This ASOS dress was one of those pieces I would look at on the website, add to my cart, and then close out my browser. (I do this a lot, especially on ASOS… anyone else?) It’s just so fabulous… but didn’t feel relevant enough for my day to day life.
When I was going into an office every day, dresses like this were a staple in my wardrobe, but these days I’m either casual at home, or professionally dressed for consulting meetings. It’s not really the sort of dress you pitch a client in, or the sort of dress you go on a first date in… but it’s just fantastic. I couldn’t stop thinking about it, and it wasn’t terribly expensive… so I bought it and didn’t look back. I wore it to brunch with girlfriends and it was a hit, but it’s definitely more of a dressing for the girls sort of dress than dressing for the boys. I love it so much. I will say that it runs a bit tight through the shoulders – if you have broader shoulders, size up!
