Is Romwe legit? A review + shopping tips for similar sites

This year, the lid was kinda-sorta blown off a string of clothing websites based in China. Buzzfeed covered the story, and many familiar, cheap sites, Romwe among them, were mentioned. Is Romwe legit? Are any of them legit? Is it all just a scam?

I’ve shopped at some of these sites in the past, Romwe and Shein among them, and while I do think there is definitely a higher risk associated with shopping from these foreign, cheapish sites, I also think that getting a great deal shopping at these websites is absolutely possible.

Choies Midi Skirts

Choies is really nailing their midi skirt game. I am recently obsessed with midi skirts and disappointed with my height. I also love so many of these skirts but since it’s nearly winter weather, I know a lot of these skirts won’t work with tights. But still:

These prints are unreal. They’re so detailed and dramatic and definitely statement-making. My favorite of the bunch is that Girl Print skirt. I’m thinking of getting that for Thanksgiving/Christmas/Christmas parties. I’d like it with a pair of red heels and a cream top with a fur. Which is your favorite?
