What Laura Bought in Dorothy Perkins

Thursday, 2 May 2013

I mentioned in Sunday's post about Saturday's Cardiff blogger meet that after our numbers had dwindled, we went shopping. I was sent a gift card to use in any store owned by the high street giant Arcadia and after vetoing Topshop for being a bit too trendy to trawl through in my tired and aching state, I headed to Dorothy Perkins. I ended up picking this bag as it's the perfect size for carting my life around in while also being beautiful in it's nude shade with it's scalloped trim. The floral headband was an instant purchase because as soon as I saw it I fell in love. I've been wearing it with everything and as boyfriend put it "You look like a biker bridesmaid". The final purchase was one on a whim. I had been holding a chunkier beaded necklace and ended up deciding £16 was just too much to put down on a necklace that wouldn't be worn with everything until I saw this at £10 in the half price sale. All the girls loved it and so it is now adorning everything from low cut black jumpers to sheer shirts.

I really wanted a new dress but Dorothy Perkins seemed to be lacking in-store of things that I loved. I'll be putting the remaining balance on the card to the cream lace dress featured on yesterday's wishlist.

  5. I've been wanting that bag for soooo long! I have a nude obsession at the moment! I also feel the need to buy a floral crown since I started blogging, but I'm afraid I will look ridiculous sporting flowers on my head in the middle of Autumn! xx
