“ Brand: Asos / Type: Blouse „
Knowing I was joining a fashion course, I have become a lot more fashion conscious . I know that blouses are big in the fashion world at the moment so I decided to buy a few from various places. One of the blouses was this 'Lavender Maple Print Tie Detail Blouse' which was completely lovely and perfect for smarter occasions or casual wear.
The blouse cost me £6 reduced from £30 which made me determined to buy it as its such a bargain. £6 is Primark prices but with amazing quality! You could originally purchase the blouse in 8-16 but due to the fact it is in the sale, only limited sizes are available. ASOS are really good with delivering on time so I would highly recommend them as a company.
The blouse itself is quite thin which I expected due to it being a fashionable blouse and these are all thin at the moment. The more see through the better apparently. The sleeves are cropped and there is a strip down the front in lilac with a sort of pleated effect around the bottom. The blouse is cropped a little and the print is beautiful. I like that it isn't fitted to your body and floats loosely as it means I don't feel the need to suck in my stomach when wearing it. The neckline isn't very high but it is high enough not to expose too much. It does look gorgeous with jeans, leggings or high waisted shorts/jeans/skirt. Due to it being lilac it does go with a large range of clothing but I would recommend to stick to the usuals like black and white.
The item can be put in the washing machine and tumble dryer on washes up to 40degrees and it does need ironing afterwards due to the material. I have to admit it hasn't gone out of shape or bobbly yet which is really nice.
I would really recommend this at the current price but if it goes back up then I'm not sure I would of brought it. Lovely blouse suitable for all occasions.
I started work a few weeks ago, and with not having a job at the time of getting this job I only owned one set of smart "work" clothes. So as soon as I found out I got this office job I decided I needed some new clothes. I wanted something that looked smart but I didn't just want a plain white shirt. I looked to see what other people were wearing at work. I decided I wanted blouses and nice colourful shirts.
So I decided to go on Asos.com and I typed in the search bar at the top. "Blouse" and this was the first thing that came up. It was only £6 reduced from £30 and the had all the sizes available in stock. 8 - 16. The thing that made me want this was that it looked smart, but a bit casual as well. I needed something I was going to wear with black super skinny jeans. This shirt looked perfect. And the price was too good to not buy it.
So I added this to my basket with a few other items. The great thing about Asos.com is that you can get free delivery. Its meant to take up to 6 days. I like getting free delivery on clothes because I hate it when you just want to buy 1 item that's cheap but ends up not being so cheap after the £3.95 delivery charge. The day after I bought this top I had a second confirmation email to say that it had been dispatched. I was surprised because it said it would take about a week. I ordered it on the Friday and it came on the Tuesday. Only 2 working days.
When it first came I tried it on straight away. I noticed it was quite thin feeling but I didn't mind that because that means its quite cool feeling. When I tried it on I thought the fit was really good in the arms. It fitted really nicely. The were cropped sleeves. I doesn't fit tightly to your body though. It sort of shows you that in the picture. But I feel like its a maternity top or something. The colours are nice, there's a bit of everything. Purple/lilac, black, white and creams. I love the style of this shirt. Around the waste its like pleated.
The first time I wore it, it felt strange at first because it wasn't fitted to my body but after a while I got used to it. I really liked to neck line, it wasnt too high or too low. It was really comfy.
I washed this on a normal wash (30) and the colours did not run or fade. Its extremely creased since washing it so will need to be ironed. This item is made of 52% Cotton, 48% Viscose
I give this top 4 out of 5. I recommend this because its looks great and feels amazing.
