I love how they have regular listings alongside boutiques, much like eBay has 'professional' shops and regular listings. This means you get a real mix of prices and items that you couldn't really get from simply boutiques alone, and all at the touch of your fingers! Not only that, but it is a great place to take inspiration from, as the styling of most of the shots is amazing. If these are amateurs, then the professionals better watch their step!
I thought I'd pick out a few pieces I've spotted on ASOS Marketplace, but I can assure you I can't have even touched the tip of the iceberg in this treasure trove!
|1. Polka Dot Blouse £16 That Gingham Deer , 2. Cream Vintage Jumper £17 CatherinerBooty, 3. Vintage Lilac Lace Collar Jumper £15 Derby Vintage|
I'm a sucker for ugly/cute jumpers, so this cream one is just perfect! The blouse from That Gingham Deer is the multitasking tool of the season; polka dots, semi-sheer, blouse/tunic/mini dress. And who could resist the cutest lace collar against pastel lilac
|1. 60s babydoll dress £65 Wolf and Gypsy Vintage, 2. 50s blue daisy tea dress £35 Batoko, 3. 60s Mini dress £32 That Vintage Shop|
Mixing textures, ditsy floral prints and mod inspired mini dresses. What more could a girl ask for? The 60's baby doll dress is the perfect transitional dress: easy to style up or down for any occasion. Also, love the styling in all three! Secretly lusting after the whole outfit by Batoko....
|1. Suede and Leather ankle boots £40 HoyBoutique, 2. Suede Buckle Boots, £45 HoyBoutique, 3.Red Suede Pumps £12.99 Hobbs|
I couldn't resist these two lovely boots from HoyBoutique. I own a pair very similar to the brown suede and leather pair, and wear them on a constant rotation with my Topshop chelsea boots! I've been after a pair of red heeled pumps for a while now, and these would be the answer. Think slipper shoes with a heel....
|1. Turquoise heart and gold plated bracelet £10 Black Tied, 2. Gold Collar tips £6 PerfectPoppy, 3.Vintage large Peter Pan Collar £12 5678Vintage|
Well, the quantity and quality of accessories on ASOS Marketplace is amazing! I love the Black Tied boutique, and it was hard to narrow it down to a single item, as they are all gorgeous.. But this stood out to me as simple yet eye-catching, and in one of my favourite colours too. I urge you to go look at the store and not fall in love... Collar tips are an inexpensive way to update a tired shirt. Add to a denim shirt for the cowboy look! Detachable Peter Pan collars act in the same way, a cheap update over any outfit. This one is over sized with a lovely cut-out detail, an edgier take on the collar trend.
So, there we have it! My, by no mean comprehensive, exploration into ASOS Marketplace. It really is like one big vintage/handmade/boutique in one place. If I could pick only one thing from my little find? Well, that'd be too hard! But, if I had to pick just one, it'd be the turquoise heart bracelet from Black Tied (or anything from them for that matter!). A close second would definitely be the suede buckle boots from HoyBoutique. Only question is, could I squeeze my feet into a size 6....
