OOTD: ASOS Curve Peter Pan Dress
I've been overwrought with jealousy upon seeing Topshop's
array of Peter Pan collared blouses. ASOS
had also been coming up with a fair amount of droolworthy Peter Pan tops and dresses but the only one they've made for the Curve nation is the embellished one
which I wasn't really interested in. How is that fair? The Curve nation has every right to Peter Pan collars and scallop hem shorts!
When ASOS Curve finally came up with the Peter Pan Collar Jersey Dress
, I knew this was the moment - the moment the Curve nation had been waiting for to snatch this up and I did too, in two colours because I simply couldn't decide which!
The funny thing is shortly after I took these pictures with my lace parasol bought from Beijing, I saw ASOS selling the same type of parasol
in white! I bought mine at one-fifth its price so I am feeling this odd kind of satisfaction!
Verdict on the ASOS Curve Peter Pan Collar Jersey Dress:
I bought my usual size 22 and the first immediate thought is you can size down
! And not just by one size. I am fairly confident of being able to fit 2 sizes down. The blouson sleeves were kind of airy instead of fitted and the waist was simply big for me. If I didn't belt it up, it looked kind of matronly on me. There is a button at the back collar which is there for you to undo if you need to fit your head in and it keeps falling out. However a cute dress is a cute dress, after I made the necessary adjustments to belt it, it looked much better and I love that it is knee-length on me because I can twirl in this! The boss told me I looked 1950s and I educated him on what Peter Pan collars are. Someone told me I looked like a schoolgirl which in his
definition is a good thing because men like to think of schoolgirls in the most inappropriate manner. Another someone told me I looked pretty in which I told him "Always", earning a thumbs up for my confidence. The material is very soft and comfortable and I felt really happy in it the entire day.Bowdicts for the ASOS Curve Peter Pan Collar Jersey Dress: Half a bow is taken off for the size irregularity and the button that never stays buttoned.
