Metallic Sparkle

As someone who is used to dropping considerable cash at my tailors, eShakti is a great option for getting well-fitting clothing without having to pay a ton. Through their website, customers can tailor any item's design and fit using a series of built-in customization tools for only $7.50 extra.

I decided to customize the Bow Collar Boucle Jacket (unfortunately now out of stock) with 3/4 sleeves instead of full-length ones and I think it turned out really cute. The metallic thread interwoven throughout, which was hard to capture on camera, also adds a fun bit of extra sparkle.

Jacket: eShakti (c/o) / Dress: H&M / Shoes: Nine West / Bag: Kate Spade
Watch: Michael Kors (here) / Cuff: Soo Ihn Kim (here)


By the way, how cute is my new Kate Spade Bow Valley Rosa? I had been coveting this for ages and was lucky enough to receive it for Christmas!

  14. Ha ha, I feel your pain about spending a fortune at the tailor's. I have to shorten every single pair of pants I buy, most jacket sleeves and many skirts. That jacket is beautiful. I really should check out their website. LOVE your bag too! It's so pretty and lady-like!

  15. I keep hearing about this website! I hate spending big bucks at the tailor too, so this is definitely something i'd consider when buying coats and blazers. I'm particularly liking yours ;)
