The Post I Pretend to be a Model with eShakti

I love taking pictures.  Love seeing that vision and picture in my head and getting behind the camera and making it happen.  When it is time for me to be in front of the camera and the model, well it is quite the different experience.

This last Sunday when I wore my beautiful new dress from eShakti (the Cotton Poplin Colorblock dress) I had to show it off and so put Eric behind the camera to see how things would go with him as the director and me as the model.

He had me do the serious pose

It didn't last long

Now twirl for me girl
Now point up at the sky like there is something up there

yea not so much-- I told him it wouldn't work

Okay pretend like you are looking at something to your side

and look at your shoes

Now grab the collar to look GQ

But with such a cute fun dress

it was easy to get cute pictures.

I seriously don't remember the last time I got so many compliments at church on a dress.  It is definitely a new personal favorite.

There is a small zipper in the side to help get it on and off and while I was able to get it on easily enough, it really almost took two to get it off.  Also the skirt on this particular dress does wrinkle easily, so make sure you just pull it out of the wash right away.

The best part it was customized just for me-- I had them change the cap sleeve it came with to a bit of a longer sleeve as sometimes as certain cap sleeves tend to dig into my armpits.  So how much would it cost to change the sleeves or even the length of this dress?

At eShakti it only costs $7 total to get any alterations you want!

eShakti has some new features:
-They now offer size 0-36W (and of course Custom sizes and styles as always).  They also provide options to remove/include embroidery, pockets or other embellishments on our products.

-An exclusive Bridesmaids line has just been introduced as well.
-A new customer gallery where images that customers (and bloggers) have shared are shown.


So head over to their site and check out their hundreds of dresses, skirts, shirts, etc.

Then I will be able to see your modeling pictures!

  7. I jumped to your blog after seeing you in this dress on instagram. And then I thought that this dress would be perfect for my graduation, but surely they wouldn't have my size (as I'm a bit thick around the hips!) ... but they do! I've never heard of this website, and am now off to search for a graduation dress!! I'm glad you did this!
