graduation dress


dress: miss selfridge, shoes: ebay

Had a bit of a joke over on my blog about what I was looking for to wear for graduation saying I wanted a Big Fat Gypsy wedding dress! But basically when I was trying to explain to my Mum what I wanted to wear for graduation I said something along the lines of pink, silky, and puffy (basically I wanted a pink cocktail dress type thing) and she was like "WHAT A GYPSY WEDDING DRESS" and then it basically stuck!

So I didnt find the dress of my dreams *ahem* so settled for this pink petite number from Miss Selfridge. It fits lovely and looks really nice on. A little more tame than I would normally go for, but then I sort of remembered that its supposed to be a bit posh and formal! I've bought some heels as well to wear with it, but Im not sure if they will come in time, which is super annoying! Will post proper photos when I do actually graduate on Thursday! So exciting!

  4. I think this would look a hundred times better than a puffy, pink Gypsy dress anyway (hahaha). Love the colours, and the shoes look fab with it, too.

  41. I bet you'll look lovely in that outfit, the shoes are gorgeous!

    I don't know how you can have two blogs, I can hardly think of what to post on my one blog never mind two. I think that's probably because mine's more of a personal blog with the occasional outfits cause half the time I'm at home or too busy to even bother with pictures.

    Not very happy with your main blog, tried posting a relatively long comment and it won't let me and is asking to sign in with another account? It says it's restricted to team members to be specific, weird though cause you have other comments.
