REVIEW : SHEINSIDE

Dear Internets,

sheinside

It’s easy to write about things you love but a not so glowing review a mixed bag can be just as helpful so here goes. There are quite a few “too good to be true” disposable fashion stores online. Its a great place to browse when you’re feeling broke and looking to shop or in my case, looking for something fairly specific that you can’t find anywhere else. For some reason I was desperately looking for a pastel autumnal trench and the Blue long sleeve pockets trench coat from she inside promised everything but did it deliver?

Pros:

  • The jacket is essentially as it is pictured.
  • Delivery was reasonably speedy
  • There are opportunities to lower the price through a points scheme
  • There are a large variety of items at a very modest price range
  • It fit the basic requirements of what I was looking for so I absolutely love this jacket

Cons:

  • It doesn’t drape as beautifully as pictured
  • The material description is fairly broad: In this case “polyester” translates to a crepe looking fabric.
  • The jacket is not lined so don’t expect the trimmings of branded clothing.
  • One of the buttons on my jacket was stitched so that it puckered the fabric. It served no practical purpose and it I didn’t need it aesthetically so I  had to unpick it.
  • Their customer service has a lot to be desired.

Would I buy again? Only if I had another hankering for something specific I couldn’t get elsewhere.

  1. I love this post! I think it’s really great to hear about a not-so-positive and shining review as well. It’s extremely helpful and honest! I just got a blazer from Sheinside as well and the quality is—-not so great. I definitely agree with you on not coming back unless there’s something no other store has
    Also, thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog! 🙂
    Hope you’re having a lovely Tuesday! xx

    1. Urgh, isn’t that annoying Kelly. It’s certainly not cheap enough to warrant such bad quality but definitely on trend. What can you do

  2. Such a shame the jacket isn’t everything you wanted – as it really is such a nice colour! 🙂

    Your review is why I’m always a little wary ordering from new places online – sometimes the good price can be much more attractive than the actual item when it arrives, haha! 🙂

  3. i’ve been thinking a lot about ordering from them, mostly because i know some of the photos are stock photos from other sites. glad to have read this, and i think i agree, i’d probably shop there if there was something specific i was after!
