it was 1954

Finally - the pictures of the 1950's-themed prom! I had to wait a little while for everyone to put them on Facebook and such, and I'm sure there are a lot of pictures made by different people (like teachers) that I haven't seen yet, but I've never been a patient person and I think you can get a fairly good look at The Dress:





When I saw it in Mango, in all its vintage-inspired, cream-colored, multiple-layered dreaminess, I had to have it. Even though it was €80 (more then I've EVER spent on one item of clothing). On the night I paired it up with a H&M hairpiece, vintage necklaces, Primark dotty tights and New Look shoes, and I felt pretty (like in the West Side Story song "I feel pretty! Oh-so pretty!", you know? I really hated that musical though). Of course my dress wasn't the only pretty one that night - I managed to get a few good pictures from Facebook of other dresses I loved, but there were some great outfits I didn't manage to get photos of. So there may be a follow-up of this post!




So there we went, looking all prim and proper - and then all properness melted off once we stood in the (very hot) club where the prom was held:


Overall, it was a pretty great night, though the shopping and the dressing up were the height of the festivity - but it's always like that.
