The Story: Recently while browsing pinterest I saw the cutest sweater. I thought to myself(as with most of my clothes) "That looks SO comfy". But still stylish and put together enough where I could probably wear it to work.
Of course when I click on it the link isn't helpful at all and I think "Great, I'll never find it". I of course try to anyways. After painstakingly scouring the web I find several similar sweaters, but they just aren't that same adorable quilted fabric I was looking for.
I debated getting one of these because I still love the look and they would be almost as good, but after one final attempt using a reverse google image site I found a couple last resorts to try. Now I can't say for certain if this is where the sweater originated from but I was hesitant to order. They all looked like sketch fast-fashion coming from China clothes. Mixed reviews on all of my options, but the pricing couldn't be beat so I went for it. I decided to use the one I found on http://us.shein.com/
The Review: On your first order they give you a 40% off code. There was also a "huge sale"(hint: I think there is always a huge sale). The sweater I wanted was on sale for under $18, for this price I had to try it. Upon checking out I found out you get free express shipping(3-7 days) on orders over $29. I'm a sucker for these deals so I found a second sweater/shirt on sale for around the same price. Here's where it gets tricky. The 40% off is off of the full price, since everything was on sale it all stayed the same price. I did question this since it didn't state that on the website. Customer service got back to me pretty quickly to explain. The other issue I had, which I think also needs better explanation on their website, is the processing/shipping time dilemma. I got the shipping confirmation once my payment was processed but it was just to say the label had been created and it sat in limbo for a few days. Once it did ship however it arrived much faster than anticipated.
Sweater 1: Upon first glance it is exactly what I was looking for, almost exactly as pictured, and I am very happy. A few minor faults which were to be expected for the price.
Sweater/Shirt 2: This I bought because I thought it was really cute and if it was good material then it would make a great top. I was impressed with the sweater material on top, it was not t shirt material as I expected. The "leather" detail fabric was unfinished on the edges but that doesn't really bother me.
All in all for what it was I am impressed. The quality could be better but is honestly better than I expected based off of my last sketchy buy. Would order again for something fun I didn't expect/need to last long! And they have lots of unique pieces.
