Dress / Old prom dress
Heels / Schutz
This is actually an old prom dress. Well, not my prom dress. Because I didn't go.
It was someone's old prom dress given to me. Family friends assumed I would go to prom, but I chose not to in the end. I didn't see the reason to pay so much money, and stress so much over a simple dinner. I still remember friends complaining or getting hurt over being excluded from a certain table or being kicked out of a limo. It sounded like they were paying someone to stress them out!
So I decided to stay at home, and enjoyed a relaxing evening with family. I did go down the shore over the weekend to spend time with friends (and go paintballing!), but that was the extent of my "high school prom" experience.
Even though I didn't go to prom, I still love this velvety dress. The luxurious feel of velvet just instantly says glamorous to me. It's not an everyday fabric, and I love it for that. The beaded fringe at the waist adds to the glamour of such a simple dress. If my office party hadn't been cancelled, this dress would have been a big contender. I'm not too heartbroken about it though, because now I have the chance to wear this out for NYE :)
