Last Minute Prom Feed?


Just had a thought about the prom goers out there! Hello!!

I read somewhere that some girls plan their prom dress a year ahead of the event...if not more! However, from my experience, prom was literally a week after exams. So a lot of my friends were busy revising for the months before it happened, thus, had no choice but to shop last minute for that one prom dress. Sometimes clutches and shoes as well if they had time. Personally, I didn't stress about it. However, for those of you in THAT situation, or, have a last minute event to go to..Here are some looks I've "curated" that you can buy on from my minipopup shop. They're eclectic, ranging from quirky to dark. Leggooo!

BELLELEGANT-EDGE

Alberta Ferretti: Tiered Silk Gown (US $4140), Alaia: Leather lace up leather sandals (US $2915), Dolce and Gabanna: Embellished woven clutch (US $2466), Sveva: Clorofilla Necklace (US $1177)




If you've noticed, I'm not one for the typical satin pink/blue/whatever gown a lot of girls gravitate towards. I don't believe you should have to spend so much on something you can't really wear again. From listening to some of my ex classmates talk about their past prom gowns, I was shocked to discover that they spent the same amount of money as a Dolce & Gabanna gown on their own satin disaster. Also, prom dresses don't necessarily need to be long despite popular belief! It doesn't make you look any better. The best thing is to bring your smile and personality, and that makes you ultimately look great!

Hope these unprofessional collages inspire some of you that need to go to prom or an event anytime soon :/

Wearing:
Kimono Top - Given by a friend
Top/Dress - Daydream Nation
Skirt - House of Holland
Bangle - Daydream Nation
Ring - Given by my parents
Shoes - Bershka
Necklace - Penang
Earrings - Starfish Project

Here's a look that I wore on Sunday, where I decided to trade my comfy sneakers/trainers worn during the entire day, for heels specially for this blog post.

Consequently, I was approached by Kendra Thornton to participate in a style challenge, whereby, I had to create a style board and outfit to inspire her on what to wear throughout a Las Vegas "Sin City" girls night out. Here is the task in full detail, alongside my board.

Hence, I chose to style a flare skirt by House of Holland, with a Kimono top and sleeveless dress by Daydream Nation underneath, wearing leopard print heels. The reason being that you can be both "classy" and night out ready at the same time so efficiently. Once you've had a nice, fancy, elegant dinner in Vegas, all you'd need to do after to prepare for a fun night out is take the skirt off and keep the short dress underneath on. It's simple and no time would be wasted!

Thanks Kendra!
