This post is sponsored by Joanie. It’s a brand I’ve been a fan of since they launched back in 2016. Around the same time I started writing this blog. I like that they know what works for them and they do it very well. The range isn’t exhaustive, they stick with classic vintage style designs and are not afraid to repeat their popular pieces season after season. We can call it slow fashion as they don’t subscribe to having a new range every week.
The Joanie brand are inspired by vintage designs and aim to be as inclusive as possible. You could be a size 8 or 18 and still look good in their gear and the prices are really reasonable too. This Black Friday you can get an even better deal with 40% off EVERYTHING on the site from 23rd Nov until Dec 2nd.
I’ve always been a fan of a slogan sweater. I think I can trace that back to the knock off ‘Choose Life’ or ‘Frankie Says Relax’ T Shirts my mum got me at Farnborough Market. Joanie do a great range. My favourite has to be the Abbey Road jumper. Possibly because I worked at EMI Records for 15 years so I feel a kinship with those studios. I once went to a ‘long service’ dinner for work when I had been there for 10 years. The lady sitting next to me had served 40 YEARS working at Abbey Road! Oh, the tales she could tell.

JOANIE SWEATSHIRTS & T SHIRTS
The Joanie sweatshirts have great literary stance, they make you feel clever even if you last read Jane Eyre for your GCSE and the closest you’ve got to Bronte recently is to watch the Timothee Chalamet in the latest Little Women film. But better than that, they are SUPER soft. I tend to size up as I like my sweats oversized. I’m wearing a large here, but in general they are true to size.

JOANIE SKIRTS, BLOUSES
Joanie don’t do trousers. Maybe that’s because vintage ladies never really wore them. but they do do a few cool skirts and blouses. With my new found love for a mini skirt, my favourite is the button front denim skirt. It has a cute scallop hem and also comes in black.
Yes, you’d be right in thinking ‘that photo wasn’t taken recently’. It was from the summer but with a good cardi or a thermal vest, you could wear this one all year around. Joanie even have a section on the site that is specifically ‘Dresses With Pockets’. I wish every company did this as we all know dresses deserve pockets.
Don’t forget you can get 40% off until Dec 2nd.
