OOTD: Dressing Up with Scarlett and Jo

July 11, 2014

I’ve been hoarding this beautiful Scarlett and Jo dress for a little over a month, and I finally had a chance to wear it and take pictures. I really love to “dress up” but rarely have the opportunity to do it, as I’ve said before on here, and yet I still can’t get as “in to” casual clothing as I can dress up clothing. Maybe it’s related to my childhood fashion memories? All of the memories I have attached to clothing were dress up clothes: A strawberry dress for a festival (it was damn adorable), a deep red velvet purse with a “pearl”-stringed handle (that I took to an Amy Grant Christmas concert), and so on. This dress reminds me of those.

When Scarlett and Jo first started being carried at Evans, some (I can’t remember if all) of their items had a smaller size range, but they’ve expanded their designs to carry the full size range that Evans offers. You may remember me wearing their dress here in a smaller size than I usually wear. It’s now available in the full size range.

I’m 5’4″, so this dress runs a little long on me. It hits about 2-3 inches under my knee. It has a layer under the skirt with some crinoline type of material that gives the dress that “prom style” shape. The top is a very soft stretchy material, and the elastic band brings in the waist but is not tight or restrictive. I could have easily sized down once and fit well into the dress.

I went with gold accessories, big gold posts that I got from ASOS and a twig ring from their Curve jewelry. You can check out this Scarlett and Jo dress here. I also really love these two pieces:

So what do you think of Scarlett and Jo’s designs? They left me feeling pretty happy…

    Oh my word, you look absolutely gorgeous in that dress. I’m also drawn to clothing with “dress-up” elements to them- sequins, embroidery, lush-feeling fabrics. Like you, I can only put it down to my childhood memories of dressing up. You look sensational.

    The dress looks beautiful on you. I love Scarlett and Jo. I ordered the skirt with the blue flowers. Can’t wait to try it on!

    Love it and I don´t think it´s disturbing that it runs a little longer on you. Actually, I like how it is very much. Beautiful childhood memory too. I hope settled into your new place already!

    Beautiful!!

    Oh, this is so lovely on you! I was captivated by this dress as soon as I saw it on the site. The poppy print is so vibrant and gorgeous! I don’t wear a lot of red, so it was a pass for me, but I’m so glad it was a winner for you! I received the Bardot dress in that pastel/neon photorealistic print. I love the fit and the poof of the skirt. I’m definitely hooked on Scarlett & Jo now, especially those new skirts where you can swap out different tops in different colors!
