Just thought I would write a quick post about my look for my Lacrosse Boat Ball on Saturday! The night was actually amazing, (many bottles of wine were consumed) and I absolutely loved my dress. So while the focus of this blog is normally vintage, I want to show that looking good, even for formal events, doesn't have to break the bank! Us poor students eh...
I went for black (of course) as it's effortlessly chic and slimming to boot. Spaghetti straps are everywhere at the moment, and while this trend can be difficult for "ladies with a large bust" (ha) if you invest in a strong supportive bra there is no reason you can't rock this trend. For ladies with this problem I suggest Boux Avenue as they seem to be the ONLY decent high street brand that go above a DD. A little bit pricey, but 100% worth it. (10% off for students too.)
I decided to be a little bit daring and follow in the footsteps of Angelina and Rihanna (a girl can dream right?) with a split leg dress. This really worked with my bright statement shoe, which I used to bring a summery feel to my look.
The pictures are far from professional, but thought I'd give you guys an update anyway!
