So, ASOS. I've seen and heard of the site around before, but I didn't pay too too much attention. After my last batch of potential engagement picture dresses bombed, I decided measures needed to be taken. Lo and behold, ASOS was having some Memorial Day promos and I decided to hop on the wagon.
Of course, it was a fantastic sale and I waited a few days before I checked the status of my order. And it said "Order Cancelled." WTF.
Come to find out, my credit card company had cancelled the order due to suspicious activity. Do they even KNOW me?!
Fortunately, ASOS gave me a new promo code (love their customer service!) and I was able to re-submit... but unfortunately, due to the awesome promo, a lot of the sizes I needed were sold out. Darn it.
I really can't decide what I think of half the dresses. This is why we don't give ourselves a month of harsh scrutiny to prep for engagement photos. I would probably have done better with 48 hours notice, done.
And now, the dresses. I added sizes and prices for reference.
First up, the ASOS Midi Body-Conscious Dress With Deep V Neck- Black, US8 $27.
Next up, ASOS Midi Dress In Animal Print- Print US 8, $61.
Unlike some of the other size 8's I was poured into... this bad boy was huge. And had a cutout at the back that I didn't realize. NEXT.
This was the one I was probably most looking forward to.... and it sold out in the 10 I was going to order. I squeezed into the 8, but barely.
Looking at it again, I actually don't hate the way it looks... but boy was it a circus trying to get in and out of it. It's not even available online anymore... the one that got away.
The next one is quite a bit more casual than the others - we are actually having pictures taken in a downtown/urban-ish setting, and then some taken out in nature... I think this one would fit the "nature" pics a bit more... but dang I wish it were a bit nicer material. I can see myself wearing this again.
Of course, it's also just about 1 size too small, no larger sizes available in any colors online. ASOS Midi Dress With Ballet Wrap, Navy US 6 $38
Too much boob and some weird underarm fat showing. Whyyyyy?!
