There’s such an array of shops you can search such a department stores which host a large range of brands to suit everyone. Finding the perfect dress is easy if you know and understand what you are looking for.


Wedding Guest Outfit

Finding the perfect dress for to wear as a wedding guest is important. You don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb in the bride and grooms wedding photos. One of the key things to remember when looking for a wedding guest dress is, have an idea on colour before going shopping. Whilst looking for a wedding guest dress I try and look for something a bit ‘out of the ordinary’ a dress that I wouldn’t wear everyday. Below is a lovely mint dress ruffle dress that I spotted in Oasis.



This would go lovely with a pair of cream shoes and cream bag or for a little bit of sparkle why not wear silver?

Are you looking for Bridesmaid dresses for your big day or even your own wedding dress… You’d be surprise with how amazing our department stores can be to find that lovely satin number for your best girsl. John Lewis and Debenhams have a lovely wedding section in my local stores, perfect to have a little gander at. Also if you are getting married in the near future, remember you can enjoy wedding photo sharing with fellow guests from your wedding this allows for all your wedding photos to be stored in one place.  This allows everybody from yuor special day to enjoy viewing all the lovely photographs of you and your guests.

Prom Dress

Your whole time at school is leading up to when you can get glammed up for your prom and party the night away with your friends before you head out into the adult world. You want to make sure it’s an unforgettable night and that you have lots of amazing pictures to look back on, so you’ll need to find the perfect dress to suit your style. Make sure you pick a prom dress that flatters your figure and suits your colouring so it looks timeless and you’re not left looking back at your prom pictures thinking ‘why?!’.

    Nice post. When it comes to dresses, I always go for the long ones, to cover my muscular calves. And there are always some beautiful ones.

    I went to my school ball last year and it took me ages to find a dress that I was really happy with. It was worth the wait though because I absolutely loved the one I ended up going in. I think you’re completely right. Finding the perfect dress definitely makes a difference. Really great post!

    I went to a wedding a couple of weeks ago and the stress finding a good outfit was REAL. Green isn’t a colour I wear often but I love both of these styles! x
