You all know I love a good bargain. While I do like to invest in certain pieces, I tend to invest in handbags and shoes over clothing, since you can get more cost-per-wear out of them. I'm actually pretty reserved when it comes to buying clothing- especially trendy items, and I almost always need for the article to be on sale for me to buy it.
I recently had the opportunity to work with SheIn. I had seen SheIn on other blogger friends blogs and social media, and I've had conversations with them about this budget-friendly retailer. I was gifted an item of choice, and while browsing the site, I loved loved LOVED their cute apparel and wares and fabulous dupes. They legit have the cutest novelty handbags and accessories- and most of it is under $30!
I was excited about the item I picked, but I was worried about the sizing. I know a common theme with some brands like this are the sizing runs super small. Like my V Neck Floral Wrap Dress....which I ordered in an XXL to be on the "safe" side, to have it arrive and not fully wrap around my bust. Or my hips. SO, in a creative effort, I decided to keep the dress and wear it as a long kimono instead and tie it in the front. I actually think its even more stunning this way since it looks different. I'm also going to wear it as a bathing suit cover this summer!
This is the fabulous thing about fashion. you can completely make fashion and style your own by thinking out of the box a bit to make an item work for you. When you have a piece of clothing that you really like, but it doesn't quite fit right, think of the options for wear. Either layer it, tuck it, roll it, add a belt- the list goes on. In my case, I layered the item- I wore a black slip dress under it, which completely tied the look together. I then added floral heels for some pattern mixing, Stella & Dot White Tassel Earrings to add some color, and a fun vintage purse that was my moms. Even though I had to play around with the look a bit, I felt like a million bucks at the end of the day! And, can I add, this wrap dress (or kimono in my case), is only $25?!
So, if you're ready to get some trendy items that won't break the bank, head to SheIn and start to browse. Just remember to always read the measurements and plan to size up at least1-2 sizes in the clothing!
