Ball Outfit Ideas...

Hey Lovelies,

So it's that time of year again when I obsess about what to wear to the summer ball.

I always look forward to it but the close I get the more I panic.  The main problem is that I am a short girl with a big chest for my frame so usually long dresses are too long and ill fitting on me. So I steer clear of them.

I do however still love the idea of a proper ball dress.  Usually I wear cocktail dresses and as much as I love them and they are more me I always lust after the fancy frocks the girls wear.

So I have been trying to inspire myself by planning possible options for shopping ideas.  Here is what I have come up with.  Personally, my favourite is the one on the left - which is actually a skirt and top (underwear top!).  Even though this is long it still feels more me.  It has the more neutral colours overall with a pop of orange which is one of my favourite colours when I have got a tan.

What do you think ladies?  Which would you go for?

  4. The green one is STUNNING! So wishing I had somewhere to go this summer to justify buying a posh new frock like that.
