Prom. You're either counting down the days and the diamantes, or pushing through the rails to find the only decent dress that doesn't look like it belongs on 'my big fat gypsy wedding'. I'm the first kind, kinda obvious for a fashion blogger, I know. I just like the fuss of it all. All the effort that goes into preparing one special outfit that makes you feel like a princess.

For year 11 prom, I chose my shoes over a year in advance and my Mum made the dress for me months beforehand. But this year, I found a dress I quite liked on ebay and hastily bought some shoes that looked like they might match and a neon bag that didn't go, but I loved it all the same. I think that this year, for my year 13 prom, even if I was less prepared, I felt more confident in myself, like even though I was dressed to the nines, I still looked like me and that hopefully shined through.

  5. gorgeous gown, girl! My prom was many moons ago, but I'll tell you what I'd be wearing for SURE if I was going again... my little PortaPocket! :) those cute purses are fun but who wants to babysit that bag all night. I'd keep incidentals in my purse and WEAR what I really need (like ID, lipstick, tampon, $ etc). Be safe and have FUN!
