I've been MIA for a few weeks but I swear I'm doing purposeful stuff. I'm wrapping up this season at the Mets and after much contemplation decided to decline on the opportunity to work the US Open. I have re-started my YouTube channel and believe it or no there is actually content up there worth watching! You can check that out here.
On to the good stuff!
I stumbled upon SheIn through a LADIES only Facebook group that I belong to. The owner posted a picture of a cute ass top and she told everyone that she bought it at SheIn. I previously thought SheIn was just another overseas website out to get your coins similar to Zaful. Which I will discuss them in my next video and to see my last experience with overseas sites click here.
They sent me this dress for free but you know I'm about to be completely honest with my entire experience. The shipping is unlike any other company from overseas, it was here in 4 days. I was shocked. Speaking to some other girls from the group, this is not just something they do for bloggers, apparently their shipping is always on point which is A++.
I found the sizing a little off but that's mostly expected when shopping boutiques from another country. As you all may know I am no longer a smaller woman, I err more to the thick side and usually I'm a US medium on top, US medium or large on the bottom depending on the cut and material. Sometimes, I can fit into an extra large. After checking the sizing, I ordered this dress in a large . When it arrived, the mid area was still a bit snug (check out the last picture on the bottom right). It only bunched up after moving around(I decided to pick up stuff off of the floor and then take pics please don't ask) and I did need help to zip it up because it's one of those hidden zipper things.
I can't lie, The dress is gorgeous, the eyelet material, the sheer parts just everything was on point and EXACTLY as pictured on the website which was a major plus. It was a little shorter on me than pictured which was expected because I am a little thicker therefore knee length stuff tends to be shorter than that on me.
It's also totally appropriate for work minimal skin is showing and basically everything is covered. It's extremely lightweight, I've worn this dress twice and both in dead NYC humid ass heat and I felt cool. Another thing I wanted to note about this dress. Usually when I wear white on NYC subways I get off looking beige, this material didn't hold dirt at all and I didn't have to use bleach when I washed it because it wasn't soil. I really despise using bleach so that was another thumbs up on my list. I have a SheIn wishlist and will be doing a review soon on their sister site MakeMeChic. So comment below and tell me if you've ever ordered from them or will you in the future.
