“I received my denim Joyce dress today and I absolutely love it! I loved everything from the cute box, with the thank you card inside, topped off with a bomb dress made with quality fabric that [cinches] at my waist while exaggerating my hips... I am 100% satisfied and this dress is approved by me & my boo 😍”. 

Color Bombshell



PR specialist Kathryn L stunned in her head-to-toe Black-owned outfit on her Instagram. She styled her yellow Joyce dress with a PVC embellished, multicolored high heel from Lilly’s Kloset. Then, she added a vibrant pair of statement earrings to mimic the colors on the heel. The rich shades found in the dress and accessories is what makes the look work so well.

Clearly Chic
