Tailored Shirt Dress (Asos, $89)

If I buy this dress (and I’m seriously considering it), I’m going to do two things.  1) I’m going to size up and have it altered because I’ll want the top snug and a little room in the skirt.  2) I’m going to have the fly (why it’s even there is beyond me) sewn down so that it doesn’t pucker.  

Look for Less

    can i advise against purchasing this? everything I have ever bought from ASOS is absolute crap

    That is a gorgeous color. But, like Katie said – what is going on with the models butt?

How to Survive the Blistering Heat
