Review: Hot Pink Scala Pumps from ASOS

ASOS SCALA Court Shoe

I noticed these pumps a while back when I was trying to find a cheaper version of J.Crew’s Mona Suede Pumps in a similar Berry color. At $45.45 and free shipping, these ASOS Scala Pumps were a steal! I was pretty excited to get them.

My excitement waned when I looked at the shoes. Very poorly made. As you see in the inset picture above, one of the heels are not aligned with the base. Upon further examination, the shoes looked like they were made out of cardboard. It felt like cardboard too. At a heel height of 4″, I was afraid these shoes might not support my weight.

This shoe will be returned.

Style Me In: Asos Metallic Purple Body Conscious Dress

Metallic – what can I say? I’m obsessed with Metallics especially in Purple! But this is such a Girls Night Out dress which unfortunately I do not have time to hang out with my girls that often. I decided to showcase how my experimenting turned out.

This is the body hugging dress. I think it fits me really well without discomfort. However there is that tummy issue that no matter how much exercise and dieting I do, will not go away completely.

This is my favorite style. Very simple with a wild leopard cardigan. I could wear this to work – granted the length of this dress will make me really self conscious. I might have to tights to this outfit to really pull it off at work.

High Tea anyone? Or even a meeting at an upscale restaurant? I do believe that the ultimate lady like piece is the tweed jacket. I am enamored with this particular jacket. It’s cropped length easily layers on top of the cardigan. The different textures and lengths all combines into a pretty stylish outfit.

Without the cardigan, the tweed stands alone and can hold outfit together. I just think the outfit is too sparkly – the tweed has strands of glittered frays and the dress is metallic. This could be a Date Night outfit with my husband.

Dress: ASOS Metallic Body-Conscious Dress
Cardigan: J. Crew Leopard Print Cardigan
Jacket: Stylekelly Tweed Cropped Jacket
Shoes: ASOS SCALA Court Shoe

I really like that this dress could work in 4 different styles.

Poofy Dress Called Liquorish by ASOS

Dress: ASOS Liquorish Dress
Shoes: Naturalizer Bates Booties
Purse: ASOS Quilted Bag with Turn Closure

This dress was on my TO BUY list because it had 2 essential things I look for: Polka Dots and Pockets! I do like the vibe I get from the outfit. Totally young, carefree and edgy. However I have no use for this dress. I no longer party or go to parties where I need to look like this. I think with this outfit I’m finally letting go of my 20s. I have to start thinking about my 30s now.
