As a student and a shopaholic, there's only one thing I love most- a good bargain. And by a good bargain, I mean something cheap, affordable yet high-quality at the same time. Seems too good to be true? Not at all! With so many shops online, I have managed to find a lovely gem of a shop called Everything 5 pounds, which as the name suggest sells everything for 5 pounds.
It seems too good to be true when I first heard about it, I mean, who sells things for 5 pounds? But their shop have the biggest collection of dresses and clothing, as well as shoes and accessories. I had a long look at their selection, and their photos are so lovely. I love the fact that the website is so easy to use, and they really do sell everything under the sun, from hats, socks to beautiful maxi dresses. They even ship worldwide and have a great plus size selection so there's plenty of goods to go around for everyone.
The question is- are they worth it? I'm going to actually be reviewing my order from the site for you completely honestly. I'll compare items from their shop to the actual goods I received. I was a bit skeptical as I heard that cheap sites always have low-quality or broken items. These are completely 100% my own opinions after ordering some dresses from their shop.
The first dress I ordered is the White Crochet Back dress- when it arrived I found that they actually use a branded product from a French brand (with labels cut out), so it seems that they really sell quality products from known brands! The quality of the dress is fantastic- it is thick and not too see-through (unlike most white dresses) and has a great size zip. The crochet is superb. It feels like something I bought for 5 times the price on the High Street.
I'm actually amazed at this dress and it looks great on me because of the good fit, even better than the picture on their website. In fact, I was so happy with this dress that I bought another one in Pink (even though they have Black too). I can't believe that with this price, I got a dress of this quality. And don't blame me- I'm being totally honest with you because this was not what I was expecting.
Their customer service is also helpful, because I had some problems ordering and they helped me sort it out within hours of me emailing. I'm really pleased with this shop overall, and I still can't believe that items of such quality exists with such a price. I've heard bad things about shopping for cheap clothing online, but this site is definitely an exception. And a good exception too.
Of course, I'd recommend you go take a look at their selection and let me know what you think! I'd really want to know, because I STILL can't believe they are this cheap and this great. They have new daily styles updated on their Facebook page, so there's always new clothing.
