With my my graduation coming up in November its always been obvious to me that i want to look my best and that i find the dream dress for it. I think with graduation some people get it so wrong in the dress departments with the colours,lengths and the styles of their dresses. For me i want something that looks classy,elegant and nothing too flashy. Black or grey has always been the colour choice in my eyes for an appropriate graduation dress as i need to bare in mind how it will look with the robes, the last thing i want is the colours to clash! I also want it to be a cocktail length of dress, as again anything long length would just seem to blend in with the length of the robes. I was introduced to Fanny Crown last week who specifically sell evening wear which was a blessing in disguise. I was only saying to my friend last week that during the summer months i find it so hard to find evening/party clothes because there really is no shop that just specialises in that.
The dresses on Fanny Crown are so spectacular and whatever event you are anticipating going to there is a dress to suit everyones style and taste. Without further ado there was even a section especially dedicated to graduation dresses meaning the online experience with Fanny Crown was enjoyable as it was really easy to navigate around and find what i was looking for quickly. I collated some of my favourite dresses for the event which you can see above, but I quickly found ‘the one’ which i have featured below and showing how i would style it on the day!
I absolutely love the simplicity and elegance of this dress,black definitely doesn’t need to be boring and the ruffles add gorgeous texture and shape to the dress,it is cinched in at the waist which is the most flattering part of the body which as you can see on the model gives her such a lovely shape. With online shopping i do however worry about the item fitting and having to bother with returns but the fact that Fanny Crown tailor make it to your own measurements makes it an extra special service, meaning that the dress is completely unique and bespoke to you! I have never had a dress made to measure but i can see the massive advantages to it because nowadays sizing in shops vastly differs so its impossible for things to always fit you correctly, it would certainly be a dream to have a dress made to measure and that fits like a glove for my graduation!
As for accessories i wanted to pick a colour that wasn’t black or white and something that would really add a pop of colour to the outfit. Obviously it had to be hot pink! Definitely one of my favourite colours, i matched the pinks as well as i could and i absolutely love the clutch bag because of the black trim on the outside making it the perfect bag for the dress. I also love sandal heels like this as again they are really elegant but not too over the top, walking in heels for me is a nightmare as it is so i need to be sure i’m going to be able to walk in them during the ceremony, i really do not fancy tripping over in front of everyone haha.
