I mentioned yesterday that I had an excellent ASOS shopping day a few weeks ago and this dress was one of the items to come of it. I had been eyeing skater dresses with a bit of trepidition but bit the bullet and ordered 2 that day. This is the Knitted Dress with Back Zip.
I few things to know about this dress. First, it’s a very light-weight knit. VERY light-weight. In fact, slightly see-through, even in black. A 22 fit me just fine, in fact a bit loose, so I would say it runs big. But mostly, this thing built up static like it was trying to power my house. Literally, I took the pictures and went inside to start tossing my bedroom for a slip. (By the time I found it I didn’t have time to take another picture.) Out of 60 pictures this was the best I could do.
I’m not entirely happy with the way this looks. I swear the dress needs a crinoline or something, and as I mentioned, it runs big so it doesn;t come in much at my waist.
It also needs different shoes. I love those boots, but that wasn’t the right look. Ah well, we live and learn.
