Shopping Time: Optical Illusion Dress from Dorothy Perkins

Dorothy Perkins Lace Panel Neopreen Dress in purple (get it here) and green (here), 35£.
Rochie iluzie optica Dorothy Perkins in varianta mov (o gasiti aici) si verde (o gasiti aici), 35£ (aprox. 200 ron).

Ma tenteaza de ceva vreme genul acesta de rochie, care creeaza iluzia optica a unei talii subtiri cu ajutorul aplicatiei de material intr-o culoare inchisa (de obicei negru) de pe partile laterale.
Varianta propusa de Dorothy Perkins mi se pare una din cele mai reusite – materialul pare a fi unul rigid, care nu lasa sunculitele sa-si faca de cap, culorile sunt frumoase si “in trend” (daca va intereseaza acest aspect), la fel si aplicatia de dantela (trendul BAROC din acest sezon inseamna brocart, dantela, catifea, broderii cu fir auriu etc.). In plus comentariile cumparatoarelor sunt numeroase si in majoritate favorabile – ceea ce de obicei este un semn foarte bun.
La rochia verde au inceput deja sa dispara din masuri, asa ca daca va place, grabiti-va sa o cumparati, mai ales ca astazi este livrarea gratuita!

EN: I’ve been tempted for a while by this type of dress that creates the optical illusion of a small waist with the help of dark-coloured panels (usually black) on the sides.

This one by Dorothy Perkins is one of the better I’ve seen – the fabric seems to be quite thick and rigid (so should there happen to be any …ssshh…fat rolls, the fabric hopefully won’t let them make a most undesirable appearance), the colours are beautiful and “on trend” (if this is something that influences you) and so is lace (the lavish BAROQUE trend this season means brocade, velvet, lace, gold detailing etc.). Plus the buyers’ reviews are numerous and mostly positive, which usually means you’ve got a winner.

The green dress is already out of stock in some sizes, so hurry up and buy it if you like it, especially since today they’re offering free worldwide delivery!
