Review: Dorothy Perkins Dresses from House of Fraser

Ever since I discovered leggings a few years ago I have had a bit of a style of my own. I wear leggings, boots and tunic tops or dresses pretty much all the time – unless I’m having a jeans day. I feel both comfortable and feminine in leggings and dresses but hadn’t bought any new dresses for quite a while when I found some I loved at House of Fraser.

I love how department stores let you shop from your favourite brands under one roof and my two new dresses are both from Dorothy Perkins – although through House of Fraser. I love Dorothy Perkins quality – and price – and I know that anything I buy from there will be long lasting, hard wearing and it usually fits me perfectly too – one of my favourite shops by far.

As I’m only 5ft 3 most dresses are quite long on me, which I prefer and the skater style dresses have a cut that works well with my body shape. The lace trim dress is lovely and blue although I tend to team it with black leggings for a bit of a contrast. I love the floral print and the lace edges make it lovely and girly. It also fits really well and gives a nice swish too when I move.


My other dress has a pompom trim – with really tiny pompoms along the edges. It has a mix of blues, reds and black in the bold print and again fits so well! It’s a skater style dress which flicks out nicely in the skirt.


Both dresses have a nice mix of cotton and elastane, giving them a slight stretch and making them a really flattering shape. They are cut really nicely and I love wearing them – whatever the occasion!


Both dresses have an RRP of £20.00 each.

Disclosure: I was sent the above dresses for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.

  1. They look lovely and the shape certainly suits you. I wish I could wear leggings – my legs are too chunky to do so, so I rarely wear dresses. Although I must get one out with my knee length boots because I do want a change from trousers for work.

  2. I share your uniform in winter – so many lovely combinations! These dresses are beautiful, I love the first tunic on you. And may I say I think you’re looking very slim tooooooo! x x

  3. Ooh, these dresses look lovely. I really like the leggings and dresses look, although I’m not really sophisticated enough to pull it off, I’m more of a jeans, hoodies and trainers type person myself.x
