This week has been especially busy, busy, busy! I've been enjoying spring break while trying to soak up the sun that we've been getting in NYC. And I've also been busy preparing for my debut on local television! I was on WPIX 11's morning newscast delivering the weather forecast!
How cool to get to do the weather forecast as part of a school project? It was so amazing and a very memorable experience. I don't usually get nervous, but I was so nervous this time!
With that said, I'm so looking forward to another major event: PROM! I have finally decided on which dress I will wear! I'm so excited! No print. No color. It's BLACK! I decided on the strapless, Balmain-like Aidian Mattox gown! When I'm wearing it I get this whole Megan Fox vibe.
So I'm now obsessing over accessories and shoes! Choosing the perfect pieces is going to be super difficult; there are so many options!
I'm going for a glamorous, vintage-y, old Hollywood look with a dark twist. My accessory inspirations are Cruella de Vil of 101 Dalmatians, Olivia Palermo, and Miss Universe contestants. Odd mix of inspirations, huh?! I also want pieces that will be functional even after prom that can fit into my everyday life. That way, I won't be wasting money on prom-specific items that will only get used once.
I loved Nikki Reed's beautiful Ferragamo clutch from the KCA's and would love to mimic that gorgeousness! For shoes, I'm going for something blingy and strappy like Jennifer Aniston's gold heels from a recent premiere. I think I want a dramatic earring -- something vintage-feeling with a drop, perhaps? But I'm also toying with a statement necklace -- you can't do both a big earring and a big necklace for a formal event. I think Alloy's Bib necklace ($29.90) is a hip find for a major statement neck piece!
What are your thoughts on accessories? Are you inspired by the red carpet? Are you buying new? Borrowing from someone? Tell me what you're doing!
