So remember the other day i mentioned I’ve been loving the 1940’s era lately and also watched a string of Rachel McAdams films? Well that inevitably included The Notebook. In my honest opinion one of the best films, ever. And it may not be what the cool kids are watching (i never did make it in to the cool gang,haha!) but to me it is just such a beautiful story! I can never watch that film enough! And plus Noah is well, perfect.LOL!
A couple of weeks ago Joe Browns contacted me and asked if i would like to try something out of their new range. I shopped at Joe Browns quite a lot a couple of years ago and then they fell off my radar for a while, so i jumped at the chance to try something out once again.
The dress i chose was Soaring The Sky Jersey Dress. As soon as i saw it it reminded me of Allie Hamilton’s in The Notebook in this scene :
You see? Beautiful huh?! (the dress that is … stop looking at Ryan now ladies 😉
The old school glam, vintage style with the red lip and the curled hair just add to the whole ambience of this beautiful outfit. She looks fab and the outfit was perfection.
And so this was my take on it.
I actually wore this for my birthday on Monday (before i fell down the stairs), i wore it all day out for coffees and then out with hubby. It is a lovely stretchy comfy material with lots of give and lots of comfort, but in my eyes, that doesn’t detract from the beauty of the dress! It was a complete pleasure to wear!
Dress and red vest underneath peeping through: Joe Browns
Cardi: River Island about 3 years ago
Shoes: New Look
I wanted to look a bit glam that day, being my birthday and all, so i added the pretty bow tights and the little red cardi for a ladylike vintage look.
I’m really looking forward to remixing this dress with some boots, socks and thick tights and a leather jacket, giving it an edgier look could be real fun! i think it will soon become a wardrobe staple for me, a dress i will definitely be going back to time and time again.
Have you ever shopped at Joe Browns? I love their funky alternative dresses and tunics, I love that they have a lot of different things to what is on the high street. I think i may be adding this and this to my Christmas list and leave Santa a note to say i’ve been extra good this year 😉
