Yesstyle Dress Review

    About a month ago I was scrolling down my facebook feed when I noticed that Yesstyle was holding a dress giveaway. I was a bit curious so I clicked through the link and found it very easy to sign up. All my information was already plugged in thanks to fb and all I needed to do was pick a dress that I liked. The dress I chose was this Two-Tone Belted Sleeveless Dress from Tokyo Fashion. Little did I know, I received an e-mail about a week later stating that I had won! Shocking right? I was beyond excited since now I could try an item out from Yesstyle without any risk!
   I had always wanted to try out yesstyle, but have always been hesitant because I have heard many varying stories about these online asian stores. Yesstyle seemed to have quite a lot of positive reviews, but there were some scary negative stories out there and I did not want to deal with that. Plus the shipping fees were high and in order to get free shipping I needed to spend over $150!! (Not going to happen with my high school budget hehe!)  The dress I got reminded me a lot of a dress I got from Dailylook, but just in a different color. Here is what the I got looked like vs. the model photos -

1st photo is actual. Top right is the model. Bottom left is me!

  I would say that that overall the dress looks a lot like the stock photos. The only thing that I found to be off was the color. The black was correct, but I expected a beige/yellow tinted dress where instead the dress was more of a light gray/beige color. I think the stock photo was a bit tinted yellow, but I honestly did not mind. The measurements of this dress also matched up correctly which is good because it only came in 1 size! I was a bit afraid when ordering this dress because a lot of stuff on Yesstyle are made for smaller bodies which I don't quite fit the mold of.
The
 The measurements of this dress were-

Total Length: 78cm / 30.7", Bust: 87cm / 34.3", 
Waist: 72cm / 28.3", Hem Width: 42cm / 16.5", 

My waist is smaller than the measurement given and it was a near perfect fit so I am not sure if a 28 inch waist would fit in this dress to be honest. The material is stretchy though so it might work. One thing about this dress that was a bit off on my body in comparison to the model was the length!!! (Don't worry, I had my racing shorts on while taking these photos) The dress was 30 inches, long but on my body, it felt shorter. I think maybe it had something to do with my hips/butt/lower body. There wasn't any measurement given for hips, but I knew beforehand that my lower body was most likely bigger than your average model. The dress still fits, but I need to be careful when walking in it. I would prefer though for the bottom half to be a bit looser and longer.

The material to this dress was actually amazing! It was stretchy and thick which makes it durable. Trust me, this dress was not your typical forever 21 bodycon dress material. With this material, I knew that I could put this dress through my washing machine numerous times without worrying about whether or not the it would be ruined. If you own any clothing from f21, you probably know what I am talking about. I've had a shirt from there that looked like it was eaten alive by my washing machine!

The price of this dress isn't the best in my opinion. This dress cost $79.20 which is way to high in my opinion. Although the quality is way better than many stores here, the price shouldn't be this high. However, I did notice the sales/clearance section on the site and there the prices seem a lot more reasonable and affordable. If I were to order again from them, I think the sales is where I am going to get most of my items!

To style this dress, I chose to wear a set of bangles and a pair of my lovely heels. The heels are a beige/black/gold color so I thought it would work perfectly with the outfit! I also went ahead and redid my purple manicure!

My Tips If You Plan On Shopping From Yesstyle -
- Measure yourself before shopping. A lot (most) items have measurements listed and it seems that the clothing is true to sizing. Measuring yourself beforehand saves time looking through clothes that would not fit.
- Keep in mind your body type. For me, I realize that dresses might end up tighter/shorter on me than the model because of my hips. 
- Also remember that the photo's might be edited so colors might not come as you expected. 
-Shop in the Sales section. The sale section is priced much reasonably and they still contain many cute items!
-Try to get free shipping, maybe buy with a group of friends?... this tip explains itself! 
- Don't stress out if you can't find what you like or fits because they're a lot of other stores out there with adorable clothes!

***This might be my last post for a while. (Don't worry I will be back hehe) My cousin has invited me to come to her house this Sat. for a mini vacation till school starts on the 28th so I might not have access/time to update my blog till first week of Sept.
 Until Sat., I have to finish start AND hopefully finish my summer assignments (I don't think finishing is possible... 700+ pages to read & 30+ pages. to write.... It's my fault for not starting earlier hehe.) as well as pack for VACATION!!! ***
High School Summer Assignments
Think I can finish this work in the next 2-3 days... hehe? =)
Enjoy the rest of August everyone!!

  4. Wow. The SAT's was ages ago for me. This brings back memories - and not good ones :O)

    But love the dress on you. However, for your age, I feel that beige and black are a bit dull. Maybe shiny shoes or brilliant accessory? Regardless, the fit works for your body, and it's a lovely dress still.

  5. The dress style suits you very well ^^ Cute and cheerful pictures!!

    Yes I've order from yesstyle before, I only lie their skin products ...With clothes...they have a lot of knock offs and the quality isn't as you'd expect from the pictures. I remembering ordering a blue outfit from a korean brand from them they charged £44.00 then when it came it had a hole and the material used were very thing and poor.

  16. Love the body-hugging fit of the dress! Yesstyle is very legitimate however the downside for me would be their prices and shipping. They are basically a third party retailer... they charge way more than the retail price and what you could buy directly from the seller (provided that they ship internationally).

    1. yes, the shipping is high and I found some of their prices to be ridiculous. It would be nice to buy from the original seller for the cheaper prices, but i sometimes feel nervous doing that!

  31. too bad the fit/lengtt wasn't what you expected. That's the hard part when it comes to online shopping ;s the dress flatters your figure so well though :) I love the black outline since it adds a slimming effect to any figure <3 You have such a lovely smile :)

  38. So lucky that you won in the giveaway! I'm always hesitant to enter them because I always think " what's the point not gonna win anyway" and e dress looks great on you albeit it being a bit short, would be a great clubbing dress. I always love how cheap Asian online stores are but have always been too scared of buying anything from them too :/

      I always think that too about giveaways. I usually enter them if I see them and the entry method is easy. I hate the ones which have like 10 steps and I never enter. Its so hard to win!

  46. not a good service, if the item not available or defective they won't issue a refund. Plus they make you paid shipping to ship it back for defective item like tort, shirt had big hole on it. I'm sure not going to order from the site anymore.
