Summer of ASOS

Though I often spend upwards of three hours a week browsing through the wondrous wares of ASOS – especially their selection of all-occasion dresses; I have never before purchased anything from the site – instead, building an extensive Wish List of must-haves. So you can imagine my excitement when I was offered the opportunity to go on a mini ASOS shopping spree a few weeks back; resulting in a collection of summer-perfect accessories and, one of my favorite things…beauty supplies.

ASOS Metal Bar Detail Envelope Clutch - I ♥ the aesthetic of envelope clutches, and have been searching for one in a color that was playful enough for summer afternoons coupled with denim, yet sophisticated enough for balmy evenings coupled with dresses. This Clutch fit the bill. I purchased the Rose Pink, which I find leans more towards the Coral family (exactly what I was looking for); which features gold-tone metal accents on the flap and sides - très glamorous!

ASOS Wrapped Claw Ring in Gold - My overall style is girly / feminine, but I love edgy accessories like the Claw and Thorn Rings from Elizabeth and James (which are beyond gorgeous but completely out of my price range); thus, I instantly gravitated to the Wrapped Claw Ring in Gold. What I love is that this is undoubtedly a statement ring, but it is also very subtle and dainty. Not to mention an extreme conversation-starter – I’ve received compliments galore whenever I wear it.

Pieces Helle Jade Stone Ring - It was love at first sight with this ring. The antique, scrollwork aesthetic coupled with the diamante detailing adds such a rich, Monarch-like vibe to any outfit. I am still in awe over the beauty featured in this piece – especially for the price ($10.44).

Rimmel London Vinyl Lip Gloss in Take A Chance - I’m a sucker for lip gloss, and have never before tried Rimmel London products, so I thought this was the perfect time for a little beauty experimentation. Out of the six Vinyl Lip Gloss shades available on ASOS, I chose Take A Chance. Take A Chance is a nude lip gloss with flecks of subtle pink and gold shimmer, that looks super glam when the light catches it.

And that, my loves, is the end of my ASOS shopping spree!

What’s on your ASOS wish list right now?


Fashionably yours!

I have never been to an ASOS store before, so I have no idea what I'd buy. I seriously believe I need a personal stylist/shopper.
