OOTD: that Primark red dress

Dress: Primark @ ASOS £13
Jacket: Topshop £52
Boots (similar): Kurt Geiger sale £40
Necklace: Topshop £7.50
Socks: Topshop £3.50

I was recently a runner up in a My SuperMarket Competition for the What's In My Handbag they were running (here) and I won a £25 ASOS voucher. I don't normally shop at ASOS unless its in the Christmas sales as there's never anything that takes my fancy that I couldn't buy on the high street at a cheaper price.
I decided to have a look anyway, thinking that if I couldn't find any clothes then I could always buy some beauty products.
I'd heard that Primark clothes were now stocked on ASOS and as I had shopping in Primark in Liverpool due to it always being busy and stressful, I thought I'd check out the section online.
I had seen some instagram pictures of bloggers who had purchased it, and they all said to get it one size bigger - but at this point I had already ordered it.
I'm usually a size 6 so I stuck with my normal size and got that. When I came I was really scared that it wouldn't fit but trying it on I'm so glad that it does.
I would advise to get one size bigger if you have boobs (mine are only little so this isn't a huge issue for me) I can imagine that it would be quite tight around the chest area as sometimes when I move around a lot i can feel some restriction, but other than that it fits me fine. 

The colour is so bright and vibrant, and is great for summer, or paired with tights in winter. I love that it's a skater style dress too as it means it can be dressed up or down depending upon the situation you're wearing it in. 
I wore this to an event I went to a few days ago and it was well received which is always nice.
I do feel a little like Zooey Deschanel in this dress (not complaining though)
