Little Treats: Asos & eBay

It's been a while since I purchased anything from Asos, mainly because either my sizes were never in stock or free delivery is only when you spend £20.After completing my Remington Challenge back in December, they kindly sent me a £75 voucher, so I thought it would be great to purchase either some summer stuff or that bra I've been wanting for ages.

I wanted to start on the socks, because they didn't come from Asos, they are in fact purchased from eBay.Now I know some people are sketchy about eBay which I don't blame you, because I've had my own issues with them in the past when it comes to ordering items that don't have great quality or they don't turn up at all.Originally I was searching for some cable knit knee socks, but couldn't find any that I liked until I came across these.They arrived this morning and are so much better in person than what the description provided.These are very thick and cosy, keeping my legs and feet warm too.They cost me £1.95 with free delivery and were shipped 1st Class.Other colours are available too by this seller

Since I done my Superpeach post on undies, I started to go a bit crazy on lingerie, and I had been eyeing this bra for such a long time, but wasn't sure if I should get it or not.This bra has a caged design, and is made for those for fuller busts.My size can vary from each retailer, mostly between 32DD- 34E, and considering this bra was designed for fuller busts, I figured the 32DD size would give be enough room.Upon opening the packaging and looking at the cups, I knew straight away that it wasn't going to fit me.Looking at the cups, it looks like it would fit a 32b-32c.
This is probably the most un-flattering picture I have ever posted on the internet, but I wanted to show you how badly this bra sits on me.So normally when it comes to bra's, I don't mind that little bit of "bulge" when a bra is too tight and its not too noticeable, however with this bra its quite bad, especially when its bulging out on the sides.It was also quite uncomfortable having the straps across the front digging into me more, not helping with the overboob.Its a shame because this bra is actually very pretty and could be quite flattering, but the sizing is very off.Asos only have a few left in stock at the moment and its not 100% sure if they will be restocking it, so if your thinking of getting this bra, especially if your big busted, I'd recommend going up at least 1-2sizes.Purchase here

The last item that I purchased is normally something that I would avoid, considering how big my hair is and how it can easily break hair accessories.While browsing through the sales, I came across this beautiful headband that looked so pretty in all of the promo shots.My photo probably doesn't do it much justice compared to there images, but it is a very lovely piece that came in a Asos box that I was not expecting.The band is very stretchable and fits over my enormousness mane.(Item is currently out of stock)

Asos have a lot of lovely deals on at the moment, and have today added more lines to there sale.The delivery time has drastically improved too (was delivered by hermes) within two working days.I'd recommend having a look at there hair pieces because the quality is amazing and they have so many lovely designs they are selling out fast.More little treat posts coming soon :)
