Joanie clothing x Laura Ashley
Hello friends! Today I want to show you a dress I loved so much, that I got it in two different colours and prints! These are both from the Joanie clothing x Laura Ashley collection and I love them! Let’s chat!
Vintage Laura Ashley prints
Both of these dresses are part of the Joanie clothing x Laura Ashley and the silhouettes are based on vintage designs. They have covered buttons up the back (a beautiful design feature) and a square neckline. The waist sits on the waist and the dress is designed to be a fairly large fit, like an oversized smock. Also, both dresses are made from super soft cord, which is really cosy to wear. Perfect for autumn and winter!
As for the prints, these are vintage archive prints; the blue being a rose print and the green being a peacock print. Both are divine and completely unchanged!
How does it fit?
I read reviews of this dress and a lot of people commented it could be worn oversized, or you could size down to get a slightly slimmer fit. Since I’m a bit bigger, I wanted it to be a relaxed fit, but not oversized. So I sized down which is perfect! It’s comfortable and easy, and not too small in the arms, shoulders or bust, but it’s just a little more ‘shaped’.
These dresses were originally almost £90, so I was thrilled when the collection went half price as I bought SO many pieces from the collection. All the dresses in the collection are made from organic cotton and if I’m honest, it’s really hard to find cotton dresses for that price these days. So I really went for it and I got all the dresses I loved! Shop the collection here!
I figured these dresses would be really comfortable and easy dresses for the autumn / winter months and I love the fact that they are made of cord and really cosy. They can be worn with bare legs or tights and dressed up with a simple necklace or two and a cute clutch bag. It’s an easy but cute look!
I couldn’t decide which print I liked the best; I always love a floral print and these one is lovely and I love the vibrant blue. But I also loved the unusual peacock print and the shades of green. So I went for both! What do you think?
If you want to buy anything from the Joanie x Laura Ashley collection, I can’t recommend this dress enough, but I also have also made a video featuring lots of the dresses, so feel free to give it a watch and I also included info on if you should size up or down. I hope it’s of help! Thank you so much for reading.
