OOTD - Simply Be and Junarose

When I first saw the Ombre Fit and Flare dress on the Simply Be website I was rather excited for many reasons, the main one being the sleeves. These sleeves look long enough AND wide enough for my magnificent wingo-bings. SO I did my usual, put it in my shopping trolley and didn't actually buy it because that would necessitate me making a decision and I'm simply not good at that. Then I saw the hottest of all the hot things Danie Vanier wearing it over on her blog and my heart went all of a flutter once more.

So I did a buy at it. And here it is:
Dress: Simply Be
Boots: Simply Be
Tights: Primark
I seriously love this dress, the sleeves ARE spot on, the colours seem to really suit me (ginger tones and all) and the fact that it is fully (and well) lined just rocks my world.

Lipstick: Chanel Velvet Alure in La Favorite
Eyeshadow: Maybelline 24 hour tattoo in On and On
Necklace: Primark
I was also extremely lucky to be gifted this flaming beautiful Junarose coat by the delicious Hanna from The Wardrobe Challenge.
Coat Junarose
Dress: As above
Snood: Primark
Boots: As above
Bag: H&M 
The coat is so, so soft, warm, smart and it has TOGGLES - What more can a woman want from a coat?!? The gold detailing also makes it a bit biker jacket-y and we all know you can't go wrong there. Thank you ever so much Hanna and Junarose for this little beauty - It's made my Winter!

As you can see, I'm not holding my camera in these pictures. It is balanced on top of a spaghetti jar, on top of the fireplace...on a timer that doesn't entirely work... You'll be delighted to know that I am getting a tripod for Christmas. Sadly, the tripod doesn't come with a house that is long enough for pictures or a wall that isn't covered in crap (as evidenced below). Would it be wrong to rent a storage space purely for pictures.....,.?


  1. oooh you look gorgeous! fab dress, it is lovely on you, and a lined dress rocks my world too! well done on the gifted coat, toggles are a joy (I fiddle with them endlessly!) I love your wall of pictures btw x x x

    1. Thank you sweetpea! I have not one bare wall in my house. I daren't take any of it down because I think it's keeping the roof up....x

  2. You look so lovely sweetie - it's such a good look on you. You always remindme of a 60s pin up... gorgeous! x

    1. And you always remind me of a wonderful woman who never fails to make me blush :) xxx

    1. Isn't it though!?! I tried it on with heels too and it would be a very good "desk to bar" dress. I've never ever managed that so all round good purchase! x
