Please bear with me today, I might still be in a post-vacation fog. Re-entry is hard. So hard after a wonderful, romantic getaway. However, I’m back at my desk and ready to start crossing some things off of my very long list. As usual, I’m tackling the fun stuff first. Here’s my review of the online shopping platform StyleWe and the dress they recently sent me to try out.
My husband and I just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with a trip to Mexico. It was incredible! Warm sunshine, pure down-time... just what we needed. I couldn't wait to wear my new dress from StyleWe.
So...I rolled up my new StyleWe dress and tucked it into my suitcase.
I can honestly report that this little silk, floral dress was a pleasure to wear.
In my real life...not my fantasy-tropical-beach-life:-)...I rarely wear florals and hardly ever choose bright colors for my clothing. When I scrolled through the StyleWe site trying to choose a dress, this one by QinPei.er truly jumped out at me.
It seemed like a perfect choice for a romantic weekend at the beach. I actually chose three dresses and the lovely representative from StyleWe picked this one for me.
I love the soft, fluid ruffles. I love the sheer watercolor fabric. There’s something enchanting about this little dress.
I’m thrilled with my choice.
The dress traveled beautifully. No wrinkles. No static. It was just right for the breezy, tropical climate of Sayulita, Mexico.
I felt lovely wearing it on my dinner date with Matthew. The colors were perfect against the backdrop of blue skies, green palms and turquoise waters. Can you tell, I’m still in a vacation trance?
My overall thoughts on StyleWe:
I think StyleWe could be around for a quite a while. I'm thrilled with the idea of helping emerging designers get a solid start...and I think others will be, too.
The website contains some really serious talent. There are hundreds of beautiful, sophisticated, elegant garments.
Price- The entire site is filled with well-priced, unique pieces. The dress I received costs $70 U.S. I feel this price is very fair for the fabric, quality and style of the dress.
Workmanship- The quality is quite good. My dress is nicely constructed. The outer fabric is 100% silk and the knit lining is 100% polyester. All seams are well-finished and straight.
Fit- I ordered a small. The sizing information for this designer seems very accurate. It appears that each designer chooses their own sizing. The specifics are clearly stated in the description of the garment.
Shipping- My dress was shipped overnight. It took about three days to receive it after a brief hold in U.S. customs. The StyleWe site states that customers might need to allow for production time as well as shipping/delivery time. It seems that some of the garments are actually made to order. Kind of cool...a custom-made dress:-)
Overall, I feel like StyleWe might be ahead of the curve. This type of website could very well be the next big thing. Their format allows new designers to have a platform from which to reach millions of customers...without the stress of actually starting their own business.
If you are needing a dress for a summer wedding, party or just to spice up your closet, I would highly suggest that you give StyleWe a try.
Be prepared to lose track of time while trolling this site. It might take you a while to find the one perfect choice…the site is loaded with awesome pieces!
Lots of stuff on the docket for the summer. It’s time for some soul-searching and transparent authenticity...I’m going to get very real:-)
