Bahamian Goddess


Have you ever found a dress that fits so perfectly, that you want to wear it over and over again? Well I did! I received this black maxi dress from eShakti that was customized specifically for me. Eshakti is an online women's fashion apparel company offering sizes 0-36W and custom clothing.

I must admit, I was a bit skeptical about getting a custom made dress online, mainly being that I've had pieces made before in person and some never got it right; but Eshakti hit the nail on the head. The material is so rich, I've never had a maxi dress that was thick and flowy at the same time. The best thing about this dress is the pockets. POCKETS! Best idea yet. I got the dress an inch longer because I love when a dress lightly sweeps the ground.

I received so many compliments about this dress and especially about the fit. Many Bahamians are use to going to a tailor or seamstress to get their clothes made but having an option to purchase custom clothing online blew their minds. I'm currently eying a few items on the Eshakti site, the end of the month can't come soon enough.
