Velvet dresses didn´t get me as excited as the rest of the fashion crowd when they came out and I wasn´t into them right away. I first thought that is such a grandma material and not flattering at all but I am sure open to be taught a better one. And I was. My first velvet piece was a gorgeous blush t-shirt I have worn so many times the last winter and spring that I can not count it. So the styling of more velvet pieces followed. I got a gold studded blazer jacket, a burnt orange skirt and this beautiful dark blue midi dress. I ordered it from SheIn and it came in time and was made of good quality and great color. Definitely gonna wear this on one of the Holidays.
I paired it with all gold accessoires and a nude faux fur jacket but it would be also really pretty if paired with silver heels and accessoires.
So let´s move on to the next topic I get several question about. Ordering pieces from the SheIn online shop. I know some of you don´t trust the shop or have read lots of bad comments or reviews but I have to say (and this post is in no way sponsored, just wanted to share my experience with you) I have never gotten one bad piece where I thought this has to go into the trash can right away. I never had a lost or forgotten order and customer service is really fast.
How is the quality? // It depends on what you get but I have to say mostly good. I really never had such a bad piece I couldn´t wear. The skirt and dresses I ordered had been lined so far. There was never a seam that opened right away or was already open. Also the sequins on differnt items are sewed on very well.
How are the prices? // I think they range from very affordable (you could say cheap as well but I really don´t like the negativity of the word) to normal. You cant get a blouse from 8 to 15 € and coats from 20 to 60 €. They also offer daily flash sales including a wide range of products and almost always discount codes to save money.
How long takes shipping? // It depends on the season. They are really busy around every holiday so be sure to place your order early
How is sizing? // Sizing can be really tricky so I wouldn´t give to much of the size comparisons they have. ALWAYS meassure. I do this everytime (had a piece that was way too small on my first order) and I have never had one that didn´t fit again. Be sure that you don´t meassure to tight. One or two centimetres don´t impair the fight or the silhouette but it can give you a little more freedom of movement.
How can I pay? // So this one is the easiest question of all. You can pay with any credit card and if you don´t have one you can pay through Paypal but you always have to pay upfront.
What else do they offer? // You can get rewards in form of points by confirming the arrival of the package and also by uploading and posting a styled picture with one of your bought articles and I think you also get points by reviewing pieces. I hope this helps a little to get rid of your concerns about bad comments. If you are still not sure about it why not order one simple piece and see if you like it.
Here are some of the pieces I got lately and loved a lot:
