Simply Be & All Black

In case you’re wondering, yes – the big curly hair is back and I’m loving it!! :-) Oh how I’ve missed this wild, carefree hair. It feels good to be back! :-) Ok, ok…I’m done, lol…let’s move on to today’s outfit post.

Have you ever shopped online at Simply Be? I came across this online site last year and instantly fell in love with their items. They carry sizes 10-28 and the prices are pretty reasonable. Last year I was planning an outfit for an event and there were a few dresses I had in mind. Browsing through the site, I saw this jacket – it was BAD! Faux leather sleeves, collar and trimming – it was perfect! I put it on my wishlist and to my GREAT surprise, I actually won the exact jacket form a Love Brown Sugar giveaway! I saw that she had the giveaway going on and the same jacket was the prize. To this day I am SO glad I entered. I guess you can say it was meant to be. 😉



As you know, wearing all black is always so easy. It’s a perfect canvas for gorgeous, colorful and bodacious jewelry, cute and playful blazers, and fun fancy shoes! The dress I’m wearing was a steal at $9.99 and I really like the tie in the front. It helps conceal the middle area – a huge bonus! 😉 The bold statement necklace was a thrifted gift from my mother-in-law. She too enjoys thrifting and bargain hunting.

The glittery shoes really compliment the necklace. I’m glad I decided to keep them, lol. I was so close to selling them on eBay because I hadn’t worn them in so long. But when the hubby suggest them to me, I had a change of heart. I plan to wear them more during the holiday season.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and I look forward to your feedback on my look. Are you a fan of all black looks too? Do you love bold statement necklaces as much as I do? Chime in and let me know! TTYS!

    You are a real beauty, and the camera loves you, completely! What a pleasure to meet you. You look lovely in your tuxedo jacket, and your LBD is sleek and very flattering. How nice for you that you “MiL” is a thrifer/shopper as well. Pretty piece she gave you, and it’s just right with your dress.
    How can one not love sparkly shoes!
