I had the honor of attending the Dan Liu FW18 show this season and the entire collection was phenomenal. Every piece was the perfect balance between chic and elegant, creating the highly coveted appeal of items taken directly off the runway that embody a sense of practicality. From the feminine and contemporary dresses to the soft puffer coats to the modern trench, Dan Liu's FW18 collection was everything I wanted and honestly needed in my closet.

I like to mix and match outfits with both high-end and affordable pieces - it makes my outfits a toss-up and a lot of fun to put together. My current go-to for affordable pieces is SheIn, an online retailer that has a bottomless inventory of trendy heaven. Fashion should be accessible to everyone and SheIn has an incredible assortment. I'm amazed by how many styles they are able to cater to. Not only do they have elevated ruffle tops and dresses that you all know I love, they also have yeezy-esque pieces to diversify your closet.

In this post, I want to share with you all my shopping experience given that there are mixed/negative reviews about the site.

(Note: The opinions expressed in this post are my own and is not sponsored by SheIn.)

Shopping Experience: 

1. Sizing: This is sometimes tricky when ordering from SheIn, but for the most part, I have had good experiences with sizing. I typically will only stick to looser fitting tops and dresses, but even the more fitted items typically run true to size. I would definitely read some of the reviews to glean information as well.

2. Shipping Lag: Since SheIn ships as clothes become available, shipping can sometimes take up to 3 weeks. In the past, I've waited anywhere between 1-3 weeks for my SheIn haul to arrive. My suggestion would be to not order anything from SheIn if needed immediately. However, rest assured, my packages have never been lost before. 

3. Returns Timing: For the most part, I've never felt the need to return the items I've ordered from SheIn. However, when I did return SheIn pieces, it usually took longer than average. Additionally, you have the option of purchasing the return premium at the time of purchase for a free first return. Afterwards (or if you didn't purchase the premium), you'd have to pay a $5.99 handling fee. Given the affordable prices, I usually didn't think it made sense to return the items.

I hope this post is helpful for your future shopping sprees! 

Sincerely,

Sarah

I grew up in the Silicon Valley...and always took technology for granted. Technology was just always there. I did recognize that it improved the quality of life, but I never truly understood how pervasive it is. I was always interested in fashion and thought that there was no way that technology could ever have anything to do with fashion. Boy, was I wrong!

Recently, I was accepted into the invite-only affiliate program called LIKEtoKNOW.it, which allows users to receive shoppable links directly to their email when they "like" an enabled Instagram post.

LIKEtoKNOW.it is the program that was created by rewardStyle, a fashion/tech start-up founded by Amber Venz (who was only 24 years old!). LIKEtoKNOW.it has MASSIVELY disrupted the fashion industry. The sales-driving platform brings together brands, retailers, bloggers and influencers, and customers making it easier to connect and shop than ever before.
