Dorothy Perkins Haul #1

Thursday, April 03, 2014
At the beginning of the month I won a massive Dorothy Perkins competition on Pinterest - I couldn't believe that I won, I was a ringing everyone to tell them (they just said 'let me guess you won another competition). I am very good at winning competitions recently! I won a £250 Dorothy Perkins voucher and I have only spent £100 of it so far, I can't believe how restrained I have been (go me!). I am giving some of the voucher to my sister but there will be another couple of posts on what I buy with the rest of my voucher. Here are my first four buys - 1 dress, 2 tops and 1 pair of sunglasses. 
Outfit one - Dorothy Perkins Petite Stripe Tunic (£24, reduced to £10): This item is still in stock online, I bought it because I do not have anything like it in my wardrobe. It has a shift dress shape so it doesn't have a waistband as all of my other dresses have, it feels slouchy and I LOVE it! I also love the stripes - if you couldn't tell as all of the items in this post are stripy. The faux leather pockets and trim make it look quiet expensive in my opinion. Not everyone likes it though, my sister says it looks like pyjamas! It is made of a thick cotton like material, so comfy. My tights are from *Oroblu and my wedges are from Select (Yoox). 

Outfit two - Blue Stripe Jersey Knit Top (£16): This is not in the sale but I had to get it, I adore breton stripe tops, I think they look so french and chic! The top is quite thin and light so it would be great for spring/summer. I paired it with my Asos Petite Black Jeans, Asos Ankle Boots and my new Dorothy Perkins Tort Hawaii Clarkmaster Sunglasses (£8) which I also bought with my voucher. I am a bit unsure if these sunglasses suit me but I like them! Please excuse how massive my hips look in this photo!

Outfit three - Petite Stripe Jersey Knit (£18): This top was also not in the sale and it is almost sold out online, as I am writing this. I love stripes, I think I have an addiction...I love the grey/white marled kind of effect and it is a super soft jumper. It is fairly light and breathable so it would be great for spring. I paired it with my Dorothy Perkins Petite Jeans and my La Redoute Boots. 

What do you think of my outfits and new buys? Have you bought anything from Dorothy Perkins recently?
