I love prom! However, this was my leavers prom as I go to University in September, it was quite emotional because I can probably count on one hand the people I will ever see again. We rented out a fancy bar in the city centre and had food etc served, we didn't want a sit down meal as it makes the ticket price too expensive. Hence why I didn't dress super prommy. The dress is long in comparison to what I usually wear on nights out. I suppose this was a 'special' night out, apart from the fact that my best friend and wing girl wasn't there, so I did feel pretty alone and not 100% myself. I can't function without my soul mate, Kates.The dress: As you can see on these photos it is RED! I wanted to go bold, I did the same at the end of high school and wore a bright blue dress. It is a herve legger style (as always, I love bandage styles!) It is very low cut but I don't see an issue with that, if people want to be nasty to me for showing cleavage I think that shows them as nasty people, not me. I know that i'm the furthest thing from a 'slut' so it doesn't bother me anymore. It didn't take me long to find a dress, I bought it online and knew it was the one as soon as I tried it on.
The lashes were expensive, £22.00 but they last up to 15x and everytime I want them reapplied I simply go into Harvey Nichols eye lash bar and they will reapply them for free - this is always great for a night out.
I absolutely fell in love with these lashes as soon as I put them on, okay they slightly look like spiders on my windowsill but they were perfectly fluffy and long, it's hard to see on these photos.
I got my eyebrows HD done, which is 8 steps to perfect brows; including tinting.
The shoes; I have given up on heels. Out of the tens of gorgeous pairs that I have, I just cannot and will NEVER be able to walk in them. I opted for wedges, I find them super comfy to walk in. I chose a nude colour because I think it makes a red dress look more classy, more 'prommy' if you like - I find black turns a red dress into a seductive outfit rather than a classy leavers outfit.My toe nails are Minx, and last for ages! I got them in this colour because I think it goes well with my french manicured acrylic nails.
I got my hair straightened by my hair dresser, I was going to wear it curly as I feel it is more classy but because we were going on a night out after I didn't want to look too 'prommy', sometimes I have the worst hair days but I can honestly say I was happy, super happy with my hair this day. I didn't get it dyed she just put a toner on it for me which creates the illusion of it being dyed, it gives it that 'white' look and really lifted my roots.
Overall I was happy with how prom went :)
