This dress is one of my favourite shades of bright, notice-me, kermit green. Whilst it’s important that the clothes I wear are a bargain, the quality of the material also matters a helluva lot. The textured fabric of this dress feels luxury thick, hangs very nicely, and the garment as a whole appears to be constructed very well. No snaggy zips for a change! Yes, ASOS!!
There are two main things that I really like about this dress: firstly the sleeves are a great length, they cut off just above the elbow and are not tight at all. I also love the black ribbon sewn at the waist, it cuts out the need for a belt.
This dress is absolutely true to size, I got the UK18 and it fits me exactly. The faux wrap detailing at the front of the dress makes the front hem longer than the back.
The only criticism I have would be that the bust could do with being a little more generous, if you are over an F cup you may struggle with the structured fabric – it does not have a lot of stretch for larger busts.
I swiftly realised the overcast skies were not giving the best lighting for our purposes so I moved nearer the big windows to take some pictures in better light to give a truer impression of the vivid colour of the dress. You can clearly see in the picture above how the dress is shorter at the back. But bear in mind I am 5’10”, on most this will fall mid thigh to knee length at it’s shortest point.
I’m v.happy to report that the cost of this whole outfit is £31. The dress is currently £21 in the ASOS sale, the same dress in a lovely shade of orangey red is only £13! My old faithful Peacocks peep-toe flats are £7. These flats are so damn versatile, I need to go back and buy another 8 pairs before they stop selling them! The bag was a gift from my mother and the jewellery is all from charity shops: £1 for the blue and gold ring, £2 for the goldtone earrings. Success!
