Affordable & Glamorous Sequin Outfit.

     Even though Fashion Week is associated with expensive designer clothing pieces, I didn't let that deter me from my favorite affordable retailers when I was packing my outfits! Today's blog post features my very favorite outfit that I wore for NYFW, and you won't believe the price point.
     ALSO- sharing a fun spring themed Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of this post that I'm participating in with some other bloggers, don't miss your chance to enter!

     I originally got this fun sequin dress in the fall as a possible option for NYE, and I first styled it in this blog post! I ended up wearing a long dress for my New Year's plans since my plans ended up being a  Black Tie optional event. I was hoping for another reason to wear this, and Fashion Week seemed perfect! A little while after I ordered the dress, I saw a gorgeous matching jacket from Shein as well, and I ordered that so fast! This might be the most extra and over-the-top matching dress and coat ever, but I absolutely love it. I wish I could re-wear this outfit to work... if I could I'd wear it all the time! The only note I'll make is that this dress runs quite big- normally I'm an M in Shein, but this dress is an M and was quite loose on me. But with the belt around the waste and the jacket on top- it worked just fine! 😊

    This is probably one of my favorite Shein outfits that I've ever worn on the blog, and I've worn a lot from there over the past few years! I started shopping at Shein in college, and I think the quality and selection of their items continues to get better and better each year. I have noticed that their price points have gone up slightly as well, but are still very reasonable. Plus- I'd rather pay $25 for a piece of clothing that is higher quality and will hold up better after washes than a $12 item you can only wear once or twice. While I do style Shein outfits often on the blog, I've never done a blog post reviewing Shein as a whole and sharing my shopping tips. I know other bloggers have definitely written about that, but is that a post topic that you'd still like to see from me too? PS- I normally have a Shein discount code for you to get 15% off any purchase!! My current code is 1rainbowf15 and it's good through March 31st.

    Now for the bonus fun part of this post- a spring Rafflecopter giveaway that I'm glad to be apart of with other bloggers! I'm already jealous of whoever wins this prize. You can get entries for already following me on Blog Lovin', Instagram and my blog's Facebook page!
