Looking Back At My Last Prom

Looking Back At My Last Prom

Recognise these shoes from my last post?!

So with my Prom (Summer Ball) coming up in only a couple of days now I thought that it would be cute/funny if I looked back at my last Prom (at the end of year 11) and shared some photographs with you.

I think year 11 is when you are still kind of in that awkward stage, well I certainly was anyway! I had braces which I was told would be off before Prom but sadly had to stag on a whole year after that. You may also notice that my hair is a lot darker, almost back and not really very natural. This is because several months prior to Prom I started using a hair lightening spray in my hair with the hope of achieving that naturally sun-kissed look. However the product was meant to make blonde hair blonder and as you may have guessed I am and always have been brunette. Turns out this product did really lighten my hair, just not to the colour that I was hoping for. My hair ended up turning a strawberry blonde/copper/ginger colour which really didn't suit me and I really didn't like. So had my hair dyed back to something close to my natural colour, which then came out a lot darker than I expected! Thankfully during the summer my hair did lighten a lot in the sun but with prom being at the beginning of summer it means that in all the photos I have very dark hair!

My dress was this one from French Connection which I found while shopping with my mum and my friend. I thick it was the first strapless dress that I ever wore and I was so nervous about it because at that point I still didn't really have very much to hold it up with (if you get me!). But I still really love this dress and it does still fit me so it definitely was a good investment.

So I hope that this little post has made you smile! I feel like I've changed and grown up so much since these photos were taken two years ago. But I'm super excited for my Year 13 Prom this Saturday and I can't wait to do a post on it afterwards showing you all my dress, accessories, hair and makeup. And maybe you'll have to come back to this post and do a little comparison! xx
