I’m so shocked and grateful for all the amazing feedback from my event with Scarlett & Jo last weekend, it was an amazing day but the comments from people who came, fellow bloggers, Evans’ staff and owner of Scarlett & Jo, Gifi, have been utterly out of this World. Hopefully I will be able to come to more stores in the UK as the Face of Scarlett & Jo for more shopping events, I have my eyes on the London store, but I wonder, where would you like to shop with me?
Getting on with the new dresses, I decided to go for the most daring first, the Aqua Blue Jersey Fishtail Dress
. Daring as it’s a little different to the rest of Scarlett & Jo’s latest collection, as it’s a brightly, oriental printed, body con dress. Normally not something I would go for as I’ve been called several times (sometimes not always in a positive way) a ‘skater dress’ girl, but everyone does have that one style they’re most comfortable in and for me, it’s a fit and flare. I’ll always try new things though, especially for my favourite clothing company, totally not biassed….
Ignore the necklace, at least until July when it’s going to be on sale, but in case you can’t wait for a full review it’s from Lauryn Rose and I absolutely adore it. Almost as much as I love my Pandora ring and that’s a big deal. Anyway, this dress, as you can clearly see is quite incredible. It’s such a vibrant colour and the print is utterly stunning, even Alfie loves it for the print. As it’s a size 20, it does cling to my tummy a little but I quite like the way it looks as I like my tummy. I definitely would not recommend sizing up thought as it’s a pretty spot on fit and very stretchy, comfortable material.
On my 5’3 frame, with heels, it came to a really lovely length and it’s definitely a dress I’d wear on a fancy Summer’s day out somewhere, as this is a dress that definitely needs an occasion. The Aqua Blue Jersey Fishtail Dress is £58, but once you own a Scarlett & Jo dress, the prices become less irrelevant as you own a timeless dress that will make you look amazing for years to come. With the range, thankfully, not following fast fashion or ridiculous trends, and instead being focussed on the 40s/50s, it means you get timeless, feminine dresses that enhance your shape and make you feel amazing.
So much thought goes into Scarlett & Jo dresses that it’s absolutely fascinating to hear about, and this is one of those dresses that truly shows it. From the clever design to create an hourglass figure (which includes the design around the hips, waist and shoulder pads), the oriental pattern sourced from a design in the 40s/50s, to it’s 3/4 and fishtail bottom. In case you can’t tell, I’m rather taken by the design of this dress!
So, what do you think? And don’t forget to tweet me, Scarlett & Jo and maybe Evans about where you’d like our next shopping trip to be!
