Polka Dotted Skirt [ Review]

Hi guys!

I feel like I don't talk about fashion enough on this blog so to give my blog a bit more variety, I thought I'd share with you an online fashion website that I found called OASAP .

OASAP is a fashion website based in Asia, but unlike those wholesale fashion websites based in Asia that offer dirt-cheap clothes of poor quality , OASAP offers trendy, stylish clothes at reasonable (not dirt-cheap) prices. 

They also offer FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE! You also get a 20% coupon on your first order. Me likey. 

The service was pretty good. I received a confirmation email and it was shipped quickly after it was ordered. It arrived within 2 weeks, which is average for international shipping. 

I chose to receive this cute, polka-dotted skirt. Polka dots are definitely a pattern that never goes out of style.

Here's a photo taken from the site. The item is called Dots Printing Elastic Waist Bubble Skirt .

Dots Printing Elastic Waist Bubble Skirt

I received the item in a neutral, mint green colour which isn't available anymore but the navy blue color is.
I quite like the color as it'll be a great Spring piece.

One thing that really bothered me was that the website advertises it as a skirt, but when I received it, I was shocked to see that it was actually shorts?!
Luckily when worn, you can't really tell and it still looks like a skirt but the gap between the legs and the fold really irks me. 

I think the item description is really misleading as it's called a "skirt" and they did not mention at all that it was actually a skort.

Also, the item pictured on the website did not have a ruffle detail at the bottom of the skirt but the one I received did, so... I'm starting to think I received another skirt instead that looked identical...?

The skirt also came with a brown, woven belt which is actually decent and I will get some use out of it.
Yay, free belt!

The skirt is made out of chiffon and the quality is nice.

I also love how the back of the skirt has an elastic waist band so I can see it fitting a lot of people, as the skirt is one size fits all.

The length of the skirt hits me at mid-thigh, but I am quite short so I can see this being a bit too short for a lot of people. 
Most of these Asian fashion websites are based on more petite people, so just make sure to check the measurements.

I like to pair up this skirt (err I mean skort) with a white tee and an oversized cardigan.

In the photos, I also wore some peep-toe, bow wedges. I think it makes a cute Spring outfit.

Overall, this is a cute, good quality skirt and I like how it came with a belt.
A major disappointment though was the fact that it turned out to be shorts. C'mon, at least state that on the website! =/

But I would still recommend this website and will probably place an order in the future, as they have a lot of really cute things!

Feel free to check out OASAP for cute, trendy pieces!


This item was provided for consideration however this does not affect my opinion and my reviews are 100% honest.


  1. Cute outfit! I love the way you've styled it, you look adorable! Free belt woohoo! Don't you love that?

  2. Oooh you look lovely Sheri! That's frustrating that they didn't describe it well though.

  3. That skort is soooo lovely! You look so adorable Ms. Sheri! :)

  4. I love this skirt, polka dots are so cute! :)

  5. Cute skorts - the colour is lovely! Not mentioning it's not a skirt is a bit misleading though!

  6. Cuute! I'll definitely check out OASAP! I'm always looking for trendy little online store outlets! Thanks!

  7. Love that skirt!!!! Oasap is such a fun online store!!!

  8. Love the skirt - but too bad it's not really a skirt! D: Still looks pretty though <3

  9. I'd honestly be super disappointed if I ordered a skirt and it turned out to be shorts! It's still really cute, but I don't think I'd order from this site now just knowing that I might not get exactly what I ordered... Thanks for the honest review!


    1. Yes I know what you mean!
      It's a disappointment but I think I'll still try my luck :P

  10. Luckily the shorts turned out to be cute anyways - and you also scored yourself a free belt, yay! I never buy any clothing items from OASAP as I find their 'one size fits all' sizing to be complete crap. I mainly stick to their handbags and accessories!

    1. Yeah it's probably safer to stick to handbags and accessories!
      I haven't really checked them out on oasap, how's the quality? :)

  11. This is really lovely one you! However I can't shop on these kinds of websites, one size fits all does not my my ass/boobs haha!

  12. Lol that is so strange that it turned out to be shorts! But skorts are all the rage at the moment anyway ;) The colour and the polka dots are adorable and I'm always for free shipping!

  13. Haha oh dear, I would be annoyed if I got skorts instead of a skirt! That was quite misleading :( At least it looks cute and I love the polka dots, and free shipping is the best!

  14. It looks good on you

    Do you want to follow each other on bloglovin and GFC? Please check out my blog and tell me about it.

  15. Haha how weird, they could have written skort! It's probably really a skirt, and the colour you chose is a completely different style that just looks similar so they through it all in the one description haha! Either way you look gorgeous!

  16. that's a supercute polka dot skirt :)
