black & white



























Dorothy Perkins 19NINETEEN Step Hem Relaxed Vest & White Cropped Sweat.

As I mentioned in my previous post a week or so ago I won a giveaway hosted by the lovely Vivienne at Haute & Fierce where you could win two pieces of your choice from Dorothy Perkin's new 19NINETEEN collection. It's a capsule collection aimed at a younger, street style influenced audience featuring jersey separates such as these that I think are ideal for layering. I thought I'd have a go at styling the cropped jumper, it was harder to put together in an outfit than I thought, but I think that was mainly as I was having one of those days where whatever I put on didn't look right, for one reason or another. At the moment I really want to play with different lengths/proportions/asymmetry so I layered this River Island asymmetric tunic over a maxi skirt, it wasn't quite the effect I would have liked as I ended up having to get the top in a smaller size as it was all that was left in the sale, so it's nowhere near as oversized and drapey as I would have liked. It's probably almost long enough to wear on it's as a dress but I'm still suffering from a serious aversion to showing off my legs, especially anything above the knee, so the maxi lengths will have to remain for now. I also had to take these photo's quite late on when the light levels were pretty poor so apologies for the grainy appearance. Oh and further apologies for the lovely chipped nail varnish as well!
