ASOS Curve Hooded Parka

July 28, 2010

I have a feeling I will be living in this coat, I love it so much. Way back when, I posted it as a Want of the Week but at £55 it was out of my budget. At £16 in the ASOS Sale though, I had to snap it up!

I sized up but I could have got away with my usual size, if it weren't for the length of the sleeves. My gorilla arms aside, I love the fit! It's well made and a decent length with a huge hood and giant pockets! The drawstring waist means you can play with the fit too. The ASOS sale has been far too tempting, who else snapped up a bargain?

Here's an OOTD from yesterday, these shoes are seriously ridiculous, they make me about 6'7! I adore them though and haven't taken them off since thy arrived!

Coat: ASOS Curve
Shirt: New Look Inspire
Black Top: ASOS Curve
Leggings: Ethel Austin
Skirt: H&M
Wedges: New Look
Hairband: ASOS
Sunglasses: H&M

Thank you to those of you who commented on my hair post, they made my week! :) Sadly, my hair isn't that length naturally. Clearly I need a weave ;D

  13. It looks great!

    I only got the cage top from the ASOS sales but I haven't been so good in the makeup sale. lol

  14. you look awesome!! I missed your OOTDs!

  15. I bought that parka too! Been looking for one everywhere in my size, and thought the ASOS one fit the bill, especially when it dropped to £16.
    The fits pretty great and I'm only 5'2.
    Not too pleased with the quality though...especially the inside neck of the hood...would have sent it back if I bought it for £55.
    The fabric was also creased like crazy....can imagine the time I am going to spend ironing it after washes!

  16. I love it :)

    would love for you to check out my blog :)

  18. pure style is all I have to say xD

    It looks so great on you and (I guess b/c of the adjustable waist) it makes you look slimmer x) Second picture reminds me of Lady Gaga, somehow...=)
