As you will recall from my previous post here, I was fortunate enough to attend the launch of Simply Be's new range in collaboration with Look Magazine. And I have been fortunate YET AGAIN (I'm a jammy mare me!) because in the post last week was this beautiful little number.
At the launch I fell in love with the print of the dress and I think we can all agree that I was right to do so!
I actually put a net skirt under the dress to add some extra fullness, however, the pleats give a lovely flare even without this. The waist nips in just at the right place (my favourite thing about Simply Be is that they really cater for my body shape), the sleeves have plenty of room and the neckline is just luuuurvely. The only thing I would change about the dress is the length. I wish it had been available in the tall range as ideally, I like a full skirt to fall mid calf. However, I am aware that I'm rather tall so this wouldn't be as much a problem for everyone.
I've accessorised for a wedding seeing as I have so many coming up this year. For someone who's never liked red, I really have a thing for red accessories!
Shoes: New Look (last year, similar here)
Fascinator: Debenhams (last year again! Similar here)
Thank you ever so much for the dress Look and a Simply Be, it's such a lovely piece and I can't wait to see it on some other ladies! The rest of the range is here - it really is fab.
Finally, I henna'd my hair again last night with a new recipe (I'm basically a hair chef nowadays) which included:
Lush caca rouge
Three tablespoons honey
Two tablespoons cinnamon
It gave it a lovely tone and my scalp feels mega (sexy right...?!?) I'd also tried to do my makeup like Christina Hendricks. I failed. Hence no facial vanity this time. Don't say I never give you a rest...
