Girls night out with eShakti

With the warmer weather finally arriving, women everywhere are shucking off their leggings, boots and sweaters for light, springy dresses filled with color, volume and pattern.  I've been eagerly awaiting some decent weather so I could wear out my new spring dress c/o online clothing store, eShakti.

If you like vintage, florals, or retailers like ModCloth, then you will love eShakti's wide selection of dresses, blouses, skirts, and wedding wear - all at very affordable prices.  The really special thing about this online store though is that you can customize each purchase any way you want!  

I've never bought custom-made clothing before, let alone bought custom-made clothing online, so when I was offered the chance to try out the eShakti service, I wasn't sure what to expect.  After perusing the spring dress section, I finally settled on a green number with a braided waist and A-line skirt.  

Once I selected the dress, I was shown the various options I could choose to customize my purchase:

Besides the dress length (I chose knee-length) and neckline (I chose the wide scoop), you can also select whether you want your dress to have pockets, which of course I did! I LOVED how all the options allow you to really make each dress your own, so that even if you and a friend bought the same one, you could make each really unique to you.  Shipping was a breeze with the dress arriving within 2 short weeks all the way from India no less, and the dress quality is a durable, soft cotton.  The color was also true to the photos as was the sizing.

Now to the night out.  My dress was a perfect mix of fancy and casual, which was ideal for a Friday night out eating and strolling the shops with girlfriends.  On this particular night, we had some wonderful Japanese ramen at Santouka.  If you ever come to have ramen in Vancouver, then a stop at Santouka is a must - the special pork here literally melts in your mouth and the food is beautifully presented, which is difficult for what essentially is wet noodles in soup.

After all that salty goodness, we were all craving something sweet, so we finished it off with warm Japanese-style crepes and outfit photos!
