I had one of those odd half days at work today, they always feel so strange of course starting work later means working until much later too. To stop my brain from processing the latter, I decided to fill today's waiting to go to work gap by visiting Dorothy Perkins.
Dot has always been my most beloved highstreet store, I feel though it is obviously mainstream big gun fashion outlet, that Dorothy Perkins fails to receive much fashion credentials. Their collections are hardly ever hyped up like other fashion biggies that exist, for Dorothy Perkins is far too modest. I can't recall how many marvelous pieces I've spotted in their store and on their online shop, the pixel floral skirt is one piece that can easily be mistaken and confused with Basso&Brooke. I remain utterly shocked at the lack of fashion coverage in regards to Dorothy Perkins Balmain-esque crystal (only difference being Dots are fake) embellished boyfriend blazer...if only some high profile 'so right now' celeb had sported it, huh? I feel my appreciation for Dot is isolated,very few people I know were even aware of half the items I'm rambling on about now in this post. 'You got to tell me where did you find that skirt, H&M right?' assumes my friend, 'no its from Dorothy Perkins (insert actually just for added smugness) actually'
'oh really Dorothy Perkins,I never bother with that place'.
So yes filling in the time waiting gaps I made my trip down to Dots and boy how Dot never fails to disappoint a fashion sale deprived girl. There were sale rails galore seducing me with their mouth watering discounts with red spot sale stickers dotted just about every where. I being the over organized, always with a note book and list sort of person. Had compiled a list of Dorothy Perkins items I craved weeks back yet were out of my fashion budget. The aim: hunt these same items down in the super sale.
I did it, I did it! Yup I succeeded in seeking the bold Basso&Brooke style floral skirt (£5) and the other skirt I was desperate for back in June.
Trouble with purchasing skirts I always feel compelled to also purchase leggings and tights, sob my neon pink tights have worn out time to replace. Only I didn't discover any funky tights in Primark ( a legging and tight life saver, well when Primark has its good days that is!)not this time round anyway. Though I did achieve to top up my legging collection, high five for that!
