Prom Season: The Night














My biggest regret about my prom (apart from having virtually no eyebrows, wonky false eyelashes and awful yellow tinted hair - seriously it was bad) was that I didn't wear a dress that I could wear again. My dress was lovely don't get me wrong but since then it's just sat in my wardrobe collecting dust. So I thought that to give any of you who have proms or events a little bit of inspo, I'd do a bit of a different prom feature with one of Boohoo's dresses, showing you how you can not only keep the cost of the dress down (damn they can be pricey!) but also how you can get the most out of your dress whilst still looking fab on the night itself!

So for the dress I chose this very simple black, deep V-neck shift dress. In my eyes this is perfect for an event like prom; it's chic, simple, elegant yet a little bit sexy and it really doesn't need anything more than a splash of red lippy, a few pieces of elegant jewellery and those killer heels. I'm a huge advocate of "less is more" at prom and Boohoo have the best selection of glizty, glamorous and classy prom dresses, all of which are extremely purse friendly (meaning more money to spend on the make up and jewels!) and can be worn again. 

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post in which I'll show you how I styled this dress up more casually!

  4. Same here! My prom dress was so glitz & glam - almost bordering on bridal tbh so I deffinitely can't wear that again. Without looking like a weirdo anyway. Ha. It seems a shame really... It was a beautiful dress though. You look great here, the fabric of the dress looks super floaty and flattering :-) Also loving the clutch - Miss Selfridge have a great selection of slogan clutches atm too :-)

  8. I'm in love with this look for prom xx I also think it's better 2 have an outfit/dress that we could wear for other occasions, not just prom specifically in order 2 keep the cost down. This V neck shift dress reminds me so much of Dior Cruise 2015 <3 <3 This is such a chic statement and I think anyone with this look will stand out in the crowd full of long ball gowns xx Have a great week, Amy xx

  16. So pretty! I have a really similar dress (looks almost identical), but its not from boohoo, in orange. I love it, so simple but feels really dressy! Although last time I wore it out, someone spilled BBQ chicken in my lap :O, luckily it came out haha..
