No matter how big and bulging our wardrobes become, we girls always, always, always will protest that we just don’t have enough clothes. We’ll always need that extra pair of heels to go with those trousers or a smarter jacket for that dress. So it drives boyfriends crazy and they wish you’d stick to, say, a great pair of jeans and white tee for a no fuss morning, every morning. We don’t know if we could limit ourselves like that. So we have to applaud the lovely Rachel Cornik, Dorothy Perkin’s PR Co-ordinator and resident fashionista for signing up to (what sounds like our nightmare) challenge… The Daily Dress Up. Five key DP items and three basics only are created into a different outfit EVERY DAY for a month. Oh. Beejeesus. We may have dramatically failed after the first couple of days, but Rachel’s creative side has kicked into action and every outfit so far has been an absolute triumph.
Style Hunter met Rachel last night for a yummy dinner, and we can confirm that she really is embracing the challenge – even outside of the office. “Having such a small selection to choose from, strangely enough, makes outfit decisions easier rather than harder, (although things may start getting a little tricky now it is the 3rd week!)” she told us. A few of her own existing clothes are allowed, but the gorgeous new season items she can play with in this genius reccesionista wardrobe from Dotty P’s are as follows: A cream lace dress (check out this week’s mag and you’ll see that cream lace is the way do festival chic in this season), a floral maxi (classic summer staple), a pink corsage jacket (statement), floral culottes (so cute!) and a nude pin tuck blouse (very of the season). Who’d think you could tuck a dress into jeans so well, or wear a soft blouse as a hero jacket instead? Rachel does! Check out some of her best outfits here and cheer her on as she completes the last 18 days of her challenge.
