OOTD: Corange

Dress: c/o eShakti | Tights: Target | Pumps: Target | Belt: Forever 21

Have you heard of eShakti? It's an online clothing boutique that has seriously awesome clothes. And the best part (in my opinion, at least) is that all of their clothing is customizable! Yes, not only can you get an item custom fit to your size, but you can also choose the "custom styling" option which allows you to further modify the neckline, length or even add sleeves!

So, of course, when eShakti contacted me about reviewing an item, I immediately fell in love with this dress. This color, which I call corange (coral + orange) is so beautiful and can be worn in many seasons. However, this dress (as pictured) didn't have sleeves. (And sleeves are a MUST with me!) I was completely and totally excited that their new custom styling option allowed me to add 3/4 length sleeves!

So, on to the proper review portion: I love that this dress is a silhouette I wouldn't normally choose. It's very retro and makes me feel a lot like Zooey Deschanel (my fave!) when I wear it. The color is amazing and the fit is...well...perfect! The only thing I don't absolutely love about the dress is that it wrinkles pretty easily. However, I think that a good ironing with starch should help to remedy the tendency to wrinkle for at least a few wears. But, other than that, I'm in love with this dress. I received so many compliments on it the first time I wore it. I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can rock this one bare-legged with ballet flats in the spring and summer. Way to go eShakti!! You hit a homerun with me!

Linking up with The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.


  1. I'm digging Corange. I just got a shirt that color last week.

  2. What do you feel about sizing? True to size? Runs big? Small?


    1. Ally, I feel like the sizing is pretty accurate. I intentionally measured anywhere from a 1/2 inch to 1 inch larger in some areas because I didn't want something very tight. I also think that the fit will depend on the fabric that you choose (cotton vs. viscose or polyester).

  3. I saw you in this Sunday and thought it looks even better in person! :)

  4. I love that dress. I love the color. its great!
    come visit :)

  5. you look adorable in this color! i usually stray away from it because i'm never too sure, but now i might have to try again!

    xo, Courtney

  6. I love that color! I've always gravitated to both coral and orange because I like the way they look against my complexion, but I never would've thought to combine them. The fit of that dress is fabulous too!

    Found you via What I Wore Wednesday

  7. You are so darn cute!!!! :) Love the dress!
