Greetings! I'm a sucker for travel themed dresses and this post serves as proof for the second time within this week alone! This dress is from ASOS and it's called the Bow Detail Cut Out Skater Dress in Postcard Print. Sadly it sold out immediately, as did it's equally cute skirt twin counterpart, but you can click the links to see if it's restocked and better investigate if you want to try to find it on eBay.
I love this dress because the color scheme is perfect and the print is to die for it's so beautiful. It's elegant and summery at once too, which I love. I typically don't "love" cut out dresses, but lately I've been softening to some that are in this style. This cut out is very subtle too, especially with the bow over it, so whether you love the style or not it's not a huge deal.
I've been having a bigger love affair with ASOS lately as they've been really catering to my current style mood, which can best be described as flirty classic looks. I think ASOS can be an untapped resource for most vintage loving girls as they have so many timeless and dramatic looks.
ASOS sizing is something I'm still tackling! Honestly, this dress (size 0 for measure) is a little tight around the rib cage. I'm going to try a steaming trick I learned about in a Facebook group to help it expand just a little bit. Everything else fits perfectly and if I had gotten a 2 I think it would have been too big!! They have a feature the recommends what size you should be based on a) questions about sizing in other brands and your measurements you can fill out and b) on past purchases you made. I don't think this gadget is a perfect science yet as ASOS has been wrong in both directions for me before (too big and too small).
Rounding everything out I accessories with mostly Kate Spade (duh) and my Jessica Simpson yellow sandal heels I got from Poshmark last year. And to finish I wore this amazing Erstwilder brooch involving a beach babe and a surf board. In the summer time my brooch game goes out the window since so many tops and dresses don't lend themselves to brooch wearing, so it was nice having a thick strap to attach this summery Surf Rescue brooch to!
What's been everyone's favorite place to shop at lately? Does anyone have secrets to wearing brooches with spaghetti straps, ha? I hope everyone is having a lovely August so far!
