Fashion SOS for ASOS
This week Instant Goddess refuses to let evil forces get the upper shopping hand… at the time of going to press ASOS had temporarily suspended online trading due to a fire at its main distribution centre in Barnsley in the UK. Suspicions are that the fire was started on purpose. Who could do such a dastardly deed? Cutting the fashion bloodline that keeps an Instant Goddess going?!
But fret not the Instant Goddess has a couple of new online shopping destinations up her sleeve this week for that all important affordable fashion fix while ASOS gets up and running again.
Instant Goddess is loving the vintage inspired frocks at newly discovered ModCloth, a US-based online store that (whoop whoop!) ships to Hong Kong, and at affordable prices! They even have a dedicated section to plus sizes and a rather natty site to boot. You can get recommendations based on what’s in your “wish list” and if you fancy yourself as a fashion buyer you can become a virtual member of ModCloth’s buying team, voting on style samples to be sewn and sold by ModCloth. Plus if you love a style and it’s out of stock, ModCloth will see if they can re-stock based on community voting from customers, i.e. if it’s popular enough they’ll do their best to get it back online and into your shopping bags as fast as humanly possible! Now that’s what we call customer service… no cannot-la here.
What’s more, save 30% off certain summer styles now and if you need some retro poolside glamour, ModCloth also has a good swimwear section… so get clicking, Goddesses.

And we’re always on the lookout for jumpsuits that actually work, so the Instant Goddess is liking this “ready, set, sass jumpsuit” — with a name like that, you’ll definitely be primed for action!
Ready, set, sass jumpsuit $465
Mucho thanks goes to Accidental Tai Tai for the ModCloth fashion tip-off.
If you’re struggling to find lingerie or swimwear that fits properly, then you may want to check out another new discovery, Pour moi?. They’re an online retailer of lingerie and swimwear that stock cup sizes A to J and ship internationally. And most importantly, you can mix and match your swimwear tops and bottoms. After all, we are all unique and an Instant Goddess hates to conform to size. We think you’ll find that the Ahoy range channels just the right amount of poolside glamour for an Instant Goddess…
Ahoy range by Pour moi? prices start at approximately $211 for bikini bottoms.
Midweek Meal Inspiration
This week it’s No spaghetti spaghetti or as Women’s Health calls it the Gluten- Free ‘Pasta’ recipe that will blow your mind. So did it blow the Instant Goddess mind? Well, not quite, but it’s very tasty and super easy to make, plus low cal if you’re on wobble control this week. And if you really can’t forgo your pasta fix, then the quick and easy fresh pesto that makes up part of this recipe will become a simple but impressive favourite teamed up with your trusty pasta.
Until next time Goddesses and remember you are ALWAYS, ALWAYS worth it.
