Friday Spree

Happy Friday! The countdown is on...one week until the big day! It seems the busier I get, the more my shopping addiction kicks in...what can I say - it's all in the name of blogging and fashion! Plus it's a stress buster!! I mentioned ordering online yesterday and there are two shops I've been eyeing for a very long time...

The first one is UK retailer ASOS. They offer smart and chic looks plus extended sizing in their ASOS Curve line. I've read great things about their clothes from other bloggers plus they offer FREE worldwide shipping! I spotted this lovely chiffon midi skirt in the clearance section and decided to go for it. I think it will work well for winter with black accents and tights and boots.

My other coveted site is Modcloth. They've been introducing a sprinkling of larger sizes but they were always hard to find until they introduced a new 'search by size' feature that makes it SO easy to see what's available. I love Mocloth because of their unique prints and so I chose these two lovelies to try. Can't wait to get them!

Online shopping is always a risk with sizing and fabrics but one of my fave things is to read the Reader Reviews - real life accounts by others who've bought the items. They offer a great perspective on fit, fabric feel, quality and more. Modcloth has a fab reader review section!

I'll be sure to keep you posted on how they turn out...

Have you had any experiences with either shop? Do tell!


  1. what?!?
    you ordered from modcloth?
    i've been wanting to order there for a LONG time but i just can't handle the shipping prices.
    have they come down in price to ship to manitoba?
    last time i looked, probably 6 months ago, it was atrocious!

  2. THANK YOU fort his post and for introducing me to Asos Curve! It's hard to find really fashion forward trends to fit by body type sometimes. I enjoy your blog!

    xoxo, Jenna


  3. Thanks Jenna! So glad you found something you like - your wallet may not thank me though :)

    Yes Stephanie, I took the plunge and made an order! The shipping is pretty average - I paid $17 on a $200 order plus the small percentage of customs fees. So there is some charges but I was willing to invest on some unique pieces.


  4. i've shopped plenty with asos, and i've had mixed results. the clothing can be kind of cheapy, but they do ship free & pretty quickly, and when things work, they're great and you really can't beat the price. let me know how your modcloth order works out, i've never ordered from them before and i'm curious!


Thanks so much for stopping by, I love reading all your comments! If you have a specific question, please email me at lhume1@mts.net. XO Lenore
