Wednesday Wish List: JJ’s House & Giveaway Winner

I don’t know if you all remember that I hosted a dress giveaway last month with JJ’s House. JJ’s House is an online retailer that specializes in all of your special occasion needs from wedding and prom dresses to shoes to accessories. They have been a leading global retailer with a vast array of special occasion dresses since 2007. But they also have some pretty fabulous Fashion Dresses for every day wear.

So for today’s wish list, I am going to share with you some of my favorite dresses from JJ’s House that are not necessarily special occasion dresses. Although, I consider every day a special occasion, so why not dress the part! But first, the winner of my dress giveaway was kind enough to send me some photos of the dress she chose and how she has styled it.

Meet the gorgeous Helen from Spain! She has given me permission to share her photos here along with a review of her new dress.

This is Helen!

Isn’t she stunning in her new JJ’s House dress?
Helen’s pups wanted to be in on the action!

*Helen’s dress: Polyester Midi Dress in Dark Navy ($114.99).

Thank you, Helen!

Here is what Helen had to say about her new dress:

Well, the dress is FABULOUS! You can tell this is a high-quality dress. I know a little bit of sewing myself and they have done a great job creating this dress! it is sewn beautifully to look just like the picture (unlike dresses I tried from other sites). Also it fitted the measurements provided by JJ’s House. Obviously, I am way shorter than the model featured in the website but I like the height of the dress, I think it makes me look very classy. It is very comfortable and flattering. The fabric is more for autumn-spring-even winter than summer. I am very impressed and so were my husband AND my dogs that wanted to be part of the photos my husband helped me take! (The photos were taken with my phone so don´t expect a professional quality , please!) Well, I can now recommend JJ’s House as a great place to shop! This dress makes me feel special. Thank you again Shelbee and JJ’s House!!!

Ever since I have notified Helen that she was the winner of my giveaway, I have also developed quite an amazing email friendship with her! I am filled with so much gratitude to have had the chance to gotten to know her through our frequent email correspondence. She really is the kindest, sweetest woman! And this is just another reason that I love blogging so much! The fabulous, inspiring people that I get to meet. So thank you, Helen, for being such a special person!

  1. Oh my, this dress is gorgeous. And I love your dogs. Do they eat a lot? I would love to have one like this but we always had only small dogs.

    • Miri, isn’t Helen adorable in this gorgeous dress!? She will have to answer the question about her dogs though! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!


    • Thank you, Miri and Shelbee! Our dogs(Toni and Cati) are two eating machines and they are trying to ruin us financially but…they worth it, hehe! I just checked your blog, Miri, I love how you and Shelbee take both great photos, mine look so amateur of course but you can tell I look good in this gorgeous dress 😉

      • Helen, you are so adorable! And your photos are just fine! I brightened them a little bit in my photo editor just so we could see you a little better. But otherwise, they are great photos! Go back to the beginning of my blog and check out some photos…they are terrible…yours are way better than those first ones I was posting.


  2. Fantastic dress! I am so happy with my JJ House dress too! Fantastic service and quality!

  3. I love choice #5 in your boot selects. What a great pair!

  4. Hi Shelbee! 🙂 Thank you very much for you lovely post and kind words!!! I really enjoy talking to you and, of course, reading your blog! It´s so beautiful being able to communicate feelings and thoughts through a blog, with women that have different lives (and living in different continents!) but have many things in common, trying to have fun while confronting everyday life and its difficulties. I am very glad that you hosted the JJs House giveaway, because, not only did I win a fantastic dress (that I cannot stop wearing, hehe), but also got to know you! I enjoy reading other readers comments as well, although I am a bit shy get to comment on them 😉

    Hugs from Spain!

    P.S. Your pick No3 of printed dresses is so you, Shelbee!

    • Helen, I am so happy with the outcome of the JJ’s House collaboration, too! This is what makes blogging so special…the opportunities I have to meet amazing women like yourself from all around the world! And then to be able to nurture and grow friendships through the crazy technology that we have today. It is something that I never even would have anticipated could happen. I am also so happy that you are loving your new dress. It is so fabulous on you. And the fact that after only a month of following my blog, you know that the plaid dress is totally my style! I have been contemplating pushing that “buy” button on that dress since the moment I spotted it! Thanks so much for everything, my friend…for your support of my little blog space and for your friendship! And no need to be shy around here…it’s a judgement-free zone!

      Hugs right back to you from New York!


  5. Love these boot options! But, that dress is amazing with the buttons.

  6. The first silk, print dress is fabulous, and Helen looks fabulous! Also, the red booties have a different twist, something I’m always looking for.

    • Dawn, thanks so much for stopping by! Isn’t Helen the cutest?! And yes, those red boots are calling my name…especially since I have been on the hunt for some fabulous red boots. Who knows? Maybe I will make them mine. Have a fabulous day!


  7. Great wishlist, I really love the nautical blue dress. I need to work on my wishlist.
