A few weeks ago I received a goodly-sized order from Dorothy Perkins, and unusually I haven’t had to send half of it back as unwearable. There’s a kind of “meh” cardigan in a frighteningly saccharine pink, but it’s OK. And then there’s this:
Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Shoes: Diana Ferrari
It was quite cheap, so it’d probably cost me as much to send it back as it cost in the first place, but it’s a bit… nighty-ish, isn’t it?
I thought I might have a go at re-mixing it, so I thought I’d put the options out there and see what my readers thought.
As ever, keep in mind these are just jury-rigged versions that I’ve whipped up using bits and bobs from around the house. I can use different colours or positioning – just let me know your suggestions in the comments.
Option 1: Tied Up
An appliqued bow, probably in red, draping from the shoulder down past the waist
Option 2: Great Lengths
an added bit of hem – in white or navy
Option 3: Lucy Locket Lost her Pocket
heart shaped pockets low on the hips
Option 4: Night-Night
Heaven’s sake! what’s with this remix malarkey? Just wear it as a Nighty already!
