Fashion: George at Asda and Monsoon

Hello everyone! Today I am bringing to you a long awaited fashion post! I haven't done a clothing post in a while and I have missed doing them! Now I know what you're thinking... George at Asda and a Monsoon dress? They are at two opposite ends of a price spectrum. I totally believe that you can get great clothes at both affordable and expensive prices! So I thought I would share the two dresses I recently picked up!

Dress - George at Asda
George at Asda - Dress - £10

The first dress I picked up is this grey floral dress from George at Asda. I picked it up for £10. I was looking for a more lightweight dress that I could wear during summer and this is perfect. I can also team it with a tank top underneath to make it a bit more modest.

If you have read some of my past clothing hauls you will know that I am a sucker for both floral patterns and skater style dresses. This dress was luckily a combination of the two.

The back also attracted me to the dress. The draped noted back is a lovely little touch and is really comfortable and cool for during the summer.

Dress - Monsoon
Monsoon - Dress - £39

The net dress I picked up was this lovely detailed patterned dress from Monsoon for £39. I loved the bright colours that accent the pattern on the dress. The dress itself is also lightweight and a bit baggy which will make it perfect for work.

I'm in love with the pattern! It is absolutely gorgeous and I love the bright purple that runs throughout the pattern. It really catches your eye to the dress! The background colour to the pattern is a deep navy blue.

Of course the biggest difference in the two dresses is the price tag. The George at Asda dress is £10 whereas the Monsoon dress I picked up was £39. As much as I love picking up affordable clothes I also love picking up more expensive clothes on occasion. Who doesn't love the occasional pricey treat!?

Where are your favourite places to pick up clothes? What is your favourite clothing brand? Which of these two dresses do you like? Let me know in the comments!

  2. I'd never really thought of buying clothes from Asda before! Love the print on both of those dresses and the Asda one is such a bargain but I gotta say the Monsoon one wins, it has an especially gorgeous print!

    1. They are! I think they now realize the convenience of getting the food and clothes shopping out of the way at once!
