I’ve been eyeing the Sheinside website for quite a while now.  So when they reached out and asked if I would be interested in trying out some of their clothes, I couldn’t help but oblige.  And while there were SO many cute things to choose from on their site, I ultimately settled on a dress that is almost identical to my favorite Free People dress (which you can see here).  At a mere price tag of $30 vs. the $148 original version, I wanted to compare the two and really get a feel for the quality of clothing on Sheinside.  And you guys, I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. While it is a little shorter than the my Free People dress, I overall like the fit better.  The arms were also a little slimmer too, which I also prefer.  And I have to say, I was also quite impressed with the quality-not only the was the fabric very nice, but the dress was also fully lined.  After this experience, I will definitely be shopping with Sheinside again.  In fact, you can see my current wish list at the bottom of the post!

Even though I am sure they are different today (and as silly as they still are), I can’t help but remember the names of all of the different cliques at my high school: the preppies, the slippies, the jocks, the popular kids, the smokers, the drama kids, the choir kids (that was me), and last but not least, the skaters. And I swear, when skater dresses became popular this year, all I could think of were the skaters I knew in high school. Silly story, but true none-the-less. And while, of course, I do love a good skater dress-I am especially loving them right now. Because they have a tight bodice, a higher waist, and a full skirt, they are ideal back to jackets and cardigans, which makes them a perfect transitional piece from summer to fall, or back to school.

I can’t believe that I have never tried a pair of Sole Society shoes before.  I actually picked up this pair (for a steal!) when I was in San Francisco for meetings last week.  And I have to say, I am super impressed.  Not only are they super cute and affordable, but the quality is great and they are comfortable to boot.  They have definitely earned a fan and a return customer in me!

Hope you are having a great week.  Thanks for stopping by!
