It’s prom season, you can tell. Everyone is all in a tizzy about dresses, buzzing about limos, and getting distracted from school. I hear it’s worse in the states, but people here are pretty excited. Well, most anyways. A surprisingly large number this year are reflecting my sentiments on the issue: not such a big deal. Maybe it has something to do with the recession, but there seems to be a definite shift in priorities in my grade. We originally were going to rent a floor of a hotel for all the graduates, but that fell through. People have much less of an excited attitude about the night (more pessimistic, some might say)..And I, among a couple others (the minority) bought dresses for quite cheap. I think mine takes the cake, however, for price.
It’s from Charlotte Russe, some american store (most of the things are quite cheap & cheaply made), however for a prom dress I will wear only once, it’s perfect. It is so cute, and now I can get some fierce shoes, since it was only…30$! No kidding. Take a peek.
Ain’t it purdy? I know. I love it. It looks quite nice with black shoes, so I’ll have to be on the lookout for some hot ones.
Also when I was in the States, I picked up a BEAUTIFUL purse, which will suit me very well in the summer months. It is canvas and faux leather and beautiful because it looks a) summery and b) very similar to the beautiful equestrian Tory Burch boots I have been lusting after for a while and will never get. Both below, lust with me!
Anyways, I picked up a couple more beauties, but the bag is the best. I used it today and am already in love!
