Hello beautiful people of the internet
Ever since watching American movies, attending a prom dance has been a big dream of mine. During my exchange year, this dream came true. I had my first and last prom yesterday. The preparation that goes into planning everything is crazy, dress, hair, makeup etc, there's so much to think about.
I knew I wanted a white dress but finding one was way harder than I thought. I ended up getting this white, strapless a-line gown from David's bridal, they had a great selection and good prices. For accessories, I found these gorgeous earrings at Topshop ( link here ) and a bracelet & hair pins at Clair's here. Shoe wise I wore these pale pink velvet heels from Forever 21 ( similar here ) to add a pop of color. The day of prom I ended up getting a simple clutch from Express ( similar here ) that goes with the heels.
I got my hair done at Devoted Salon in the Midland mall, they lady taking care of me was really sweet and talented, she made sure that I would get just the hairdo I wished. I recommend this salon to everyone, it is my go-to place for hair and I always leave devoted super satisfied. The look we did was a half up half down with lots of volume and curls. To add some sparkle she put in 3 pins on each side. Simple and elegant.
I did my own makeup starting off with the basic face makeup, for the eyes I used the sweet peach palette from Too Faced ( read all about this palette in my last post here), lashes from Ardell in 117 ( here ) and for lips the Tarte ''Limited Edition Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint''
Now to the prom itself, before heading to the location I meet up with a group of people at a park to take pictures, from there we drove to the actual place where we had dinner and then the dance. Our prom theme was '' Old Hollywood '' which I personally found a great idea.

I'm so happy I got to experience this american tradition and dress up for a night and I'm thankful for each and every one of you who made it possible. My time in the US is almost over but this day will be remembered for sure. I have to say, this prom had a lot of ups ( and some small downs) but it was perfect just the way it was.
Have a week
