It’s been a few years since I’ve bought from ASOS but I placed an order with them recently since they had a 20% code for Australia day and I absolutely loved one of the tee designs I saw! My plan this year was to stick with simple plain design items so they’re easy to mix and match but I guess that’s already fading away haha.

With the AUD dropping in value to the USD, I think ASOS is a good site to buy from since they constantly have sales and discount codes are readily available. They also usually have booths at Orientation events at universities at Sydney (I’ve seen them at USYD, UTS and UNSW) so drop by when you can coz they usually have freebies. Another option is to sign up to UNiDAYS, where you can always get 10% off full priced items and there’s load of other discounts available. I’m not sure whether it’s restricted to Australians only, all I remember is that you need a valid university email address.

I’m really happy with this order- the fit and quality isn’t too bad, especially considering the price. I got 3 items for $41.10 which I think is a bargain!

Will probably edit & take better photos later, sorry for the rush;;

Items

The items I got in this order were the:

This is the tee that led me to order from ASOS again! With my previous order everything was too big, even though I followed their size chart and I ended up disappointed, so this time I sized down. I think I’m usually a size AU6, I usually always buy tees in unisex sizes so I’m not too sure what I actually am haha. I actually ordered in this AU4 since they were sold out of size 6 and 8 so I thought I’ll just yolo and give it a try since it’s ment to be loose and boxy anyways. I was surprised to see that size 4 is still baggy on me, I thought it’ll be a bit tighter but I think it’s a pretty good fit for the way it’s meant to look. I think it also doesn’t look too cropped on me but then I have a short torso :3seal

I’m really pleased with the thickness of the tee as well, I tend to find that white tees are usually slightly sheer but this isn’t. Also it’s 100% cotton so it’s nice and comfy. Also really loving the graphic on the tee since I thought it’s cute and sweet :chuuu

The other tee I got is from a Swedish brand called Monki. It’s my first time hearing of them but browsing through their store it looks like they’ve got affordable basic and trendy items. It reminds me of American Apparel. I like the look and vibe of their outfits so I’ll be keeping an eye out on them :shinyred

I mainly just got this since I was looking for something cheap, simple yet interesting – and who can say no to unicorns? Their smallest size was XS (size 8), so it fits me loosely but not too baggy and I tucked it in the photo above of me wearing it. It’s more sheer and slightly thinner than ASOS tee I got and it’s made from 100% organic cotton. I think it’s a nice to wear tucked in or out.

And last up are these demin shorts! They’re made from a cotton blend (69% Cotton, 26% Polyester, 3% Viscose, 2% Nylon) and it’s pretty much true to colour (camera found it hard to pic up on the colours soon). I got them in size AU6 and they fit nearly perfectly – they’re looser around my hips and thighs compared to the model, but it’s just due to my body shape. They’re comfy and I love the colour and for less than $10 I can’t complain that much :XD

If you’re looking to update your wardrobe with quick buys I really suggest looking at ASOS! I think one of the hardest things with online shopping is figuring out what size best fits, especially if it’s your first time buying from the store and don’t want to hassle dealing with returns. A nice feature ASOS is that you can “view catwalk” on the page which gives you a look to see how it fits on the model and can maybe help you decide if you want to size up or down.

I really like supporting my favourite artists by purchasing their apparel so today I’ll be posting about Omocat! Nothing like showing your love through merchandise lol /cough fandoms/.

I first discovered her through Omori Boy and I’ve been a fan ever since. Her range of work covers fanart of games and anime/manga to her own character creations. I really like her style – she has that cute but gruesome style which I like lol, with vibrant and eye catching colours.

This is actually the second time I’ve bought from her from her estore, I own 2 other sweaters and an art print by her, but I got them last year when I wasn’t posting much :gloom

Order Info
  • 1st March – Placed for order
  • 8th March – Received shipping notice
  • 19th March – Package arrived

I paid via paypal and shipping cost me US$14.00. It was packaged like generic clothing orders? In that plastic bag thing lol.

Items

I ordered 2 items:

The SHOTABOY tee is from Omocat’s webcomic, Pretty Boy which is based the relationship two guys with seemingly different personalities.

I think this is the first green top that I’ve bought and I like simple graphic tees which is why I chose it. There’s also a pink t-shirt from the series but I’m not really fond of pink clothing since I don’t think it really suits with what I’ve got in my wardrobe lol.

I bought this in extra small and these are the measurements listed for it on the site:

Chest Sleeve Waist Length
16″ 13″ 15.75″ 26.5″

This is great to wear during the warmer temperatures and the material isn’t too thin. It’s also a 100% cotton American Apparel tee so it’s super comfy! I like wearing baggy unisex t-shirts so I thought the fit was fine.

The DEMONBOY Crewneck is a cute pastel sweater which I thought was perfect to adding some colour in my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. My currently clothing obsession is buying sweaters so I’ve been getting a whole range of different types. And who can say no to buying something with a cute face like that? :shinyred

I got this in small and the site describes it as being screen-printed on a 50% cotton 50% polyester crewneck sweater with these measurements:

Chest Sleeve Waist Length
20.25″ 29.5″ 19.5″ 25″

I wish they sold the sweaters in XS as I prefer my clothing not to be too baggy, but otherwise it’s really warm and comfy to wear. I think I kinda look like a blob if I wear thicker clothing too baggy haha. The weather in Sydney doesn’t get too cold, so it’s fine to wear with a collar shirt underneath.

One thing which surprised me though is the material which the design is printed on with. I think it’s paint while the other sweaters I got previously was just with ink (sorry I don’t know my materials LOL). I just thought it was interesting because of the different texture :eheh

In comparison with the FISHBOY Crewneck

I’m happy with my purchases and definitely will keep buying from her range of apparel if I’m a fan of her future designs. I’ve seen some people complain about the cost but I’m a person who doesn’t really care about the price if I find a design I like. I’ve bought from another designer who started his own clothing line and he prices his clothing slightly more (but it’s due to local production costs) so I don’t think it’s expensive :huuu

If you haven’t heard about Omocat before, please check out her blog, portfolio and store!

And feel free to post any links in the comments to artists you follow online. I’m always interested to look at people’s artworks.
