OOTD: Asos sale dress

Asos so impresses me. They ship from the UK for less $ and in less time than most US plus sized retailers. I received my order from last week yesterday. Here's the dress that I ordered:

I love the vibrant blue, the gauzy, breezy 100% cotton - and I like how it is pretty much a tiered/swing style, so it can be shapeless or be belted for two totally different looks. I'm going to try it with a belt next time.

What I don't love, and I always forget this, is that I don't look great with spaghetti straps. I need a wider strap because I hate wearing a strapless bra. So I layered a tank underneath it so I could wear my regular bra :)

Outfit details:
Dress: asos size 22 - still on sale for only ~$7.50!
tank: old navy xxl, years back
cardigan: old navy 1x, 2009
"pearls": $1 table, fremont farmer's market
red peep toes: target, recent, size 11
Petticoat: invisible, but this dress was fairly sheer so I wanted to wear something under

The other two items will be featured soon, though the bow tie tee that I was so excited about is too tight around the hips and has no stretch at all, which is weird for a t-shirt!

wow! I didn't realize Asos' shipping charges were so reasonable! I'd been holding off ordering from them since they're in the UK and all - but I'll definitely have to give them a try!

Carly - the sale is still going on! Just sayin' :). It's not advertised on their main page anymore, but all the sale prices and items are still around. I'm such an enabler :)

Emily - yep, it was a flat $6 to ship to the US! I think it's always that way, and not just during sales.

Thank you Shannon!

Lovely outfit! I hate little spaghetti straps like that, in my opinion they serve no purpose. I love the way you layered a wider strapped tank underneath.

Thanks Sonia!

yeah, they only serve to irritate me, really. :)
