With the season of University Balls upon us like the recent Commerce and Arts ball in NUIG, I decided to do a post on some of the best dresses to ensure you are the belle of the ball!
The glitz, glam and sheer panic that can ensue in the preparation for an event like a ball can have you dreading the thoughts of dress hunting fear not the modern world that we live in nowadays has allowed for us to have the accessibility of all our needs and wants be catered for through the brilliant medium of online shopping! You may be involved in organising the ball or very busy with college work and searching from shop to shop may not be an option for you. So thank God for some online saviours!
ASOS is always a reliable and variable pitstop for online browsing as trawling through rails upon rails can be a stressful and futile task on the quest for your dream dress,offering you a plethora of labels,colours and designs at the click of a button and in the comfort of your own home!
Nasty Gal is a new little gem that I have recently happened to come upon. An American online vintage website that offers shipping and delivery to Ireland is the perfect place to find stand out items of clothing and source your ideal gown for the ball.
ASOS Best Gowns
This black dress is classy, timeless and simple enough to leave room for the addition of a statement necklace! It could be teamed with an eye-catching shoe .
Virgos Lounge Purple dress available from Asos for €166.68, great teamed with simple sandal and plain but dazzling clutch.
Nasty Gal have a nice range of dresses available to order this one in particular is $68.00.
This striking Royal Blue dress has a care-free and hippie vibe and could be worn with loose curls and and a long pretty necklace. The colour is so vibrant and would really compliment fair-haired & pale skin. $98.00
Of course to complete your look a clutch is always a must to carry your make-up, phone and essentails! Here’s my favourite ones from the brilliant site “Pretty Little Thing” a clothing website which is particularly good for accessories. Here is a mix of bright jolts of colour and classic,smart clutches !
These clutches can start at anything from $70.00 and up, but they are amazing pieces ro brighten up any ball gown. Don’t you think?
Hope you enjoyed my first post and you have a ball!
