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,

  1. I was reluctant to attend a prom night with friends, because I did not have something elegant and sexy to wear. Then, one my sister helped me to choose one of the best party wear dresses available at and placed the order quickly. I am extremely thankful to her, as he helped making my day.

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic? Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where s

The plus-size world of the vintage persuasions audibly exclaimed when Georgina Horne of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust , announced a range of fabulous dresses she had designed for  Lady Vintage London , called Lady Voluptuous . There are four styles in total with a variety of colours and patterns, and being a 50s bunny who practically lives in swing dresses, I immediately set eyes on the Cosette , particularly after seeing Lucia in it. WOW, right?! But there was another dress that was catching my eye.....enter, the Medusa. The Medusa is another 50s sensation, but a fitted design. I have been hoarding wiggle/ fitted dresses in one of my two wardrobes for a few months now and realised how much I loved my silhouette after wearing this 'out of comfort zone' dress. I'm naturally an incredibly curvy (I know many hate that term, but I know what I mean) woman, but I have often avoided dresses like this through fear of the VBO; but during my continued journey to self-love a

To Be Visible: Why Minorities Are Still Left Out In The Shade

Foreword: This post has been a few months in the making and I actually submitted this as a piece for a magazine; although it wasn't picked up, it was still a topic I very much wanted to discuss. It hadn't been talked about in so long so I wanted to bring it back to the forefront of everyone's mind, but then boom, suddenly everyone was talking and posting about it and I felt a little deflated. I thought about not posting any longer as I felt others would inevitably write the piece better, but then I thought "my opinion is just as valid as others", so here I am contributing my two-cents. Please note that this isn't attacking anyone, but I really think it's important to not be afraid of having uncomfortable conversations like this as it's the only way things will change. This also isn't going to read as a magazine article as I'm not a journalist and thus, do not wrote that way. It's not a style of writing I personally enjoy reading
