Sweet Like Chocolate - Simply Be Dress Review

Last week the lovely team at Simply Be offered to send me a dress... how exciting! I spent AGGGESS going through the website trying to decide what to get. I am at stage now where I love dresses but I want something a bit different. You'll know from previous posts that most of my dresses are bright, colourful, full of pattern and eye catching, so I thought I would go for something a bit different. That said, I couldn't bring myself to get a black dress so I choose this chocolately little number instead.

As you can see, I went for the big hair again. I don't know why but I am really loving that at the moment! I really need to find a way to get it bigger, probably learning how to plait nearer to my head as I am not very good at that at the moment.

I struggled to know what accessories to wear with this because lots of my shoes and all of my belts are black... in the end I decided it didnt matter. I went for beige shoes (Primark), a black belt and my trusted Lovely necklace from Primark.

I haven't worn anything from the Jeffrey and Paula range at Simply Be before, which is where I got this from so I ordered my normal size. It's a lovely thick jersey material which is really generous size, I could easily have sized down at least one size, maybe two! I am so glad I went for this dress for a bit of a change, it's a welcome addition to my wardrobe! It's currently £40 on the Simply Be website - http://www.simplybe.co.uk/shop/jeffrey-paula-jersey-print-dress/uc829/product/details/show.action?pdBoUid=9985

I wore it to a night out where I drank too much vodka and danced all night - it was comfy to wear all night & lots of people commented on the gorgeous colours in the dress.

On a slight side note, a few weeks ago Alibi health drinks sent me a crate of their drinks to try. I am not usually into health drinks like this but they're sparkling water in either Pomegranate or citrus flavour - they taste surprisingly nice. In one can you get most of your daily allowance of vitamins and minerals which is always a bonus. 

It might not be the aim they are going for, but after a night out one of these cans in the morning really sorts me out & fixes the fuzzy head I have caused by one too many lemonades the night before ;)

I was lucky enough to be gifted some items in this post and I am very grateful, but I am always open and honest in my reviews!


  1. The dress is lovely, and talking of lovely, I really like your necklace! :) x x

  2. I love the colors in this dress! The chartreuse with the chocolate brown looks so rich and lush! I also love simple shapes like this because you can play with belts and jackets and cardigans to create different looks.Your evening out sounds fun! We had company for the weekend who got sick on Tennessee BBQ, and we ended up staying in and watching movies. I was ready to go honky-tonking and have some vodka myself! lol
