Summer in Mumbai is almost a season we experience probably throughout the year.As and humid as it gets I love the vibrance it brings around with the closet. As a child, summertime fun in the sun began with the ringing of the last bell of the day at school. It signified that it was time to do away with all the old homework assignments and to forget about anything to do with school for three months at least. Summertime is a time of simple pleasures and exciting times of the year. Three months of late night sleepovers with best friends, hanging out at the Galleria/water park, and not having to worry about homework had been lingering in the mind since classes began in the fall. When summer vacation finally rolls around, I can never make up my mind-on what to do first. Shall it be riding bikes to the park with friends or hanging out at the mall? One thing was for certain though, the family vacation.
Things have certainly changed so much for me now, my vacations not limited to summer but well bound by the institutions I teach at I do take small getaways more often. One thing I relish about growing up is really just able to support myself for the free will to go just about anywhere.
In this blog I’m wearing one of my favorite dresses. I absolutely love swinging between boho and vintage styles and somehow prefer to favour more boho prints on a day to day basis. Today I will be talking about my SHEIN shopping experience. So I have to give it to my students at Pearl that told me about the website and Initially I was as apprehensive about the Chinese shopping website experience and how long it would take. Now first you need to understand the kind of shopper I am. I have been shopping online since 2012.I remember buying a zodiac t-shirt from a gifting website. Moral being I never shy away from experimenting and really voicing it out if I have a concern with the customer care.
I really imagine it to be a very user-oriented experience. I finally surfed the website for a good 10 days before putting stuff in my cart. My very first order I put was a lingerie-a cage bra I wanted to try. Well, can I just say it was a simple bummer? The lingerie after looking at the size chart I ordered 4 xl and well I could squeeze half my boob in, so unless you are a perky 32 B that really knows her size do not shop for lingerie, at least not my plus-sized babes from the regular section. They have 9introduced new plus size segment-which I' yet to try. The other one being a shirt for my mum with pearls beautiful adorning the entire shirt was a perfect fit at XXL from the regular segment-it didn't fit me though. I ordered a skirt for myself which was well a tad bit loose at XXL for me but I have made it work. Will put the picture of the skirt below.
And honestly, one I had the confidence of how fast the order reaches to me and how easy the exchange is I have made SHEIN my go-to website for fast fashion. What I absolutely like if that they actually include the new trends in clothes that are my size and actually comfortable.
The latest order I got is of the maxi wraparound dress I got , as seen below.

Now I ordered a size 3XL and it was a snug fit. Now I don't really shy away from showing my assets off but to much discretion of my mum, I decided to style it a little differently. I'm wearing a slip dress below to sanctify the dress a bit.I paired the dress with these beautiful INTOTO heels I received along with tassel earrings from H&M.
About sizings-things you must know is a double check on size guide for every garment usually. It is all mentioned in inches. I have ordered from the regular segment too and so far I'm pretty happy with the quality. My biggest must buys are the swimsuit and bodysuits that I get from the website but you have to be extra careful here since they do not have a return on intimate items. The shopping experience has been extremely pleasant and I have given quite a good number of business t them. I mean if I have to find an ASOS like aesthetic sans the customs drift this is my website and I completely vouch for it. The exchanges are also a very hands-on process, it does take a bit of effort but works in your favour trust me. I have always ordered on cash on delivery basis.
Summing up the post here I have a big thumbs up for SHEIN and you must try it too. And this is definitely not a sponsored post from their end so all my views are as honest as it gets. Hope this was helpful and let me know if there any more queries I had love to answer. See you super soon my tomatoes.
