Styling the Joe Browns Mix It Up tunic

Black Joe Browns Mix it up tunic

This particular style of tunic has been a welcome return in the Joe Brown’s catalogue for years and years. They change the colours and they change the fabrics slightly, but the style is the same, and I love it! I also own this tunic in dark red, but for this blog post, I thought I’d show you how I wore my black and grey one….

The Joe Browns Mix it Up dress is actually quite similar to the sort of clothes I make for Threads of a Fairytale, which is maybe why I’m drawn to it! It’s a patchwork of different fabrics and harmonising colours sewn together to make a tunic dress the perfect length to wear with leggings or skinny jeans when you don’t want your bum out! For this photo-shoot I’m wearing it with black fleece-lined thick leggings perfect for keeping me warm at this time of year!

I’m also wearing a pair of boots I bought from Amazon specifically for the trip away. This was actually a whole year ago when Chris and I stayed in Connecticut for a month and went exploring every weekend. These outfit photos were taken at Sleepy Hollow, which was really exciting as I’m a big fan of the film! Anyway, the boots are lined in faux fur and are pretty grippy in the snow and ice, so I do recommend them. However, if you’re thinking of purchasing a pair, I would advise you go up a size as the warm lining makes them very snug!

Styling the Joe Browns Mix it up dress

I bought this Mix It Up tunic dress so long ago, I can’t actually remember when! (It may actually be a second hand purchase from a charity shop) I like it because the materials are warm, and a bit stretchy, making it really comfortable to wear. But mainly, I’m always on the look-out for slightly unusual, quirky fashion, and this item from Joe Browns is perfect!

Styling a ruffled mini-skirt plus the value of a cardigan – Weekly Wardrobe
April 10, 2017
I’m pretty sure back in the day, we called them Ra-ra skirts, but to be honest, I was never fashionable enough to really know! Choosing an outfit that looks good, but is also suitable for climbing rocks is actually quite difficult and I’m not sure I entirely succeeded with this one, especially considering the wind! However I had thick enough wool leggings on for decency to not really be an issue, and sturdy enough boots to tackle the terrain so who cares about anything else really?…..

Styling a 1950’s inspired outfit with a modern twist

I do like the nineteen-fifties style fashions and would like to add a little more into my wardrobe, but for now, this is one of my favourite outfits of the style. These photos were actually taken on my birthday last year and I’ve resurfaced them to show you the outfit. If you like the 50’s era fashion, but can’t afford or find good quality vintage clothing from that decade, then putting together an outfit like this still has the right vibes, but is probably a bit more comfortable!….

Could The Greatest Showman film spark a circus fashion trend?
March 17, 2018
(Alternative title: Clowning about in the woods!) I became a little suspicious back in November when I had the chance to browse some well-known high-street shops in a city. I noticed that the stripe trend had turned vertical, and wider, like circus tents! And combined with ruffles, the effect of these details does point to the circus! It’s been known to happen before with a popular musical movie: Do you remember the 1920’s fashion trend of 2013 that well and truly kicked off after the success of The Great Gatsby? I for one am not complaining, I love everything about the circus, particularly the wonderful clothing!….
