Fashion Review : SheIN $100 Budget

Welcome to another fashion review with SheIN. I want to start doing a $100 fashion budget for my youtube reviews. This year I want to be stylish with a HiLow budget. Subscribe to my youtube channel. Help a sister ministry, it is free to subscribe

I am wearing SheIN Solid Asymmetrical Neck Tee for $8.49.This top fit perfectly and it stretches very well to provide comfort to the upper part of the body. In simple word you can BREATHE lol.  I am wearing a size Large. Pay close attention to SHEIN sizes, it is very important when shopping online. Normally I wear a size Medium but for SHEIN I bought one size up to make sure it fit properly. Do you see my gorgeous mini Random Crocodile Pattern Bum Bag? I love it and it is only $6.8o. This is my first time buying a cheap bag like this one. The quality is amazing and it is very soft. Very surprise by the quality!!!!



This SHEIN Snake Skin Print Cami Bodysuit is giving me life for $7 now (note I bought mine for $5.95). I paired it up with a SHEIN leather skirt and threw on a Ralph Lauren coat.  This is a perfect look for a date night just chilling without making too much effort! I got you boo !

I am wearing Double Breasted Solid Blazer and this is my least favorite item and it cost me $17.  I do not like the material for this blazer, it can be compared to a piece of paper seriously speaking. The color is catching to the eye , but the material is very poor. Although the stitching is perfect. I can predict that it would wash in bad condition. By the time it comes out from the washer, I would not recognize it (I do not have that time to be running to a dry cleaner ). I do not recommend this item at all.  SKIP!

Love, love, love Letter Print Panel Outerwear for $13. The length is perfect, for me it is up to my knee and I am 5.34″ petite Bae. It is so soft and the fabric stretches too. If you want a simple weekend casual then this a perfect purchase for you. Note that the newspaper writing cover the whole back and one hand in the front.

The Leopard Print Pocket Decoration Corduroy Blouse  for $14 is a must buy for the cold season. It is made with a velvet like material or feel like velvet. But on SHEIN site, it state on their description box that is 100% polyester.  The cheetah double pockets are real and they make this “corduroy blouse” stand out. Love this piece a lot. 100% recommend you buy it too.


Drumroll….The final outfit is my number one piece in my closet   SHEIN Pearl Beaded Mesh Sleeve Form Fitting Dress for $11 now (I got my $13). This dress fit like a glove and girl it stretches very well. The pearls  make you look classy. Girl you know you can never go wrong with a black dress.  Again I bought size L because of the difference in the brand measurement compared to the standard US size. SHEIN is a Chinese brand if you wondering but they distribute to different parts of the world. 

Other items I bought where earrings as shown in the pictures and video. If you click on the links below it will direct to each item.

Open Rectangle Textured Drop Earrings

Leopard Pattern Geometric Drop Earrings

I was slightly over my budget and it was hard not to add more items. I spent a total of $101.58 including express shipping. Do not pay for express shipping because the item will still come late.

I did my makeup by myself and I am proud of this look. Do you like it ? Comment below!

Miss Nigeria International is a USA based Beauty Pageant that aims to empower young Nigerian women beyond beauty.

Vanessa is hosting Miss Nigeria International (MNI) 2018 to help women understand the importance of education, making use of their creativity and becoming  solid entrepreneurs.

“I have learned that there are a lot of misconception about women that pursue their dreams to become beauty queens.”

Critics focus on :

  • Body size : The normal expectation of the industry  focuses on a certain body type and height. MNI 2018 is here to encourage ladies to go beyond their beautiful  faces or bodies.  This is why she made it a  priority to have a physical trainer during the week of MNI beauty pageant to help each girl maintain a healthy body size.

 

  • Beauty Manners :She emphasized  that every woman should behave as a queen in their every day life. Let’s imagine, Queen Elizabeth fighting on the street or we hear her using obscene words in public. I do not think anyone will give her the respect that she deserve worldwide. This is the same way women should behave no matter the circumstances. Try to protect your image in public and control the words that come out of your mouth. Especially in social media , it breaks my heart to see how some ladies portray themselves online. This images are going to be online forever and that can be detrimental to their future. I am not saying I am perfect but I want women to learn from our mistakes and have a better tomorrow.

 

  • Build a solid future : I’m happy to see the “Melanin popping ” trend  started.  I believe is a great way to accept women especially our Black/African women that are interested in the beauty Industry. A friend once asked me “Is beauty pageant still a thing ? ” and I replied yes ! It will always be a thing. Because as the future unveils it self, we are getting women from all works of life that are investing great resources to improve the beauty pageant lifestyle- for both contestant and winners of any platform.
