I had a blast going “dress” shopping and picking out my accessories and my hair style. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted when I started looking. But then I came across this black number that has a fun vintage feel to it like old Hollywood glamor and I was sold. I decided to pair it with simple black heels, a Whiting and Davis mesh clutch (I have been lusting for these bags for years!!!) and since I can’t normally wear a red lip I went for it in my pretend world. It all comes together nicely with a messy up-do that I’m insane about.
Now on to the date. I was going to shock everyone and bring someone else. I really thought that I could do it. But who am I kidding?? I could go to the YA Prom with no one other than my little British American in Paris, Etienne St. Clair. I imagine that he would wear a top hat and tails in a very Titanic kind of way and because he is way cool enough to pull that kind of look off. And he totally picked out a gorgeous corsage for my wrist because he has good taste.
And since a bunch of the other Prom guest have posted pictures of themselves at their proms, here is little me my junior year of high school. This dress was $15 bucks and then I spent about $30 on the wonder bra I needed. 🙂 Love my awesome gloves though. HA. FYI, I wore the same color dress (long this time) and the same kind of gloves to my senior prom. Oh the 90s, how awesome you were. 😀
