My graduation ball dress!

My uni graduation ball is NEXT Saturday! How scary is that?! I really can't believe uni is actually coming to an end :/

But on a more positive note... graduation ball = valid excuse for a new dress! :) So I'd looked in a few shops but hadn't really seen anything, until I'd stopped looking - today! I was after a maxi dress & one that didn't cling to the skin (due to the weight gain side effect of revision!).

The dress I bought fit my specificities perfectly :) Its the 'floral mesh back maxi dress' by Topshop. Lemme know what you think of it!

Back


But now my issue lies with shoes, jewellery & clutch... I think as its quite a bold colour with detail on the back I can't really go over board on accessories.

I'd love it if you could help with any suggestions :)

  1. I think that is the perfect dress if you are a worried about having put on a little weight as it shows skin without really showing skin as as you said it's not very clingy. Yay! I hope it looks amazing and you have fun at your ball :) following xx

  4. I love it! I have finally chosen a ball gown for my school leavers ball! Also quite last minute, but so relieving to have one!
    Maybe you should look at sparkly shoes! They could break up the strong colour without clashing with it!

    I hope your ball is AMAZING!
