Two Teens And Their Mama: eShakti and Summer Challenge Ends

eShakti and Summer Challenge Ends


Real fashion for real people - that's the motto of eShakti, an online retailer of women's clothing. When I was asked to review one of their pieces, I jumped at the chance.  I've been trying to incorporate more dresses into my mama wardrobe, and their line of feminine and flattering styles seemed like a perfect fit for me.

The best feature of eShakti is the customization option.  All of their clothing is offered in sizes 0-36w.  You can order off their standard size charts, or put in your measurements if you are hard to fit.  I also gave them my height - can't say I've ever had an online retailer ask me that before! You can change the sleeves or the length with a click of your mouse.

I have to admit I had a very difficult time choosing a piece to review - everything was so pretty!  I eventually went with this Polka Dot Print Keyhole Dress, because well, polka dots.  I kind of love polka dots.  The dress is a lightweight, cotton voile, perfect for summer outings or with a sweater in the spring.  The banded empire waist is very flattering, and best of all, there are pockets.  Polka dots and pockets = perfection!  The dress is machine washable (always a bonus), and didn't wrinkle at all on a date with my hubby.


Thank you to eShakti for the opportunity to review this dress.  If you'd like to check them out, head over to their website and use the code "teenmama" to get 10% off your order.
I was provided this dress for review, but all opinions are my own.


In other news, sadly this week marks the end of the Summer Style Me Challenge.  Once again, I had so much fun wearing outfits that Alison picked out for me - one less thing to think about in the morning.  This time around even more women participated in the challenge, and it was wonderful to hop onto the facebook page and see how everyone was interpreting the outfits. Plus, I tried out a maxi skirt, a fedora, and a side ponytail - stepping outside my comfort zone! Guess I'll have to dress myself again until the Fall Challenge starts.


I'm linking up today with these lovely ladies.  Go check out what they wore for the last week of the challenge!

  7. Love how you layered the pink and white shirts. I tried Shataki out once, but it didn't end up working and I had to pay shipping back plus some other fee, so it really sucked cause you were paying double for shipping. I was super annoyed...perhaps I should give them another try.
