dress: bazar. shoes: dsw.
Finally, an outfit post! School has been ridiculously overwhelming these past few weeks. I only have two weeks left, but I have more homework than ever, which means that I have been spending my days in my uniform and pajamas. A thrifting day with friends and food was exactly what I needed. The highlights of my day were eating at Penny's noodle shop, taking an obscene amount of jumping photos, eating the best cupcake I've ever had, and finding the most perfect prom dress.
Alright so I have a little prom dress story for you. Last year, I actually did the whole prom dress shopping at an actual prom store. Although it was an interesting experience, a room full of crazy teens trying on extremely revealing dresses is really not my style. This year I told myself that if I was going to prom, I was going to wear a beautiful vintage dress. Last week, I found a orange/salmon flowy dress that once belonged to a ballroom dancer. I bought it right away because I knew I wasn't going to be at any other great vintage stores before prom. But while I was in my grandmother's makeup room last night, I finally tried on this amazing 20s flapper that has been on her mannequin for years. I always thought it was the most beautiful dress, but it looked way too small. But guess what? It fit perfectly! I fell in love immediately, and what made my evening even better is that my grandma found my great grandmother's (Grace, of Grace and Viola) jeweled headpiece. She wore it to a dance in the 1920s and now I get to wear it to my prom. The whole thing just worked out so perfectly. But now I do not know what to do with my first dress. Is anybody in the market for a vintage gown?
Until next time, Mandy
