Feeling Ethnic :: Shein.com Embroidered Loose Dress ( Featured)

Tuesday, January 26, 2016 Simone Foster 26 Comments

Hi everyone.

I hope all of you are keeping warm with the crazy changes in weather over in the States. And for those of you here in Hong Kong, experiencing chills which was last felt this cold almost 60 years ago. 

As promised in a previous post, this is the second outfit by the kind people at Shein.com who had sent me 2 outfits to showcase to my readers. If you had missed the first one, click here to read the post.


Obviously this picture was taken just before the cold snap hit. With Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day just around the corner, many of you here in Asia are starting to get new clothes and prep for the big festival. Naturally, online shopping seems to be a good way to pick up great bargains and of course, with the mercury dropping - getting new stuff from the comfort of the warmth of your homes seem to be the best bet for the moment. 


Although traditionally, wearing black on new year's is pretty much frowned upon in chinese culture, however these days many of the younger generation have broken that " rule". So why not consider this outfit which has a little ethnic influence for the new year. If you do not celebrate Chinese New Year, this is certainly a nice little black number for that romantic Valentine's Dinner with that special someone. Great length, perfect with heels and an easy to go from Dinner to Drinks/ Dance after outfit.



Am loving the embroidered detailing on the hemline of this loose dress. It was cut loose and pretty A-line in shape therefore, I decided to belt it up with my leather obi belt to cinch in the waist for an elegant touch to this dress.


I had also purchased these cute little tassles for hooking on to the zippers of my clutch for a DIY change to some of them. Whilst styling for this outfit post I found a totally different purpose for them this time. Hooking them up as tassles to a simple stiletto heels for that party look.



My girlfriend recently sent me this necklace from Thailand which was so ideal to pair it with this dress to bring out that whole ethnic feel in the outfit. This Swarovski inspired style of jelly stacked bangles in rose gold completed the whole look.

    1. Yes you should Christy. I personally have purchased some items from them and to be honest although some are touch n go in terms of quality or fit - best you read the reviews per the item you wish to purchase to ascertain if it'll work for you.

    3. Aww....but yet again it would look cute with a nice pair of pants underneath it. A long tunic per se or long blouse can be trendy when matched right. So go for it. Fashion is not black or white. It's mix and matching and re-creating new looks from old pieces and making a style that best suits you! Have fun!

  18. Wow, great look! I think I'm the only woman alive who just DOESN'T GET the tassel necklaces! I mean they even made them into an emoji!! But the shoes with the tassel, now that's a totally different story! I LOVE them, and they look great on you! I love the necklace, too, but the shoes are what grabbed me immediately. Great look!

    1. Hi Jamie. Yes it was a cute idea to DIY some of our accessories so that we need not keep buying new stuff. Thats what my blog was aimed to do. Anyway, will hope to look for new trinkets to add to that simple pair of stiletto heels to give it a different look. And guess what? Those tassels are now off those shoes and on my clutch to add that final oomph to a simple clutch bag ! It already looks more expensive just with a hook on tassel.
