I realize that I didn't post what I actually wore to senior prom this year (other than the dress). The photo of me in the previous post just reminded me.
The only jewelry I wore was a pair of Swarovski crystal drop earrings because the Vera Wang gown had a giant brooch on the shoulder sash. I paired it with a leather faux-crocodile clutch because I didn't want a bag that was as shiny as my dress. I wore four-inch stilettos, making me 5'5" for the night (until I took off my shoes for attempted dancing).
EverybodyIsUgly prefers to keep her hair casual for formal events (a tip I generally follow because I'm terrible with hair), but I do believe there is a way to get your hair done for prom without, well, having "prom hair". It's simple: Bring in a photo of exactly what you want your hair to look like, ask (and keep repeating) for loose curls instead of springy debutante curls, and stay away from the glitter.
Indeed, my long dress gave me difficulties in getting into the car, which my daddy has on record through photos such as these.
What did you wear to prom? Did you have any wardrobe malfunctions?
