A Perfect Fit with eShakti

Do you ever get frustrated about not finding the right size and fit of clothing? I feel like shirts from stores like Express are made for tall fashion models, and look like nightgowns on me since I'm short!

eShakti is a new online retailer that lets you tailor your clothes down to the inch. Not just the length of the pants, but everything down to the inseam and lengths of sleeves on tops. Their Mission is:
  • To make every customer look her absolute best.
  • Provide amazing styles and a wide variety of fabrics and color choices in all sizes from 0-26.
  • Ensure the best possible fit and fall by providing all customers with the ability to personalize any item.
I received a dress from eShakti after sending in my measurements for length, sleeve length, waist and chest. The dress fits me perfectly, and I got to customize it for the Fall weather by making it 3 quarter length sleeves.

Here is a promo code especially created for your readers An9Z6I to get 15% off when they shop at eShakti - valid till the end of November.

Note: This review includes products that I received as samples, provided by the brand company or a PR rep. Please click here for more information regarding my disclaimer.

'Trashing' the Dress in Detroit

(picture by Alex Jovanovski)

Want to get another use out of your wedding gown? Take post wedding pictures in it! 'Trashing the Dress' doesn't necessarily mean turn it into trash, it's just a phrase that has become very popular for taking pictures in your wedding dress, after your wedding. My 3 best friends and me were all married in the past 2 years. We decided to put on our dresses and head to downtown Detroit and take some fun pictures of us and our beautiful, underestimated city.

Thanks to my best girls, Beth, Justine and Kristen, our photographer Alex, and assistant photographer Torrey - so much fun!

Glamour Woman of the Year - Fergie

Check out pics from her photo shoot and her interview with Katie Couric.

When asked about reaching this level of success and fulfilling her dreams, she responded, "For some lucky reason or gift from God, I've known what I wanted to do since I was a little girl. And even through disappointments and rejection, there was something inside of me that wouldn't give up. I'm a survivor, and I'm very driven."

Congrats Fergie!
