To quote my dearest Sybil Branson, “Is there anything more exciting than a new frock?!”

Nope! Especially not one from eShakti, whom I’ve partnered with before. They did the smartest thing ever and started offering customized garments at reasonable prices. You can choose the length, the neckline, the sleeves, for some of them you can add embellishments… It’s unlike anything I’ve ever done before.
And I really do mean reasonably priced: My new friend is only $59.95. I customized the length because I’m a giant, but otherwise left it alone. I like that I can finally add length to things, because so many stores assume that tall people don’t need clothes.
It’s a jersey knit, which makes it uber-comfortable, and also has a lot of ruching and draping, which will hide any potential food babies. I like a dress I can eat in.
The other thing I really like about it is that I can wear it year-round. This is obviously more of a fall/winter styling, but it would also look cute with a metallic wedge and some brighter jewelry in the summer. Emerald, or as they call it “bottle green,” is a pretty versatile shade. It’s a color without being all up in your face.
Now I just need a party to attend. Too bad Downton is over, I could’ve made everybody dress up to watch it. Maybe I can do a Mad Men viewing party instead…
Have you ever gotten any customized clothing? What’s the hardest thing for you to find? (My constant foe is still pants that aren’t jeans. And blazers.) Do you have a favorite cocktail dress?
