If you can believe it, you can beweave it.

Or sew it. Or something like that.

Y'ALL, this dress.  $20.00 bucks annnnnd it has pockets.  Dresses with pockets are probably up there at the very top of on my “favorite things” list. (Along with sweats suit pants WITH pockets and chicken buffalo dip. Not necessarily in that order.)

So I ordered several things from SheIn about a month ago and they did not disappoint.  Everything I received was just as I expected, if not better.  I did read the reviews for the items I wanted before I ordered which definitely helped (I always do that – look at photos people post, read through comments about sizing, etc).  Just know that your order takes about 2 or so weeks to arrive. But for the price, I’m perfectly fine with that.

I received this dress about 2 weeks ago and it’s been hanging on my clothes rack.  As soon as I tried it on I knew it needed altering but I hadn’t ordered in my new sewing machine yet.  I’ve been thinking about getting a new sewing machine for some time and I finally bit the bullet and bought one (amazon prime yo). I’ve had it about a week and a half and have used it 3 or 4 times already – I bought it to alter and tailor clothing, so it has already come in handy.  I absolutely love it. 

Yesterday I decided to tackle this dress – it was pretty easy although the fabric is not cotton – it’s a little thicker and has a sheen to it, so I wanted to take my time.  It turned out perfect.  I took in the bust by hand and then I hemmed the bottom by about 5 inches. 







I also ordered this two piece outfit below, which I was in love with – so cute and so summer-y.  And $31.00!  The top doesn’t have bra sewn in so you’re on your own there, but nothing a little fabric tape couldn’t remedy.  The fabric is actually kind of a thick linen type fabric and I chose the hottest evening to take photos, of course.  Yay me.  I was sweating balls.  (P.S. the top has a long side and a short side – the short side goes in front.  You’re welcome.)









And lastly, the heels are Steve Madden (last summer).

And now, you know everything.
