I am fortunate to get a fashion item from eShakti. If you are like me and didn't know about eShakti, here's their philosophy.

"It is not enough that clothes look good on mannequins. They need to look good on you - this is our philosophy. We make clothes just for you, not to just fit well, but also to have the neckline, sleeve and length work for you. We also make every garment to your exact height. At eShakti, you can, of course, also buy clothes as shown in the standard sizes from 0-36W - or you can have them customized to your specific size with your selection of neckline, sleeve and length. It is your choice and it is easy, fast and affordable."

I got this from their website. They said it better than I ever could! Here's the item I choose.

Thoughts: From the list of clothes we can choose, I knew this was my style. I didn't have to think twice.
Unfortunately, I cannot find it on the website. My guess is it's sold out. I took this picture from my email. I will base my review on the two other designs with the same style.
Here's the first design, Floral Print Smocked Chiffon Blouse. It looks like the same model wearing the same pants.
Here's the second design, Polka Dot Print Smocked Chiffon Blouse. Again, the same model with the same pants.
Here's a closer look at the packaging. Honestly when I received it, I thought it was pizza. It's in the same square shape as a pizza box. I think it's pretty cute!
Here's a closer look at the neck area. The neck and chest area, as well as, top of the back (I didn't take a picture of) is stretchable. It's the same fabric as the remaining part of the shirt but they sewn it to stretch. It reminds me of dresses and skirts. Also, camera lighten the color of the shirt.
Here's a closer look at the button, button hole, and the drawstring. The button hole and the drawstring are made from the fabric. Also, you can see a closer look at the stretchable area. Also, this is true to color! The shirt is navy blue not the light blue they show on the model.
Here's a closer look at the sleeves with the elastic cuffs.
I honestly thought I would only get the shirt. I was shocked to receive a navy tank for the see-through shirt. I consider it as a bonus.
Here's a closer look at the strap of the tank. You can adjust the straps to fit your shoulders.
It comes with two additional buttons.
Here's how the shirt looks on me. Unfortunately, the flash on the mirror didn't help and please excuse the background. My room is in a cleaning process. I wore it the same way as the model except in dark colored jeans not black.
Here's at another angle of the shirt. Again, the flash lighten the color of the shirt and I'm actually wearing a black tank top not the tank it came with.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all even before getting my shirt, I had to order online. Honestly, I didn't understand why this website was different until I ordered. It's easy to maneuver, straight forward, and a genius idea. You get to choose your own design with the style. What I mean is you get to choose the length of the shirt and sleeve. It could be a complete different style than what I have chosen. It's all up to the individual. I actually like the style the model was wearing and I went with that. You could also give your measurements and height. I'm in-between two sizes. To be safe, I went with the bigger size. I definitely did not want the same length as the model. It'll look like a pajama on me. For that reason, I gave my height. Secondly, it came as described on the website. The style and design was the same. The only difference is the color. It's lighter on the website than it is in person. I wish I could see the description of the one I choose. I wonder if it said navy and I didn't pay attention. Anything is possible with me. With that said, the shirt is well-made. I did have trouble unbuttoning and buttoning. The button hole is really tight and it took some effort to unbutton. I'm hoping after several times of unbuttoning and buttoning, it'll loosen a bit to make it easier. Third, I did say the navy tank was a bonus. I wasn't expecting it. I wish they made the tank out of a stretchable material. It's made out of the same material as the shirt. It wasn't tight on me but it took effort to take it off. While taking it off, I broke one of the plastic circle on the shoulder. Thankfully, I like the shirt with the stretchable tank tops I own. Lastly, it's my style. I can see myself wear this often. You can wear it casually but I see it more semi-casual to dress up. Not only that, the styles are unique. I have never seen this style in any stores and online. I highly recommend checking them out. The clothes are unique and it fits to your proportion.

* Easy, straight-forward website.
* Genius concept.
* You can get multiple of designs from the same style; different length, short to long sleeves, etc.
* Close to the description on the website.
* Well-made.
* Sewn well.
* Detailed; stretchable neck, chest, top of back, elastic cup, drawstring, etc.
* It came with a tank.
* Adjustable shoulder strap tank.
* Fashionable.
* Semi-casual to dress up.
* Unique style that you cannot find anywhere else.

* Cannot find in stores.
* Darker in person than the website.
* The button hole is slightly tighten; hard to unbutton/button.
* Tank isn't stretchable.

Would repurchase: Yes.
