Yay!!! I've been waiting so long to write this post and now I finally can! Last night was prom, and it was so much fun! I loved being with my friends and dancing the night away. But more than anything, I loved getting all dressed up!
Choosing a dress was super difficult because I am so picky when it comes to formal wear. I wanted something classy and timeless, something that when I looked back at my prom pictures in 20 years I wouldn't say "Oh my god what was I thinking?!" I ended up choosing this gorgeous black Milly gown. Milly has always been one of my favorite labels, and I think Michelle Smith (head designer) is so incredibly talented! I love Milly because it competes with other couture labels like Rebecca Minkoff and Nanette Lepore, but it is so fun and youthful! This gorgeous gown is a racerback with a black skirt and lace overlay. The lace has silver details that are subtle and add sparkle to the skirt! This dress was the perfect combination of classy and fun. Here is an up-close view of the intricate detail of the skirt:
This dress was so perfect! It was so my style, and I know when I show my kids pictures from my prom in the future, I will not regret the dress I chose! But what's a perfect dress without the right accessories? My dress looked fabulous with my new black Christian Louboutin pumps.
My bloody bottoms made red the perfect accent color! As for jewelry, I wore gorgeous pearl and diamond encrusted earrings that were a gift from my grandparents, and I wore a jeweled silver bangle, which I borrowed from my mother. I also borrowed a black jewel studded clutch from my mother.
For my hair, I went with a simple, effortless blowout. I'm not a fan of crazy curly hair, and I (once again) wanted to keep my look timeless. I am so happy with how my hair came out! I also love my makeup. I had my makeup artist do a black and silver smoky eye for a really dramatic look!
Prom was a dream come true, and I loved spending it with my amazing friends. I went to prom with my friend, Matt (notice how we used red as an accent color):
Here are some pictures of me and my (GORGEOUS) friends at prom pictures!
We obviously had to arrive to prom in style, so we rented a white Hummer limo.
Prom was PERFECT! I had such an amazing night with my friends and I loved wearing my dress! I hope your prom was as magical as mine!
