Yesterday, was my last day of work for the next few days and since I was at the museum, I got to wear one of my recent purchases from Asos. I mentioned a while back that I took full advantage of their sale and this was one of the pieces I picked up.
Cardigan: Old Navy (10 years ago)
I have to say this dress was a bit of an impulse buy when I saw it drop down to $17. I liked the print, but I've never really been too keen on pastels and pinks. I have, however, been wanting to get out of my comfort zone with color and felt this dress was the perfect price and print for experimentation. I like the dress and love the pleating. I do, however, wish that the pleating was a bit lower down as it hits at a very strange place above my hips and with the added fabric from the pockets, there is an extra bulkiness around the hips that I'm not overly keen on. As y'all know, I adore an exaggerated feminine shape, but this dress misses the mark because of how the pockets and pleats lay against my body. The print is lovely and the colors are very bold, which I've been noticing a lot from Asos recently. I do wish this dress would have come in more than one color option as I think it would have been beautiful in jewel tones as well. Overall, I'm pleased with it and I'm glad that I've been branching out with color.
