7 // wish i were wearing + ASOS giveaway


I ordered this pretty little white dress from ASOS last week and I cannot wait for it to come in the mail. Being officially-officially summer now, all I want to wear are little white dresses and flower crowns. Is that too much to ask? I'm also obsessed with this tiny bag. I've been taking walks with my co-workers in the evenings and this would be the perfect place to store comfortably store my keys and phone, without having to drag around 5 shades of lipstick, my business cards, and enough bobby pins for a stable of My Little Ponies. Summer just calls for tiny versions of regular-sized things, doesn't it? (It does.)

If I could only shop one place for the rest of time, I would have no problem giving my money over to ASOS for the rest of eternity. The UK retailer covers a wide range of styles and sizes (their Curve section is arguably the best of its kind), as well as a significant range in price point. Whenever I'm searching for something specific, I click over to ASOS first because 9.9 times out of 10, they have it. In fact, they probably have at least a couple of variations on it too, so I'm not tied down to one thing. I'm a girl who loves choices, okay?

The brand of this dress is actually Vero Moda, a brand I discovered because of ASOS. Another favorite thing about them is that, while their in-house brand is fantastic, they carry a lot of different brands I probably wouldn't encounter otherwise. I could spend (let's face it, I do spend) hours just scrolling through their dress section because they list new items all the time and I'm constantly falling in love with 90% of their inventory. I don't know about you, but I'm a pretty picky shopper, so it's awesome to have to narrow down what I want from lots of great options instead of work extra hard to find something I can live with.

Because I love the store--and you!--so much, I'm giving away a $25 ASOS gift card to one lucky writes like a girl reader! The giveaway will run through Wednesday July 3 at midnight, and I'll be announcing the winner on Thursday July 4th.

To enter, you must:
> follow writes like a girl on either Bloglovin' or Facebook
> leave a comment below sharing which dress(es) from ASOS you'd use the $25 toward
> leave your email address so I can contact you if you win!

So excited for my first real giveaway--and so excited for the lucky one of you who gets $25 to spend at ASOS! Get to commenting, dears!

  2. That's an adorable white dress! I haven't been brave enough to buy anything white (except my white capris) because my paleness makes my skin glow, and people often give me a hard time about it. I love my pale skin, though! So maybe it's time I start shopping around for white dresses too! I would buy this amazing maxi dress.



  3. Your wish I were wearing outfits you put together are always perfect. I've been wanting to wear a flower crown soooo badly, but where the heck would I wear it?? Luckily we're taking a trip to Disney in September, and the bestie and I decided to wear rompers and flower cowns one day because let's face it, Disney is the only place you can wear pretty much anything and not worry about your age ;)
    Yay for a giveaway! I've never shopped ASOS before, but now that you're making me choose a dress that I would buy if I won, I'm seeing a lot of dresses that I want! I'm kinda loving the v-neck sweatshirt dress though!

  4. Ooooh, I am so lovin the "ASOS Skater Dress with Fold Detail in Texture." The skater dress trend is a cute one. Looks suuuper comfy and flattering. Aaaand if anyone could get away with wearing little white dresses and flower crowns 7 days out of the week, it'd be you giiirl. :D


  5. i got really attached to a bunch of dresses lol. i settled on three:




    sylvia.renee.tyler@gmail.com :)

  6. I love ASOS so much! I would probably use it to get a floral dress. There are so many to choose from! I've never ordered from them before so this would be a great opportunity! Plus, they're having an amazing sale right now! Fingers crossed!

  7. That bracelet is gorgeous. I'd totally want to use the giftcard on that beauty, but since we're talking about dresses, someone needs to invite me to a wedding ASAP. This dress is to die for!

  8. I also love the Vero Moda line! I fell in love with their maxi dresses!

  9. I love that ASOS carries one of my favorite British brands: Closet! Their dresses are both feminine and professionally appropriate, so they're double perfect. I'd get this guy: http://us.asos.com/Closet-Shift-Dress-in-Polka-With-Contrast-Border/13i865/?iid=4231500&SearchQuery=closet&Rf-300=1944&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=-1&sort=-1&clr=Polkanavyborder&mporgp=L0Nsb3NldC9DbG9zZXQtU2hpZnQtRHJlc3MtaW4tUG9sa2EtV2l0aC1Db250cmFzdC1Cb3JkZXIvUHJvZC8. if I won, so I really hope I do!
