Joe Browns Japanese Blossom Dress Review…

What would be my perfect style of clothing? Something Unique? Vintage? or Modern? Perhaps a mixture of all three? I am not sure, I seem to change my mind daily! Certainly, I love shoes and dresses. If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know I like floral or polka dot designs.

It was a pleasure then, to be asked by Joe Browns last week if I would like to review something from their website. I often browse the website as their clothes are right up my street. Modern clothing with a vintage twist and lots and lots of floral designs. Result.

After a busy weekend painting, building a trampoline and gardening I was exhausted. After the school run on Monday, I fitted in a quick run and spinning class. Treated myself to a nice long shower, then I decided to have some me time and have a day of dressing up (At least until the kids were due to be picked up!).

I picked this Japanese blossom dress. I loved the style and pattern and thought it would be ideal for the summer season. When it arrived it looked amazing, even better than I imagined. I couldn’t wait to try it on.

The dress is really good quality, looks beautiful, fits great and makes you feel really confident when wearing it. I love this dress…

About the Japanese blossom dress:

  • Classic 50s inspired dress.
  • Halter-neck.
  • With net trimmed underskirt.
  • Striking cherry blossom print.
  • Secret zip.
  • Perfect for summer.
  • Body: 97% Cotton, 3% Elastane. 
  • Lining: 100% Cotton. 
  • Trims: 100% Polyester
  • Approx Length: 90cm
  • 40 degrees machine wash
  • Available in pink or black and white.
  • £54.99

I cannot wait to go on my holidays now to show it off. I just need somewhere fabulous to wear it. Perfect for a wedding, celebration, night out, summer garden party (or just walking around your home pretending your Carrie Bradshaw like me!!)

I would like to say a big thank you to Joe Browns for gifting me the dress and my 11-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter for taking these beautiful pictures for me.

      I spotted a black and white dress in M&S (I know, not exactly cutting-edge, but I do like some of their stuff) the other day. It had a black net trim also, and I nearly bought it just for that. Reminds me of some of the Collectif frocks.

    That floral hot pink dress is gorgeous on you. It is a stunning dress with a retro feel. Love the black tulle under-skirt. The black pumps were a great pair to choose for it. =)
