Ladies! If you have a black tie Christmas shindig this party season then look no further than Jarlo London!
I may be slightly biased as myself and founder Carly bonded over a glass of wine (or two) 5 years ago when I first started blogging. I’ve kept a close eye on the brand ever since and it truly does have the most beautiful occasion dresses also incredibly affordable.
I’m self-employed so sadly, I have no works Christmas party to go to. I did wear these dresses in Dubai. There are formal brunches and people tend to be more flashy in their evening ensembles. Unlike London, where Friday nights you are more likely to find me in Nike trainers and jeans.
Now be warned… I’m throwing quite a few shapes around in this blog post. I think it’s because I haven’t had the time nor the inclination to blog as much recently with my current separation situation and photography work. So I went into pose overload making up for lost time
If you’re not a blogger you should know that (most of us) take zillions of photos for each blog post we do and select the best ones, looking through and judging the snaps as we go. In this case, I didn’t bring a bag to use as a prop so looked like a soldier with my arms straight down by my side hence the ‘I’ve bumped my head and now I have a headache’ pose. Blogger secrets revealed!
The ME London hotel very kindly allowed us to photograph around the hotel. I’ve been before a few times including the restaurant STK London, The Marconi Lounge over fashion week and the Radio Rooftop Bar for Sunday funday. The marketing manager Mark insisted they do a very good brunch which is not hideously expensive, so I will definitely return for that. This girl loves a brunch!
The avant garde hotel was designed by architects Foster and Partners and the bars in the Marconi lounge have now become an instagram favourite. I have wanted to use the ME hotel as a backdrop for a while and these dresses couldn’t have been more perfect. The marketing director Mark gave us a brief tour and the reception is a sight to behold. The rooms are build around an internal pyramid (the reception) and the walls have a holographic display which you can lie on the sofas to watch. I tried to take a photo of the reception but you can’t get the true perspective unless you have a super wide-angle lens.
