Every once in a while, I go online and find too many things I want to buy. I add them to wishlists, check back daily for sales, and stare at my bank account like I can will the digits to grow up to six figures with just the power of my mind.
Alas, I haven't seem to won the lottery or learned the power of mind control just yet, so for now everything will stay nicely hidden away under my favourite items and carts until they sell out or I pull the trigger and just treat myself.
Needless to say, I spent too many hours on ASOS last night, combing their new releases for things I just have to have. I've compiled them all in this nice list so you can all actively
encourage discourage me from investing in some new fall pieces.
ASOS Oversized Black Check Scarf (x) - My friend and coworker, Rachel, is a major babe who always looks so effortlessly cool and chic. Recently she told me that she had splurged on a fabulous tartan scarf here on ASOS, so during some midnight online window shopping, I took a peak for myself. The site is stocked with oversized, chunky scarves for the fall and winter which is exactly what I am looking for as we get into the colder months. My style inspiration for the season is 'Things That Can Double As Blankets.'
ASOS Halloween Lip Clutch Bag (x) - How fun is this clutch bag? Lip clutch bags have been all the rage over the spring and summer, but I am super into this Halloween inspired one. The fangs give it an added touch that take a trendy piece to that special place. Where that place is, I don't know, but I'm sure it's rad.
ASOS Cat Shift Dress (x) - When browsing any clothing store, I always punch in two search terms almost immediately: cat and bat. The cat is because I am obsessed with cat printed clothing items and probably will be for the rest of my life, or until I get an animal companion of my own (my mother is allergic, making life most difficult). How could I not actively covet this super cute cat print dress? The cats are made of sequins! Sequins + cats = my dream dress.
ASOS Limited Edition Flower Spike Headband (x) - I've recently taken on a second job and this one requires wearing a uniform. I had no idea just how difficult it is to look cute within the confines of a dress code as it's been years since I really had to adhere to one. Back when I was in high school, I wore a school uniform and my signature piece to jazz that sucker up was always hair accessories. I'm taking a page from 16 year old me and am on the hunt for simple and pretty hair accessories to make my work uniform a little more fun!
ASOS Mesh Tutu (x) - I have a pink tutu skirt I purchased off of eBay for a cool $10, but I'm always on the hunt for a fuller, bigger, and even better version. This one seems to make the cut. Now if only it were being sold at an eBay price...
ASOS Halloween Jumper With Bat Patch (x) - As mentioned above, I always search for bat when browsing anywhere. This is because of my penchant for Batman and my never ending search for the perfect Batgirl t-shirt. I am obsessed with this sweater as it combines two of my favourite things: grey sweaters (I currently own 18 and think I need at least 18 more) and bats. Three favourite things, if you include elbow patches.
ASOS Knitted Skater Dress with Lace Collar (x) - With the holidays coming up, I'm starting to take note of cute potential holiday dresses. This one in the pretty red colour and it's adorable lace collar definitely fits the bill! I can see myself sipping eggnog and mingling with tall, dark, and handsome under the mistletoe.
I'm just kidding. I don't drink eggnog or leaving my house.
ASOS Sleak Large Face Watch (x) - I've wanted a sleaker black watch for a while and often admire a similar Kate Spade version. Since I'm trying to save for a trip to Europe this coming summer, the Kate Spade love of my life is currently out of the question, but this snazzy one will more than suffice!
ASOS Sweatshirt with Powerpuff Girls print (x) - Powerpuff Girls was one of my absolute favourite things to watch as a kid. I'm a Bubbles at heart, through and through, but I admire Blossom's sense of style. That signature bow? Iconic.
