A couple of weekends ago we went to a charity ball called The Ball Of Hope to raise money for mental health & Telethon which is an annual Western Australian fundraising organization that raises money for children with illness, so it was a good cause to get dressed up & help contribute towards that. In fact the Telethon child for this year is a girl from my home town so it felt even more meaningful. It was a fun night, we enjoyed a photo booth that they had where you dress up with props. But of course the fun part was getting ready.
You will see my dress in a moment, I was so excited to get and it got here with one week to spare so I was very thankful for that. With the makeup, of course I wanted it to be glamorous & I took the colour theme for my dress and hoped it wouldn't look too matchy-matchy.
Apologies for the pic heavy post!
My dress is from www.myballdressau.com, it is so well made & I am absolutely in love with it, hopefully I can wear it somewhere else! I only got it a week before the ball but luckily it didn't need to be tailored because the asymmetrical hemline meant I wasn't tripping over it & it had a tie up back so the bust wasn't too big. If you are ordering a month before an event make sure you pay a little bit extra for a rush order!
My shoes are by "shoezy" from eBay and I loved how they looked with the dress. I went jewelery free because the sequins & shoes were so blingy, but I do wish I wore some 'dainty' bangles.

If you were to go to a ball, what would your style be?
P.S I cannot log onto blogger from my phone, all I get is infinite page redirects which is the worst pain in the world. I normally post drafts from my phone so it makes it really hard. Can it be fixed?
