Sammydress Haul + Giveaway

   21 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS! (3 weeks!) 

About a month ago, I was approached by Sammydress to do a review and sponsor a giveaway on my blog. I watch a good deal of youtube videos and read blogs so I already have heard of Sammydress. I was interested in trying them out, but like with any foreign online store, I get nervous about the fit and quality of their clothes. So when I was approached by Sammydress to get anything any items totaling under $20 to review, I jumped on the opportunity! I have heard mixed reviews about the site and after my own experience, I would say that my experience at Sammydress would have to be a positive one! I got all the items I ordered, and for the most part, they matched their stock photos.  (clicking on photo or caption will bring you to the item on the site =)

Sammydress Haul

One thing that interested me was the way that my clothes were packaged. They weren't shipped to me in a box, but rather a bag. It was a tinier bad than I expected and when I saw how small the bag was, I thought that there was no way all my items fit in there.. but it did! I kinda liked the packaging like this though as I feel like it uses less materials and is more environmentally friendly.

The first item I got is this lovely mint colored cardigan. As you can tell from the pictures, it does closely resemble the stock photos. The knitting and color matches really well. In fact, the knitting is done really well. It's very thick and perfect for winter. I love the way it feels on my skin and the color is just beautiful. The only thing about this cardigan that threw me off was the size though that is probably my fault. On the site, it mentioned that this cardigan was "one size." Seeing how this was from an Asian store and Asian clothing sizes are a bit smaller than other countries, I assumed that the "one size" would either fit me or be too small... Well I was wrong about this. The  cardigan was actually quite big/baggy on me (as it also does on the model) and while it still looked cute, I prefer tighter fit cardigans. I really wish it was a better fit on me because I would totally snatch it for myself, but instead, I will be giving it to my mommy! She really likes the color and she looks beautiful in it!

The second item I chose to get was this pair of stockings. I have been dying to get a pair of stockings lately but I have not come across one that I like. So when I saw that I could get one from Sammydress, I chose to get it. The pair that I chose to get is black with polka dots. I really like the stockings I got and it matches the picture perfetly. I personally don't think you can go wrong with stocking though hehe.

The next two pieces I got are jewelry pieces. I had With the stockings and the cardigan, I was under $20 and needed something else so I asked my sister for help. I asked her what she liked and told her that she would be able to keep whatever she picked. She chose her favorite jewlery piece which was this necklace. It's a pendant shaped as a flower. The petals of the flower are rhinestones in many colors. I really love the way the rhinestones look on the necklace. They don't really look like rhinestones, but rather real gems! The chain for this necklace is very thin, but sturdy. My sister doesn't like chunky chains so this one was perfect!

The last piece I got was one chosen by my sister and I. We had I think about 1.50 or so left to spend so as we looked through the jewelry  online, this adorable ring caught my eye. It's a dainty ring with a butterfly shaped crystal in the center. I noticed in the stock photos on the site that the butterfly seemed to catch the light very nicely and the little charm dangling was so cute which is why I chose to get it. After receiving the ring, I would have to say that it is very much like the stock photos as well. It catches the light a lot better than I imagined. When the light hits the crystal, you can see a lot of colors inside the crystal. It's super pretty!

Summary-
Site- I would say that that Sammydress is 100% legit. This is based on my own experiences though because I have read about people not receiving the items that they ordered. I would just be cautious of what you are ordering and not to spend too much on each order you put out.
Quality- I think the quality of the items you get really depend on what you choose to buy. For the most part, my items were good quality and did resemble their stock photos. I would say that the jewelry has some of the best quality on the site. The clothes are what I would say are forever 21 type quality, but for a bit cheaper!
Shipping- The shipping is slightly a downside for the site. I chose standard shipping and it took a little under 3 weeks to get here. It's not bad, but just as a warning to you guys, if you need an item quickly, you should probably avoid this site. However if you have lots of time to wait, and want cheap/cute items, go for it!
Tips- Look for deal/coupon codes! They are always available!
          Don't spend too much on each order and pay attention to the shipping price b/c it could get high pretty quickly!
          Look for reviews of the item before ordering if they are available! =)
