Breaking Boundaries Without Breaking The Bank

Since I discovered ASOS Curve I have developed a slight obsession with their clothes. I quite literally want to be rich enough to have each of their dresses in my wardrobe - Hopefully my Euromillions ticket will do me proud tonight!

Unfortunately, ASOS Curve aren't doing much to help my addiction by announcing 'silly' sales that make me want to sell my mother (sorry mum) to buy them!

I had a little browse on the ASOS Curve 50% sale today and was pleasantly surprised to see that they had 12 different dresses, in my size all for under £15.00 each. They had loads of dresses that were slightly more too! Very impressive.

I always think when something is that cheap you can afford to try something new and be a little adventurous  I am sure lots of us are guilty of sticking to the same styles when it comes to items that we buy - I know I am! However  for less than £15 all of these dresses are ones that I probably wouldn't immediately buy, but would love to try!

Cold Shoulder Dress In Floral



I have to admit, I don't own any cold shoulder dresses or tops which is a shame really because I really like the look of them. What I like about this dress is that the bold, floral pattern is something I am used to wearing so trying something like this would not be too much out of my comfort zone. I really would love to try and cold shoulder dress and I think for £15.00 it is the perfect time to try it! You can buy this dress here.

Sundress In Star Print



I always say I don;t mind getting my arms out, but when you look through my wardrobe you'll see most items are sleeved. This star print dress caught my eye a few weeks ago and since then it has been reduced in price (to just £15!) which makes it even more desirable. 2 of my friends have the dress and it's really pretty & wears well so I am glad to see it in the sale, which tempts me to buy it (BAD ASOS!). You can buy this dress here.

Skater Dress With Ballet Wrap And Short Sleeve


 


I bought this dress when it was originally in the sale - though I think it has been reduced even more now! I sized down on this from my usual size and found that it fit fine. I only have one quite drunk photo of me wearing the dress, but you get the idea! The material is quite heavy which I think makes it great for the cooler weather and for £13.00 I don't think you can go far wrong! You can buy this dress here.

Bodycon Dress With Panelled Print



I need more bodycon dresses in my life and who doesn't need more pretty dresses filling up their wardrobes? I love the pattern of this dress - I don't actually own anything that is panelled so I would love to try this! (and for just £12.50 why not!). You can buy this dress here.

Do sales tempt you to try new things, or would you rather stick to what you know?

Skater Girl Indulges

I know I rant quite a lot about body image issues, but as a BBW blog I feel it is important to also bring you plus size bargains and clothes that I like. I know that as a self-confessed fat chick it can be hard to fit clothes you like, that fit, that you can actually afford.

One of my new-found faves is ASOS Curve. I know I am quite late to the party with this website, but I really am loving everything that they have on offer at the moment.

Last week I picked up this bargain of a grey skater dress and decided to wear it to Club Indulge on Saturday.

Skater Dress With Sweetheart Neckline And Short Sleeve

I really like the fit of the dress and the fact that it is long enough to wear without leggings - although it would look pretty funky teamed up with leggings. That is the beauty of a dress like this, the choice is yours! I found it very flattering around the bust and it was more than comfortable to wear all night. I bought a size down from my usual size and it still fit fine. For just £15.00 in their current ASOS Curve sale, it really is a must have for any wardrobe. Get yours here

I teamed it up with my other new found love - a necklace from Black Heart Creatives. I have three of these now - I'll blog about my other favourite necklace another time. I got comments on my necklace all night long, with loads of other ladies wanting to get their hands on one!




I wore the outfit to Club Indulge - which is a relatively new plus size party that was held in London Bridge. Held in champagne bar right next to the Hilton Hotel the summer mixer event did threaten to be ruined by rain but actually the 4th Club Indulge was quite possibly my favourite one yet. The next one is at the end of August and if you haven't been to one before, I would recommend it!

 
The night did get a bit blurry - I blame the wine!

My First Ever ASOS Curve Purchase


When I read about the ASOS Curve last week, I had to make a purchase. Having never bought from ASOS  Curve before I wasn't 100% sure what to buy - but in the end I opted for 3 new dresses... I know, surprising! haha

My bargain purchase came a few days later, all packed lovely and securely - How exciting!



A little sneak peak of what I bought! ;)
My favourite dress from the 3 I bought (I'll more than likely blog about them all at some point) was the T-Shirt Dress In Letter Print that was a bargain at £13.00 in the sale!


I decided to wear it out on Saturday night and really liked the fit. As I am quite short, it was just the right length for me to wear as a dress without leggings, exactly what I needed for the heatwave that we experienced this weekend.


I liked the lightweight material of the dress, which made it comfortable to wear all night.
I put the photos up on Facebook the next day and someone pointed out there is an unfortunate choice of words across the front, made up in the random pattern in the lettering. ASOS Curve have apologised, refunded my money and assured me that it isn't the same on every dress!

All in all, despite the word in the pattern (which once you see it, you can't help but notice it every time) I was really impressed with the dress & the service I received from ASOS and so would definitely recommend them and their clothes to anyone looking for somewhere new to shop.

Have you shopped at ASOS Curve before, what did you think?
