I first saw this ring in store and admired how strikingly beautiful it was, but I didn’t realise just how much I needed it in my life, until I was given the chance to own it. The Pandora Silver, Black Spinel & Cubic Zirconia Ring at £99 has literally become that one piece of jewellery that I actually want to wear, and even panic when I can’t find it. I always say I’m not a big jewellery person, but this ring has really changed my mind and now, I can’t go anywhere without it. I’ve started having my nails done as a monthly pick me up treat, and having this wonderfully imposing and glorious ring on makes me feel a little like a Disney Villain, in the best of ways, of course! I mean more like the glamorous and sassy Disney Villains you see on Once Upon a Time…..
The gorgeous Pandora ring came from Joshua James Jewellery, where they stock everything from Pandora, and Armani to Michael Kors! I never thought I’d be the type to become obsessed with Pandora, and I’m definitely not going down the charm bracelet route anytime soon, but I certainly have my eyes on more rings…. I did want to wait to get the perfect photos to really show off the ring, and thankfully whilst in Liverpool last weekend, we got them!
The Scarlett And Jo Black Prom Dress (£65 but now £45.50 as there’s 30% off), landed on my door last week and at first, I really didn’t think it suited me at all. At the time I tried it on braless and with my hair and makeup undone, so of course, I didn’t look or feel like my regular self. Knowing I just needed the right equipment, I set to planning my outfits for Liverpool and just decided to go with it and pack it regardless and I’m really glad I did. The Prom Dress actually has a very thin belt, but not the usual plastic ones, this is basically a ribbon. Even though I’ve sized down to a 20 in Scarlett & Jo, in some places there’s still a little extra material. So, I used the ribbon to ‘trap’ the extra material and create a defined waist, before adding a belt to cover it up and define it more.
Silly me decided to buy an awful lot of belts before losing weight, which means they don’t quite pull me in as much as they used to, and instead, they just create a natural definition. Either way I’m fine with, but I do think with this dress on a smaller frame, it’s easy to feel a little drowned in material, so a tighter or thicker belt would be much more preferred for me. I find the sheer sleeves to be so flattering and comfortable. I had no issues at all with them and I felt that on photos, they really make my arms look lovely. A comment I don’t often make about them due to a skin condition covering them. The neckline is perfect to keep you covered up but still a little boob on show and depending on the fit of your dress and your bra, it means they look amazing.
As you can see on my 5’3 self, it’s quite long and on a warmer day, the leggings are definitely coming off! This does mean that one someone much taller than me, it would probably be around knee length, which is what a lot of people always ask me about with Scarlett & Jo dresses. This dress combined with my Pandora ring is definitely one of my new favourite day outfits and I already can’t wait to wear it again!
What do you think?
*Being the Face of Scarlett & Jo means I do receive the dresses to wear and if I wish, review, this one is amazing and I had to share. The ring was also gifted. Fancy photos were taken by Alfie.
