Shein Review

 

I debated naming this blog “I ordered from Shein, so you don’t have to”. Even though the price of the clothing is dirt cheap and my gut told me it can’t be that great, I still placed an order because people REALLY do love Shein. I’m all about cheap finds and saving. I like to try out a lot of different trends each season and typically only wear trendy pieces a few times. Shein is way cheaper than Forever 21, H&M, etc., and the quality is WAY below. The material of the clothing is not great, however, the fit of everything is what really threw me off. I tried really hard to look at reviews and read the size charts, however, everything seemed just off. The crop tops that imagined should be tight were loose, the romper that is an XS fits like an XL, and the bathing bottoms are too small and top too big. Out of 12 items, I am returning 7.

Target Wild Fable Review

 

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I have been ALL about Target’s new line Wild Fable. I have been shopping at Target for clothes for over 10 years now. I LIVE for their new lines and collaborations, however, the Wild Fable line is unlike any other Target launch. This line is SUPER inexpensive ranging from $3.00 to the most expensive item at $38.00! It’s super trendy with cheetah prints, 80’s moto vibes, and fall flannel and denim staples. This line reminds me a LOT of Forever 21 because it has super trendy pieces at the right price. You’re able to try all of falls trends at an affordable price, rather than splurge on just one trendy high-end piece. Wild Fable also has some sexier pieces that I think are great for a college girl on a budget.

My absolute favorite part of the Wild Fable line – THE DENIM. Oh my god, the denim. Wild Fable houses by far the best denim that Target has launched (sorry Universal Thread). Wild Fables denim is of course super trendy, with zippers, holes, frayed hems, and overalls. There are mom jeans, skinny jeans, and wide leg jeans. Denim prices range from $15.00 – $31.00. I am not exaggerating when I say that their denim may be the best fitting denim that I own. I have received several compliments on the fit of all 3 pairs of denim that I purchased (I will link with pictures below). Their denim not only fits like a glove but are also super comfortable.

Keep reading to check out my must-have pieces from the collection.

P.S – I switched things up for this post & instead of using the product photos I used actual photos of me out and about wearing the pieces. Some of you gave feedback on my F21 haul on my Instagram story saying you liked to see how the pieces were styled. I hope you enjoy seeing how I styled these fun Wild Fable pieces from Target!
