A lovely friend of mine has asked me to do a blog post on ball gowns as she has an event coming up soon! So this one is for you, and all the other girls out there who need a little gown inspiration for their Sunday night.
The evening ball gown has always and will always be an item that every women should have in their wardrobe. A beautiful gown is something that makes any women feel special -even just for a moment. Here are some of my favourites in a variety of shapes, colours, styles and prices.
ASOS 'True Decadence Bandeau' Maxi Dress- AUD $70.20
This dress is an example of a classic style with its simple bandeau neckline and chiffon material. This dress has a flattering, fluid waistline and skirt with soft silk detailing which makes for such elegance. Such an affordable price too!
Rachel Gilbert 'Elise Gown'- AUD $1, 195.00
From one extreme in terms of price to another, this Rachel Gilbert dress is absolutely stunning! With the high beaded neckline detailing, and the subtle peplum waistline this dress is definitely worth the price tag.
Sass and Bide 'The Rabbit Hole' Sheer long dress- AUD $490.00
One can never go wrong with Sass and Bide, especially not with this number! I love the classic, white detailing and the side splits at the hem. It also comes with a separate silk slip lining so you wont feel so exposed! Also comes in a dusty orange.
Nicholas 'Event Strapless Peplum Maxi'- AUD $650.00- Green with Envy.
This dress is simply beautiful with its cut out bust and peplum feature. Nicholas is known for producing designs that are original and unique, and this particular design is just that! It is designed with a detachable skirt that has a press stud closure which makes it so versatile and gives it the ability to be worn day or night.
ASOS 'TFNC Maxi dress with Lace Black and Fishtail'- AUD $96.95
This dress reminds me of a beautiful Witchery number that I spotted Miranda Kerr wearing, only a maxi version - and isn't it sexy! Black and ball gowns always go- especially this one with its lace detailed panels at the front and back. With the thigh-high split this dress screams buy me!
Sass and Bide 'Lucky 13 bustier harness dress'- AUD $790.00
Another amazing Sass and Bide number, this dress is different with the detachable embellishment piece and silk panelling that attach to a belt around the waistline. I personally love the embellishment piece with the beading! Simply stunning.
Rachel Gilbert 'Ashleigh Gown' AUD $995.00
Another gorgeous Rachel Gilbert gown is this one here. This is another example of a classic look with the split chest and sequinned breast detailing. Although a little on the expensive side, this is one of those dresses that is a lust have and must have!
ASOS 'John Zack Maxi Dress with Thigh Cutout'- AUD $63.52
ASOS seems to be the place to shop for affordable yet gorgeous ball gowns! This dress is hot with its black, high neckline, crossed strap back and slimming fit. Definitely on my list!
Well there you have it! My list of ball gowns each different in style, cut and affordability. Hope you enjoy and have picked some favourites!
