SheIn First Impressions

Today I am back again with another fashion post from website SheIn, which describe themselves as leading online store boasting of high quality clothes & fashion accessories since 2008. To be honest I never heard of the website until I was contacted by the team and I was a bit weary at first with what exactly I would receive considering the super low prices. I spent ages browsing through the website and ended up choosing a dress that had good reviews. If there is one thing I know about these kind of clothing sites is that reviews are definitely there to be read and taken into consideration when choosing your outfit. So as you can see I opted for the Black Long Sleeve Embroidered Embellishments Broderie Dress* and I am here to share my first impressions with you...

The one thing I was worried about the most when it came to receiving my package is that the quality would be awful. For the low price of $20.99 you just don't know what to expect, especially considering it was my first time trying out a website like this. After a three week wait I finally received my package and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. Material felt great and it looked identical to the photos online. But the one problem I spotted as soon as I unwrapped the dress out of it's packaging was that sizing was all wrong. I opted for size M as I tend to usually fit into clothes between a size 10/12 so I figured M would be a safe bet, but unfortunately it just looks super baggy on me and not in the flattering kind of way I might like. It's not just baggy around the waist which I could deal with by adding a belt, but it's also baggy around the neck area and sleeves, so I'm just not sure I will be able to make it work for me.

Sizing is usually a problem for me when ordering online as you can never know exactly how they will fit, so it's usually one of the main reasons why I rarely shop online. However now that I have introduced fashion into my blog, I will really have to get better on working out my right sizing. It's such a shame that this dress hasn't been a perfect fit because I loved the design and I had already planned in my head to wear it with tights & high knee boots. I guess I will be aware of it for the next time. So overall despite my sizing issues would I recommend the website? In short yes I would, because once you do your research & pay close attention to the reviews you can really find yourself a few bargains. Just be prepared to wait a good 3/4 weeks for delivery as that is usually the norm with these kind of clothing sites, and of course be aware of the sizing (don't make my mistake).

What do you think of the dress I picked out? Have you ever tried this website? I'd love to hear your thoughts...
