Like I always say with cheap, Chinese fashion, you have to be careful with sizing. I am a size 10 on top and a 12 on bottom (UK sizing, between a M-L in generic fashion) so usually go for the L or XL option.
The first item was this two piece, I bought this entirely because it was in the $0.01 sale. A playsuit I'd previously paid £12.99 was also in this sale, so I was kind of mad. I'll probably take it on holiday with me though as I can really see myself wearing it in rainy Britain. You can buy it here, I got it in size L and I probably should have got an XL because although it fits, it doesn't fit me like it fits the model. It will look cute when I've lost a few pounds and I'm hoping to before my holiday. It has a really annoying zip on the side of the top so there is four fastenings on the outfit altogether, along with both bows and a button at the back of the neck. The material is nice, kind of thin but again will look better in half a stones time.
The second item was this cute floral rucksack. It sort of reminded me of Cath Kidston and there isn't long left of the semester, so if this doesn't last long it's not a problem but I really like the pattern and colours. I paid $4.35/approximately £3 and you can get it here. They sent me the wrong colour which I'm kind of annoyed about, I wanted the white one with pink floral details so I'm going to enquire about getting some kind of partial refund. I don't mind the black though and I guess it's less likely to get dirty on the train in the mornings and I could probably use it as hand luggage or when I'm market shopping abroad.
This is the third pair of 'boyfriend' jeans I've bought in the past week or so and I'm not really sure if the style suits me. It definitely looks cute on the slim model. I paid $6.94/£4.88 and got a size XL, you can get them here. They do fit but again, not how they do on the model. I like this fit better though as I've been wearing some boyfriend jeans from boohoo and I felt like I looked like a tramp. They are very very over-ripped though and although I like it, I can't imagine myself pulling these off. I'm thinking they will be cute in the summer when I go out somewhere for the day and then for a few drinks or something. Just casual but can be dressed up, but again I feel kind of silly in them and am awaiting comments from middle aged people including "Did your jeans come like that?" or "wow your jeans need darning, don't they?".
I really liked the sunflower pattern on this playsuit and it will definitely be cute on my holiday. I got the size L and it was $5.36/£3.77. You can buy it here,
this is probably my favourite item from Dresslink this time.
Two piece tracksuits are really fashionable at the moment and I wanted this cute one for around the house. I definitely bought this at the wrong time of year though as I was expecting really thin, cheap material, but the cuffs are strong and it feels like proper tracksuit material. I got it in size XL and it was approximately £5 at $7.17. You can find this item here.
here. It cost $2.89 so was approximately £2. I have lots of brightly coloured and patterned bandeau tops so to avoid the awkward bra strap flash, I will probably wear those underneath and then really loosely tie it at the bottom of my back. If you leave it open it looks okay with leggings from the front but I'm hardly Kim K from the back so not really about that life.
