Flamingo Fun with eShakti

The obsession with flamingos is still going strong.  I finally erased Ashlynn's birthday chalkboard on our mantle and replaced it with a flamingo when I actually had the girls napping at the same time.  I'm pretty impressed with myself that I did it first try without anything to look at, just my memory of reading Flora every night. (Yes, I realize I'm totally bragging, but crafty I am, artistic I am not).



Anyway, with potty training underway (please be patient with me regarding an update, I hope to have a successful story to share when we make it over the hill!) we have been either in dresses or pantless around here. I mean, Ashlynn, I still wear shorts every day and sadly just a rotation of the same three pairs.

She loves her "Feen-go" dress and tee and my coordinating bird custom eShakti shell.  eShakti is the only online women's apparel company offering custom sewn clothing in sizes 0-36.  I actually remember hearing a lot about the company years ago, pre-children, when this blog focused a lot more on shopping and (shopping at) Anthropologie.  Lots of Anthro style bloggers would sing eShakti's praises for having the similar lady like style, but on a totally custom sizing scale.  They have a ton of beautiful dresses, but without any big events this year (our first summer wedding and shower free) I decided to try a cotton sateen tank that would get more wear when offered a chance to review.




Ordering was so easy and it arrived to me within 10 days.  I used the standard size chart, but I think it's an incredible feature that they have a custom size field where you can enter your specific measurements.  The tank fits like a glove and made of quality material.



I adore the top since it's not in your face flamingo print and being black on yellow so it's a bit quirky and unexpected.  It's a perfect top for casual summer dinner out now and I can't wait to pair it under a blazer, some skinnies, and booties in the Fall.

Have you ever order from eShakti or had something custom made or altered to fit your measurements?  Learn more about eShakti's custom products at Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter!

  1. Haha, I hope to have a success story too. my oldest daughter just turned 25 months (today) and LOVES using the potty, however she still isnt consistent in telling me everytime or telling me BEFORE she actually goes. I need to bite the bullet and just put her in panties, maybe this coming weekend.

  2. Ashlynn is 26m and until this wkd had never actually gone on the potty. While I haven't done the 3-Day/Cold Turkey method completely, putting in undies (or training pants) has definitely helped. I know at this point she's fully physical able to do it, it's just the mental part she needs to overcome. It hasn't been a walk in the park, but proud so far for her effort :)

  6. Great job on the flamingo drawing - at first I thought it was a print from a store! Never heard of eShakti, but I'll have to look into it. Oh the potty training phase... we're quickly approaching that too, and I'm super nervous!

  7. The tank is so cute on you! I really like how subtle the print is, and I've loved everything I've seen from eshatki. Looking forward to hearing more about the potty training! I'm holding out on training Owen for another week.
