I loooooove Asos! There is nothing as truly gratifying, or more of a crap shoot, than shopping for clothing or shoes online. The main reason online retailers exist, at least for people who are mobile and able to get to the shop, is chance.
Allow me to explain - when a woman is in the shop, actually trying on the clothes, she finds very quickly what fits and what doesn't. She is more often than not, disillusioned by the sheer volume of what doesn't fit -- this one too long in the arms, too small in the bust, too weirdly shaped in the bum, etc. She is also restricted by the amount of stock at the shop - does this come in my size? What about in green?
Shopping online offers the deliciousness of picking items one wants from the huge stockroom of a warehouse in Yokelville, which will then be lovingly vacuum packed and sent off to us in Village le Douche, where there is no Kurt Geiger concession at our local outlet.
Furthermore, shopping online offers the ability to feel like yes, the dress COULD look as good on my size 12 bum as it does on the model! Because it's not actually physically present and ill-fitting, we can buy even more merchandise, in the hopes that it MAY fit.
And Asos.com is online shopping gold. Offering the best and trendiest, the hippest and heppest of fashion, it's THE place to go for whatever trend you need to assure your credit card limits that you still love them.
Whethere you want the creme de la creme, like the above-mentioned Herr Geiger, or are looking for an on-trend bargain under a tenner, Asos.com is the place to go.
It stands, for the unfashionably aware, for As Seen On Screen, a terribly klunky and corny name that buyers the world over have kindly ignored, in exchange for £6 flats with tiny red birds that even a large, South African Harley biker compliment.
And the trade-off is a welcome relief to the drudgery of our lives. If your local shops don't have what you're looking for, and you desperately need a pair of tulip shorts for next week's inevitably rained out BBQ, head over to ASOS. they surely won't disappoint.
I do love spending money on Asos and spoiling myself with goodies, however, I find that the quality of the Asos brand is not always as I have imagined. One of the disappointments are the patent shoes which are made of plastic and makes squeaky noises when i walk. These cost a lot to deliver back to Asos! However, they always have the latest trends and items. They used to rely heavily on producing copycat outfits of celebrities but they have changed to focus more on selling some designer clothing as well. Also, look out for the newsletters as they sometimes have £10 off £100 promotions!
Love this online shop! Some of the clothes on it now are really expensive but i always look in the clearance section! Their returns policy is brilliant althoug you have to pay for delivery and for returns, Clothes are of a good standard and last a long time!
Asos pay the minimum wage £5.73 in their warehouse for their workers at Hemel Hempstead for 3 shifts including nights (still £5.73), disgusting eh, they should be ashamed of themselves.
Have been using this online store for a long time now and it has really become much more popular! I've noticed that with this rising popularity the prices have risen too though! They do a good range of clothes, very fashionable, and the site has good fashion tips too! They look gorgeous on the site however I would say that most of the items are of a disappointing quality when they arrive - they all look much better online but I guess that's the problem with online shopping! Their jewellery looks amazing on the site but in reality is terrible quality - I definitely wouldn't buy it again!! I like their new 'ASOS red' section - like TK Maxx in that it's designer clothes/shoes a lot cheaper than the original prices. Obviously this stuff is mostly great quality as it's designer and you can pick up some bargains! Their sales are good for bargain buys too but you've gotta be quick as the good stuff does go pretty quickly! I do resent paying £4 delivery when I'm buying one t-shirt but when it's £4 per order and you're buying lots it is good value! Overall, would say it's good for people who want a particular look but if it's ASOS own brand it might not last you too long!
