We seem to be having an inadvertent “Dorothy Perkins” theme today, because right after publishing our “Three Things” post this morning, featuring three items from the UK high street brand, we remembered that Fashion Police Officer Francesca had written to nominate this Dorothy Perkins dress as a High Street Hero!
This dress was Francesca’s pick, so we’re going to leave it to her to tell you why she thinks it deserves the title of High Street Hero. Francesca writes:
“For £18, the quality is beautiful, the fabric feels full and heavy, but very summery. The skirt is nice and swishy, the length very becoming, and the petal sleeve is a nice delicate detail you don’t usually find in dresses in this price range. They had already done the same model in stripe, but this one looks much more elegant, is spot on the current black and white trend – not that that is important, but it’s a plus and it falls in as graceful a way on a busty size 18 as on a willowy 10. And the pattern is so stylish!”
Thanks for the tip, Francesca! And on that note, if anyone else would like to nominate their own High Street Hero, we’d love to hear from you: we’re particularly keen on hearing about items you’ve actually purchased and/or tried on, so we can get an “insider” opinion on things like fit and quality, as well as just a pretty piece of eye candy (not that we don’t welcome that, too): it’s always handy to hear from our officers on the front line about what they’re actually buying and wearing!
Send your High Street Hero nominations to amber[@]thefashionpolice.net (remove the square brackets first)- and don’t forget to tell us why you love the item you’re nominating for the award! Oh, and if you have a blog/Twitter account/whatever you’d like us to link back to, don’t forget to include that info too!
