So I have been hearing about this brand and website for a while now but I am always skeptical of online shopping sizing when I have never tried the clothes and when it is very obviously not US sizing... because lets be real... a US "large" compared to some off shore "large" is laughable, as in my almost 5 year old could wear it, not me. #struggleisreal
Okay, so enter Shein. The clothes are pretty darn cute and at prices that are almost unbelievable, especially when they are on sale, which they have often! So I took the plunge and ordered lots of various items in different sizes and was pleasantly surprised!! Not only are the clothes cute, but the tees are so soft and comfy, a must have in my book!! To top it all off, I was able to shop some sale items and scored some tees for $7 and earrings from $3-$4, say whaaaattttt!?!?!
If this wasn't amazing enough, they have a HUGE selection of really cute PLUS SIZE clothes, can I get an amen?! Plus, a lot of their popular styles come in standard sizes AND plus sizes, which often companies don't so this is refreshing. Oh, and they have mens and kids clothes too!! Seriously this is a utopia of cute and affordable clothes. The only big FYI that I want to give you is that sizing does run small, so beware, and probably size up one size. For tops that have stretch, like tees, I sized up once and was happy with the fit. For firmer non-stretch fabrics, I sized up twice because I don't want to be walking around lookin' like a busted can of bisciuts, mmmm kay.
Here are a few of my absolute FAVORITE must have items out of everything I have ordered so far, and more is on the way #treatyoself
First up... Oh hello there super cute lip tee that comes in standard size ($9) AND plus ($11)! Absolutely love this cute top and it is a MUST for all my LipSense ladies or anyone that likes a seriously killer graphic print tee.
Next up, MATCHING lips earrings that are so friggin' cute!!! If you want to be matchy-matchy like me, these lips earrings are everything!! Plus they are only $4, seriously!!
Okay, next is probably my all time favorite top I have from Shein, the chevron fringe $13. This top is so fun and so cute I literally get compliments every time I wear it. Plus, its FRINGE and a literal party when you move. I can't help but do a happy shimmy dance every time I put this shirt on. It is a more fitted style so be sure to size up if you don't want it tight.
Onto another pair of earrings that I absolutely adore, marble pattern hoop earrings $3. These cuties are so fun and modern with the geometric design yet they are subtle enough that you could wear them with just about anything. They also come in white which in the pictures online look just okay but in person they are really pretty. I still think the black and tan ones are my faves and I will be wearing them a lot this summer!
Last but not least... CACTUS TEES!!! Yes, I am a typical Arizona girl and I have a love of all things saguaro, succulent and cacti... enter these absolutely adorable and crazy comfortable tees. I love a good relaxed fit tee already, then you put cute little saguaros on it and I am sold! Both of these tops fit loosely, which I like, and I sized up once (since their stuff runs small) and I was very happy with the fit of both!
In addition to all the fun pieces above, be sure to check their sale section!
Happy shopping & slay all day babes!!
