Well hello again my trusted friends!
I am here, in the flesh, through a laptop, cyberspace, and a whole bunch of coded numbers and letters and special characters to report to you, my dear reader, the events of PROM! It was so fun, it’s always fun, it’s prom!
#1: The Dress
If you read my last posts, there were some dresses I was between wearing and I ordered one of them. It became a debacle when the company sent me a size too small in the dress I ordered and AFTER I sent it back, they told me they were out of my size. This happened on Monday and I had prom on Saturday. Luckily my mother is quite fashionable and I wore a Neiman Marcus gown she already owned.
My BFF and hair stylist, Ben, really pulled through on this one. I decided the night before that I wanted to get my hair done (though I usually always do my own hair for events). I texted Ben and he happily complied he could style my hair, which was amazing because usually salons are booked around prom. He curled it and pinned it half-up and half-down with a little poof on top, which sounds totally 80s but it was not at all. unfortunately I didn’t have long enough arms to get a pic of the back of my head 😉
I was really proud of my makeup, which as always, I do myself. I often do my friends’ makeup for events, and if you live in my area contact me anytime if you want someone to do your makeup! I went for a really dramatic look here with silvery-blue undertones in the eyeshadow.
My lil’ gang came over to my house for pictures, and we took pictures on the grass area in my neighborhood. My friends are photogenic, what can I say?
#5: Dinner and Dance
Dinner was delish and the dance was sensational. Our dance was at a night club with a dj, confetti, strobe lights, and all. I’m at a loss for words to describe how phenomenal it was. I could dance all night, every night, for the rest of my life. Willingly, I would do this. More than willingly actually– I want to dance in that environment all the time every day. I didn’t want to leave, and when my friends dragged me out of there I was dripping in sweat. A disgusting detail maybe, but it enhances the mental image. Why would anyone not want to dance all day everyday? I think you get it, I LOVE dancing.
#6: After Party
The after party is like a deep breath, relaxing with just your friends after a crowded night bumping into people from here and there and Timbuctoo. I didn’t really need to put that in here, I just wanted to say Timbuctoo.
#7: After After Party
If this is not the definition of eternal prom I don’t know what is. The next day, my friends and I went to my date’s house. It was so elegant yet contemporary, it looked like you had just stepped into a Veranda Magazine house. We hung out in the pool and jacuzzi and around the outdoor fire place, conversing, playing pool basketball, and tanning. A spa couldn’t have been any better.
Prom should be every weekend. I’m starting a petition.
