So yesterday was Easter Sunday, and like many across the Country, I spent the day with family, my Nan to be precise. As normal I struggled to decide what to where, because obviously I have nothing in my wardrobe…. haha! But I was continually drawn to my Scarlett & Jo 2-in-1 Floral Prom Dress! I was thinking maybe it was a bit OTT for Sunday Lunch, but then I thought to myself, has that ever bothered me before…. Nah.
This dress, as many clothes do, had been winking, waving and doing everything in its power to entice me over the weeks. I had seen this on Hannah of Fabulously Fat Fashion, Naomi of Diamonds n Peals and Danielle Vanier, and they all looked gorgeous, so this only added to my wanting…..
I finally gave in last week when Evans had a flash 24% off for 24 hrs… It had to be done!!!!
I posted a pic on Instagram and got an amazing response, if I wasn’t already sure I had made the right choice, I was now! I even made someone’s mind up to buy this dress for a wedding they have coming up, as until this point they had been undecided!
Everything about this dress is a positive in my opinion. Having seen it on different women so far, it goes to show that it can suit all different shapes and sizes. If you are big busted, no fear here, as the jersey top to the dress can accommodate all chests as has enough stretch and doesn’t pull at all and is not tight, just pure comfort. The waist has an elastic band on the outside, which nips you in and gives you an amazing shape. This was the bit I was most worried about, as I have a wide elastic belt that does have a tendency to roll (if you know what I mean), but I needn’t have worried here as the band is stitched along one side so keep it nicely in place. I did keep checking it, as this was my concern and it was fine for the entire day! Being a shorty, the dress is a mid length on me, but to be honest, this length suits me better, but if you are taller then be aware of this should you decide to buy the dress. I would wear this style of dress every day if I could, and if the bank balance and the Mister could handle the full wardrobe overhaul…. Lol!
I teamed this up with some simple black court shoes and my definite fave custom piece I recently got from Black Heart Creatives, which I think I must have known I would be buying this dress soon when you look at the colours I went for. They have had an Easter promotion on this weekend, and if you manage to read this before the end of today (Monday 21st April), enter EASTER20 at the checkout and bag yourself a bargain!
I can’t forget to mention my good friend Lisa over at Off With Her Head Millinery – Milliner to the Stars and I don’t just mean me… Lol! – and I finished off my look with my February Hair Flower of the Month “Vintage Valentine” (you too can join the club with a 3 month taster subscription here, 6 month and 12 month subscriptions also available). Again, I think you will agree this flower was made for this dress, which also happens to be part of Scarlett & Jo‘s Spring Romance Collection…. I think it was fate!
I have to say that I absolutely love the Scarlett & Jo range of dresses, there are obviously some I prefer to others, and here is a little peek at some of my faves, and all currently available online at Evans:
Are you as much of a Scarlett & Jo fan as I am?
