Shein Fashion Try-on Haul & Review: Is It A Scam?!

Have you ever seen those Facebook ads that advertise cheap clothing that is really cute and trendy? Or maybe you’ve seen your favorite Youtubers haul clothing from those Facebook ad websites and they end up being really cute on camera? Probably more than likely, that’s a yes and you’ve always been curious whether or not they are real companies or are they a scam. Well, I totally thought they were a scam too until I picked up a few pieces myself and now I’m hooked.

Are you ready to hear the tea on Shein from an unbiased truth from a broke college student just trying to look fashionable on a budget?

First off when I clicked onto the website, the layout has clean categories and layout, but it was a tad bit busy with all of the sale signs. Once you click on a category, the website was very crispy and clear on the items. It’s stepped up very similarly to Forever21’s and GS-Love’s home pages. I love that on each item there is a size chart that you can use to guide you on sizing of each individual piece. Shein is an Asian-based website, but when I ordered, I found each item to be true to size and good quality. I ordered three items from Shein: a tribal print off-the-shoulder top, a flowy leaf dress, and a tassel crossbody bag.

Tribal Print off-the-shoulder Top ($11.00-click here to purchase!)

I love the summer time heat because I get to wear shorts and off-the shoulder tops, which is why I’m loving that they came back in style this season. I saw this top on the Shein website, and I absolutely fell in love with the design! Once my items arrived, I noticed that the top was a tad bit thin, but what can you expect when you order an item that is mainly white? Otherwise, the item fitted perfectly in length and wasn’t too tight across my arms.

Flowy Leaf Dress ($15.00-click here to purchase!)

This has to be my favorite purchase from my order. I’m literally obsessed with it and I was so shocked on how great quality that item is. My biggest worry with purchasing this dress was the fit and the sheerness of the item, since it’s white. Not to fret though because the dress fit perfectly and was even double lined so you can’t see anything through the material! The straps aren’t adjustable, but they are the perfect length on me.  Definitely a must purchase, if you love this item as much as I do! Its such a versatile piece that you can dress it up or down with a pair of heels or some sandals and a jean jacket. For reference, I am 5’1” and the dress comes to a little above my knees, so if you’re taller than me, then this dress might be a little short on you.

Tassel Crossbody Bag ($21.15-click here to purchase!)

I’m not the one who usually carries a purse and if I do, it’s typically a large purse. It’s almost like I feel like I have to make up for my small size with a larger handbag to balance the look. But I’m loving tassels for the summer time and this purse just screamed me, so of course I had to get it. It’s pretty good quality for the price and the strap is adjustable so that you can change the length as you please.

Shipping: My order came in about a week after ordering and the processing time.

Final Thoughts

For the super low prices and pretty quick shipping, you really can’t beat the deals that you can find on Shein. It’s a great website to try out new trends or different styles you wouldn’t normally buy in-stores! I was really impressed with my first order from Shein, especially since I had such low hopes for the quality of the items I bought. The best tip that I can give you when ordering from Shein is to use the size measurements as a guide to decide what you size you’ll need (it’s really accurate!) and to check out the reviews/photos for each item. You can learn a lot by reading the reviews and seeing how the piece looks on different body types, or at least that’s really helpful for me when I’m shopping online.
