She’s looking fabulous in her Hannah gold dress

KYLIE what do you love about this dress?

I love how quirky and unique it is! The Jones + Jones signature itsy bitsy full skirt with the petticoat is incredibly flattering to the female shape…whatever shape.  I always find Jones + Jones dresses are incredibly well made and look more expensive than they actually are.  With this dress in particular I adore the gold and black lace - perfect for the party season.

What is your top styling tip for the AW season?

I really like contrast when it comes to the colder months and layering.  I will mix over-sized with ultra tight items.  For example I will wear a teeny weeny skirt and a mahoosive top and coat. contrasting fabrics are also fun (tweed and leather). Also its great to through in some colour into an outfit.  We tend to opt for black, grey and neutral shades, but oxblood, reds and purples are a huge trend this season.

What got you into blogging and what do you love about it?  

My profession is in digital marketing and when I decided to stay off work for 3 years to take care of my daughter and be a stay at home mum. I wanted to keep busy in the online world.  I treat it as part portfolio and part love and dedication.  It really does become and extension of you.  I love all the pretty clothes I get sent to wear (including Jones + Jones of course), I have been to some amazing events and met lots of wonderful like minded people.  Also it is starting to generate income.. there is nothing better than making money doing something you love.

Check out our gorgeous new AW12 collection!

Our luxurious new AW12 collection has now been launched online and we are so excited to share it with you! AW12 sees a mix of decadent styles, luxurious fabrics and detailing including gorgeous lace in a range of lavish AW12 tones from gold and silver to chocolates, black and cafe crème.

One of our favourite new dresses here at jones + jones HQ has to be the oh-so-gorgeous Laura Dress in Cafe Creme sequin. This indulgent new style features textured ribbons, which swirl over the sheer bodice of this party-perfect cap sleeved dress, while extra volume is added to the full and flirty box pleat skirt with the net-trimmed petticoat…

Best seller, the jones + jones Red Hot Prom Dress is back again for Autumn/Winter but this time in chic black! The dress has a fitted bodice that leads down to a nipped-in waist and is completed with an oh-so-feminine bow and a scoop back which allows a glimpse of shimmering skin. The perfect LBD!…

Also new to the website is the oh-so-sweet Vivienne Skirt! In a stunning floral lace and complete with waist bow and box pleats this skirt is ultra-feminine…

Mistletoe moments…

It’s Christmas party time and everything from the venue, the bar tab, the nibbles, the one we’ve had our eye on all year, how we’ll style our hair and most importantly what we’re going to wear is the talk of the office!…

We think if you can’t make a statement and show off your styling credentials at the Christmas party, then when can you? Party season is all about standing out from the crowd and showing off how gorgeous you are when you’re not restricted to office wear so take advantage of this!

This Christmas we will be wearing…
