You may notice the dress is a lighter blue than the pictures on the website would suggest, which I personally like. I ordered an XXL and although it fits my chest, it fits a bit big in the waist. Given the dress’ construction I don’t know how easily altered it will be, and since I was too excited to wait, I chose to camouflage with a cute belt. The dress comes with a little white belt, but I preferred the look of a wider one, which I stole from my sister’s closet when she wasn’t looking. The yellow bangle added a fun pop of color, and in the future I would definitely pair this outfit with this pair of yellow earrings, like these sun-kissed studs from Kendra Scott.
A lot of people have asked me how I find such good quality, low-priced items online and although initially it was often luck of the draw, it has become somewhat of an art. Here are my top five tips on shopping effectively and safely on China-based websites!
(1) Sizes often run small, so be sure to pay close attention to the specs.
(2) Know your own measurements.
(3) Choose one or two features that you feel can make or break a purchasing decision.
(4) Read reviews thoroughly.
(5) Checkout with PayPal.
