OOTD: Sick Girl's Diary
I'm technically bluffing.
The outfit I am showing today was from yesterday and I have another outfit from a few days ago that I have yet shown when I first got my bangs but I was eager to get my verdict on the ASOS Curve Soft Frill Belted Dress out before I forget what I want to say about it and my bangs looked so horrible in the other photos. Pardon my pale look, I was pretty down with flu, fever, cough and bodyache but I had to go back to work to take care of some stuff. To make up for my lack in spirit, I whisked out a cute dress and was very grateful that I put on a warm cover because I felt cold the entire day.
I also wanted to gush about my necklace. You can't see it up close and personal because I forgot to take a picture of it but it was my singular, most expensive buy when I was in Paris in 2009. Later, I thought I lost it for good when I lost my luggage en route to Paris from Rome but the airlines found my luggage and redirected it back to me a month later and I was so happy to have it back in my life. The engraving on the necklace says "chaque baiser est un tremblement de terre". It is a quote from Lord Byron and means something like "every kiss is a tremble of the earth". Isn't it perfectly, wonderfully romantic and sappy?! In case you are interested, the necklace is from Sandrine Ziegler.Verdict on the ASOS Curve Soft Frill Belted Dress:
I love the dress the moment I saw it. It is a gorgeous grey, it looks incredibly feminine with all the frills and the frills in turn, had a romantic notion that appealed to me. When the dress arrived, I was a little disappointed without even putting it on. Granted that I know that the dress is kind of chiffon-y and I expect it to be rather thin but the lining that was used on the inside feels like it is inferior and rather flimsy, something that I ,as a klutz, would rip apart. Fitting-wise, this dress is also a lot more snug and body-fitting. While I can say that I am able to fit into most of ASOS UK20 dresses but this is one dress that I am not confident of fitting myself into. Just as well that I got it in my usual UK22. Final verdict? This is a dress that is best bought during sales! Bowdicts for the ASOS Curve Soft Frill Belted Dress:Dress: ASOS Curve Soft Frill Belted Dress
