Newchic.Com Haul # 1 Review

I don't know if it's just a girl thing, but I can't stop myself from shopping for clothes, shoes, and accessories. Even though my closet is already overflowing with them; which some are still unused and still with tags. Fashion and dressing-up is a way of life to me, well.. ok... more of like an obsession. I always find myself browsing thru online apparel retail stores; sometimes without even the slightest inkling on buying anything. I just love pretty things and I'm drawn to it. 




But then there are times when I cannot suppress the urge to shop. Especially when what's in front of me, or in this case, what's showing up on my cellphone screen are completely attractive pieces and at super affordable prices. That's exactly what happened to me while I was browsing thru Newchic.com's website.


Newchic.com offers fashion items, for both men and women, that are of the latest trends without burning your pockets. Not only that, I have had the one of the best customer service experience with this site. Their website is also fairly easy to use, providing customers with language, currency and shipment options. It is the only Asia-based online clothing store that I visited which provides Philippine peso as currency, they were able to consider the fact that the Philippines has a huge market for online buyers. And I'm definitely giving Newchic kudos for it.

So anyway, here's my haul from the site:


Hollow Out Irregular Hem Long Sleeve Knit Sweater



This sweater is made of cotton and polyester materials featuring long sleeves, a cute opening at the upper back portion and an irregular hem. The clothing items are individually wrapped in plastic and with tags. 




Since I live in a country lying in the tropics, it's rarely that temperatures drop which will force you to wear something very thick or to layer clothes. That's why I don't own that many sweaters. Although when the rainy season hits and from December to early February the weather can get a bit chilly. But I tend to have low tolerance for cold environments and the work place is no exemption.




This sweater looks exactly like the photo on the website  and is not that thick so it's actually perfect for that kind of low temperature that I usually experience at work. I just have to wear a cami under it so as not to be too revealing. It's supposed to be a crop-top-kind-of-sweater but since I'm petite, it's of the perfect length for me.




Women Buckle Suede Square Heel Ankle Boot



This pair of ankle boots is in the color of apricot with chunky square heels that are around 5.5 cm. The upper material is made of faux suede and the outer soles and heels are made of sturdy rubber.




The insides are lined with a felt or woolly kind of cloth which makes your feet comfy and warm. The boot's tube height is around 10 cm which is a great height for ankle boots. These are super perfect if you're thinking of pairing them with leggings or skinny jeans; especially if you're going to cuff your jeans. And I've been seeing a lot of photos online of outfits just like that.




I also love that the toe box are not that pointy and the criss-cross faux leather belt decorations add some edge to these booties. I am quite excited to use these booties but only until February when the weather is still cold. Living in a tropical country, for some reason, wearing boots are somewhat inappropriate. But what the heck, I don't really care, I love it, I like it and I will wear them and nobody can stop me. LOL!


  



This maxi dress is actually not made of chiffon as described on the website. It's more of like a nylon-type of textile but it's still flowy and drapes beautifully. It looks super nice in photos but to be honest this did not meet my expectations mostly because of the material used for the dress. 




By the way, the puckering on some parts of the dress might be because I haven't ironed the dress out yet. Also, I have an issue with the sheerness of the dress, it doesn't have a lining, which  you can see from the photos below, that the prints of fitting form can be seen through the dress. But  nothing a mini dress camisole can fix.




The pink and purple floral print is actually beautiful and if paired with great accessories will definitely be a stunner outfit. I'm thinking of using brightly-colored belt with it and nude pumps. Although I  still don't know when or when will I wear it though.

  3. you put my worries to rest.. (^_^) we ordered 7 items on new chic last march 03,2016 using CC without checking reviews about them. the day after we saw reviews about rosegal.com with negative reviews, that got me worried because both are online retail stores (with almost the same items posted for sale).. but thank you for your post, i know we have nothing to worry about but to wait for our items to arrive.. (^_^)

    3. Did you order any shoes? I was wondering about the sizing? I usually wear a 7, but I've heard they run small - and they do not offer 1/2 sizes.

    4. I'm looking at a pair of flats from them, but was wondering about the shoe sizing? I wear a 7, however they do not have 1/2 sizes and the site recommends ordering a size up. What did you find with the size of the boots. Did you order your size or a size up?

      Delete
    5. I did and they are true to size

      Delete

    I like a lot of what I see on their site, but am concerned about their return policy... (also are they legit...?) Glad you were happy.

  6. I went on their website since they had so many cute dresses, but I wasn't sure I'd take the risk to ordere since I've been unlucky before. Found Your blog and the great Pictures you posted made me go for it. Thank you so much!!! Recived my dresses yesterday and they're great. I would never have dared ordered if you had not posted so good Pictures.
    Thank you so much from Norway

  8. Your blog about this was very helpful to me too. You never know on review sites how many of the reviews are legit. So, thank you! I think I'll order a few things but I'm wondering about sizing. Did you order your normal clothing size and also the same with the shoes. I usually have to try clothes and shoes on because they fit differently between brands so I know it's a toss up there. Appreciate your help.

    1. if you want it to be delivered at your house, choose the expedited shipping, it'll cost you more sans the hassle of dealing with the post office... from what I can remember they sent it via DHL straight to my house.
