SHEIN Plus size dress review

January 15, 2018

Oh hey. Long time, huh?

Turns out most people don’t read blogs anyway (thanks to an Instastory poll) so I don’t think I was missed but I’m doing this thing where I’m trying to work on myself and grow as a person after a shit storm of a year (BYE 2017!)  and I think blogging here again might help. Blogging here has always helped in the past, so regardless of whether anyone reads this or not, I’m just going to pour out words here for the release and that happy feeling of publishing a post ( it happens every single post). I’m still going to be way more active on my Instagram of course, but let’s see if just sitting down and writing actually gets us somewhere emotionally. Therapy is expensive y’all.

So, SheIn sent me 3 things from their plus size section, out of which 2 fit. One of them is this beautiful wrap maxi dress– It’s a little on the loose side and the fabric wrinkles quickly but other than that I can’t complain. I had the lowest of expectations because I expected this site to be like those typical Chinese wholesale websites i.e an online Dragon Mart but people kept telling me to check them out.

I also got this cape jacket which is Amazing in person, great quality and fit, definitely feels like it could be from River Island or a pricier Asos piece.

This blazer dress however, PASS. It wouldn’t go past my shoulders and arms and the buttons were super cheap looking. Such a shame because it would have looked so great with some thigh high boots.

Anyway, if you’re interested in checking SheIn out here are some tips:

  • Always check the reviews if available
  • Check the fabric and sizing info like measurements
  • Zoom in if possible
  • Always check their social media for discount codes. You can use code weesha20 for a discount 🙂
  • I’m wearing a size 1x for reference (I’m more of a 16- 18 UK now)

I would totally buy clothes from them, you just have to be a bit savvy when it comes to things like fabrics and sizing. It can be hit or miss clearly, but that’s most online shopping, right? I hope this was helpful!

Golden Hour

July 12, 2017

The light was so perfect the day we took these photos, I wish golden hour was more like a golden day.

This was my birthday dress back in May. I splurged on it and have no regrets (it’s on sale now though. Thanks, Asos). It’s just one of those dresses that make you feel amazing, the fit is perfect and I think photos don’t do it justice.

Turning 31 has been quite the shit show if I’m honest, it has nothing to do with my age, just life circumstances but it’s fine. I’m powering through, we’re not known for being the resilient gender for nothing. I’m just waiting for the moment in my life where I feel like I actually know what I’m doing or know where it’s going, it feels like I have been chasing it forever. And you know what’s funny? Besides my parents, this blog is the second-longest relationship in my life, who knew a little blogspot I started in my childhood bedroom would stick with me for so long. It’s a nice feeling,
