this is one of my favorite sweaters I recently got from ASOS :) if you haven't seen it enough all ready!


If you guys don't know about ASOS yet, I am sorry for introducing you to your newest addiction. It is a clothing store based in the United Kingdom, and I have been in love with them for about two years now.

I love their massive selection, and I feel like their options are less cookie cutter then other places. I also love how they have so many modest options which can be hard for us Mormon girls! Did I mention they have free shipping, from England? Yeah, anyways, enough of how amazing they are and on to how dumb I was the other day...

I was browsing like I normally do, I love to virtually window shop, and I noticed that a lot of pieces were super cheap! I got really excited and just started adding item after item into my online cart. I remember thinking "No way is that dress $20.00, done! No way that is only $15.00, getting it right now!" I should have known it was too good to be true because when I went to check out I noticed something... a foreign little symbol...  £

Yup, that is right. A GBP. As in NOT American. So, while holding my breath I went to see exactly how much everything would convert to. I have spent some time in England and Scotland, so I knew it would be more then what I was thinking/hoping for. I clicked the button to USD, and my stomach dropped. Gosh Dang it, talk about the biggest let down ever!

So no new amazing clothes from ASOS. Not until the United Kingdom decides that the GBP will some how magically represent USD. Or until I realize that I live in America.

All I can say is... major fail alycia, major fail.



39 little notes:

  1. hahaha oh no!! Well I am sure you will have new clothes soon enough.

  2. Ha ha! This is cracking me up! I have always wondered how exactly how you pronounce ASOS? Hm... They have super cute maternity clothes too. Sometimes looking though them makes me want to get pregnant. And I could never get sick of seeing that sweater!

  4. ASOS got me through my pregnancy! AND they have the best ever tights.. nobody has better ones. That sweater is so cute.. I'd surely live in it.

    And now that you reminded me.. I think I'll head on over to ASOS for a little browsing.

  9. You can go to ASOS' site for the US and you will see all the prices in USD and there will be no surprises.

  13. Why can't the whole world go on something similar to the Euro (because that worked out so well...)? It would make international shopping so much easier.

  15. Worst letdown EVER! I am going to have to check them out, though-definitely always looking for modest options!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ha! I did the same thing when I was in Italy. I thought that I would buy myself a nice purse and found one in my price limit (or it would have been my price limit if the euro magically became usd). I was more than shocked when I got back home and looked at my credit card bill which had the correct USD price listed. oops

  18. this happens to me all the time when i'm 'window' shopping on dorothy perkins! too bad the exchange rate is so high, because ASOS has an incredible selection! for instance, that FAB sweater you're wearing.
