Tess Holliday does #SimplyBekini

Wish you had a bikini body? Well you can in TWO easy steps! First, get a bikini. Next, get a body. TA-DA! You’ve got a bikini body! 

A few weeks ago we asked you to show off what you’ve got and share your bikini pictures using the hashtag #SimplyBekini.

Check out all your fabulous #SimplyBekini pictures in our Pinterest board here.

We have LOVED seeing your pictures and now plus size superstar Tess Holliday has joined in the conversation to show her support for the #SimplyBekini campaign. 

Tess is the plus size model of the moment and became the first model of her size to be signed to a model agency – MiLK Model Management.

Self-proclaimed body confidence activist Tess says:

“I hope #SimplyBekini inspires women to love themselves and their wobbly bits. All women need to do to get a bikini body is to put a bikini on, then they’re ready to hit the beach!”

“There is no such thing as a perfect body and the hardest barrier for women to overcome is themselves. And no wonder, considering the skinny body ideals that are portrayed widely across the media today.”

Simply Be Fashion Blogger Event in New York

It was never going to be easy leaving the luxury of Sunset Marquis, however with the Soho Grand Hotel Penthouse Suite just a plane journey away we struggled to stay disappointed for too long!

Heading over to The City That Doesn’t Sleep seemed rather appropriate given that our next two days were packed full to the brim with fashion appearances … And everyone knows than when fashion’s an option, sleeping’s cheatin’!

Simply Be, with the help of Kelly Cutrone’s PR agency Peoples Revolution, was joined by some of New York’s most influential bloggers including Kelly Brown of And I Get Dressed, Margie Ashcroft of Margie Plus, Alissa Wilson of Stylish Curves, Madeline Jones and Marcy Cruz of Plus Model Magazine, Kelly Augustine, Liz Black of PS It’s Fashion, Ty Alexander of Gorgeous in Grey, Essie Golden of Golden Kaleidoscope, Chante B of Everything Curvy & Chic, Beck Delude of Manfatten Project, Sarah of Curvilly NYC, Christina Brown of Love Brown Sugar and CeCe of Plus Size Princess.

A fantastic night was enjoyed by all and we were completely overwhelmed by the response to our latest collection. Packed full of bright, bold prints and flattering statement shapes, we were confident that our range would be a real winner with our fashion bloggers but the confirmation was astounding. We would like to thank each and every blogger that made both of our blogger fashion events possible. Without such enthusiastic ambassadors Simply Be would not be as popular as it has become today, so thank you, your support is fantastic!

To find out what our bloggers thought of their evening with Simply Be, visit our Twitter and Instagram platforms where you can see how much fun that was had by all!

Holiday Trends by Reah Norman

Holiday season is well upon us, and with it comes plenty of glitz, glam and sparkle! We have teamed up with stylist and plus fashion expert, Reah Norman to help you find the perfect party look for the festive season.

Reah Norman Holiday Trends

DAY TO NIGHT / A perfectly well rounded wardrobe is built on items that have longevity, can be mixed and matched in endless style combinations for several different occasions, and easily taken from day to night.

IMG_5433.1

This easy to wear swing dress is a classic holiday color, paired with a festive embellished cardigan, black tights and closed toe shoes. An appropriate look for the office that is still cheerful for the season… {Shop the look HERE}

IMG_6020.1

Transitioning to the perfect cocktail party ensemble is simple… remove the cardigan to show the sexy lace detail of the dress, throw up your hair, switch out your shoes for a sexier heel, and add a few statement pieces to your look. Bam! You are ready to celebrate without any fuss!

DINNER PARTY / Holiday dressing is all about the details… elegant prints, rich texture and glitzy embellishments all make for party perfect separates that can be just as fancy as wearing a dress, especially when paired together in unexpected combinations.

IMG_5662.1 (1)

BLACK TIE AFFAIR / Blush pink is an unexpected color trend in the forefront this holiday season, which is usually saturated with jewel tones, dark palates and metallic. Keep it soft, light and feminine for a spectacular black tie affair with this beaded and sequin gown that is dripping in shimmering details, making sure you leave an impression!

IMG_5896.1

Keep the accessories light when wearing dresses with all over details, beading, and sequins. Let the beauty of the dress make the statement and do not overdue it with additional jewelry and patterns.  {Shop the look HERE}

COCKTAIL PARTY / LBD {LITTLE BLACK DRESS} The little black dress is every girl’s ultimate wardrobe must have! It is essential to have at least one go-to LBD that fits you like a glove and can be thrown on for a night on the town. Let your personality come through when choosing your LBD. A-line, body con, strapless, textured detailing, classic or a bit more edgy. What is your LBD personality?

IMG_6058.1 (1)

Look for details in a garment that work to your advantage. The gold embellishing stops perfectly at the midsection of this dress to help visually define my waist, and the drama at the shoulder helps balance out my shape and draw the eye up to the top half of my body.

IMG_6090.1

NEW YEAR’S EVE / Layer on the details for a New Years Eve celebration! This is the perfect occasion to go ALL out and decorate the night with your spectacular ensemble. Sequins, gold, oversized faux fur and a glam statement necklace, all balanced out with a sleek faux leather skinny pant. More is more, and it works!

When mixing several different textures, keep them all in the same or similar color palate to keep them from clashing. {Shop the look HERE}
