I took a closer look at my summer wardrobe, and although my closet was full of beautiful and fun clothes, it dawned on me that on most days I was wearing the same old denim cutoffs and a simple tee. I needed a wardrobe intervention STAT! The main reason I got stuck in that shorts plus a t-shirt combo routine was the crazy high temperatures. I simply gave up on dressing up in this heat and humidity and settled for the convenience of the old and comfy shorts.
Everything changed when I received this amazing 100% cotton dress from SheIn, and it was the perfect puzzle piece to solve my summer wardrobe dilemma. I got a much needed break from shorts and could feel a little bit more put-together and feminine wearing an actual dress while also feeling comfortable in breathable cotton. Plus, I loved the asymmetrical design and the super fun details like the side button closure, the collar, and the dolman sleeves.
Sometimes it helps
to establish a few reliable wardrobe shortcuts that simply work: a super simple outfit that gets you out the door in minutes and makes you feel great. I have a few of those trusted outfit formulas in my closet and I have a feeling this dress will definitely become my go-to summer piece since it is so easy to style, versatile, and appropriate for many occasions either dressed up with strappy heels or down with a pair of white Converse.

There a few factors that I consider when becoming a new customer of a certain brand.
How many pieces are directly in line with my personal sense of style? I go through my closet and take note of what really works (style, quality, versatility) and most importantly, makes me feel good. These quick inspections help me realize what brands proved themselves time and time again, so I just stay loyal to them.
Obviously I can like a lot of things, but the most important factor is what can I afford and how to build a great look without breaking the bank. In this case SheIn always seemed very tempting in terms of pricing but I was very skeptical of what I will be getting for prices lower than Forever 21, which brings me to the next important criterion.
Quality is very important to me, and I always try to consider how a garment will hold up after a few washes. The quality of this dress was another pleasant surprise when I inspected all seams and fabric, overall it exceeded my expectations, and I am partial to natural fabrics.
I was always curious to try SheIn
and now I can definitely see myself finding a lot more hidden gems with very affordable price tags. I really like that SheIn lists garment measurements, mentions whether fabric has any stretch to it, and also lists model’s measurements and the size she is wearing on the stock photo. It really makes ordering the right size much easier. In my case I am 5’4” wearing size S. I wanted a longer dress so I went with a small. I also saw it worn as a tunic, but I prefer a dress version.
Overall, I am very pleased with my new addition and can’t wait to shop for more! Right now you can get 40% off your first order and shipping is FREE, no minimum.
