It’s not all work and no play at jones + jones…

With the Diamond Jubilee now upon us and London hosting the 2012 Olympics this summer we are feeling very patriotic here at jones + jones HQ!

To celebrate all things beautifully British two members of the jones + jones team were treated to a fabulous Champagne Afternoon Tea at The Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge and as they enjoyed it so much we decided to offer you the chance to win the same fabulous experience for you and a friend plus a jones + jones dress of your choice to make sure you look oh-so-stylish for tea! Or if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, the winner will be able to choose between the Afternoon Tea experience + dress or £150.00 worth of jones + jones credit to treat themselves to a gorgeous new summer wardrobe from our website!

Check out the jones + jones ladies, Shadie and Emily’s, account of the day…

 

 

We dined in the stylish Caramel Room, a relaxed and friendly setting, perfect for chic fashionistas who wish to sample the mouth-watering delights of the pret-a-portea menu. The Berkeley base their afternoon tea on current themes and colours of the fashion world and the menu is transformed every six months to follow the changing seasons in fashion…

 

 

Service was excellent and as soon as we arrived, we were greeted by Carlos, our friendly waiter for the afternoon who brought a glass of champagne to our table and went through the menu in great detail explaining exactly which designer each cake and biscuit we were about to receive was inspired by. To start with, a plate of sandwiches and rolls was brought over in an assortment of scrumptious flavours including Coronation chicken, egg mayonnaise, cucumber and tuna…

 

 

This was followed shortly by the famous three-tier cake stand which looks even more delicious in real life than it does in photos! The lower plate was savory based and featured taster spoons and canapés of savory delights including chilli beef and salmon covered in poppy seeds. The next two plates were the main attractions and featured a selection of gorgeous cakes and biscuits which looked too good to eat. Each and every one was truly delicious but some of our favourites included the Dolce & Gabbana blueberry sponge cake in the shape of a bag, the Miu Miu vanilla bikini biscuit and the Jason Wu cherry bavarois and coconut cream mouse topped with a skirt and biscuit heel…

 

 

The treats were washed down with a tea of your choice, we went for the posh pomelo & melon and the wild blossom and berries – both were delightful. All teas are served on fine-bone china designed by British designer Paul Smith which adds to the glamour of the experience…

 

 

Cakes and biscuits are unlimited so feel free to ask for another plate so you can sample all the flavours, any cakes you cannot finish are given to you at the end in a pret-a-portea box to take home and enjoy!…

 

 

And to make sure we looked super stylish for the day we wore items from the jones + jones S/S 2012 collection including the oh-so-pretty Audrey dress in black and the striking red rose Anastasia Blazer teamed with luxurious leather bags available now in our Saint Tropez boutique!…

Rock chic or sophisticated fashionista? Two looks, one dress!

The beauty of living in the current fashion world is that you can style yourself to achieve different looks very easily . You can achieve both rock chic and sophisticated fashionista looks with the same dress!

Presenting the Jones + Jones pleated lace Air Dress, available in cream and black. Feminine but chic, it flatters all shapes, and pleats plus lace make it perfect to be on trend for S/S 2011. It can be styled indie, girlie or dressy but we thought we’d suggest two on-trend weekend looks if you’re thinking of heading out tonight…

For a rock chic look, think sexy attitude and a hard-edged femininity – go for leather, animal print and tousled bed-head hair.

The Jones + Jones Air dress in cream lace + the classic black leather biker jacket by Topshop Boutique + The Ally Shoe Boots in taupe snakeskin by Topshop = perfect Rock ChicÂ

The sophisticated fashionista look is forward-thinking. Take inspiration from vintage looks but style them in-line with the seasons trends. The look is edgy and well groomed without looking OTT.

The Jones + Jones Air Dress in black lace + the Ivory Seventies Inspired Blazer by Topshop (make sure you roll up the sleeves slightly and add a statement cuff) + the Panthea Stitch Shoe Boots in black by Topshop = glam, sophisticated Fashionista!

Find all of these gorgeous wardrobe must-haves at Topshop.com including the Jones + Jones Air Dress in cream lace and black lace. The Air Dress is also available in our Topshop concessions and on our website!
