My previous order from ASOS has not arrived yet (just as I was starting to become really impressed by ASOS’s delivery system – prior to this order I was getting purchases placed merely 5-7 days before delivery) but it’s due to arrive this week so I’ll post pictures as soon as I can.
Use USFLASH at checkout for 20% off full priced merchandise today only. Unfortunately, unlike the previous 20% off code, this only works on full priced items.
I ended up ordering again – and reordered this top at half off which was full price only two weeks ago. I also spotted some new arrivals that I just had to try for myself. Even though the code doesn’t apply for sale items, I noticed a lot of new markdowns so I personally found it worth my time to browse the sale section too.

I was most excited about the Nishe Lace Bodysuit With Jewel Embellished Collar and can already see it being a favorite. I also ordered the ASOS Ruffle Placket Blouse in two colors – harvest gold and nude pink – because I have been loving silk-like (these are 100% polyester though) longer blouses for the fall. A few other sale items that made the cut were ASOS Drape Cowl Back Dress with Strap Detail (reminiscent of the cowl back shift dress that I kept from a previous order), ASOS PETITE Exclusive Pleat Front Shorts, ASOS Button Pocket Mini Skirt, ASOS Twist Sleeve Pleat Front Top, ASOS Cropped Pussy Bow Blouse, and the re-ordered ASOS Chiffon Sleeveless Pussy Bow Blouse.
Lastly, a few tips for browsing ASOS since their selection can be overwhelming.
The US site does not allow you to sort by size which can be devastating when you get all worked up about something beautiful only to realize that it sold out in your size. However, if you switch over to the UK site, the sort by size filter magically appears.
I love the sort by size feature for ASOS because so many cute things, especially once they get marked down, sell out in the smallest sizes. This feature saves me time from sifting through thousands of items that do not apply to me.
I also like to search using key words since there are a lot of styles that don’t appeal to me. Some petite friendly terms include “tailored”, “slim”, and “cropped.” I also search for things like “lace”, “scallop”, “pussybow” because those are things I can’t get enough of.
