I love finding brands and stores that just get you. Know what I mean? When you find somewhere that sells clothes you can see yourself in and it’s super hard not to just add the whole lot into your basket, whether virtual or physical. Joanie Clothing is one of those stores for me. They are inspired by vintage clothing and all their pieces have a retro vibe to them without looking like you’re just dressing up in your Nan’s clothes for a fancy dress party.
If you’re a regular reader you’ll know that I’ve mentioned Joanie on my blog a few times now, here and here, so you can imagine my excitement when they got in touch asking if I’d like to work with them. I obviously played it cool, who am I kidding, I jumped at the chance with all the gushiness of a teenage girl talking to her crush.
I choose a casual outfit and two dresses that can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion.
First up, that Brunch tshirt and a denim skirt. Hands down I have never owned or worn such a soft and comfy top. It feels like pajamas, which for some one that wishes they could wear jamas all the time, this is pretty special!
Next up – the comfiest dress I think I have ever worn AND it has pockets. It’s available in a few colours too, and there’s even a similar one with no spots.. which I’m so tempted by.
Last but definitely not least is this beauty. I’ve already worn it out to a party, a Christening and just in the day too. I love the flattering cut and those sleeves are just beautiful.
A huge thanks to Joanie Clothing for gifting me these clothes, for Robyn Swain and her photography skills and to the Harris Museum in Preston for letting us take photos in such a beautiful space. FYI I’m wearing size 10 in the dresses and skirt and S in the tshirt oh and I’m 5ft 2.
