Jameela Jamil for Simply Be

It's not very often that I go a little big gaga over a celebrity fashion range - too many play is safe and fail to enthuse the clothes with the celebrities character.  

The Jameela Jamil range from Simply Be does not fall into this category!  In fact, I don't think there is a single item in the range that I wouldn't snap up if money allowed. 

Unfortunately, I can only afford one - and it had to be the Ponte Midi Dress.

The dress makes me feel like a cross between Betty Page & Grace Kelly; it oozes sophisticated, lady-like elegance with a slight gothic vampiric feel.  

The Simply Be website describes it as Victorian Gothic and I suppose this is a little true with the sheer spotted fabric sleeves and neckline but the full swishing skirt feels a little more 50s.  

Midi length has always been a favourite of mine as I think it looks very graceful when paired with nude legs and a pair of high heels.  I suppose I'm lucky as at 5ft10, Midi tends to sit just perfectly on my mid-calves. 

The full skirt really does swish and sway as you walk - makes me want to pull some flamenco moves - and the full shape paired with a nipped in waist makes for a perfect hourglass!

The sheer neckline and sleeves are demure with a nod to the sensual and incredibly flattering for a larger bust. 

I feel the dress deserves red lipstick and heels - I mean, you need a special dress to wear with those red L. K. Bennett hooves!

  3. I love this on you! And I loved it on Sam. I am 5'8 so I am worried that it is going to be less of a flattering length on me. I might have to give it a try though. Gorgeous!
