Project/D London for Simply Be

When I first heard Danni Minogue was collaborating on a range with Simply Be I was sceptical to what I might find. Turns out, I wasn't disappointed AT ALL. The collection of nine dresses, a shrug and two tunic tops is the brands first plus size collection. Danni's range received an incredible amount of press the first time around and it's great the designer is now branching into plus size fashion and what better way to collaborate than with Simply Be?

Myself and four other bloggers were asked to choose between the Liberty Dress and the Carnegie Strappy dress. I absolutely loved both. The Liberty dress is a gorgeous print of the New York skyline and the perfect summer evening dress, however I felt I could style the Carnegie a lot more. With my holiday coming up, this is going to be my go-to summer dress and is also perfect for the festival season. I opted for the white and added some really bright accessories and studded ankle boots.

I would suggest sizing up on this. Although there is an elasticated back the waist line is quite fitted due to the under skirt having no give at all. Although I love the dress bared legged, I do wish it was slightly longer. This falls just below my knees and I'm 5"8. I'm eager to try this as an evening dress too with wedges and blazer but to me if feels much more of a day dress and will definitely be coming on holiday with me!

  6. This is so fantastic. I looked at pairing the black version with a black leather jacket and it was a bit too much. I LOVE this though and think the stud-work and leather work really well with the Broderie Anglaise. As does the Neon. I love it. x.

    Love, Ylenia from Longuette
