Celestial Body – Star Print Dress

posted on: Saturday, August 26, 2017

Time to test out the quality of those Chinese online retailers again with this star print dress from Rosegal.

Mini dress & leather jacket outfit.

Head in the clouds, body in the stars. Literally.

Anyone who knows me personally, knows that I can, without any effort, talk your ears off about space & the universe. So it seemed quite odd that I would own very few items of clothing with stars on them.

When Rosegal offered some pieces again, I decided I would accept on the basis of what star related clothing they had available. Turns out, there is an unbelievable amount available. Two hundred & forty-three items to be precise (at time of print), & that’s just clothing. With stars on them. I didn’t even bother looking into accessories & whatever other random things they carry on that black-hole-of-an-online-shopping-website. Settled on a black mini dress because, I found one covered in stars, I needed a(nother) dress in this style & because it was pretty cheap & I wanted to road test the quality of these types of stores again. Last time, the clothes had fallen apart before I had even pulled them out of the package. This time? I’m impressed. The entire dress is hemmed & isn’t see through. Not amazing quality but for the price, it’s probably worth it. Or probably not depending on your standards. But for me, it’s comfy, not transparent & most importantly, covered in stars.

I guess they were being serious when they said they were overhauling the shady image that everyone had got used to of these sites. By the way, I’m pretty sure of these retailers (Rosegal, Dresslily, Sammydress, the list goes on & on) are under the same umbrella company.

I’ve had some pretty shocking items from these places in the past (like these shoes that were out to kill me), but from this most recent package, everything seems to be a-o-k (except one bikini top which is waaaayyy out of proportion in size to it’s bottoms). Other than that, the bikinis could definitely rival the quality of some big-name brands doing the rounds on Instagram.

Have you had an experience with these retailers recently?

  • You’re killing the casual look!


  • I am still a bit iffy about them, also I have been told it takes ages for items to arrive and I am an impatient buyer, hahaha. I love the dress you chose though, perfect casual look for late summer. Hope you are having a great September, my dear

  • Your outfit is so so cool! The dress is beautiful and I love how you’ve paired it with sneakers!

  • OMG I love everything about your outfit and the location of this shoot. But you already know that I’m basically a walking tree. Greenery cools my eyeballs, which were pretty tired today because hey, the pms week is here! Urgh. I didn’t know that you’re into stars and the universe so this new nugget of information is making me quite curious. What is your favorite planet? And if you’re stuck in floating about in space in (a spacewoman suit of course), what would you be doing there to pass the time (lol). I’ve never tried Rosegal before but anything you wear ends up looking fab especially those socks. Heheh 😀 x

    • Jupiter & pioneering the unknown of course! x
      PS. The socks aren’t from Rosegal 😛

  • Nothing like a simple leather jacket to spice up a look!
    Isn’t That Charming.

  • I haven’t shopped anything from these retailers and I’m little unsure about them. Just the style of their website gives me chills and I have seen so many horrible reviews about them with couple good pieces there and here. But this one looks amazing! I love it how you have styled them with superstars. Amazing!

    This dress is so lovely looking and I really love the way you have styled it.
    Your style is nearly like mine – so I feel like I could wear anything you suggest.
    Love that bag too!
    Super comfy so you can be out on the town all day!
    I was approached by these guys as well to do a collab. Was wondering why since I am a beauty blogger.

  • Love how you’ve styled this – it is girly, yet with an edge. I live for leather jackets and comfy sporty shoes. So it is a massive win-win in my book! xx

  • I’ve never tried one of those online sites before, having been scared off by too many horror stories, haha! However, this star-print dress looks really gorgeous on you and I love how it looks when layered with the faux leather jacket layered. Perfect!

    I’ve been debating on taking up Rosegal on a recent offer of a collab they sent me but all the previous bad reviews put me off, your star outfit looks lovely though.

    • Just do it. If you get shit clothing, just tell everyone. You’re only being honest. In saying that though, I was genuinely surprised at how much they’ve improved. I can see from their site though, that they still have a lot of crap so you’ve got to know what to look for haha x

  • I love this look with the dress and sneakers!


  • Such a cool outfit! Love the leather too!

    I also loove styling girly dresses with my adidas. You look great, hope the quality delivers 😀


  • Love the look hon.. You can never go wrong with leather 🙂

  • I really love the star dress and clicked on your link. At £57 with limited sizes and not seeing the quality I didn’t buy one. I know what you mean, you never really know what they’re going to be like till they arrive and sometimes the quality just doesn’t match up. I really do like the star print though and your pictures are fab.

    • Hey Jasmine!
      Which link did you click on? The star dress I’m wearing is only US$8.30, maybe you clicked a different store or brand? Hope that helps 🙂

  • Your outfit is so cute! 🙂 xx

    I love how this post has been edited like a magazine! I have been digging the start print lately and just ordered a skirt from a Chinese online retailer also!

  • I’m so in love with this outfit! Love the stars and love how it’s all black and white!

  • I love star print but have so little of it in my wardrobe – I really should add more to my wardrobe.

    I agree with you and think a lot of these online shopping sites are the same company – they use the same photos sometimes anyway! It’s good you had such a positive experience with them 🙂

    Hope you are having a great weekend 🙂
