Cocktail Dress Hour – ASOS Petite Contrast Cup Mesh Dress

Alexander Wang had a piece in his Pre-Fall 2009 collection that was an instant hit among Hollywood starlets. It seems like overnight the dress popped up everywhere, seen on Rhianna and Paris Hilton out and about, Demi Lovato on the red carpet, Diane Kruger in a magazine shoot, even made a brief appearance on Hawthorne with Jada Pinkett Smith refusing to wear it. The dress itself was incredible but at $795 I was ready to let it go. However, soon after the dress became famous, the likes of ASOS, Bebe, and other fast fashion houses made similar dresses, with ASOS’s version being the most similar.

I don’t usually succumb to trends like these but caved in because it’s exactly the sort of dress I would like to have in my closet.

So I bought it on ASOS in a petite size 8 (I would’ve gotten the size 6 but it was sold out), and it arrived within a week of my order, the material is definitely not the best but I think it looks better on than hanging on a hanger.

I believe there is a 10% code for ASOS right now. Use SWSAUGLDEL02 or SWSJU19INCOMPLETE or SWSJU19FAULTY for 10% off. The codes were shared by a tPF member.
