Prom 2016










I am delighted to finally be able to upload and share photos from prom on my blog. I wrote about my prom experience last year and had to make sure to write about it this year, as well. This year I went with friends and my friend Isabelle's date. 

There is a short somewhat sweet story about the dress I wore to prom. Long story short I was looking for dresses at a small boutique two months ago for my grandma's memorial and tried that very prom dress on for the fun of it. Never did I think that dress would still be there two months later for me to wear to prom. I felt like that dress was meant for me. 

Planning for prom was a headache. For about a week my friends and I were in circles trying to figure out who's house to go to, what time, who drives, and what we will eat. Personally being in the middle of plans is no fun for me. Eventually and when I say that I mean the day before we figured it all out. 

On Saturday, I drove back to Portland from Vancouver with my dad, showered once I was home, picked up Isabelle and went to Jamie's house. This is where things get funny. We ordered a pizza online and started doing makeup when half way through we hear the doorbell. Isabelle's date from Vancouver was here with her dad. We answered the door in sweats and half-done makeup. We later then drive to get the pizza, eat, and get dressed. 

My mom insisted on driving me to prom. Honestly, she might have been more excited than I was. Anyways she drove Jamie and me to prom and we met Isabelle and her date there. 

We were in the line to take photos at the photo booth when we see the principle heading toward us. "Isabelle... your dad would really appreciate it if you went to take photos." Oh, of course, our parents want to get photos of us. So being good children we walked other to where not only Isabelle's dad was but my mom as well and took let them take more photos of us. 

From there we went to the dance floor. My favorite songs to dance to were Low by Flo Rida since that song gets me pumped and Staying Alive by Bee Gees. It was just a fun time and much enjoyed because it was spent with the right people. Am I getting rambly? Yes. 

Much love, 
Vanessa

  5. You look stunning and your dress is absolutely gorgeous!!

    "Low" is my favorite pump-up dance song too! It's almost magical how one moment nobody's dancing, song comes on, everyone's dropping to the floor and busting moves. The best.

    1. Yes! It's such a good song for getting people out of their chairs. The only ironic thing is they played that at the every end of the dance.

  7. Prom! How exciting! Haha, to be honest, when it comes to planning for these events I'm always super indecisive, but once the plan is put together, it always ends up being a great night.
