Pretty Dress Alert! Fanny Crown Paris

Hey guys!

Hope you've all been enjoying the lovely weather we've been having this past week :) I've been trying to make the most of it, no doubt the rain will return soon enough!

Wedding season is in full swing and I'm sure most of you have at least one wedding coming up over the next few weeks. I've been hunting online for a dress to wear for a wedding in Spain recently and I came across a french company called Fanny Crown which have gorgeous formal dresses. They have hundreds of dresses to choose from and deliver internationally which is great. There is something for everyone including full length ballgowns, cute girly dresses to the knee and even wedding dresses. I fell in  love with a few and just had to share them with you! 

The first dress that caught my eye is absolutely gorgeous and it's the 'Amazing Backless Short Multicoloured Evening Dress'. I know this isn't exactly a very summery colour but the detailing is stunning. 

The end trim is scalloped and there is intricate lace detail throughout the whole dress. Even though it is backless it's a very delicate looking dress and not loud which is why I love it. It retails for €169 and is available to view here

I would pair this with a pair of nude or blush shoes, a nice loose wavy upstyle and a sweet girly make up look. I think the options below would go really nicely!

The next dress I found is a bit more formal but not over the top. The colour is what really attracted me to this one. Its a gorgeous pale pink with sequin detailing across the top. The Vintage Stunner Evening Dress is aptly named and is perfect for a summer wedding. This one is my favourite by far.

The great thing about this dress is that it is tailored made exactly for you. You can choose between a range of colours (though the pink is definitely my favourite) and because they ask you for your exact measurements the fit will be amazing! Although it's not cheap coming in at €259, you are getting a tailor made dress that nobody else will have. 

I would go for a dark navy smokey eye with this dress with a navy nail polish to contrast the pale pink and silver sandals and a silver diamonté clutch. I would probably wear my hair to the side so I could show off the back of the dress without having my hair completely up.

The final dress I loved was the Off-the-shoulder Silver Cocktail Dress. This dress is available in other colours and I would probably go for the lilac or the watermelon colour for a summer wedding. I love that this is an off the shoulder dress and nips in at the waist for a really flattering figure. As this dress is also tailor made it retails at €219 so it is slightly less expensive than the previous one. 

I think a really elegant beehive style up-do would be gorgeous for this to show off the detail at the top of the dress. Depending on what colour you picked you could choose any colour shoes to match. I would personally go with cream or nude which would match the lilac or watermelon colour nicely. I'm also currently obsessed with the Chanel perfume bottle bags......there are no words......!
