This top is easily the best $17 I’ve ever spent. You read that correctly. SEVENTEEN DOLLARS. This time of year I always find myself in a bit of a rut, style-wise. By this time, I’ve already worn and re-worn my favorite spring/summer acquisitions a ton of times, so I start to get bored with my wardrobe. I have no interest in spending more money on summer clothes though, because I’ll soon be transitioning into fall items (lighter ones, since I live in Texas). So that either leaves me with wearing the same things yet again, or buying some cheap, fun pieces to keep my wardrobe exciting and change it up for the rest of summer.

I recently discovered SheIn (SheInside – no idea what that actually means), and ordered a bunch of dirt cheap pieces to see what the quality was like. All of the items are made in and ship from China, so the quality/fit of the items is seriously a toss-up. I ordered six items, and was super surprised to find that four out of the six pieces fit me perfectly and look adorable! The fabric isn’t of the highest quality – it’s pretty thin, which is actually ideal in this heat. If I were shopping for winter items, I might complain about that. On one of the dresses I received, the dress part fit nicely, but the sleeves were the size of my wrists – the size of a small child’s arm! The other dress that didn’t work was too tight in the hips – I may just give it to my intern. It would make a cute coverup! Because you are responsible for return shipping to China, it’s cheaper for me to just eat the $25-30 on the dresses that didn’t work, rather than ship them back.

The pieces that did work are great, and perfect for these last several weeks of summer when you want to wear something new but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg. I repeat, this top is from SheIn and only $17! It mimics Dolce & Gabbana’s citrus prints, which I have been obsessing over – I love being able to try such a beautiful, vivid print for such a good price! Stay tuned to see what else I picked up at SheIn…
