Last night, much to my delight, work held a prom night party. Growing up with American television shows, I always wished I had the chance to live out the American high school experience complete with prom, so this was a dream come true.
Of course, the dilemma is always what to wear. I considered buying a new dress (top of the list was the Bec & Bridge cloud print shift) but I thought I shouldn’t spend my money on something I would wear once or twice - see, I can be a practical shopper! So I went for the the two pieces sitting in my wardrobe just waiting to be worn: my Dion Lee top (in its full glory) and my Ellery skirt. I didn’t think navy and metallic would be a winning combination but somehow it all fell into place. I’d say I had a pretty banging outfit but my parade was rained on by a girl who wore the sequin fishtail Aje dress... *jaw drops* I know right?
My prom night was complete with a corsage (I had to nudge Jack in the right direction), my best friend in a strapless Lover dress, a ride in a Hummer limousine, riding with our heads stuck out of the sunroof and photobooth photos. Unfortunately I didn’t win prom queen so that fantasy will remain unfulfilled - I promise you if I did I would have made some emotional speech like Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls, break the crown and throw pieces out into the crowd.
I wish I could have taken better photos for you all to see, but I’m sure these pieces will be making more frequent appearances on my blog. If you’re not already, feel free to follow me on instagram (username: _melissao)
