The YA Prom

Posted June 25, 2014 by Andi in General / 0 Comments



Sometimes it is just fun to get dressed up and all glam. And thanks to the awesome Alexa and Gaby we have the opportunity to do just that. Welcome to The YA Prom.

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. 😀



Thanks Alexa and Gaby. This was a lot of fun. To find out more about The YA Prom and to participate, see HEREor HERE.

  1. Love the look you chose for the YA prom! That dress is gorgeous and that up-do! But look at you in the 90s!!! I’m surprised to see a short dress though. We only wore long ones in the 90s here lol.

  2. Ohhh….I LOVE your ensemble. I’m totally getting the old Hollywood glam vibe from it! Makes me happy to see another short dress 90’s prom girl! I was the ONLY girl wearing a short dress at my prom in 1994 and I totally rocked it! You did too!

    I was totally going to do my makeup and everything, too, but I spent too much time (and fake money?) on my wardrobe so…meh.

    I can’t find online photos of myself, but my real prom experience is in the post…
