So, like everyone else I have LOADS of shopping to do at the moment. With work - I have very little time socially so when I do head out, I want to look and feel amazing; ESPECIALLY on days with Mr. Darcy... I want to FEEL like a princess. YAY for Simply Be! Someone from the team invited me to try one of their dresses for Christmas and I decided to go for this amazing Ruby Rocks number (currently on sale!).
The fabric on this dress is lush and soft, I love the balloon sleeves (with a banded wrist) and the opening at the front is a cute, interesting feature. The shape in this dress comes purely from the cut with the back of the garment having a slight elastic banding at the waist, that allows for movement and also stretch - I really like this roominess in it.
Apart from looking cool in hot dresses, one of my favourite things about Christmas is window displays... And I'm not talking posh "Harrods style" ones, but rather the interesting ones full of gift ideas and hidden treats...
I seriously love them. As I count down the days to Christmas - I have just THREE days off before the big day. Whirlwindy! How is your Christmas shopping going? HA! I bet some of you were done months ago!
As for me, on my days off - there will be some shopping done... BUT those days will also be combined with "Date Nights" - so I want to look and (most importantly) feel like a million bucks. I may not be going to many parties this Christmas Season - but thanks to Simply Be, this is my first Ruby Rocks Dress and I certainly feel like a million bucks!
Oh, and one of my absolute other FAVOURITE things about one of the stores I went into last week? Complimentary MACAROONS at the till. SERIOUSLY. I went for pink! Nommy.
