Kyla's Prom and Farewell!

Hey Promistas!
My prom day was...AMAZING! It was worth all the preparation and stress I went through the weeks leading up to it. I loved my Aidan Mattox gown (even though people kept stepping on the train) with Dollhouse studded heels and vintage-inspired costume jewelry. My makeup was natural with some faux lashes for added glam and I just got my hair blow dried -- no messy up-do to look back on and regret.

Will Kyla Make It to Prom?!?!

Heeeey there!
So it's only a few days until prom and I finally have everything, outfit-wise, figured out. My shoes are sick, with zippers up the front, my earrings enormous and gorgeous, and my handbag sparkly and sweet. I even got my boyfriend to pick a tux and discuss corsages! The only sitch?

Kyla's Prom Drams and Hair Do's and Don'ts

I am so excited to start college. I know it's still four months away, but after our weekender on campus, I couldn't be happier. But I'm still in high school and only have two months left to enjoy it. So crazy that it's almost over! In fact, it kinda means that I'm getting a little sentimental which is all the more reason that I want to leave an amazing time and lasting impression at prom.

So while prom drams is on my mind, so is my hair do. I got to see a whole lot of hair being done backstage at different shows during Fashion Week, so I'm looking to the stars for inspiration!

Last Minute Prom Preparations!
Poshing up my sis for GaGa

Dearest Readers,
It's finally here! The week of prom! Last weekend, I went to Lady Gaga's epic concert at the Electric Factory, so I feel like I've thoroughly brushed up on my dance moves. I mean, Gaga's best advice is to "Just Dance," so I may as well follow that mantra! But if dancing was my only worry, prom would be quite easy. Unfortch, with two proms in two consecutive days, I need to plan ahead for my beauty regime.

Get Pumped for Prom!

Hi readers!
There's less than two weeks until prom, and I've been feeling fab! With the weather finally warming up and spring making its elusive appearance, I am tempted to grab my largest pair of Jackie O sunglasses and a big ol' bottle of SPF 40 and break out a beach blanket to catch a few rays while jamming along to some hot hits. In order to get me pumped for my personal night of celebrity-dom, the long-awaited prom, I've compiled a pretty sweet list of Studio 54-inspired music and stylish, classic flicks.

Keep reading for my suggestions for a summery mix of glam prom-inspired flicks and tunes!
