Sheinside order was a huge disappointmentSunday, June 29, 2014
Recently, I made a big summer order from Sheinside. I was really excited because most of the clothes were on sale. I like their style and prints and of course the price is just too cheap, so I got really tempted and ordered several skirts, dresses, t-shirts and shorts. When the package arrived I had high hopes. I tried all of the clothes on and took pictures to show you all why I will never, ever get anything from Sheinside again.
I am starting with things I am most disappointed in.
I was really looking forward to wearing this white, floral dress. At first I noticed a tiny but still very annoying stain.
Second - I tried the dress on, looked quite okay. Not the best quality material, maybe a bit too light and see-through but I thought I'd give it a chance. When I took it off, it tore very easily and I do not think I would even bother repairing or washing it, as all this mess put me off.
Here is a link to how it looks on the Sheinside page. I paid £9 for sale price, RRP £15.
Here are the shorts, which I couldn't even try on, as the button came off. The button is made out of plastic, so I am not surprised at all! I ordered size S, but they are a bit too tight. Mostly I am annoyed with the quality though. I paid £9 for sale price, RRP £12. Here is a link to the Sheinside page.
If anyone thinks they would fit in these shorts and it is no problem for them to replace the button, please email me and I wouldn't mind posting them to you! Shorts : hips - 80 cm / 31.5 inch. Thigh - 53 cm / 21 inch. I like my shorts a bit loose, these are too tight around my legs.
The next one I was waiting for the most. I was really excited to get this high waist pleated skirt. I was caught by this lovely bright green colour. Sadly this skirt is too tight at the waist. I ordered size M but I don't think I could fit top/T-shirt inside. Also, it is not quite as long as I expected and the colour is a bit different too. I got it for £8, RRP £11. Here is also a link to their page.
This green floral pleated skirt didn't look so nice on their web page as it looked in real life. I didn't like it but Tristan recommended it, so I thought I'd trust his fashion sense. My size is S and the measurements are right! Finally! It stays nicely on the hips and the quality is also quite good. I like the floral pattern and this summery look. Material is light and hopefully after the first wash creases will come out. I got it for £7, RRP £11.
As seen on my left (at the bottom of the dress), it is good to check for hanging threads before trying on clothes.
And my favourite so far - the winner is Blue Floral Flare Organza Skirt. I absolutely love it! The skirt reminds me so much of Estonia, probably because of the flag colours. I got it for £9, RRP £11. These clothes have not been washed or ironed in the pictures, so they might look a bit unworn. This dress will definitely be my summer most-worn skirt. As soon as the sun comes out I will wear it!
Zip on the back looks good and I love the golden colour. Link to their page is here.
Here are two T-shirts I got, which fit very well and are worth the price I paid.
Links are here (cat) and here (pockets).
As I am already talking about Sheinside here, I might as well post a picture of a dress I ordered at the beginning of the year (February). Link for this dress is here. I paid £18, RRP £40. I really like this long Chiffon dress but I am afraid it doesn't go with my figure and I quite imagine it more as a maternity dress.
I must admit I am not pleased with Sheinside at all. I think out of any 3 things I order from them, only 1 will have met my expectations. I have made orders 3 times now and this will be my last. Yes, the clothes are cheap but it doesn't mean they have to be crap. I think Sheiniside is a bit misleading, all these clothes looks perfect in their online shop and when you get them, it can be a huge disappoinment.
