Pineapple Express

Monday, April 01, 2013

I hope you all had a wonderful chocolate filled Easter and are enjoying a Monday holiday if you are lucky enough to not work in retail.

Now for the Pineapple bit. I saw this dress on ASOS straight range ad fell in love. As the range only goes up to an 18 I had much doubt about the fit on my size 24/26 body. After buying the oversized tshirt from ASOS a few weeks ago and being shocked at how huge it actually was in an 18 I figured I should at least try it and see. Since ASOS has free delivery and returns I wasn't going to lose any money.


As you can see the size 18 fits! Its a better length than the size 24 ASOS items I have bought.


The sleeves are snug and tsirt length like they are supposed to be. if this was a 24 they would be 3/4 length on me.


This style of dress is called Swing and is an A shape in a stretch material. There is plenty room for my bust and it flares out so no cling to hips or belly.


I added my Romwe collar and gold Primark brogues for a simple summer fruity outfit. It just goes to yet again prove that size means nothing. You have to try stuff on!!!


I also got this cute glasses hair clip from ASOS.

Dress - ASOS size 18 £25
Collar - Romwe £8
Brogues - Primark
Glasses Hair Clip - ASOS £6

    1. its a quite high round neck :) so it worked well with the collar as most are low cut which a are great to show of the boobs but sometimes its nice to be a little more modest! lol x

  5. I've just discovered your blog and I love it!

    Also wanted to comment that I think ASOS do their sizes quite big. I found an ASOS dress in a charity shop for £10 (bargain) It was a size 10 and form fitting and I'm a very pear-shaped 12-14, still I thought I'd try it on. Apart from a bit of tightness around the sleeves, it fitted me perfectly!

    This is good in one way as you've found a dress that you originally thought was out of your size range, but annoying if you're expecting consistency in clothes sizing. Oh well.
