Outfit of the Week: Eshakti & a Show

File this under Posts I Meant to Post Two Months Ago. Sorry! I was suffering from a case of Holidaze. Anyway, I scrapped the original post and wore this last night. Here we go:
In case you've not heard, Eshakti is a clothing company with a unique twist. You pick what you'd like and then you customize it, or you can get ready-to-wear. I'll explain in more detail below. The inventory constantly changes, which is a good thing, but if there's something you like, grab it asap. They sell from size 0-26, so there's something for everyone. And there are constant sales! Here's the silky, ruffly, lavender top I chose (note the Huggable Hanger I posted about yesterday and my snazzy shower curtain!):


What was my experience? I had great customer service and would happily use Eshakti again. How did I customize my top? I wanted thicker straps on the top, so I got it customized. I also put in my height, which most would call petite, but I've a long torso, so the top was a little short on me. The tank is flowy and little larger than what I normally wear, so keep that in mind when you order. But you can always return if not to your liking. I like the tank because I can wear it alone in warmer months, keep it casual with a cardigan, or dress it up with a blazer--that means it fits my Clothes Buying Rule (more on that next week!).


When: Yesterday
Where: Midtown Art Theater
Why: Premiere for Showtime's new show House of Lies & season 2 premiere of Shameless (thanks Entertainment Weekly!)
What I Wore:
  • Lavender ruffled top c/o Eshakti
  • Black Blazer, Old Navy
  • Necklace, F21
  • Jeans, Old Navy

Yesterday I talked about Closet Makeover Essentials, and after some requests to see the tools, I'm posting them below (the hanger is pictured above). The My Little Steamer  & 4-Way Mirror (fold the sides in or out):


What gadget or outfit have you been loving lately?

  2. The top looks nice on you! Cool concept for that shop ... Will have to check it out. I particularly like your four way mirror. A good mirror is something I'm currently lacking ... Would be great to have a 4 way.
