Joe Browns Florian Cafe Dress

Joe Browns was founded in 1998. They sell original and casual clothing for both men and women which won’t be found on the high street.
Many of their designs incorporate a very vintage twist, cleverly combined with modern elements.
The styles change regularly to match the season. You may recall last year I did a poston a beautiful Autumn dress. I absolutely love my Basil dress but the season is changing and it’s time for something more Summery.
Joe Browns contacted me once again to see if I would like to try something from their new Summer range. As I love wearing dresses I chose this Florian Cafe Dress

The dress is apparently inspired by a beautiful cafe found in Florence. The colour is infact duck egg; which to me, appears to be a mixture of subtle blue and grey, with perhaps the tiniest tinge of green. The dress has an approx length of 90cms with a ruffle skirt which falls just above the knee. The floral pattern on the dress is what makes it stand out.

When I first put the dress on I wasn’t too sure if it was really my thing or whether it looked ok. It is certainly different to what I usually wear. This dress certainly enhances the bust and makes them look bigger; at least in my opinion. The skirt is floaty and ruffled and therefore great for hiding away those mummy tummies like mine.
The sizes seem really generous and large so do not be tempted to go a size bigger than your usual size in this dress as it will probably be too big.
I like the colour, again it’s totally different to what I usually wear. I usually go for black, white or pink so it’s nice to try out something different.

After wearing it a few times, I am starting to like it a bit more. It too has a slight vintage twist to it and I would also say a hippy edge. It sort of reminds me of the whole “Summer of Love” theme being floaty, ruffled and colourful.
At £29.95 I would say it is certainly worth the cost. It can be worn for a casual Summers day or dressed up with a few accessories for a special occasion.
