(Another) Eshakti Review & Giveaway

It's not the first time Eshakti has offered me a cute dress of my choice in exchange for a product review.  How can I resist?  They have a great selection.

Since the "custom" fit on my previous dress choice was way off, I decided to go with standard sizing this time.  My average size 6 seemed safe enough.  I did opt for above the knee length, even shorting my height by 1" to make super certain I got the hem line I wanted.  What?  I like to show some leg, ok?  Sue me.

Once again, it didn't work.  The overall fit was a wee bit snug.  Maybe that's my own fault.  But the length - the length!  How in the world I request above-the-knee and get mid-calf, I just don't know.

Too bad, because it's really the only bad thing about it.  The fabric and construction is wonderful.  The details are adorable.  It even has pockets - golly, I love pockets.

But it's just not going to work for me.  I hope it will work for one of you adorable readers.  It's going to fit a size 4-6 with an average bust.  Though the skirt is too long for my height/taste, it would be perfect for someone taller, or who can rock the midi-length, or who is willing to have it altered.

Here's how to enter:

Leave a comment telling me how you follow Spoils of Wear (google, twitter, facebook, bloglovin', etc.).  Don't forget your email address so I can contact you if you win!

The giveaway will run through next Sunday 3/24.  Good luck!

I also have an eShakti review to do and my dress was WAY off as well. and I did the custom sizing, but the dress itself wasn't "up-to-par" for an $80 dress.....
Oh well, I suppose i should try again! Reva

I would totally love that dress, and it sounds like it would fit me well. Thanks for your honest review of Eshakti! I've been eying a dress, but I've heard some really bad things so I'm hesitant to order. The whole reason I would want to order would be for the custom sizing, but it sounds like that's a bust. =[
