I almost didn’t go to my first high school ball. I was far too cool for it. I was above such things as pretty girly dresses and high heels. Or so I thought. The morning before the ball I suffered a serious bout of FOMO and urgently organised a trip to the mall with my mother. I picked out a floor length black dress, understated and suitably gothic – like me. To offset the formal occasion I teamed it with a bright purple feather boa and a pair of black doc martens. After all, I was a bad-ass goth at a highschool ball. I was pretty happy with how my last minute outfit turned out.
But as I gazed at the girls on the dance floor in sky high heels and tiaras, their bodies encased in masses of tulle and satin, a small part of me wished I’d gone all out. A tiny spark inside me yearned to go full blown cheerleader and join the other girls in their princess inspired dreams. But, I was too cool for school.
Luckily it’s not too late for me. There is still time for me to get my gown on. I love dresses, more so ball dresses. They whimsical and beautiful and the stuff little girls dreams are made of of. Ball dresses are gorgeous things, even more so the ball dresses from online taylor-made boutique Sofia Moore! You just choose the style, colour, add your measurements and whamo! 15 days later your new ball dress arrives via free shipping. There are so many colours and styles to choose from, there is sure to be something for everyone. And the best thing is Sofia Moore is now available in New Zealand!
