So, another Asos order has arrived, and it’s the order my partner made as a Valentine’s Day gift to me. I thought I’d do a quick post on what I received. Along with that my Fever London dress turned up, sent from a package forwarding service, and I’m very happy with my experience.
Incidently, while I was taking these pictures I discovered that it is really, really hard to take decent pictures that show off clothes accurately. Fashion models and bloggers, I tip my hat to you. I had no idea how hard your job was. Forgive my mediocre pictures.
Firstly, a Warehouse 3/4 Length Dress:
I really like this dress. It fits well, it’s comfortable, and would be great to take travelling as a ‘good dress’ as it doesn’t really crease. This dress was £15 (size 10) but Asos and the Warehouse website are now sold out. You can still buy it from asossale on Ebay, and you can check her stock for any other Asos clothing you lusted after but missed out on. Unfortunately, she only ships within Europe, so if you live anywhere else you will need to use a package forwarding service.
Next up is the Asos Square Neck Bodycon Dress in red (longer length):
I really like this dress too. The material is stretchy and has a similar length to the Wardrobe dress above. The sleeves make it great for transitioning into autumn, and red is one of my favourite colours. It was £40 (size 12).
Yumi Knitted Heart Confetti Print Jumper Dress:
This jumper dress was a bit of a wild card which I’m hoping to pair with some black opaque stockings for winter. It is a bit big on me (I bought the medium), but I suspect that it’s the style of the garment. It’s more casual than the other dresses I bought, but I think it’ll be really warm and comfortable to wear in winter. This dress was £19.
Fever London Escala Prom Dress:
Whilst this dress is by Fever London, I actually purchased it from the discount website BrandAlley. As they were having a fantastic sale on Fever London dresses but don’t ship outside of England, I used a packaging forwarding service based in England called UKBrandsWorldwide.com to buy this dress and one other for a friend. The costings were as follows:
-Service charge – £15.00
-BrandAlley purchase price (for two dresses, the one above and one for a friend) – £38.00 + Delivery charge from BrandAlley – £4.95
-Shipping to Australia – £20.00
-Paypal fees – £3.37
Total – £81.32
I was really happy dealing with this company. Whilst package forwarding is always a costly affair, I loved how transparent all the costings were. They sent me a total quote before they placed my order and asked me if I was happy to proceed. I’d be very happy to deal with them again.
The dress itself cost me £19 and was ordered in a size 10. This colour is no longer available, but Fever London have just released the same dress in a beige/gold combination as part of their new collection. Very beautiful.
