Cruise formal nights..The outfits!

Who doesn’t love getting dressed up to the nines every once in a while?! Before going on the cruise i was actually most looking forward to the formal nights where the dress code is smart. I have never seen so many gorgeous dresses in my life,it definitely gave me some food for thought. Here is what i wore;

The preparations
Scala dress/Biba Clutch/Primark heels

Red Herring dress/Biba Clutch

Lipsy dress/Vintage clutch

 My favourite dress i wore was my Scala sequinned dress, Scala sells some gorgeous dresses check them out here. It is an American brand but i purchased mine in a boutique in Exeter and i know that there are many other stockists in the UK. It was an expensive dress but i had it for my 18th birthday and its one of those dresses that is timeless and can be worn again and again as long as you have a special occasion to wear it for.

The purple dress is from Lipsy and is a nice simple backless dress which i teamed with a vintage handbag which my grandma passed down to me, its something that you couldn’t buy nowadays and she purchased it for a mere 12 shillings and 8 pence in Malta which is roughly 75p, bargain!!!

The final dress i wore is the red number and this was from Red Herring in Debenhams. This was also purchased a few years ago and it again is fancy without being too in your face. The feather clutch i wore this with is from Biba, i saw this clutch in House Of Fraser a few months ago and it was love at first sight! Sadly looking at the price tag it was £180, definitely out of my price range. However, a few weeks later it had been reduced to £49.50 i couldn’t believe my luck so that one was mine!

I hope you enjoyed reading!Sorry the pictures aren’t very close up to the dresses i didn’t think of this while i was away but i hope you get an idea of what they are like!

Have any of you wore these brands before or been on a cruise? 🙂
