I grew up with the Joe Browns catalogue. I have many a memory of sitting in the 6th form common room flicking through the pages and adding items to my Christmas list.
I admit, as time progressed, I kind of forgot about their existence. I stopped getting leaflets in the post and with so many retailers to choose from their website wasn't the first that sprang to mind when shopping online.
It was a surprise when they got in touch last week, asking if I'd like to take a look and pick a dress to feature on my blog. All those memories came flooding back, and although no longer my typical style I found myself coveting many a thing...I think it's the quirky cuts and slightly off-beat nature that won me over; just like it always used to.
(Not to mention they have a mega sale on right now, too).
Naturally I headed straight for the floral dresses.
I love my new dress! It's more...I don't know...I can't think of the right word. It's not the first thing I would pick in a shop, and yet something drew me to it. The colours, the shape, the fact it's cut and fits like a dream. The perfect "day off but don't want to wear jeans" kind of dress....baggy jeans induced comfort included.
Anyone else a Joe Browns fan? Do you have memories of the brand, and will you be giving them a second look now?
What stores hold memories for you?
Happy Monday guys,
back to work for me today!
P.S. Just had to share my weekend highlight!
