Simply Be Store Visit

A few weeks ago now I was contacted by Simply Be and asked if I wanted to visit the Manchester store and get a style consultation. Having been to the Manchester store before I was keen to go back so of course I said yes. So on Thursday me and the Mr went on a day trip to Manchester. I was greeted by Jax who was so lovely and picked lots of items out for me that I wouldn't have chosen myself. Jax told me most of the time she does a style consult the shopper has a special occasion in mind but as I didn't have anything in mind we went for a mix of everything. This is quite a picture heavy post but I wanted to show you everything I tried on.
I have been wanting this Alice & You daisy top forever but it's been out of stock for ages online but there was a few in store. They only had a 20 but luckily the fit was perfect.


This shirt was one that caught my eye online when it first went into the new in section. I tried the 22 and 24 on but the 22 was too small on the bust. If your busty size up but if not your normal size should be fine.


This is a tunic but you all know I'm a lover of short dresses so I decided to try it on on it's own. The Mr said I looked very innocent I think it worried him ! 


These next two dresses are the same Ax Paris swing dress, now I would never have tried these but Jax brought them in and actually I loved them. They are both a size 22 and fit me fine.



The next two are the same cut of dress but 2 prints. I actually thought that I would like the checked one the least but surprisingly it was my favourite. Again without Jax picking them out I would never have tried them on. These are a 16-18 and still have masses of room, so size down twice unless you want a super over sized look.

sorry for the blurry picture of this dress 
This maxi was a 22 with a good fit and it is lined too. It's a cute dress just not really to my tastes.


This tartan dress isn't one i would have chosen for myself but i wanted to give all the options a go, however this dress really isn't me although i could imagine many of you rocking it.


This beautiful maxi is from Ax Paris and is a size 24 as there is no stretch. I cannot put into words how beautiful it is, the material is super silky too.


The next dress was Jax and the Mr favourite dress but I wasn't sold on it. I'm wearing my usual size 22 here and it's a great fit so keep to your usual size.


This leopard swing dress caught my attention as I was going to the changing room. I really liked it but it had taken other things in that I loved more so this stayed in the shop.


This swing cami is amazing I went for a 24 and I love the loose fit. I have really trouble with these cami tops and this is the first one I've fallen in love with.


Lastly is this super lovely dress which sadly they only had in a size 24 which was way too big. But just look at it, the cut and print is exceptional.


I was given a £50 voucher to spend in store so that went towards my total as I did end up taking a few items home with me! I went home with the Ax Paris pink swing dress, Ax Paris maxi, Ax Paris swing cami, Alice & You daisy top and lip print shirt home with me so it was a very successful trip! I had the best time and it really was a fun experience, it was great fun to try on things that i wouldn't usually. So if you are looking for something for a special occasion or just fancy trying the whole shop on like me then head down to your local store and book a style consultation.
Thanks to Jax and Simply Be for a wonderful experience.
