“Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you.” -Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld has said it all in this beautiful quote. It is beyond true, and I hope you all know that. We are really all the same, and there is nothing that really makes us that different. Karl has a good way of saying it and making it known. I love all fashion- inexpensive or extremely expensive. There is always something designed the same way that is in my budget, and this beautiful white trench happens to fall right into that category.
This beautiful white elegant trench coat that was customized just for me from eShakti is a beauty. What a fantastic company to collaborate with. They have the option of just buying the standard size, or you can customize the garment with your measurements. The size chart ranges from x-small to plus sizes. Which I think is great, because no matter your size you must feel confident and love what you are wearing. I know that eShakti wants the women wearing there clothing to feel nothing more than 100% confident and I’m so happy I went with customizing this beautiful piece.
The customizing process is so easy, and they do give you very good directions for every measurement. Kind of makes you feel like you are the designer… well, maybe that’s just me, because lately I miss designing clothes. I need to start doing again ASAP. Now let me not get off track: first, I took all my measurements, then I looked at the different options for the hem length of the jacket and the length of the sleeves. There was even an option to change the style of the collar, which I thought was so cool. The only thing I ended up changing was the hem length. I am not very tall so right above the neck was the perfect length. To add to how cute this jacket is and how amazing it was to work with this company, I just wanted to point out some awesome design details. I love the princess seams on the upper part of the bodice of the coat. They really give it that cute shape and design aesthetic. The pleats on the back of the jacket really give it some body and the cream buttons on the sleeves and down the center front really complete the coat.
This trench coat fits me like a glove. I’m so happy I went with the customized option. They said it would take about 2-4 weeks for me to receive the coat. It actually only took them 2 and a half weeks to create it from scratch and have it delievered. I was shocked! I have never had anything customized get to me so fast.
To wear this elegant white makes an outfit look phenomenal. Dressing it up with a pair of heels is just the right mix. I’m happy to say that I have a little gift for you guys. Anyone who uses my special promo code “naturallyfarout” will receive 10% OFF
