Romwe review and outfit: Part 1

Yes, I must confess, I finally jumped on the Romwe-bandwagon that has either been raved about or cursed to the pits of hades by several Bloggers and YouTubers. For those who are a little confused as to what on earth I'm rambling on about, Romwe is an women's clothing website that sells very affordable clothes, and when I say affordable, I mean as cheap as chips. It is definitely one of those stores that you either love or you absolutely loathe. Since there were plenty of miscellaneous reviews concerning Romwe, I hoped that the odds were in my favour, braced myself to expect the unexpected and bought some items that struck out to me to be the most distinctive and eye catching. Personally I found Romwe a case of a hit and miss, I was delighted with a couple of my purchases, which I have mentioned today, yet dismayed by a few others. The product I'm most impressed with is a crimson midi skirt with a jacquard texture, which I found to live up to my expectations since it turned out to be faithful to image online. The material is very thick and the stitching isn't likely to unravel any time soon based on face value. The second purchase was love at first sight, a plaid shirt that looks like one of my brother's shirts that I might have shrunk to my size in the wash, yet whether it was what I’d anticipated is questionable since it seems to be identical in appearance yet the feel of it can be a little irritating on the skin, but certainly a sensation one can get used to. In today’s post I wanted to share the aforementioned two successful purchases that I formed an outfit combination with…

  1. I recently jumped onto the Romwe train as well! Like you, it was hit or miss. I love one of my items and am really bummed about the other one. Good thing I got it all for fairly cheap because of the holiday sales.

    1. Thank goodness you did..such a shame, that anticlimactic moment when that one item comes out pear-shaped! Not to mention the sizing, I felt like I'd eaten a mammoth meal beforehand when I tried on some of the items.

  2. Aha! the blazer strikes again! You weren't kidding when you said it went with everything in your wardrobe! ;) And yes, it was going to happen, Romwe's prices are hard to ignore forever. After seeing ad after ad in my fb newsfeed I finally caved a week and a half ago. My order hasn't arrived yet but I bought a really pretty white dress that would have probably been three times as much from any other shop. And I'm extremely picky with dresses even in 'better quality shops' but I really liked one! So when they put 60% off of their SALE PRICE for newcomers it would have been madness not to buy it. We shall see...

    1. Yes, i like to think of my tendency to rely on this blazer as a product of my uniform wearing years. It's impossible to abstain from those relentless ads... and it has that appeal to bargain hunters like ourselves. Feel the need to warn you about the fact it takes donkey's years to arrive and beware the sizing! Haha you'll have to show me the dress when i return to manchester!
