I was kindly offered a piece to review from Scarlett & Jo’s new stunning “La Dolce Vita” collection which I love. It’s made up of stunning flattering pieces with a feminine vintage twist which I adore. There’s some pieces that haven’t came out yet such as the most incredible little black prom dress and a sultry velvet number which will be perfect for the festive season. Scarlett and Jo are an exciting brand who in my opinion are going from strength to strength with their constant stream of affordable, vintage inspired pieces to fit and flatter all body types.
One dress that IS out right now is the Jersey Knee Length Dress which is what I was sent in Red. The image online does not give this dress justice – it’s something very special. I saved this dress for a mystery dining dinner I went to as I felt it needed somewhere special for its first outing!
And here is the dress on! I went for a size 22 and it was very true to size. As it is made of jersey, I knew I could get away with the smaller of the sizes I wear as my bust would fit.
I teamed this dress with –
Vanity bag – Curve Clothing (No longer available)
Shoes – Primark
Tights – Donatella’s
Wig – Geisha Wigs
Seamed tights from Donatella’s.
Ready to go out.
Love the contrasting edging!
At the meal.
This dress is almost perfect. The neckline is high yet shows a sexy peek of cleavage and can be adjusted to show more or less by the cute bow tie. The sleeves of this dress are unlike anything I own. They’re fluted and sit gracefully which would be great for anybody with larger arms/arms they would like to cover. The waist comes in with a waist tie which is very flattering. I will admit the waist ties are very long on me (I can stand on them) but i’m only 5′ 2″ and so I just wrap them around myself twice. The skirt section (again a little long for tiny girls like me) flows beautifully and has plenty of material for swishing or dancing. It falls nicely into soft pleats which adds to the vintage glamour. This dress for me is a real winner! From the contrasting edging to the vintage glamour which is emulated throughout the dress it’s a real special piece. Oh and if you’re not a fan of Red – it also comes in blue, red floral or my favourite – black floral! And even better – there’s currently 30% off everything at Evans who stock Scarlett & Jo!
I love this dress and this brand and can’t wait to see what they’re going to bring out next!
