Interesting Dress & #Passion For Fashion Link Up


 Happy Friday ladies
Now i don't know about you but i am a big dress lover, i have been leaning more towards trying jeans lately but ultimately my heart lays with dresses, especially when they are quirky and interesting dresses. Joe Browns never fail in my view, to create and provide cool interesting and funky clothes. Their dresses are quirky and different which is always so refreshing. I have shopped with Joe Browns for years and love each time when the new season products land. Wistful Waitcoat Dress is one of their new additions and is limited addition. I'm super happy about adding it to the dress collection. I had 3 compliments wearing this yesterday which was pretty awesome. Even my 10 year old step daughter who is tres cool, said it was a great dress. Tweenager approval is a rarity my friends..


 The dress has lots of lovely little details, bows, buttons and lacey bits.. its gorgeous! Plus the waistcoat style is very flattering with its cinched in look and also great for hiding my bloated lunch pasta tummy! oh yes... thats extra points in my book!!
 i love black and red at the moment so dressed it up with some booties and a red bag and an animal print belt. I can see me wearing this lots through winter with chunky oatmeal cardigans and tan boots, wistful waistcoat winter styley, haha!
For winter i totally have my eye on this beautiful coat.. isnt it such a gorgeous statement coat?! Love!!



Boots: Ebay
Bag & belt (old): Primark

  11. I do love the lovely details in this dress as well, as you say. it's amazing what an interesting little back cutout and neat buttons can do. although i must say a LBD is always great anyway. love that you contrasted it w/ those fun red boots!

  22. That LBD is so cute. I love it. It is detailed everywhere. I am in love with your booties AND the Coat you are eyeing. I am very much a Dresses Girl myself, though this year that I became a mom, I have worn them less often.
