My little party dress

dress: ASOS (available here) // shoes: kmart

In a moment of sheer weakness and probably a little dose of boredom this dress landed in my ASOS shopping basket and before you knew it I had checked out and was eagerly awaiting my new little dress. I kind of justified the purchase by saying it would be perfect for summer outings (and I have worn it out a few times already, so totally justified). Plus it ticked my party dress boxes - bright, different and I love a one-shoulder dress,

Well when it arrived something just wasn't right, it didn't hug in the right places so I reordered it in a smaller size and voila I love it. I guess that is one of the downfalls of internet shopping especially when there isn't universal sizing let alone stores running the same sizes in their own clothes. 

I have to say though ASOS makes it ridiculously easy to return things (easier then some brick and mortar stores), I guess that's why they are such a successful brand. I actually read the other day that they send the equivalent of four jumbo jets full of clothes to Australia every week - that's crazy right?!

  1. You're right -- it's a great party dress!
    I have never shopped at ASOS before, let alone other clothing shops. I am just so worried about things not fitting me! :)

    My father in laws farm is somewhere near Mittagong NSW, I guess because its high up - it just holds onto the cold weather more - even during summer. It pretty crazy that I went out in a jumper and jeans in the middle of summer really! x

  6. Ahh I love Asos! It really does make me happy. You so amazing in that dress Megan, the style, the colour the floral print. It looks good. I'm not surprised that they send four jumbo jets. One of those is probably for me :) x
