My mum and aunt were with me so I was very excited to hear what they had to say about my ordered items.
Let's jump straight in to the photo's (all prices are BEFORE the 25% has been taken off)
Navy and White Stripy Tunic - £25
This is a FABULOUS dress if you are not 5ft 9! I was gutted because it felt amazing on .. just too short :-(
I have seen that they do this in their tall range so I am quickly off to order, but before I do what do you think about the seams not matching in stripe? It bothered my mother so much (I'd not even noticed).
ME: oh no, it's too short
Aunty Jeanne: oh yes far too short
Mum: Shame it's too short
VERDICT: Too short, returning for the tall range if I can get over the mis-match of stripe pattern on the seam!
Black Jumpsuit - £22
I really wanted to love this BUT it had a very saggy crotch that I kept trying to hoike up and then that pushed the waistband up and then down as I tried to make it look good again and then we're back to the saggy crotch problem. I didn't feel at all comfortable in this even though I LOVE the wide neck.
ME: Nah, I feel like I'm wearing my pjyamas's
Aunty Jeanne: Oh yes, that is gorgeous
Mum: Not sure
I couldn't even get it on! It's a size 10 which I thought I was so this dress runs SUPER SMALL. It has no buttons or zips and it's a tight fabric (good for holding in and structure) but impossible to get on! I tried 3 times but each time had to be helped out with it STUCK over my head and shoulders! I think I may re-order in a 12 because the colour and design is epically (made up word) gorgeous.
Me: How annoying
Aunty Jeanne: Are you sure there's not a zip
Mum: Yes I'll help you out of it
VERDICT: Returning and thinking about reordering in a 12 (this hurts, not because it's a size 12 per se but who on earth likes ordering the next dress size up?)
Peach High Heels - £25 - OOS
ME: Ooh I love them but they are too hard, no give and don't fit my feet properly, same for the peach, the ballet shoes and whilst I loved the red shoes they don't love me, they're too rounded on the toe, I don't like the look of them on me.
Aunty Jeanne: That's what you get when you buy cheap shoes. The red shoes look very old fashioned
Mum: Lovely colour but agree they don't fit properly. I don't like the red heels, very fuddy duddy. The peach ones look tacky.
Verdict: SADLY RETURN (sad because I need some cobalt blue shoes but they just didn't fit right)
Do you see the gaping toe gap? Maybe it's my strange feet??!
Here is how shoes can make an outfit. As I was prancing around the bedroom I put on boyfriend jeans rolled up and a simple black tshirt and then the heels - I love this outfit and am so desperate for Spring to spring so I can wear this more often.
Let me know if you have ordered anything from Dorothy Perkins in the past week, if so what?
