The first item that I got was a long sleeve embroidered black dress. It's unfortunately sold out now, but was on sale for $19.23 and offered in one size.

This dress features flared three-quarter sleeves, a drawstring waist, a lace-up front, deep plunging neckline, and white/silver embroidery on the front and at the shoulders. The string comes with the dress, but you have to lace it up yourself (and I accidentally laced it up from the bottom rather than starting from the top :') ). You can choose how high you want the lace-up front to go, or tie it however you wish.

The dress is made of a flowy, breathable fabric, fully lined with a smooth, silkier layer on the inside. Quality-wise, it's definitely worth the price. It's pretty comfortable, though there were a few loose threads and lint gets stuck on the fabric rather easily.

Criss-crossed lace-up designs have been in trend lately, and SheIn has tons of products with the style, including their long sleeve lace-up T-shirt, sheer pocket-embellished blouse, tie-front bodysuit, lace bodycon dress, wine red faux suede dress, lace-up oversized sweater, and maxi dress, along with many others. I wanted to try out the trend, and I picked this dress because of the unique embroidery.

In terms of sizing and measurements, the dress matches SheIn's descriptions. Personally, I think it'd look better with full-length sleeves rather than three-quarter sleeves, but otherwise I'm satisfied with the fit. It's a very short dress, though; I have to wear shorts under it, and if you're taller, it'll fit more like a tunic-style top.

SheIn's embroidered black lace-up front dress is a good buy overall, and turned out just as I'd expected. It's very different from most of the stuff I wear, and I'm glad I tried it out!

The second item that I got was a black faux fur vest, currently on sale for $24.50 (originally $40) and sold in sizes S-L.

This sleeveless fleece-lined vest has a black faux leather exterior, loose fit, and asymmetric hem. It's about 75cm at its longest point and 60cm at its shortest in the back, with a fold-over collar and faux fur trimmings.

Material-wise, this vest is lightweight and comfortable. The furry fleece material is super soft, and even though the vest is pretty light, it's quite warm and cozy, making it a perfect layering item for autumn and winter.

The vest looks as pictured on SheIn's site, with an oversized fit. It's easy to match and looks great layered with nearly anything, from T-shirts to dresses.

The issue with this vest, however, is that the fleece on the inside sheds like crazy. I read a review on the site that said the shedding would stop after some time, so I'm hoping that's true. But for now, I have to wear this only with light-colored clothes, otherwise the fluff falls onto other clothing and looks super noticeable.

I'd rate this black fleece vest five stars if the fleece didn't keep shedding. It's very warm, comfortable, and soft, but a bit of a pain to wear because the fluff keeps falling off.

The third item that I got was a choker-style cutout long sleeve shirt. This was the least expensive of the four that I got, costing $16.48 and offered in S-XL.

This long sleeve top is made of a smooth, stretchy material with a cool touch. It's not very breathable or warm, and it's definitely more of a stylish top than a layering one. 

There are small cutouts at the shoulders and on the back, as well as a larger cutout on the front. This top features a choker-style neckline, with two buttons on the back to secure it.

The top fits pretty well, though I wouldn't mind if the sleeves were a bit longer. It has a lot of stretch to it, but I'd prefer if it was a bit more form-fitting. Since the style is pretty simple, it goes well with all sorts of skirts, shorts, and pants.

The final item that I received this time from SheIn was a gray turtleneck sweater. Sold for $23 in one size, this sweater also comes in khaki.

This sweater features a high-neck design, which you can wear as it is or fold over for a turtleneck look. Turtleneck, mock neck, and high-neck styles are always trendy in the colder seasons, and this sweater adds its own touch to the trend with big shoulder cutouts and an oversized, baggy fit.

That being said, this sweater isn't very true to SheIn's product measurements or photos. SheIn describes the length to be 62cm, and the model photos make it look like a top, but it's actually almost 70cm in length and could pretty much fit as a dress on me.

I like the actual sizing and fit better than the described one, so I'm happy with this discrepancy. The sweater is made of a chunky knit fabric which thick yet soft and comfortable, but not too warm because of the holes in the fabric. The sleeves are also super long, which I love!

My only problem with this turtleneck sweater is that it had a very strong scent when I first took it out of the bag. After washing it, though, the scent disappeared, so everything's good!

Overall

The item that I was least satisfied with was the sleeveless fleece vest, because of the shedding. Other than that, this was a pleasant experience with SheIn. My favorite item would have to be the gray sweater, since it's a comfortable, casual, versatile addition to my fall wardrobe!
