ASOS Sale Haul


So we seem to have made it through the first week of 2017, what a relief. However, myself along with many of you I'm sure have not come out unscathed. Yes that's right. I'm talking about the S word. SALE. It's undoubtedly everywhere at the moment, and as a fond shopper of ASOS, any excuse to remove some items from my wishlist and I am already there.

Welcome to my ASOS Sale Haul...


I thought I'd start off this year with something a bit different, as I think you will find it interesting. So obviously ASOS are making full use of the January sales, with an up to 70% off deal on selected items on their site. I wanted to grab a few bits that I thought were a bit of a bargain, but instead of just un-boxing them on my own, putting them on and styling them up, I figured I'd share the experience with you guys, and see what I've to say based on first impressions.




























I purchased five items from the site, all of which were reduced in some way and I will leave details as to original and discounted prices. 







- ITEMS -

Fashion Union jumper with high neck and wide sleeves: £25.00 (not in the sale but used 10% off UNIDAYS code).
Fashion Union high neck top with pleated detailing: £10.00 was £18.00 
ASOS sterling silver square sovereign ring: £12.00 (not in sale but used 10% off UNIDAYS code).
WAVEN freya skinny jeans: £14.00 was £48.00
ASOS washed casual tapered peg trousers: £19.50 was £28.00


The first item I purchased is a sovereign ring. If you know me at all, you will be aware of my obsession with rings. Ever since I was a little girl I always spent my pocket money on little rings from New Look and Topshop - you know, the ones that you can only wear for a week before your gingers turn into mini Shrek's. But even now, I am a fond wearer of rings and always always always have at least three on. Well, I've been on the hunt for a sovereign style pinky ring, which I am yet to discover. However, I saw this one online and convinced myself I needed it - it didn't take much persuasion put it that way. I bought this in a size medium, as I usually opt for the smallest size but wanted this to be a ring for my bigger fingers. And I love it. It's sterling silver so £12.00 was not a bad price at all, and I am certain this is going to become an every day piece of jewellery so I am very impressed. I would definitely recommend ASOS for inexpensive sterling silver rings, as they do stock a wide variety and I nearly always find one that I like the look of. A big winner here.



Next up, this jumper and pair of jeans. Now this jumper is particularly important because it is from Fashion Union, and I have never purchased anything by this brand before. I also have been toying with a wide sleeved jumper for a while and thought this was a great opportunity and I must say, it feels incredibly soft and I think it looks quite flattering, considering the slouchy fit and wide sleeves that obviously do not have a fitted style. I am yet to wear this and style this, however based on first impressions, I like this a lot.

Now, these jeans are from WAVEN, another brand I have never branched out to. This purchase was the one that I felt most sceptical about, as not in the sale these a relatively high end denim. I also am not a fan of blue skinny jeans, but I do like these. Again, I am yet to style them in a way fits my style, but on first impressions I am impressed. They are a very snug fit, and they do take a bit of wriggling to get them on, but once they are on they feel great, they're soft and comfortable, but I am obviously yet to see how they feel after a days wearing. I will keep you all updated.


These trousers, which are actually a washed black colour even though in the first picture on this post they came out grey - think it may have been the lighting. I wore these for the first time yesterday, and styled them with just a basic black tee but I am in love. They are incredibly baggy so if you don't like that look then you will definitely hate these. However, I think they're really cool and comfortable, and almost act as a slightly smarter jogger style pant. They're really lovely and I am so glad I ordered them.


Last of all, this high neck top also from Fashion Union. I really really like this. The fit is very snug but is completely flattering and looks particularly smart so can smarten up an outfit for instance with jeans and some converse which is what I have styled it with today. The neck is quite tight fitting, but still has that loose look that creates the ultimate comfort. I cannot describe to you enough how lovely this top is, and despite the fact its quite sheer which some of you may not like, I think it makes it look even more interesting. A HUGE hit from me. If it is still available in your size, I would highly recommend you grabbing it.

So that's it from me today, but I will see you all very soon for another traditional style blog post from me. Do let me know what you've thought of this different kind of review blog post, and whether it has helped you in any way. See you soon!!!

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

October 21st 2016. An evening of reflection.

Hello!
So, picture this: A slightly sleep deprived student perched on the step of the backdoor, coffee to hand. The sweet sound of Nick Mulvey's album First Mind complimenting the silence of an empty house. A cold, crisp evening in midst October and a wandering mind. I decided to write this post as an expression of reflection and contentment, a diversion from the usual materialistic posts on fashion items and styling attempts.

I would firstly just like to apologise for not posting in a few weeks, but as you may or may not know, I have just began my university adventure and despite the fact I have only been here three weeks, I feel as though its already been a lifetime of experiences and lessons learned.

First day of uni
University has honestly been the most insane journey so far: the almost sleepless nights; extreme consumption of alcohol and trying to find my way around university and the town I now call home. I have enjoyed every hungover moment and I simply feel like I needed …

HEY DUDES!

In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

sorry about the awful brow game...lol

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…
