In case you missed the memo, Summer Ball is.tomorrow. But, because we know you’ve been busy whiling away the days with post-exams celebrations, catching up on BuzzFeed and recovering from serious sleep deprivation, we don’t blame you if you haven’t had chance to think about your outfit yet. Only thing is, you haven’t got long now. With just one day to go until the summery celebrations, sadly, you ain’t got to time to order from ASOS. Don’t panic. Instead, offering you a helping hand, we’ve scouted the stores to find the best that Leeds’ high street has to offer. From puffy prom dresses to classic cocktail options, to sassy bodycon styles, there’s plenty of potential for you to look your best. Just don’t put off dress shopping any longer.
Summer style is simple. It requires two things; sandals and maxi dresses. When it’s hot outside the last thing you want to do is put on a pair of jeans, so the easiest way to look stylish and still be comfortable is with a maxi dress.
Every summer I buy at least three new maxi dresses and this year while shopping I was immediately drawn to all the colorful ocean blue hues. Buying a few less expensive maxi dresses at Old Navy or Target are great for everyday but you may need one that is a little bit dressier for special events or a summertime wedding. I’ve bought plenty of those inexpensive maxi dresses and sometimes they don’t wash up as nice, shrink or the hem seams to come apart. So investing in one or two that will last for a few summers or a few great vacations is a good idea.
My favorite picks are below and while these are all around the $100 – $150 price point I think they are worth every penny. I also love that many of these come in plus size.

The Watergate Street Gallery was the 1st gallery to exhibit Kerrys wonderful art over 15 years ago! We still choose the very best of her paintings and always have 20 on display in Chester.
Congratulations to Kerry for winning the 2012 ‘Best Published Artist’ Fine Art Trade Guild award.
Kerry works with texture, acrylics and resin. She works in layers to build up depth and create more light. She uses resin as a medium rather than a varnish on the original paintings.
With her ‘Unique Editions’combine print and original art, each one is some way unique. She creates small 3D additions which are hand-worked individually and adhered to the print. The background is also hand embellished, and all the work has resin hand-applied.

Kerry Darlington‘s art is just magical, wonderful and fantastical. If you are passionate about children’s fairy tales, love your alternative landscapes or are obsessed by fictional characters such as ‘Ophelia’, then Kerry’s paintings you must consume. Winning the ‘Best-selling Published Artist Award 2012′, Kerry has built up quite a portfolio of pieces. Ranging from original paintings of 80? x 60? to smaller ‘study’ pieces measuring 14? x 14?, there is a collection to suit most tastes.
Inspired by Arthur Rackman’s illustrations, Kerry began with illustrations of stories, fairies and poetry and soon moved on to creating pieces inspired by her love of art in the 19th and early 20th century. Using modern art techniques, such as overlaying her work with resin, thus making her style so unique and refreshing.
Choosing fictional and popular childhood characters such as Ophelia, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and Enid’s Blyton’s ‘The Magic Faraway Tree”, Kerry puts her unique stamp on them all. I discovered Kerry’s work in my local art shop and gallery, Rennie’s, and felt compelled to share her extraordinary talent. Read on to find out more about Kerry.
SP: Can you tell us about the first piece of art you worked on? Was it a landscape piece? Did you base it on anything in particular?
KD: I have been painting forever, my first pieces were illustrations of stories, fairies and poetry. My first pieces for galleries were of forests and trees in an abstract manner, I would use metals and acid or anything that gave magical effects in my work.
SP: I can see the influences Arthur Rackman has had on your work, especially with the fantastical character pieces of art. What was it about Arthur’s work that inspired you?
KD: As a child I read a lot and so would see his illustrations in books. I loved the intricacy of his work, you can look at his pictures for hours and still find something different. He was an incredibly talented, skilled draughtsman.
SP: What’s your favourite landscape piece and why?
KD: At the moment it would be ‘Wild and Free’, a very atmospheric piece that is both dreamy and powerful – it takes me to a special place
