Black Velvet

A few weeks ago Big Fat Betty posted on twitter that she had bought herself some cute new dresses one if which I'd bought myself just a few days earlier. We decided to bring you a joint post to show you the dress on 2 different shapes and styles. It turns out the lovely Leah also has this dress so now there is 3.

I picked this dress up at the Simply Be store in the white rose at Leeds, it was in the sale for £19 so I couldn't resist. 


This dress is one of those that makes you want to stroke it, the velvet is so soft. I really love the sheer panel at the top although I wish it was a little lower so there was a bit more cleavage on show. But for those of you who prefer to be more covered it's perfect.


This is a skater dress and the cut is really generous, I'm wearing a 20 but I think I could have worn a 18 and been comfortable. I love this dress it's really simple but with great detailing like the studs on the shoulders and the mesh panel. 


I went for a simple look with the dress no accessories and a messy top knot. I can't wait to see the dress on the other 2 lovely ladies.
Check out their posts and see how they styled the dress,
If you want to get your hands on this fabulous dress it's still available on the simply be website here.


  1. Love the stud detail on the sleeves!

    1. Me too I don't own much with studs I think this might be my 2nd piece xx

  2. It looks lovely on you and needs no adornment as the dress is special enough! I was too busy banging on about my leggings to mention the dress much at all, oops! x x

    1. Thanks leah ! Your leggings were very funky tho :) xx

  3. You look stunning! Love it xx
