To the ball
Okay, let’s start off by saying sorry to my brother! This is probably not the most flattering photo of him, but it was the only decent one of me. So I had no choice…(sorry Sam)…I went to a charity ball last weekend which turned out to be a great evening. I spent forever trying to find a dress and snapped up this Missguided beauty when it came back in stock, after many dress fails and some brands that made it incredibly stressful with their total lack of customer service. AND BREATHE.
I love the simple style of this dress, the slim flit and the elegant neckline. I did have my eye on the red version but unfortunately it was sold out so I went for classic black and paired it with my hot pink clutch. It’s not often I get to glam up so I really enjoyed donning a ball dress, taming my mane and whacking on a bright lip (Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick – literally my holy grail of lipsticks. It’s insanely matte). Also, can we just give Missguided a high five for the length of this dress. At 5ft8 I have a tough time finding floor length dresses and I’m not quite tall enough for Tall ranges – you see my dilemma.
I went for these Miss KG shoes which you can’t really see in the pics and I totally forgot to get some photos of. Yep, they’re flats. Heels made the dress do the not-quite-floor-length-now thing so I rebelled and left the glass slippers at home. Not quite Cinders, but there’s always next time.
