ASOS Curve Review Part III

Mac - ASOS Curve Bow - New Look Scarf - Camden Bag - Next Shoes - Rocket Dog

Finally I can show you the last piece that ASOS Curve sent me! The weather has been too bad here to take pics, it's been dark, grey & rainy since I got back from Wales. This piece is the Lace Up Back Mac, which is now on sale for £33! I chose the navy, because I am not the greatest fan of khaki. This coat is very similar to the blush coloured one I own, also by ASOS. I think this one is perfect for the autumn/winter months though, because of it's darker colour.

One of the things I really love about this coat is the tapering from front to back, as you can see in this picture. This coat is a smidge tight for me, but I do have a pretty large bust, so I would say it is true to size.

The back is the part I don't like quite as much. I am not a fan of corset details, & I much preferred the smaller one on my other coat. But normally I would have my hair covering most of it, so I don't mind too much. I do however love the pleats. So yes, nice coat/mac, perfect thickness for autumn, or mild winter weather. Quality = great. As I said, the only thing about this coat that could have been nicer is the corset back, but that is just a personal preference.

Underneath my lovely coat, I wore the organza dress I showed you a few weeks ago, also sent me to by ASOS, with a cute jumper I got from Dorothy Perkins layered on top. Word of warning about the jumper though, it looks cream here, & in the stock photo, but in real life it is more of an oatmeal. Also, it has started pilling after only it's first wash, which is a real shame, but not surprising as it is quite loosely knit. However because of the loose knit, it is rather generous in size, & thus fits me:)

  1. Gorgeous mac, I'm in desperate need of a new one so I mite head to Asos for a browse now.
    If You don't like the corset at the back maybe you could try taking the string out and replacing it with a ribbon??

  2. I love that first jacket on you! It is perfect but I am partial to pleats and corset details. It looks just like this Marc Jacobs coat that I have. Too bad the main range version hasn't gone on sale yet, but I plan to bookmark the page and get it when it gets discounted. Thanks for the review!

  8. I love the coat - it fits you perfectly! Can you adjust the corset? That might help with the bust. I normally don't like corset details other - but this is definitely classy.

  11. Nice coat, I have the Evans purple bow back one which is similar in design but no corset lacing, also it isn't tapered. I reviewed it here:

    I like the waistband on this coat and how it really adds shape. It looks really good on you.
    I love corset lacing - but only on corsets! So I know what you mean about the lacing on this coat it's not really necessary on such a nicely cut coat.

  12. Yeah, I like the mac, but I liked the blush colored one better too. Your sweater is great! Too bad about the quality:(

  14. I love the sweater and dress combo! Totally inspired to pick up both items now, haha. I agree with you about the corset though, I'm not a big fan, but the shape it gives is lovely.
