The Modern Prom

A modern spin on the 1950's Prom dress. My figure doesn't usually suit this style as I am very busty but I found this at River Island, I know I never usually shop there but I was browsing and stumbled across this little gem. The detailing on the back is so pretty too. I am hoping to find a petty coat to accentuate the full skirt. 

The delicate pattern and light weight material make this perfect for a pleasant summers day, if we ever get one here in Wales.

This week has been so much fun, I have decided on not one but two summer holidays. I booked to visit my wonderful friends in Holland next month and then heading out to a yoga retreat in Morocco in late September, so I will definitely get a chance to wear this pretty dress at some point.

Do you have any Summer holidays planned?

Your photography is beautiful, and I like all the collage style photos you create for your posts, entertained me tonight reading through some of your past posts (: I love this dress, it reminds me of one I have hanging in my wardrobe which is just a little too short for me but I may dig it out and give it a go again (: xx
