Prom














Dress: La Femme / Shoes: Steve Madden / Minaudière: Zara / Earrings: Macy's

So... I went to prom.

Even though prom itself was so much fun, I still really enjoyed getting dressed up. From nails to hair to makeup, I was out of the house all day while my brother could sleep in and throw on his tuxedo five minutes before. Oh well... I enjoyed being pampered! I went for gold nails and a nude/pink toe to offset my Steve Madden Stecy gold foil heels. 

For makeup I went to the Clinique kiosk in Nordstrom and told them to go very minimal, but they did play up my eye makeup so my eyes popped. At the mall I also got this lovely box clutch from Zara, where I carried my touch up essentials and cellphone, my Steve Madden shoes from Nordstrom, and gold dangly earrings from Macy's. To match my earrings, my mom pulled out this pearl necklace that my Grand Per gave to me when I was a a baby.

For hair, I was inspired by this Kendall Jenner red carpet hairstyle. I was really nervous that my curls would fall out since my hair is stick straight and never curls, but my hairdresser put in some amazing product that magically made my curls stay all night!

And finally... the dress. I went to a huge prom dress store a whiles away from where I live and went in with a picture of a dress that I believed I was going to where to prom for almost a year. Unfortunately, they didn't have it in stock, so I had to search the racks. After passing over every overly bejeweled dress and trying on about ten no-goers, I finally found this amazing dress from La Femme! It's not what I pictured wearing at all, but I love it so much and am so happy that I could find accessories to go with it perfectly.

What did you guys wear to prom, or if you haven't gone yet, what would you wear?

Much love xxx Nina
