I recently attended the Simply Be flagship store opening in Manchester & like the other stores I've seen, it didn't fail to disappoint. Although smaller than the Teesside branch there was a great selection of stock with an eclectic mix for all styles & occasions; unsurprisingly my favourite section featured mostly black, leather & the infamous disco pants. After swanning around sipping mojitos & cooing over babies, I grabbed a handful of clothes & set up camp in the changing rooms; I fell in love with a gorgeous floral dress that was a favourite with the staff & an amazing black velvet skater dress that would be perfect for the upcoming holiday season. Aside from getting a cheeky picture with Kym Marsh & catching up with my little babe Rosie, my favourite part of the evening had to be chatting to the delightful staff & finally meeting some of my favourite bloggers, the lovely Gem (& her hilarious friend Steph) & my uni life coach Mel; it's so good to finally be able to meet people you feel like you know already. Huge thank you to Simply Be for hosting another fabulous opening.
