Today I’m going to do a little Friday review for you guys, and I’m pretty excited about this one… so hold on to your socks! When I read reviews [about clothes] I want to know three things, that’s all. These three things are:
- Are the clothes made cheap (meaning can I wear them more than twice without them tearing, unraveling, not surviving the wash? Are they see through, is the material a decent quality?)
- The Fit, are the clothes TTS (true to size)??
- Shipment time!!!!
I’ll just go ahead and start you all on my SheIn journey…
For the longest time I have wanted to order from this online store by the name of SheIn. It seemed like every time I turned around I saw more and more people purchasing items from there, cute items! I hate not knowing my specific size in a store or brand and I feel like once you purchase something online (especially less expensive clothing) the harder it is to return for full price or return at all, call me crazy (my luck is the worst when it comes to returns)!! However, I did a little research, read reviews and found out that this particular store is a legitimate clothing store, with better quality clothing than expected. You see all of these pop-up shops with cheap products and the first thought that comes to mind is ‘cheap price for cheap one time wear clothing’. From my experience, though, the clothes look great… it almost reminds me of a mesh up between H&M, Gap, Francesca’s and Target (idk, does that make sense??). So what you buy maybe isn’t a timeless piece that will last a lifetime, but I do think it will last the trend season and can be worn multiple times. With that being said, I only purchased four items, three tops and a dress, so your experience may be completely different from mine and if it is, I apologize. I’m sure it depends on what your purchase is, I probably wouldn’t buy a bathing suit (bathing suits are just something you can’t skimp on!) But if you’ve wanted to try out this particular online shop and you’re looking for a good deal, it gets my stamp of approval.
Sizing, this for me was the most difficult part of the entire process. I knew going in that I might be purchasing junk and I knew it might take forever and a day to get to me, sizing however, was the hard part. Why can’t stores/brands make every size the same worldwide? I don’t get it and I’ll probably never understand it. I swear in one store I’ll be a size 0 and in the next store I’ll be a size 6, what in the world?! So online ordering can be a nightmare and honestly not even worth the process (lucky for you all I really wanted to order from this store and lucky for me there were helpful reviews for me). I’ll just let you all know what I did, ordered my true size, ha! I ordered small tops and I most always buy smalls, so there ya go!
With all of that being said, I also questioned the shipment time (of course), so for all of you wondering… how long will my shipment take?? From my personal experience it took 8 business days. The website does state that it can take up to 30 days for you to receive your delivery, so just be aware! If you need something next day, I’m not sure that it will happen. My shipment came by my postal mail service, so watch for the mailman!
Hope this helps anyone looking to purchase from SheIn and if you all know of other shops like this one that you’ve had good experiences with, please let me know! I would love to try them out!
Have an amazing weekend guys and thank you so much for stopping by!!
