ASOS Knitted Dress

This dress is from ASOS and I'm not usually keen on knitted dresses because I find that they usually stretch after a while. However, I bought this as it was in the sales (now only £19.00) and it is rather suitable for Autumn. I opted for the nice shade of coral pink but it is also available in cream too. I mentioned on my blog a few weeks back that these black wedges are now in the sales but the black ones are sold out now. They were originally £45.00 and I purchased them when they were first in the sales at £30.00 but now there's an extra 50% off! Here's the link to the orange version.

Although it is really awesome to be gifted clothes from time to time for which I'm entirely grateful for, it doesn't beat the feeling of showing you a full outfit of things I've bought with my own money. It's a sense of excitement and I get a buzz from the feedback because I feel it's more personal, and to me, I think that's what blogging is all about. It's almost like coming back from shopping, and showing your friends what you've bought, and getting a real honest opinion from them as to what they think of your purchases. I am aware that a lot of people have expressed how annoyed they get when bloggers show an entire outfit where every single item is gifted or PR sample. Although, I have never done that before because I personally like to mix things up, and I don't have a problem with what people blog about (we are all free to do what we want as the author or owner of the blog) but I do listen to what is being said and want everyone to know that I take this feedback on board. 

I have a bunch of day trip photos to show you which I'm extremely excited about, I want to show you all what I've been up to on my days off this summer. I didn't go abroad this year - the closest I've been to a beach holiday this year is browsing other people's holiday snaps on instagram! We didn't venture very far on our days out. I feel really lucky that there are some really beautiful, scenic places for me to go that are only 1-2 hours drive away. Before all of that, though, I have a few blog duties for a couple of fashion brands to commit to. They are fun things that I'll be blogging about. One is of course to show you Hero&Cape's new lookbook, and the other is that I've been asked to blog about the Jules B store launch next week. I feel a little left out as I'm not able to attend Fashion's Night Out, or LFW (I don't think I'll ever be brave enough to go, let alone apply!!!), both Hero&Cape and Jules B are northern fashion comapnies, so we'll have ourselves a little northern fashion party this month! x

  18. I love this colour on you, suits your skin tone.

    I bought some wedges like that recently from H&M, but they didn't fit and when I took them back they didn't have a size up. :(

  27. Gosh you look amazing in that dress, they should have you on the website, I never would've considered it when looking at it on the website! Model in the making :)

    You always look lovely, and I agree, it's definitely nice to mix things up a bit with your outfits. And nothing beats wearing something that people seem to love, that you've purchased yourself!
