On the 15th July, I attended the Zandra Rhodes for Simply Be launch. I won a competition on the Simply Be facebook page, which included an invitation to the event, a night in a hotel in London, and £150 to spend at Simply Be on an outfit to wear. I have never been to an event before, so was a bit nervous to begin with, but once I was there, I was made to feel welcome by the Simply Be team and soon relaxed! It was lovely to see Lauren, Naomi, Gemma and LaCara too!
The event was held at the stylish Paramount event space in Central London. The views were awesome....
We mooched about the rails, looking at the new collection, eating breakfast and chatting to Zandra Rhodes (which was a little bit surreal!)

The range is super pretty and feminine and looks great on all sizes. The drape of the fabric was lovely and the material was really good quality. Zandra Rhodes was lovely! She was wearing the most amazing pair of glittery trousers and red wedges with gemstones on them! (I wish I had got a photo)
It took me AGES to choose an outfit from the Simply Be website. I eventually chose this:I absolutely LOVE it! I can't wait to wear it in the autumn/winter with some black tights and boots. I also chose a Suzy Smith handbag with a big bow on the front. Very me!
After the event, I went to Selfridges with Naomi, Lauren and Amy. After a couple of bottles of coca cola at the pop up coke bar and some girly gossip, Lauren and I spent the day looking around the shops and filling our faces with chinese food. So, all in all, a PERFECT day!
Thank you so much Simply Be for inviting me. I had such a fabulous time!
