eShakti Pleated Skirt Review

eShakti is an online store that offers customizable (that's what I said, completely customizable) clothing in an array of sizes and styles. I am sure some of you may have heard about this retailer as they have been making their way through the blogosphere. Recently, their marketing department contacted me and asked if I'd like to do a review of a piece of clothing. I was totally stoked to pick something out, and was pleased I had the option customizing it if necessary. I decided on this skirt:

{worn with Old Navy button-up ($8) Payless coral heels ($7)}
Pleated Front Pencil Skirt - courtesy of eShatki - $69.95

When I ordered the skirt, I noticed that the skirt was meant to hit above the knee. I customized the order indicating I wanted the skirt to hit at the knee (and that I was 5'-4" - because even though I am 5'-2", I am way more leg than torso). The customizations turned out perfect!

I am so in love the architectural pleating and pockets. Not to mention the fantastic tulip shape. It's made of black stretch cotton with subtle lurex pinstripes and has a polytaffeta lining. The best part? It's machine washable.

I am pretty sure I will be wearing it almost constantly.

Why I think it's worth shopping eShatki: All styles are available in all sizes {0 - 26W} at all times. All orders {including custom orders} ship within three days, and even custom orders are returnable. New visitors to their site can receive a $15 gift card, just for registering. It's a very customer-friendly store.

Have any of you had any experience with eShakti? Would you be willing to pay a little more for a custom piece of clothing? Leave a comment!

Thanks for reading,

Happy Shopping!


  1. This skirt looks amazing on you! I'm not sure if I'd be up for paying the money at this point (grad student here), but maybe someday! Definitely like the premise.

  2. I was excited about ordering from eShakti after all the hype on blogs. I ordered a cotton shirt that wasn't customized. I ordered my normal size (M). It was cotton. I was totally bummed that it didn't fit right. I could barely get my arms through the cuffed short-sleeves. I had to pay shipping both ways, so I was out $13 and had nothing to show for it. If I ever order from eShakti again, it will definitely be a custom order.

  3. They contacted me several months ago and I actually received 2 pieces gratis- a top and a pair of pants. The top was great, but the pants were terrible. I have mixed feelings about the quality of the materials and the customization.

  4. But the skirt looks amazing on you! :) Sorry- I didn't mean to be a negative Nancy there!

  5. you look great in that skirt! sounds like a cool idea. i'll def. check them out.

  6. That skirt is darling! I keep meaning to check Eshakti out...someday, someday.
