Scarlett and Jo are one of the brands that I just keep coming back to. I absolutely love the styles and quality of their dresses and now with the beautiful Georgina Grogan being the face of Scarlett & Jo, her Instagram account is like one massive billboard for me. My bank account is not so happy with this arrangement, but when you buy a Scarlett & Jo dress, you know that it is going to last and that you’ll be able to wear it to a number of occasions. I justify my purchases by telling myself that I’m not just buying a dress… I’m buying an investment.
Sometimes it’s nice to just stick on a pair of jeans rather than prance around in pretty dresses and today was one of those days! I’ve had a lot of problem with jeans recently, in that I have bought 3 pairs from Select Fashion and the zip has broken on every single pair. When I was younger my go to place for jeans was Dorothy Perkins, but since I had some vouchers from Evans leftover, I thought why not give them a try. I am so glad that I did!
A few weeks ago I was contacted by House of Fraser, introducing me to their plus size collection. The only department I’ve ever shopped in before is their beauty department however, many a day I have glanced through the windows and dreamt of all of the beautiful clothing inside. A favourite of mine has to be the Ted Baker collection with its floral prints and floaty detail but I know the sizing doesn’t go up very far so I’ve pretty much ruled that out.
I’ve not really shopped in Evans for quite a while but when I was in the Cardiff branch coveting over Scarlett & Jo dresses, so many things caught my eye so I have been checking their website regularly ever since. Evans have really upped their game providing a number of fashionable pieces for women with curves in sizes 14 to 32. I really like how they start at a UK size 14 too, because a size 14 and 16 are sometimes overlooked in plus size clothing which is something that I have only recently discovered. They have also been collaborating with amazing upcoming fashion designers in their Cut For Evans collection which launched earlier this year and last week saw the launch of their second edition.
