Winter in Germany feat. SammyDress

This is my first post since moving to Germany two weeks ago. I will soon make a post about my transition, but to get back into the groove of blogging and reestablish some normalcy, I am pleased to write about my experience with the clothing company SammyDress.

I had a lot of fun browsing their site because there’s so many unique styles to choose from that I don’t often see in American clothing stores. Judging by the models used in the photos and other blogger’s posts, I knew that whatever I picked had the chance of not fitting as it should, even if I ordered a size up. I picked pieces that I could work with if it didn’t fit how I imagined. I received my safely packaged items in less than three weeks, which is longer than I’m used to, but understandable considering it came from overseas.

This sweater fit the model as a dress, but despite ordering a size up, it was still too short on me. I wore it instead as a tunic, and I especially liked the look of it under my coat. The sweater material is thick enough for winter, but the sheer material at the hem adds playfulness and femininity to an otherwise typical winter look. I paired it with a simple black watch with a gold bezel that complemented the gold hardware on my boots and my new leaf ring.

SammyDress offers fashionable clothing for very low prices. Much like other fast fashion stores, it offers high- and low-end pieces with the common goal of being stylish. Just from my first impression, the regular selection of clothes on their site seem better suited for petite women, not my 5’6″ apple frame. The next time I order from SammyDress, I will take advantage of their Plus Size section, which offers the same styles in extended sizes.

The sweater is warm, but requires some kind of undershirt. The black dress has a lining, but it’s sheer and may need a slip, skirt or proper undergarments. Both pieces maintain their shape and style well, and only need minor adjustments, such as making sure that the frilly hems are not tucked under.

Ring: c/o SammyDress

I wear a size 7 ring, and the rings I chose came in one size. They only fit my pinkie, but that’s not a problem for me since I enjoy wearing rings on each finger. The watch has a very classic design and is a rather sophisticated looking piece for being less than $3.

I recommend SammyDress to those who want interesting pieces to wear during the seasons that are unlike items sold in most conventional stores. It is also for the shopper with a limited budget who would like to refresh their wardrobe without having to spend more than $50.

Thank you to SammyDress for sponsoring this post!

Phew, blogging again. This feels good.
