Review: ASOS PETITE Swing Dress in Baroque Print

I recently added the first ASOS item to my wardrobe.  I'm still on my black and white kick, so I chose this dress from the ASOS PETITE Collection because it looked versatile and I could easily see it fitting in with my existing wardrobe items.  So to really test out the dress, I did what I mentally do every time I add something new to my wardrobe: I remixed it.  Here is the ASOS PETITE Swing Dress in Baroque Print styled three ways:

Pops of Orange

Blazer: H&M/Necklace: Claire's/Clutch: ???/Shoes: ShoeMint  

Shades of Gray

Earrings: H&M/Clutch: The Career Wardrobe (Philly)/
Shoes: c/o Burlington Coat Factory (purchased with gift card)/Tights: Target 

Dash of Denim

Denim Dash
Earrings: Old/Denim Vest: Forever 21/Clutch: Francesca's Collections/
Boots: It's Vintage Darling (DC)

Size: I ordered a size 6 in the dress because I didn't want it to have a clingy fit.
Price: $47.47
Material: 96% Vicose, 4% Elastane
Likes: The crisp black and white graphic print.  The dress is comfortable and the length works for my short, curvy frame so I can easily style it for a variety of occasions.
Dislikes: I don't have any dislikes other than the sleeves being a tad too long.
Verdict: I like the dress and definitely plan to get a lot of wear out of it for the remainder of the season.  I've already worn this dress to a cultural event and to the office.  Next time, I may add a scarf or layer the dress over a skirt for a different look.  My order also came pretty quickly.  The ASOS PETITE Collection has an array of stylish items for petite ladies that fit my price point and style aesthetic. 

Note: I was given an ASOS store credit to order an ASOS item and chose this dress.  As always, all opinions in this review are my own.

that print is so gorgeous - and I'm definitely digging black and white prints lately!
love that they have a good petite section (always a challenge!)
