Pretty dresses.

So recently my school's started to organise our deb (or more formally, our "presentation ball"), something that's offered to Year Eleven every year. I'm not quite sure how to explain it...basically it involves all the girls getting dressed up in pretty white dresses and the boys wearing suits, a bit of ballroom type dancing and dinner. And then more dancing. It is most definitely not the whole girls getting presented to "eligible bachelors" event that it used to be. It's just a lot of fun and well, a chance to look nice.

What this means is that as of late I've been spending a fair bit of time making my way through websites and websites of lovely dresses, that are in most cases, a bit too expensive for my casual after school job to afford.

Here are a couple I've been swooning over lately - dresses from Papilio's The Nymph collection. Fingers crossed I find something similar that's a little less exxy, and little more located in Australia, not Belarus...


  1. Those dresses are gorgeous!
    They are so graceful and elegant, they look like angles! I want one too ^_^

  2. Hi! On my blog I'm publishing guest posts (or pictures) once a month. I would love to have you enter one of your posts. If you're interested, the form is on my sidebar and I would be happy to answer any questions!

  3. I think the 1st 2 are nice. The third picture seems odd. A bunch of frills on the front but it's like it fell off or something. The 1st one looks more composed though it might seem odd to you if you stare at it a bit for a while. 2nd picture seems to be a safer choice assuming there's no wayward lace hanging on the front side of the skirt.

    Hope you have fun at your ball.
