Hello favourite new dress, how lovely to meet you…
When I was asked to choose something to review from the new Autumn collection over at Joules, there was no question that it would be this beautiful Leila dress. I have had my eye on it ever since I received the new season brochure in the post weeks ago and have been lusting after it ever since! And it did not disappoint in the flesh. In fact, it was even more gorgeous than I had expected.
Nobody does floral dress patterns quite as well as Joules. Fact. And I love that it is so bright yet the colours still feel autumnal. It has a flattering scoop neck and pretty elasticated empire line. The dress comes just above my knee which is a perfect length on me for everyday wear. But it was the small details that really caught my eye like the pretty three quarter length bell sleeves and the button placket on the back. But best of all, it has pockets. Two of them! As somebody who is constantly misplacing her phone or being left in charge of Moshi Monsters that have been sneaked on to the school run, this is my idea of dress heaven. I understand that my love of pockets may be unusual *cough* but never underestimate the usefulness of pockets ladies!
I love love LOVE this dress. It fits like a glove and I think the small details like the lovely waistline and cute buttons (oh and the pockets) make it that little bit more special. It is also exceptionally well made as you might expect from Joules and it is more than worthy of the title of being my new favourite dress *happy sigh*
