The Joplin Dress was the very first Agnes & Dora dress that I tried!! Needless to say it was love at first try on!! Not only because I was able to get one in SOLID BLACK, but because it was amazing! I had worn the LuLaRoe Carly Dress and I had heard many say that the Joplin was just like the Carly. What I quickly learned was that this was not true at all. The Joplin Dress was the Carly 2.0!
So what made the Joplin Dress so amazing? First, is the woman that it is named after. If you’re new to the Agnes & Dora clothing line, you may not know that each of our beautifully designed dresses is named after inspiring women through out history. The Joplin is named after Janis Joplin, the Queen of Rock-n-roll. She was known for her tough persona and breaking the mold of what women’s roles were expected to look like. As a woman, in a male dominated industry, she fought what the standard version of femininity was. She paved the way for women to create their own versions off femininity.
The Joplin Dress embodies that individualism in every aspect. The modal/spandex fabric is heavenly! It’s so soft (think leggings soft) and has a little weight to it which makes the Joplin fall beautifully on every body shape. The handkerchief hemline is one of my favorite parts of the Joplin! Unlike the LuLaRoe Carly dress there is NO more tail behind you! This makes the length of the Joplin Dress work for those of us who are tall and those who aren’t. Plus, it’s perfect for twirling! I love the A-line styling and how it is tailored to create a feminine silhouette on every body shape. Pair all this with the Agnes & Dora sizing, that is consistent across the line, it makes the Joplin Dress the perfect go-to dress for any occasion.
Styling the Joplin Dress
I’m a pretty simple girl and I like my fashion options to be simple and easy. As a mom of 3, I have very little time to pick out accessories and make sure everything matches. So I love the versatility and ease of styling of the Joplin Dress! If I can quickly pair it with my favorite denim jacket and boots it’s a keeper in my book!
The same Joplin Dress simply styled two different ways. I love the way a simple thin belt cinches in the waist. It creates a beautiful waist line and accentuates the unique handkerchief hemline. Then switch it up and pair it with a short sleeve Wrap Top and you have a completely different look.
Everyone needs a Little Black Dress in their closet! Look at how easy it is to dress up a SOLID BLACK Joplin Dress (I can get black in every style at the Barn Life Boutique ) Add a statement necklace and your favorite ballet flats and your ready to take on the town. Or pair the Joplin with your favorite tennis shoes (I’d add a baseball cap) and your ready for running errands with the kids!
