Most people would have put in a lot of time and effort into this, judging from what I could remember of that evening. Someone turned up looking overdressed (in my opinion) like a bride, while many others looked fab in their nice dresses and coiffed 'do.
If you thought Natalia looks bridal in this getup, the Bride at my prom would trump her any day. And yes, I lurve Natalia and I have already decided should I ever have a daughter, I would name her Natalia.
Or Victoria. Because it's a regal sounding name.
Back to the story. I went in something I got a few days before which didn't fit very well, and didn't bother with anything else. My shoes killed me that fateful night, inflicting blisters on my feet/toes after just one evening of wear. I hobbled for 3 days after prom.
So basically, it wasn't all that spectacular for me. If I could go back in time, I would re-do EVERYTHING.
The first thing I would do, is to chop the skirt to this length.
Or just pick something like this. Little black dresses can do no wrong.
Well, I won't have awkward poses like this since I believe I'm no acrobat, and as such may lead to a very bad back injury.
Or this. Nothing constricting so I can breathe and eat without showing any bulges at the end of the evening.
White dresses look nice too. Definitely something different in the sea of black.
However, if you get ketchup or any sort of sauces on it, it will totally ruin your day so you might want to stay away from messy eaters and accident-prone people.
If I could go back in time, I would get nice comfy shoes and a good dress.
Oh... the regrets.
