Hello lovelies, yes this is indeed my 2nd outfit post of the week. Hurrah! After finishing the Simply Be blogger takeover, each of us were given credit to spend at the shop. Naturally I bought both other dresses as well as another copy of my own (just because I could!). I wore Em‘s to an important work meeting, and Laura’s I wore for a work event – one in which I was able to go full nerd.

blinkbox are one of the companies I work for, and they celebrated getting Game of Thrones season 3 earlier than anyone by hosting a screening of the first episode and having Maisie Williams (Arya Stark aka BAMF) and Joe Dempsie (Gendry Waters) over for a Q&A session. I managed to wangle my way in and it was SO COOL. As well as being able to watch episode one again, although I did miss my pal Julia. My nerd levels were peaking all night!


Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get a picture with them – I actually left the same time as Maisie and her team, but they seemed like they were in a rush so I didn’t ask for one. Which is a shame as I wanted to ask her what Claire‘s cupcakes taste like! Haha.

      Yeah, I think they’re Irregular Choice. Gawd, I love their shit.

        Yeah they are. No wonder she said they were uncomfortable, those shoes are beautiful on the outside but a world of pain when worn, hahaha.

    I think I would have peed myself. TMI? Sorry, but it’s true.
    You looked gorgeous!

    Laura’s dress looks awesome on you! I love that Simply Be did the blogger takeover. It was an awesome way to represent some unique voices in plus size fashion, and I felt like you and Em especially did some really innovative things with the cuts and tailoring of your dresses. It’s awesome that you supported both Laura and Em by buying their fashions as well.

      Aww thank you Liz, that really means a lot! I genuinely loved all three creations, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself wearing them. It really was an incredible experience and I would jump at the chance to do it again, I loved it! xx

    I must admit that I was tempted to order your dress for simply be (yours was my favourite) but as a European I would have had to spend more than its uk or us price, so I ask you to please tell the simply be people that many Italians would shop at their website if the prices were the same as the original ones because we really have little choice for plus size fast fashion… Thanks and Laurs’s looks lovely too!
