Lady like

You may be wondering why on Earth would I post pictures from my prom day when first, it was a year and a half ago and it is winter now. Well for the past about half an hour I have been going through all pictures, I found the ones from my graduation and I remembered how much fun I had searching for the dress I wanted. The thing was that I really really wanted a nude, creamy color short dress. I really wanted to make it myself but of course like every other time I have an idea about something I want to make I could't find the fabric I wanted and when I say this I am seriously talking about that I even went and looked for fabric for drapes and I could not find what I was looking for. Here you might think I was probably looking for some crazy thing with a crazy design but no, I wanted a simple light beige silk and chiffon fabrics. After about a week after I gave up and started looking just for a fabric that I liked and was good to be made into a prom dress I was at the mall with my best friend at the time and we went to a store called New Yorker. I like shopping there because they have a good mix of basics and interesting stuff and the quality you get for the price is very good. So we are looking around and I see this dress and I say to my friend 'that dress is almost exactly what I want', I tried it on and fell in love with it and I mean that, even now this dress is one of my favorite things I own, and guess how much was it. About 35$ or 25 EUR. Yes that much, and giving that I did my make up and hair for the occasion, with the shoes and the bag I spend under 150$.
So moral of the story is you don't necessarily need to spend a ton of money to look and feel amazing on your special day.


  1. Super-lovely dress & perfectly styled. Flawless!

    Best, Jenny

  2. It's a lovely dress and a great outfit. I know, it's always hard to find the fabric you imagined, I had the same issue last year.

    Have a great weekend,
