Dress - vintage, earrings - vintage via my aunt, bracelets - vintage via my grandma, shoes - Calvin Klein via Buffalo Exchange
Prom was nearly a week ago, but I'm just now finding the time to post these photos. It's been a little hectic, with a shore trip, wallowing in self-pity due to some terrible sunburn, graduation rehearsals, and whatever else.
So, I suppose I shall explain my outfit! The dress is vintage, and I've had it for years. It's miraculously fit me all along, and the second I tried it on, I knew I had to wear it to a prom. Or somewhere, but prom was the most likely option.
All of the jewelry is borrowed from my aunt - these awesome firework-esque earrings and the rhinestone bracelets which were formerly my grandma's.
And the shoes... I had spent a day in the city trying to find shoes, and came across these beauties in Buffalo Exchange for a mere $26. Unfortunately, I didn't get any good shots of them, but they're pretty versatile so don't expect this to be my last time wearing them!
Now, for some typical prom photos, since I guess that's the thing to do when you're going to prom. I went with my friend Christian, who I may or may not have mentioned on here before? He's taken a few outfit photos for me and has been one of my really good friends over the past year.
Below, pictured is Tracey and I, along with a random date lurking in the back with whom I'm not familiar.
Above, is Christian, Manny (Tracey's date), Tracey and I, being the usual goofs that we are. This pretty much describes each of us.
I didn't take many photos at prom since I was too busy dancing and mingling. I'm sort of joking about the latter - I'm a chronic non-mingler. My hair and makeup were in tact by the end of the night, thanks to my lovely friend Lauren who will soon be graduating from cosmetology school.
Within the next eight hours, I will officially graduate from high school. It's become less and less of a big deal over the past few months, but it's gaining a bit of significance as I'm going to be studying abroad in London this fall. And you know, it's sort of a big transition. I leave in a little over ten weeks, which is entirely surreal.
I hope all is well!
