I've not been able to do much sale shopping this season as my bank account has been depleted from Christmas, but temptation got the better of me, and I couldn't resist snapping up a few bargains from Dorothy Perkins last week.
I bought a fox print t-shirt, a red blouse with a peter pan collar, and a basic red t-shirt (which I added to get free delivery and may return). I've had the raccoon tee a little while now, but have yet to show you or wear it.
First up is the bow collar top in a beautiful shade of tomato red. It's a thin blouse made from chiffon, and has a peter pan type collar which is joined in the middle to look like a bow. I bought it to wear with patterned skirts, but it would look equally pretty with a great pair of jeans. I'm really pleased with this purchase as I'm lacking plain coloured tops and this one is lovely.
It was originally £25 and on sale for £15. It also comes in blush, although very few sizes are left now.
I bought another red top, a cotton scoop neck tee with three quarter length sleeves, again to pair with patterned bottoms. It fits well, but I'm conscious of my lumps and bumps in it, so I may be returning this one. I actually only added it to my basket to reach the free delivery offer with the intention of returning it later to save the cost. These basic tees are £8 and come in a variety of colours.
I bought this amazing raccoon tee in October, but I don't think I've shared it with you yet. I missed out on the fantastic ASOS raccoon shirt, which I was dying to own, so when I found that Dorothy Perkins were selling a t-shirt with a similar print I knew I had to have one. I just can't resist a quirky print.
It's a soft ivory coloured tee with cheeky little raccoons and maple leaves all over it, and I adore it. The only fault I have with it is that it's a little large on me as my regular size was out of stock and it's designed to look over sized, but it looks cute tucked in to a skirt, and I imagine it'd work with a pair of skinny jeans, too.
It's now sold out online, but it's definitely worth keeping your eyes open for in store. Looking back at my accounts, I saw it retailed at £22, but I bought it on sale for less than £18.
Isn't the print adorable?
I'd been wanting this fox print tee since it landed in early Autumn, and as luck would have it, it resurfaced in a workable size last week in the sale, so I snapped it up fast. It was originally £22, but on sale for £12. It's also sold out completely online now, so I'm glad I found it. I've loved foxes since I was a little girl, and remember having a black t shirt with foxes on it when I was about eight or nine, so this one makes me a little nostalgic. It's just so cute!
It's the same design and size as the raccoon top, so it's a little bigger than I'd have liked, but I'm looking forward to making it work for me. I'm sure balancing the looseness with a fitted skirt or pair of trousers will do the trick.
Lots of lovely little foxes.
I don't think I'll ever grow out of my love for quirky and unusual patterns. I can't get enough of them.
I also bought two collars in nude and black (out of stock) on sale from Dorothy Perkins during another shopping trip, but I forgot to pack them. I'll share them here when I return home next weekend.
