Fashion Friday: Dorothy Perkins for Fall











Several months ago I discovered a great online shop called Dorothy Perkins. They offer a wide range of fashion-everything from skinny jeans, dresses for the office, structured handbags to ballet flats and more. They are the perfect place to find great fashion for awesome prices. Most of the items I come across are under $50. Sadly, many of the pieces I planned to share with you are currently out of stock-that is how popular they are! I didn't want to get you all excited about a great find only to discover that it's not available. 

Above are some of my favorite picks for fall. You've probably already figured out that I love animal prints, especially crocodile, snakeskin and leopard print, as you could see in our very first Fashion Friday post last week. They're a great way to add some texture to an outfit, I love the one above with the tassel details that we're seeing on both bags and shoes. Another way is by incorporating bits of lace as seen in the dress and handbag above. This fall is much more exciting than past seasons because we have so much available to us-it would almost seem that anything goes! While the colors above are more dark and subdued, bright pops of color are in this year and I'll be sharing some fun examples of it in upcoming posts. 

A great coat is a must-have for fall and since it's something you'll be wearing often (depending on where you live), introducing a new style or color it's a nice way to freshen your wardrobe-I love the burgundy/bordeaux tones for fall and instead of black, gray or camel, why not try something new? Handbags are another investment piece for the season. I usually invest in one pricier quality handbag that has a more classic shape and isn't overly trendy for the season and then add some lesser expensive but fun stylish varieties-a new clutch, structured handbag and crossbody bag are some essentials this fall.



Flirty, feminine details that are still modest exist through peplum tops, silky blouses, ruffle details, sequin and of course lace. While menswear has had an influence on women's wear this season, remember that classy women always look ladylike no matter what the current trend is, so add your own twist such as a great belt to define the waist of a dress or coat or an elegant cap-toed pair of heels (it's so very pretty woman!)

The very last dress #13 was just reduced from $89 to just $39!! They currently have every size available and it's such a great dress for several body types as it's not too form fitting. Their most popular items sell out quickly, so don't delay if you see something here you like. If you sign up for their newsletter, they will give you 15% off of your purchase not to mention free shipping if you spend $75 or more. 

*In case you're wondering...let me take a moment to say that I'm not compensated by Dorothy Perkins in any way for sharing these fashion finds or mentioning their company, they simply offer great items on a budget that I personally like and wanted to share with you all in case you hadn't heard of them. :)

What are your favorites here? What styles are you loving most this season?

    1. I'm a bit polka dot obsessed, I've always loved them but now there are just so many more fun options. The combination of peplum & polka dots is just so feminine and fun. :)

    1. Hi Unknown, I'm so glad you enjoyed the post. :) I'm really loving peplum pieces too! I've worn their tops & dresses and I would have to say that they are pretty true to size. I haven't ordered anything that has wound up not fitting. Although I haven't had to return anything yet, they are known for having an excellent return/exchange policy just in case. ;)

  11. Trumpet skirt is best.. :) I wish to buy that for my wife as she always seeks for latest designer clothes.. For menswear, I usually rely on Monteil Brands, but for my wife I have to search a lot along with her.. :p
