My Fairytale In Fanny Crown

Well hello there my lovelies! I hope all is well in the bloggingsphere. I have been looking forward to writing this post for months! It felt like this day would never arrive. Remember when I won the Fanny Crown monthly blogging contest and I won a tailor made evening gown? No? Well where on earth have you been?! You can read it here.
Yesterday the time finally came for me to wear my beautiful dress. It has been hanging in my bedroom for a month and I've been desperate to wear it. I'm not going to lie, there have been a couple of days when I was home alone and I sneakily put the dress on to twirl around my room. Shhh I wont tell anyone of you wont....she says to the entire internet....
I want to dedicate this post to the wonderful wonderful wonderful people at Fanny Crown. Without them I wouldn't have looked like a true princess and they made my day ever so special! Yesterday was my graduation dinner and ball. Champagne reception was held on our beautiful university campus and the dinner and ball was held at York racecourse. It was the last chance to see so many of my friends at university all together before we all part ways. What better way to say goodbye then to dress up and dance? I had such a lovely day and evening that I woke up smiling this morning. The weather was perfect and everyone looked beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better day to celebrate the end of my degree with my friends.

 The dress fit beautifully and felt incredible. The detail and care put into making my dress is so easy to see just from looking at it. It is so special and unique I just wish I could wear it every day! (I kindly informed my housemates at the end of the ball to expect to see a lot more of me in the dress around the house from now on). I will admit I was worried I would be too hot with all the layers of fabric however the skirt flowed so elegantly I glided around with such ease. I spent a lot of the night twirling and telling all I felt like a cross between a Disney princess and Taylor Swift. I really don't think there are enough words in the world that would express my gratitude to Fanny Crown for giving me such a beautiful dress. From the moment I had won the dress they took great care in assuring everything was right. I had difficulty matching up my sizes to which they quickly responded with the offer to tailor make it for me. How many people can say they have had a Parisian evening gown tailor made for them?! Dream. Come. True.

I will admit that I got such a thrill when someone would come up to me and ask where I got my dress from. I had so many compliments and my housemate even overheard someone in the toilet pointing at my dress and saying how much they liked it. Well I am a stunner after all ;) Honestly when I make it big and I am required to attend so many red carpet events (Or Leonardo DiCaprio realises I am the love of his life and wants me on his arm at the Oscars) I am definitely going to be using Fanny Crown!

I simply have to boast about the intricate detailing of the dress. The lace bodice fit so beautifully, hugging my body and giving a flattering shape. Each jewel and flower had been stitched on so delicately and created the perfect finish to an elegant gown. Oh and remember how I fell in love with the back in my blog entry? Well I was all about flaunting it. The lace V merges with the base fabric so sweetly it made the back just as stunning as the front. 

I would like to thank the team over at Fanny Crown for this opportunity, Amy for being helpful and supportive through the entire process from the blog post to receiving the dress and lastly to the dress makers who did an incredible job creating the perfect dress. There are no words to describe how much I would recommend Fanny Crown and if you're feeling creative then you should definitely have ago at their blogging competition where you too can become a princess!

Thank you Fanny Crown for giving me the perfect fairytale day!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I did writing it! Now it's time to get up, put the dress back on and do some laundry ;) Like I said....I'm wearing it forever.
