ASOS HAUL REVISITED | Keepers VS. Returns

A few weeks ago, I uploaded an ASOS Haul video on my YouTube channel. It was the first time I had seen the items as I unboxed the parcel whilst I was filming, so I thought it might be an idea to let you all know what my final thoughts on the pieces were. As always, there were some keepers, and then a couple of things I sent back. If this is something you would like to see more of after I upload a haul video, please let me know! If you click on the pictures in the post, it will take you straight to the item on the ASOS website.

BOOHOO PINAFORE DRESS

KEEPER – This dress is going to be one of my favourite pieces of clothing when Autumn/Winter comes around. It is a very lightweight cord material and the print is made up of the most beautiful Autumnal burnt orange colour.

WHITE BANDEAU MIDI DRESS

KEEPER – I almost didn’t order this dress because not only is it white, but it is figure hugging and strapless – not something I would usually go for. It was so affordable and it is lovely. I ordered it in a size 16 and had to exchange for the 14, which is always a good feeling! I love this dress, it looks so pretty and can be worn casually or dressed up. It is such a lovely holiday dress and I am hoping that if we go to San Francisco soon it will be ideal to wear in the daytime!

BOOHOO FLORAL PRINT SUNDRESS

KEEPER – It took me a little while to work out how to actually get this dress on, but once I had mastered the crossover straps I knew it would be coming on holiday with me.

FASHION UNION PLEATED GREY DRESS

RETURN – I ordered this dress with the idea of being a bit different and edgy, but it made me look like a sack of potatoes. It hung in all of the wrong places and was so long, nothing made it look flattering on me! I am sure many people could pull this off, but unfortunately I am not one of them.

FLORAL PINK AND BLUE MAXI DRESS

KEEPER – From the minute I saw this dress I loved it and it is so incredibly flattering. It is a bit ‘boobie’ on me but when I am covering so much of the rest of me up, I kinda don’t mind showing a bit more bust! The colours and pattern of this maxi are very feminine and soft and the material and shape makes it fit like a glove – I am so happy I ordered this one! They have the same style of dress in different prints on the ASOS website and I am very tempted to order another.

LACE FLORAL PRINT BIKINI

RETURN – I was never going to get my boobie doobs in this bikini top.

DENIM MIDI WAIST SKIRT

RETURN – Unfortunately, I had to send this skirt back. I loved the colour, length and idea of it but it just didn’t do anything for me. I am now on the hunt for something similar which is more suited to my shape.

RED FRILL OF THE SHOULDER

RETURN – This one sat on the maybe pile for a long time before I decided to send it back. It is beautful – the colour, print and overall design makes this dress look much more expensive than it is. However, the double frill across the chest area made my boobs look even bigger than they are, which isn’t something that looks overly flattering on my figure! It just didn’t look 100% right, but I am sure it would look beautiful on the right person.

OFF THE SHOULDER FLORAL SUNDRESS

KEEPER – This little number is by no means a show stopper, but a very pretty and easy to wear bardot dress for during the day. I took this on holiday with me and wore it a couple of times, it is so easy just to throw on if headed to the pool or off to explore.
