Fashion Friday #3 — Shein Haul #1

For the longest while Shein was always advertised on my Facebook and Instagram feed. Although I browsed through the advertisements I never really trusted it. Until more of my friends purchased from them.

It was maybe two months ago when I placed my first order.

It had taken approximately 1-2 weeks for me to get my order, which was faster than the estimated time frame. The fact I felt sketchy about ordering from the app did make it feel as if it was taking far much longer for the order to come in.

Here are the items I purchased in my first package:

I have only tried this sweater on once thus far, I ordered a large which is my actual size and it fits a little over sized. I definitely would not suggest sizing up.
I have worn this a few times around the house. Cannot wait to start wearing it outdoors, it has been too hot for it lately. Just like the sweater above it fits a bit over sized. i don’t recommend sizing up.
This dress I purchased in a size XL. It fits, but the make of it makes it cling to you. Although I do like it, I can’t see myself wearing it outside of the house anytime soon, as it really points out my flaws and insecurities. If you size up 1-2 sizes could probably work for maternity attire.
The pink top is in XL which fits a little loose, the red top is in L and fits me a little too snug. Works out fine since I’ve been trying to lose weight.
I ordered this in XL and fits me nicely. Feels so comfortable.
Purchased this in L and it fits me a little on the snug side. In the t-shirts I’d probably recommend sizing up.
Super cute hair clip and really comfortable to wear.
Out of the two hair clips, this one is my favourite. Super pretty and comfortable.

To be honest I normally don’t wear hair clips, a lot of the ones I used to have were way too tight and very hard to get it on without hurting my hand in the process. These are honestly very easy to use and I’m super happy about them.

These hair ties make it feel a little more on the retro side. But I honestly love them.

Overall the material of the products are all really nice, nothing was itchy or painful to wear. I’m the kind of person that cringes when a price tag of an item is on the hefty side… I mean, I can’t spend $50 on a pair of pants without feeling regret about it. Shein is also a good way to test items out to see what styles best suits you. If you go through a trial and error phase, you wont be throwing too much money out the window.

Overall for this order, I have spent a total of: $120.79 Canadian tax in. Which I think is a pretty good haul.

Have you ever tried Shein? Were you happy with the product?

Fashion Friday #1 — Mermaid Style

Fashion over the years have been interesting and some sense of styles I have seriously questioned why it even existed or wondered how it even became a thing. I’ll get into those styles another day.

Today, I want to talk about MERMAID style.

Yes… 🧜🏻‍♀️ <——— Mermaids….

When I was a little girl I was absolutely in love with Mermaids. I found them so majestic and beautiful. I wanted to be one.. me being a Pisces and funny enough.. I can’t swim, so I always used to say I’m a fish out of water.

But as much as I myself wanted to be a Mermaid… I would’ve never thought I’d see a time that fashion itself, has a Mermaid style.

Pretty sure the first time I knew about the style was hearing about a Mermaid style wedding dress. It’s nicely fitted at the top and then kinda fans out at the bottom (sort of line fins). This particular style primarily looks good on average or thin built women. Some curvy women can also pull this style off easily…. but not overly thick women (like I don’t think I’d be able to pull a dress like the one below off.

I one day hope I can get a dress like this to look good on me. But, I also imagine walking in it very difficult.

These dresses honestly look so beautiful though 😍😍😍.

In the past few years I have noticed Mermaid pattern bas become very very very popular!

This is honestly really pretty. But, I cannot imagine going out in public like that.
I absolutely love the way this lipstick looks, but personally if it was outside of a convention or halloween, I don’t think I’d be able to be seen public with lips like that.
These nails are absolutely stunning and I feel if I were to get into any form of mermaid trend.. it would definitely be the nails!
These look pretty neat, maybe I’d wear this depending on the occasion and the rest of my outfit.
Honestly in awe with this dress.
And the skirt is absolutely stunning too. I actually own a pair of leggings similar to this and cannot bring myself to actually trying it on to see if it will suit me.
Animal Crossing and their mermaid themes is definitely getting me more hooked to the idea of mermaid fashion and style. My room isn’t quite like this yet but it’s definitely my goal!
The most popular of all….
Seems to be….
The hair! And all three of these are soooooo pretty! I would have to bleach the heck out of my hair if I ever wanted to do anything like this.

To be honest, I never knew this hair trend a lot of people were doing was considered as “Mermaid Hair” till I looked it up on Pinterest.

What are your thoughts on the mermaid style? Are you a part of this trend? Would you ever consider trying any of these? Would LOVE to hear your thoughts.
