my senior prom

Even though prom wasn’t that big a deal for me this year, I still wanted to post pictures and I feel like since prom happened before graduation, I need to blog about prom first no matter how significant graduation is. that is just my weirdo self talking, I know, but i’m just gonna go with it.

So as I said before, for prom I wore a dress that used to be my mom’s, it’s cute ivory lace (from JCPenney somewhere between 70’s and 80’s – crazy). My wonderful grandma (who bought the dress originally!) altered it a little to fit me better, and I added a black waist ribbon which cost me a couple bucks. I went out and bought black flats with little bows last fall to wear with this dress ($15 from Target) and I already had the earrings ($1 from Target). The gloves were an afterthought and I almost didn’t have them – I bought them the day of prom at possibly the only store nearby that had any left! I guess gloves get popular this time of year. I also had a matching black purse but the pictures with the purse looked kinda dorky so you’ll just have to take my word for it that it was cute with the dress. The gloves were $12, the purse was $15, and I bought eyeshadow for this last fall too which was like $6, and that rose in my hair was a couple dollars. In sum, I spent less than what alot of girls spend on just the dress, and looked way more unique. I consider that an accomplishment.

So enough about all that, let’s get to the pictures. (What’s funny about these pictures is that on the doorknob behind me there is a little lace heart that matches my dress, and we totally didn’t plan that.) You’ll have to click on each one if you want to see my head and then click on it again to see it bigger. I know it’s a pain, but I have trouble with the picture thing on here and I can never get it to do what I want, and this is the easiest way I know how at the moment.

Do I look like I’m from some awesome vintage era? Because that was kind of the goal, but I can’t tell since I have only ever lived in the nineties and the two thousandey years (how do you write that in numbers? 90’s and 00’s? seems odd).

Anyway, so I hope you enjoyed the pictures! Please no one stalk me now.
