The Long and Short of It

Today I have two new dresses to share with you. The best part? They are both adorable and super affordable. That’s because I bought them both online from Shein. I’ve shared some pieces I’ve purchased from them before here on the blog. It’s worth noting that I love buying trendy pieces that don’t break the bank while I don’t mind spending a little more on pieces I’ll wear for more than one season. Are you like that? Then check out Shein! So one dress is kinda long and the other is super short, at least by my standards. Without further adieu I give you the long and short of it!

If you haven’t noticed I have an affinity for all things gingham and wine lately. I really need to quit because it’s almost full on addiction requiring a 12 step program. My name is Kellyann and I am addicted to wine and gingham. Ok, the first part of that sentence actually could qualify me for a 12 step program but I digress.

This dress is only $15 and comes in 4 colors! Of course I chose wine. Take a look at the sleeves though! Seriously, so pretty! I ordered a medium, should have gotten a small but I think I like it a little bigger and a little longer. With a dress that’s loose like this one I like boots that hug my legs. Loose boots look schlumpy with something so loose fitting.

Dress number 2 is only $14 and comes in blue or black gingham. I ordered a medium in it and you can see how short it is. Even though it’s short on me I decided to keep it as well. I am obsessed with the sleeves and of course the gingham print. It’s lightweight so I can wear it all year, it will be perfect with sandals!

This leopard clutch is divine and under $40! If you buy one accessory this year make it this one, you’ll wear it with everything. The quality is magnificent and the price can’t be beat.  It holds a lot too – it’s a fold over clutch so there’s plenty of room for everything your heart desires!

Thinking of ordering from Shein? Here are a few tips. Read the reviews on the items you are considering. Also check out the measurements and whip out the tape measure if needed. This has saved me from making mistakes a few times. All that said and yet I have two dresses in the same size that fit me differently. Sometimes that happens and in this case I am okay with it. Are you ready to give Shein a try?

Make this Friday a good one friends!

  1. I love that you’re addicted to wine, the color, and not the beverage, lol! These dresses are soooo adorable! The sleeve detailing tops the cake and you have the perfect figure for them! So Beautiful! I hope you have a spectacular weekend my dear friend, lots of dining al fresco!

    1. Hahaha!!! Thanks so much my sweet friend! I am looking forward to the weekend like nobody’s business! The countdown begins for our babies to come home for Thanksgiving!!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Both of these dresses are so cute! I am finding more and more lately that SheIn is making their sizing match US sizing a little better (they even changed their product measurements to inches instead of cm, which threw me off at first! LOL), which makes it easier to get the right size. And you just cannot beat their prices! Can you tell me how tall you are? I have a couple of dresses on my wishlist there but I’m not sure about the length so it might help me compare a little better based on how long your two options are on your height!

    1. Thanks Gina, I have been having such good luck lately with Shein and I am so happy. I am 5’5″ – hope that is helpful. I have also noticed that shipping seems a little quicker as well, I am so happy about that too. Have a great weekend!

  3. Mrs R, these are divine! I thought you were wearing your gingham top as a dress! The wine is my favourite (you can take that any way you want!). I watched the screen for a full 5 minutes waiting for the screen to move to the shaking of maracas. I would love that dress and it is stumpy-leg friendly, and the sleeves look like they wouldn’t dangle. If you’ve already sorted out your thanksgiving outfit, then this one is surely for Christmas … Mistletoe and Wine!
    I have looked on Shein before but don’t even remember if they ship to the UK, but usually shipping is prohibitive if firms do ship. But maybe I should skidaddle over there.
    Hugs for an enormously good weekend, x.

    1. Why thank you Lady Leoprint! Yes, wine is my favorite too (taken however you like). In all seriousness that wine dress has the best sleeves and the price is to die for! I think they do ship to the UK. Take a look and have a blast!
      I like the mistletoe and wine idea, sounds like a blog post title!
      I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend!

    1. Thanks so much Laura! I really need to stop buying wine and black and white gingham, pretty soon my whole closet will be overrun by these two, ha! I hope you are having a marvelous weekend!!

  4. Oh my goodness. I totally love both of these and they look so cute on you!! I’ve got to get on the SheIn bandwagon. (how long did it take to get them? I’ve heard shipping is slow) I love your boots too. I should look for a pair like that to wear with dresses…here’s the problem. I stay home so much I just don’t need as much stuff, but I still want it all. And when I’m home, I just want to be all cozy. Oh such a dilemma🤣 Hope you have a wonderful weekend and the reno is almost over. YIPPEE!!! Love ya’ girlie!

    1. Oh Lisa, YES, get on the Shein bandwagon! Shipping has been so much quicker these days, a week at most. I am spoiled by Amazon Prime but Shein has been on it lately. The prices just can’t be beat either. You know that Gibson handkerchief hem top we have? Yeah, they have one and the price is incredible!
      Ok and I totally feel ya, I don’t go out much but I still want EVERYTHING!!! And who knows, maybe one day I’ll be working from home (wink,wink) and then I’ll never have to get dressed, ha!!!
      I hope you are having a great weekend and getting geared up for Thanksgiving!
      love ya girl,

  5. I love everything wine and gingham too! I could use some gingham pieces in my wardrobe (esp b/w gingham!) altho I have a lot of it in my decor right now. I have I think one or two tops from SheIn and I wear them all the time. Def. affordable and trendy pieces! I love those boots you’re wearing too, they fit nicely on you!!

    1. Thanks Carrie! I just can’t get enough gingham, I am looking to add more into my home decor but with the new paint and new kitchen (still not completely done btw) I need to really think things through. The snowball effect is in full swing here, lol! I have been really happy with my orders from Shein lately and the shipping seems a little quicker too!
