Finally! I’ve had so many questions about SHEIN and requests to review it, and I’ve finally done it. Honestly, before now I haven’t been into the whole SHEIN thing. I love a good deal as much as the next girl, but there was just something that felt weird to me about ordering from there. I mean, how are the prices SO low? It has to be too good to be true, right? Not exactly.
I wasn’t expecting much when my package showed up on my doorstep. But, imagine my surprise when I open the package and tried on my haul.
Note : THIS POST CONTAINS JUST 2 PIECES FROM THE HAUL. More coming up in the next updates (so that you come back and help me increase my website visits).
I love summer dresses and you know that if you've been following me on social media. So, I got my hands on a pink and white striped dress that almost gave an illusion of a bandage dress! I've always been petite and super conscious to don bodycon dresses, but this pick from shein.com was something I just had to try! I guess I saw it on a lot of girls having the same body structure like mine so I ordered the piece for myself. However, when the package arrived, I forgot I had ordered this among 15 other products, and couldn't figure out for hours how to actually wear it, but my insta fam being the sweetest, saved me again...so you get to see these pictures below!
It's such a cute, off-shoulder dress that's high waist with a lettuce trim. It comes with a cut in the centre that parts your upper and lower body covering, with short sleeves. Also, the back is so flattering! But, the cutest part is undoubtedly is the knot (they give you a separate piece of fabric to add it in the centre of the upper part of the dress and tie it into a bow). The fabric is stretchable, and very comfortable to wear! You can choose to throw up this dress on a beach, a summer party, pool party or just a picnic.
I paired it up with minimal accessories, that included a pair of designer studs, a set of gold bracelets and nude heels; TBH, the dress in itself is a showstopper!
Apart from my personal take on the dress, I'd like to share some TIPS FOR SHOPPING AT SHEIN.
1.) ALLOW ENOUGH TIME FOR DELIVERY. According to their site, you will receive your order in 6-17 business days from the date that it is placed. I received most of my entire order in just 5 days, but according to some of my friends, it has taken upto 20 days as well, so be prepared, or just hope to get lucky!
2.) KNOW YOUR BODY. Know what looks good and what flatters your body type. Not only is this crucial when ordering anything online, but especially when weeding through the crazy amount of inventory they have.
3.) GO BY THE SIZING MEASUREMENTS, NOT JUST THE SIZE. Get out your measuring tape. It’ll help a ton to decide your correct size.
4.) Lastly, READ THE REVIEWS. Super helpful. Believe them.
