Wow, it’s really been a minute, my lovelies! It’s been such a busy time, but I have a lot in the works that I’m so excited to share with all of you. How has everyone been? Hanging in there? Sharing my disbelief that Thanksgiving is THIS WEEK?! Well, there’s no denying it now. The holidays are REALLY here.
You know what that means….it’s party dress time! And just in time, the amazing folks at Simply Be, a brand that I’ve long-loved, sent me a gorgeous party gown to review for my followers.
Simply Be has been a leader in the plus size fashion industry for years. Available in sizes 8-28, their size-inclusive, fit-focused styles are beloved by plus-size women who appreciate their thoughtful designs. If you’ve never shopped with Simply Be, I highly recommend them! (Read to the end for a coupon code!)
On a night out on the town with my honey, I slipped into the “By Night Sweetheart Lace Bardot Maxi Dress,” ($60.99) and it treated me sooo well. Its deep navy blue material is a thick scuba stretch knit, and the sleeves are a matching stretch lace. The details don’t stop there, Simply Be leveled up with the bardot neckline and a fishtail hem! Gorgeous!
The dress runs slightly large, depending on how you prefer your fit. I like to show my curves, so the size 14 worked perfectly for me.
To pull the outfit together, I chose to go with an old Hollywood vibe. The gown does a lot of the work to satisfy that theme, but I accessorized with a vintage mink shrug from my FAVE local DC business Fia’s Fabulous Finds, classic jewelry, gold pumps and a vintage clutch.
I can’t wait to wear this gown again! I received so many compliments, one woman said to me: “You look expensive!” Let me remind me you that this gown is only $60. It just goes to show that when you mix old with new, vintage with trendy, you can look absolutely fabulous without breaking the bank. And I am ALL about that.
