ASOS Haul (Bow Dresses)

Dresses + Bows = i'm Totally Sold! The dress looks so cute on the model it convinced me to get them in both colors... ASOS Colour Block Bow Jersey Dress $48.70 - Cotton Mix Colour Block Dress - Removable belt with large bow feature - High waist skirt with pleated waist band in Navy/Light Pink in Black/Beige i'm a shawtee so the dress is knee length on me which is fine so i can wear it to work. Showin off the bow hehe! Total damage: $104.01 ($48.70/ea + $6.60 shipping) For those who haven't shopped at ASOS, here is a short intro... ASOS stands for 'As Seen On Screen' They carry the latest trends in fashion, designer stuff, makeup, and similar items that celebs wear. It's a UK-based online store but they also ship in other countries. Choose your currency on the upper right side of their webpage. WHAT I LIKE ABOUT ASOS:
  • They have a nice selection of dresses and accessories which are sometimes hard to find here in USA...i think
  • They have a 'View Catwalk' option on most of their items wherein you can view the model walking the runway with the featured item - so much better than just relying on the photos.
  • Shipping is not that bad. I'm in Los Angeles and it usually takes about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks to get here based on my previous experience.
  • They have fab items in their 'Clearance' Section. Tip: Make sure to check that first to save $.
WHAT I DON'T LIKE ABOUT ASOS:
  • The UK sizing confuses the heck out of me. They do have a size guide for reference but still.
  • RETURNS must be a b*tch if you're from another country. Luckily i have never had a bad experience with them and this is my 4th transaction.
Check out the site and lemme know wutchoo think.

Ohhh I love BOWS! When placed tastefully, I think bows are the perfect touch of femininity without being childish :D That dress is super adorable! UK sizing also hurts my brain...@_@

That dress is adorable and you look hot in that dress! :) The bow looks perfect with that dress! Love your contacts as well! I am blind so I just wear regular contacts because my eyes are crazy and can only use this one brand. I wish I can rock those colored contacts like you girls! XOXO, Bunnie

The dress looks so pretty! I ordered a jacket there for my bf and a pair of boots for myself. The boots are a bit big but there's nothing thick socks won't do. I agree with you, returning must be a bitch so i rather just deal with it.

I saw this dress ages ago but the gathered waist put me off. It looks great on you so I'm going to take the risk and order it in beige and black. I'll write about how I get on with it on my blog. Thanks for inspiring me!
