Lunch with Jane & Marilyn

Glamorous fashion was on the menu at a sumptuous lunch in the glorious setting of Coworth Park in Ascot recently. Our lovely volunteer models sashayed between the tables showing Royal Enclosure ready outfits and we gave our top tips for dressing elegantly for special events.

Here are our edited highlights:

 We always think if you’re looking for guidelines for formal dressing, look no further than the queen – she’s spent her lifetime in formal clothes so she knows the rules!

 For example, you won’t see the queen wearing sandals with her hat, similarly you won’t see her with bare legs. If you’re wearing a hat it’s formal, and if you want to look polished you need to wear something on your legs (we’re big fans of fishnets as they are really light and comfortable) and shoes should really be court style.

 Never wear a hat just flat on your head – always at an angle,  and do make sure your hairstyle works your hat so it doesn’t look like the hat is an afterthought. If you have long hair, wear it up or back in a chignon, or at least tuck it behind your ears.

 Handbags should be ladylike; structured is best, and big enough to hold everything you’re going to need but small enough to be elegant.

 Keep jewellery minimal especially if you are wearing a statement hat.

 Fundamentally, think one statement piece and keep everything else simple and elegant,

 Stay glamorous

Jane & Marilyn Supports Fashion for Good’s Surrey Fashion Weekend

We’ll be bringing our grown up glamour to Surrey in November when we  support Fashion For Good’s uber stylish fashion weekend at the Brooklands Hotel in Weybridge, Surrey on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 November.

Fashion For Good, a Surrey-based community fund-raising initiative, is bringing together some of the hottest up and coming boutique designer collections, stylists and make-up artists under one roof.

There’s an evening  catwalk show on the Friday, and we will have our  Premiere and Silk Collections on display for fashionistas to peruse during a one-off shopping and pamper experience on the Saturday.

We’re delighted to be part of such a unique event that’s supporting worthwhile causes and we’re looking forward to welcoming ladies of all ages and helping them channel their inner Hollywood sirens with designs and tailoring to take them from work to play!

Fashion For Good helps people, who love fashion and beauty, to shop and pamper themselves whilst knowing that they’re helping to do some good in their local community at the same time. The initiative is working with The Community Foundation for Surrey to distribute the money raised to local causes, including Christopher’s Children’s Hospice, Your Sanctuary, The Oasis Childcare Centre, SAY-It’s Friday! and Happy Days.

Time for the Perfect LPD?

Sorry to mention but Christmas is nearly upon us! If the thought of what to wear for the festivities is vexing you may we suggest the perfect ‘little purple dress’?  Purple is one of the hot colours for A/W12 and has the added bonus of flattering most skin tones, as well as making you stand out in a crowd of black!

Our flattering Elizabeth and chic Audrey dresses – http://shop.janeandmarilyn.co.uk/elizabeth-83-p.asp & http://shop.janeandmarilyn.co.uk/audrey-33-p.asp – are both available in vibrant Violet lightweight wool,  and we can also produce Sophia, Grace and Jane in this colour too on request.

And if purple isn’t your thing, how about the other on trend colour for this season – green, as seen here shimmering in taffeta on our Peacock dress http://shop.janeandmarilyn.co.uk/peacock-140-p.asp.

We have these styles in stock in a range of sizes but there is also just time enough to create a dress for you before the party season starts.

Why not contact us for details of stock availability and delivery times for made to order pieces…

… and let’s make this most glamorous Christmas ever!

Anna Friel and a touch of La Dolce Vita

We were delighted to see the gorgeous Anna Friel spotted in our  Grace dress (http://shop.janeandmarilyn.co.uk/grace-432-p.asp) on the set of her latest film, “Pavement Psychiatrist.”

Endlessly versatile, the Grace dress, available in soft pearl grey or black, offers classic lines with its boat neckline, bracelet length sleeves and niped-in waist.  From the back, the dress gives plenty of va va voom with its heavily panelled, fluted skirt.   Made from 100% soft, lightweight wool, it’s fully lined in pure silk  in our signature lipstick red. 

And it’s clear that Anna is a fan of the dress too – ‘I feel like I’ve just come off the set of La Dolce Vita,’ she commented.

Stay glamorous like Anna X
