Happy Wednesday guys! Omg I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve written a blog post and talked to you all! I was sick as a dog and am finally feeling better! I want to thank all of you that wished me well. 🙂  On to today’s post! I recently put in an order on Shein and if you’re like me you are skeptical about the website.  (Or I was).  Today’s post will be all about my experience with Shein and a review on the clothing.  I will also be answering some questions that I received from you on Instagram! Let’s jump right into the post!

To start if you don’t know what or who Shein is then let’s start there.  Shein (formally Sheinside) is an affordable fashion website.  You’ve probably noticed a ton of bloggers/youtubers shopping from Shein.  You can check out the website here.  I recently ordered my very first order which included 10 items and I spend 100 bucks! Not lying here at all guys! It was such a good deal and I received some great items! Now let’s jump into the questions because I know it might seem too good to be true. shein, shein top, shein clothes, outfit, cute clothes for summer, summer 2017 outfit

Question 1: What’s the quality like?

This was probably the most asked question.  As it should be because if you are going to spend money you want to get quality items right?  Well I’m going to be honest guys.  This isn’t like buying a t-shirt at Nordstrom or J.Crew.  It’s not the highest of quality but that doesn’t mean it’s a crappy quality that it will be falling apart.  I’ve worn all but two of the pieces I ordered which I will be sharing on this post. 🙂cute tops for summer, cute tops for spring, shein top, outfit for summer, outfit for spring, easy outfits for summer, cute outfits for summer, summer 2017 outfits

Question 2: Normal Size or Size up?

Another very popular question was about sizing.  This can be a little tricky because some of the pieces are larger and some are smaller.  I would say read the measurements and check out any reviews on the website for that product and images.  This is what ultimately helped me make a decision.  For some of my items I ordered my size and for other’s I went up a size.shein top, cute outfits, outfits for summer, summer 2017 outfits, cute outfits for summer

Question 3: How long does shipping take?

I don’t think I can give an honest response on this because whenever I ordered they were doing a warehouse change.  It made my shipment take about a week longer than expected but for reference I ordered on May 8th and I received it May 25th .shein, shein review, summer outfits, outfit, spring outfit

Question 4: Is it legit?

Yes, it is legit guys! I know it seems a little skeptical and it does ship from China so it does take a while and the prices are cheaper but it’s legit!

Overall experience

Great! I got a lot of great pieces and all of them luckily worked for me! I loved getting 10 items for 10 dollars each I mean when else does that happen!? The shipping was a littler longer than I wanted but I’m so glad that I waited for everything.

I hope I was able to answer any questions that you guys had and I hope you get the chance to shop! If you do let me know about your experience with Shein and anything that you would recommend!

XOXO,

 

Silvia M.

    Loved reading about your experience – mine was the opposite and I’ll be sharing about it on my blog soon, haha. It took 3 weeks to get here and one of the items started unthreading in the armpit right when I put it on – such a bummer!!

    I’m thinking about sharing a Shein review soon too! I started shopping with them last year and now buy so much stuff from there, as well as work with them on my blog. I’m so impressed with the quality to price ratio! Love what you got from them!

    I just ordered my first dress from Shein so I’m really excited for it to come in! I love the pieces that you chose, especially the white top with blue sleeves. Thanks for this review! 🙂

    I love the swimsuits I’ve ordered from Shein! It’s definitely one of my go-to online stores for trendy pieces that I want to try before making a bigger investment.

    These pieces are so cute! I recently ordered some stuff from Romwe and it arrived in a SheIn box so I’m guessing they are the same company? The jeans I ordered were insanely small even though I got a size bigger, which stinks. But the tops I got were the perfect fit and I love them! Great review. Thanks for answering those questions.

    I’ve always been hesitant to order from this site because I’ve read some sketchy reviews. It was refreshing to see that you had a good experience— and received some cute pieces! Thanks for sharing this insight!

    So happy you had a great experience with Shein! I ordered one thing from them and it took WEEKS to get here. But, maybe I ought to give them another chance. There’s so many cute pieces!

      They do took a while to get to you but I didn’t mind it because it’s so inexpensive.

    Oh I really love the shirt in your last picture! Those sleeves are really unique. I like that they aren’t took long. I’ve never actually heard of this website but I’m keen to check it out now that I’ve seen your pieces. Would you say they are around Forever21 quality? What other brand or store would you compare the quality too? I love your photos, by the way!

    I love shein!! I’ve worked with them a few times and each time the products are great (you just have to make sure you super-check the size charts lol because I have ended up with a couple of items where the long sleeves don’t go past my elbows)x

    I’m so jealous that your order was relatively quick! I ordered a package from there and received it a month in a half later. :/
