Simply Stunning

I'm currently on the hunt for some amazing looks to feature in a creative and dark photo shoot in late October. I was hunting here, there and everywhere but I found some simply amazing pieces from one of my absolutely fave UK brands Simply Be.

For this creative shoot we are heading into the woods with more smoke bombs and creating something dark and gothic, and hopefully the results will be pure magic, but for styling, I'm looking for lace, dark tones and mostly maxi dresses, with a few exceptions. You can find my choices and more - see here.




Flowing kimono style sleeves, maxi length and that stunning split - I can't have found the ONE that fast, could I?  What I love most about this style is the knot front feature as it's perfect for curvy hourglass shapes and hugs you in all of the right places. The sleeve also adds that little bit of drama and I love absolutely everything about this. 


Babydoll Dress - $69.99

The 70's meets Victorian styling with this stunning lace insert baby doll. I can see some absolutely stunning images created with this dress. The sleeve flatters any arm shape and you can size down due to the babydoll shape. The intricate lace work pairs perfectly with the higher neckline and I'd wear this casually as well as shooting it as I love the styling in this image. 


This style may not be a maxi but the forest green shade and the flattering wrap style could work wonderfully for a forest/woodland shoot. I'm absolutely addicted to long sleeved wrap dresses and I've yet to find a great shade of green until now. Great for your bust and waist line - a wrap is a must!




Lastly I found the stunning Joanna Hope dress with a beaded bodice. This deep red wine shade with black beading will look amazing shot in the dark green of a forest and the beads will pop like jewels. I envision pairing this with long leather gloves, a gothic style blazer or even a lace floor length cape.

 All of these styles have got me inspired but which will I choose! I'm wanting every single one!
