I was approached several months ago by eShakti to review one of their dresses. It took me FOREVER to narrow down to my favorite three choices because they have SO many beautiful dresses to choose from! My initial purpose for the dress was to wear while photographing weddings. I wanted something simple, elegant and comfortable. I chose my top three and then put it to my social media buddies to help me out… Which dress I asked?

My online friends did not disappoint! With their help I decided on the first dress, of course. My reasoning being it was a simple, pretty black dress. I liked the shape, but it also has the pretty pop of color around the neckline. Because I wear my camera strap around my neck I tend to ditch the necklaces during weddings anyway, win-win!

The eShakti website was awesome! First you choose your dress. Then you can really make it your own by entering your exact measurements, if you have them. I just went with a generic size and it fits perfect, FYI. Then you choose length of your hem, sleeve type, etc. You really get a dress that is made just the way YOU want it!

My dress has a below the knee length hem, cap sleeves and POCKETS! What photographer doesn’t love pockets!!! Coincidentally, the fit and style of this dress makes it the perfect modest, but fun dress to wear to church! The pockets come in handy there too for the little nick-knacks Klara needs!

My overall experience with eShakti is two thumbs up!!! I WILL be ordering from them again soon! You can find more from eShakti on their ,  &  pages.

What about you? What’s your perfect dress look like? Where would you wear it??

Disclosure: I received the dress complimentary from eShakti in exchange for my online review. As always opinions expressed here are 100% my own!


  1. You look so lovely! I’ve always been a big fan of their clothes specifically their dresses {swoon!}, but so scared of ordering the wrong size! Online shopping gives me anxiety, because I’m unable to try it on lol! Have you ever had to return anything to them for a different size? Was the process simple? Thanks!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Thanks friend!!! Yeah, I get that!!! I have definitely had a clothing fail when ordering online!!! No, I haven’t had to return anything to them before. I really think they’re ordering system is fail proof if you can get someone to help you measure your sizes.

  2. What a pretty dress! You look great! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  3. I definitely love your new black dress! I have several eShakti dresses and I’ve always been impressed!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Agreed! Love the style and the fit! And that you can customize everything yourself! Thanks for the visit Rachel!

  4. Fabulous! This dress is so lovely and wearable at many different occasions…plus it looks super comfortable. I am a serial dress-wearer and my big secret is that I like them so much because they’re so comfortable, especially in the Arizona heat.

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Oh agreed!!! Dresses are much more comfortable during these hot summer months. Well… some dresses anyway. 😉

  5. What a classy black dress! I love the pop of color! And as a photographer totally get the jewelry part!! You want as comfy as possible when wearing a camera for hours!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Absolutely!!! Especially with the camera around your neck all day, any extra weight is unwanted and unnecessary!

  6. What an awesome fit- so cute!
