Hi loves. Today I’ll be talking about sponsorships with fashion bloggers.
I took on a new sponsor – Zaful who reached out to me last week. They ship directly from China and provide trendy pieces at great value. Having worked with other retailers that provide the similar inventory and because they allowed me to choose anything from their full collection, I thought it would be a great way to share my findings with these companies.
Fit: Because they target asian markets the hemlines are shorter. Avoid long dresses or long-sleeved items if you don’t have trouble with length domestically. The fit also varies from piece to piece, as they don’t provide a cohesive brand.
Quality: The quality also varies drastically across their pieces – but their pricing schema makes it very clear what is higher in quality or not. The higher the sell price, the higher the quality. Because a lot of their items were made of polyester fiber, I made it a point to only receive items of cotton or cotton-blend material.
Affordability: The prices are incredibly reasonable, and many times you can get items for under $10. However, expect to get what you pay for.
I ended up choosing the above two pieces: racerback crop top and high waist hemming short. They easily blend into other items in my closet, and I’ve been wanting another white crop tank for awhile. The top came a little large, and I pre-shrunk washed this before shooting. Shorts were another great option because of the smaller sizing and I have trouble finding bottoms. They were of high quality construction, with a crepe like feel – I would order these again.
In conclusion, it is possible to find something to fit your minimal closet, at any price point – from any store.
