After attending our AW13 Press Event the girls from Cheryl’s Closet wrote an article about us! Now we’re not bragging but we are a loveable lot, if you don’t believe us take it from Cheryl and her girls;
‘We have had the ultimate month at Team Closet head quarters with our Cheryl’s Closet Team travelling to London for a 24 hour fashion frenzy! We were exclusively invited to attend the jones + jones press event to interview Team Jones + Jones and ask our favourite brand what is it that makes them sparkle? Why do we and celebrities have such a Style crush on Jones and Jones dresses, that one mere mention of their new A/W collections has our purses open at the ready, and makes our hearts tick as loud in London as The Big Ben upon viewing the collections ?
Our girls had what can only be described as the V.I.P treatment… Upon arrival waiting for them was a whole host of bulging goody bags for them, and a room full of celebrities including girlband XYRA from the Xfactor who modelling the new collections alongside our beautiful trio Cheryl’s Closet models Kirsty Brown, Stephanie O’ Donnell, and Charlotte Savage. Walking around brushing shoulders with celebrities, in a rainbow room of coloured sequins dresses, which would give strictly come dancing a run in the fashion bling’ stakes. The beautiful, rustic building at Jones and Jones Spittalfields Market was as enchanting as the dresses and staff themselves.. Their new collections drew inspiration from the great Gatsby and dark romance incorporating a strong lace theme which is all about bringing a touch of class and elegance to the collection. They describe ‘THEIR’ delicate lace finishing with a #love for #lace. It is to be advised of the importance of giving the wearer a quiet confidence in style with a hint of sultry suggestion of intimate lace, leaving the admirer with a lasting impression and adorning for more.
We are admiring the colour palette’s of their new collections as we move towards the darker nights and therefore we assumed a usual darker Autumnal colour palette to accompany them. We were excited to see that pastel pinks, creams and ruby reds were indeed part of the staple collections for A/W. Baroque, hints of Classic black and golds in their new Roxy dress bowled us over and set an air of excitement of what could possibly follow for their Christmas collections?
We have chosen our favourite’s exclusively for you and what we think will be their best sellers this Autumn from their captivating capsule collections. Our own design collections at Cheryl’s Closet are tailored with unique, draped open back dresses. We are loving Team jones + jones new Lorna dress with cut out sides and baroque detail, with an open back priced £65.00. Our other style crush and favourite outfit which we would style with a combined with a faux fur hat and jacket would be the Chynna playsuit. This beautiful piece with a floral scalloped edge, and trend setting tailored wide -legged tailored trousers will sure to see you stand out from the crowd this Autumn.

Our fourth best destination for jones+jones dresses in the UK we thought we’d give you a guide to a weekend away here!!
Straight off the train and craving some tasty food and light dinner drinks?! We’ve got the perfect place for you…Bar Soba! Its an exclusive chain of restaurants in Scotland that specialise in Pan-Asian street food. As if straight from the markets and noodle vendors of South-East Asia to your plate, you’ll experience the most authentic in Pan-Asian street food. The tantalizing tastes of Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, China and Japan, all make for one unforgettable dining experience. As if that wasn’t enough they have been speicialising in cocktails since 1999. Their highly skilled mixologists are constantly innovating to bring their customers, and their taste buds, something unique. You don’t even have to leave here to continue your night as every Friday they have resident DJ Harri who plays vibrant house music sure to suit everyone’s taste!!
Obviously you have to go some shopping and the best place to go in Glasgow is definitely Sauchiehall Street or Argyle Street. The shops seem to go on forever and there are always street performers to keep you entertained!! We couldn’t think of a better way to relax than go for afternoon tea after a hectic day of shopping and the perfect place is The Butterfly & Pig. Step back in time to a more genteel age. It’s conversation, afternoon teas and an array of utterly delicious home made cakes. Before the quaint old tradition of high tea is served, there’s a lunch (and all-day breakfast) menu for toasties and sandwiches, specials such as ploughman’s lunch and various ‘open sanners’. Tea for two is served in their infamous kitsch China tea sets, which we feel adds to the taste and enjoyment of the ancient brew. The Butterfly and the Pig Tearooms is a comfortable respite for the hoi polloi as well as the suited Glasgow business folks, but don’t take our word for it – pop in, share a cuppa with a nice slice of cake, and enjoy. Tea Room Delights include homemade soups, sandwiches, daily specials, a towering cake cabinet not to mention our fabulous afternoon teas and high tea.
It’s your last chance to let your hair down before you go back to work so we suggest going to Hummingbird. A fantasy escape over four floors, encompassing numerous bars, a restaurant and a unique club space, as well as a multitude of party pods and secret corners to discover. This is no ordinary bar/club/restaurant/pub/hang out…there’s so much for you to do!! It’s also a Royal Family favourite hotspot as Zara Phillips loves to hang out here when she’s in Glasgow!! With seven different rooms to choose from you’re sure to find something you like! Whether you want to spend the day singing away in the Glitter Room or chilling out in the Mezzanine you’re sure to have a great time!!
If you’re out in Glasgow this weekend tell us if you head to any of our recommended places OR what jones+jones item you will be wearing!!!

What a true princess she was! We love a good wedding and nothing more than routing through pictures of peoples dresses! It is the biggest part of the day after all!
Prince charles with Princess Diana on their wedding day, the 29th of July 1981. Dianas dress trimmed with hand made antique lace!
One of our absolute favs! The lady herself, our gorgeous kate moss getting wedded in her breath taking custom made john Galliano wedding dress. The dress showing a lot of skin because she can, finished with sheer panels covered in sparkles and long training lace!
Nicole Richie married the farther of her two children Joel Madden at her dads beverley hill estate in a stunning, reportedly custom-made gown by Marchesa that was designed for her in New York.

The beautiful Grace Kelly. Movie star and fashion icon, and princess. WOW! This dress is just breath taking and that veil. . . .

Keira knightly on her low key french wedding day, describe by Karl largerfeld himself as ‘perfect’. We agree she looks just splendid.
We love Gwen. And we love how she kept it real on her wedding. Staying true to her unique style, she opted for an unusual dip dye gown. Totally unique and gwen-ified!
Go on, we’ve shown you ours, who’s worn your favourite celeb wedding dress???
Have you heard of the great new singer/songwriter Lauren Aquilina? The 18 year old has a beautifully powerful voice and loves jones+jones. Her new music video is out now and guess what?! She is wearing not one but TWO jones+jones dresses in it! Her latest single is currently number 5 in the iTunes chart so you should definitely check it out! The fun loving young girl not only loves our dresses but is a massive fan of biscuits find out all about her below:
1. What jones+jones dress do you love the most?
I think ‘Vicky’ is my favourite! I have it in red and lilac.
2. Describe your style to us?
It’s pretty chilled on a day-to-day basis. You’ll often find me in high waist denim cut-offs and loose-cropped tees. However, for video shoots and photo shoots I love to wear really dramatic clothing that I maybe couldn’t get away with if I was just going to the shops! I really play on that.
3. Where do you enjoy wearing jones+jones the most?
I’ve worn jones+jones in two of my music videos now, which has been great. The dresses really flatter my body shape so I don’t feel self conscious in them at all. I’ve also worn a jones+jones dress to pretty much every party I’ve been to in the past year haha! They’ve kinda become my thing.
4. Where do you get inspiration for your music?
Mostly from my personal life, I think its really important that lyrics are honest and that that comes across in the song. I also sometimes overhear people’s conversations or take inspiration from my friends and family.
5. Have you always enjoyed dressing up?
I was never really into dresses when I was young; I think as I grew up and my body started to change I got more into it. There’s something amazing about walking into a room in a jones+jones dress and a pair of heels when people are used to seeing you in jeans and t-shirts.
6. We’ve heard you like biscuits, what’s your favourite one?
Chocolate bourbons! That’s another Aquilina thing. I’m literally obsessed. It’s bordering on ridiculous.
7. If you could have a tea party what dress would you wear from our collection and what biscuits would you supply?
Probably the ‘Alice Liberty Print’ dress – its so floral and summery! The colour is lovely too. I’d definitely want some shortbread involved, maybe some hobnobs, and obviously…bourbons!
She’s definitely one to watch not only for her music but her great choice in dresses!!
