Christmas Frockagogo With Scarlet and Jo

Gearing up for Christmas party season

As a fully paid up member of the "crazy about Christmas" club there is nothing I don't like about the run up to baby Jesus birthday. However if I had to pick one of my favorite elements it would undoubtedly be the need to buy ridiculously sparkly over the top clothes to wear at parties. Christmas celebrations as far as I'm concerned are the perfect excuse to indulge your inner diva and wear some seriously glam gear.
The first time I tried S and J
I first fell in love with Scarlet and Jo when I modeled for them at Plus North. The dress I wore for them remains my all time favorite item of clothing ever to have graced my chubby body and I long for the day I can own it (its never been on sale, I spoke to S snd J's designer at the Plus size awards the other night and apparently its the only one he ever made-sob)
So when Scarlet and Jo sent me another of their exquisite frocks I was very excited. 
Lacey Loveliness

Everything about this brand screams quality. From the lavender tissue paper and ribbon it arrives in to the finishing of each garment, hidden zips, luscious fabrics, if quality is your thang then this is most certainly the brand for you.
Perfect for after dark glamour

This Pink Lace prom dress ticks lots of my fashion boxes. Its classic 50's inspired shape remains one of my preferred silhouettes especially for partywear and I just love the overlay of black lace on top of the hot pink.
I as a rule avoid high round necks with short sleeves as it can make me look like a shelf of boob but because the lace features on the decolletage I don't feel it shortens me too much.
I dont usually go for this shape but the lace makes it work
Fab lace overlay
As I'm quickly coming to expect from Scarlet and Jo its all about the details. The zip at the back is perfectly fitted and looks gorgeous,the lace fabric is also really nice, stiff enough to make this feel like a proper prom dress but not scratchy.
ooh I love a hidden zip

I like the idea of the ribbon at the waist as I always like to define my waist but I did find the ribbon slightly rode up as you can see from these pictures, only a small niggle and more to do with the thickness of my middle I think.
Not sure why I look quite so "bitchface" here

As its absolutely freezing I've worn this with black tights and black wedges. My hand bag is from debenhams.My necklace was £6 from primark (they have some great accessories at the moment) 
Primarni Bling-keeping it real
I've put a sparkly shrug over the top which I also think looks really nice and is perfect for me to wear in the taxi and until I get to the party.
A sparkly shrug pulls this all together and will keep me warm until I arrive at the party
