Now don’t get me wrong, I love the British high street and I’m certainly not immune to the odd rummage through the rails… in fact it’s a pretty regular occurrence. But I do have a bit of a gripe. Being the owner of a rather ample bosom and far from the size 8/10 that most stores seem to now label as medium (seriously?) it can be tough to find age-appropriate outfits that fit me really well. Which is why I whooped with joy when the lovely guys at SimplyBe got in contact asking if I’d like to run a competition to give one of my readers £500 worth of stuff. “Why yes, yes I would!” I replied with vigour!
SimplyBe are a leading high-street fashion retailer, based in the UK, that specialise in fashionable and flattering clothing for sizes 14-32. Each piece is designed with these sizes in mind – they’re not created as a size 6/8 and then scaled up – oh no if you’re a size 18 then a size 18 dress will be designed and cut to flatter your figure. I AM ECSTATIC.
They say, “Just as Rock n Roll Bride aims to promote ‘individuality and general awesomeness within a cookie cutter, pastel and often puke-worthy wedding world’, SimplyBe provides a unique take on women’s fashion catering almost exclusively to those often ignored by mainstream, high-street retailers. We provide awesome, on-trend and affordable fashion in larger sizes, allowing our customers to find their own look, feel fantastic and reach their full style potential as individuals.”
But that’s not all! SimplyBe have just launched a bridal boutique! From accessories to underwear and – thank the lord – actual wedding dresses, this collection is cute, stylish and super duper flattering.
SimplyBe would like to give one lucky lady £500 to spend on whatever they like from their online store! BOOM!
Entry is simple. Create a post on your own blog (you need to have your own to be eligible) and put together your own lookbook entitled ‘Rock Chic’ using items from SimplyBe and up to the value of £500. It doesn’t have to be bridal but it can be! In your post, link to each item you’ve chosen and let us know what inspired you and your choices.
When your post is live, simply link to it in a comment below this article and I will pick my favourite to win the booty!
You have until Midnight Thursday 20th December to publish your article and post it here. After that date, I’ll choose my favourite and the lovely guys at SimplyBe will be in contact with the winner via email.

And to get you started – obviously I couldn’t resist having a go too. I picked this outfit because… well, I would rock this look! I’m not totally sure the bag goes with the dress and Gareth would so roll his eyes when I walked downstairs in this… but I don’t care because I love it all!
Galactic Printed Cut Out Back Dress £55
Iron Fist Manslayer Bootie Wedge £79.99
Irregular Choice May Contain Nuts Bag £70
Black Enamel Clear Glass Stone 3 Star Headband £9
Sterling Silver Crystal-Set Ring £40
PS doing only one outfit was hard! Feel free to do as many as you like in your blog post as long as the whole lot doesn’t add up to more than £500.
This competition is only open to readers within the UK.
Good luck and happy styling!
