Dorothy Perkins

I've been getting emails and seeing a lot of Dorothy Perkins skirts on Surely Sonsy's website. However, it wasn't until today that I ordered a couple of dresses off their website. I'm not yet sure how this British retailer's clothes will fit, although I'm hoping it is similar to the fit of Asos clothing.

I had a 15% off coupon code for signing up for emails plus a free shipping code. Unlike Asos' free shipping, Dorothy Perkins' standard shipping is $10. However, Dorothy Perkins gives you an estimate arrival day at the time you place your order, which is pretty much in line with the two-week time frame it takes for my Asos orders to arrive.

The prices are pretty good (dresses average $50 when not on sale). When I've looked at the site in the past, I didn't see anything cutting edge or that screamed 'you gotta buy me.' However, on my last visit, I did see the new arrivals are a bit more trendy.

Although leopard print is still in, I'm seeing a lot of snake prints sneaking into the mix in accessories and skinny jeans.  And while both these dresses are no-no items with their cap sleeves, that's an easy remedy with blazers.
