Fashion Review: ASOS LOST ballet flats

Long time no speak! Sorry for the lack of activity here on Pretty.Random.Things., I've been a little under the weather. But, I'm feeling much better and ready to start blogging away again.

Wearing the ASOS LOST ballet flats for the first time
I'm excited to start a new series of posts on the blog where I'll be reviewing some of my favorite fashion, beauty and random items. You likey?

ASOS LOST ballet flats (US$42.39)

I'm starting off with one of my favorite new purchases; the ASOS LOST Ballet Flats. If you're not familiar with, it's an awesome online shopping site that offers free shipping worldwide and has new items available almost every day. Their items range from very affordable to designer, so there really is something for everyone. USA

I've ordered from them quite a few times, and usually shipping will take about 8 to 10 business days to Taiwan. Which tells me that everywhere else in the world will be much faster. Also, it's easy to send stuff back if you're not happy.

I love browsing ASOS and will click "Save for Later" on items, which will then stay in your basket for 60 days. You can check back regularly to see if any of the items you saved are on sale. By the way, ASOS has sales very frequently and there's almost always a promotional code available for a discount. Google "ASOS promotional code" before checking out, and try to find a deal first.

Okay, enough babbling about the awesomeness that is ASOS. Let's get down to business. I was eyeing the ASOS LOST ballet flats for a few weeks, when one day I saw that it was on sale. I didn't even think twice before I purchased it. Because of the sale on shoes at that time, I got it for around US$35, which is a steal.

I wore these beauties for the first time yesterday, and love the look with a pair of rolled up skinny jeans. (You gotta show of the ballet straps!). I wore them out for about 5 hours and had a few blisters by the end of the day, but that's normal for a new pair of flats I think. I'm sure once they're "broken in", we won't have this problem. Plus, beauty is pain, as they say. 

These flats run true to size and fits very comfortably. As you can see in the picture, I wore them with a pair of skinny jeans, which is my favorite look. I haven't tried it on with shorts yet, but I'm sure they'll look cute with a pair of white, or denim, shorts. I adore the girly, feminine look of these and I'm sure I'll be getting a lot of wear out of them this season.

Chloé Square Toe ballerina flats (US$450)

My friend actually mentioned that they reminded her of the Chloé Square Toe ballerina flats that she has. I agree, although obviously the Chloé ones are way more expensive and are way better quality. 

ASOS LOST ballet flats in black (US$ 42.39)
The ASOS LOST ballet flats also come in black. They're nice, too, although I leaned toward the nude ones because I'd like to wear it in spring and summer. In general, I'll give these flats an 8 out of 10. Only because I don't like blisters. Who does!?

So that's it for my very first fashion review. Let me know if you'd like to see more of these types of posts. And, of course, tell me what you think about my latest purchase. USA
