What's saved in my ASOS bag

I thought this would be a different post and a sort of pre-haul as I haven't yet decided on these items. Most are from the sale and these are my top picks if you will. I have an asos curve haul coming up shortly as I bought 6 items over xmas but 3 need to arrive at the office, so keep an eye out for that!

1. Dolly Skater With Floral Embroidery

 ASOS CURVE Dolly Skater With Floral Embroidery

I think the neckline and flared skirt on this dress would be flattering for my figure as it comes in at the waist and alongside the really cute floral print which is so feminine it's very spring/summer. I would wear this dress with cute pumps, gold jewellery and possibly a leather jacket for a nice daytime look.

2. Swing Dress With Lace Applique

ASOS CURVE Swing Dress With Lace Applique

This dress isn't something that I would usually go for due to the trapeze cut shape, however I think belted at the waist it could work perfect for me. I absolutely love the pleated chiffon and the floral lace detailing and the dress has an almost vintage look. I would pair it wight black opaque tights, black shoes and a cute shrug to cover up the arms.

3. Leggings With Embellished Panels

ASOS CURVE Leggings With Embellished Panels

I absolutely love the sequin panelling on these leggings making them perfect for a night out. They would be paired with a simple long black top and possibly Jeffrey Campbell nightwalks for a really cool glam grunge look. I think at £18.00 these leggings aren't really breaking the bank but are definitely a statement piece.

4. Peplum Dress With Sequins

ASOS CURVE Peplum Dress With Sequins

This dress has enticed me for some time, it appeals to my love of sparkle and sequins and I do think it looks great in navy. The issues I have are with the satin material and the fit which I just can't make a decision on. I would be tempted to size up as the dress seems very fitted and there is nothing worse than too tight satin as it clings to literally everything you don't want it to. I'm also a little unsure on the length as when you watch the catwalk show it looks impossibly short (granted the models are taller than me, but still!) meaning I'm not sure I would be comfortable wearing the dress with tights thus rendering the dress unwearable. I'm tempted to order this dress in two sizes to try on as the ASOS returns policy is really good and it has been playing on my mind for weeks now.

So that was my ASOS bag, thanks for reading! Love Sally x
