Feel like Cinderella at the Ball

Tortured by your step mother, or simply your family? Don't have money? Poor? But have a really important formal event coming up? Most all, do you want to look like them?


Be the Cinderella and get your dress from Dido Bridal, they're here to be your fairy godmother and wave their magic wand over you. 

Here's my situation. I have numerous balls coming up during my university life, but what am I to wear? I'll only wear them once because the dress is the main attraction of the night! But it must be beautiful, but they're so expensive. No more 'buts', here are your options. 

Option 1: Rent a Dress

As cheap as they may sound, costs don't actually fall that low even for worn dresses. Costs vary from $250 all the way up to infinity! Plus options are narrower and materials are of less good quality. 

Option 2: Buy One!

"Buy one?" you ask, "I don't have the money." You don't need hundreds of dollars to buy one, there are beautiful BRAND NEW gowns that are under $100 (AUD) at Dido Bridal. Here are the dresses I am wanting to buy so, so, badly, guess the prices!

1st: $97.19; 2nd: $88.16; 3rd: $97.35; 4th: $96.85

Can you believe it?!

Well now comes the doubting, is it fraud, is it really bad quality? Well here are the FAQs from the website:

How Do You Sell Dresses at Such Low Prices? is able to offer its dresses online 50% - 80% off retail prices for 2 key reasons. 
1. We operate with lower overheads than a local retail store. We do not need to rent the store and employ sales staff or an alterations department.
2. Our dresses come from the manufacturers that we cooperate with. We do not use third party sources.

How about the Quality of your Dresses? is the world's leading online wedding apparel website. We provide complete one-stop shopping for all brides, bridesmaids and all special occasion events. inspects every gown and guarantees the condition. High quality, best price, and 100% satisfaction is our goal.

What materials do you usually use on your wedding dress products?
Chiffon: Delicate, sheer, and transparent -- made from silk or rayon, with a soft finish; often layered because of its transparency, making it popular for overskirts, sheer sleeves, and wraps.
Organza: Crisp and sheer like chiffon, with a stiffer texture similar in effect to tulle, but more flowing; popular for skirts, sleeves, backs, and overlays.
Satin: A heavy, smooth fabric with a high sheen on one side; very common in bridal gowns.
Silk: The most sought-after, cherished fiber for wedding dresses (and also the most expensive).
Silk-Like Satin:A smooth silk satin, with a glossy front and matte back.
Taffeta: Crisp and smooth, with a slight rib.
Tulle: Netting made of silk, nylon, or rayon; used primarily for skirts and veils (think ballerina tutus).

Also, you can use PayPal to pay, so it's safer!

Despite this sounding like an advertisement for the site, I'm not paid to promote it. It's just that good that I wish to share it. No advertising firm will pay me to advertise them when I don't even have that many followers. But if you read my blog often and will think you will be interested in my future blogs, please follow me! Otherwise feel free to just pop by when you're bored to see what's changed, or 'what's up'.

So thanks for reading! Hope you found this site really awesome! I hate telling people to do things but please like the posts that you have read so I can feel your presence!

Ideas for Red Carpet Event


Taking inspiration from the famous Ruby Lin who has a similar face shape as me

Tied up, low and at the back. Fringe down

Swirled/wavy fringe

Tied up, loose bun, fringe clipped back.

Tied back (with fringe), very loose.

Creative masterpiece at the front of head by pulling all hair tightly to the top.

Makeup & Hair

Dramatic night makeup with creative masterpiece hair on top.


Soft pink lips and dramatic eyes.

Soft pink lips and less dramatic eyes

Semi dramatic eyes with nude pink lips


White dresses at the Red Carpet

Selena Gomez with simple white dress, nude heels, long earings and thin bangle

Emma Watson with shiny white dress, metallic silver heels and short dangling earings

Cameron Diaz with simple structured white dress, thin white bangle, gold and nude heels and studded earings.

Korean celebrities with more white dresses paired with gold bangles and dangling earings

I've actually already decided on the dress, it was one that I fell in love with when I was shopping for a graduation dress but it was $400 back then. Recently my mum went shopping at Myers and found the dress on sale! It was slashed down to $50! It's a short white dress with a nude bra-looking upper area, thick straps, and draped with white fabric over it. The material of the entire dress isn't too shiny/glowy so I need to pair it with some extra shiny accessories. I've got two silver/white bangles sorted but now I am deciding whether I should pair the top area with long earings or a necklace, or maybe just leave it, but will it not be 'glam' enough for the red carpet? Will it be too 'glam'? I don't know, just wait and see.
