THE BLOCK HEELS

When shopping, I prefer stores that are not very volatile towards street wear trends in their collections, that don't let the ever-changing trends dictate their style for the season, that instead stick to their own genre and only adopt trends that match their image. The UK-based brand Dorothy Perkins in my opinion falls into this category, (you don't see DP going from shredded tees in one collection to neon headbands the next, do you) which is why I have always had a certain fascination for their collections. DP does not offer fashion for girls who are still exploring different styles to find their true colour, it offers fashion for women who have already found and very proudly embrace it.
Now their Spring 2014 collection is in store and they have cleverly come up with 10 items they refer to as Style Essentials. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work with them and get the first view of the Style Essentials items. The Style Essentials do not claim themselves to be the key pieces of the current trend, but they "work perfectly with the latest trends and are versatile enough to see you through the whole season - and beyond," as Charlotte Pettican, DP's Buying Director, puts it.
The block heels I'm wearing here is one of my favourite Style Essentials. This pair is perfect in terms of simplicity and comfort, and matches anything you wear. I guess by now most of you would already own a pair considering how dominant they are in today's footwear trends but in case you have not—or if you are looking for another recommendable pair of block heels—these babies are the one to snatch.
You will discover the other 9 essential items in the coming posts on my blog, but otherwise you can always visit their stores and find out for yourself about the other Style Essentials for Spring 2014. This is not to be missed out on.
To spice up the Spring 2014 Style Essentials merriment, you are most welcome to partake in DP's styling competition where the prize is a DP voucher worth up to Rp10.000.000,-.
