Hi! So, I have two weddings to attend in June, and zero dresses, and a small budget — maybe $150-200 max. I’ve been limiting myself to eShakti - my bottom half is a 22 and my top half is an 18, so I need the customization aspect. I’m still totally overwhelmed though. Ideally, I need to just find one dress that I can change up. Wedding #1: old bar friend, super drinking party wedding. Wedding #2: my dad is getting remarried (this is the intimidating one), reception at a local art gallery. HELP.
Ok. So there are some options on eshakti, but since you’ve already explored there, I thought I’d give you options elsewhere. If you have specific eShakti dresses you want me to style for you - send them my way!
I picked the dress on the left because it’s the style of dress that will fit your bottom half even if your bottom half is many sizes larger than your top half. It’s a very beautiful dress that I think can work a few ways. I’ve styled it here with classic accessories
The dress on the right is probably out of your comfort zone, however I think it can be styled a few different ways to make it more trendy or more classic. Here it is styled more trendy. It’s also a shape that can be tailored very easily to different measurements. You could also easily turn this into a dress you can wear on dates by pairing it with a cool jacket (like a structured leather jacket) and tights and boots!
