One of my favourite parts of blogging is sharing super cute, trendy, and budget friendly items with my readers and followers. With summer just around the corner, I’ve been looking all over the place for cute sundresses like this black chiffon dress and in my search, I found and fell in love with the most perfect embroidered flare sleeve dress from Zaful. It features so many of the trends I am loving this season – stripes, embroidery, and bell sleeves (!!!) and at under $40, I’m completely infatuated with it. The simple, pretty style can easily be dressed up or down – as soon as I put it in my shopping cart, I was planning which shoes I would pair with it. My Tory Burch Miller sandals will give it a more casual vibe while black patent leather heels will make it perfect for the office. I’m already so excited to wear it!
Here are a few other super cute Zaful items that are on my wish list:
This ruffled blouse is the prettiest shade of mauve and will look perfect with my favourite skinny jeans and heels.
I’m obsessed with the asymmetrical neckline of this (partially sleeveless) gingham top (and you know I can’t say no to gingham!). This one will be perfect with cut-off denim shorts on hot summer days!
This off-the-shoulder blouse is light and bright and features the embroidery and bell sleeves that made me fall in love with the sundress above. I’m already planning on pairing this with my favourite vegan leather leggings.
If you’ve seen this post from back in the winter, you know I adore my green and plum floral dress from Zaful. I loved wearing it in the winter (it paired perfectly with tights and booties) and I can’t wait to keep wearing it all summer – the linen fabric is perfect for warmer weather and dressy flats. I’ve had a great experiences shopping with Zaful in the past and here are some of the things I’ve learned:
· Sizing can be a bit tricky – some of the items (including the mauve top I linked above) are listed as one size, which does not mean one size fits all. In my experience, one size items usually fit a US size 6-8 comfortably. That said, I’m normally between a US 2-4, so these items fit me with a bit of room, which I like, especially in a loose fitting dress like the embroidered one above. For other sizes, they do indicate the US size equivalent, which from my experience has been very closer. That said, always take a look at the fabric to get a sense of whether the item will have any stretch or not, as this can also make a difference.
· They provide a good sense of the time it will take for items to arrive – previous orders I’ve made arrived in a reasonable timeframe, which is not always the case with international retailers.
· The quality of previous items I’ve ordered was definitely better than I anticipated – see this post for more information.
