Dress - Jones + Jones | Shoes - Vivienne Westwood x Melissa | Clutch - Primark
My college prom / leavers' ball was last night, so I wore this amazing dress which was gifted to me by the wonderful Jones + Jones. Jones + Jones pride themselves on being a UK based brand which is inspired by the 40s and 50s but with a few modern twists, and for that they are by far one of my favourite brands for dresses! I adore the super flattering, extreme hourglass shape to many of their frocks, achieved by the use of full circle skirts with netting underneath for an added kick. For my prom I tried to continue the vintage feel of the dress, which is the Red Hot Prom Dress, by adding victory rolls to my hair and wearing a simple, bold red lip (Mac's Ruby Woo) and a pair of Vivienne Westwood x Melissa Lady Dragon shoes. I would absolutely 100% recommend Jones + Jones to anyone with an event such as a birthday party, prom or even just a night out where you want to look amazing coming up.
Unfortunately, Jones + Jones only stock their dresses in UK sizes 8-12, so at the moment they don't cater for plus size ladies or those who are size 6 or smaller (although I am usually a UK 6, but I found that this dress in an 8 was only a tiny bit loose around the wait and shoulders and on the whole fit well). However, if you are a size 8-12 then I think that Jones + Jones are a fantastic brand, and I would definitely buy from them in the future!
