Ohhhh the joy of buying new things! There was no way I could pass up the New Look sale or the Dorothy Perkins special offers, so I purchased some lovely things (mostly lovely anyway!)
Starting with New Look, I went shoe-mad! The sale is so cheap and cheerful.
loafers! They are so perfect for my odd feet... I have been looking for loafers for flippin' ages! These are wide fit and are a generous size so the 7 is great, don't pinch me at all (If you don't have square feet like me I'd recommend sizing down!) and they feel so right on my feet. I love the fringing and although i thought I'd hate the chain I really don't mind it on this colour at all.
On to Dorothy Perkins!
this Skirt (not in the sale) and am sad to say that the waistband is just too tight for me to wear comfortably. I'm sad because I love this skirt.... closet thing I've found to a Jibri style.
This dress is oddly generous for a Dorothy Perkins 22. I really like how it pulls in at the waist, but for me it's then too loose over my hips. If you have big hips or a big bum then seriously try this dress (maybe size down though!). For once it is a proper midi dress!
I was very happy to see this dress in the sale, because I loved my Asos version (navy and burgundy stripes) but I sold it after deciding that it was just too short on me. I wanted it to be at least knee length. this beauty is very similar but has black stripes instead of navy (which makes my leggings / tights options much easier at least!) and is a decent length midi. Again, this size 22 is really generous. It's stretch jersey, but it's really quite wide on the hips. I never understand DP, they cut their non-stretch clothing quite small but as soon as lycra is involved the cut is really generous.... I swear that's back to front!
Loving this dress. Keeping this one, and it matches my loafers down to the ground! They have sold out of this version but this is basically the same dress with a slightly different stripe. DP has loads on lovely bodycon dresses in the sale, all different lengths & styles so I recommend trying some out! All I need now are some decent tights to wear with it. Oh god... the search for decent black tights begins!
