Professional Every Day Clothes

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

My closet is so full it could literally explode all my clothes any minute. I'm thinking like a closet volcano over here. Even with my brimming closet, I still have trouble finding clothes that fit my age and style. I'm one of those people who can't let their clothes go.

Since I graduated college, I have tried to get a small professional wardrobe going. A few months ago I was thinking about said professional wardrobe. I've tried to get professional clothes that I can wear anytime. You know, dress up the shirt when I have an interview or important meeting, dress it down with jeans and a leather jacket when I'm going out with friends. That's the best kind of professional clothes in my opinion.

Enter eShakti. I was given the opportunity to choose an article of clothing to review. Since I had been looking for very versatile clothing, I chose the Pleat Neck Ponte Knit Tee, a nice boat neck shirt with elbow length sleeves.

eShakti is known for their ability to customize clothing, either by style (sleeve length, shirt length, ect) or by custom fit. I've never ordered clothes from websites before because my body size always falls right in the middle of two sizes. Do I order the smaller size and have it be to tight when it finally arrives or if I go with the bigger size will it swallow me whole?

Anyway, the purpose of that tangent was to explain that I ordered my shirt as a custom fit so my mind could rest easy that it would fit when it got here. And it did fit really nicely.

I was very surprised with the shirt. I'm not saying that I was expecting crappy material or anything, but my shirt is made from rayon, nylon and spandex so I wasn't sure what to expect. It is what I would call a "thick" shirt. The material feels very thick but also breathable and movable. It feels expensive.

Okay, so let me be real with y'all for a moment. I was given the opportunity to choose my clothing for free in exchange for my honest opinion. So far I've given you my honest opinion of my shirt I received. But I wanted to review a bit about the behind the scenes stuff as well.

I did have a bit of trouble picking out my item due to the availability of material. I'm not sure if that would be a big deal if you were actually buying, or if that was just a blogger product review problem.

After I correctly put in all of my information, it took 14 calendar days to receive my shirt. The website says that it will take 18 calendar days for the shirt to arrive after placing your order, so I was happy about that.

Your clothing is delivered through DHL. One small thing that could be a problem is that they do require a signature for your package. So if you are not home at the time of delivery, it could take an extra day to get your package.

My shirt came in folded nicely in a clear plastic bag. That plastic bag was placed inside a thin brown box which was placed inside of the DHL bag to ship. I didn't have any wrinkles in the shirt upon arrival. Also, I checked the tag when I got my shirt. It is machine washable (which the website notes), so that is a major plus!
