Style We

Dress: Style We | Shoes: Nine West | Bag: Michael Kors 
Bracelet: Stradivarius | Belt: The Landmark
Lips: The Face Shop Melting Lip Color in Candy Violet

Time flies fast when you are having fun! I went on a week long hiatus as I was having fun in the cool summer weather of Tokyo, Japan. I know, I know. You are probably sick and tired of my Japan travel blog entries but I can't help it! Japan has always been a dream destination of mine and now that I have a multiple entry tourist visa to Japan (tips on how to get one in one of my next posts) I can finally go to Japan as many times as I want until it expires! So now, after that fun 7 days in Japan, I have a lot of catching up to do at work and on this blog. 

I received this dress from Style We when I was in Japan and in all honesty, I was not expecting it to arrive that fast! I was under the impression they will send this dress via postal service (which can take months to arrive) but they sent it via DHL instead. I had to pay tax which is a little annoying because it was a gift (if it was sent via postal service I only have to pay the postal fee). But on second thought, I think I prefer this method because I don't have to wait for months for something to arrive and I can track my shipment. 

The Company:
Style We is an online fashion store based in China and they feature a wide selection of independent Chinese brands and designers. Style-wise, they have so much to offer. You can find something for every style. But don't compare Style We with other China-based online stores out there as with them, you are guaranteed quality and service. The designs are all unique and most items you cannot find in any other online store. 

Their goal is to create a community for designers and fashion enthusiasts to meet and help each other: for designers to provide high quality fashion to customers and for customers to feedback the designers to help them grow and build their name. 

At Style We customers are guaranteed to get high quality designs and fashion and the service that they deserve.



The Dress:
Style We allowed me to choose 1 dress from their website and I honestly had a very hard time selecting which one I like best. In the end I chose this sunflower, summer dress. I was not expecting too much about this dress. I was expecting it to have loose threads all over, no lining, and ill-fitting. I did not set my expectations too high because I might be disappointed. But lo and behold. It is the best thing I ever received from an online store! It is well-made: no loose threads, everything is stitched perfectly, zipper feels sturdy, it has lining and it just overall feels very high quality! I was appalled but delighted at the same time. I will definitely get a lot of wear from this dress. It is a tad bit big on me though but that is probably my fault because I decided to go a size bigger than my real size. I gained some weight over the past months and was thinking a medium might fit me better but turns out I am still a small. But that's okay. Entirely my fault!

I received so many compliments when I wore this dress to work. Everyone seemed to love it. I love it too and felt good wearing this dress. Aside from the nice print, the quality of the dress also felt nice. It was a rainy day when I wore it and it gave the atmosphere some color and happy feel.

The Price:
Dresses at Style We are quite expensive but for the quality and service that you get I say it is all worth it. This dress is worth $78 US but the quality and fast shipment makes it worth the $78 US. Most of the items in the website is actually quite expensive. Dresses range from $40 to hundreds of dollars but the quality and service they provide justifies the price. Plus, these are designs from independent designers and brands so the uniqueness and originality makes the price all the more justifiable.

The Shipment:
As I mentioned above, I did not expect for Style We to send the item via DHL. Though this is a sponsored post, they treated me like a regular customer which is what I want (so I can write an honest review). They shipped the item the same way they would have shipped a regular customer so I can see for myself how fast it would arrive to my house. Yes, it was delivered straight to my doorstep. Thank you, DHL! I had to pay tax which ended up to be 1,195.00PHP but that is okay. I would rather receive packages at my house than experience the hassle of going to the post office. It was sent 18 July and was initially delivered to my house on 21 July. I was impressed at the fast service as it only took 4 days! But because I was not at home and our housekeeper doesn't have the funds to pay for the tax I asked DHL to deliver on 24 July instead and they did (just that I was in Japan)! Style We made a good choice to partner with DHL for delivering their packages.

Overall:
I am really impressed with Style We and would recommend this online store to anyone who wants unique and original pieces of clothing. They have a wide assortment of designs that can cater to any style. Price is on the expensive side but the quality and service you get makes all the moolah you spent worth it. Just a few tips though:
  • Read the size guide carefully so you don't end up getting the wrong. Though they have a return policy I just don't like the hassle of sending products back and then waiting again to receive the new item. 
  • They have laundry tips posted on the side when you click on the picture of the item you are interested in. Make sure you read it carefully too so you know how to properly care for your items.
  • You will receive the item in a ziplock pouch and an authenticity card! Keep it as it might be of value to you in the future.

  30. Awesome post! I love the dress you ended up choosing, the print is definitely very eye catching and cheery. I've been on that site before and I gotta admit that they have really great designs to choose from. I haven't gotten anything yet because of the cost, but good to know that the quality makes up for it!
