I'm a winner

A few weeks ago i opened up my email on my phone expecting the usual sales emails, twitter notifications etc when one popped up from the lovely people of Simply Be letting me know that i had won a dress of my choice for entering my details at plus north. I didn't win anything on the day so i was really happy i headed straight over to the site to choose a dress. I'd already decided that i was going to get something that was a little different from my usual choices, i spotted the shoe print dress first and that was hard to step away from! But then i saw this dress and i new that was the one i was going to choose.

 

The dress is Anna Scholz for simply be and is £68, i ordered my usual size 22 and crossed my fingers that it would be a perfect fit. I'm pleased to say that it was i genuinely love the dress and the fit and its still very me without being similar to anything else in my wardrobe. It has lovely gold sequined swallows on each side which i really like and the material is a lovely too.
I wore the dress out to dinner with my husband as we were celebrating his all clear, for another 9 months, from his cancer check up. Yey happy face :) We went to our favourite restaurant for steak and had a lovely evening.

I wore my oversized headband and one of my many pairs of Irregular Choice shoes.

I really love this dress so thank you so much to plus north and simply be for giving me the chance to win :) I felt really great in it and would definitely recommend this if you need a fancy black dress that stands out from the usual ones.
What do you think to my winnings?
have you been lucky enough to win anything recently?
XOXO
