my new favourite thing.

PhotobucketPhotobucket
This lovely F&F velvet maxi dress is my new favourite thing, which was kindly sent to me by Clothing at Tesco. I just adore it, the length is so perfect, the neckline and long sleeves are lovely, and I think that the overall shape of the dress really accentuates my figure. Last night I simply teamed it with my favourite lipstick, charity shop belt, black wedges, car boot sale scarf and my lovely Asos knitted turban. In return for accepting this piece, Clothing at Tesco asked if I could then 'post it on' to another blogger, allowing them to pick anything they'd like from the Clothing at Tesco range. The lovely lady I choose is Fi from Save Our Shoes, I can't wait to see what she picks! I wore this ensemble to the Yummy Hair event last night, after Kristabel invited me as her plus one. I had the most wonderful evening, consisting of drinking champagne and eating canap├ęs in a private capsule on the London Eye, a ride in a hummer limo to a bar, and free cocktails and food all night! I may post some of the photographs from the evening on my new 'Jazzabelle's Diary' Facebook page, I was really unsure of creating one at first, but it will allow me to post more photographs and links without spamming you and my blog. Love, Jazzabelle.

  6. ermmmm...OMG! You look so beautiful Jazz! I'm so used to seeing you in oversized jumpers, this is such a gorgeous change! I just can't express how much I love this on you! I'm so glad you had a good time last night, very sad I couldn't come and meet you again but we will see each other soon for sure! xx

  7. You look really pretty here! I have a similar black velvet dress, but unfortunately not as fitted. I need to put some darts in the back of it.. And you also have a teeny waist! I like that belt. All my favourite belts are charity shopped...
    Thank you for your sweet comment. It's fine, and I've love to see you make a pair of scissors some time in the future - I definitely think of the scissors project as having longevity over a period of time. And thank yo also for your suggestion. I actually saw the Ballet Russes exhibition a week before my surgery, as we were down in London to see the consultant. It's incredible! I was so inspired, and definitely want to give it a second visit once I'm better. A lovely friend also bought me the ballet russes book, which I would definitely recommend investing in!
