Special delivery!

tba dress (via Asos) // H&M tights // Aldo shoes

Hurrah, my Asos order arrived!!! And I am delighted to report that the tba dress fits perfectly. I was a little worried because I ordered a size Small but I have quite a big chest and silk isn't the stretchiest fabric. My wardrobe doesn't have many expensive items in it but it's lovely to have something that's well cut and a good quality. The silk is beautiful, quite heavy with a glossy sheen to it. That said, I think €108 is a fair price for this. I don't see how it's worth the original price of €209 ($290/£180). Also excuse the crumples, I ironed it then put some clean laundry on top of it overnight, oops! I should have ironed it again!
Asos Premium bag

Here is the bag I ordered, reduced from €96 to €16. It's huge! Which is something I like in a bag. The leather is beautifully soft and I like the colours. My only complaint is that there is no division inside the bag and there's not way to close it at the top - but on the other hand it was advertised as a shopper.

Overall I'm very happy with my Asos bargains! Have you picked up anything in the sales recently?  Or is there anything you're keeping an eye on, waiting for a price drop?

Your dress is gorgeous...I love the shoulder detail (it's a more interesting take on the current shoulder/elbow pad craze) and the pleated skirt is so pretty too. I love TBA...their clothes have a real delicate fairytale feel to them. I'm currently eyeing up a bee print blouse in Urban Outfitters...been keeping tabs on it for a while though and no sign of a price drop but I live in hope :)

ASOS has such chic clothes! This dress is great. I've had my eye on a jumper/sweater on their site. It's sitting in my shopping bag, and I'm so close to ordering it. It's not on sale, though.

Okay first off *lol* I just noticed that I had your blog down as "Inflammatory Writ" which is definitely a Joanna Newsom song.

Now, on to HOW CUTE YOU LOOK! EEE! ^_-
stunner! Hard to believe that dress could be cuter but look at it on you!
so so so so cute.

I am wondering, did you do your own layout and what not?
It's perfect; Not too plain, not too much going on.
I have seen people like Freckled Nest Designs offer services for such..
but I just don't have that kind of cash! I don't have a whole lot of experience in the graphic design game. Forever losing haha.

Oh, goodness. Thank you so much for all the advice. I'll probably try to work on it tomorrow because I know if I start so late it's a good chance I wont be sleeping tonight; I get pretty involved haha
But yes, your page is very nicely done, all perfect composition and everything. I am probably going to hack mine to pieces trying but at least I will have tried? Trying to be optimistic here..

PS Do that blog, girl! I did it and am iffy as mess about posting it but.. I think I'll upload that tomorrow while I am messing around on here! >.<
I'll just hit 'publish' really quickly and there'll be no turning back!

Also I really like that I don't have to enter a stupid security code whenever I comment you, it's so easy so I am like whoosh! comment all! haha.. I need to see if I can't do that to mine. And that fancy personal message. I remember you showing me how to change the "comments" to say whatever and I must have missed the rest of these options somehow. Woo, a lot on the to-do list..
