Decisions, decisions…



I’m honoured and excited this week to have been asked to present our big annual Breast Cancer Care show alongside colleagues Miceal and Chloe. It’s a three-hour show starting at 6pm on Friday 2nd October, and we hope to raise A LOT of money for this amazing charity. It’s been decided to make it a little less formal, dress-wise, this year, and with the fabulous Julien Macdonald launching his fashion range with us in October, I was given a choice of three of his pieces. I thought I’d give you a sneak peek at the range here, and let you know which one I think I’m going to wear!

In three dresses by Julien Macdonald

I dismissed the patterned one first, as I thought it a little more daytime. That left two, the raspberry with the gold detail at the neck, and the blue with the lace embellishment. I like both, but I thought the blue worked better with my body shape, and I adore the colour. So I think that’s the one I’m going to wear on the night. Now I just need to choose shoes and jewellery to go with it! Any suggestions? I’m wearing black shoes in all of these photos, but I’m not sure what colour to go with for the show, or whether to go for gold or silver jewellery. Any comments very welcome!

Thank you and I really hope you can tune in on Friday.

Have a great week!

    Hi Jackie I’m currently supporting a very close friend of mine who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Having not long had a masectomy and reconstruction surgery she now has to start chemotherapy today. To show my support for her and everyone else go8ng through this tough experience I’ve signed up with breast cancer care to do a sponsored head shave with a view to also donating the hair to help with wigs. It would be amazing if there was any chance to share this experience by doing it live at the studios on your breast cancer care show. Xxx

      Hi Sonia,
      That is an amazing thing to do, you are a fantastic friend. You could contact QVC directly (contact details on the website) to make that request but I think it would be too late to do this live on the show as it has been planned a long time in advance and is already packed full. But maybe you could email or tweet us some photos and we could show those on air? Good luck and I hope you raise lots of money for this amazing charity!

    The blue dress is stunning – hope you do choose that one. Black patent shoes would look fab with it and silver sparkly jewellery would finish off the ensemble perfectly. Unfortunately I will not be able to watch the show live as it is our wedding anniversary and will be out that evening. I am usually glued to the BCC show and try to purchase lots of things before they sell out! Hope you have an enjoyable and successful evening.

      Hi Bobbysgirl,
      I have a lovely pair of Peter Kaiser black patent shoes and indeed they are one of two pairs I am considering, great minds think alike! Have a wonderful anniversary and thanks for the kind wishes.

    Jackie, for shoes I think either a pair the same colour as the dress or a red pair, both
    would look nice. Black is rather harsh, and go for some gold jewellery, you will look lovely.

      Hi Nicole,
      I do have a pair of blue shoes so I will try them with it…didn’t think of red but I like that too, will have to have a shoe-trying session! Thanks!

    The blue dress is an excellent choice Jackie and you will look lovely for a very special evening! I would wear silver jewellery with the blue and I would choose silver evening strappy shoes! Hope you raise lots of money! Xxxx

      Thanks Joan, I hope we raise lots too!

    Great choice of dress. I have to agree the black shoes do look a little severe. Why not try some of Julien’s jewellery pieces. Azuni is beautiful in silver or gold tone. Or some of Simon’s statement bracelets. I am loving wearing my recent purchase of ear climbers. Have a wonderful evening.

      Thanks! Yes I adore my ear climbers too.

    Hi, I finally started getting your blogs by email! Have you got any navy shoes? I think it would look lovely with navy shoes and LR blue sandstone jewellery. x

    Hi Jackie, I have a cobalt blue dress and I wear silver jewellery with it. Hope you enjoy co-hosting the BCC show and that lots of money is made on the night. Found your blog on Japan very interesting. Such a different culture. Helen x

    The blue dress with light sparkly shoes and Diamonique jewels.

      Sounds lovely, thanks!

    Thanks for all the suggestions! The consensus definitely seems to be silver jewellery so I will ask our lovely jewellery dept to find me something gorgeous. And it will be either silver or blue shoes! Hope you all enjoy the show.
    Love Jackie x
