Have you looked at a product and wondered if it was worth buying or even placing into your closet let alone be a part of your distinctive wardrobe? I know I have. I would look at a top or a cardigan online over and over and debate and wonder-Should I? Would it fit right? Is it worth the money? How many times can I use it? Is it versatile?

I am a practical shopper. I have a small budget to work with and I am anti-clutter so I don't want to have things around just to have things but rather have a use for them. So when I am looking at what to add to my wardrobe I have to ask myself those questions. I also ask myself if the item is non-vintage, can it give a vintagey feel to my outfit? Can I pair up that skirt with a vintage blouse and make it work?

I am here to tell you that the skirts I purchased from eShakti have been all that for me and more! I purchased a few skirt last spring and summer and I am going to share with you how I paired them up with vintage blouses and accessories and made them work towards my vintage tastes.

The first skirt is a navy poplin skirt very similar to this one HERE although it is no longer available online. Let me say that I love that many of their skirts are cotton, I am a big fan of cotton. I also love, love, love that their skirts (and dresses) have pockets! I mean it is rare to find a skirt with a pocket so right away that really gave it a vintage feel.

I paired this navy skirt with a 1960's blue blouse, pinned my hair back up a bit and done! 


The second skirt I want to share with you is their button front poplin skirt in black that they still have available online HERE. I like adding solids to my wardrobe because they can be mixed and matched easier than if they were all patterns. eShakti offers both patterned skirts and solids.


I was able to create more of a 40s/50s look with this skirt. I paired it with a 1950's blouse and cardigan from Old Navy as well as a vintage purse and 1940's hat. This skirt is one of my favorites. It is just very flattering to my figure and well nothing beats an article of clothing being both comfortable and flattering in my book.

I cannot say anything negative about eShakti skirts. I just love the fabrics, how well they are lined, the pockets (which you can ask to have no pockets if you want), and the colors. If you are interested in acquiring separates for your vintage/vintagey wardrobe I really think that eShakti is a wonderful place for finding really pretty skirts that will fit well and look amazing. I cannot wait to try out their dresses, I have heard nothing but good things about them. Swing on by eShakti because they are having a Spring Sale ending soon!

  2. You have to keep me in mind when you are shopping for 50s blouses. I love these blouses you found! I have such a hard time finding the right blouse. These skirts are lovely and if I had to pick one, I'd say the navy skirt looks so wonderful. You honestly look so beautiful in these eshakti skirts and blouses.

  3. Really, really lovely outfits both!!! I've personally not had anywhere near as a positive an experience with eShatki myself (multiple negative ones, truth be told), but thankfully the last was the best to date and I'm not opposed to working with, or buying from, them again. I'd probably opt for separates if I did, because I've just had such bad luck with their dresses (too big, too small, too short in the hem, etc, even though I specified the exact measurements that I wanted and expected them to be, plus we get hit with mega important and courier broker fees from DHL, which is the courier that they use to ship their orders to Canada, so that's another strike against them in my books unfortunately).

    *PS* I've posted about some of my eShakti experiences in the past if you ever want to read about what happened.

  4. Fantastic outfits, and I agree with Joanna that the blouses are just lovely. I've heard a variety of things about eShatki, and although the skirts are very cute, I'd probably make them instead of buying! I do love that they have pockets, though, I'll have to keep that in mind.
