I have a huge problem with buying clothes, I'm about 5'7 which is average but I do have quite a long upper body and shorter legs so it can be hard to find things since the in thing now is "cropped" tops and jackets. I also have fairly broad shoulders a large rib cage. So just for safety reasons I measure myself at least a couple times and allow myself 1-2 inches just for a little bit of grace.
I bought two things from ASOS.com (which is a UK clothing website) they have a huge variety of items in a huge variety of price points. The thing I really liked about the website is on the left side bar it gives you tons of options, from size and color to the price your wanting to spend on something. Their clearance section is also phenomenal. As well as clothing ASOS sells shoes other accessories and makeup
These are the two items I bought:
The black and white print dress is for a baptism I'm going to in the beginning of July. I bought this dress on sale for only $33.24 which was a mark down from $59.09 its a really light weight dress and it will be perfect for the event. The only problem is that I bought it in a size too small, it fit me perfectly everywhere except the chest. So I ordered a second one and shipped the first one back for a refund. The second dress I bought (the white one) is a really REALLY light weight dress, its called a Cheesecloth tunic dress. I bought this dress on sale for $19.48 and it was marked down from $24.79! I thought that this would be perfect for summer and great for hot weather in general.
Overall I'm really happy with the speed at which ASOS sends items out and the short turn around from when I buy an item to when I actually receive an item (which to me in Ontario is about 7 days!) They're order confirmation email comes almost immediately and your shipping notification comes quickly too (either on the business day you place an order if its early enough. Or the next upcoming business day)
My absolute favourite thing about ASOS is that aside from just being able to look at the clothing they have an on the cat walk thingy where they show a model walking in the piece of clothing. This give you such a great indication of how it falls on the body from all angles and how it will move around when you walk... I applaud you ASOS! lol
I will be buying from ASOS again!
