Unfortunately, money is still tight around these parts, so I’m remixing a lot of pieces I already own and wearing some special pieces I’ve saved for “the right occasion” that haven’t been worn yet. For prom, I’m finally going to wear a vintage dress I thrifted several years ago that I’ve never worn out of my closet. However, it doesn’t stop a girl from dreaming about what she’d wear if she had disposable income and great taste (at least I’ve got one of the two!).
Dressing for any event, I battle with how I want others to perceive me upon first impression. With each dress option, I assume a different persona. Here are a few I might have worn if I had the funds.
I’ve been lusting after this dress for about a million years. It reminds me of the dress Taylor Swift wore on New Girl, and y’all know how much I love to dress like Taylor Swift. I love the super sweet pinks, golds, and creams of these pieces. I think this outfit says: I’m a vintage-loving sweetheart who loves movie nights and fresh flowers.
*This dress literally sold out while I was building this blog post. Similar here.
Stepping way out of my comfort zone here, but I pull up this dress every time I go to the Topshop website. Where I would wear it, I didn’t know until prom, but this might be the perfect opportunity to step out of my box and into a wild print with edgy accessories. If I wore this look, I’d feel like: the girl who has a super amazing self-started career in PR by day and leads her pack of friends downtown for a night of karaoke and dancing by night.
What are you wearing to TxSC Prom? I can’t wait to connect with you there!
