Hello-y dearies! I have an exciting post to share with you all today all about ball gowns!
Alright, so I lied. This post isn’t necessarily about the history of ball gowns, or whatever you thought I meant by the previous statement. BUT it is about inspiration for what I am going to wear to our Church’s Yuletide Ball! I am in a bit of a conundrum about what to wear, since I don’t have time to make myself a new dress. So I decided to ask you all for help in deciding!
Up for consideration first (No. 1), this lovely blue number is very similar to a 1940’s swing dress that I have. It would be lovely to wear since it’s so flow-y, but I’m just not sure yet.
No. 2 is most like a formal skirt that I have, that I would wear with a peplum top that Mom made. I’m just not so thrilled about either of these options though.
No. 3 is like my 1830’s dress which I am considering wearing.
Sorry, but No. 4 is just for eye candy, and for future inspiration. 🙂
No. 5 is another option for how I could style my formal skirt with more of a 30’s vibe.
No. 6 is once again for eye candy, though it does have a double purpose: As this is a formal ball, I am debating what length of dress to wear. I have a gorgeous dress that would be perfect except that it’s mid-calf length. So my question for you is: Would you wear a mid-calf length dress to a formal ball?
SIGH… These last two are positively just eye candy-dream dresses. Which would you want to wear? The 50’s ball gown, or the 1900’s evening velvet?
