Outfit Of The Day : Lace & Mesh

Due to the lovely comments from my last OOTD post wearing my ASOS dress (you know who you are!), I’m back with another outfit of the day post wearing another dress (I bought 3!) from ASOS.  This is the ASOS lace and mesh dress $34.01.

Obviously, the dress looks ten times hotter on the ASOS model.  I really liked the straps which dropped to the side of my shoulder.  I paired it with nude patent heels from Rubi Shoes which I bought last week for $15 and a red lipstick from Australis.  Looking at the photos, I have realised that I need to wear more accessories…

Anyway, the back of the dress reveals a large cutout section.  Très risqué for moi as I am usually a conservative (read : frumpy) dresser, IMO.  The Husband says it is uber-sexy.  Unfortunately, it means that I cannot wear a bra with this dress…hence I have flatter-than-usual boobs…and I definitely have to wear nipple plasters; just in case it gets cold outside 😛

I posed for these photos inside the house because even though there was sun outside, it was bloody freezing!  Turns out the best light is in one of our bathrooms so that’s why I am posing with bathroom tiles and a towel rack in the last photo – LOL.  Kudos to fashion bloggers who pose regularly outside for their blogs come rain or shine.  I’ll stick with beauty blogging in my PJs 🙂

So what do you think of this dress?  Is it something you would wear?  And do you want to see the 3rd ASOS dress I bought?

Outfit Of The Day : Winter Blues

It’s been too long since my last Outfit Of The Day post!  But that’s because I can’t pose for peanuts!  And getting my Husband to take a nice, flattering photo of me is almost impossible.  But I am determined to show you the new additions to my wardrobe.

I went ASOS crazy a couple of weeks ago and bought 3 dresses.  That is a BIG deal for me because it’s my first time buying clothes online (this ASOS swimsuit does not count!)  Anyway, this ASOS Blue Knitted Dress with Scoop Neck $29.75 was my favourite and the best-fitting out of the 3 dresses.

It’s perfect for Winter and I love this bright-ish shade of blue.  On the top, it is quite roomy so it can hide my food baby belly, but as it leads onto a fitted skirt, it isn’t frumpy.  It also comes in black and pink and I am tempted to buy them too.

As we are in the colder seasons of the year, it’s time to bring out my boots.  I love my boots.  I have way too many pairs of boots.  Do you love boots too?

I’m definitely not a fashionista, but what do you think of my outfit?  Do you live in boots during winter too?  And should I do more OOTD posts?

ASOS Body Con With Mesh Insert Swimsuit

A couple of months ago, I went on ASOS website to browse their sale items and I stumbled upon this sexy body con with mesh insert swimsuit

  • High leg halter neck low back design

Hello?  The model looks so damn sexy wearing it.  Anyway, I posted this up on my Facebook and I got this reply from my cousin.  She said (and I quote), “R u being serious?!  That’s really tacky!” – and just because she said that, I went ahead and bought it!!!

Now there’s a problem, you see.  And that is – I CAN’T SWIM!  I hate the water and I have tried but failed miserably at learning to swim.  So why do I need a swimsuit??

Anyway, it was sunny today so I decided to do a bit of camwhoring in the swimsuit.  I love the cut-outs in the swimsuit and the halterneck style.  But I dislike that there is no padding in the boobs area – what if I wore it on a cold day…?  Need I say more?  Nipples alert!  There, I said it!

Note : no nipples are shown in the photos below.

So I totally disagree with my cousin. I don’t think I look tacky. Instead, the words – beached whale, flat chest, big belly and cellulite come to mind! LOL!

Girls, are you a swimsuit or bikini gal?  Guys, do you like girls wearing swimsuits or bikinis?
