Lavender & Lace (Prom Dress + Nails)

I feel like I had been waiting for prom for an eternity but just like that it came and went. It was a wonderful time full of fun and pretties. On the right here you can see me, posing awkwardly for some solo shots haha. My prom dress is a strapless high-low style in a light purple colour with a sweetheart neckline. There is a layer of white lace underneath the sheer purple overlay. It wasn't the kind of dress I expected to end up with but I really do love it. My shoes are some of the most comfortable heels I have ever worn (bonus!) since they have both a platform and a chunkier heel. I got really lucky in finding them- they match my dress perfectly! It's not in this photo but I had an Alexander McQueen look-alike for my clutch. A gunmetal colour with those cool skull rings!

For my nails I went for the simple approach. I was thinking of doing a lace pattern but being short for time I did a quick gradient instead. This look is super popular, I find. Stay tuned because I filmed a tutorial for it! (Hopefully I'll edit it before next year ;P)


I started off with Seche Chemise. I sponged on Love & Beauty Orchid, followed by a silver glitter from Love & Beauty and Nicole by OPI One Less Lonely Glitter.


I hope you liked this post! (: Quick note: I'm leaving for the cottage tomorrow with some friends so I won't have access to a computer. I have some drafted posts though, so I'll try to schedule those! Until then! xo
