Electric Blues and Shopping News

20 December 2011

I wanted to share a few bluey outfits that I’ve been wearing recently and match them up to a few sales happening around the internet.

Electric Blues and Shopping News

ASOS just started their mega sale at the moment – up to 50% off items! Click here for ASOS Australia, ASOS Asia and ASOS Rest of the World.

Isn’t this dress so PRETTY?! Glittery, glamorous, short, simple but high impact! I love the two tone blue zigzag. It’s a great skirt length for me too.

Speaking about skirt lengths. Here’s a funny story.

After my post last week, where I featured 6 dresses from Birdsnest Online, I received several comments/emails from my readers, along the lines of – “Dear Karen, you look great in the dresses, but I wonder what they would look like on NORMAL SHORT PEOPLE LIKE ME??”

It’s hilarious, because I am reeeeeeally short! I’m 160cm tall. That’s 5’2”. I can buy clothes from the KIDS section. I’m so short that when I stand next to some of my friends, I am looking at their belly buttons.

Maybe I just look tall in my photos? Maybe the way I angle my camera makes me look taller on screen?

I do cheat a little, because I tend to sew up the hems of my skirts, dresses, pants and jeans, so they fit my height and look better on me.

But with this sparkly ASOS dress, I didn’t do any sewing. Nor would I even attempt it, given all the sequins.

The blue suede heels are also from ASOS.

I’m so in love with this top. It’s a gradient knit top from YesStyle, which is just so deliciously slouchy and easy to wear.

The tank by Rick Owens, shorts from Zara, shoes from Ecco, bag from FashionJunkee.

YesStyle is having a beauty sale, with up to 40% off items. You can pick up items from SK-II, Shu Uemura, Shiseido, and more (I think these brands are 15% off though). Also there are heaps of other fashion items that are up to 60% off.
