Red & Gold

Sounds more like the title of a Christmas post doesn't it?

Words cannot describe how excited I have been to write this post! Jones+Jones have been one of my favourite dress companies for the longest time now, so I was completely over the moon when they said they would like to collaborate! 

I was even more excited when the most beautiful dress was delivered to my door. And if you need any more proof about how much I love it: it's red. And you know how I feel about red dresses.

The gorgeous Audrey Midi Dress is the most magnificent shade of scarlet you ever did see, accompanied by a full circle skirt and a lace top. It's the absolute perfect dress for any evening occasion, but because it's me I definitely wore it out shopping! 

As a girl on the shorter side, I often find it difficult to pull off midi dresses as they can sometimes drown me out, so I paired the dress with a pair of sparkling gold Lipsy heels that are my absolute favourites to add a touch of glamour to any outfit. I also pulled it all in at the waist with a thick brown belt to make the waist look smaller and to enhance the flare of the skirt. 

Unfortunately I don't own a proper petticoat of my own, so instead I added one of my own thicker skirts underneath to add more 'poof' (technical term). It worked wonders and made the dress feel even more princessey than it already did. I'd love a full, red petticoat to go underneath though!

Also, I'm not sure if this goes without saying, but this dress is absolutely perfect for twirling in (an essential feature of all dresses). 

It's so lovely to have a more vintage style dress in my wardrobe. As much as I love classic and modern clothing, it's always nice to try out a style from a different era. And of course, with the dress being named after the lovely Audrey Hepburn it only makes me fall in love with it even more! I felt like a true, every day Disney Princess in this dress and it will definitely become a staple part of my wardrobe from now on!
