Gestuz dress, New Look clutch, Zara shoes
FINALLY A PROM POST (prom was over a month ago, woops).
I had the best time at prom. It was such a lovely evening, we started off with photos and champagne at my friend's house and then got a cab to the Hotel Russell on Russell Square which was beautifully decorated and was the perfect setting for photos yay. We had a champagne reception and photos with the photographer, then moved onto dinner and finally danced the night away until we all had to leave wah.
Now onto the dress. I actually bought this dress from the Selfridges Christmas sale on new years day when I went to see Singin' In The Rain with my sister. It's by a brand called Gestuz and was reduced from £280 to £40 (I KNOW). It's 100% silk and moves so beautifully, my favourite part of the dress has got to be the back. It's quite simple but I'm a complete sucker for any kind of back detail and skinny cami straps (as mentioned in my last post) have become my new obsession so I had to get it despite the fact that it was one size too big. But after a trip to the dry cleaners to get it altered, it fit like a glove and I just wanna wear it all over again. I did my own hair and makeup too which, not gonna lie, I was quite proud of seeing as I'm normally quite a retard when it comes to hair and beauty related tasks. I used an image I found on pinterest to do my hair (link here) and just did quite a simple make up look with a pinky-coral lipstick to finish it off.
These are a random mix of the photographer's photos and my own photos (both digital and disposable) so I apologise for the lack of 'proper' full outfit photos of my dress but hey, (I have no excuse).
Until next time amigos,
