Simply (Be) Ready to Party!

Hi gang!

I don't know about you, but when I'm getting ready for a party, I'm not the greatest at making a decision on what to wear. There's always the worry of dressing too smart, too casual, looking out of place, or having the same outfit on as someone else! In my minds eye, I need at least a week to decide if something I have in my wardrobe will be sufficient, or whether I'll need to order something I think will be perfect.

Simply Be are one of my go-to places for such an occasion as there is always the option for a fast delivery, and there's always an array of items to choose from. When I saw this Short Sleeve Embroidered Mesh Dress, I thought "YESSSSS!" I had to have it, and was so pleased with the results:
 Dress: Simply Be, on sale for £59.50!
Shoes: Sole Dive (via Simply Be)
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market
I feel like I've spent my life in polka dots, and this dress has them, but in a much more subtile way. The mesh is great on my skin tone, and it has a 40's vintage vibe which delights me no end. I usually sigh when I see that a slip is included, mainly because it means it's attached to the dress; however, the slip is detachable so you can arrange yourself without bother and style the dress how you want. I love the slightly darker tones of the embroidery which brings a classic detail too. The sleeves are light and hits on the lower half of the upper arm, so if you're one who worries about that area, you needn't in this dress.
It's a very earthy dress, so I wanted something to contrast the earth tones when it came to footwear. These wide-fit, platform heels by Sole Diva were the perfect match. The colourful snakeskin adds the right amount of edge and the platform design really helps with comfort, particularly for someone like me who doesn't tend to stray far from ballet flats.

You can shop the range of party dresses here.

So here I am, ready to party.......just keep the red wine away from me, eh?!

'til next time!

Love and hugs,
