Dress Dilema!!

Every day, without fail, I check ASOS CURVE for new pieces. I check everyday and yet it is only updated every few. After revising since 1pm, I realised it was nearly 8 and I hadn't yet checked the website. To my delight and frustration I have found the most beautiful dress. It is part of both the ASOS SALON range as well as the ASOS CURVE range. I was happy to see such an amazing piece in such a selection of sizes, however this happiness quickly faded when I realised the dress costs £150!! Worth every penny, but unfortuntely, 15000 pennies over my disposable cash.

I love an item that can be easily dressed up for an evening or down to go shopping in the sun. It is romantic and light, the fabric looks beautiful and I know that it is something I would wear until it fell to pieces (this has happened before).


The dress is described on the website as:
"Dress by ASOS CURVE. Featuring an all-over floral design with glitter spots, adjustable slim shoulder straps, a back zip closure, a ruched panel to the centre bust, a frilled peplum detail around the waist and a lightweight full maxi skirt.

This dress is exclusive to the ASOS CURVE range.

ABOUT ASOS SALON
Taking inspiration from vintage style, our ASOS SALON collection offers the ultimate fashion escapism. Beautiful appliqué finishes, floral shapes and a palette of sugary, ice-cream shades, channel soft romance, whilst bold pops of neon colour keep the collection directional. Sampling ladylike style from a range of decades, intricately beaded, ‘20s style, shift dresses sit alongside ‘60s inspired lace minis, whilst a full skirted, ‘50s style prom dress, in chocolate florals, forms a centrepiece to the collection. ASOS SALON offers a covetable capsule collection of occasionwear pieces with a feminine aesthetic."

Okay...so when I finish college (which is in, roughly, 3 weeks) I will be free to get a job and in between saving for my trip to Australia, I will pray this dress doesn't sell out and then snap it up.

Let me know what items you are currently coveting!! Or the websites that you visit a little too often!??
