Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Ruched Sleeve Skater Dress from Simply Be

When I first saw this Ruched Sleeve Skater Dress on the Simply Be website, I was besotted with the 80s style puffball sleeves. Goth Molly Ringwald is as style choice I can fully get behind, so couldn't wait for the dress to arrive at my flat to see if it was everything I'd hoped. Spoiler alert - it was!

The dress is a rather lovely take on the classic LBD, with an elegant skater shape and eye popping balloon sleeves. It was the back which really caught me off guard though, with the high neck at the front being held together by a self tie strap sat atop a surprise cut out. It really gave the 80s style a bit more of a modern update, and also gave it a bit more of a spring / summer feel despite the dark, solid colour.

I wore this for the first time when I visited London Edge, so couldn't resist vamping it up with a dark lipstick and a cute star eyeliner stamp. Teenage me would definitely have given me a high five!

Until next time,
