What I Wore: Spotty White Dress

15 May 2017

Shen Spot Dress

A few weeks ago, I featured a pretty, floaty off-shoulder dress.

This week I want to show off a more affordable option and picked out this Spotted Off-Shoulder Dress, courtesy of Shein.

It is a super pretty dress, that is comfortable and fits really well. It is lined throughout (not in the sleeves though) so it isn’t see-through. I received a lot of compliments when I wore it out the other day.

Best thing about it: I didn’t have to iron it and it doesn’t crease easily. I love that! I just pulled it out of the bag, aired it a bit, threw it on and it looked fantastic!

Not so great thing about it: The fabric looks a bit cheap. But the whole garment has a good weight to it, the stitching is good, and the fabric feels nice and soft… so it doesn’t FEEL cheap.

There might also be too much fabric at the waist, because it bunches up and makes my hips and bum look a bit bigger than they are haha. Maybe it would look better if I was taller? Because it doesn’t look that bad on other customer reviews on the site. Or maybe I’m just imagining it because it’s such a flowy and ruffly dress?

I’m wearing the XS and I’m usually a Size AU/UK 6.

Overall, it’s a lovely spring or summer dress to wear to a special occasion.

Check out more Off Shoulder Dresses from Shein. They have lots of cool and affordable styles!

I have to be honest, Shein is potentially quite hit and miss, because their product photos tend to look much better than the actual product. They do have sone good stuff. But you have to look REALLY carefully at customer reviews, customer photos, product photos, product measurements and fabric details. Then google the item for more customer images or blogger reviews.

Shipping also takes some time too. And I’ve read that that returns can be a bit of a headache.

Personally I’ve never had any bad experiences, in fact, I’ve only had excellent shopping experiences and customer service when I’ve bought from them in the past.

I also wore: Meli Melo Rosalia Bag and Tony Bianco Heels.
