OUTFIT: Discovering Joanie Clothing

As both a child and an adult I have always gravitated towards jeans more than dresses, I just feel way more comfortable in jeans and trousers and I'm one of these people who gets cold even in Summer so bottoms have just always suited me and my lifestyle more. Over this past year though I've really been enjoying wearing dresses, I've found a new love for them thanks to midi dresses, the style that I prefer over the rest. Midi dresses just sit really well when I'm in my powerchair, they don't get caught in my wheels but they aren't so short that I'm flashing everyone either. So, when I was introduced to Joanie Clothing, having been informed that they sell dresses with pockets, I knew I had to treat myself to something from them.

I picked up a couple of dresses initially but ended up keeping just one, I had no idea what size I'd be so only one of them actually fit me and luckily it was the dress that I liked the most. This is their Maurice Shirt Dress, a light denim colour dress with brown buttons all the way down and the cutest swallows on the collar. It also has 2 large pockets on the front, any dress without pockets will just be a disappointment from now on! For me it seemed like a great middle ground between my typical jeans and t-shirt style and a feminine dress.

I love the wooden buttons that go all the way down the dress and the dress itself is made out of a thicker material than expected, because it's a shirt dress you do get a bit of gapping between buttons in the boob area but the buttons are pretty close together so you don't really see anything other than material. It's sleeveless so with the weather getting colder I like to pop on a little Primark cardigan to keep my arms warm, and I'd probably have to start wearing tights with it soon as well but I'm determined that I'll be able to transition it into my Autumn wardrobe with ease!

I felt quite 50s in this outfit with my little cardigan and my plain white trainers and I'm definitely going to be treating myself to another dress from Joanie Clothing soon! The Maurice dress is currently half price, a bargain at just £20, so if it takes your fancy I'd grab it now whilst they have a couple of sizes left. In hindsight I should have done this post a little earlier so they had more sizes in stock, you can tell I'm not a fashion blogger!

I'm currently fundraising for a vital new powerchair as I'm becoming increasingly housebound due to how basic and unsuitable my current chair is, can you spare a few pounds to help? Donate here.


  1. Wow, I love that dress! You look so pretty. I can't believe it was only £20!
