Files of New: Asos

Hey guys, I wanted to show you a few new things that I recently purchased over at For me it was actually a major haul  (8 items in total), after quite a long time without any serious shopping. The parcel arrived last week and since then I took full advantage of Asos’s 15% off discount code that ended yesterday to order a massive amount of dresses, thus I am currently borderline broke . You”ll be seeing all my purchases as soon as they arrive (hopefully soon, cannot wait!) but until then, let’s review the order that had arrived.

Melissa Planet Hits

First I  bought a pair of Melissa flats. This is one of my favorite brands and when they are on sale, I usually don’t hesitate (well, depends on how much on sale.) Anyways, these are the Melissa Planet Hits flats and most sizes are still available. After trying  them on and walking around the house in them, I think they are cute shoes but I kinda liked them better in the product photos somehow. I don’t know, maybe it’s because they sort of clash with my tattoos or something. But I still like them and maybe they’ll work better with tights or depending on the outfit? I was trying them on with my PJ’s..

Next up is probably my favorite item of the bunch. It’s New Look‘s Vanity Square Bowler Bag. It cost a ridiculous 11 pounds and is just gorgeous. Of course the materials used aren’t that perfect but I think  it still will get a lot of wear and the cost per wear will be like zilch.  There’s only one bag left so if you want it, I recommend snapping it up asap.

Next up is another favorite (and sadly, it’s out of stock). This Asos Vintage Style Octagonal Dial watch is just adorable. It’s dainty and wears more just a bracelet than a watch. I can picture wearing it with a carefree attitude, a summer dress and a pair of flat sandals. Which is basically how I am envisioning my entire summer (well, with the exception of a few date nights wearing some fabulous heels!) and I’ve been wearing it non-stop (partly because it’s the only watch in my collection that has a functioning battery, ops.)

Next up is a pair of very casual shoes. Asos Dockland plimsolls. I bought them with our summer London trip in mind and thought they would be perfect for walks around town, while staying true to my esthetic what with the leopard print and all. I’ll be honest and say I’m a tad disappointed with them, the material is very coarse and I bought a size UK6 and it’s a very tight fit. I think maybe if I stretch them out some they may feel better on and hopefully the material will get softer too but as I was trying them on around the flat, they definitely were not the most comfortable.

Next I bought two kitsch items, both from Gogo Philip. First up is a massive pair of earrings. These toucan earrings are boarder line insane and are also currently out of stock.The ladybird ring is also out of stock, but I can understand that more. The ring is adjustable (lucky for me because otherwise it would be too small) and the ladybug on it is adorable. I’m so happy about them both. I may not wear them that often but I like to collect strange and kitsch jewelry to add interesting elements to my outfits.

The next two items were unfortunately missing from my parcel, I contacted Asos (right after opening the parcel and finding them missing) and they have replied me and I will be refunded because both items are out of stock. I seemed to have bought lots of last pieces!

I have really good experience as a shopper with Asos. Anything goes wrong and they’re on it straight away! I once was sent two left shoes! And I wrote them and they told me to send the shoes back and then they resent me the shoes and I was also refunded the shipping cost of sending them the shoes. So I’m definitely NOT worried about shopping with Asos. The 15% discount is over but there’s still some bargain pieces to be found, so I definitely recommend stopping by. Oh, all opinions are my own and I didn’t get paid for writing this post, I just genuinely love Asos and am a happy customer.

My kinda lady

The second most viewed post over on my old blog had been a style inspiration post (with no text whatsoever) with a thematic cohesiveness consisting of some of my favorite quirky female fictional characters. I’ve decided to revamp the old post here because I’m still so inspired by them all. The ladies have loads of style and some serious character.

Classy With a Twist


I don’t always take the time to do my hair. Actually, on most days, I either wear a very lazy side braid (or the Katniss braid, as some people call  it) or an even lazier pony tail or I just leave it down (that’s on the laziest days of all). But lately I have been making more of an effort on the hair frontier: I’ve played with styling my long fringe, which I have been letting grow out, I’ve tried pigtail braids, I’ve done the messy bun. I’ve also recently bought a large hair doughnut, which I used to achieve the hair style shown in this particular post. It’s really easy to use and looks quite put together, it gives a level of sophistication to an otherwise casual outfit.

Piggy Day

Dracul the Pig

Today was an extremely busy day as our Pig Club hosted an event for the piggies. Vaccinations, pig pedicures, dental care, you name it, they had it.  Luckily it didn’t rain this year! It was really nice to talk to people with pet pigs as obviously, we have something in common and Dracul (my babe) got to interact with other piggies. As these happenings can get a bit messy (well, they are pigs and they do like to root in the ground) I wore a very casual and sporty outfit. It’s as sporty as I go, actually. I wore one of my oldest pairs of shoes, Adidas superstar trainers, a pair of old jeans and an oversized sweater. To ensure that all of Drac’s things fit, I opted for a huge tote bag in neon green. It may not have been the most stylish outfit, but it served it’s purpose and I had a good time. And sometimes, that’s what it’s all about.
