My latest ASOS buys...

So yes, I can't quit window shopping online and have succumbed to buying a couple of items from ASOS recently. To be fair however, I really needed these items cause most of my clothes don't fit me no more...

1. Knitted Striped Dress; 2. Wrap Dress
I just passed the halfway mark and I can't button my work pants and skirt any more. I bought myself the Belly Belt a few weeks ago but I feel so self-conscious walking around with my zip undone! So I thought now would be a good time to invest in some maternity dresses. You can imagine my excitement when I discovered that ASOS does maternity, woot woot!

I was ecstatic when the dresses finally arrived but unfortunately, it was short-lived. The Knitted Striped Dress turned out alright but I was really disappointed with the Wrap Dress. Firstly, the fit was not right at the bust area. There was just too much material there and it made me look really top heavy. Secondly, and the most disappointing part was that the draping at the side of the dress made me look HUGE (and I'm a size UK8)! It just did not flatter the bump at all... I mean, I know we're supposed to show off our bump 'loud n proud' but the dress made me look like I should have popped a month ago.

Oh well... Looks like my online window shopping will go on... Will update when I find nice maternity stuffs...
