ASOS Curve Placement Floral Print Dress

ASOS Curve are killing it at the moment. I could easily spend half my salary there every month. As I was browsing the sale the other day I put 10 dresses into the shopping basket before whittling them down to 2. Well, I do have to pay the bills.

When I saw this dress I instantly loved it, but was a little concerned due to the shape. As a definite pear, my bottom half is usually 2 sizes bigger than my top half; I bought the 22 and hoped for the best. When I tried it on it was just as I suspected, it fit on the bum, but the top half was baggy and it was particularly obvious at the back. Usually I'd send something like this back, but I loved the pattern so much that I decided to put a belt on and make it work. And...I think it does!

Yesterday we went for a stroll around town so I dressed for comfort and added leggings and boots, but I think this would look fantastic with tights and heels for a bit of a glam night out. 

If you are thinking about buying this dress (the last time I looked it was only available in a 26/28), you must remember that THERE IS NO STRETCH. None. Nada. Zilch. So do bear that in mind. 

On another note: how amazing is this weather at the moment? It's perfect for me; warm and sunny, but with a light breeze to cool you down (you'll be prying my black tights out of my cold, dead hands).
