Even though this blog is fairly small, I often get contacted by companies to review products or write posts. If you are a regular reader of the blog, you know that I rarely post reviews, and that's because I usually say no. But when Zaful contacted me to pick a product from their website in exchange for a review, I said yes after browsing the megastore and seeing all the awesome casual clothing they had to offer for great prices. Most of my closet is comprised of work clothes, so I am always looking for cute casual items to add to my closet. I had a hard time choosing just one thing to review because there are just so many stylish choices on the site. I ended up picking the below blush pink cold shoulder mini dress from Zaful and I'm pretty happy with my choice. As you can see from the photos on Zaful's site, the dress looks exactly as pictured.
I received the dress just in time to wear it out last weekend to a local brewery tour for a friend's birthday. About 30 of us all took a giant party bus to 3 breweries in the south Florida area and the bus dropped us off at a 4th brewery where we were able to get some food after a long day. There was a lot of sitting on the bus, so I can say the dress handles wrinkles pretty well. The hemline on this dress is unfinished, which was unexpected, but this type of material will not have strings coming loose and should handle several wears/washes before it starts to see the end of its lifespan. For $15.99, I think it's a great deal for an on-trend dress. I would compare the quality of this dress to places like Forever 21, and maybe slightly less than H&M. Although I do not have experience ordering from other asian websites, I would assume the quality is similar. For reference, I'm wearing a size small, and I'm 5'3" - so this dress will be very mini on anyone!
What makes Zaful a cool website to check out are the plethora of casual items to choose from, combined with the almost unbelievable prices. You can get free shipping to the U.S. if you spend more than $30 - which can be around 2-3 items! Please note that when ordering from an international company, you can expect shipping times to take a bit longer than U.S.-based companies. Check out all the stylish dresses they have available! Also, while I was searching through the website, I came across the most amazingly fun promotion I've EVER SEEN which involves POKEMON. So timely, haha!! Check out the Pokemon promotion here.
