Happy Fri-YAY y’all! It is finally the weekend and I get to sleep in for 1 day and all the mamas said AMEN!
I love to online shop. It took me awhile to get to the place of online shopping. I used to be so scared because what if it didn’t fit right or look right on me or I got the wrong size, and don’t get me started on the hassle of having to return an item! After awhile though I felt like I got a good handle on how to shop online.
If you have done any sort of clothes shopping online or scrolled through Facebook I am sure you have come across ads for SheIn. My first thought when I went to their website was that it was too good to be true, I mean it comes from China. Can it be trusted?
Well, I just received my first order I few days ago and can honestly say I am very happy with the items quality and fit on me. I know it can be super intimidated to purchase from an overseas retailer like SheIn so here are a couple tips that I hope help you out the next time you come across something cute from their site.
READ THE REVIEWS
I can’t stress this enough. Before I ever buy anything from Shein, Amazon, or Asos I alway read the reviews. What helps me the most is searching for someone who reviewed that item with my same height and size to see what she had to say.
TAKE YOUR MEASUREMENTS
I know it sounds silly but this will help you a lot when ordering from overseas companies because their sizes are different, but if you go by your measurements you should be okay. When in doubt order a size bigger.
Shipping is tricky because it is coming from China. If you are shopping for an event I would definitely order a month in advance if ordering from SheIn. It can take anywhere from 2-3 weeks to get to you. After you order they do offer a tracking number and you can also purchase optional shipping insurance at a low cost.
I hope this took some of the fear away from you about shopping at SheIn because their prices are A-MA-ZING and I can usually find a dupe of the more expensive items there for a fraction of the price. As always to shop my photos click any of the images below!
