Simply Be Review

Simply Be Review

I was super excited just before Christmas to be asked to pick a Simply Be outfit to review! With a £100 budget I had great fun exploring the site and filling up my virtual basket. After much deliberation I went with:

Simply Be Oriental Kimono Dress - £27

Simply Be Oriental Kimono Dress

I really love this dress! The print is pretty and I'm a big fan of the way the sleeves gather at the cuffs. I ordered a size up in this (24) which is something I usually do with tunic style dresses; I like a kind of 1980s slouch look to the tops after they've been cinched in at the waist. It works really well with this, and didn't impact too much on the length.

The fabric feels really nice on, and for £27 it's all around great value.


Double Breasted Emerald Jacket with Gold Button Detail - £44

Back in the PM - Pre-Marianna! - I used to have a similar jacket in a size 12 that I wore just about everywhere I could. So when I saw this on the website I knew I had to have it.

Again, this feels really good quality and - even though it was freezing out today - the fabric and lining are thick enough to be more than decorative. Talking of decoration though, I really like the detail on the gold buttons.

If you're a fan, the jacket is now on sale for just £31.


Pretty Secrets 1 Pack Black Supersoft Woolly Tights - £12

I needed a good pair of winter tights, and these seemed just the ticket. The on site reviews said that they came up large, so I ordered the Medium (16-20) even though I tend to buy bigger for comfort. This was definitely the right choice as the medium had plenty of room, but are still plenty warm and cozy.


Heavenly Soles Gold Fringe Shoes with Buckle - £13

I thought these were so cool! They've got a really 1960s vibe, and I figured they would make a great statement piece. Even better - unlike all the actual vintage 60s shoes I've ever owned - they're super comfortable. Anthony thinks the gold is a bit too much, but I'm very happy with them.

I haven't had chance to wear them out anywhere yet, but Marianna has made up for it!

Most of all, I'm really impressed with the value for money. I picked these items out to form a full item, but they're all pieces that can be worn again and again and styled in lots of different ways. With all the publicity these days about making more sustainable purchases this has great appeal.

I've no doubt I'm going to be getting lots of wear out of them!
