As a short intro, CrossWalk is a Storenvy-run clothing store based in Edmonton, Canada. They sell a small but unique selection of bold yet simple Asian-style clothing, with all items costing just $15 or less! They ship internationally and carry many printed tops and socks, along with simple, casual clothing, perfect for those who love Asian streetwear.

I got three tops from them to review, and shipping took around three weeks. Without further ado, here are the reviews of the individual items!

The first item that I got was a short sleeve pink T-shirt with mesh detailing. Costing $15, this one-size-only shirt is sold in pink, yellow, and blue.

This top is made of a bright, bold, smooth hot pink fabric with mesh paneling along the front and the sleeves. It's comfortable and easy to wear, with a boxy, loose fit.

The shirt looks exactly as pictured on the store website, with the same hot pink color and oversized shape. For some reason, the color looks duller in my photos, but the real product is very bright and eye-catching.

This mesh-paneled top is pretty good quality-wise. The fabric isn't thin or sheer, and doesn't wrinkle much. In terms of sizing, it also fits as described on the site.

Personally, I think this shirt would look better with shorter sleeves, but nonetheless, it's accurate to CrossWalk's photos and descriptions, and you get what you expect! It's a casual top, easy to pair with all sorts of jeans, skirts, shorts, etc., and the combination of the bright pink hue and the sheer stripe add a simple, minimalistic yet unique touch to this attention-grabbing piece.

The second item that I got from CrossWalk was their printed mock-neck "Yep!" top. Also costing $15, this top is offered in black and white, one-size-only.

This printed tank top features an all-black fabric with a white lettered print, along with a high-neck design.

The first thing I noticed about this top was that the white lettering had a bunch of gray specks and splotches on it. While I think this adds a sort of grunge-y touch to it, it's certainly different from the pictures, and it's most likely the result of color transfer or fading.

Quality-wise, aside from the issue with the print, this top is fairly well made. It's constructed from a soft, breathable, thin cotton material, making it comfortable to wear.

Unlike in the store photos, however, this top doesn't really have much of a mock-neck design, and the fit is rather boxy throughout, instead of being form-fitting like on the model. Additionally, the words seem smaller than pictured on the store site. I'd like this top a lot more if it looked as it appeared in CrossWalk's photos.

Despite the flaws, this is still a shirt that I'd wear a lot, especially because it's quite comfortable and it pairs well with all sorts of skirts and high-waisted bottoms. I'd wouldn't recommend it if you're searching for a tight-fitting mock-neck top, but if you're looking for a simple, versatile, slightly cropped tank top, check it out!

The third and final top that I got from CrossWalk was their Garfield sweatshirt. This printed blue long-sleeve sweatshirt is sold in one size for $15.

The color turned out lighter in my photos than in reality; the actual product's colors are much closer to the colors in CrossWalk's product photos. The print, for the most part, also looks as pictured on the store website, with a cute Garfield face on the front and white stripes at the sleeves.

The quality of this sweatshirt is good overall; the fabric is a bit thinner than most sweatshirts, but nice for a casual top. On the other hand, the print is rather stiff; it's held up pretty well so far and doesn't crack like I worried it might, but it's also not the most flexible or comfortable to wear.

I do have to say that the sizing of this top, particularly the length, is different from what I'd imagined. It's really not a crop top at all; it fits like a regular-length shirt, and the length is a lot longer than described on CrossWalk's site. The product description also lists the sleeve as 15cm, which would be extremely short, but the actual sleeves are full-length long sleeves and fit fine. Also, the shoulders are narrower than described, so if you're looking to get this top, be sure to take note that the measurements of the actual product differ from those on the site!

Otherwise, this printed sweatshirt is a cute and comfortable item. As with the other two tops, this printed Garfield sweatshirt is super easy to style, giving off that cute-yet-casual vibe. The colors are bright, fun, and eye-catching, and this is perfect for anyone who likes cute, bold printed clothing.

Overall

I have some mixed feelings about CrossWalk's clothing, particularly in terms of product accuracy. While the pink mesh-paneled T-shirt was 100% identical to the store photos, the printed "Yep!" tank top and Garfield sweatshirt were both different in terms of sizing and fit. Overall, though, I think CrossWalk's clothes are reasonably- and affordably-priced, and all three tops that I got were comfortable and easy to wear! The quality of the tops, as a whole, was also pretty good, and I didn't find a single item with loose threads or whatnot. They've got a bunch of styles catered towards the cute, casual, yet bold category, so if you're a fan of printed T-shirts, simple tops, and Asian-style fashion, give them a look!
