OOTD/Review - Simply Be Blogger Takeover - Em's dress

Hi again lovelies!

My outfit post and review of Lauren's Simply Be blogger takeover dress is here.

Simply Be got together with three bloggers Laura, Em and Lauren and gave them free rein to design a dress each.

Now I'm going to show you Em's dress. Click on photos for larger images.

Em's peacock print dress is a heavyweight polyester/elastane mix which is cut and ruched to draw attention to a curvy body. It's a work of genius. It draws attention to my bust, belly and bum yet flatters them all amazingly - more so than you can see here. It really has to be seen on to be believed. When I put this dress on I couldn't stop staring at myself in the mirror. It makes my bum look fantastic! This style of dress is life-changing for me. There is ruching at the lower back to emphasise your bottom, and also across the stomach area to the side seams to accentuate the hips. It's the kind of dress which doesn't hide your figure - it accentuates it and draws the eye to all the right places. It's slightly longer than Lauren's dress (from my previous post) but only by a whisker. Again it has just above elbow length sleeves and a flattering ruched neckline. I'd have liked to see it be a little lower to show off some of my cleavage, but perhaps that's not such a good idea when the dress already makes such a feature of the rest of my body! A girl has to leave something to the imagination. This dress is so versatile - in summer I will wear it as I do today with leggings and bare arms. In winter I can imagine setting off its jewel colours with some bright 80 denier tights, throwing a biker jacket on and donning ankle boots.

Simply Be - please make this dress over and over in numerous prints and colours. It's a style I would love to come back to over and over again.

I would like to say I also loved Laura's dress but as I don't go to very many posh occasions I would get very little wear out of it. I hope there are plenty of glam ladies out there snapping it up.

What do you think of this dress?

Thanks for reading!
