Happy Friday, Fashionable Friends!

Recently, I discovered another unique and affordable online shopping site eShaki after Jennifer from the company contacted me about doing a clothing review on any item from their shop, and I was thrilled to get this opportunity!

I want to be upfront that the item I chose was sent to me for free though I held the right to be honest about with my review. I picked a sparkle-tastic holiday, cocktail and new year dress with pockets that I just love, which you can see me in below!

I gave them all of my measurements, including height, and asked that it be shortened to skim just a bit above the knee, which to me is a more flattering length, since the original dress online fell about mid-calf between the knee and ankle, and I have to say, they nailed the length adjustments!

Though I kept the original neckline, even though it could be altered as well, I chose to have the sleeve length be made to a short sleeve, instead of cap sleeve, but think it would be beautiful sleeveless as well, so it is more of a tank stye top to the dress without any of the tulle and might end up getting the tulle sleeves taken off later to give it a new look.

The best part about eShaki is that they are never sold out of anything that you see on their site, they ship your purchase within 3 business days and all the clothing is customizable so you can get the best fit and have it in the length you want, with the sleeve and neckline you want, etc., and all for an affordable price!

Not only did Jennifer offer me something, but she was kind enough to offer each of my Fabulous Fashions 4 Sensible Style readers a special $20 off any purchase using the specially made discount offer FF4SS0811 until December 31, 2011! This will help you save a little extra on something fun for yourself or on a gift for someone else during the holiday season!

I feel the quality of this dress is just beautiful, it is also fully lined, and I love that it has pockets and is a heavier weight, fully lined dress so that it falls well on the body and gives a bit of the twirl feel when you turn from the weight of the sequins, which move effortlessly on the bottom.

Overall, the fit is lovely, just slightly big on me in the waist area, which I pinned in at the seam line by the side zipper, but that area is usually big on me on any dress because I seem to have an oddly small waist for my height, but then have fuller hips, which can make for unique fitting at times. That said, I am very impressed with the quality, speed of alterations, order and delivery and would not only recommend them, but order from them in the future!

What I love most is that they can customize your order to the exact size you need for the best possible fit and style options that you want for the affordable additional fee of only $7.50, which to me is worth every penny and quite accurate.

Let me know if you have anything from eShakti and what you think or if you plan on ordering in the future and don't forget to take advantage of the $20 off discount! Woo Hoo!!!

SIDE NOTE: In case you are wondering, my shoes are Michael Shannon black pumps from It's A Wrap ($12.00) and my rhinestone dome ring is from Charlotte Russe ($4.00), which I love sporting during the holidays.
