Well there isn’t all that long until I have to work out what dress I am wearing to my graduate ball come this summer. Sugarbabes are playing, along with pendulum (very exciting) and *ahem* The Vengaboys. Who aren’t quite so good – though they are a very nostalgic 90’s throwback. A blast from the past, if you will. The problem is, however, that it’s a formal prom with dancing, jazz bands and lots of excited nearly graduated students. It is also a formal prom with a fairground – so all those posh floor length frocks you think about first off are out of the window – it has to be something formal yet fun, practical yet fancy. I sense a problem. This problem is money – I can’t afford to buy a new dress, oops. I have plenty of dresses (see photographs), but have absolutely no idea what to wear on the day! Ah, the issues we face at university!
Anyone got any favorites for a summer ball? Or, alternatively, think none are appropriate?
This one is shapely and pretty.
Gorgeous clingy dress this one – but is it too cocktail-y?
A beautiful summery dress in satin
Short/clingy blue velvet dress
The wildcard – long (black than it looks) calf length dress, tight around the bodice. Can be “dressed up”.
