I cannot quite comprehend that my prom was 5 years ago now! Whaaat!
I really wanted to share the look I had at my prom when I was 16 and do a little memory throwback for myself.
My hair was significantly shorter when I was 16 to now but I styled it pretty much the same as I still do! I had light waves (which got ruined by the rain!) but suited what I loved perfectly. My hair inspiration Pinterest board is here.
The dress I wore was a dangerous buy! It was actually shipped from China and was around £80 but I had it significantly altered beforehand by the most lovely lady. What I loved the most was the colour. (Similar colour prom dress here). It was quite different to what a lot of other people had worn in previous years and I liked how it complemented my hair. I have linked some gorgeous prom dresses from ASOS below:
Myself and my then boyfriend (Thank you Charlie for your permission to post this!) Can we just take a moment to appreciate my fantastic tie and dress colour matching?! My dad drove us to the venue in an Aston Martin Rapide which was just totally amazing and a fantastic experience.
My handbag was from Accessorize and I still have it to this day! I remember it being reasonably affordable, under/around £20. I have linked some prom bag styles from ASOS below:
This is the only photo where you can see my shoes! I wore cream wedges because I was terrified of standing on and consequently ripping my dress but the rain destroyed these so much that they were sadly binned afterwards! I remember them being from New Look but I l have linked some prom shoe styles from ASOS below:
I hope you enjoyed this little throwback to my prom which I still cannot believe was 5 years ago now!
What was your prom like?
