Recently I was contacted by the lovely folks at Scarlett and Jo who sent me a couple of pieces from their range.
|A quizzical look on my face but I like the pose, so I included it.|
The design is a gorgeous feather print in shades of white, purple, blues and red. The sleeves drape softly and don't leave my arms feeling too bare, even though they're barely there (which proves confidence in all in the illusion of body coverage!) It comes with a self-tie belt which is of more than ample length. I'm 5 ft 5 (and a half) and as you can see the tunic comes just above knee level front and back. I do love it when garments are made with this girl's ample bum in mind.
This particular piece isn't out yet, but I will update with a link as soon as I've got one - it's coming out soon! Without harping on like an absolute fan-girl, I always feel good in Scarlett & Jo. I'd be equally as effusive if I'd bought this tunic with my own money as it's just stunning.
My first purchase from Scarlett & Jo was a prom dress last year, which I wore to a wedding, and also a couple of other occasions either dressed up or down. Earlier this month I wore their navy blue angel sleeve dress.
I like clothes I can put on and feel instantly at ease in. I like to look in the mirror a couple of times and know I look good - and feel good - which is what Scarlett & Jo does for me. The mixture of comfortable and pretty clothes is a winner for me as I don't like compromises. I like to look nice in something and forget I'm wearing it. The clothes are very reasonably priced to begin with (for example the navy angel sleeve dress I linked to above is only £35) but Evans often have discount codes so you can pick up pieces for even more of a steal. I recommend signing up to Evans' mailing list so you don't miss out on any of the goodies!

Thanks for reading,
