Spring is here, even if winter won’t go away! With that, I decided to go through my closet and pull some looks together to share with you. While these pictures aren’t exactly what I own, they are very close! Everything featured below is based on something that is actually in my wardrobe. Let me know what look is your favorite and where you would wear it!
I’ve already shared my weekend with you, but here re the details of what I wore and how I pulled the look together.
I didn’t get any full body shots of my outfit, so I created the following image to give you an idea of what I wore. I couldn’t find an online image of my shirt online, so I picked one that looks similar:
I’ll be posting a spring look book as soon as Maryland can maintain some spring weather! Until then, stay tuned!
I took a lot of time getting around to this post, for which I apologize! I received my orders from China in the beginning of this month (which wasn’t a super long wait for delivery). The first package to arrive was my Dress Link items, followed by the Sammy Dress stuff.
I would say I expected to get lesser quality items, but the Dress Link items were a slightly lower quality than expected. If you remember from my previous post, I ordered the yellow and tan blouse, music note ring, and a black bikini. All of the items look just like the pictures, which is awesome. It’s just the quality that is a bit sucky. The bikini is cute, but the boob support is not going to work for me, for one. Additionally, the lining in the bikini top is not waterproof. It’s comparable to the lining you may see in a costume bustier. I wouldn’t get wet in it, but I’d wear it to a swim-free pool party (yes, those exist). The blouse was super thin, but still cute. Since it’s long enough, I plan to repurpose it as a beach coverup. The quality is just too flimsy to wear as an actual shirt. Finally, the ring was perfect. Then again, you can’t really go wrong with costume jewelry. It is what it is.
As for the Sammy Dress items, I was in love! Everything had a great quality. I ordered a pink and gray striped shirt that is made from the softest fabric! When I wore it, I didn’t want to take it off! I also ordered a scarf from Sammy Dress and it was also of great quality. It’s just as good as a scarf I would get from Target. It’s thick and large enough to wrap my neck a few times, so I am happy.
Overall, I had a great experience with both sites. I would suggest both sites, but use caution for Dress Link. Stay away from any sheer fabric because it probably won’t be what you want. Since the prices are so low, you probably won’t get mad if the product isn’t what you expected.
Well, since there were some bad reviews for both (in which people said these sites were scams), I was a bit skeptical. I spent time reading lots of reviews before placing my order. I decided to get only a few things from each site to test the water. Since I wasn’t in a rush to get these items, I used Chinese post for shipping. Both packages should arrive between 7-25 days, which is right on target for international parcels. When they arrive, I’ll be posting part two. Stay tuned!
Here’s what I ordered:
