Work It Out: Instalment Vingt-Neuf

I have had a quiet love of Dorothy Perkin's Closet collection for some time. The 40s and 50s are my favourite fashion eras, a time when women's curves were celebrated and exagerated. I think that Closet definitely draws it's ideas from vintage shapes and their fitted, structured dresses are just beautiful.
 This is the pink asymmetric dress from Closet (now on sale for £35!)
I paired the dress with patent nude DP shoes (on sale for £30!). I often find it difficult to find a true 'nude' as I'm quite pale so many nudes look too brown, or even grey, next to my skin tone. These really are a great colour, and the slight platform makes them comfortable enough for the day too.

I have so many Closet dresses on my shopping list! Here are a few of my favourites:
 Fuschia Belted Flared dress - On sale for £25

  12. Hi, I have just managed to get my hands on this dress after seeing it online and on your blog, the only thing is mine seems to look longer on so did you have yours taken up a little as it seems to look a lot nicer the length it is on you? :-)
