The Colour Purple: Scarlett & Jo Purple Paisley 40s Dress and Launch of the New Website


It's no secret that I love Scarlett and Jo. Their blend of modern and vintage is right up my alley, and their tailoring is all done specifically with a curvy body in mind. They have recently branched out to work with other retailers (originally they were only sold in Evans), and perhaps most excitingly yesterday they launched their very own website. There is a gorgeous selection of pieces on there (some modelled by yours truly!) and this is one of the dresses I have had my eye on since we did the shoot. 





I love Scarlett & Jo's selection of easy to wear 40s style tea dresses. I already have a few in my collection and every season I await the new prints and colours eagerly as I know these are dresses I am going to get a lot of wear out of. For me they are ideal dresses for work - they embody the vintage aesthetic I love, and at the same time I feel both professional and feminine in them.  The jersey is easy to wear and can be popped straight in the wash, and needs little to no ironing which is another plus. 







I was asked to come along and model some of Scarlet & Jo's A/W collection for the new website, and it was great to see the whole collection. Currently I have this style dress in reds, so when I saw this lovely rich purple, perfect for the cooler months, I knew I wanted to make it mine. This warm shade of purple is a great colour on redheads I think, and suits a fair complexion beautifully. I couldn't wait and picked this up at Evans, however the Purple Paisley Printed 40s Dress is now available on the new website. 



I bought this in my usual 22, knowing I would love the fit as I do with my Red Floral version.The peephole is such a sweet and flirty addition, the fluttery angel sleeves give me great arm coverage. The skirt sits just over my knee (I'm 5'8) which is perfect for me, and the tie back gives me a little more definition in the waist.

One of the most exciting things about the new Scartlett & Jo website is that the team are absolutely dedicated to only providing plus size women with a range of beautiful clothes, but they are also committed to showing their customers this gorgeous collection on a range of different size and shape bodies. The models range from a size 14 to a 32, and each and every woman looked confident and beautiful, wearing things that were created for women like them.



If you pop over to the website, you may notice a familiar face as I got to model some gorgeous pieces including the absolute decdent beauty that is the Green Velvet Maxi Dress, and the demure yet sexy Lace Panelled 40s Dress. Pop over to the website to see some more gorgeous plus size bloggers and models bringing the beautiful Scarlett & Jo creations to life. Oooh, and make sure you join the S&J club to receive 10% off all orders!
