No Need To Per-Suede Me

British Vogue

I’ve had my eye on a suede bag, maybe a jacket too, but when I saw this dress in the March issue of British Vogue, I nearly swooned. An easy shift with patch pockets—sign me up!

Dress by Dorothy Perkins.

  • Great title. And this is Dorothy Perkins?! Not sure the suede will be the best quality, ever but it looks good in the photo…

  • I can’t believe this is Dorothy Perkins ! But the dress is absolutely amazing, I’ve never been the biggest fan of suede, but I think I need this dress (and my wallet thanks you as well xx)

  • Preston –
    would you wear something underneath?

  • I would wear a tank underneath since the arm holes are big.

  • Yes please! Love this dress…where can it be purchased?!!

  • Preston,
    I live in Houston with that in mind, what investment jacket would you pick? I have always dreamed of owning a classic Chanel or Balman. Or would you pick accessories shoes and handbags.

  • Love this dress so much I went straight to DP website. No sign of it. Emailed customer service. They had no idea (but are still looking into it). I’m wondering whether Vogue got the details wrong. It’s probably by some designer and costs five hundred quid 🙂

  • I love the dress but i too went on D.P. ‘s site and didn’t find it. Any ideas? I want that dress!!!!

  • Where IS this dress? Like previous messages I too have hunted it down high and low contacted DP direct, been in shops – staff have never heard of dress? Maybe it is all just a publicity stunt! Anyhow, now the weather is getting warmer am going off dress a bit, think I’ll spend the money I’ve saved on shoes!
