Frugal Fashion Find: Dorothy Perkins

Dorothy Perkins outfit circa 2008

I first discovered Dorothy Perkins while on a study abroad with my sister five years ago. After learning about the Beatles in The History of Rock and Roll, and sharing what Spark Notes had taught us the night before in our British poetry class, we would end the day with a grocery stop at Tesco and then peruse the racks of our local Dorothy Perkins. We admired the unique designs and fabrics, and also the fact that nobody back home would have the same pieces. 

I love Dorothy Perkins for its trendy styles, affordable prices, and the high quality of materials used in their pieces. I still have, and wear, some of the pieces I bought on that trip! These factors make Dorothy Perkins my first Frugal Fashion Find. Thanks to the magic of the internet, Dorothy Perkins apparel is now available to those of us across the pond from its British origins.

  3. Kelvin, a camera-shy Londoner, says the idea for the brand came to him while he was out fishing. Since setting up that Glasgow shirt business 25 years ago, he has earned an estimated fortune of £96m, according to the Sunday Times rich list, and catapulted into the fashion aristocracy.
