Happy Tuesday dolls! I'm sharing the cutest maxi skirt with y'all today... I loooove a good maxi. Since I'm 5"4', I tied this up so I wouldn't be tripping over it! I could have gotten away with keeping it untied but I didn't want to hide my sandals! This skirt is super high-waisted but I actually love it because it kind of hides everything... haha. I paired it with an oldie but goodie grey tank that is cropped so it tucked in easily. I linked another tank from ASOS (where I originally got this one from)!

I also wanted to incorporate all of the recent questions I've been getting lately on SheIn. If you aren't familiar with the website, they are a "fast fashion" retailed with trendy, affordable pieces. I've rounded the questions up below and answered them all, truthfully. I know some of you have been skeptical to order from there so I hope this post is informational and helpful to you! I wouldn't want to steer any of you wrong, especially when it comes to spending money. I totally get it! See the FAQ's below :) 

How is the quality?
I would definitely compare the quality of SheIn items to those at Forever21 and even H&M. You are paying for "fast-fashion" and that's what you are going to get! I tend to spend my money of 'trending' pieces at places like these since they won't always be in style. I definitely splurge more on basics!

Have you ever received a piece that you didn't like? It wasn't what the site said it would be?
I do work with SheIn on a monthly basis and receive a bunch of new items. However, I don't feature all of these pieces; because sometimes they aren't exactly what I thought that they would be. I have never had an item that I "didn't like" - it is mostly issues with sizing (see below) - I've become smarter on what I order; meaning I look into the size chart on every single piece. I don't order things that I think would be a hard material for me to wear or looks cheap. I only feature pieces that I love and that I think you girls will love, too! 

How do the sizes range? TTS? Run Small?
On every single item, there are different size charts. I make sure to check with each individual piece just to be safe. The tops I have found run TTS and I order smalls and maybe a medium when I want an oversized feel. The bottoms do run very small and I find myself ordering larges in them since I don't have the smallest hips.

How long does shipping take from when you place your order? 
After I place my order it takes around 2-3 days for my pieces to ship (this is from my personal experience, this by no means this is everyones) and from that day I would say it takes 7-10 business days for the pieces to arrive. SheIn did just change "warehouses" (I work with them and speak to a PR person regularly) and since then, my shipments have taken a week to arrive. 

Have you ever ordered shoes? Do they run TTS?
I have ordered one or two pairs of shoes and from my experience I would say beware of which shoes you are ordering. I ordered two flats from there and the quality was perfect. I had zero complaints are they were actually dupes of a designer for just $30. I was super happy with the quality of them. The last pair I ordered, I wasn't as happy with but for the price, they were worth it since I won't wear them everyday. 

Have you had any issues regarding payment?
I can't answer this one since I do work with them on a monthly basis. Basically I choose pieces that I would like with no guarantees that they will appear on my blog. I have never "paid" on the website since my PR girl sends me over the items but I do have close friends that shop on their frequently ever since I've shown them the site and they can vouch that they have never had issues! 

I know I mentioned this above but I do hope that this helps you girls with your concerns. I combined some questions into "one" category since I wanted to keep things short and sweet. They were all pretty much the same just different wording. If I missed anything, don't hesitate on asking! Like I have said, I wouldn't feature pieces that I didn't love and that I wouldn't wear on a day-to-day basis. If you follow my tips and tricks on ordering things and just being careful when it comes to selecting... you should be good to go!

  5. I partner with SheIn, too, and literally could have written this exact same blog post because these are my exact thoughts and what I've learned when it comes to sizing! And I love this skirt and how you tied it up! That's what I do as well with my long maxi dresses and skirts since I'm only 5"2!
