Shoe Review: Snakeskin Print Ankle Boots from Shein

Shoe Review: Snakeskin Print Ankle Boots from Shein

**Shein did not sponsor this post and I was not compensated by anyone (cash or gift) for writing this article. I spent my own money shopping at Shein.

I guess you can say, I am where the wilds things are. Ha! This month I wanted to unleash my inner animal with a fierce print. Anyway I have been taken a liking to the snakeskin look. Shirts, boots, jackets.. I am loving it. What I am really enjoying the most are the snakeskin boots trend. I had to get me pair, but where could I get me a pair with out breaking the bank.

Over the weekend I received my very own snakeskin boots from Shein! If you are not familiar with this online retailer, let me spill the tea. Shein is an online based retailer that has really affordable clothing, accessories, and more. This retailer is based in China and yes it is a legit website to order from. Since I am a budget friendly blogger, I try to find retailers that cater to my size (plus size) and have affordable pieces. Shein does that for me.

To be totally honest, Shein can be hit or miss sometimes. You can find a really good quality piece and then the next time it can be a buss. Understand this, you definitely get what you pay for when you order. Honestly, I can’t beat the price point! So hey I am loving Shein and willing to take the risk from time to time. I will suggest to read the description of the product and reviews help too.

This time around I have hit the jackpot… these boots are bomb. I received so much love, I thought it would be cool to write a small review. On today’s blog post we are going to talk about the style, quality, and comfortability of these boots!  I will rate the boot from 1 OUT OF 5, 5 BEING THE BEST! You already know I like them but we are doing to dive in deeper!

From Shein I got a pair of faux snakeskin ankle boots that feature a point toe, chucky heel, and a side zipper. Immediately after opening the box, I was in love with the style of shoe. The pointed toe, and the print makes the shoe so edgy! It can be styled up or down in my opinion. Also the chucky heel is perfect. I feel secure when I walk on them. It was just what I was looking for in a snakeskin boot. It has edgy, fierce, and sophistication to them. I would rate the STYLE of the shoe at 5!

The snakeskin material is made out of PU (polyurethane) material with a rubber outer sole. This boot does not have a texture to touch on them, something I do wish it had to give it a more realistic quality to them. The zipper functions well, it is easy to zip up and that is a plus.  Lastly, the color is beautiful and realistic. I would rate the QUALITY  of the shoe at 4.8 ! 

I order these boots in a size EUR 40, which is equivalent to size 10 US.  When I initially took the shoes out the box I was in love but, a bit worry that they were not going to fit right because of my wide feet. So I proceeded to try on the boot on my left foot, the problematic side.  To my surprise they fit nicely. I have room in the front so my toes can breath. On the flip side, the shoes fit a bit tightly around my heel but they are doable. Sidenote: I think I would have to break these boots in to help eliminate the tightness in my heel.  I would rate this shoes COMFORTABILITY at 4.7!

Lastly, the price point of the boot is $30 on the website. Not bad at all! In my opinion this is great price point for a trendy boot. FashionLayn gives her stamp of approval!

Prints X PaperBag Waist with Eloquii

Prints X PaperBag Waist with Eloquii

Eloquii has done it again ! I was gifted this beautiful  skirt after attending the Grand Opening Eloquii Party in Novi.  Whimsical print right ? Eloquii continue to bring us stunning prints and beautiful skirts.  This print is so “IT” for summer!. The color alone is gorgeous and super excited  to get my hands on it.  I love anything that brings a different vibe to the floral prints. (i love floral aesthetics)  This dress is apart of Eloquii’s botanical collection!  I am for it ! Then the paper bag waist effect !  Lastly this has been on trend. Either you catch this on shorts, skirts and pants. I think this such a cute element brought to the waistline. This A line skirt is perfect for any curvy girl looking to accentuate their waistline. So yeah I am in love with the skirt! The only thing I would have to say about this skirt that it does get wrinkly fast.

little sidenote:

 it has been so hard trying to keep myself going and motivated. as a woman i really get  down on myself. when i get down then i am unmotivated, and when i am unmotivated then i get behind on things that are important.. like my blog.  stressed  lately i have been so overwhelmed… when they say money is the root of all evil.. they were not lying. money troubles is definitely bringing me down and affecting how i move. i am almost 30 and i still don’t have it together yet. it really bugs me when i have to ask my parents for money. or i have to decline going somewhere because i just don’t have it. 

so i decided to take a small step back. i have to remind myself that you don’t have to spend all the time to have a good time. maybe this is what GOD is trying to tell me. so i  continue to budget myself, save my money and tell myself that you don’t have to spend all the time. you can find frugal ways to enjoy your life.  life certainly does not stop for anybody but i am not gonna stop living my life because money is an issue. this month and everyday is about joy. i don’t want to let anything stop me from living my life fully or blocking my joy. so this message is to all my ladies feeling overwhelm… keep pushing on ! don’t let anything , even yourself get in your way.  if you can dream it you definitely can do it. keep your joy.

if you can dream it, you an do it

Midi Skirt with Paper Bay Waist with Slits// Eloquii

Twist FrontCrop Tee// Shein

Again this skirt is everything ! Since this print was so bold I wanted to pair it with a plain top. I had the plan to pair with a black shirt, however I changed my mind. I wanted to bring out the white in the skirt so I put on a white crop top. I took a casual approach with this skirt and I do think you can dress it all the way up!

Special shoutout to Eloquii for always keeping us on our toes with their beautiful pieces !

Plus Size Fashion for Budget Friendly Woman

Plus Size Fashion for Budget Friendly Woman

When I go shopping I like to have $100 dollars to spend. At the end of a nice shopping day I want to come out with a lot of bags ! I want my $100 to stretch. Do you feel me ! Like getting 1 or 2 items with $100 is good but I really don’t feel successful. I want to see the fruits of hard shopping day. So how can we make our money stretch for us. Now I am aware that plus size clothing can be somewhat expensive. I like to say the more material they use the more expensive the item is. So yes it makes hard for my curvy girls to find affordable clothing! 

So I decided to compile list of few places that I think my curvy sis would appreciate. A few places they can find classic or trendy clothes without BREAKING THE BANK. Facts! I know for a fact that we do not to need to buy expensive things for validation or just to feel at your best. In all honesty I am a broke and being a blogger does not go hand and hand. It hard trying to maintain my bills, work and and full time blog. So I have to find ways to make my dollar work for me! I know I am not the only one trying save money.

Loving yourself is inexpensive medicine

little sidenote:

be comfortable in your skin. it is a struggle however i get better at this the older i get. being comfortable with yourself and not in search of validation. this summer i want my curvy ladies to focus on being comfortable in there own skin and not looking for someone to tell you how you should feel. Don’t trade your authenticity for approval.  You are enough ! 

even if it makes other uncomfortable.. I will love who I am !

Okay lets get into the outfit. So I was coming back from Mexican town with my mom. She wanted to stop at this store called Simply10.  **sideeye** Simply10 is not everywhere however this store will remind you of Dots or Rainbow. Now this store is in the hood and I hate stopping at the strip mall because it not really the safest places on the planet. Anywho we stop and I was super guarded. Also, I felt like man I already got my cheap store that I shop in and this is not going to work for my body.  Sis I was wrong, I went in the store I had a bunch of stuff in my hand including this set. I tried on this set and I went into to orbit. Matching sets are so in this summer. I have such a hard time finding a set because a lot of store like to sell the pieces together. I small at the top so I would need a 1X for the top and 2X for the bottom. I got to the counter and the cashier told that will be $21.20. I was like YESSSSSSS. I love to get larger amount of change back! Anywho this places doesn’t have a specific site where you can get this exact however all the places are listed are selling inexpensive matching sets together and separately.

So my whole point for this post is to express that you do not need to spend lots of money on your curvy clothes. If you have sense of style and know how to hook your stuff up you will always be fashionable. Its nothing wrong with being frugal with your money and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
