Dorothy Perkins 19nineteen collection + giveaway!

Today sees the launch of Dorothy Perkins' new capsule collection, 19nineteen - so-called as 1919 was the year the brand launched. The range is inspired by street style, with dressed down separates with edgy detailing. To celebrate the launch, Dotty P's enlisted a few style bloggers to play dress up with some of the items from the range... One of them was me!


(Shop 19nineteen)
(See my feature in the DP magazine!)


I rely on prints quite a lot to express my style, so I wasn't sure if this stylishly uncluttered range would suit me, but I have been surprisingly hooked on the gold flecked vest and snake print leggings since the shoot (I got to keep these items as I had to sprint off straight from the location to catch the train back to work!) 

The photos were shot by Phill Taylor, who was lovely. The other bloggers involved were Stella and Vivienne, who looked effortlessly beaut in everything, unlike moi with a barnet that makes me look like a crazed ventriloquist dummy if the wind blows it even slightly out of place! Oh, well. At least I have my health! Joking aside, it was a really fun experience, and lovely to see Dorothy Perkins shaking things up a bit with this new capsule collection!

So, what do you think of 19nineteen?

  5. I really like the Step hem relaxed vest in white and black. Although it is one of the cheaper things from the range - I would get lots of wear out of this.

    You look gorgeous in your photos (not at all like a ventriloquist's dummy)I like the pieces you chose - they suit you very muchly.

  6. Owh, those tan sandals are super cute, I could do with a pair like that in the lead up to warmer weather. Love the way you've put it all together too, very un-ventriloquist dummy. xx

  7. I adore those black ankle grazers! They'll be cute all year round. :) x

  8. I love the step hem vest. Simple but has that edge! I even think the pencil skirt with the snake print would look great grunged up with some DM's and a slouchy stitch knit.
    Gorgeous pics of you, and no dummy hair in sight.

  10. I really like the black ankle grazer jeans; their length would make them perfect for wearing in spring and summer with a pair of sandals or boat shoes :) They're really versatile and would look great with pretty much any print.
    It's great to see you in the DP magazine, you look brilliant!

  13. The foil leggings I'd say! :-) You look great in the photo's as ever, not a crazed dummy in sight! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  14. Think I would have to pick the neutral jersey knit top in a large size - I imagine it would be perfect to throw on during the unpredictable British summer, or at the beach if it gets a bit nippy! The colour is very versatile too, so could get a good number of wears out of that! :)

  36. The black/silver Leggings are to die for! I'd mix them with a thrifted, punk shirt and my DM's with some feminine jewellery for the daytime. Once the sun sets, i'd switch to a sheer shirt and sky-high platforms for cocktails and dancing. Wonderfully versatile, well done on the styling piece Gem! x

  56. Offt I can't choose between the knit top or the black ankle grazers! I love them both but I think the ankle grazers are more spring appropriate. Great giveaway and I love the outfit you put together, Gem out of the 19NINETEEN collection x

  88. I chose a multi coloured tank top to build a new wardrobe around for Christmas and have never found any other thing to go with it. I still like it and live in hope that one day I'll wear it. It's a fantasy of mine to have a capsule wardrobe, the idea of 19 is good! The piece that I like best is the grey animal foil t-shirt. It reminds me of the 1980's.

  92. My favourite item in the collection is probably the cream linen foil vest because it's simple and you can wear it with anything, but you can also jazz it up very easily for going out. It's also pretty summery which is nice. I love your blog!
