Nowadays its so popular to order everything on line…from furniture to groceries to clothes…its kinda crazy crazy when you think about how easy it is to get all your favorite things, needs, and wants delivered right to your front door! Many a night I’ve found myself staying up (way past my bedtime mind you) perusing women’s clothing and shopping my favorite stores on line.
One of my go to websites that I have ordered cute + trendy clothes from time to time is SHEIN. If you’ve never heard of them, they’re an international e commerce platform that mainly sells affordable women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories. Recently I’ve noticed they’ve started to carry stuff for men and kids too so I’ll keep you posted if I try out some of their other lines!
I recently had the chance to check out one of their pop stores here in the Phoenix area and it was absolute bananas!!! Never seen so many people packed into one store before for a shopping event. The prices were so unbelievably good though it was hard to pass up the chance to score some new goodies for Spring and Summer despite the massive crowd!!
First up…I’ll share with you what I actually took home from the pop up event. Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for a few tips and tricks that I use to help me find my right size when shopping on line stores.
Coral Pink Asymetrical Sleeve Dress
This dress is totally giving me spring fever!!! From the pretty bright + bold color to the flirty ruffled hem…for the price you can not go wrong with this dress that’s only $26!! I love the super fun slightly puffy sleeve and the one shoulder asymmetrical detail makes this one even more modern + sexy without showing too much skin. Definitely wedding guest and brunch approved, juts pair with some summer sandals, wedges, or a white heel for a dressier look. I’m 5’8 and wearing a small for size reference.
Two Toned Off the Shoulder One Piece Swimsuit
This sexy one piece is totally what you need in your life for your next vacay or pool party!! Made of stretchy ribbed cotton material, all eyes will most definitely be on you in this cheeky swimsuit that’s only $13!!
Tribal Print Boho Cami Dress
You’re gonna want to live in this easy + comfy boho dress. For only $8 it’s a total steal!! Has adjustable straps and totally tall girl approved…this flowey loose dress would look so cute layered up with tanks and bandeau tops too. I wore it here with a pair of my favorite platform wedges, Panama hat, and a beaded beach tote. Wearing a small and it fits true to size.
White Kimono and Black Triangle Bikini
I love stocking up on fun kimonos for summer! This gorgeous white sheer one is great to wear over swimsuits or can even be layered up over dresses and tanks and jean cutoff shorts for a casual day look. The one if found sold out already but I linked some other really great affordable options.
I also found this adorable high waisted swimsuit while I was in the store. The bottoms have an amazingly comfortable thick and super elastic band that just sucks you in. It’s sold as a set with this triangle top and a sheer shirt. I love mixing and matching my bathing suits and this one is a great one to add to your collection for only $15!!! I’m wearing a small for size reference.

My Tips for Shopping On Line:
- Always consider the model’s size, height, etc.
I like to judge how things will fit on me by comparing how it fits on the model. Look at images where they are simply standing up modeling the clothes. Where does the hem fall, how long are the sleeves, where do they hit the model in the picture? Even though the image itself is eye catching, angles and poses can be deceiving on how the clothes will fit you in real life!
- Read All THE REVIEWS!!!
I like to start with the bad ones. How many of them are there in ratio to the good reviews? Many on line e commerce stores actually pay or gift consumers for positive reviews so do your homework. Does that person ever leave a bad review on other products? You can almost always view a consumer’s profile on shopping sites to see if they have reviewed other similar products. If a product has thousands of good reviews and only a few bad ones, you’re probably safe to assume it’s good quality and will arrive as described.
- FREE shipping is your best friend!!!
Shop from websites that have free shipping or low cost shipping options. No good deal saves you money if you have to pay an arm and a leg just to get it delivered!!
- Sign Up for the emails sister.
I know, I know…I hate spam mail just like everyone else. But I will say I’ve saved a ton of money just by checking my promotional email inbox for all of those sale alerts and on line exclusive deals. I only sign up for stores that I shop often…this way it doesn’t clog up my inbox too bad!
