Archive for the ‘Stylists Updates’ Category

The joy of the web is that it really means sites are very much a three-way-conversation. Between us and you and everyone else. We ask. You tell us. We listen. Then we make it happen. That’s the idea here at Dressipi. As has often been said when it comes to the clothes that we recommend, we really do believe in fabulous pieces that are multi-tasking, versatile gems. With that in mind we’ve updated your CLOTHES I OWN features. When you buy something off Dressipi, the garment will automatically appear in your ‘Clothes I Own’ list, with a date of purchase,as in the pic below:

This is not to remind you when you last shopped! It let’s us understand what is in your wardrobe. Why do we care? Well, we are in the process of building a magic outfit builder. We want to create outfits for you from clothes that are already hanging up in your wardrobe (no matter what the season) with new pieces you might want to buy or indeed buy. If you return your purchases, you can simply click on the “returned” button bottom right of the image (see below). If you bought the piece a a gift, simply click on the “gift” button bottom left of the image. The garment will then disappear from your “Clothes I Own” list.

It’s been a bumper week for Dressipi!! Firstly our site has had a fabulous fashion make-over so we now look all glossy and new. You can see the before and after shots to the home page below – fashion huh! There has been a lot snapping going on lately. And with this comes the what-to-wear for your close-up issue. Last Friday, a photographer from The Times popped in to shoot Sarah and Donna for the great article that appeared on Wednesday in the paper. Donna sported a gorgeous snakeskin print blouse from By Malene Birger with a low v-neck, perfect for softening the look of her broad shoulders, as well as a must-have black pencil skirt. Sarah showcased her enviable curves in a fabulous figure sculpting black dress from DKNY, all of which were kindly loned to us for the shoot from Fenwicks. That sharp grey blazer is Sarah’s Dressipi purchase from Zara. It’s sold out! Our wonderful press coverage started with a mention in The Independent and exploded into a fabulous full blown 2 page feature in The Times. Well done Donna and Sarah. If you haven’t read it, here is the link to the piece. With this came a whole new flock of fabulous new members. Welcome. Here is the link to The Times article: http://tinyurl.com/5rl8erp


 

 

 

 


Bank holiday weekend. Friday early evening. Sun shining (for the last time), cold glass of champagne in my hand, bar all a buzz and my phone rings. It’s Donna from the office: “I’m in the Selfridge’s changing room. Which dress should I buy for this wedding. Will send pics. Can you tell me which one suits my body shape?”  Here at Dressipi we love a fashion SOS. Especially when it involves lovely evening wear. And especially when it involves guiding ladies in the right direction of that all important question “What clothes suit my body shape.”

Ping. Picture number 1 zips through. A gorgeous silk jersey dress By Malene Birger that really does nothing for Dressipi’s resident bean pole, Donna’s shape. “Nope”. I ping back, “it’s too shapeless on you”.


At which stage I am told the Selfridge’s shop assistant asked Donna “Are you famous?? You’ve got a stylist on speed dial??” No. With Dressipi you can all have a personal stylist at hand 24/7 so to speak (see our ASK A STYLIST service). Ping. Picture 2. Alice By Temperley’s aubergine gown. “Yes. That’s more like it. Perfect”. ….Why?

It completely suits her body shape. The neckline softens the look of Donna’s broad shoulders, because the eye is drawn to the cutout detail. And the slightly triangular skirt balances out the lower shape with the torso (strong shoulders). What’s more the ruching detail around the waist, sculpts definition. “All you need now,” I say as I pick up my glass of champagne “are some of those little pieces to cover your nipples in case it gets cold” and I realise the entire bar is looking at me as I use my hands to demonstrate these marvellous pieces to no one in particular. (What I meant are Concealits ) All the celebs use them on the red carpet, and according to the shop assistant in Selfridge’s Donna must be a celeb. She’s got a personal stylist on speed dial.
