Scarlett and Jo with She Might Be Loved

EDIT - While the quality of their clothes isn't in doubt, I cannot encourage anyone to buy from Scarlett & Jo or support their business for ethical reasons.

Yesterday I travelled to Evans in Meadowhall to a meet and greet with the lovely Georgina of She Might Be Loved with Scarlett & Jo. I thought it would be a great opportunity to meet some fellow plus size bloggers in person and ogle some gorgeous clothes, and I was right!

How awkward can I actually get? Apparently more awkward every day!

Scarlett & Jo had brought in most of their collection for the day and I fell totally in love with it. Gifi, the lovely creator of Scarlett & Jo really knows how to design for plus size women, and was a lovely fella to boot, it was a pleasure to get to meet him! He so cares about what he is creating, and is so passionate, which is wonderful.

Scarlett & Jo Teal Blue Fit & Flare Mini

I tried on so many pieces, why not when they are in the store! And quite honestly, I could have easily bought of all of these had I had the money. The fit of the dresses is just great, the material is such good quality and they are so lovely! I opted to buy the teal blue fit and flare mini dress. Scarlett & Jo had very kindly offered us 20% off on the day, even on the current sale prices, so it was a complete bargain at £20! The red rose prom dress is definitely next on my wishlist. The mesh sleeves are so different and fun, and I love the neckline. The feather tunic was shorter than I'd usually wear, but I felt so cute I didn't care. And that wrap dress, just wow. Also available in blue and mint green, it's just divine.

It is often mentioned how great the fit of Scarlett & Jo are for the busty lady, and as a plus size gal who doesn't have a sizeable chest, I have to say, Gifi has created pieces that really help give the illusion of a chest and help show off what you do have in the best way!

Babes!

Of course I couldn't resist selfies with the babes I met on the day!

With Kellyisablade (doesn't she remind you of Garcia from Criminal Minds? What a doll!)

With the incredible Leah of StyleXL. Just, wow, such a pleasure to meet her and see how passionate she is.

And with the adorable Siobhan of Rock n Roses.

I felt like a giant all day. Sometimes I forget that being 5ft 11 is kind of unusual!


I absolutely love this selfie of a bunch of us!


Evans had kindly made us up these fab goody bags. I adore Barry M as any of my readers will know, so was thrilled to see so much Barry M in there! I also love salt spray, so I'm excited to try this out.

A few of us popped for a drink afterwards, sadly I couldn't stay for the meal as I had an event to get to last night, but I wish I could have. It was such a fun day, and I am so glad I went. What a lovely bunch, and what lush clothes!

Much love,
Kitty xxxx

  2. The clothes look beautiful on you, and looks like you had a wonderful time. If I had lived closer I would have loved to have gone, being in the same venue as so many gorgeous plus size babes and getting to meet the perfect Georgina would have been wonderful! x
