Simply Be Dress Challenge!

I was recently contacted in regards to taking part in a competition being run by Simply Be to style their dress for an occasion of your choice, I went with the special occasion as it can mean many things like an anniversary, party or date. I decided I would wear this dress for a party like for a 21st birthday as it is quite formal but still great for that party vibe! I found the dress to be flattering for my figure and make me look a lot slimmer in those areas I normally struggle with. The length was perfect for me, being short longer dresses normally make me look tiny but it looked great, and the style of the dress just fit my body perfectly, and has the floaty style dress that I love when dancing and enjoying a party! I styled up the dress with my highest heels, although they would probably kill at a party they are wedges so easy to walk in and are a statement in themselves, and being a shortie it gives me those extra inches that I need! I chose just to go simple with a heart necklace as the dress itself has some sequins on the sleeve of the dress which is a statement in itself. I went for a smoky eye look as it is quite exaggerated and looks great when going to a party, I used my Naked 3 pallet to create the look and used the darker colours like darkside and blackheart. For the lip colour I used Le Keur Cosmetics Whistle Ball Red Lip Paint, as I find them to be long lasting than lipstick and it is a very bright red and eye catching. For a bag I would use a black clutch just to keep it simple!
