Simply Be Blogger Takeover


Yesterday I was invited by the lovely Laura to the Simply Be blogger takeover preview.  I can't begin to tell you how excited I was, this was my first ever event and it was with one of my favourite brands! I was practically body popping when the email came through with the invite!
The event was for a preview of the new dresses that the gorgeous ladies (Laura, Emma and Lauren) had designed in collaboration with Simply Be, as well as a preview of the Autumn/Winter lines coming up.
When I heard that Simply Be had thrown themselves in with some of my favourite bloggers I knew that something special would happen... the dresses are superb.






When I first saw these on the Simply Be blog, I liked them but had reservations about some of them, but when seeing them on these ladies in person and feeling the fabrics, my mind changed again.  As was identified on the day, these dresses aren't going to be everyone's taste, but I defy you to not like one of them - whether it's the vibrant peacock print and tulip cut of Emma's dress or the funky, fresh ice cream print in neon shade of Lauren's.
For me, I love the effortless glam of Laura's coral and black chiffon dress. It's something that I'd wear on a night out with the girls with some kick ass heels and big hair, or with a blazer for dinner with my other half.  This dress is something that is going to be making it's way to my little post box when it's available online...
This is something that clearly the ladies and the team at Simply Be have poured their heart, soul, blood and tears into - the designs are amazing and the products have the quality for money that is usually associated with the brand.  Retailing at around £45 for the dress, on sale 14th June, I think these are excellent value for money, timeless and chic.





Throughout the day I decided I wanted to instagram as much as possible live, to give others who weren't there an insight into the day and almost feel like they were part of it.  Being on the outside looking in more than once or twice (despite threats of a naked protest outside a certain brand's head offices) I know how important it is to feel involved.  So here are some snaps of the sexy pieces in the new lines for Simply Be!





It was so interesting to hear how brands review trends and buy pieces, it gave a real view on the whole process both as a customer and a blogger. The team were also really interested in our views on their new lines, no boundaries - you don't ask a group of feisty plus size women for their opinion without expecting it full blast! But, the team were amazing - they took everything on board and they seemed to value our opinions.
All in all, it was a fantastic day, I loved meeting people for the first time, indulging in fashion, food and drink, and (of course) supporting our fellow bloggers on their big day.

Congratulations ladies, the dresses are stunning - we are all so proud of you!


Big thanks to Simply Be for hosting the event
