My 2013 Debutante Ball!

In today's post I am showing you what I wore to my debs.
I instantly fell in love with the dress that I wore to my debs, as soon as I saw it I knew that it was the one I wanted to wear. I went looking for my debs dress in a designer dress rental boutique called Cari's Closet in Malahide County Dublin; Ireland. Here is the link to their facebook page for more information on this amazing boutique:

I love this place so much because even if you don't have the money to splash out on very expensive designer dresses, you can still get the chance to wear them and feel like a million dollars by just simply renting one of these designer dresses out for 3 whole days for a fraction of what it would cost to actually purchase the dress. However, if you wish to fork out the money and invest in one of these stunning dresses of course you can purchase them as well as rent them out.
Here is the dress that I wore by Forever Unique and it only cost me 200 euro to rent out for 3 days and it would have cost me 700 euro to purchase! I did not want a stereotypical debs dress and so as you can imagine I was delighted when I came across this beauty. It's so unusual and I found that the mermaid tail really makes you stand out and it also adds height.

I wanted to go for a 'Old Hollywood' look, so I got my hair done in old Hollywood waves, I did red lips for the ultimate old Hollywood effect. I have to say that the dress fit me like a glove and I never wanted to take it off. The quality of the dress was amazing and it was very easy to move around and dance in throughout the night.
I am quite small as I am 5'2 and so I wore 6 inch platforms to make the length of the dress fit me perfectly.

These are the 6inch platform heels that I wore with my debs dress. They are from Schuh and they were perfect as they are both extremely stylish and they are surprisingly comfortable as wedges normally are more bearable to wear for long nights out rather than the option of stilettos.

 Finally I didn't want a plain stereotypical clutch bag either so I went on the hunt for an Alexander McQueen look alike clutch. This clutch from a jewellery store named Cherry's in Stephen's Green Shopping Centre on Grafton Street; Dublin. It is very much inspired by the famous skull clutches designed by the great Alexander McQueen. I was very lucky as it was originally around the 80 euro mark but I got it on sale for 38 euro! WHAT A STEAL!

Finally I would like to add in the fact that a lot of Irish celebrities in particular rent out dresses from Cari's Closet. For example I would just like to point out that former Miss World 2003; Rosanna Davison rented out the exact same Forever Unique dress as me the following day! How cool is that?
Who wore it better?
