i’m a big fan of asos…who isn’t? in fact, when i decided to revamp this ol’ blog here, it was my asos coat that i decided to feature in my debut post. soooooo…when their senior director of fashion PR contacted me about coming by the ames hotel in boston to preview the fall & holiday collection, i *jumped* at the chance! like literally (there was an earthquake here in boston today apparently while i was at the hotel but i didn’t feel it…hahaha)! guess all those gorgeous shoes & clothes already knocked me off my rocker ^_^
first of all, the layout in the ames hotel was very lovely. kevin & austin kindly greeted me & had yummy fruit, pastries & other brunch-y items waiting. the clothes & accessories were all laid out & presented very cozily, very intimate, living room style. *of course*…i zeroed in on the shoes first. already familiar with asos’s website, i knew they always had a premium selection of the footwear i most favor…chunky, high platforms in bold colors…and this preview did NOT disappoint! see those very miu miu-esque glittery booties & sandals? oh come holiday time, they WILL be mine…oh yes!
once i was done drooling over
my future babies the shoes, kevin was nice enough to walk me through the collection & point out the hottest items for the fall & winter. their collection of coats & other outerwear is always off the chart…more fitted, more architectural, more unique than any other frumpy coats you’ve ever worn…promise! thankfully, seems like leopard & printed blouses (especially those of animal silhouettes) are going nowhere any time soon. i don’t know about you, but i still loves me some animal print & it would never go out of style for me :) one item i really loved was the “najavo” dress. now, i know tribal & ikat were popular for summer & this kind of native american print seems well suited to transition & mute those types of favored bright patterns quite appropriately into fall. absolutely love it!
what i really love most about asos though is that with the eleventibillion products on their website, you’d be hard pressed to find yourself at an event with another
bitch girl wearing your same outfit. i like how i’ve never (even on other blogs) seen anyone with my asos coat! know how many times a day when i wear a certain skirt (from a certain very large fast fashion megastore) out, i hear, “oh i have that same skirt”? not fun. shoes *however* are a different thing. i’m already shoe twins with several of my blogger friends & when they see this awesome shoe gear when they preview the asos collection for themselves, i have a feeling in a few short months, we’ll all be sporting the same glittery platform gloriousness! hahaha!
