Shein Try-On Haul

If you’re like me, then you’ve seen people getting the cutest things from Shein lately. I had been on the fence for a long time about ordering from this retailer as I didn’t think the quality would be what I wanted.

Well, I finally took the plunge and placed an order. My first thought…the website is EXTREMELY overwhelming. There is just too much to look through which made the whole experience a bit stressful. Once I narrowed down exactly what I was hoping to find though, it seemed to go a bit smoother. I also found the mobile app to be much less overwhelming than the website!

The shipping did take a bit long. I think from the time I placed the order to when my order arrived, it was about two weeks. I was in no hurry though, so it didn’t really bother me.

Be sure to check the sizing and reviews for EACH piece. While you may be a small in one thing, you could be a medium or even large in another.

Finally, when you create an account you will unlock a ton of discounts! Don’t miss out on those to make your total even less!

Alright, now into what I got! Click on any of the images to go directly to my and grab these items!

Puff Sleeve Tie Back Top – $9

I was really looking to grab some nice work tops with this haul since I will be heading back to the office soon. This one quickly stood out to me. I love a good puff sleeve! At first, I didn’t love it, but then I steamed it, and now I think it’s great! I sized up one to a Medium in this and I think it fits perfect! It also comes in seven other colors!

V-neck Batwing Sleeve Tee – $10

In addition to work tops, I was also hoping to find some great casual tops for the summer. This one looked perfect, and for $10 it seemed like a steal! While I do think this is good for the summer, it definitely is a thin fabric and didn’t match my House of Colour spring colors, so I’ll be sending it back. However, if this is your style, I say grab it! It comes in 29 colors! I’m wearing a small for reference.

Allover Print Round Neck Blouse – $10

I really wanted to love this top, but it was just ok for me. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the top of the neckline lays quite strange on me. I love this color, but it just didn’t work. It comes in four other colors. I’m wearing a medium.

Solid Flutter Sleeve Tie Back Blouse – $13

Here’s another one that I wanted to love! And I did…until I tied the back. That made the front neckline lay weird like the previous shirt and it just wasn’t working. It’s super cute besides that though, and comes in eight other colors. I’m wearing a small.

Allover Print Surplice Front Layered Hem Dress – $19

How cute is this dress!? It is such a perfect, lightweight dress for summer, but it can also be worn to the office! One word of warning though…it’s definitely a thin fabric so you’ll need to wear nude undergarments or a slip. It comes in 10 other colors. I’m wearing a medium

Allover Graphic High Waisted Bikini Swimsuit – $13

I have had my eye on this bikini for a while now! The colors are just perfect and it looked like it would be flattering. To be honest, since I’ve been injured, I’m not in my best shape and hesitated to even post this, but this is real and this is me, sooo here ya go! This suit is extremely comfortable and it doesn’t feel cheap at all! It is definitely cheeky, but I don’t mind it. This is a winner in my book! For reference, I’m wearing a medium.

Racer Back High Low Tank Dress – $11

This dress looked super cute on their site, and that’s because it is. However, there is no way you could wear this as just a dress because it’s extremely see-through. That being said, it makes an adorable cover-up so it’s a keeper to me! It also comes in 9 other colors. I’m wearing the medium.

Drop Shoulder Open Knit Cover Up – $16

How adorable is this coverup!? I feel so chic in this. It’s a great piece to wear when you’re coming off the beach or out of the pool to grab a drink or a bite to eat. This one comes in five other colors. I’m wearing a small.

Abercrombie Denim Review

Finding the right pair of denim can be challenging! They are either too short, too long, not stretchy enough, gap in the back, etc. I remember having the hardest time growing up because of my body type as a gymnast, and that hasn’t changed much!

So after hearing multiple people rave about Abercrombie’s denim, I decided to take it upon myself to try out four different styles to see what all the hype was about. Keep reading to hear my review on the denim I tried. 🙂

For reference, I’m 5’2” and fluctuate between 135-140 lbs. I ordered a size 28/6 short in each pair.

The Super Skinny Ultra High Rise

I put these bad boys on, and immediately fell in love. They fit me like a glove! The rise hits perfectly and sucks in just the right amount. They also have just the right amount of stretch. Oh, and the short length was perfect! All in all, I give these a 10/10!

Curve Love The Super Skinny High Rise

People legitimately rave about the Curve Love line, so I obviously added a pair to my order. I’m not sure if it was this specific wash, or the entire line, but they were not my favorite. The rise was even higher than the Ultra High Rise leaving me a little confused. That wasn’t the main sticking point for me, though. While they fit true to size, they had slight bunching in the front crotch area, and that’s just something I couldn’t move past. I rate these a 6/10.

Ultra High Rise Ankle Straight

I was the most excited for these. I’ve been on the hunt for a good pair of straight ankle denim that weren’t super loose around my knees, and again, I’ve heard rave reviews about these. I get it! These suck you in on the front and lift you up on the back, if ya know what I mean. 😉 And the wash I got is super flattering! The only problem…I ordered a short in these, as I did for all other pairs, and they are TOO short. That’s not normally a problem I have as a shortie! So, I’m going to rank these a 9/10 ONLY because they were too short. Otherwise, they are great! I’ll definitely be grabbing these in a regular length!

High Rise Super Skinny Ankle

Another winner! These are probably the least high rise denim of the bunch – they hit RIGHT at my belly button. I love the distressing on these and the fit. Just like the previous pair, they really suck you in and lift you up, all without giving you a muffin top! These also have great stretch to them. I’m giving these a 10/10, too!

I hope this was a helpful review! I love trying out new brands and testing them for you. So, if there is every something you want me to test before you buy, let me know!
