Distressed Hem (& FAQ)

I am so in love with all of the distressed sweaters lately! I knew this one was going to be a favorite of mine when I spotted it online. It wasn't an "off shoulder" knit but the way it hung on me - it wanted to be! I let it off the shoulder to one side for a more relaxed look than having it stay up on both shoulders. One of my go-to fall looks is definitely the most basic kind. I love a simple pair of denim & booties with a fall sweater. My hat collection of course has to make an appearance basically daily :)

Alex and I have been redecorating our living room space in our apartment and I'm so excited to share with y'all soon! I want to keep incorporating more home decor posts on here with you girls since the majority of you love seeing them. We are planning on hosting some parties/dinners coming up here this month & next month so we needed a refresh. We weren't planning on doing an entire makeover until we came across our new table that we just couldn't pass up. (Home Goods is the best!) I'll be sharing that either this week or early next week. Xox!

SheIn FAQ's:

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!
