I believe I’m a costume individual now?!
Except you’ve been residing below a rock you’d have seen my a number of DISSH * raves on Instagram and TikTok. I’m a lady OBSESSED. I first found them via a TikTok remark, made an order and BAM now I want my wardrobe to include everything of the web site. I really feel like I lucked out with my first order in that every thing I ordered fitted like a glove, made me really feel fab and felt distinctive in my wardrobe. It was like I’d discovered one other 17897 outfit formulation in a single order. So right here’s a little bit of a DISSH multi function – my high items, my shopping for suggestions and what my wish-list seems to be like…
MY TOP PIECES
DISSH Donna Black Sleeved Midi Dress* – A slinky, short-sleeve black costume that flares out barely and sits as extra of a full-length costume for me, it’s completely good. I really feel like I’ll get lots of put on over this over the approaching months. Heavy sufficient to skim the physique, however not too heavy that you simply’ll be sweating in all of it summer time lengthy.
DISSH Ada Stone Long Sleeve Black Top* – That is in all probability my most-worn DISSH buy up to now. It simply provides a little bit of one thing one thing to my customary denims and a high outfit components. I like the flared sleeve and SOMEBODY STOP ME when the black model comes again in inventory in my dimension.
DISSH Ada Stone Long Sleeve Midi Dress* – Sure, sure I purchased the costume model of the highest too. With a tie again it nips in barely on the waist and the flared skirt is simply soooo lovely. Actually I simply really feel fab once I put on it. Because of the lengthy sleeve I’ve been getting put on out of it already by pairing it with a knee-high boot.
MY BUYING TIPS
SIZING ADVICE – I put on a medium throughout the board of their clothes and stretch tops and discover that to suit completely (for reference I’m a U.Ok. dimension 10-12). It will get just a little trickier in the case of numerical sizing. I’m between a U.S. dimension 6-8, so from the items I’ve bought I are likely to dimension as much as the 8 (I’d all the time suggest checking the dimensions information on their web site too). That appears to suit nicely for the tops and for the trousers they arrive up barely outsized, but it surely’s all the time simpler to take away material if wanted. For reference I’m 5’7″ and I’d say the trousers come up just a little lengthy on me.
FABRICS TO LOOK FOR – From my expertise of the issues I’ve ordered and been despatched, the items which have actually stood out are those constituted of that heavy ribbed material. The standard is simply so good, they really feel like DISSH’s signature items and they’re one thing that I haven’t been in a position to simply dupe on the high-street. Second to which might be their linen units. ARKET* do an excellent job of catering for this class within the U.Ok, however the sleeveless tops and waistcoats are just a little trickier to dupe.
FABRIC CARE – I’m fairly certain most items I’ve say ‘hand wash solely‘ on the tag, however have fared nicely on the ‘chilly hand wash‘ setting on my washer. As a result of the material is so heavy I discover it greatest to hold them to dry as flat as I can and ensure that I maintain every thing folded in storage as to not stretch something.
THE DUTIES – Okay let’s be actual for a minute – and this pains me just a little to confess as a result of the fee is excruciatingly excessive – but it surely’s useful to reveal the duties quantity simply so that you don’t find yourself blindsided. Reminder that that is the DHL import duties/tax funds for the U.Ok. My first order got here to a complete of $319.98 and the cost was £122.02 and my second order got here to a complete of $575.95 and the cost was £194.41. Ouch. The day DISSH will get a European warehouse is a harmful day for us all – ha.
SECONDHAND FINDS – As soon as I realised I’d fallen in love, the very first thing I did was take a look at the secondhand market. The most effective place I’ve discovered is eBay*, adopted by Vestiaire Collective* after which Vinted (I truly scored a fab high for like 25% of the unique value there lately). As a result of the returns course of internationally is at the price of the client, it means the preloved market is definitely fairly good and nicely value testing.
