This is probably one of my most favorite Crystal's Closet blog entries as it's proudly sponsored by Dorothy Perkins. Please repeat after me: DOROTHY PERKINS.
When Dorothy Perkins first contacted me in March to ask for collaboration, I couldn't believe my eyes, I had to read my email twice to make sure that I wasn't dreaming. And without any hesitation, I happily accepted the collaboration. You've probably seeing me "hinting" on Facebook or Twitter about there were some exciting fashion projects that I've been working on. Yes, this is one of them and I can now officially announce it to everyone :D. Sorry for taking sometimes to have this blog entry up due to my traveling, work schedule and the waiting time for the items to be delivered to me all the way from UK. Nevertheless, a blog entry is up with many beautiful photos for you to see.
I'm sure many of you are familiar with Dorothy Perkins as their stores are almost at every shopping malls in Singapore. But do you know how long has the brand been around? Ok, you are going to be surprised now.
Dorothy Perkins has been around for over 90 years and is now one of the biggest fashion retailers in the United Kingdom (UK), with nearly 600 UK stores and over 50 international outlets. Dorothy Perkins' ranges are updated weekly in store and daily online. The brand offers UK sizes 06 to 22, and a wide range of collections including Tall, Petite, Maternity, Lingerie, Shoes and Accessories.
and my job was to think of "How to wear striped prom skirt?". In short, I had to come up with the pairing idea for this skirt and this was what I got.
Classic, vintage and a bit of retro fashion with the short curly hair and red lips. I did the hairstyle myself to suit this outfit pairing.
I love the skirt material, so lightweight and comfortable with 100% cotton. It's perfect for Asian hot and humid weather.
Just for your information about size guide before making an order, I'm wearing size UK8 which is size S and it fits me perfectly. If you are not sure about the size, you can probably go to Dorothy Perkins store, try some of their items to get the right size for you and make an online purchase later. I did that actually as I was confused about size conversion between S, M, L vs 8, 10, 12. Better yet, if the size doesn't fit you, Dorothy Perkins allows Return Policy of your unworn item within 14 days of receiving your item.
