Scarlett & Jo- The Competition I Won, And The Animal In Me

I was so lucky to win a competition on Facebook a couple of weeks ago where I could chose any dress I wanted from the Sample Sale at Scarlett & Jo. I couldn't believe it as it was such a surprise. It certainly made me cheered up in a time that has been and still are very challenging.

Scarlett & Jo had their sample sale at their offices in central London so I was lucky to get Mike to come with me up to London so I could go and pick out my dress and also look at the other goodies that was on offer for ridiculously low prices.

My good friend Mayah works for Scarlett & Jo so I had arranged with her to come up to the office a bit early to try it on as I had another event to go to the same day, but the train was delayed, so unfortunately so no early arrival for me. I met the lovely Gifi for the first time and that was such a pleasure. He is such an inspiring and lovely person. So genuine and easy going. He promised me a tour of the offices, but I had to take a rain check on that one till next month as I didn't have that much time. It was a shame as I would have loved to stayed on and chatted more. Hopefully I will have more time next time.

But I had time enough to browse through all the lovely dresses, skirts, tops and jackets that were in the Sample Sale and I chose this dress for my competition price. It's one of their lovely prom dresses. A shape and design I know suits me as I've got a few of them in my wardrobe already.

While looking for which dress to choose, I saw so many nice ones that I wanted to buy, but I had to limit myself a little bit. I still went home with 4 dresses in total.

My prize and these three are now the newest Scarlett&Jo addition to my wardrobe and I can't wear to wear them all. I absolutely adore the animal print one. I've worn it several times already and it's so easy to wear and very flattering. It's made in a thin and ultra stretchy scuba material which feels amazing on your body.

I wore it out the other night when I went out for a drink with some friends and I got lots of compliments for it.

As I love yellow and the dress is monochrome I decided to team the dress with yellow accessories and shoes. It makes the whole outfit kind of pop. I love this outfit and I can't wait to wear this dress on my holiday to Spain. 

My shoes are from Evans and are the best footwear buy of the summer.I love the scalloped design and the peep toe. It's so cute. They are sold out online, but I managed to snap up both the yellow ones and the black ones as I know these shoes will be just as much of a go to shoe next summer and on my forthcoming holidays. My yellow bracelet is just a simple plastic pearl necklace I found in a charity shop for 25p. :) Handbag is from Yours Clothing and can be found HERE. 

I absolutely adore Scarlett & Jo and the people behind the brand. They really take in what us plus size women of all sizes really wants and I can't wait for their new collection that is coming out very very soon. It's diversity the way it should be.
