Meryl Streep once wisely said, “Instant gratification is not soon enough.” But today’s society too often seeks instant fixes that are too trendy. From celebrities for public office to contoured body parts. Sometimes it feels like the times are forcing us to live with a little less charm. Lucky for me, I was recently introduced to eShakti – an instant wardrobe solution that doesn’t sacrifice custom and classic style for trendiness.
Through the years I’ve slowly shed the mentality that different aspects of life require distinctly different wardrobes. We were all once budding college girls who let the scene set our look rather than letting our look set the scene. Classes. Internships. Family occasions. And of course, clubbing. If one piece ever meandered onto a different scene, it would be instant upside down land.
As you get to know the real you over your lifetime, I believe everything becomes more authentic. Goals, values, relationships and style. This is why I was beyond excited when eShakti reached out to create a bespoke piece for me. EShakti is a self-described deliverer of custom and on-style, mannequin-worthy looks. By blending unique fabrics, patterns and cuts, eShakti delivers the easy-access family tailor experience that most Indians are accustomed to.
So, I went to eShakti.com and let my creative juices run wild through my finger tips. I dreamed up an elegant midi-cut dress in a chambray sheath fabric. It brought the Britney Spears all-denim attempt of a lost age into present day. The texture balanced the length and added up to class. The floral wool embellished detailing was a perfect pre-spring addition to my wardrobe, but not by some happy coincidence. Like all the florals I’ve curated for my arsenal, this one is truly “me”: cool tones, all seasonal and feminine without a faint of girly. From indigo vision to curve hugging reality, this dress was crafted and delivered to my doorstep in less than 2 weeks.
The unboxing was skinny shaming [insert other body issue here]-free, fast-forwarding the usual “If only there was less dress, or more me,” internal monologue. A perfect fit after a single try-on, this dress went straight from box to suitcase for a trip I was taking the very next day.
My instant gratification instincts told me this dress would be cast in many scenes of my life, and that I’d happily keep it forever. Experiment and create your own forever-piece at eShakti. Use this exclusive promo code for a 10% discount SonyaKeshwan’!
