New At Dorothy Perkins

I need money, ASAP. I am pretty much torturing myself by writing a fashion blog since I can't afford any of the things I feature. I was browsing the Dorothy Perkins site, and (as always) found a ton of new things I'm dying for. I have been looking for the perfect sequined blazer for over a year now (and yes, I'm still obsessed with sequined leggings too).

1. Sequin Boyfriend Jacket
2. Color Block Dress
3. Black Crinkle Biker Jacket
4. Ruched Sleeve Tunic
5. Lime/Animal Print Tunic
6. Jade Body Con Mini
7. Blue Croc Purse
8. Bow Ankle Strap Flats
9. Purple Bodysuit

I did splurge on something recently though; I have been drooling over those amazing studded Chloe booties forever. You know, the ones everyone has wanted since they came on the scene last year. After reading The Musings of a Fatshionista and seeing that Free People is now selling some almost identical knockoffs for a thousand bucks less than the originals, there was no doubt in my mind I had to have them. I do not regret this decision at all (though I may regret writing about it, because my mom reads this blog and will kill me when she finds out...sorry mom!)

  15. Hey Gabi!

    I'm a first time visitor and I must say that I absolutely love this blog. Like many other YFF women I've been searching for a place to find fashionable clothes in my size, be it in a brick and mortar store or an online shop. I've explored the stores and collections you've listed and I was not disappointed. I'm even considering doing my work wear shopping for the season at a couple of the stores you've suggested, which brings me to my question. Could you or anyone else give some feedback on your online shopping experience with the online retailers on your blog. I am excited to begin shopping at these stores, but I do have some reservations about size issues when it comes to European clothing retailers. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    And..welcome back to the D!

  18. Warm dog clothing Abercrombie Polos is made in many different popular fabrics as well. You Abercrombie Polos can get sweaters which are made out of fleece, jackets ed hardy Hats made with micro fiber faux suede as well as knits and standard cotton blends. The Ed Hardy Sale best place to find all of these selections though is through the internet. When Ed Hardy Swimwear you go to the local pet store, if they have any selection at all, their Ed Hardy Swimwear prices can be expensive. The same also goes for specialty shops. However dog Ed Hardy Swimwear apparel on the internet are cheap and since they are even delivered to your front door, you get even more savings.
