Sammydress Fashion Review: Satin Baseball Cap + Winged Pastel Backpack

Hi guys! I disappeared for a bit due to exams and schoolwork, but I'm back now with a review of a store I've never previously featured on this blog: Sammydress! I figured I should switch things up a bit from the regular clothing hauls, so here's an accessories/bag haul featuring a white satin embroidered baseball cap and pink-and-blue pastel winged backpack. Details ahead!

Satin is probably my favorite fabric of the season, so I was ecstatic to find these embroidered satin caps.

Sammydress is an online shop that sells tons of clothes, shoes, accessories, and more at low-and-affordable prices, so while a hat like this could cost $20-30 or potentially more in a regular store, Sammydress sells it for just a little over $5!

This hat is currently sold out but was originally offered in black and white. According to the store pictures, it features two embroidered dragon heads at the front, with an allover smooth satin construction.

The actual hat that I received, however, wasn't accurate to the photos. It was made of the same silky-smooth satin, but had a double tiger head embroidery instead of dragons. I'm disappointed with the accuracy, but not with the product; the overall look ends up being the same, and it's a very sturdy, stylish piece for the price so I'm still quite satisfied, though I wish Sammydress updated their photos to more closely resemble the actual product.

The second item I got from Sammydress was a blue-and-pink pastel winged faux leather backpack.

While the satin cap was noticeably different from the advertised online pictures, this backpack actually looks nearly exactly as expected! The only difference is that the pink part is a bit more peachy in person than online.

The bag seems sturdy and well-made, and was wrapped nicely to protect from damage during delivery. Costing under $20, it's definitely worth the price, with adjustable straps, three outer pockets, and a drawstring-and-snap-button closure. My only issue with it is that the faux leather strings at the top have to be tied together to keep the bag closed, which is a bit tedious. 

Overall, though, I'm in love with this adorable pastel backpack! The winged design is super cute, the bold colorblocked design is very eye-catching, and the quality surpasses what I'd expect for the price. It's well-sized too and can fit stuff like books and small laptops, making it a piece that's both stylish and functional!

Overall

From my first experience testing products from Sammydress, I can say that their quality is pretty great for the low prices, and I'm happy with the two items I got! That being said, with sites like this the items are often hit-or-miss, and sometimes the product photos online aren't the most reliable. The satin baseball cap, for instance, had a different embroidery than pictured online. It's really best to look for products that have customer reviews and customer-posted photos, since these can give you a much better idea of what the items actually look like.

Nonetheless, I'm satisfied overall with my order and especially in love with the pastel faux leather backpack! Check out more of my fashion reviews here, and thanks for reading!
