Choker dress :: Suede wedges


The choker trend is everywhere from fashion to accessories and I am personally a fan. I stumbled upon this dress online and fell in love immediately. For under $20, I didn't expect the quality to be amazing. As is, the dress didn't do anything for me. Online reviews are true, it runs really big (I ordered a size XS). I have never altered anything from Shein because let's be honest, their stuff is not worth it. However, I love this dress so much that I decided to spend extra money to make it work. I had both sides of the dress taken in. The overall length also has been shortened. I spent almost $40 on alterations (double the cost of the dress) but love the end results. I dress very basic and sometimes, it's great to have one of those stand-out pieces in the closet. I wore it out to dinner once and got compliments all night long. I also wanted to mention that the dress is not lined. It's a bit see through. To solve the problem, I wore this underneath and am completely covered. I will be the first to admit that Shein is definitely hit or miss but that's why I am here to give you my honest reviews. Forever 21 has a super similar version if you don't want to order from Shein. Happy Monday, ladies! Outfit details: c/o Shein dress | Tom Ford sunglasses | Steve Madden wedges | Saint Laurent clutch | Michele watch | Marc Jacobs lipstick in slow burn
