SheIn Review: My Summer 2021 SheIn Order

SheIn Review: Honest Thoughts on my Summer SheIn Order

I used to be a frequent SheIn shopper and loved their designer-inspired pieces. But over time I became a loyal Amazon, Target and Walmart shopper and stopped ordering from SheIn altogether. That is until this striped maxi dress caught my eye. I can’t remember if I stumbled across it on Instagram or Pinterest, but before I knew it, I was down the SheIn rabbit hole and decided to do a full SheIn review!

I’ll be doing a full try on over on Instagram stories today, so make sure and check that out to see all of the pieces live.


For reference, I’m 5’7″ with a long torso and long legs. I typically wear a 27 in jeans or a size 4. My bra size is a 34D, and I am a true size medium in tops but sometimes size down for a more tailored fit or up for a more oversized fit. For this order I sized up in almost everything due to my previous experience ordering from SheIn. However, everything was a little big, so next time I will stay true to size.

SheIn review, SheIn smocked maxi dress with shoulder ties

SheIn Review: Smocked Maxi Dress

This smocked maxi dress was the first thing I added to my cart and it is absolutely gorgeous in person! It reminds me of something you’d see at Nordstrom. I love the tiering, contrast stripes and shoulder ties. Such fun details for the $23 price point!

It could easily be dressed up for a summer wedding, or worn casual with flat sandals for a Forth of July BBQ. SheIn used to run pretty small so I sized up to a large, but I would have been completely fine with a small or medium so I would stay true to size.

clear strap espadrille wedges

SheIn Review: Quilted Bag and Clear Strap Wedges

I’ve had my eye out for a pair of clear strap sandals for a while now for dressier summer events and I thought I’d roll the dice on this $30 pair. Once again, I’m extremely impressed. They’re comfortable with a cushioned insole and the straps don’t irritate my feet at all. They have about a 3 inch wedge heel and look way more expensive that they are! Fit is true to size.

And this quilted chain bag is a look for less of a much more expensive designer bag. It looks and feels like real leather and I love it so much, I’ve already purchased the blush color. It can be worn as a shoulder bag or crossbody and holds a ton.

white babydoll summer dress, ruched chain bag

SheIn Review: White Babydoll Dress and Ruched Bag

How adorable is this white babydoll dress?! Once again, I sized up to large in this but could have gone down to a medium. At just $21 the quality is unbelievably good. It’s fully lined, with pretty smocked straps and the cutest ruffle detail. And I love that it’s not too short. Brides, this is a great option for a shower or rehearsal dinner!

This ruched bag is another great designer dupe and would be perfect for event and weddings. It comes in a bunch of neutrals and is just $16. I don’t think the chain will wear well, but at that price, I’d be happy to get a few wears out of it.

SheIn review, pink gauze babydoll top

SheIn Review: Pink Babydoll Top

A bunch of you alread snagged this babydoll top and it’s such a good one! It reminds me of a very similar top I had from Urban Outfitters and is the perfect easy breezy summer piece. Again, I sized up in this, but would have been fine with my true size medium. It comes in 5 colors and is made of cotton.

SheIn Review, flutter sleeve striped tee, SheIn basics

SheIn Review: Flutter Sleeve Tee

What I wasn’t expecting was to also find that SheIn seriously delivers when it comes to basics. This flutter sleeve tee is a total J. Crew dupe and is so dang cute! It’s just $9 and comes in nine different colors. Mine is the blue and white but the red and white would be so cute for the Fourth of July! Again, I sized up to a large but would have been fine with a medium.

SheIn review, studded sandals, Steve Madden sandal dupes, quilted bag

SheIn Review: Studded Sandals

Ok, I totally buried the lead but these studded sandals are just $23 and a total dupe for the much pricier Steve Madden Skyler sandals. They are very comfy and fit true to size. The only difference is that they are a slightly lighter shade of tan and the toe is a little more rounded than the Steve Madden pair.

SheIn graphic tees

SheIn Review: Graphic Tees

Another pleasant surprise was the vast selection of graphic tees. They remind me so much of the graphics I’ve seen at Urban Outfitters but are all under $15! They fit oversized so no need to size up.
