Voodoo Vixen Keira Dress - Simple Be


Summer may have come to an end, but that does not mean I will be packing my dresses away. I like to wear them all year through, and bring a little sunshine into every day. I love the large variety of styles dresses offer us, I love the fact that they can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion and I love the fact that dresses are a way to not only express how you feel but also help to set you into the mood/character you are trying to convey.

When I was given the opportunity to choose an outfit from Simply Be, I knew that I was looking for one that would bring me into Autumn in celebration. I wanted bright colours to make up for the lack of sun and pretty patterns to keep me cheerful, and when I saw this fruity number, I knew it would be the one.

The Voodoo Vixen Keira Dress is a bright, floral and fruit design, featuring apples and strawberries. The colours are mainly green and red, with hints of yellow. It has a collard, V neckline with red buttons trailing down the bust. It is made from cotton, has a discrete zip concealed on the side and comes with a red material belt that emphases the nip in at the waist.

Voodoo Vixen sizing can sometimes be a little confusing, with a 1XL being a 16 - 18, it can leave you a little unsure over where to place yourself. Usually wearing a size 18, I trusted the brand size guide and was pleased with the fact it ran true to size. There is some stretch in the fabric meaning it was also very comfortable, and though there is a zip on the side I found I didn't event need to use it. The skirt is flared and looks great with or without a petticoat. Its length is 431/2 inches and I am 5'8 meaning it falls just below my knees. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I feel more comfortable when my dresses end just below my knee as I feel it compliments my curvy figure.

I paired this beautiful fruity dress with the Voodoo Vixen Fruit Print Cardigan also from Simply Be. It is a vibrant red viscose and nylon mix with embroidered strawberries and butterflies on the front and strawberries and daisies on the back shoulders. The fit was true to size, and as with the dress I also went for the 1XL. It felt soft, comfortable and suited the shape of the dress perfectly.
This Voodoo Vixen outfit is bright, cheerful and vivacious. It is a go to dress for days when I am needing an energy or confidence boost. I love the fact it can be worn casually as a sweet summer dress or dressed up with a petticoat, change of belt and a pretty bag for a night out. 

I absolute love it, the quality is fantastic and I am so impressed with the fit. I would possibly change the belt as fabric ones tend to fold over, but overall I can not find a fault with this outfit. It comes in a size 8 to 26 and can be found on the Simply Be website, where there are many other beautiful dresses for you to peruse. 

Thank you so much for reading my post, and Thank you to Simply Be for letting me try out this stunning outfit. I not only loved the outfit I picked, but I also enjoyed my shopping experience on the website. Simply Be have so many fabulous items to choose from and I will be shopping with them again soon. I highly recommend any readers take a look too, you will be spoiled for choice.
