Review – Clothing and Accessories

I received these items complimentary in order to facilitate my review.  All content and opinions are entirely my own.  See our Disclosure Statement for more information.

This is my second review of, a budget-friendly clothing and accessory website.  After my first review, I figured out a few things. First, I need to order two sizes up.  The sizes on the website run very small. I also found that while each item does have its own sizing guide, most items are thin/sheer and I prefer to layer a tank top underneath.

My first order arrived fairly quickly, especially considering that ships from China. This order took around a month for me to receive.  So, plan accordingly if you do decide to order.

I was allotted $50 of merchandise.  These are the items I ordered, along with cost and a general review:

Pure Color Ruffled Women’s T-Shirt ($7.73)

Sammydress Review #2

I chose this top because I love the color and it looks comfortable.  I could tell from the photo on the website that it would be sheer, but the front has two layers so it’s actually not too bad.  I’ll pair this with a cardigan or sweater.

Leopard Print Shirt ($3.79)

Sammydress Review #2

This was the final item I chose just to use up the credit I had available to me.  It’s a bit different than what I would normally wear.  It is sheer and I while I like it, the pockets are not sewn on evenly at all.  I’m not one for sewing, so I plan to donate this and hope someone else will get some use out of it.  There are quite a few buyers who posted their own photos of this shirt and it looks really nice in most of those, so I’m not sure what happened with mine.

Floral Embroidered Kaftan Top ($16.37)

Sammydress Review #2

I chose this because it looked like it would be very comfortable, yet stylish.  It is actually very comfortable and the material is heavier which is nice too!

Starfish Layered Necklace ($2.00)

Sammydress Review #2

This is another filler item for me.  I like the design of this one! The jewelry prices are very low and the items are usually made of “base metal.”  If you are sensitive to metals, I would avoid the jewelry.  Unfortunately, this item is sold out.

Bat Sleeve Jewel Neck Pure Color T-Shirt  ($5.60)

Again, another shirt that I chose based on the fact it looked comfortable and could be layered easily.  At the time of this post, I have still not received this item butit has been shipped.  I think most colors of this top are sold out now as well.

Hollow Out Lace Spliced Summer Dress ($8.46)

Sammydress Review #2

I wasn’t going to buy this because I thought it might be too sheer, but a customer posted a photo of herself in it and I really liked it.  It does have two layers which helps with the sheerness. It’s fairly well made, but I did notice that one of the straps is sewn on upside-down.  I’ll probably use this as a beach cover up!

Elephant Paisley Round Beach Throw ($5.93)

Sammydress Review #2

I ordered my mom a flamingo version of this from the related website and just had to have one of my own.  The one I got for my mom is much heavier than this one.  This one is made of very sheer, scarf-like material.  I actually have no idea when/how/if I’ll use this.

Once again, my own personal experience with has been good overall.  If you decide to check out the website for yourself just keep in mind to order a size or two up, expect items might be sheer, and be prepared for the possibility that it may take up to a month to get your items.

Dresslily Review – Accessories and Home Items

I received these items complimentary from Dresslily in order to facilitate my review.  As always, all opinions and content are my own.  See our Disclosure Statement for more information.

Dresslily is another budget-friendly clothing and accessory company located in China.  They also carry home items.  I recently ordered $50 in merchandise from Dresslily to review.  Here is what I received:

Crochet Shark Tail Mermaid Blanket ($22.25)

Shark Tail Blanket

My son is obsessed with sharks and blankets so choosing this item was a no-brainer for me.  It is really soft and seems to made ok.  I’m hoping it ill last him awhile.  It’s really long and will be huge for him, so adults should be able to fit these just fine.

Hemp Flowers Women’s Knitted Headband ($3.01)

Knitted Head Warmer

This is actually really well made.  I don’t see any loose threads and I’ve stretched it out and it’s stayed nice and tight.  It fits great as well.

Flamingo Round Beach Throw ($10.68)

Flamingo Throw

This was another item I had to get!  It can be used as a beach throw, tablecloth, blanket…whatever you want really.  I chose this item to gift to my mom.  My parents live in Florida and my mom has a flamingo room!  This is NOT a towel.  The material feels like satin-y bed sheets.

Flamingo Print Handkerchief Scarf ($3.58)

Flamingo Handkerchief

Again, I chose this to gift to my mom.  I don’t know what she will use it for but she’s pretty creative so I’m sure she will think of something. It’s a really pretty print and again, seems to made pretty well!

Winter Warm Stripe Fringe Edge Scarf ($11.13)

Winter Warm Striped Fringe Edge Scard

This is all for me!  I am freezing as I’m typing this!  My fiance keeps the house so cold so I’m always in a hoodie, wrapped in a blanket, or wearing a scarf. I love the color and pattern on this one and had to have it!  The only issue with this entire order was that this scarf arrived smelling terrible.  I washed it immediately, even before photos, because it was so bad.  The odor came out and the scarf held together great!

Overall I’ve had pretty good luck ordering from Dresslily!  A few things to know before ordering:

  1.  If you buy clothing, order 1-2 sizes up.  Use the sizing charts for each individual item.
  2. Expect that clothing may be on the sheer side, so plan to layer a tank top, leggings, or a slip underneath.
  3. Shipping can take much longer than you are used to.  While one of my orders arrived very quickly considering it was coming from overseas, most of my other orders have taken around a month and have arrived in multiple packages.

Rosegal Review: Clothing, Accessories, and Jewelry

I received these items complimentary from Rosegal in order to facilitate my review.  All content and opinions are 100% my own.  See our Disclosure Statement for more information.

Rosegal is a budget-friendly clothing and accessory company.  They carry clothing items for men and women as well as accessories, shoes, and jewelry.  Rosegal is based in China.

There are a few things you should know before ordering.  First, the sizing is much smaller than U.S. sizing.  I normally wear a medium.  After my last review of the related company, Sammydress, I realized that I would be better off ordering 2 sizes up, rather than 1 like I did for those items. Look at the measurement charts for each item!  Next, shipping can take much longer than you are expecting.  My Sammydress order came really quickly, but this Rosegal order took about 3 weeks. And finally, the material tends to be thin/see through and you may want to wear layers. Be sure to take that into account when choosing your size.

My Items

Women’s Striped Top and Briefs Two-Piece Bikini

Rosegal Review

Rosegal Review

The material is actually heavier than I was expecting.  I ordered XL.  Both pieces fit as expected, however, the bottoms are a bit too “cheeky” for me personally.  Cost: $14.01

V-neck Half Sleeve Letter Print Cover-Up

Rosegal Review

This is a one size fits all item which made me a little nervous but it fit great.  It is sheer, but it’s a beach coverup so that’s fine with me.  It also seems to be fairly well made!  Cost: $12.61

Scoop Collar Long-Sleeve Lace Spliced Cut Out Sweatshirt

Rosegal Review

Rosegal Review

First, this is not a sweatshirt like you would think.  It’s a thin long-sleeved t-shirt.  I actually love this.  I will layer a tank under it, but it’s comfy and cute.  The lace only has one stitch around it so I’m not sure how it will hold up after washing it a few times, though.  Cost: $7.87

Strip Pattern Tassel Scarf

Rosegal Review

 I ordered this in white which is sold out now, but other colors are still available.  This is another item that I’m really happy with.  It’s made fairly well and should last a while, especially since I have so many scarves that I don’t wear the same one all the time. Cost: $7.45

Black Irregular Triangle Pattern Voile Bib Scarf

Rosegal Review

Rosegal Review

Rosegal Review

I love the pattern.  This is a very thin, delicate material.  I did have a tiny snag in mine and the seam looks like it was pulled on one end as well.  Neither are noticeable and I will still wear this.  Cost: $4.46.

Hollowed Tassel Circle Earrings

Rosegal Review

The description on these states they are made from “base metal.”  I’m not sure what that is exactly.  I wore them for a couple hours with no irritation, though.  Love the design. Cost $1.67

Circle Strip Dangle Drop Earrings

Rosegal Review

These are the same base metal as the pair above.  Love these too.  Cost $1.03

Faux Suede Cut Out Tree Bracelet

Rosegal Review

This is a cute little bracelet.  It looks like it will hold up okay and is nicer than I was expecting for the cost.  Cost: $0.79

 Overall I’m happy with the items I chose.  With such incredibly low costs, you can definitely expect the items to be reflective of that.  My own personal experience has been pretty good so far and while I wouldn’t shop here for all my clothing, it’s still a good budget-friendly option.  I have found so far that clothing websites like Rosegal and Sammydress are best for accessories, jewelry and bags.  I’ve only received one swimsuit but it was pretty decent material as well.

I hope this Rosegal review helps you decide if this is a website you want to order from.  You can check out the thousands of items available at
