I almost screamed when I took this dress out of the box. I knew it was pretty when I picked it out, but the colors and pattern on this dress were so gorgeous I actually went back to look at the dress online to compare. The colors are of course beautiful on the website (that’s why I bought it, duh) but they are so incredibly vibrant and look like the most beautiful rainbow of blues and purples, in person.

Eshakti lets you customize your garments and offers a lot of options, including customizing the length for free. I decided to add sleeves to the dress, mostly because I am just a huge fan of one piece outfits and never feel like wearing a sweater or jacket, so a sleeve makes the dress a little more cool-weather appropriate. I also changed up the neckline and opted for a wide scoop instead of a square neck ’cause I’m a sucker for a scoop. I love a short dress, and because of my big ol’ booty I can always count on a knee length dress being plenty short, so I didn’t have to adjust the length at all. Add another dress to my Eshakti section in my closet (yeah, I’ve ordered just a few plus size dresses from them)!

This dress makes me feel like maybe I could settle into Winter for awhile. The heavy fabric (yeah, it’s dry clean only but some times you just gotta get what you love and say “fuck it” to your life rules) is perfect for sunny days and I don’t have to fear a sudden breeze blowing up my dress. The holiday’s have passed, and I’m ready to get started on all my 2016 projects! I think you will all be excited about the fun things I’ve got in store!

    Eshakti is great! I like the coupons they give out sometimes. I’ve heard celebrities buy clothes from Eshakti.

    • fatgirlflow January 4, 2016 at 4:16 pm

      i love them too! They do have REALLY good sales REALLY often!!!

  • Kelly S January 5, 2016 at 2:55 pm

    Love those boots, but I couldn’t find them at Simply Be. Wish I knew what they were called! Beautiful dress, looks amazing on you.

  • Sarah Anne January 5, 2016 at 6:18 pm

    Alright, you’re making me wanna try eShakti again even though I still kinda hate them for never giving me a refund. This dress is ridiculously cute on you!!!!

  • drivebyknitting January 6, 2016 at 11:52 am

    Awww, I love this dress but eShakti stole that image from Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden Coloring book. I don’t think I can give my money to them. https://www.google.com/search?q=secret+garden+peacock&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjOl4i1j5XKAhVGzz4KHfEYA0kQ_AUIBygB&biw=1228&bih=1009

    But you look great in the dress!

    • fatgirlflow January 6, 2016 at 3:05 pm

      They do look alike!!!! I of course do not know the Author of the book personally, but very often fabric creators actually pay illustrators for the rights to use their designs. I hope that it was not stolen and was properly paid for.

      • drivebyknitting January 6, 2016 at 10:07 pm

        I hope she did too. I tweeted it to her just in case.

  • Anika January 6, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    Ahhh nooooo… the do not ship to germany …. this dress looks so great on you!! They have really nice stuff…so maybe its for the better, they do not ship here, because…. pooof…there would go my money 😀

    • fatgirlflow January 6, 2016 at 3:02 pm

      hahaha! I have that problem with them, so consider yourself saved 😛

      • Anika January 8, 2016 at 8:08 pm

        ok but i am sad about it a little 🙂

        • fatgirlflow January 9, 2016 at 6:56 am

          Anika, I’m not sure if it will make any difference but you MIGHT be able to find Eshakti shipping to Germany via Amazon.com???

  • Olivia January 6, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    Question!!! What size do you order there?

  • Noelle January 8, 2016 at 10:33 pm

    Wow, that dress looks incredible on you! That customization really pays off because it looks like it was made for you.

    How wide is the calf on that boot? I have such a hard time finding good fitting boots. My calf is 20′ but I wear a 91/2 sometimes 10 shoe. None of the boots on SimpleBe have the calf measurements. So I was just wondering if you could give me that one. Thank you in advance I really wish Eshakti was in my price range. That dress looks amazing on you!! Have a wonderful day!!

    I am a big huge eshakti fan. I have six dresses, a trench coat, and now this dress is on the way to me thanks to you. With a sweetheart neckline, cap sleeves and midi length. Thanks for featuring it- it’s gorgeous. I am also a Dia girl thanks to your recommendation!!!

    • fatgirlflow January 13, 2016 at 6:46 am

      aw Andrea that’s so so cool!!!!!! If you post any pics of yourself in the dress please please tag me in them!!!! <3 <3 <3

  • Rachel January 15, 2016 at 4:53 am

    Man, I’d just really like to know how all the fatshion bloggers can afford dresses like these. And…actually own several of them. I can barely justify spending the money for ONE of them. I’m constantly adding stuff to my wishlists to buy when I can splurge but then they all sell out because apparently every fat girl is freaking rich and buys them all before I can ever even dream of owning them. So disappointing.

    • fatgirlflow January 15, 2016 at 5:30 am

      Hey Rachel,
      A lot of bloggers (myself included) get stuff sent to us for free. I always mention when I’ve been given something for free, thought some people don’t. I think you make a good point, that fashion should be more accessible for people. It’s something I’m working toward on my blog. I would like to start showing people more affordable options. If there’s any other kinds of improvements you’d like to see, please feel free to let me know!

  • Keri-Ann January 17, 2016 at 5:00 pm

    I LOVE this dress! Just watched your haul last night and HAD to get it! I also had a $40 coupon and today’s site is 25% 1 item…so it’s only $50 and SO worth it! I have two other pieces from eshakti that I like. 🙂 I’d love to buy more from them, but all my extra $$ goes to torrid, lol.

    • fatgirlflow January 17, 2016 at 8:52 pm

      oh that’s so wonderful!!!! Please please pleeeease tag me in any photos of you in it!!!! <3

  • Heather C! January 18, 2016 at 4:52 pm

    I’m curious – what do you use for undergarments? I have wicked big thighs, and I lloovveee to wear dresses, but the chafing KILLS me – by the end of the day, I have huge, red, sore welts!! Sometimes I try to wear shorts underneath, but it’s not too cute with dresses that are cut a bit shorter. Any advice?

    • fatgirlflow January 18, 2016 at 5:31 pm

      I actually swipe some deodorant between my thighs when I’m wearing dresses!!! I carry a thing of it around in my purse too. Usually dove deodorant. It helps your legs glide smoothly so that they don’t chafe! <3

  • Cara Berlin January 26, 2016 at 4:04 am

    So they sold out of this dress before I got up the courage to try eShakti for the first time! But I just ordered 5 dresses for less than $200 (including shipping!)! I’m so nervous though because buying online is always such a crap shoot. Everyone sizes differently, and even when you go by the size chart, things can go very wrong. Send me some good fatshion ju-ju!

    • fatgirlflow January 26, 2016 at 8:37 pm

      I’M SENDING YOU SO MANY GOOD FASHION VIBES!!!! recently E-shakti released a “it will fit!” kind of guarantee. It used to be when you got something customized they couldn’t take it back but now they assure you that they will get the fit right for you, which is amazing. I am crossing my fingers that everything fits perfectly the first time!!!! tag me in any pics youpost on social media of you wearing the dresses! I’d love to see!!!!! <3

      • Cara Berlin February 3, 2016 at 12:37 am

        Thanks! I’ll let you know what happens!

  • laila February 24, 2016 at 7:50 pm

    i have to say I’m a HUGE eshakti fan. i have several pieces from them and my trick has usually been to order specific things that have a greater chance of working on my body shape. I always look for the smocking details (i actually wish they’d add that as a customize option) or stretchy fabrics (although be forewarned their knits are medium-heavy weight, not super cool for hot summer days). i’m surprised to hear about people having issues with getting a credit or refund, i’ve only had to do it twice but both times i found their customer service to be top knotch.

  • Rachel September 30, 2016 at 9:59 am

    The fact that you can customize these dresses with such ease is awesome. It really makes it easier for you to find a dress you will love! Thanks for sharing this!
