Prom!

afterlight (12)

Hello my lovely readers! Get ready for the most stereotypical high school post of all time. While this post is going to be a bit more personal, I wanted to share this exciting day with you guys! This past Saturday I had my high school senior prom. It was an incredible night! I loved seeing all of my friends dressed up and looking so spiffy. We gathered around 5:00 to take pictures together, and then piled into our party bus and drove to the actual event. The venue was awesome (but I won’t be posting it on here because I don’t want to give my school away). The night ended up being filled with surprisingly decent food and lots of dancing. I hope you guys enjoy this post, and keep on scrolling for dress/hair/makeup details!

First of all, my dress (aka my love). I got super lucky last November when I spotted this baby at a designer sale (one dress, and in my size!). My friend Maddy (who you’ll see pictured below) insisted that I try it on despite prom being months away, and it fit like a dream. Thus, this $500 gown became mine for $50 (!!). The designer is Tadashi Shoji, and they sell her pieces at Nordstrom. You can also find an impressive lineup of gorgeous evening gowns on her website. On my feet, I wore strappy silver heels by Kelly & Katie, found at DSW.

I had my hair done at Dry Bar, and my makeup done at Sephora. I was beyond please with the service I got at both. The lady that did my hair at Dry Bar was so nice; she asked me exactly what I wanted (I got the Mai Tai!) and took my hair type into consideration. I have very limp hair that loses volume/curls easily, but the way she curled it kept my hair looking great until 3 AM the next morning. As with my makeup experience at Sephora, I was not only beyond pleased but also had so much fun while getting my makeup done! A girl named Danny did my makeup, and was so sweet. I came in with pictures of Blake Lively’s natural look for inspiration, and she just took it from there. Then a second girl came over and applied 20 individual lashes to each eye. The work she did was flawless! If you have any product questions, leave them below and I’ll be happy to answer. 🙂

And meet my best friends! I love them to death and I think we all looked amazing. 🙂
