Love Affair With ASOS

November 5, 2010

There’s nothing better than stumbling on a new site that is plain A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Well, with the luck of an Internet search I found my new love: I’m not sure if you’ve heard of it before; I wish I knew about it earlier. Basically, you’ll find everything here: fabulous jewelery, winter wear, cold weather accessories, and everything you need for your cosmetics case. ASOS is ahead of the trends, since it is a UK based site. But luckily, shipping to us in the States is free; where else do you find that? And another plus is that you can return packages for free as well.

The site is simple to navigate; there is no confusion like there is on other sites. The site is divided into 5 main categories: Women, Men, Designer, Beauty, and Outlet (a blessing 🙂 ). There is an impressive range of prices; from designer exclusives that can run you a few hundred dollars for a brand-named sweater to forty dollar jeans that you could snag from the outlet. You feel as if you are in a real department store; along the lines of Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman’s. Except, you don’t have to spend thousands for a Chanel or Gucci look.

Here are some of the brands that you will find:

  • American Apparel
  • Ben Sherman
  • Betseyville
  • Christian Audigier
  • C & C California
  • Disel
  • French Connection
  • Roberto Cavalli
  • Sophie Kokosalaki
  • UGG

This is maybe 1/16th of all the brands! Trust me if you can’t find anything you like here;  you must be an extremely finicky person.  You won’t ever be bored with the site either as it adds approximately 1500 new lines each week; quite an impressive number. Some of the designers that ASOS is collaborating with are:

Rike Feurstein

Wool Supersized Scarf in Violet $617.19 from ASOS

Louise Amstrub

Stripe Drape Dress in Black/Gray $258.60 at ASOS

Poltock & Walsh

Angled Contrast Sleeve Playsuit $206.88 at ASOS

When browsing the website, I also found some excellent Men’s clothes; I would say that their site has a bountiful assortment of clothes/shoes/accessories for men. I know it’s too early to be thinking about Holiday gifts, but here are your best bets (if you want to get ahead of the game).

ASOS Leather-Look Flying Jacket in Brown $112.06

Cobra & Bellamy Leather Strap Watch $256.88

Prada Linea Rossa Metal Detail Aviator Sunglasses $327.56

Did I mention that ASOS also has the top makeup brands from A-Z? That’s right everything from Bourjois to Urban Decay. My favorite goody:

Paul & Joe Sparkles Collection Cat Lipstick in Claire de Lune $27.58

I’ve never seen anything cuter! Two of my favorite things in one: cats and lipstick 🙂

Do you have enough reasons to log-on to ASOS? If not, send me a message and we’ll discuss! Thank you Britain for bringing your genius to the States!
