SheIn Review: Bustier, Kimono, + 2-Piece Set (+ Giveaway Winner Announced!)

It's been some time since my last SheIn fashion review, so I'm here again today with an all-white haul, featuring a white beaded bustier top, white tassel-trim kimono, and white printed La Boutique dupe two-piece set. Plus, I'll be announcing the winner of my $120 SheIn store credit giveaway at the end of this post, so read on to find out if you're the lucky winner!

The Eat My Knee Socks/Mimchikimchi fashion haul from SheIn/SheInside, with a white beaded bustier, tassel longline kimono, and boat-neck top and shorts set.


Today I'll be reviewing three items from SheIn/SheInside. I decided to go for an all-white theme this time, so the clothes that I chose are the white beaded bustier top, the white longline tassel-trim kimono, and the white moon and stars printed two-piece set.

The first item that I picked was a beaded bustier top that I've had my eyes set on for quite a while. This spaghetti-strap top is currently sold out, but originally sold for $50.50 and was on sale for $36.17.

Though this top was rather pricey, the quality definitely makes up for it! The front of the bustier is full of pearls and rhinestone beading, all of which are attached securely and beautifully, exactly as pictured on SheIn's website.

The bustier has a very intricate front, with a simple white trim on the hem, straps, and the back. The back is equipped with a row of five hook-and-eye closures, with several adjustable lengths.

SheIn's beaded bustier top is perfect for the summer, and goes great with a simple pastel skirt.

The beaded bustier top is heavy but well-made, and it looks great with all sorts of skirts or high-waisted bottoms.

The sizing is fairly accurate to the measurements provided in the product description. The white straps are adjustable, and it fits me well through the waist and back. On the other hand, I don't exactly have the boobs to fill it, so it looks kinda awkward :')

Overall, though, I really love SheIn's pearl-and-rhinestone beaded bustier top, which is incredibly elegant, eye-catching, and high-quality. It's a wonderful top for the summer, and it is absolutely beautiful with a pastel mini skirt or flowy maxi skirt!

The second item that I got as part of this SheIn fashion haul is a longline tassel-trim kimono. Kimonos seem to be flooding the fashion scene these days, so I finally caved in to the trend and got one for myself! SheIn's white longline kimono is simple and inexpensive, with crochet and tassel-trim detailing along the hem and on the edges of the sleeves.

This white half-sleeve fringed kimono looks just like it does in SheIn's product images. The fabric is thin and breathable, great for summer, but also not too delicate.

The lace-trim tassels and fringe detailing are fairly well-made, and quality-wise I have no complaints! This kimono currently only costs $16.33, which I'd say is a good price for the product.

I've never worn kimonos before, but this longline tassel kimono is pretty easy to style. It looks great with anything from shorts to skirts, and you can wear it as part of a boho-chic outfit, as a cover-up for the beach, or, if you're super-afraid of the sun (like me :'D), as a thin extra layer over a cute dress or crop-top-and-skirt outfit.

SheIn's longline tassel-trim kimono is a hot-weather wardrobe essential, with a simple yet well-designed style that adds a flowy, summery touch to all sorts of outfits. I'll be going on vacation for the summer soon, and I plan to bring this with me!

My third and final item in this SheIn order is a moon-and-stars printed two-piece set. SheIn lists this item as a jumpsuit/romper, but it's actually a set with a boat-neck peplum top and high-waisted matching shorts. Currently on sale for $29.66, this unique style is a dupe of a design by La Boutique, a luxurious Thai fashion brand.

When I picked this item, I really wasn't sure if I'd like the style, but the combination of the print and the shape was just so unusual that I had to try it.

The two-piece matching set is made of a smooth, thinly-lined material. The boat-neck top has a sweetheart neckline, concealed back zipper, padded bust, and contrasting black trim on the sleeves and the hem. The hem is also adorned with a stiff white mesh-like material.

The shorts have the same black-and-white galaxy print as the top, along with a hidden side zipper.

The top, for the most part, looks as pictured on SheIn's site, though the shape of the hem is less wavy, and the top edge lacks the thin black trim. The measurements for the bust and waist are accurate, though the top is slightly too big for me.

The matching printed shorts are also too large on me; they fit decently, but I'd rather have them be tighter. On the bright site, you don't have to wear the two pieces together; the top looks amazing with simple white or black shorts underneath, or with leggings for chillier days.

I wish the top was a bit tighter, perhaps with a ruched back design that could allow it to have some stretch, so that I wouldn't have to worry about it slipping down. 

Style-wise, I found that I actually really like how this set (mainly the top) looks! The off-shoulder sweetheart neckline reminds me of princess dresses (Cinderella, anyone?) and compliments the shoulders and collarbones really nicely.

Though I chose this moon-and-stars printed two-piece set as more of an experimental, "this-looks-funny-so-I-should-try-it-for-the-hell-of-it" item, it turns out that the matching top-and-shorts set looks super cute in person! This is probably the most unique item I've ever gotten from SheIn, and aside from the imperfect sizing, it's wonderful.

Overall

My all-white fashion haul from SheIn turned out quite nice, and I love all three items that I got, including the white beaded bustier top, the white longline tassel-trim kimono, and the white moon and stars printed two-piece set.
