Zaful Twinset and Oxfords Review

I was thinking Asian school-girl inspired outfit when I impulsively chose this striped kitten tee and colour block midi skirt twinset and wingtip round toe tie up flat shoes. Didn't turn out quite how I'd imagined.
Twinset - Zaful
The top:
I like the cute stitching of a kitten on the top, and while some of the stitching on the sleeve had come off, it was forgivable. The material was lightweight and comfortable. I would probably wear this top with a pair of shorts or a shorter, pencil-cut or bodycon skirt.
The skirt:
While I had initially chosen this twinset, I realized I didn't quite like the colour blocking print on the skirt when I actually had it in person. However, if you are more into colour and colour blocking, this might suit you. Personally, I prefer the back side to the skirt where it's all navy. The skirt is A line which starts from the waist - thus, I would match this with perhaps a cropped top or a tank top. The cut of the skirt just did not go well with the silhouette and length of its matching top.

The shoes:
While this is my 3rd pair of shoes from Zaful (see Zaful gladiator sandals and Zaful lace up sandals which I loved), this one fit too tight, was quite heavy, and the material is a bit rough.
Shoes - Zaful
Overall:
Zaful specializes in affordable fashion so all of these items are easy on the pocket. However, you do get what you pay for. And while I do have a few favorites from Zaful (see Bohemian look, casual look, and denim tie-waist dress), this set isn't one of them. So simply choose wisely and you'll actually find some favorites from Zaful.

Would you wear this outfit?


Always,
Jeanne

  12. It's nice to read honest reviews, so I really appreciate this.
    As much as I love to order and shop online, it can be hard with certain companies because it's not always easy to return.

  15. I would wear those shoes, and I would definitely do something with that shirt-- but when it comes to the skirt-- for some reason, I can't seem to get around the color orange. I don't know why. Honestly, there are hits and misses in every thing in life-- from makeup products, to the American Presidency. That is life.

  22. I love your honest review, I agree that you do get what you pay for but sometimes a bargain can be found. You live and learn, perhaps the clothing items you could wear separately?

  25. It sucks when you order something online & it’s not really what you thought it was. I guess you do get what you pay for! Thanks for the honest review. The top is cute though.

  37. I really love the shoes and the top! Too bad the shoes is heavy and rough. That's the main problem with online shopping, the image posted is usually prettier than the actual product.

  38. Stripe is the next Spring-Summer trend but actually I will never combine same sized stripe :) Blue with red reminds me of America's flag anyway ( since lately I saw some designers were inspired by America's flag for their FW'17 collection ) However, the oxford shoes looks nice, although you said that the material seems rough :(
