A few days ago I noticed these jeans called Authentic Straight Leg in Oxford wash on the ASOS website, and I thought I gave them a try. They looked good on the model and cost just £30 which is a pretty good deal I think. ASOS has free delivery above £20 and free return anyway, but also it was a good excuse to try one of their top with flared sleeves, which I’d had my eyes for a while. Furthermore, was on discount so it cost me only £12. Not bad, right?
Yeah, it maybe sounds really good, but as the saying goes: all that glitters is not gold. Or I could’ve used the other one about buying cheaply but actually most of the times ASOS has nice things at affordable price, so I won’t say that one. 🙂
But lets see what was my issue with these things, which otherwise look nice on the photos.
White top with flared sleeves: You can see the top here what actually fitted me pretty well. Moreover, I liked the color, the neckline and the sleeves too, but the material was just horrendous. The site said before that it contained viscose which most of the times doesn’t mean any issue, but this time it was really poor. I hated it against my skin. 🙁
Authentic straight leg jeans in Oxford wash: the jeans weren’t so bad either except for the really tight button holes which is annoying but at least fixable. The bigger problem was the hip area which was quite tight on my butt. And I didn’t like the color in person either. Also, but it’s really a minor problem – as I got used to it – that the waist was quite big and the back part of it didn’t fit well.
So I returned both of them, but actually I’m not disappointed at all. I’ve learned not to feel sorry for something what I don’t like from the bottom of my heart. Also ASOS is really good with refunding as I got my money back within a week.
Maybe next time will be better. Oh, and if you’re interested, these jeans now available in Petite size, aka with shorter length and with fringed hem too, which look really nice (on the picture at least), the smaller sizes are already gone though.
That’s all for now, see you later!
