I've actually been trying to post for a few days now - I promise I've had all good intentions! But my internet has been severely playing up. Highly annoying. Although it has highlighted to me just how much I rely on the internet & how much time I spend on it - crazy. I've been going mental with it not working properly!
Right anyway, hopefully it'll work long enough for me to do this :)
So, Friday was my Year 11s Prom - I work in the school, just so you know, I'm not in Year 11! So it was a lovely excuse to get a bit dolled up & have a good night - & it's SO great to see them all on that night - I love Prom! They all make SUCH an effort & they all look so gorgeous.
I decided I was going to be brave, & show you what I wore. Properly. As in, me wearing it. Urgh. Can't believe I'm about to do this..!
So here's what I went for:
That's the only full length pic of my outfit, so it had to do! I don't actually like it much - I feel like I'm leaning in a weird way, which makes my belly stick out :( I was trying so hard to breathe it in, but I obviously kept forgetting! (& the more vodka & Pimms consumed, the less I cared, gotta be honest!)
I've got a couple more photos, to show you more of the details..
That's the jewellery I wore. The ring is one of my oldest & favouritest rings - I used to wear it a huge amount, but I've noticed I wear it less frequently now I've got so damn many! So I decided it needed a reappearance. I chose the necklace because again, I used to wear it LOADS, but haven't done for AGES (like the ring). It's one I got for my 21st birthday - it's actually engraved on the back of the pendant - it says "Danielle, 21" - just in case I ever forget who I am & which birthday I got it for!
The bracelet I believe I showed you when I bought it - love it, it's so pretty. Got lots of compliments on the night :)
I also thought I'd include the next photo, so you can see the lacey shrug thingymebob a bit better:
I was REALLY glad I wore this. I've had it in my wardrobe for ages & hadn't ever worn it before. But it was just perfect for this. I hate my arms/shoulders/chubby bits - & this covered me up enough, without being too warm or too cardigany - it was pretty enough to go with the event (I thought anyway) - I would've been hugely more self-conscious if I hadn't have worn it, so I was glad I had :)
By the way, the photos cropped like it is because it has students in it - & to be honest, half of my face is quite enough anyway :p !
I've got lots more things to show you - things I've been buying.. things I've been wearing.. things I've been wanting etc. But I'll leave you with this for today.
I'll end with these pics - just to give you some idea of some of the dresses - obviously I've cropped their heads out so they're unidentifiable!
Ok, will be back soon with my more usual type of post :)
PS. I really hope the appearance of my face on this blog doesn't give you nightmares..!
