Fashion, Popular Culture & Entertainment

Recently having my own graduation ball, I found that searching for the perfect dress was hard work. So I decided to write about a few of my favourites showing what I thought were affordable and easy to purchase as a high-street buy. I wanted to gather a collection of what could be for the specific occasions that are similar such as prom/college/graduation etc.

Here is my top five:

1. // Blush Hour Tulle Dress 

 Nasty Gal //

// £137

Presented in the most mad blush, this dress can separate as a light pink bodice with a skirt as an attachment. The bodice features a sweetheart neckline and the skirt is made in floor length tulle. Perfect for prom.

2. // Ariana Grande Cutout Body Maxi Dress

Lipsy //

// £68.00

This evening wear gown is my ultimate favourite, also the one I wore to my graduation. Cutout design with a rushing detail on the waist, team up with a pair of silver high heels and clutch bag for a classic red carpet look.


3. // Limited Edition Long Dress

Zara //

// £49.99

Zara’s limited edition, plunges from the neckline with a glittered tint to glam up the simple style of a maxi dress. Cut out back with detailed strap-lines.

4. // Pleated Flutter Sleeve Maxi Dress


// £75.00

This lined body is pleated chiffon on the sleeves with a plunge neckline, open back with strap detail, nude colour is so in for this season. Grab while you can.

5. // Premium Leaf Embellished Mini Dress Blue

Misguided //

// £95.00

Embellished detailing on this dress is something I’m crushing on at the minute. Nude mesh finish and mini dress for underneath works amazingly well together, also with a discreet zip to the side for a comfortable finish. Wear with nude heels to keep those eyes on the dress.

Hope this helps with ideas if you have a certain occasion cropping up soon! Let me know in the comments what your favourites are this season, or what your favourite is from my top picks.

I thought I’d target myself a tiny weeny little goal, to do a Top 5 for fashion each and every month. Now I’m not going to say that I’m going to stick at this, although I wish I had the shear motivation to do so frequently each day. Don’t get me wrong I love blogs and I love writing it just seems to not like me , by that I mean I feel like I don’t have the confidence to, then sometimes, just sometimes I’ll just think, who cares? So let’s just see how it goes shall we!



ASOS Duster Coat In Textured Wool.

MISSGUIDED Marliee Check Print Duster Coat

Was £35 NOW £15

A professional yet casual grid print coat will turn heads in the street. A rad longline tailored number will leave you some edge to your seasoned look.



MANGO Flowy Trench


Wanting to keep it simple? Perfect for a coffee date or the way to a work meeting, this pastel grey delight will forever be your statement piece.





Although this may be above people’s price range there’s nothing better than a window shop… This sleek piece is beautifully engineered to fit all shapes and sizes. Flawlessly perfected as an asymmetric waterfall front.



TOPSHOP Split Back Duster Coat


This lighter duster is definitely the best saved until last. With a split back storm flap and a double breasted front, I personally would never take it off.

If there’s a Duster Coat that you seem to be loving this season, let me know in the comments guys!
