ASOS vs Motel: Rant of the Prices

Hello world,

I like ASOS. I’m starting to buy of them even more than I used to, and I love the speediness of the deliveries, the prices are usually quite good and their own collections are pretty amazing. So I was on a quest this week to find an absolutely gorgeous white jumpsuit from Motel that I spotted on a fellow blogger and just had to own.

ASOS had the item in stock, though before I went and bought it, I checked the Motel website to see if they had any other stockists where I could try it on in person. I was surprised to see that not only did they still have the same white jumpsuit on their website, but that it was a whole £20 cheaper!

Now I wouldn’t be surprised if ASOS did hike up the prices just a little; they have to buy the merchandise from the original retailer and they are a business so they have to think of making a profit, but £20 seems a bit much of a price hike. That’s nearly double the price of the original item.

So shame on you ASOS for that fail. Not impressed at all!

Sorry, just had to rant about that one. Gonna make a complaint to customer service while I’m at it, because that just seems a bit excessive in my opinion.

Until then,




Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
