Ball gown blues

My year 12 ball was over 4 years ago. This was what I wore-

If you haven't guessed already, I'm the one in the red. This photo was taken about 2 weeks before my 18th birthday. Like most of the dresses worn at my ball, the dress was purchased from Strange Love in Perth (now known as 'Dana Mathers'). I really loved it and I still do to this day. I think it matched my personality perfectly at the time, especially the fact that I decided to wear a bow in my hair instead of the fascinator I brought a few weeks prior.

But if I was able to go back in time and do it again I would probably wear this little number-

So adorable and chic. I'm in love with the detailing at the top. The flower is just too cute and is a perfect touch. I think its really interesting how our tastes in fashion can change over time. I think that as we grow, so too does our style.

What did you wear to your ball?



  1. Love your ball gown and that blue one too!
    My school ball was on Saturday! I wore a garnet red dress with a line of black beads at the top with the straps sitting off the shoulders :) Sort of an early 1960's style gown.
