The first item that I picked from Romwe was an embroidered floral mesh top crop, originally $44 but now on sale for $9.32 and offered in one size.

This cropped top is made of a nude mesh fabric, with bright teal-blue flower embroidery, long sleeves, and two straps at the front that you can tie around your waist. It's a style dupe of the Orchid Crop Top by For Love and Lemons, which retails for around $140 and is sold out everywhere.

Obviously, the quality of this top isn't nearly as good as the quality of the original; the stitching on the hem, ends of sleeves, neckline, and sides of the tied waist traps are thicker and darker than the rest of the piece, whereas the FLL original has nearly invisible stitching at the ends. There are also a couple of loose threads, and the top doesn't have as many flowers as the original. Nonetheless, given the price I'm still very pleased with this piece, though I wish Romwe included their own pictures rather than using pictures of the FLL original.

The sizing is accurate to Romwe's measurements, and the mesh fabric actually has a bit of stretch to it even though the product description says it doesn't. The colors on the flowers are absolutely gorgeous, I just wish there were more flowers overall.

These sheer floral embroidered crop top is perfect for spring and summer, whether you wear it with nude undergarments, layer it over a cute lacy bralette, or toss it over your favorite bikini. It's super lightweight and breathable, and the mesh isn't scratchy or uncomfortable. It's honestly an amazing piece for vacations, festivals, or the beach, and the price is super affordable compared to the FLL original!

The second item I got from Romwe was a white angel wings skater dress, originally $48 but on sale right now for $21 and offered in sizes S-XL.

This spaghetti strap cami dress features a sweetheart neckline, partial side zip closure, padded bust, fit-and-flare silhouette, and low-back design with embroidered angel wings. The design is so unique and fun, so when I saw it on Romwe's site, I knew I had to try it out!

I got the dress in size S, and while the bust and waist measurements are accurate to those provided in Romwe's product description, the length is a lot longer than described, more like 80cm than 70cm. The straps aren't adjustable, and I found the length to be too long for me, though I'm sure it'd look stunning on taller girls.

The fabric itself is decent in quality but has no stretch, while the embroidered wings are gorgeous and well-crafted, with practically no loose threads. I wish the side zipper went up all the way to the top, though; instead it starts around 3 inches from the top of the dress, making the dress rather hard to put on and take off.

Style-wise, the dress looks exactly as pictured in the store photos, and the combination of the all-white fabric and embroidered wing design on the straps gives it a truly angelic look. The padded bust makes it easy to wear without having to worry about what kind of bra to pair it with, and the back design is just too gorgeous to pass up on!

All in all, I really wish this dress fit me better, because the style is so rare and adorable. The flared skirt gives it a flattering fit, and the angel wing accents, which are stunningly eye-catching without being too extravagant, make this dress a piece that would be as perfect for an angel costume as it would be for a summer party!

Overall

Romwe always has great sales and discounts, with a ton of stylish clothes and accessories to choose from. The floral mesh crop top and angel skater dress are two of the more unique pieces that I've found on their site, and the prices are fairly inexpensive considering the look of the clothing! While I do wish that the floral top had more embroidered details and I'm sad that the white dress doesn't fit me the way I'd hoped it would, I had a fun time trying out these pieces.
