Today I rewarded myself for getting into one of my dream colleges (this little girl from the Midwest is going to the East Coast!) by doing some shopping! I went to lots of stores, but only ended up picking up a few items from Love Culture. They were having a buy-one-get-one-free deal on sale items, so I spent less than $20!
I bought a pair of tassel flats (11.99) + 3/4 sleeve collared shirt (free) and a pair of buckle flip-flops (6.99) + an ADORABLE owl clock necklace (free). The flats and flip-flops look really red, but they’re actually a cute orange/coral color. The necklace is amazing! You push up the owl’s little ears to reveal the working watch :).
And…I GOT MY PROM DRESS! I went to Windsor and saw this dress and it looks SO MUCH more amazing in person:
You can find it here. The fabric actually has lots of sparkles all over! Also, since I’m so short, the back end of the dress almost touches the floor when I’m wearing 5″ heels. The top part is dangerously loose though, so when I was trying it on, I kept having to hold it up to avoid exposing … you know. My mom said that she can slim it a bit though 🙂 I will post a picture of me in it after I decide what shoes and jewelry to wear. Help me decide (click on the picture for the source)!
Option 1: Pink + Blue
At the front of the store, the dress was on display with this light blue necklace and it contrasted really nicely. My mom also loves the pink + blue color combination, especially with light pastels.
Option 2: Pink + Silver Glitter
I tried on the dress in stores with these glitter pumps and kept falling because I can’t walk in 5″ heels. I’m going to practice though! I feel like the glitter heels and silver necklace would “glam up” this sweet girl dress.
Option 3: Pink + Pearls
My most prized piece of jewelry is my multi-stranded pearl necklace from my relatives in China. I thought white heels would clash with the cream pearls, so blush colored heels matching the dress would work better. This is the ultimate “sweet girl” look 🙂
If you have time, please comment with your favorite shoes and necklace combination!
Until next time,
