Pretty Prints - a #PSOOTD from Scarlett & Jo at Evans featuring their 2 in 1 Floral Prom Dress

When Scarlett & Jo released their Spring Romance Collection for Evans earlier this year, I absolutely fell in love with this floral print prom dress. It's shape really ticked all of my vintage loving style points, whilst the design was perfect for my high waist and larger bust.

I was all set to buy it, but it quickly sold out in my size and I was left heart broken. Ever since, I've kept an eye open for it on blog sales and eBay and was over the moon to purchase it brand new with tags for a fraction of the price. The best things really are worth waiting for!

Dress: Scarlett & Jo at Evans
Flower in hair: Pearls & Swine
Leggings: F&F True
Necklace: Tatty Devine
Bracelet: Vintage
Shoes: Vintage

The dress was a size smaller than what I'd usually buy, but there was no way I was letting this beauty slip away! Luckily the top half is very stretchy, and the wide elasticated band at the waist really nips you in for an hourglass silhouette which is even further exaggerated by the attached underskirt and net petticoat.

Even though Winter is just around the corner, I fully intend to rock this Spring dream as much as I can, teaming it with tights, ankle boots and cardigans. It's one of those dresses which really walks the line between day and evening wear with ease. The fabric is cosy and comfy to wear, but the frou-frou nature of the skirt makes it feel equally dressy.

It took me a while to realise what the 2-in-1 nature of the 50s style prom dress was, but it's clever design allows you to embrace your inner Bardot and wear the dress in an off-the-shoulder fashion.

Whilst this particular design is no longer available, there is a similar Scarlett & Jo dress in the Evans sale here.

Until next time,

    1. I've completely fallen in love with them! This is my first one, but I doubt it'll be my last! :) They've actually got a few on sale on the Evans website at the moment if that helps. :) xx

  2. Lovely dress! Do you think it would work with a petticoat to give more of a 50's feel? Maybe a bright blue one to highlight the blue flowers?

    1. Hi Charli, I did actually hope to do just that, but the cut isn't enough of a circle skirt for it to not look too stretched. I think certainly it can be fluffed up a little further with some netting though. :) x
