{Haul + Review} JollyChic - Panda Sweater, Sheer Dresses, & Crop Top

Hello lovelies! Enjoying the holidays? I'm finally on winter break, so I'll be reviewing my first fashion haul from the Hong Kong-based fashion store JollyChic! My order shipped really quickly and contains a cute panda sweater, floral maxi dress, mesh skater dress, and "Parental Advisory" crop top. Review ahead!


JollyChic is an online shopping site that sells clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories. It is based in Hong Kong and is partners with many import and export companies across the world. As quoted from their site regarding their products:
Jollychic.com provides popular garments for both individuals and wholesalers. We offer a whole catalogue of products including tees, dresses, blouses, coats, sweaters, pants etc.  
JollyChic has a great variety of styles at amazing prices. They also update their site with new items every day and offers FREE express delivery to the U.S. for orders over $69. Throughout the year, JollyChic runs a lot of seasonal promotions and special discounts or deals such as $15 off, $30 off, or even $50 off depending on how much you spend.

I placed my order for four items on December 10th, qualifying for free shipping. Since JollyChic sources its products from various manufacturers and warehouses, I waited about seven days to prepare the package. I tracked all of this online through JollyChic's Order Info page, which showed the updated progress of my order.

After my order was shipped out via DHL on December 17th, it took only two days to arrive at my door! Although preparing and processing the package took a few days, I was very impressed with the speedy shipping.

❹ "Parental Advisory" Long Sleeve Crop Top

Cute Semi-Sheer Panda Sweater

The panda sweater is made of a partially see-through knit and features color-blocked sleeves and a panda-face hood. The fabric is thin and delicate, matching the photos on the JollyChic site. 

This adorable hooded sweater from JollyChic is a dupe of the Wildfox Panda Face Hooded Billy CardiganBoth are made from a similar material, but Wildfox's has slightly longer sleeves and a larger hood. 

Of course, you have to keep in mind that there's a huge price difference: Wildfox's sweater retails at $198, while JollyChic's dupe is just $15.99! If you're simply going for the style, I'd recommend the JollyChic panda sweater.

Panda Sweater: Thin fabric but super cute style! 4/5

Long Sleeve Slit Floral Maxi Dress

I don't usually wear maxi dresses because I'm quite short (5'2") and they tend to make me look even shorter, but the sheer fabric, floral print, and split style of this dress work really nicely together. This dress just barely touches the ground when I wear it, so it's perfect with heels or wedges.

The material is really comfortable, and the print is clear and vibrant. My only small complaint is that the sleeve opening is a bit too small if I button it.

Forever 21 also sells the same dress online here, but F21's sells for $42.90 while JollyChic offers it for just $15.99. This is a great fashion steal and the quality is really impressive.

Note: due to terrible lighting, the print looks dark here, but the actual product is just as vibrant as the photos on JollyChic's site!

Maxi Dress: Trendy, unique, and pretty even on petite people! 5/5



Collared Black Mesh-Paneled Skater Dress

I've been trying to find a nice black dress, so I was ecstatic to find this dress at JollyChic for just $25.99! It's simple without being boring and can be dressed up or dressed down to suit the occasion. 

This black dress blends a classy folded collar with sexy gauze detailing and an a-line, skater dress silhouette for a figure-flattering fit. The smallest size JollyChic offered for this dress was size S, which fits fine, although a size XS might be better since I like more snug-fitting clothes.

My favorite part of this dress is the sheer paneling at the top. The fabric is really cool and silky, unlike some sheer fabrics which have that fishnet texture.

"Parental Advisory" Long Sleeve Crop Top

I ordered this long sleeve black crop top mainly so that I could qualify for JollyChic's free express shipping, but I was definitely surprised (in a good way!) by the quality and fit of this top.

The cotton is soft, and the white printed letters aren't stiff or easily cracked, so I'd say this is well worth the price. I love that this crop top cuts off at the thinnest part of the waist, which really helps to accentuate your figure. It is also very form-fitting and slimming, so I absolutely love it.

Crop Top: Great quality and fit! 5/5


I tend to be wary when ordering from China-based online fashion retailers because the quality is often a hit or miss. JollyChic is a hit, and I'm truly amazed with how the items turned out!

Shipping was quick and the clothes were packed nicely. Sizing was fine, and there were no errors in sizing/color with the order. I love all the clothes that I received, including the hooded panda sweaterfloral maxi dressmesh-paneled LBD, and long sleeve crop top, and I will definitely consider purchasing from JollyChic again in the future!
