Wish-Is it Legit?

Hello everyone! I am finally back after a long break. Thank you so much for tuning in to this post. This week's topic is super interesting-at least to me..haha... and it involves the Wish app. I've seen it all over Facebook, ads on Youtube, ect. and to be completely honest, I was very skeptical at first. I'm all about budget buying, but whenever I see clothing apps or clothing ads on Facebook, I just never know if it will be a scam.  In case you didn't know, Wish is an app that sells suppppper cheap items, ranging from free to 10-16ish dollars. What I"m most interested in is their clothes.

Whenever you find a new place to shop, especially if its online, you always should do your research; search up reviews online, go on Youtube, or check out videos. That's just how you will know for sure you will get your money's worth. Unfortunately this takes up a lot of time.

Don't worry tho, a particular shopaholic (haha -> thats me) got you covered. I did all the research for you, and all you have to do is continue reading to find out my findings.

First lets share with you all what I got. I tried to buy a variety of items to make sure I cover all of my bases, from swimsuits to cute two piece outfits. I am confident that I got a few of the most worth it items on Wish. I'll just quickly list them below:

Here are my thoughts.


Shipping and Delivery:
Each item ships independently from one another. If you order 6 items from the site, all 6 items will come in separate packages. They also will also have different delivery times. Typically I receive my items in about 2 1/2- 3 weeks (the estimate delivery time is sometimes up to a month, but I usually receive it a little bit before.) Overall I don't mind the wait.

Quality:
Likewise quality is also hit and miss. Not all the items are great on the site. I've seen so many bad reviews online. However, if you really look through the site, you can find a few gems on there. Luckily for you I already did that for you. Everything that I showed you on the post I am happy about. The quality was better than I expected, and for such a low price,  I am not at all mad about it. Out of all the items I bought, I was only dissatisfied with one item (I'll give you more details later on in the next post).

Sizing:
Make sure you read the dimensions that the sellers provide. These are Asian sizing and are made for petite girls. As for me, I found that most of the items I bought fit me very well (this is probably because I am 5'2 and fairly small). I listed the details of the exact size I bought on the site as well as my own personal dimensions in inches. I also gave you all a try on picture so you know exactly how it fits on me. Keep in mind everyone's bodies are different. How it looks on me, may not be how it looks on you. However, you can use what I gave you here today as a guide if you decide to purchase on the site.

Pricing:
Here is a tip on items- sometimes multiple sellers will sell the same item for different prices. Just choose the cheapest one you can find, as long as their photos show the same item. Also you can get "group deals" where if you buy with another customer you will get a discount. Make sure you click on those two, it will usually save you 1 or 2 dollars. Also, make sure you check how much shipping cost. On this site, items ship separately. This also means you have to pay for shipping separately. Likewise with pricing, each seller will have their own shipping price. Make sure you look at them to ensure you are really getting the best deal. If one seller lists their item for $6 with $5 shipping, why not just buy the same item for $7 with $2 shipping.

Overall:
I definitely like the site, and really love everything that I've gotten from it. However, I am at a point where I feel like I've bought everything that I think is worth buying on the site. This may just be for me because I have a very distinct style that I like to wear, but do let me know if you all find something I may have missed.

And that's it! That wraps up my haul and review. Since this posted ended up being so long, I will post all the try ons, as well as details about my personal measurements in next week's post.

Thank you so much for reading. Please do leave comments below if you have any comments or extra questions for me.

Signing out for now,

How to Rock Low-cut Tops/Dresses

How are you doing!! Welcome back to my blog. This week I had such an amazing time shooting at Bernal Heights in San Francisco. Let me tell you, the view from there is absolutely amazing. It is a grassy hill overlooking the city. It was breathtaking. Now lets jump right into my outfit. The staple of this look is this maroon slit dress from Forever21. I have never grabbed something off the rack so quick. It is a STUNNING wrap dress for a fraction of the price.  But...I took one look at the dress and knew there would be a problem. Look at the cut of the dress and see how low it goes down the chest. It was a v-line straight to my bellybutton! If you have the chest to fill this dress, wow am I jealous of you. Girls with smaller chest area (aka me) typically stray away from these type of low cut tops/dresses, as they are often perceived as unflattering on the figure.  However, I am here to tell you my tricks on how to make it work.  First step, be very cautious on

Black and White Photo Meet

Hello everyone, how are you today. A few weeks back, I had the opportunity to organize a very special photography meet with a few of my friends in Davis. We wanted to keep it simple, a black and white theme in the Arboretum, and tried to find new unique ways to elevate the photos. Here is what we came up with.  Please ignore my awkward hand placement :D For my outfit, I wanted to look clean and chic. I found this distressed graphic tee on sale one day and knew I wanted to include it in one of my photo shoots. You can't really see it in the photo, but it is distressed on one side of the collar. Something very simple, but made the tee look very grunge and unique. I liked it. I layered underneath a black slip dress from Brandy Melville. You can belt the dress and tuck in the shirt, but here I decided to tied it into a simple knot. Just another way to re-wear your dresses and make it look different-now its a skirt! I'm always finding new ways to layer my clothes to ma

Night Out

Welcome back everyone.  Temperatures are slowly dropping as we charge headfirst into the frosty winter weather. Today I am more than excited to share with you my all time favorite night out look . Whether its grabbing a couple drinks with your girls, or a date night with your boo, th is look is sure to steal the show.   Mesh and glitter. How can you go wrong. My entire look was centered around this beautiful top. I was out shopping with my friends when I came across this piece. I have seen this top all over the internet over the past couple of months. This retails for a variety of prices ($9.99 at Forever21), but I got this for a STEAL of  a price. Guess where? Wish.com! Wish is a sited filled with incredibly high discounted items. I have seen so many hauls on Youtube, and decided to test it out for myself. I was surprised to find such a gem on this site. I purchased this top for $5 including shipping. Honestly, thats the price of a Starbucks drink right there. Althoug

One Top, Three Looks

Basically Basic: Tank Tops Hi friends! For a while now the majority of the clothes I buy tend to be trendy pieces that come and go. This meant hoarding off the shoulder or tube tops, sporting gingham or plaid, and buying the occasional pieces that I THINK I would wear all the time, but then end up sitting at the bottom of my closet. Today, I am going back to the basics.  The great thing about basics is that they never go out of style. This means you don't need to break the bank trying to keep up with the trend. They are a classic, a necessity in every closet. I am very excited to be starting a new series on this blog, "Basically Basic". From simple t-shirts to plain denim jeans, each blog will show you how universal these pieces truly are, and how to style simple pieces into outfits that are far from basic. This week's topic: one tank top, three looks. The first step is to get your hands on a tank top. Despite being "basic" there are so many diff

Pretty In Pink

Do not be fooled by these smiles, over the past week and a half, my life has been a total mess. I've been studying super hard for finals as well as picking up extra shifts to make up for the upcoming Christmas break. And to be quite honest with you, I'm slowly feeling as if I am burning out. Sometimes you just need a break from life. To get away from the hectic commotion, and just focus on yourself. Nevertheless, I managed to put together this look together before finals was due.   What I like most about this look is its simplicity. Here I tried to bring back some color to my life by wearing this muted pink wrap top. I loved the polka dot design of it-it brings just the right amount of fun without making me look childish. Not to mention, its perfect for my petite body as I can adjust the top to my figure.    When putting this fit together, I wanted to elevate a more casual look. Also its finals! I don't want to be walking around wearing

Teddy Bear and Me

Shining, shining, shining. Wow is this statue spectacular.  This week I wanted to update you all on my visit to a newly built statue in Sacramento, Subtitled . All I can say that it is memorizing, unlike anything I have ever seen before. If you are ever in the area, stroll down the water front to find this amazing view. Metal plates reflects a mellow field, wide open land--and if you're lucky, you'll might witness a cute family of geese. This post features one of my new obsessions for winter, this teddy bear fur lined sweater that is the perfect combination of style and comfort. Whenever I wear this out, I feel as if I am still curled up bed, wrapped up in its warmth. A transportable blanket! And its so easy to style too. This muted pink shade pair well with just about any bottoms. Style with a black pair of leggings, or some dark washed jeans. Stunning. Let me know how you like this look! Is it this comfy look for you?  As always full outfit descripti
