Greetings! I hope you're having a great week.
I want to start off by mentioning how lovely the weather got while we were shooting these photos. We were ready for a cloudy late-afternoon... until the sun just came out of nowhere and made the natural lighting even more exciting to work with! I have to thank my two friends, Thien and Tommy, for spending their time with me to take these lovely photos. I appreciate the things they do for me.
A media relations representative from eShakti reached out to me via email expressing their interest in a collaboration with Kwinsturr. I never heard of the company before but from what I learned, eShakti is an online women's apparel company that specializes in product customizations ranging from styles, sizes, and length options. Before I accept any kind of partnership I always like to verify the brand by learning more about them. This gives me a better understanding of whom I’m communicating with and if it fits my personal interest. While reading other blogger reviews I came to the decision to collaborate, woohoo! Of course I was excited and agreed to send in a sample order to receive a custom made dress. The first thing I had to do was measure myself -I couldn't find my fabric measuring tape so I went to my local Walgreens and bought this one. I knew I wanted to pair this dress with my faux leather satchel from Forever 21 and Life Stride's stylish nude pumps featuring their soft system.
My challenge was finding the "it" dress. I never ordered a custom made dress before so I was very eager to find the one. It took me awhile to respond with the sample order, but I'm thankful for the representative's patience. I also learned that dresses on eShakti's website are very popular depending on season and style -so it is better to make your order quickly if you've found that desirable dress. I'll link the one I got however, I can't guarantee that it will be available for long. Here are some styles I had in mind before selecting the colorblock poplin dress:

I selected this dress because I felt the other dresses weren't exactly my style. They're all gorgeous but this one truly made me feel like myself as I am a huge fan of this neckline and the shirtdress look. After I filled out the custom measurements area, I didn't do too many customizations on #3. Furthermore, I am happy to say that the dress I chose was exactly what I expected! From quality material, comfortability, POCKETS(!), and the customizations for my arms and waist. I look forward to wearing this to a special occasion! Maybe not for my graduation, but I'll find an event for it.
My experience with the company was a positive one. And to bring it to and end, here's something for you in return of reading and being an amazing person.
