Laura Byrnes California Joanie Dress in Black Ponte de Roma Knit

Availability: In stock

$120.00
The Laura Byrnes knitwear is designed to take you from work to event to date night with its sexy, modern takes on classic silhouettes. Made from the same heavy-weight knit fabric used in many high-end brands, the figure-loving Joanie dress has a rolled neckline, three-quarter sleeves, a back slit, and a back zip. With memory stretch, it will retain its shape and not stretch out, so order a size up if you'd like a looser fit or if you've got a larger bust. The feel is slightly more casual than the Marlene, with the same beautiful quality.

HOLY MACKEREL!Review by Tayva

It's hard to find the proper words to describe this dress. "Amazing" seems insufficient.

First of all, it feels like you're wearing pajamas. It's that comfortable. However, this dress is guaranteed to make you look like a bazillion bucks.

I wore it to an event and literally every person I passed complimented me on what I was wearing. Even the boys who like boys were like, "Dang!"

It clings where it needs to cling and is relaxed where it needs to be. The fabric is quite stretchy, however, it doesn't lose its shape at the end of the night.
I spilled powder makeup on this dress from a compact… it brushed right off. Other stuff I spilled on it (that happens when you're me) just seemed to bounce right off. I don't know what sort of magic stuff this is made of… but it's pretty amazing.
The belt is of good quality and definitely finishes the look (though I've worn it without, too).

Adhere to the size chart and fitting suggestions, they are right on (as are all the house brand clothes).

I must now run out and buy the other colors. I have to have them all. I am seriously in love with all the items I've purchased from PUG, but this one is the big winner of them all. (Posted on 12/5/2014)

This is probably my favorite PUG dress. It is even better than what I expected. It is sooo comfortable and flattering I wanna wear it every day. It fits like a glove and it's perfect for work or going out. I definitely recommend this dress to anyone who is considering buying it, you will not regret it. My measurements are 34/26.5/38 and I got the XS and it fits perfect, not too tight or loose :):) (Posted on 11/16/2014)

This is the best dress I own from PUG. It fits wonderfully, the fabric is a nice quality. I really love it!! I am a 36", 30", 44" and I ordered a L, it fits beautifully. I also have fairly large arms and often worry because I struggle getting a good fit for longer sleeves, but there are no issues! Love, love, love. (Posted on 3/14/2014)

Oh my goodness! Where to start ... I so love this dress! I feel like a million bucks when I wear it to work. I get so many compliments. If you're thinking of buying this dress, don't wait another minute! It's so flattering & so classy. It's appropriate for the office, but you could dress it up with the right accessories for a night out. Thank you for this gem! (Posted on 12/27/2013)

I bought the original Joanie dress in coral a few years back, and enjoyed it, but wished it could have been a few inches longer. Well, the Joanie dress is back and better than ever! I ordered the black, and though there was definitely a $30+ hike in price, it was warranted because the dress is now longer and the material is beautiful and thick and lush compared to the bengaline (which was nice, but this is much better). I ordered the XS as usual, and it fit like a dream! My measurements are 32B, 24 waist, and 33 hip for reference. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I have been eyeing this dress off for a while and am so happy I finally bought it. At approx 36-30-36 I ordered the medium and it fits perfectly. I love a three-quarter sleeve and the neckline sits beautifully with the hook-and-eyes at the neck. The fabric feels beautiful, I thought Burana was lovely but this tops it. This will be a wardrobe staple for me this (Australian) autumn and winter.

The only small issue is that the belt is a bit small given my waist is at the posted size. I am on the second-last hole which I always worry looks odd. I have plenty of belts from other dresses though so no big deal. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I loved the style of the first Joanie dress, but the fit wasn't quite right on me. The new Joanie is amazing! The fabric is great and it's perfect for work. I'm 34ish-27ish-38ish, and the Small fits perfectly...not too tight but fitted enough to be cute. I had to size up in the Marlene for my hips, but not in Joanie. I'm buying the navy version, and any other colors it ever comes out in. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I was so aprehensive about purchasing this dress. Its my first PUG outfit, my first from this website and for the price...without even trying it on...scared me. When i first took it out of the bag and felt the fabric I got nervous...then, i put it on and my mouth dropped. Im so excited. the dress makes me feel beautiful and feminine, sassy and confident. I cant wait to wear it out! i cant wait to buy more stuff. I never spend this much on clothing...but it was worth it! Im a 34D, 28 waist, 36 hips. I got the small and it fits perfect. it is pretty fitted, so go up a size if you like it loose. the description is perfect. you can take this dress from work to evening to an event. its sexy without being obvious...it screams confident siren! LOVE. (Posted on 12/4/2013)
