ASOS Wishlist I

7 June 2015


I once had an obsession with ASOS. I also used to call it A-S-O-S.

Embarrassing admissions aside, I think most would admit that ASOS is a pretty ideal destination if you're in the mood for some retail therapy sans human contact, or if you just love having 25 tabs open on Chrome.

For an ASOS Anonymous member like myself, I'm proud to say that I can't remember the last time I made a purchase. But, in the spirit of hampering good progress, I've put together a wishlist of things I clearly (don't) need to buy.

I have a not-so-well-documented love of Chelsea boots. They're the perfect unisex, all-rounder shoe. They're sturdy, comfortable, easy to slip on, wet-weather appropriate, and easy to style. This pair by Monki have a cool textured effect, but ASOS have plenty more kinds available.

I also love watches with leather straps, so I was surprised by how much I like the look of this metal rose gold number from Oasis. I like the simple watch face and how the strap is the same width the whole way 'round, which can be hard to find in metal watches. Being metal, it gives you the slightly more masculine look without too much chunkiness (although lesbihonest, there isn't an ounce of masculinity in rose gold).

I've seen quite a few bucket bags around lately, but none as pretty as this powder blue leather duffle from the ASOS own label. The shade of blue, the pebbled leather; even the perilously thin-looking strap... I can't see this bag being the durable kind, but it's just so pretty(!?!!????).

I wonder what corn farmers or scarecrows think of denim overalls being such a fashion statement right now. The vintage blue wash on these Daisy Street dungarees keeps them from looking too farm-like though (they actually look pretty cute on the model). I'm doubtful these would suit my 5'1'' stature, but if you like the dungarees look, I reckon these would be a nice pair to look into.

I love browsing through the ASOS beauty section and seeing all the Bourjois bits that are yet to be released into the Australian market. The Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laques have been getting quite a bit of attention recently. They're touted as being a lightweight, glossy lip colour that feel like water on the lips, and although I'm a matte lip lover through and through, I am very intrigued by these.

Would any of these picks make it onto your wishlist?
