The prom...

Thursday, June 14, 2012

I'm all mixed feelings right now - you know? So happy because I had the best prom ever but at the same time sad because it's all over. My hairdo is no longer lasting, I took my make up off and the dress, the heels and the accessories are neatly put in my closet. 
When I first started thinking about how I want to look at prom, I had a sliiiightly different idea than how it all actually turned out. My ultra glam dress didn't really seem so appropriate for a high school event and I decided to save the design for some other occasion. 
After careful consideration and a loooot of hours spent browsing all kinds of internet spaces where one goes to relax and dream, I narrowed my choice to the color green. The thought was to do a really romantic, but yet an edgy look. That's why when I did sketch the final design I decided that the skirt will be flowy and really simple so it won't steal the show from the corset - I loved the idea of playing with the fabric to get the draping in a way it almost looks like a braid. It took a lot of work and quite a few fittings to get the final look - my seamstress did an amazing job, as usual, and I couldn't be happier.
When it comes to the accesories - the bag was actually the first thing I bought, before the dress was even in the process of being made. I love the black and gold details and the shape is amazing - so 1920s.
After came the earrings. First I thought of black rich long earrings, but I needed to give the look a twist, and as I'm so in love with anything feathery, is there anything better than this pair?
The shoes - ohhh, another story. I found another pair online and intended to order them, but they sold out that day and were never again in stock. But, it was actually a great thing I didn't order those, no matter how insanely cute they looked. These Zara heels are much more me. When my friends saw them, they said I couldn't have found a better pair... So true!

Okay, I'm gonna stop talking now and leave you with the photos...
