In search of a party dress

On Friday night it’s our school’s late summer ball. I’ve never been to it before and I’m really looking forward to glamming up and heading out for the evening. I’ve got a really nice dress to wear – a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania dress that I got in a House of Fraser sale for £100, which personally I think is a great price for a dress that I hope to be able to wear for many years to come. It’s a bit like the dress here but cotton not taffeta. I am worried that it might be a bit summery now that the weather has definitely turned towards autumn but I think it will be my last chance to wear it this year before it really does get too cold!

I was doing a bit of fantasy shopping online looking  at other dresses. One of the sites I was looking at has new designers’ collections, including Temperley London, which is Alice Temperley’s collection. I love Temperley dresses they are so beautiful, unfortunately the price tag means I won’t be getting one any time soon but think how special you would feel wearing a dress as beautiful as this:

I also found this beautiful dress from the Irish designer Danielle Romeril . It’s completely different from what I usually go for but I love the shape and fabric. Black and blue shades together are everywhere at the moment:

However, if I really did have all the money in the world I think I would go for an Alexander McQueen dress. I defy anyone to wear the dress below and not feel fabulous, well in my case once I’d put all the relevant shape wear on of course…

Of course once the dress is sorted there are all the other important accessories to add like shoes, jewellery and bags but that is a post for another day. As it is I will be dusting off the party shoes and handbag that I already own (gold and sparkly!) and heading off to have some fun on the dance floor.

Whatever you are up to this weekend I hope that you have a wonderful time and do it in style!
