Simply Be And Simply Yours SS12 Press Event

28 Nov

As I am still fairly new to this blogging malarkey I have a right to be amazed at all of these SS12 press events that happen at this time of year – and I am loving them!
Recently I was invited to Simply Yours and Simple Be’s event and with promises of breakfast and a manicure on top of browsing delicious undies, clothes and accessories I could not resist!
I met up with fellow bloggers Cheryl and Rosie and thanks to the gods of sat nav we found our way!
We were greeted at the shop like venue by a waiter offering us juices and smoothies – what a lovely start! We were then introduced to lovely ladies of Simply Be and Simply Yours, including the beautiful Charlotte who I have been conversing with over emails for some time now.
Waiters and waitresses kept coming round with tiny breakfast canapes and fruit salad sticks, the perfect accompaniment to the feast of glorious garments and scrummy shoes that the room contained. From talking with some of the SB and SY employees it is very apparent that they have a massive emphasis on the fact that clothing should express who you are, not hide your shape and size. They talked about how their active presence on their social networking sites means that they can really get a good idea of what is working for them and what isn’t, gauge reactions and desires and just keep on top of what the fans what, which I find really encouraging. A few interesting new ventures were mentioned to me which I am very excited about and hope all will be revealed soon!
But anyway, without further ado these were my favourite pieces from the collection – brave yourselves for bright colours, florals, old classics in new designs…

My favourite piece has to be this patriotic Gossard bra, perfect for next year’s Olympics:

It was a fabulous day and great to meet and re meet some fellow bloggers. We descended on a pub afterwards and then Naomi, Lauren, Mhairi and I descended upon Oxford Street with out Simply Be bags to see what the shops had to offer!

Check out these fabulous posts from hosts Simply Be and Simply Yours.

    Hi there! I was looking at the Simply Be website and it all looks lovely! But sadly I am in the US and don’t think I can get it here…BUT I am going to be in the UK for Christmas! In looking at their website I couldn’t find where to buy it. Could you possibly let me know where I can get Simply Be when I’m in the UK? I’m going to be in the South London area and would love some recommendations.

    I’ve been so inspired by your blog the last few months, I’ve put on some weight the last few years and don’t know how to dress my body now. But your posts have inspired me to dress my body right and be sexy!

    Thank you for that!

    OMG! The Union Jack/Roses bra and panties are literally the best things EVER! If I cannot get ahold of those in the US, I might just die (I’m a huge Anglophile). Gonna go figure out about getting those… By the way, do you know anything about what the fit of this brand is like? Of course, I know I must keep in mind that UK sizes are marked a little differently than US sizes, so I have to check that I would be getting the proper size if ordering from the UK…

    Ah, I see you posted the link to the US store above. Lo and behold, the bra and panties are in it! Yay! I am way too excited over these undies, but I just love the UK (and roses) so much. My mom is gonna kill me; I told her I was gonna stop spending money since I want to study abroad in London this fall… Anyway, I’m rambling… So, like I said, any suggestions/comments about the fit of this brand?
