Seventies Chic

Blouse: Dorothy Perkins

Skirt: Thrifted from Savers

Belt: Glassons

Shoes: Chie Mihara

There’s something very seventies-chic about this outfit, I thought. Or maybe it’s just run-of-the-mill hipster-chic.

The blouse is a newbie from Dorothy Perkins, an impulse buy that I snapped up (full price, though typically it’s now half price, grrr) to “rationalise” the shipping cost to get a gorgeous peplum dress over to myself.

It’s part of one of DP’s brand lines “Atelier 61”, and it seems to fit a little narrower than DP’s usual line. I bought the 16, which would normally be fine in DP tops, but it pulls a little across the shoulders. Not enough to warrant sending it back, but enough that I know I wouldn’t have bought it if I’d tried it on in a bricks-and-mortar shop.

Still, I’ve been wearing the blouse, and the much-desired peplum dress still has its tags on, waiting for a warmer day to make it’s premiere.

Have I mentioned yet today how much I’m looking forward to spring?

  1. Its funny how we spend nearly every season longing for the next! At the moment with all the A/W12 lines in the shops I really want autumn to arrive so I can wear my snugglies!

    Loving this outfit and I cannot wait to see you in a peplum dress. I bet you’ll be a knockout!

  2. Gorgeous! The blouse looks great on you! I am very curious about the peplum dress on you. I would love to try such a dress, but I hesitate to order it from DP because of the shipping costs for the case it doesn’t fit. I would say we both have a very similar body shape, so seeing the dress on you would give me a very good impression how it could look at me. Can’t wait for warmer days in Australia 😉 (although that means it will be autumn here in Germany).

  3. This is a beautiful outfit! There’s something about it that doesn’t work 100% for me, though. I think it might be that the style of the skirt and the style of the belt doesn’t entirely match.
