Request: Mint Cocktail Dress


I recently got an email from Kristen. She is on the hunt for a mint dress to wear to her sister's wedding this summer. She asked if I could find something under $75. I found 8 somethings under $60. Boom.



1 - Mint Asymmetric Pleated Dress - Dorothy Perkins - $55.00
2 - Empire State of Mint Dress - Modcloth - $47.99
3 - Mint Round Neck Flare Dress - Dorothy Perkins- $44.00
4 - Sage of Aquarius Dress - Modcloth - $52.99
5 - About the Artist Dress in Mint - Modcloth - $52.99
6 - Jersey Knit Tiered Dress - Target - $24.99
7 - Work with Me Dress in Mint - Modcloth - $49.99
8 - Mint Lace Dress - Dorothy Perkins - $59.00

I was pretty surprised at the great options that came from Dorothy Perkins (never heard of that brand). If I had to pick my favorites I would say 1,3,4 & 8, but I like them all! What's your favorite?

  1. A lot of bloggers have been posting Dorothy Perkins' dresses recently, but I'm nervous to try out a new online brand. Is it legit? Has anyone ordered from DP? How is the quality and sizing? Thanks!

    1. See Melanie's comment below. DP appears to be a UK brand that has recently opened up to the US.

  3. I love Dorothy Perkins! I shop there A LOT when I'm in Scotland. They are typically a little more expensive, but really not too bad. For me personally, the sizing is right on. However, the things in my closet are in UK sizes. I've never ordered anything online. I love dress #1!

    1. So pretty! Kristen was looking for something with sleeves that wasn't sheer, but that dress is a stunner (and such a great price!)

  6. I'm born and raised in the UK and Dorothy Perkins has been around here since 1909 (my Grandma now 97 yo shopped there LOL!) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorothy_Perkins

  7. I didn't know you took requests! I've got a doozy for you if you're up for it! I need a Malibu blue dress for a wedding in June in Florida. Sleeves are a must (if its at all possible) because I don't want to wear a shrug or mini-cardi in the heat. Also I think they tend to make the outfit appear too informal. But I love a good maxi, and I'm easy as long as the dress reaches my knees.

    1. Sorry I should add that I don't want to go too much over $50-75 range, but I'll go to $100 if its perfect
