I carefully unpacked the two dresses and held them in front of me; it looked perfect! More perfect than I could ever imagined. I removed the emballage of the golden dress and putted it on over my jeans and spinned around in front of our mirror. It was perfect and the size was fitted perfectly too. So I went to Vienna with my dream-dress carefully packed in my hand luggage and the evening was all I imagined it to be in my dream-dress. This year, I ordered again two new dresses in a little bit different style than last time; one that I will wear at the ball and one I will wear a wedding the coming summer. I am just about to decide which one to wear at what event. I will show you my decision tomorrow and give you the name of the online store.

Yes you read it right, my ball dress or ball dresses are bought online. To make a long story short, I had a friend last year who was getting married. And her budget was not made for entering the bridal shops here in Zurich so I was doing my best in helping her to find a wedding dress online and so I found the perfect online festive shop. In January last year we were invited to a winter ball in Vienna and I needed to find a dress! I never been to any similar ball before (apart from our highschool ball…) so I tried to google “colours to wear for winter ball” and “dress code for ball Vienna” but did not exactly find much; I I saw was Kim Kardashian in her rather vulgar outfit and I definitely wanted to avoid looking like her.
I decided for my favourite color cream beige and remembered the online festive shop I found for my friend. I searched for “cream beige ball dress” or maybe “golden ball dress” and my dream dress popped up. I was really thinking am I insane to “buy ball dress online” but looking at the price and comparing it with anything similar in Europe it was worth a try!
I was first a bit concerned with the sizes but as the shop offered a good size chart I measured myself carefully and realised I fitted perfectly into one of their sizes. Although they do offer customised tailoring for a little extra charge. I ended up buying my dream dress and one additional dark one as a backup plan in case the color or fitting would be wrong. 2 week later my dresses arrived from V-Bridal in my office and it felt like Christmas; I couldn’t wait to go home and try!
