Dress: Local Boutique / Shoes: (my favourite) Black Peep Toe with ankle strap heels / Clutch: Colette by Colette Hayman / Necklace: Portmans
The day of my formal had finally arrived. For the past couple of weeks I have been buzzing with excitement. During the weeks leading up to formal I found that looking for a formal dress is more challenging than you think. Do you ever experience that when you are looking for something in particular (like a formal dress), you can never find it but when you’re not looking for something, you can find it everywhere (do you know what I mean?). Well that’s what happened while I was shopping for a dress. Luckily for me, I was able to find a dress at a boutique in Paramatta by the end of a (long) day.
I chose this beige coloured tulle dress with a sweetheart neckline. The dress has black lace detailing along the waistline up to the top left hand corner of the neckline with silver crystals. I just love this dress. It’s has the right amount of “poof” and I love the way it fits. It just makes me feel so girly and pretty. The thing that made me drawn to this dress is the black detailing. I love how the black contrasts with the softness of the beige and tulle. I also like how a piece of tulle is draped over the top half of the black detailing. It makes the black look softer and not as harsh against the beige fabric.
Since, I tend to go for this style (sweet heart with a-line skirt) quite often for formal/special occasion dresses, I decided that in the future I will avoid these styles of dresses and go for other different dress styles and silhouettes. But, for formal I wanted to go for a dress with a some “poof” because when will I be able to wear a dress like this ever again. You will not always be able to pull off a girly, “poofy”, pretty dress like this.
I paired the dress with various black accessories to match the black lace detailing on the dress. I wore my favourite black peep toe heals with ankle straps, a black structured envelope clutch and a black and silver statement necklace. I got my hair and make-up done at Royals hair and beauty salon.
Overall it was a great night. I really enjoyed dancing and having fun with my friends and it will definitely be a night to remember.
