Dancing Leopard Giveaway…

Dancing Leopard

If you like a little boho, to release your inner-hippie, a little colour and all round beautiful garments then you seriously need to check out Dancing Leopard... sold both online and at Bondi Beach Sunday Market.

All made in fairtrade conditions in beautiful, magical India, which in itself holds a special place in my heart (I long to return after travelling there in 2011 – my India experience can be read here ), each piece represents a whimsical bohemian beauty.  Silk, sheer, printed, tasseled, floaty

‘Many of the garments are centred around vintage sari material that’s sourced from the depths of old Delhi. So by venturing into the traditional markets and stalls that are hidden within the city we’re able to handpick beautiful patterns and ethnic silks for our hand-crafted pieces. These range from slinky Ibiza dresses and funky genie pant styles to flowing Maxi dresses, with each piece completely unique from the next. The only thing that stays the same is our mission: To create beautiful and versatile clothing that’s perfect for Balearic summers and sun-dappled festivals.’

Winter has hit Sydney, and although this means a pleasant 16 degrees (!) it’s still too chilly to get back into my bikini. However, here I style each piece in order to make them wearable during colder climes.  Great for Ibiza, making a statement at festivals and perfect for the beaches of Goa, but if you like to grunge it up a little and wear in the city, then why not add a pair of ripped skinnys, a trilby or a pair of chunky boots?

Take a little look below to see how I’ve styled each piece… (I apologise now for the selfies – I unfortunately don’t have a photographer boyfriend on hand to help me! – *position vacant, apply within – actually, don’t, this may attract all sorts of strangeness)

Now I’m not usually one for colour, but these fabrics have won me over…


Silk tassel wings!

Here I team this stunning silk peacock feather print kimono with an Urban Outfitters lace bandeau, American Apparel shiny high-waisted leggings and French Connection boots… party outfit.

This item below, to me is the most versatile out of the three, I’m not usually one for lots of colour. My colour palette usually extends to varying shades of grey. And I know, this isn’t a ‘colour.’  So the kimono certainly made a nice change but this – well I just love the girly florals toughened up with a bit of black, vintage and hardware.

AND, the lovely Dancing Leopard girls have offered to give one of these floral capes away!! You too can rock the boho look this season – whether it’s your summer in the UK, or your winter here in Australia. Wherever you are in the world, simply leave a comment at the end of this post and tell me what market in Australia you can find Dancing Leopard…

Now, as I mentioned before, I’m unable to wear a bikini right now but I do really like this and I’m able to wear it over jeans.  Being sheer it does look fab over a bikini on the beach, and straight on to a bar, but also pretty with a belt and bandeau teamed with jeans. I think I have a bit of a thing for tassels.  And this has them aplenty!

A little Friday treat…


I’ve been making some more bracelets (I currently have several for sale on eBay here) and as it’s my last lot for a while (the materials I use have become pretty scarce), it’s Friday and I have some fab followers on Twitter, I thought I’d celebrate by giving away two handmade bracelets pictured below and a handmade black & silver feather earring to one lucky Twitter follower picked at random.

Once I get to 600 followers I shall be picking a winner.

These are perfect additions to your festival outfits, and I for one can’t wait for the festival summer season to start.

Simply follow @Jonesloves on Twitter and tweet (copy & paste) the following…

Win A Metallic Must-Have…

Last month new online boutique, THREE FLOOR, was launched. The Hackney label has been featured in Nylon Magazine and is set to grace the pages of Vogue and UNMO early next year.
The edgy designs are unique, wearable and quirky, with asymmetric shapes, contrasting textures and tough tailoring.
THREE FLOOR state that ‘perfect styling is all about balance. It’s about being brave enough to express your own voice, match a mood to an outfit and own the trend.’

Each piece in the collection can be worn with other collection pieces for the brave, for those who aren’t afraid to make a statement. Each piece can also be used to add an interesting design element to your otherwise basic pieces, within your wardrobe.

A brand to watch out for in 2012, THREE FLOOR and Jones Loves have teamed up to give you lucky readers the chance to stay ahead of the style game and win a stunning piece from the collection. You can be wearing this beautiful metallic MEDALLIST sweater in time for the party season, before the brand hits the pages of Vogue.  We have THREE to give away!!

All you need to do is tell us what you would team this item with…

Would it work with leggings, or would it be the perfect addition to your midi skirt? A pair of sky-high heels and a Trilby, or over the top of a mini dress?

It’s completely up to you but leave your answer as a comment (top left), along with your email address (if you don’t have Twitter) OR tweet your answer (‘@jonesloves I’d wear the @3_Floor MEDALLIST jumper with…’).


If you’re on Twitter remember to follow Three Floor and Jones Loves too.

Good Luck!
