JJ's Occasion Dress - Pink to make the boys wink!

Hi there lovelies, hope your week is going well.
What have you been up to?



A quiet weekend with a quieter week so far - sometimes it's nice to have some downtime don't you think?  Having had such a busy summer it's nice to relax & unwind a little.
Although no weekend breaks in the foreseeable future, for me there is a spate of birthdays in the next couple of months starting Friday! so I'll soon be a busy bee again!

We all attend weddings throughout the year and that means we always need a new outfit to wear (well I do!!). Catch when I wore my Jacques Vert pale blue lace dress back in August.


I was recently contacted by JJ's House asking if I'd like to pick an outfit from their extensive collection of wedding dresses, formal gowns, party dresses, mother of the bride dresses and prom outfits.
I had a super time musing over their huge collection and settled on this stunning fuchsia pink two piece. 
The website has so many different dresses that would be great for plenty of occasions.  I was spoilt for choice with not only styles, but colour options too!







I settled on this luxurious scoop neck column dress.  It has a knee length finish in a slightly stretchy taffeta material that gives such a flatteringly smooth finish.  The beads across the middle cumberbund give a polished & impressive feel to the dress, & who doesn't love a little bit of sparkle?
With over 15 colours to chose from it can prove to be rather daunting, however you can see the exact possibilities throughout the website - my fuchsia pink was spot on.



I chose a dress with a jacket,* I prefer to have a short bolero style jacket for a special occasion, it makes the look a whole lot more finished. This bolero has three quarter length sleeves with cute little turn ups portraying both elegance & sophistication, also a great cover-up for my upper arms. (until I've had a couple of drinks and then probably won't care!!)😂


The lace matches perfectly with the rest of the dress and has a boned detail within the bodice giving support were it's needed.

JJ's House have a sizing chart & short video, so you can be sure to order the right size.
I have to add I sized up as I was worried about the fit, when I received the dress I found it had, as previously stated, some stretch within it so my normal size would have fitted perfectly.

I'm very happy with the look and feel of the dress & jacket having earmarked it for a wedding next year!  Not mother of the bride I hasten to add!  It will be hanging in the wardrobe waiting to be worn. Love a bit of forward planning!!✔

Having often seen on line shops selling dresses like this I've always hesitated to go through with an order, but to have a dress of this quality for just under £120 - I'd be more than happy to purchase another outfit from JJ's House for a special event in the future.

I didn't see anyone winking at me when having these photos taken, I did however have a man comment how lovely the colour of my dress was! 😉


Photos care of Esther Ruby.  Thanks Hun. 💋

Hope you'll be stopping by on Monday - you won't want to miss the next issue of the 5Over50 challenge.

Have a super weekend people. x

Bye for now.

  1. Wow! Aren't you the lucky lady?! The detail on the ensemble is sheer beauty, all that pretty lace, cute cuffs and sparkly glass beading. And that Cumberland effect is probably a bit of a waist-clincher too. What a good price for something so detailed. Lucky, lucky you. You look amazing! Hugs, x.

  5. What a fabulous outfit this is Jacqui and the most stunning of colours on you too. I've seen you wear pink previously and it works so well with your hair and skin tone. This is a great number to stash away for a wedding - well done!

    Have a lovely week!
