Haul: Dorothy Perkins Vintage Prints and Jewels

Dorothy Perkins Haul
After a much needed back massage the other day, I floated into the shops to browse some of the new spring collections (it would be rude not to).  After a long winter, it's always a welcome sight to see spring peeping round the corner.  I found a lovely top and some nice jewellery at bargain prices in Dorothy Perkins which I thought I would share. 

Paisley Print blue top from Dorothy Perkins

Have a heart?
 I picked up this blue and white long line vest top.  If you have a long body (like me) or just hate tops riding up (accidentally tummy flash) then long line tops are the way forward.  I wear vest tops almost daily underneath the rest of my clothes.  They add an extra layer, and keep things covered even when you are reaching for that gorgeous Chanel/Prada/Rebecca Minkoff handbag off the top shelf in Harrods.  I'm a fan of vintage-esque patterns and at just over £5 it was a bargain.  I couldn't find this exact top online but they have similar red one for £5.60 (link) and they have blue ones with capped sleeves (which are probably more wearable right now pre summer link).
Dorothy Perkins Vintage Hollywood Glamour Necklace set £10.00 reduced to £2.40
Dorothy Perkins Vintage Inspired Heart Necklace £6.50 reduced to £1.40

Along with the top, I picked up a couple of pieces of costume jewellery for £1.60 and £2.40.  The glittery heart will add to any outfit and the earring and necklace set will add a bit of statement glamour.  I'd recommend having a look at Dorothy Perkins online and taking advantage of the 20% while its on.  It's also worth noting that if you are a student, Dorothy Perkins will give you a student discount on the sale items too.  Absolutely worth knowing! (I think the code TREAT20 might still work for 20% off, and I had a pop up for free next day delivery if I entered my email address when finding these items online).

Do you like my purchases?  Do you like statement necklaces?

Dupe: Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Lady Dragon Shoes Red Heart

Vivienne Westwood Dragon Lady Shoes.  Remind me of Disney princess shoes.
Vivienne Westwood makes great shoes, and her collaboration with Melissa produced some great bubblegum smelling heeled and flat jelly shoes with hearts on.  But at £120 a pop (or possibly less on ebay in the winter) they are not in everyone's budget.  However I found a cheaper dupe pair for the flat version with hearts on which retail at £28, but I have a code which means you can get them for just over £22.

Mel flat heart jelly shoes at Dorthy Perkins

These shoes are part of the Mel range at Dorothy Perkins (link), and come in 3 colours online.  Perfect shoes for walking places, but also a great addition to any holiday wardrobe.  I can see these going with shorts, or dressing up a light summer sun dress, or evening wear.  When it comes to holiday packing, I like to pack items that can be dressed up or down.  More on holiday packing later in the year :)

Use the code TREAT20 to get 20% off at the checkout, and if you are lucky you will get a popup for free delivery too :)

5 Foot 10 is undergoing a few changes at the moment so please feel free to make requests for things you'd like to see more of on 5 foot 10.
