Zaful and two other affiliate websites generously offered me several pieces from their websites for review over the holidays. This week, I will be reviewing each of the websites and their pieces. You guys--I am so excited to share these pieces and photos with you. First up, is Zaful itself.
I am a HUGE fan of the backless look. It is very understated and sexy. This backless jumper is what dreams are made of. It is a sturdy linen fabric, which makes it a lovely look for spring or summer, but as you can see here, it can also be dressed up in winter whites for a wedding or other formal affair. I was also extremely excited that the jumpsuit was not see-through.
To glam this piece up, I added a lush burgundy fur and a sweet metallic heel. A bold red lip and dramatic pearl necklace helped to complete the look.
This jumpsuit on Zaful is under $25--which of course is a bargain. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this jumpsuit as it honestly doesn't look as sturdy online. This was my "test piece" because I was not sure if the fabric would stand up to the test of see-through-ness and I was also a little nervous about the way it would look and fit. Being small-chested, I always get nervous about pieces where I can't wear a bra because bras are actually what give me shape. In this case, I think the backless piece more than makes up for my lack of, um, front shape.
One thing I will say about this piece is that it was one of the last to arrive (more on that later). I sent the original request to Zaful toward the end of November. Zaful had reached out to me to review items for Christmas, but I did not receive the pieces in time for that. That gives this piece a nearly 5-6 week shipment time. Granted, this is shipped internationally, so although price-wise and quality-wise I was impressed, shipment time was extremely long and disappointing. I was not one to complain, especially since I was not paying for these items and was graciously accepting them for review instead. However, if I had just stumbled upon this item and was anxiously awaiting its arrival, I would be a bit disappointed.
All in all, I give this piece/experience 3 out of 5 stars. The quality and price are top notch, but the wait was very long.

The second piece for review from Zaful was this gorgeous navy velvet pleated skirt. I was again extremely impressed with the quality. This skirt is heavy, the way that velvet should be. The color is rich and the swing factor is top notch--very important. I loved that the pleats were sharp, but not stiff.
Originally, I was going to style this for Christmas with a gold blouse and red heels. However, I decided to go for a more casual juxtaposition with my Beyonce graphic tee and a bomber jacket. Originally, I paired this look with my Adidas, but something just didn't look right, so I traded them in for the heels. Boom.
This skirt came in much sooner than the jumpsuit, but it still took 2-3 weeks from the order. That wasn't too bad, but still longer than typical online orders. The price of this skirt is $25. So I give this item and experience a 4 out of 5 stars.
For more from Zaful, I would highly recommend checking them out on their website, Facebook or follow them on Pinterest!
