Before I delve into this post, I urge you to read my "Black Lives Matter" post if you haven't already.  It lists a number of organizations and petitions that support racial equality and condemn race-based violence.  It also contains resources that you can utilize to support more black-owned businesses, black authors, and black creators.  Additionally, I urge you to sign the "Free Rojai Fentress" petition, which is attempting to free Mr. Fentress from wrongful imprisonment.  He is currently being represented by the UVA School of Law.
Now, for those of you who are unfamiliar with YesStyle, it's a Korean site that sells women's, men's, and children's clothing in addition to stationery, jewelry, home decorations, makeup, beauty products, and so much more.  I am so happy that I discovered this website about a year ago because it has made clothes shopping so much easier for me.

As someone who is more petite, finding stylish clothing that also fits well has always been very challenging for me.  However, I've been very lucky with Asian clothing brands because they often design their clothes to suit more petite frames.

If you're interested in shopping on YesStyle, I have a few general tips to remember.  First, although Asian clothing sizes tend to run smaller than American clothing sizes, you don't have to be extremely small and/or skinny to wear (and look good in) the clothes on the website.  It's simply a matter of looking at sizing charts and reading reviews.

Speaking of reviews, always read the reviews!  I'm not suggesting that you should never buy an item that has no reviews, but sometimes the realities of the clothes on YesStyle don't always match the expectations set by their photos.

Finally, not all of the clothing items are in stock.  When you click on an item, it should say how many days it will take for the item to ship out, ranging from one day to fourteen days.  Your order will not ship out until every single item is ready to ship out, so if you order just one item that isn't in stock, it may significantly increase the amount of time it takes for your order to be shipped.

Let's get on to the review!  Now is a good time to mention that this post is not sponsored by YesStyle, and all of my ratings of the items are my honest opinions.

Here are my measurements for reference:

Waist - 24 in (61 cm)
Hips - 36 in (92 cm)
Height - 64 in (163 cm)
