They could but just mention it in your email. But they usually give a 10% off code so I think it's better to use the code Jinadaze provided.

I have been desperately looking for these ASOS cat eye readers:http://us.asos.com/ASOS-ASOS-Cat-Eye...XNzZXMvUHJvZC8

Unfortunately, they were sold out before I could get to them. I would be happy to buy them of someone (via ebay or smth like that). If they draw on some design--I have been looking at the Dior Zeli and some Miu Miu styles, but they are not quite the same...--I would welcome that info. Thanks!

ASOS & Fashion Plagiarism
Please tell me if I'm being unreasonable:

ASOS Faux Fur Leopard Hooded Coat With Ears

This looks like ASOS is trying to copy Spirithoods' essense but fails miserably. Fashion is not about the obvious, it's about fantasies and this is just flat-out costume-like.

ASOS Lace Skater Dress

And this, to me, is a copy from Free People's widely popular and sought-after Floral Lace Fit and Flare Dress. I know there are slight differences, but still, I'm suspicious.

What do you guys think?

I'm just not a fan of ASOS's lace. The dress does look cute on the site but from experience I'm sure it looks horribly cheap in real life.

^^I was tempted to buy the fur coat but it´s too expensive right now (and I´ll have to wait like 6 months to wear it cause it´s spring in my country) but as you can see from my avi, I like costumy outfits LOL
Asos also have this hooded scarf that´s more "wearable"



Today it felt like Christmas cause I received three packages that I´ve been waiting

patent leather brogues and pink skinny pants (the color is not as shocking as I was hoping for...)



and this blouse (a gift for Mother´s Day for my mother in law, I could be borrowing it in the future...)

Yeah, the lace dress is 100% polyester. Ew.

AND HOW IS THAT HOODED SCARF NOT A COPY OF SPIRITHOOD?!

Just sayin'.

^Aspecting Asos to be original is a lost cause.

asos stands for as seen on screen, so they started the company making more affordable versions of clothing seen on celebs, key trends etc so I am not surprised at all!

i have the original version of free people's fit & flare lace dress (from last winter) and i don't think the asos one looks similar at all really? no more so than any other long sleeve lace dress anyway.. but yeah pretty much all of the asos brand stuff is "inspired" by stuff from other stores anyway :p

This is kinda weird, has anyone ever had the same problem?
I ordered these in size UK 8. The pink one fits perfectly, the stripped one is a bit bigger (like I should´ve ordered a size 6). Both are ASOS Skinny Capri Jeans
