ASOS Window Shopping

After spending over a month straight going to bed between 12am and 2am thanks to uni work, exhaustion has caught up with me and given me the flu. Instead of going out and continuing the celebrations that mark the end of the uni year, I’m stuck at home ‘resting’. What better way to spend a Saturday night in that sussing out cute clothes and watching some TV?

ASOS is a great site to hit when you’re in a shopping mood simply because they have so many options on offer. So here are some cute pieces I felt the need to share with you all! Oh and did I mention they’re all under $100AUD?

For a cool night out with the girls, pair this blue beauty with some tan heels and gold accessories.

ASOS PETITE Exclusive Long Sleeve Belted Wrap Front Dress

Every girl needs a few dresses that can go from the boardroom to after-work drinks. Wow them all in this red number.

ASOS Mini Tulip Dress with Flute Sleeves in Red

Wear with brogues and braids for a conservative-gone-artistic chic look.

ASOS Shift Dress with Embellished Trim in Navy/Silver

What a gorgeous colour! Like a lime flavoured icy-pop in the summer sun. The perfect dress for shopping and lunch dates with the ladies. I’m definitely considering purchasing this number to cheer me up!

ASOS Belted Dress With Scoop Neck in Antique Moss

Party the summer nights away in this show-stopping frock. This shade of plum is simply divine and so very fun. Don’t go OTT by pairing with a black clutch and heels and understated jewelry.

TFNC Bandeau Sweetheart Sequin Dress

Another dress I’m really wanting right now is this lovely white number. There’s just something about this dress that gets me. Maybe it’s the fact you can accessorise it with lots of black without looking like you’ve just stepped out of a goth’s wardrobe? Whatever it is, I like it!

ASOS Tailored Pleat Lapel Crepe Dress in Cream

Anyway I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend. Maybe if you’re tired tomorrow from too much fun you can find a great frock for next week!

ASOS lust

This afternoon I spent a few hours lusting after some clothes on ASOS and I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you all! I may not be able to afford any clothes for the next few weeks (thanks to too much splurging on things in Auckland) but I can at least look… And maybe if I’m naughty I’ll turn a blind eye and sneak something past my self-imposed clothes ban.

Outfit lust #1: ASOS Petite dress with full pleated skirt and sequin embellishment $123.30

I love this so much; it’s the perfect balance between a party dress and a chic dinner gown. I don’t often buy dresses that hit just below the knee because they usually make me look shorter than I already am; but I would probably make an exception for this dress. Ladies, if you’re tall-ish, please buy this!

 

Outfit lust #2: ASOS Petite Exclusive mesh insert skater dress AU$73.98

I love this because it’s so very lady-like and reminds me of something Audrey Hepburn would wear in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. It’s a shame my city doesn’t have any more racing events coming up otherwise I’d have a great excuse to wear it. Melbourne Cup, perhaps?

 

Outfit lust #3: ASOS Exclusive playsuit with pleat neck detail (in either purple or blue) AU$57.54

The budget might be tight post-holiday but this is so cute I’m having a lot of trouble resisting it. Perfect for a hot summer’s night out on the town, or for lunch with the girls. I just need to work out which colour I prefer.

 

Outfit lust #4: ASOS Petite green skinny jeans AU$52.61

I’ve been wanting a pair of green skinny jeans ever since the coloured jeans trend started, but I figured I start with colbalt blue and work my way from there. Now that I own a cobalt blue and maroon red pair, I think it’s time to progress onto green. This ASOS pair are just the right price to sneak into my limited clothes budget at the moment too.

 

Outfit lust #5: ASOS lace shell top AU$36.17

Another item I am seriously considering breaking my clothes ban for. I’ve always wanted a black lace top but I’ve never found the right cut; I love this top because it has no puffy sleeves and it’s just simple and chic.

 

Outfit lust #6: ASOS Petite super long pussy bow blouse (in black or white) AU$49.32

Pussy bow blouses are one of my favourite types of tops around. Of course the only problem for me is the sleeves are usually too long–which is where ASOS Petite comes in handy. The oversized bow is very cute and this top would match my Zimmermann skater skirt nicely. Definitely the kind of shirt you don’t lean over the table in though!

 

Outfit lust #7: Ally Capellino bracelets AU$62.47

I’ll admit it, I’m a serial bracelet addict; I’m sure one can never have enough of them! This bracelet is one I would love to add to my collection.

 

Last, but not least, outfit lust #8: French Connection silk shift dress with beaded collar, on sale for AU$118.37

Probably my favourite of all the items I’ve pictured. I love the beading on the collar, as well as the lovely colour and the unique back. I can think of so many places to wear this dress. Another one to add to the list of things I’m considering breaking my clothes ban for.

And now I must be off to contemplate whether one of these lovely pieces is worth breaking the clothes ban for. Feel free to comment and tell me your favourite item!
