dress comes with a beautiful woven tie belt. The dress looks great both ways.

Finally, an extra bonus. The dress has pockets. (How much does a mom love that?) While it is cute enough to be worn to a party, it is comfortable and practical enough to wear anyday with the kids. I love, Love, LOVE this! With the ridiculous heat of a Texas summer, I often wear dresses. This dress is simple and stylish -- what more could one ask for? Below you will find photos of the dress and its details.











I hope that I have persuaded you that eShakti is worth a look. I received no compensation for my opinions; only a sample dress for review. The opinions represented are mine. I want to say a big thank you to Shakti dresses for this lovely opportunity. I cannot say enough about how well I was treated or how pleased I am with the product. So, thanks!!!

Finally, for those of you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for more Lessons I Learned on a Mexican Cruise -- because that's what I do to people, leave them breathless awaiting my next word (LOL) -- stay tuned, more is coming. And hopefully with pictures, I am still suffering the wrath of the tech gods. Move over Zeus, the mighty blue screen of laptop death is far more mighty and destructive.

I have a dress from them, too! It's SO pretty, but it didn't get here in time for me to wear to a wedding. So I ended up hanging it up. I have to review it, as well but wanted to WEAR it first! Yours is SO pretty!
