Scarlett & Jo

Scarlett and Jo have been on my radar for a while now, I haven't had much chance to try them out as none of my local stores stock the range, so when they invited me to try out one of their new dresses I was incredibly excited.

I was sent the gorgeous Floral Print Asymmetric 2 Piece Midi Dress, It is a little bit too big for me so doesn't completely work, but I am going to have a play with it and see if I can make it work with a thick belt and accessories, I will post this looks at a later date for you.

The dress is still gorgeous and I will find a way to make it work for me, but I wanted you to see it as it is now so you can see how to make it work.

Dress c/o Scarlett & Jo buy it HERE

Scarlett and Jo really have some stunning items at the moment and they recently posted their new 1940's dresses on Facebook which I am desperate to get my hands on.

They also have this amazing dress out at the moment which is divine!

I have seen a few images floating about of there new spring romance range and their is a maxi dress on its way that I am going to obsess over completely as soon as I can get a decent image of it I will let you see.

Scarlett & Jo offer beautiful quality stunning dresses get your hands on something you won't be dissapointed!

Dresolution with Marisota

I was approached quite a while ago now to take part in the Marisota Dressolution challenge, due to items not being quite right size wise and then my camera breaking again, I have taken a while to get this post up and running.

Marisota challenged us to make a change to our wardrobes this year and make a Dressolution, mine is to master casual chic, I have two outfits to show you but I am putting them in 2 posts this being the first.

I asked for three items to be sent out to me, these were the Floral Print Skater Dress, Floral Print Dress and the Biker Parker Jacket

The first item I have to show you is the Floral Print Dress

Spring is hopefully not to far away, we have had a crazily wet winter here in the UK and it is taking its toll on my mental health I love winter, but i like it to be clear and bright so i still get some sunlight.

This dress makes me think of spring, but it is still fabulous not slipped on with some leggings and layered up with a cardigan.

I have this dress in the tartan version as well and it is perfection, as is this floral version, it has little pockets  which are always a bonus on a dress and the blue is gorgeous, I teamed it with some ankle boots and bare legs, which is how I intend to wear it come spring.

I highly recommend this dress, and at only £35 it is perfection for your wardrobe.

Take a look at whats new at Marisota HERE

What is your Dressolution, more colour, tackling trousers, more dresses or something completely different, let me know. 


Taking Shape

A while ago I was approached to review an item form a brand new to the UK, Taking Shape. Origionally an Austrailian Brand, Taking shape are now in the UK as an online and high street presence.

They offer a huge variety of clothing for women in sizes 14-26. I am very excited to head to peterborough and check out one of their stores, as plus sizes on the high street are dwindling so something new is fabulous.

I asked for the Queenie Tunic to be sent to me, I have been trying to get my casual wardrobe to be a little more fabulous, everything in my current collection seems to either be super dressy or scruffy, I want to look fabulous all the time!

It comes in this very beautiful purple colour and the gorgeous green which is the one I went for, I would say that the sizes come up quite large.

The tunic is very relaxed but feels beautiful, it is a fairly thin material so ideal for the transition between seasons. 

Taking shape offer some very beautiful items and is well worth a look, head on over to the website HERE 

Do you aim for casual chic? do you hit it or miss it like I usually do.

Lust List - Oriental Prints

Oriental prints are quite simply awesome! I love them. Slowly I am spotting lots of beautiful oriental prints in fashion and I want them all.

Simply Be took my breath away today with this stunning dress, I love the colour combination it is so bright and summery, this makes me actually want summer to arrive and I am totally a winters child. I can see this being dressed down for work with a long cardigan and flats or for a night out with my husband dressed up in heels and a clutch.

Valentines day is on its way in a couple of weeks and if I had any money I would be buying this and making Marc take me for dinner. For now I will just have to lust over it!

Anna Scholz for simply be have also produced an amazing monochrome print that it very oriental in style with maybe some tropical thrown in, the dress version has really caught my eye. It is perfect for work wear or a night out.

The last offering form Simply be is this cute Oriental Print Blouse which would be perfect in the summer with shorts or jeans, I am going to have to make sure I get hold of this!

I also spotted this very pretty dress on the Dorothy Perkins website

Do you love Oriental prints or do you try to avoid them?
