When eShakti asked if I wanted to review a piece from their Spring 2014 collection, I jumped at the chance to receive another one of their lovely items. So many of their dresses have such great vintage-like style. I chose this little polka dot chambray number knowing right away that I wanted to layer it with my white swiss dot blouse. Isn't the contrast hem the best? The monochromatic coloring of the dress makes it perfect for layering and fun colored accessories too!

I used the option where eShakti allows you to send in your measurements to receive a custom sized item, which was great except for the torso length. That isn't a measurement they take and this dress was almost two inches too long from the shoulder to the waist. That was a bit of a bummer, but I decided to just do a little surgery on the shoulders of the dress to make it work. It ended up bringing the neckline up pretty high, but I still really like how it looks. The craftsmanship on these dresses is so nice that it did kill me a little inside to go at it with my scissors and sewing machine. Oh well, it turned out fine in the end. I guess that's all that matters!
