First I will rant and then I will tell you all about this Dresslink grey knit wrap sweater. As you know I am a lover all things inexpensive but I refuse to look like less because I pay less. I believe anyone can make Charlotte Russe look like Chanel! You just have to choose smart pieces, choose great fabrics, and keep it simple.
Lately I have been seeing a lot of bloggers posting reviews and outfits of some of the best known frugal sites and no shade, but the outfits look horrible! By no fault of their own, but the rules for choosing inexpensive clothes online are so much harder. We know a lot of these sites use other bloggers photos and the actual product may or may not be up to par.
I have seen very poor quality fabrics, completely different color or style then the photos of some of these sites and as a blogger I feel it is my responsibility to at least be honest with my readers!
I’m tiered of fellow bloggers selling their brand/ their word for an $8 shirt or $20 dress.
I know we are at risk of not receiving more sponsorships if we are negative but if we are honest won’t our fewer sponsors be more effective and readers more appreciative?!
I as a customer have been screwed over by listening to blogger reviews and bloggers who don’t tell the whole truth are lessening the credibility of bloggers.
So these next few Friday’s will be Frugal FRIDAY!
I look forward to keeping it real and telling you how I choose great pieces online for less and/ or what pieces I have chosen are no good!

Delivery : 5/5 No issues, I was expecting a long delivery time since the package was coming from China and I didn’t pay much for shipping. I completed my order on April 20th and my package arrived on May 6th.
Three items all in one package and separately wrapped as well, no damage.
Quality: 4.75/5 The fabric is very nice and the knit is soft. 1/4 point deduction because it snags but that is expected with knit fabrics.
Style: 4/5 I love this style but it was really hard to figure out the styling so I took pictures with the item styled two different ways once wrapped in front and once wrapped behind.
Purchase Recommendation: Yes!
Cons: The sweater is a bit of an odd shape (see video below)
Pros: It is a great price, fabric and it is different.
I will be styling pieces from Dresslink.com and other discount retail sites.
I may throw in a few perfect finds in store as well.
