Cinderella

Some call me a day – dreamer and sometimes i think they are right, i dream about;  fairy tales and fashion shows, horse – drawn carriages  and Louis Vuitton luggage. I believe this is a quality that my boyfriend adores in me, and has promised me one day to take me to a Ball! (Which i do hope is it Paris by the way)  I almost fainted to hear that i will be getting dressed up in most magical gown for a fairytale evening! I thought i would fantasize about those beautiful,  creative , elegant princess ball gown dresses! * sigh, floating <3

 A ball gown is the most formal female attire for social occasions. According to rules of etiquette,  a ball gown must be worn where “white tie” for men or “evening dress” for the ladies  is specified on the invitation. It is traditionally a full-skirted gown reaching at least to the ankles made of luxurious fabric, delicately and  feminine trim. Most versions are cut off the shoulder with delicate necklines. Ball Gowns where most common in the eighteenth century when people where dressing up for affairs and spending money on these incredible dresses
