New place to shop: Dorothy Perkins

Pin It
While surfing the Internet the other day looking for cute maternity wear, I stumbled upon a website called Dorothy Perkins. I personally haven’t heard of this site previously but it looks very promising at first glance. Dorothy Perkins is based in the UK but ships internationally. They remind me quite a bit of ASOS. They do offer petite clothing, tall clothing as well as maternity clothing. Unfortunately, they do not have a huge selection of clothing for expectant mothers. However, there are many items that caught my eyes. I definitely will keep this site in mind for future shoComposepping. Please note that I am not associated with Dorothy Perkins, just wanted to share with you guys. Here are some of my picks:

1. Cream zigzag chiffon dress, 2. Navy panel ribbed dress, 3. Cream straight cut dress, , 4. Petite floral pocket dress

1. Black lace yoke top, 2. Spotty peplum top, 3. Blush pussybow blouse, 4. Cream lace tee

1. Detachable fur collar biker, 2. Nude mid-heel court shoes, 3. Stripe high neck dress


Readers, do you have any experience with Dorothy Perkins? If so, please share =)

I've looked at her site a few times but too scared about how the sizing runs...curious to see if anything would fit!

love that store! i want all those dresses!


I've ordered before...and shipping took 3 months!! I left numerous messages to customer service, no replies. I would be cautious. Warehouse UK has thecsame things with better service!


These all look so classy and vintagey retro. love the shape of them all!

i've bought 1 dress there before and the sizing was off on that maybe by 1 size too small. return shipping from canada is expensive but it's a cute site though! xox P

@Caroline Thanks for the heads up, Caroline! I will take that into consideration for future reference.


Hi! Greetings from London!
Sydney... i've been a follower for a while!
Anyways, was surprised for you to mention Dorothy Perkins and thought since when they've become international? Anyways, i'm a petite chinese girl and I used to buy a few items from Dorothy Perkins, the petite range. They're ok. But, I find the quality not so great... very similar to Forever 21 and maybe slightly better... They forever have these discount vouchers for the UK, so, nowadays, people very rarely buy at full price... the shoes are not of great quality either... Warehouse UK is better I find. Hope this helps! R

Great find Sydney! Their styles really do remind me of the things I see on ASOS. I really like all of the dresses you picked here :D

You're welcome! I'll try to tweet a pic of the petite chain link blouse when it arrives (props to Jean's amazing eye in finding that top!)

@Laura Racheal Thanks again, Laura. Hope the top will work out for you.
