So to get back into the swing of things, I’ve decided to start a weekly segment called Want It Wednesday, where I’ll be writing about the things I’m currently lusting after! I’m hoping that this new segment will help me stick to a regular schedule, manage my time better, help me improve my writing and, most importantly, find my voice in this blogging world (#cheese).
This cute little number from ASOS is what I’m loving this week for a number of reasons. The first reason is that it’s from ASOS Petite, which is a massive plus! I’m a small girl. I’m 5″1 (and a half) and it’s a struggle to find dresses that fall at the length I want, which is at the tip of my thumb when I put my arms to the sides. I like my dresses short – but not too short – because I find that it makes my legs look a little bit longer, and hey, I need all the help I can get.
I’m not a massive fan of overly busy pieces of clothing and maybe that’s why I like this dress so much; the plain back works well with the floral accents to the front to highlight the dress without overpowering it. The tiered detailing catches my eye because it adds a flirty touch to the dress and the lovely shade of blue – cobalt if we’re being specific – would definitely add a pop of colour to my usually black, white and grey wardrobe. Plus, this colour usually compliments my skin tone, which is something I sometimes worry about when it comes to buying clothes.
I’ve never understood the fascination with loose fitting or bell sleeves. I used to think they were hideous, because deep down I worried it would draw even more attention to my twiggy arms if I ever wore one. Now though, I own a total of two – yes two – tops with bell sleeves and this is probably another reason why I’m crushing hard on this dress. If I wasn’t trying to be so hard on myself with money and saving money, this dress – with an affordable price tag of £32 – would probably already be on its way to me right now.
