In all honesty this was surprisingly my first time ordering from Sheinside and I'll admit it that it all started because of my love for these asymmetrical shorts/skort that's been surfacing everywhere! The best part about them is you could pair them with almost any outfit and ba-bam! you're outfit will instantly become fab haha! Okay so done with the spazzing about this item, time to get serious and now to the review. Dun Dun Dunnn...
I absolutely loved the way they packaged the item! It was sealed in a nice bag with a re-sealable zipper thingy ma-jiggy at the top. The front was a fabric layer and it displayed the Sheinside logo on it and the back was transparent plastic (this bag was inside your usual grey packaging bag). Needless to say I was impressed by their packaging and that's what counts!
I did the standard shipping to the United States so the cost was free. However, they estimated shipping to be approximately 5-10 working business days and unfortunately it took longer than that to receive my order. They provided two different types of tracking number...the first one was a short 6-character length one and I was not able to track my item with that. Instead I just logged on to my Sheinside account and tracked the progress through the 'my orders' section; the second tracking number they provided I was able to track my order with ease. There was a weird moment in the shipping of my order that I noticed while I would track my item although I would blame it more on the shipping company/service I suppose. At some point my order was tracked to be just 2-hours from where I live and I was so stoked that I would receive my order the next day. Next morning I tracked my item and it was sent to another state and because of that it ended up taking a lot longer than it should have to arrive.
Technically if you compare the price of this which I got for approximately $18-$19 (I used a 20% off discount code on the original $23.23) to the price of Zara's and many other providers than it really wasn't so shabby. In this situation it sort of depends on what kind of budget you have. The price wasn't so shabby with the discount code!
My only major complaint is that the zipper is crazy stubborn! It's almost like it didn't want me to wear the it but to instead just admire them ha. Likewise, I feel like there should have been a little "hook" thing above the zipper (that you usually see on a lot of dresses and what not) to secure it a little more in case you were to bend down and the zipper unzips itself. Although I guess in my case since my zipper is sort of stubborn that probably won't happen. Nonetheless, I'm probably going to sew the "hook" piece onto the short/skort. Other than that, that overall quality was relatively nice!
