ASOS Floral Smock

Occasionally on this blog I have compiled wishlists and collages of items that I covet. However, I have swiftly come to the conclusion that this is a Bad Thing. Why? Well... I have very little self control when it comes to shopping. If I decide I want something then I just must have it. I must! This is how I came to own this dress here. I put it in this wishlist post then could not get it out of my head. It simmered there, taunting me with it's beautiful unusual print and oversized comfortable slouchiness. The insouciant beguiling fiend!


For a while, ASOS was on my bank balance's side. The dress remained stubbornly out of stock for the longest time, until one day recently, suddenly it wasn't. It was back in stock! I immediately snapped it up and waited breathlessly for it to arrive. As soon as I put it on I knew I had made the right decision in ordering it for the second time (yes the second time, more of that in a sec). I wasn't going to let it slip out of my hands again. So I kept it. And I love it *sighs blissfully*.

The Biggest Dress in the World (actually a size XS o_0)

So yeah. I HAD actually ordered this dress a few months ago, for the first time. Despite loving it back then, I was unsure as to the sheer extent of the oversized tent-like shape. Did it make me look pregnant?? My boyfriend confirmed that indeed it did. Pah. So I reluctantly sent it back. However, I've since realised that I just don't care about looking pregnant (I'm not) and I won't let that stop me from wearing this delight of comfortable dressing. This lead me to putting it in the wishlist, then ultimately reordering it and keeping it. So, Biggest Dress in the World, I fully embrace you. Or I would if my arms could fit around you.

Before you go, take a look at the outfit in motion. Not least to see my cat's bemused reaction.

  1. Your cats face is hilarious! haha, what a cutie.
    This dress is beautiful, and so perfect for this weather. The same thing happens to me whenever I make wishlist posts, I always end up with at least half of the items because I have 0 self control xx

    1. Haha, no worries! I'm usually a UK 8 or 10, depending on how many pies I've been eating recently.

  9. I ordered a smock dress off Asos and it was the most beautiful dress ever! Sending it back though for a smaller size, I think its a good idea to downsize with smocks. They are ultimate comfort dressing though!!

    1. Definitely the comfiest things around, and I agree it's better to size down. ASOS especially have the hugest smocks!
