Green Bubble Gingham

We're so excited to announce our first ever Mod Circus collaboration! We were contacted by eShakti, a company with made-to-order sizing and customizations, to see if we'd be interested in reviewing their clothing. In a nutshell: we were super duper impressed.

They have a lot of fun retro patterns and styles, so I really had a hard time narrowing down to the one dress I wanted. This green gingham dress, reminiscent of a 1950s picnic, caught my eye, and when I saw the bubbled gingham texture detail, I knew this was the one. You can see Jodi's adorable pick here.

Not only do they customize clothing exactly to your measurements, but you can add any type of sleeve, neckline, and many other customizations so your clothes are the most flattering for your body. Another feature they have is pockets in nearly every dress! I mean, you can get it customized to remove pockets, but why on earth would you do that? Their sizing chart actually aligned perfectly with my measurements (which is not always the case!), but I chose customization of the length to fall right above the knee (typically their short dresses run below the knee), and the length was perfect.

Maybe because the whole situation seemed almost too good to be true, we went in with fairly low expectations, but I was really blown away by the quality of the dress. It fits like a glove and the material is thick and substantial. We've also read reviews about their orders taking a long time to arrive. However, if the dresses are customized to fit you, it makes sense they may not arrive later that week. We were very impressed by how quickly ours arrived.


I'd like to state for the record that we were prepared to be completely honest about our experiences, and were relieved to be able to tell such a success story. I'm already narrowing down what my next purchase from them will be! The only small issue I wanted to point out with my dress was a slight pulling on the back (you can see below) where the back V met. Maybe this should bother me more, but it really doesn't.

OK, now here's the really exciting part: through June 4th, you can use the promo code "modcircus" for 10% OFF your eShakti order. It can be combined with other coupons and gift cards and can be used multiple times within this period. Happy shopping!

  1. I've never heard of eShakti, but I feel like I should check it out. The dress looks like it fits well and I love the retro style. I think the wedges make the outfit. Are those still available on Seychelles? -Bekah

    1. We hadn't either, but we're so glad we did! I really loved their selection of retro-inspired dresses.

      These are some of my favorite wedges (I wore them for my wedding reception!), but I got them the year before last, so unfortunately they're no longer on the Seychelles website. There might be a small chance another retailer would still carry them, though. Good luck!

  2. Love the whole outfit, but especially the shoes. So cute!

    1. Thanks so much, Ali! Definitely one of my favorite pairs of shoes.
