Dropshipped dresses- Is it Aliexpress quality?

When dropship-clothes.com reached out to me to do a collaboration for their dropship dresses, I honestly expected it to be cheap clothes. Like the clothes that I buy on Aliexpress most of the time.

They’ve asked me to pick any three items on their website for free in exchange for an honest review.

* I wasn’t sure if the sizing would be accurate so I ordered one size up for all my clothes. Normally I’m a large but I’ve ordered XL in all the items.

Here’s what I’ve picked:

A Pink dawn dress $10.12 :

LRM_EXPORT_510220685953874_20190311_195252384LRM_EXPORT_510291372334283_20190311_195403070LRM_EXPORT_510260196395893_20190311_195331894dropship-pinkdress-pinkhair-backdropship-pinkdress-pinkhair-frontThe dress came just as described in the picture on the website. The dress fit me well but was a bit lose around my bust, which is a miracle because often a dress would fit me well, but the bust would be too small. I’m 1.5m tall so the dress fit me to my ankles. I think it was meant for taller people but still, it fits well. I give this dress 3 out of 4 stars because everything was as expected, nothing out of the ordinary.

A pink party glitter dress: $15.53 :

When the dress arrived I told my husband that I would actually wear this to a formal event (prom) or if I’d known sooner about this place, let my bridesmaids wear it at our wedding. The glitter detail is beautiful and the dress is lined. One thing I disliked about the dress is that the ties at the back of the dress are way too long, but I’d just cut it off. I give this dress 3 out of 4 stars.

A fur trim parka $37.94:

P1260851.jpgI was most excited to receive the parka because a few weeks ago my husband was going to get a very similar jacket at HNM on sale for $50. So, when I saw this jacket for $37.94 I was suspicious. However, the quality blew my mind. The jacket is heavy, the fur can be removed, it is WARM and comfortable. It was too big for me but Marcel posed for a picture. If I have to recommend any of the three items I would recommend this jacket. I give the jacket 4 out of 4 stars.

I will make a video sometime where I show the quality of the clothes if you are interested. Let me know.

I can only speak on the three items that I chose, and I liked it. I haven’t tried out any other clothes on the website. If you’d like me to do another collaboration with this website let me know. Is there anything you are interested in?

Here’s a link to their sales page:

See you around,

How $7 clothes look (review)

Hey Lovers!

When you think about 7$ clothes, companies such as Aliexpress and Romwe comes to mind. SOmething cheap that won’t last long.

But I’ve found a store that sells QUALITY clothes for 7$.

How is that possible?

Well, Everything 5 pounds is a UK online store that sells old stock from brands. You’ll be suprised to see what brands they have in stock. I’ve heard of H&m, Asos and Primark, but there are many more others.

I’ll do a side by side of how the clothes look on the website and what I’ve received.

Let’s go!

Dusty Pink high waisted skirt:

I’m really satisfied with this skirt. The fabric is good quality. I’m a size 10-12 and this is a size 10 skirt.

Black hight waisted skirt:

I liked it so much I got it in black too. Great quality.

Black jacket: 

The jacket fits perfectly. It’s true to size. I love this jacket because I can just throw it over an outfit and look like I’ve put some effort into it. Decent quality.

Denim jacket:

This is my favourite piece from the haul. it is EXCELLENT quality. 70% cotton!

Dusty pink shoes:

I was expecting the fabric to be more sturdy then the picture. However, it’s a soft faux leather. It still walks nice.

I am very satisfied with this haul. I cannot believe for 7$ you get such great quality. I got 6 items for 26euro. Wow!

If you want to hear my thoughts in detail about the clothes or see me fit on the clothes, here’s a video 🙂

See you around the socials!

Casual spring #ootd

Just casually deciding to go for a walk at 22:00 at night because the sun is still out here in The Netherlands.

20180525_213618_1527278730453

I’ve been here almost 3 years and I’m still not use to the light late nights. I’m so grateful 😍

The husband said ‘Lets go for a walk’

I was a bit tired but happy we went. Along the way there was a house, that’s hosting a party and the music played loud.

IMG_20180525_225623_431

It gave the oppertunity for the hubby and myself to dance like no one is watching (no one was) in the middle of a pathway surrounded by wild flowers🍀

Clothing details:

A light fabric blazer is a staple in my wardrobe for spring because it elevates any outfit by just putting it on. It also serves as warmth for the late night breeze. I bought this 2 years ago and can’t link it because it’s sold out.

The dress I made myself. I find a shift dress to fit my body the best. I’m a UK size 12.

The shoes are from e5p.

🍀

I hope you had a lovely day!

 

 

Instagram model pants #ootd #haul

Do fashion gods exist? Cause someone is helping me out.

I saw these pants on Instagram.

20180507_222023Screenshot_20180426-141556

How lovely is it? I thought to myself ‘this must be really expensive/ hard to get’.

I took a screenshot (like I do with so many outfits) and looked at it many times a day. I knew in my heart I was not going to get it since I’m in South Africa. But still, it was nice to look at.

Three days later, I walk past a store, I turned my head and there it was- the exact same dusty pink pants.

I was in complete shock. I went into the store, straight to the pants.
Was it my size? Yes.
Was it my prize? …YES
It was $16,75

And that’s how you come to see me wear these ‘Instagram model pants’

Screenshot_20180505-103727

It’s supposed to be winter in South Africa. I’m still here for a month and a few days. A coat would be nice, but what color? As usual, I saw a Burgundy coat on Pinterest, that I fell in love with.
I took a screenshot, kept staring at it on my phone.

And sure enough, at the same store, I saw the exact coat. They had my size and it was $23,92

Here is how it looks:

Screenshot_20180430-131752Screenshot_20180505-190322

MY REVIEW: Since the clothes are cheaper, of course, it is not made out of the same quality fabric that I saw some models on Instagram are wearing.

However, the quality of the pants and the coat are very good.

The pants are made out of 65% cotton and 35%polyester.
The brand is: Mirasol style

The coat is made out of faux suede.
The brand name: New feeling

I bought these clothes a store called ‘Gaap’. They do not have an online store.

However, I went online to search for it.

-If you are South African, click here for the pants. R280 I’ve bought at Poshclothing before and it’s quality stuff.

-UK, click here From Missguided 45pounds

-US, ( I couldn’t find any for the US, perhaps if you find a pair, let me know so I can update the post)

Happy living!

 

FASHION COLLAB ANYONE?

Well, you have to have interested in fashion of course. I was thinking perhaps an ootd? Summer or winter. (Depending on your country)

I’m feeling a bit spicy, like blowing up my creativeness.

ITALY- street style #ootd

Hey lovers.

I’ve been in Italy a week and I love the street style the Italians have. So,  I’ve base my #ootd on Italian street style.

15304583_10210908414047427_254170600007261287_o

I’ve noticed that there’s a few reoccurring clothing items on the street which is:

Statement bag, Heels and sunglasses

2016-12-04-13-52-44-060

I wore my LV handbag,  with some enkle black boots and my dusty gold sunglasses.

Leather jacket

I love this leather jacket.  It comes with a grey hoodie attached,  but you can unzip the hood if you want to go more formal. In this look I’ve kept it zipped and paired a grey knitted vest with it.

Skinny jeans/ leggings

15272203_10210908411127354_2020072502591914777_o.jpg

I love my leggings because it is so comfortable.  These leggings were made to look like jeans but with the comfort of leggings.

Ever been to Italy?  What’s your favourite Italian street style look?

I hope you enjoy it:)
