Red & Green Yet Not Festive

Share this post:

I was looking for Christmas-y pictures to post and then realized I’m wearing red and green in these—well, at least I sorta am…lol.

OK, so I said when I made my first Shein order that I wouldn’t order again (check out video of my first unboxing here), and I meant it at the time. But then some Instagram ads got me and I was also given a gift card that could only be used online, so there’s that. This trench is so cool because of the colors on the back and on the belt and it’s an extreme exception to my rule of not buying things from sites like Shein. It’s not bad quality-wise, but it’s also not amazing. I can keep rocking it though—it’s such a fun piece. I would love a trench this style made with a more substantial material.

Shein can be hit or miss for me and I’d rather not dabble into shopping there too often. Lots of people love it though.
