My Shein Wish List *All Under $20*

Scroll to Bottom for Wish List! This post is NOT sponsored.

www.shein.com

I don’t really want to tell you this little piece of information because it helps me look like a big baller even though I’m not (did I just say that?). But since you guys are my people, today I’ll open up about my love of Shein.com.  I have to be honest, I don’t know much about Shein’s background, but what I do know is that it’s where I get most of my clothing under $10, and I would be devastated if one day this website did not exist. Everyday discounts, good quality, and FREE returns.

In today’s world it seems like a lot of people are one-time shoppers, meaning girls will often buy an outfit “for the insta” and then never re-wear it. If your about that, then SheIn is your place, and I would never recommend spending over $20 on an article of clothing you’re only going to wear once. When talking to other affordable fashion bloggers, I’ve found that some people are too skeptical to order from the site since it’s based in China and people are worried that the site is a scam – but let me tell you, they seem to know what they’re doing.

Distressed Skinny Jeans $18

I have an extreme attachment to SheIn because they have clothes that I would often see on designer websites, that are affordable, yet still made with quality material. Seriously, some of the leggings I have from SheIn are better quality than my leggings from Athleta, and they are almost always true to the size and color shown online. That’s not to say that a purchase will never get a hole or a rip, but luckily if it does, it’s affordable enough to purchase again.

I’m going on my second year purchasing from this site and I must say that the only downside I’ve found is that the clothes take around 3 weeks to arrive (hey, China is far away).

I can identify countless pro’s to the site though, including their weekly sales (as if the clothes weren’t cheap enough), along with their impressive customer service that gets back to me almost immediately if I ever have problems. There are many sites from

Button Placket Knot Front Cami Top: $8

China that I refuse to shop. For example, I once purchased a silver shimmery from Dresslink and received an orange T-shirt. As someone who is always willing to experiment when it comes to online shopping, you can trust me that I will NEVER be writing a review about those types of sites on my blog.

So, now that I’ve revealed my secret, here are my favorite items on the site right now all under $20. Hopefully you’re able to utilize the link in my bio and get a free bodysuit today and tomorrow, but if not, I highly suggest signing up for the email list to get notifications of deals like today’s:

Find the Right Faux Fur for You (All Under $100)

Fuzzy, furry, faux, fluffy, frilly…fur is in. Everyone has their own preferences on whether they want their coat to look shaggy or perfectly fluffed. So, here’s my guide on faux fur coats for under $100 (Everything is linked)! Coupons are saved under the ‘deals’ highlight on my Instagram so make sure to check it out before completing any faux fur purchases!

Kept Fuz Zip Ups: It’s not shedding or falling out but it’ll keep you warm even when it’s snowing and give you the control to unzip and show off a cute outfit underneath.

UO Shaila Oversized Fuzzy Jacket: $89 

I.AM.GIA Caramel Pixie Coat: $87            

SHEIN Striped Trim Faux Fur: $44            

JET John Eshaya Teddy Fur Coat: $76    

 

Kept Fuz Quarter Zips: These also don’t shed, and although you can’t show off your outfit underneath, it gives you just enough freedom to show off a stylish necklace combo and gives you the perk that you don’t have to find that perfect shirt since it’ll be covered up anyway!

Dylan Frosty Tipped Pullover: $89.99             

True Grit Tipped in Charcoal: $95.15               

*Buy Charcoal in Mens to Get Correct Oversized Fit

Personally, kept fuz zip ups are my personal favorite. They make me feel like I’m responsible enough to wear a coat out, but are also perfect to cuddle up with in my bed. Crossing my fingers that none of these sell out this time, but I love the caramel coats more than chocolate itself. Dress it up for a day in New York, or wear it to watch Netflix by yourself. The only con: my I.am.Gia. pixie coat definitely gets smelly if I don’t wash it right away. Something about the fibers definitely hold smell so just make sure you give it a wash, even if you have to sacrifice a little fluff to do so.

Cheetah Print Coats: I remember when cheetah everything was in style. But now for some reason the fluffy coats are back. And I kind of like them. I guess it’s like, while you’re being boujee, you might as well add cheetah print.

Winova Faux Fur Leopard Coat: $79.41      

Cause I’m Cozy Faux Fur Jacket: $34.99     

I have the second coat from Fashion Nova and love it. I’ve seen people wearing ones well over $100 that had a lot less poof to them. This coat really fills itself out, keeps you warm, and is super affordable!

Sherpa Lining: The item that led me to write this article. From lined vests to coats, these are nice if you get hot super easily because the fur only covers part of the material. The vests show off your outfits but the coats are unique. It’s no secret that influencers everywhere are mixing sherpa lining with suede.

Retro La La Tan Suede Jacket: $55                            

Goldie London Fur Parka Jacket: $34                    

May Logan Faux Suede Vest: $48                            

Faux Suede Sherpa Vest: $11.99                                

 

The last picture of the Faux Suede Vest from Charlotte Russe is the one from my newest Instagram photo that comes in black or brown. Not gonna lie, I’m a little bitter writing this that it went down from the $40 I originally paid, but here’s to sharing secrets. For the past few days, I’ve had my eyes on the retro la la tan. Not sure how much longer I’ll be able to stay away..

Fluffy Bunched Coats: These are great for an elegant night out. I love to put these types of coats over my dress so my shoulders don’t freeze & sometime’s they’re just what you need to tie your outfit together.

Lourdes Cream Fringe Jacket: $60                    

BerryGo  Coat (Pink/White/Black): $44.42      

Alisha Long Faux Fur Coat: $44.40                     

Whether you want a long or a short bunched coat, they’re everywhere from Lulu’s to Amazon. Here are a few of my favorites, with options varying from puffy to long and colors of pink, white, grey, and black.

Shaggy Coats: Maybe you want your style to look a little more retro or you don’t want to look so perfectly put together – shaggy coats are perfect for this, and the cheapest types of faux fur coats on the market.

Make Me Chic Collarless Coat: $34.90           

Chic Women’s Parka: $54.49                                

Posh Society Mohair Shaggy Coat: $49         

Bet you wouldn’t be able to guess from the photo’s which shaggy coat is from Walmart ;). So hopefully, this will help narrow down your faux fix. I would say the first three options are best if you’re looking for a coat to keep you warm in the colder weather, while the rest are more of a fashion statement. Feel free to pin photos in your favorite faux on my projectsweetcaroline Pinterest board & I look forward to seeing them!
