Even if you are not a fan of the show Mad Men, there is no mistaking the classic sex appeal of Joan’s character played by Christina Hendricks. Joan’s wardrobe is infamous for its curve hugging bold solid colors while maintaining a modest bust line perfect for the office. I could only dream to own them all as they are the true epitome of classic 60’s vintage. Inspired by Joan’s fabulous style, Glamour Bunny designed a dress truly embodying it’s muse. As soon as I saw previews of the Joan Dress in Royal Blue, I went straight to Rockabilliy Pinup to reserve mine!
Available in sizes XS to XL in Royal Blue, Red, and Black – MSRP £94.50
One thing is for certain, Glamour Bunny has very consistent sizing throughout their entire line. The Joan dress is now the fourth piece in my collection, all in size Medium. Although my hips fall in the Large size range, I have no trouble wearing the size Medium with ease. The Joan Dress features a modest boat-neck collar with a detachable bow (which I forgot to wear in the photos, sorry) and three quarter length sleeves. Designed to hug your curves, the material is made from a comfortable soft stretch cotton. At 5ft 4 inches tall, the skirt falls perfectly a few inches below the knee. The Royal Blue is even more breathtaking in person, sure to turn heads everywhere you go!
As most of you know, blogging is a personal pass time during my off hours but my day job is at the office where I wear most of my pretty dresses. The Joan is definitely work appropriate as it commands respect, while maintaining a classic elegance. The quality of the fabric perfect to conceal your favorite shapewear; I paired mine with the Rago 6201 High Waist Leg Shaper. Glamour Bunny is known for their high quality designs and fabulous fit for women with curves. Every piece I own fits like a glove right off the rack and requires zero alterations.
The classic elegance of the Joan dress requires very minimal accessories. Pair it with your favorite pumps and you’re done! If you choose not to wear the detachable bow, a vintage brooch would be a perfect touch to add timeless refinement like Joan on Mad Men.
I truly hope more vintage repro designers take inspiration from Joan’s character as her style is the epitome of sophistication of the era. Glamour Bunny never disappoints!
