Jones + jones Tamara Sequin Dress

Visit her blog here: http://candyflosscurlscupcakesandcouture.blogspot.co.uk

This dress is the perfect LBD investment! The sequins and net-trimmed petticoat make this dress really stand out in a crowd and is a definite head-turner! I also love the shape of this dress as it’s flattering for the majority (if not all body) shapes/sizes. It also features a pretty Peter Pan collar embellished with sequins which adds that extra sparkle, and saves you from splashing out on jewellery to fill in any space between the neckline of your dress.

What is your top styling tip for the AW season

 Layering – I love layering in AW as not only is it warm but chic too! My favourite colour in AW has to be ‘oxblood’ – there’s something warm and rich about this colour!

 How did you get into fashion blogging?

 I was inspired by the pages of ELLE UK…I’ve always loved writing and anything fashion/beauty related so I wanted to find a way I could channel by creativity and share it with others who have the same interests. That’s when (2 years ago) I discovered blogging and so many other girls who were sharing their chic style and inspiring blogs on the internet. It was like reading fashion magazines online, with pretty layouts, interesting content and incredible senses of style – the difference? All of these girls were ‘real people’, who either studied or had full-time jobs, but yet all shared the same passion for fashion.

 2 years later and I’ve a lovely following of readers/supporters and I’ve had so many amazing opportunities. Blogging is one of the best things that has ever happened to me!

what do you love about the dress?

I loved the dress the minute i saw it. The combination of the skirt with volume created by the petal, and the super- sleek neckline symmetric to the back is gorgeous. It seems perfect for a special night. It is very sexy and daring yet elegant. I like it in all colours, but I chose black because the color is very elegant and you can add a touch of color with accessories, for example red, but, because it’s Christmas time, in this case, I opted for the gold.

what is your top styling top for the aw12 season?

In my opinion the top trend for AW12 season are the maxi-necklaces. You can add a maxi-collar to any look and get new unique appearance.

 In day to day high street fashion we can see people wearing jeans, jackets, looks that are both basic and simple, but if you take notice, more and more people opt to enrich these look with these accessories.

why did you start your fashion blog and what do you love about blogging?

The fashion world is something that I really love, especially the streetstyle, because of that I started my blog one year ago. My blog talks about the way I dress every day and on special occasions. And because every day is different and we don’t feel the same, every day our clothing serves as an expression of what we feel or think. I have always felt that the way I dress makes me different and I wanted to share it with people. I have really gained from their comments and opinions.

 I like to follow and read blogs from all of the world to see how fashion is expressed elsewhere. Today the blogger phenomenon is growing and girls like me are able to express what fashion means to them and share it through our blogs.

As soon as I saw the dress it reminded me of Mila Kunis’ campaign for Miss Dior handbags, it looks so classic but is also cute. I wanted to try to copy the styling – especially the sweet little bow in her hair. The dress is so perfectly on trend, the fit and flare shape is still such a key look and is perfect for the festive party season.

I’m a big fan of vintage and styled the look with a little vintage croc-skin clutch bag and a pair of black shoe boots that were a hand-me-down from a friend. For this winter I can’t wait to get wrapped up in embellished coats like a Tsarina. The catwalks were full of gorgeous brocade and furs, which are perfect for keeping warm too. Think Anna Karenina.

Blogging seemed so natural to me, I love to write and share my experiences of the places I’ve been and the things I’ve seen. I’m also obsessed with taking photos, although I don’t claim to be the greatest photographer in the world! I don’t just solely focus on fashion, art and culture are just as important to me. Checking other people’s blogs can be such a great tool to find out what’s new and emerging before the big publication have a chance to print them

We love the LBD at jones + jones!

This Sunday celebrates legendary French Fashion Designer Coco Chanel’s 130th Birthday and here at jones + jones HQ we plan to pay homage to the Little Black Dress icon this weekend! The LBD was originally made popular in the 1920′s by Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel and has since gone on to become the epitome of fashion. Of course black dresses existed long before this time but until it wasn’t until Chanel introduced black as a fashion colour that it became popular (before this black was typically seen as a sign of mourning!) Chanel intended for the LBD to be versatile, long lasting and accessible to the widest possible audience; she believed any woman could wear one regardless of her social status or size!

Not only is a LBD flattering on all woman it can also take you from function to function whilst keeping you looking effortlessly chic! Here at jones + jones we stock a variety of LBD’s and we have one for all occasions. Our newest LBD is the oh-so-sophistacted Valerie dress, with luxurious couture lace, a scalloped hem, nipped in waist and fitted pencil skirt, this dress ensures a chic silhouette and is the perfect dress to take you from Autumnal days to evenings.

 

If the Valerie dress doesn’t take your fancy then why not try the gorgeous new Vivienne Dress…with a sweetheart bodice, a full and flirty skirt and a daring deep ‘V’ back this dress is perfect for the party season upon us!

We also have the stunning new Laura dress which features matt sequins, a sheer fitted bodice and cap sleeves. This dress has the perfect amount of glitz!

Coco Chanel once said: “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” Once you’ve found the perfect LBD for you, you’ll certainly feel both classy and fabulous! The jones + jones team plan to celebrate Chanel’s birthday in style and what better way to do so than wearing our favourite little black jones + jones dresses this weekend..

With love, jones + jones team x

Oh-so-chic, oh-so-easy to wear and oh-so-flattering, the Jones + Jones Abi dress is the perfect LBD for this spring/summer (and forever more to be honest!).

The LBD never dates and this one is perfect for the office with a blazer and some ballet pumps, but add some killer heels, et voilà a stunning look for after work cocktails!

Nothing says classy and sophisticated like a black dress and to illustrate our point here are some of our favourites from the past couple of weeks…

The stunning Gemma Arterton at the Mulberry A/W 2011 after-party

Now we know this isn’t strictly a LBD but it is a fabulous black dress with a beautiful ribbon waist band so we had to include it! Clémence Poésy looking very chic at the Mulberry A/W 2011 after-party

If you want to add a splash of colour or texture to a LBD then take inspiration from Claire Danes at a pre-Oscars party and add a statement necklace.
