As you all know, I’m a huge fan of custom dresses. My first foray into custom dresses was when I ordered from eShakti a few months ago. I’m super excited to share my first collaboration that offers readers a special Huntress coupon for eShakti!

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I cannot say it enough, tailoring really is everything when it comes to buying clothes off a rack. If you can do your own basic tailoring, then you can save a ton of money and just find clothes anywhere! If you want to save yourself the time and/or don’t know how to tailor, buying a custom piece is a really great option. I actually recently purchased a custom maxi dress from eShakti in order to ensure the right length and fit. Once I get it, I will feature it here! For you DIY’ers out there, my DIY Pinterest board has some links to tutorials for basic alterations. 
eShakti can be found via the following modalities: their website, Facebook, and Pinterest
2) I’ve really tried to up my game and style dresses as skirts more regularly, as it gives you two outfits instead of one.As you can see from the photo below, this is actually a dress, but style for this post as a skirt. I’m still working on perfecting this type of styling, but I definitely recommend you give it a try. The easiest way to style a dress as a skirt is by layering a top over your dress and belting it to re-define the waist.
