Navy Blue Boots and Accessories from Dorothy Perkins this Spring

Navy Blue Boots and Navy Blue Block Hand Bag

On a recent trip to Dorothy Perkins I came across a gorgeous large hand bag, and some beautifully coloured suede boots in the Spring sale. I liked both so much to buy them so I thought I would review them for you.


The boots have a slight heel and decent grip on the bottom. The stitching details are simple but I really like the shape around the front and the ruched ankles to them. The colour is a strong navy blue shade, with a black base. They would compliment skinny jeans well, or a pretty summer dress if you can match the blue.

I got them with 30% off in the sale, they were usually £29.00.
Some sizes of these exact boots are still available in stores and online, the link to which is here


The hand bag is a lovely design, it has a main zipped pocket which has two additional slip sections inside it. Plenty of room to be a large bag for long days  out or even an over night bag in the summer.
It has decent sized shoulder straps and also contains metal loops sowed into the top, an additional long strap that can be used as a shoulder one. This handbag has a variety of navy blue shades in both the straps and the panels, the block colours compliment one another and gives the bag an illusion of being even larger than you’d think. It even has a cute little luggage tag detail.
I do wish there was an extra zip pocket instead of one large area inside, but it’s an excellent bag and I’ve already used it several times.
I got this in the sale at £20.00, but it would usually be priced at £35.00.

Over all I am very happy with both of these items. I loved the choice that was available at Dorothy Perkins as well, all the shapes and colours of boots, lots of good sized bags to choose from too.

Review of ‘Megan’ Slouch Boots from Dorothy Perkins

‘Megan’ Slouch Boots

On my blog today is a short review about some Ankle Boots I bought from Dorothy Perkins in the January sale.

I picked up my DP order a few weeks ago, I had these two pairs of gorgeous boots in the sale! I chose 1 grey and 1 brown because I so often go for black and wanted a change this year.

I have a great many pair of boots already, yet each and every Winter new styles and colours come out and I’m tempted to get more. My reason for deciding on these two depended on their colour and height. I usually go for flat or slight heeled footwear, and I donated many of my old pairs of shoes and boots to charity over Christmas. So I treated myself to these ‘Megan’ boots as called by Dorothy Perkins online.

Appearance

I really like the shape of the front of the boot itself, and the ruched details around the top half draw the eye to your ankles. This style can make you appear a little taller when paired with skinny jeans, elongating the look of the leg due to the short height of the boot. If they had a slight heel then this would enhance the effect.

There’s also a nice stitching detail sectioning off the ruched third of the boot with the foot section, with a tab on the outer side which I think looks a lot like an arrow. The boot has sections where the stitching meets, these lines draw your eye around the footwear.

Styling

I chose to wear both of these boots with various coloured skinny jeans, and even black leggings with a causal looking cotton dress. I found the shades of both the boots I bought to be quite versatile.

Pro – Ankle Height is Great For A Range Of Looks
Con – No Substantial Grips Underneath So Not Ideal In Icy Weather

Final Opinion – A great looking boot which will be ideal for the Winter to Spring transition. Stylish and soft they are a staple ankle boot for most wardrobes. This style can be paired with both jeans and dresses for a smart but casual appearance.

My final Review for these pair of boots is;

Quality 4/5
Value for Money 4/5
Appearance 4/5
Comfort 4/5

Quality; Excellent stitching and good soles.
Value for Money; January Sale, great prices.
Appearance; Variety of colours available for a range of looks.
Comfort; Soft exterior and smooth sole interior, comfortable and I believe true to size fit.

Overview

I am yet again extremely happy with my purchases from Dorothy Perkins. I don’t think I will need anymore footwear for a while now, as we are soon entering Spring, and I would hope for better weather here in the United Kingdom.
These pairs of boots are versatile in outfit use and will be ideal throughout the year, even pairing with dresses in the warmer months. I am looking forward to wearing them with a variety of my clothes.

I hope you have enjoyed this post. If you have any questions about the item then please feel free to leave me a comment. I shall leave you the link to it at the bottom of this page as well.

Dorothy Perkins Brown Aria Fur Lined Boots Review

When you find a pair of shoes or boots that fit you perfectly, it’s definitely something to shout about I think. So when I purchased these lovely looking brown boots from Dorothy Perkins in my most recent order, I just had to review them.

aria-boots-2-swThe reason I liked the look of these so much is all to do with the soles, which seemed as though they had grips ideal for Winter. The problem that you often find with shoes online is that you never get to see what they look like underneath, only from the side view. Although with this particular pair of boots you can see from the angle available that the sole has extensive channels for gripping and a one inch heel as well. They were sturdily made and strong to touch, combining two detailed buckles for a stylish design, and the inside is fur lined for comfort and warmth.

Styling these Boots

Personally I live in skinny jeans, jeggings and leggings, all of which work well with boots that are ankle height. This particular style allow for a little gap for you to tuck in jeans or trousers, and the fur lining makes them grip the fabric attached to your legs for extra comfort when moving around.

My final Review of this pair of boots is;
Quality 5/5
Value for Money 4/5
Appearance 5/5
Comfort 5/5
Delivery 5/5

Quality; I found the quality of these boots excellent. The stitching, the grips on the base of the shoe, the colour and the style. They are leather look but feel very durable all the same.
Money; I was lucky enough to get the boots on a weekend where 20% off was included, very happy with the amount that I paid. Great quality for the price either way, they are usually £39.00 but are currently on sale.
Appearance; Both stylish and on trend, I think these boots will be a staple in my wardrobe until I wear them out. Which I hope by the strong design and gripped bases will be quite some time. They look great with skinny jeans or leggings and are available in this brown/tan colour and now Dorothy Perkins do a black pair! I would love those as well!
Comfort; They are rather comfortable, a nice shape and wide enough to accommodate toes, but also with the fur lining making it soft and warm.
Delivery; The boots were delivered in a box to keep them dust free when not in use, and I love that they also came with tissue paper stuffed inside to maintain their shape while in transit.

Overview
Thank you very much for reading this review, I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing my thoughts about these new boots with you all. When you find a company or a brand whose footwear fits true to size, you can usually order with confidence in the products, and this is what I have received every time I have bought Boots from Dorothy Perkins.

I hope you have enjoyed this post. If you have any questions about the item then please feel free to leave me a comment. I shall leave you the link to it at the bottom of this page as well.
