Dotty P's I heart you

Please don't throw anything at me when I say this but I was never a Top Shop girl. I am sure it initially had more to do with location than anything else. I grew up in a small town in the suburbs where our clothing shop choices were a high end Designer Boutique, Ethel Austins and Dorothy Perkins. So when I needed an update to my 6th form 'uniform' or some function or other demanded a new top then it was off to good old Dotty P's.

But even when I moved away to Uni and later lived in Manchester for work I never really got into the Toppers posse. I worried fleetingly about this, I mean if it's good enough for Kate Moss and now (my beloved) Duchess Kate why not me? I like to think I was way ahead of my time. It hasn't passed me by that Dotty P's has developed more fashion kudos of late and I'd like to think through my loyalty and not too bad sense of style the past (quick mental arithmetic) *coughs* eighteen *faints* years might have had something to do with this.

Erm, whatever. I just plain old love it. And a recent window shopping trip and this morning some cyberbrowsing have not changed this fact. Here are some of my favourites from their new collection;

I love a shirt dress and this one is just so pretty while looking smart and funtional :

At the risk of appearing a bit dotty I saw this in the window last week and it made me all nostalgic for Pretty Woman. If only it could turn me into Julia Roberts *sighs*:

I also love a ballet pump and when I saw these my heart skipped a beat. A gorgeous colour and an unusual take on the ballet pump style:

And with autumn fast approaching with it's promise of hot chocolate in snuggly knits (can't wait!) this will be perfect:

So are you converted?*
