Today I went prom dress shopping with my Mum and I expected to find lots of dresses and take lots of pictures to show you and feed back on but, considering my mum and I were shopping for approximately four and a half hours looking almost exclusively for dresses (we did a bit of summer clothes shopping as well, I’m going to film a haul over the weekend on my YouTube channel!) but I tried on a total of two and I didn’t buy either of them.
Both were from John Lewis, first I tried on this dress:
The dress I tried on was navy rather than ‘grape’ (purple) but it was the same design. I wasn’t sure about it, I looked okay on I guess but I didn’t fall in love – I felt it made me look kind of frumpy and I want to feel skinny and sexy in the dress I wear to prom and I didn’t feel anything more than mediocre in this dress. For that reason, we decided against it.
The next dress I tried on I did love, but it wasn’t very prom-like:
I liked it – it was tight enough that it made me feel skinny and long enough to be decent but not so long that it was an awkward length. I felt like Carrie Hope Fletcher in her beautiful red dress but with less hair and fat ankles.
I was so close to asking for the dress because I felt like Carrie but it wasn’t a cheap dress and I knew I wouldn’t actually wear it so unfortunately it was left on the rack.
But I didn’t find any other dresses at all! We went in five or six different shops but I couldn’t find anything that appealed to me – I want something sophisticated and classy but a little bit sultry, a little sexy; a bit of lace or something to make it a little different.
My prom is only five weeks away, I’m not sure whether I should be a bit nervous or not yet. If you know any (UK) sites that might have something I’m looking for please leave it in the comments!
Thank you for reading,
That’s where you’ll find me:
