I used to be really fond of shopping on Asos, to the detriment of my finances – although to the improvement of my wardrobe, which positively runneth over with items from the online superstore. In the past few months (years?), however, I’ve found that shopping on Asos requires a serious amount of time and patience, and I spend most of my surfing wishing there was an option to exclude bodycon. Seriously, everything is bodycon! Get it together, Asos, that sh*t is WHACK!

But obviously, I’m lying! Because not everything is bodycon, such as this gorgeous kimono sleeved dress, which will soon belong to me.

Then, because I don’t have enough gold jewellery (a friend looked at my wall, on which I have all of my necklaces hung, the other day, and said “how’s that Mr T impression going?” Hmmmm…), I bought these cute owls.

There’s nothing that pleases me more than kitsch animal jewellery, and that is a fact. But you know what pleases me almost as much? Florals!

This is a River Island skirt, but seems so much more special when bought in starlings. BOOM!

Then, because I don’t believe in doing things by halves, I bought that bag I posted about yesterday. (Genuinely, I can never just buy one thing online. It seems like such a waste of packaging!)

And lastly, because five is obviously a far better online shopping number than four, I rounded off my purchases with this vintage-style midi dress in some kind of 1950s shape that doesn’t look as if it’s going to do my boobs any favours. But nothing ventured, right?

I hope you appreciate the fact that I put links in this post, so that you can dress exactly like me! Hopefully we’ll bump into each other some day while we’re wearing the exact same duds, and we can pose for an Instagram snap.
