PROM: Shoes Galore | Shoe Inspiration 2015

Hi there! People talk a lot about finding the perfect dress to wear to prom, so much that shoes don't really get any attention at all. While they might not be as important when you're wearing a longer dress, having nice shoes for a shorter one or a long one with a high-low hemline is essential. I curated a list of my favourite shoes to go with that special dress of yours.

Sunday Funday: April 26/15

Hi there! This past week that I let myself have off from blogging has been quite refreshing. Not in the sense that I don't enjoy blogging and it was a relief not to have to do it for a week, but because it gave me time to think about my blog, where I want to go with it, and how I'd like to change it to improve it. It's also made me realise just how important it is to me and how much more time I want to invest in it instead of the half-hearted blogging I've been doing for what's felt like way too long.

School has been pretty chill the past week, so I've been planning out my blogging schedule in class whenever I have some free time, and I'm really excited about the upcoming posts. The days are getting longer and the weather's just getting nicer, so I'm hoping to be able to use those two things to motivate me to build better habits and work harder with everything that I do.

Just a Little Break

Hi there! I just wanted to let you guys know that I`m just completely swamped with work at the moment, so I won't be able to post until next week probably. Just thought I'd let you know instead of leaving you all hanging...

Thank you so much for reading!

Sunday Funday: April 12/15

Hi there! It's been quite the week for me. I was so productive in some ways and so unproductive in others. Translation: I barely touched my school work (which wasn't pressing, but I should've), but I finished my dress for the Taylor Swift concert! So basically, I'm really happy and proud about that.

The week before, I stayed up until between 11 to 1 in the morning every night working on my magazine (more on that in a second) and this week, I did the same, except I was working on the dress and slaving away in my sewing room. I made some very smart decisions, I know. I somehow didn't fall asleep in any classes, but I did had much more noticeable mood swings, aha, going from grumpy to enthusiastic, so there was that.

Down below is a quick peek at the dress, but it's still not 100% done. I have to fix the zipper and fix up the sash a little bit, but I'm proud of how my 2nd ever creation turned out. I will most definitely show you guys how the final costume turns out along with the posters that B and I will be carrying with us to the concert.

Style Diary: Can It Just Feel Like Spring Please

Hi there! This is only my second Style Diary of the year which is both surprising and not because I've always been a wimp when it comes to the cold. I mean, I won't dress appropriately for the weather all the time, don't get me wrong, but I couldn't seem to muster up the courage to head out in the cold in too-little clothes to take some photos of myself.

Thankfully, yesterday, my little brother was kind enough to spend two minutes (literally, I'm not exaggerating) outside with me to take these super quickly. It's funny because just on Tuesday, I was so excited because it was getting so warm where I live and then the day after it snowed. Like full out snowed. IN APRIL. I was outraged.

It was still cold on Thursday when he took these, hence the crossed arms which you'll find just after the jump.

PROM: Top 5 Stores to Shop + Mini Update

Hi there! First off, apologies for being totally MIA this past week. The deadline for the online fashion magazine I run at school was coming up and I spent hours upon hours on that thing. We had to do a last-minute photoshoot (which turned out really well and I'm super stoked for) and I spent quite a while editing and just perfecting it. I'm just so proud of how it turned out. I'll attach a sneak preview of a photo (and the cover!) at the very end of this post.

Anyway, getting on to what this post is really about, prom season is coming up and it's just all over blogs and websites. Actually, I've even heard that some people have already had their proms which I think is kind of crazy. So you need a dress.

I think I speak for the majority of girls when I say that we want our dress to be unique and make us feel freaking gorgeous. Keep reading for a few options of where to shop, both online and in-store.
