Now with the snow condition in Europe, it probably takes longer. I am still waiting for a package sent 1 week ago...

Got these 2 and I love them! Leather jacket is better structured than the famous Zara one while the top is very soft.

I'm thinking about buying this coat, but I'm afraid maybe the fur isn't soft or the coat doesn't feel nice, or anything like it.

The last article of faux-fur clothing i owned from asos shed like crazy, had to send it back. By rule of thumb, if the fur looks rough/coarse/cheap in the detail photos, it probably is and will shed terribly. My friends have had luck with soft, smooth and fluffy faux fur from asos before, but usually at a higher price point.. It takes some close examination of the guide photos/runway videos (watching the movement of the fibres helps) to properly judge the texture.

I just ordered ASOS Fine Torque Necklace with the 25 % code - HAPPYJAN. It expires soon though, so hurry up!

Thanks for talking about your experience. The coat's price just went down, it's very inexpensive, but in the end, I think you are right and the fur will probably look cheap in real life.

Any experience with unreceived orders? It's been over a month...

I have! I contacted them and they asked me to "wait x more days". I did, and I still didn't receive my order, so I contacted them again. They usually offer either a refund or a new shipment, if they have the pieces in stock.

I received my order today. Super disappointed with some of the products. The oversized denim jacket is lovely, I'm already wearing it The watch necklace doesn't work of course, but I don't know what else I was expecting for 10€. The ballet flats are lovely, but will need some breaking in.
But the dresses... I ordered a cream lace skater dress, and it has this terrible half sized tulle underlayer, that makes it look overly poofy. And it's scandalously short (and I love short skirts!) I don't know what I'll do with it. The other was a navy shift dress with 3/4 length sleeves and I can already tell I'll have to iron it all the time. Plus the quality isn't amazing.
Really rethinking if I should get my spring wardrobe from there, like I've been planning.

Oh, I do have to save the shipping was really quick, though. I think they deliver with DPD now, at least my package...

Send them a message. They'll either send the item again or give you a refund right away. I once even got both, although that wasn't my intention at all. I asked about a missing item from a gift set and not only did they send the whole set again, I also got a refund for the other one (and got to keep the other items included!). Their costumer service really is one of the best; at least in my experience.

While most ASOS brand clothing isn't great, I wouldn't dismiss ASOS altogether because they carry brands with way better quality clothing

^You really are right! I find that ASOS jackets are really nice quality (I have a few), while the dresses are usually not up to my standards.
Which brands from there have you had luck with in the past?

I have two pairs of ASOS trousers and they're pretty decent, too; I too find their dresses aren't so good, nor their shirts, which is a pity because they have a lot of cute ones... just they're so cheaply made!
I mostly use ASOS to buy bras on sale, as I often find killer deals, but some brands I've had luck with (and which have their own websites - I often compare prices and availability between both) are:
- Vero Moda
- Darling
- Oasis
- Warehouse (I've only ordered one item and sent it back because it didn't quite fit, but it was good quality)
- French Connection (usually more expensive)

I also want to try A Wear, as they have really pretty pieces, but they always sell out quickly in my size

^Thanks for the great advice! A friend of mine got their Bonjour jumper and it was SUCH bad quality. It shed, was paper thin and itched! Terrible.
Such a shame because their dresses and blouses really are so pretty... Btw, I've bought and A Wear dress from them before and it was lovely. Really thick material, but I would say if you're between sizes, go a size up - mine was a bit constricting in the underarm area.
