Prom queen (with Shoes Of Prey)

#teenvogue // Trousers c/o Boohoo , Forever 21 tank, Chanel bag and shoes c/o Shoes Of Prey (designed by me)

We don't have Prom here in England, well, most of us don't. There are the few lucky souls who's schools decide to be cool and host one, mine does not. I think this may be a good thing though, it would save me the awkward moment of showing up in a female equivalent of a tuxedo, potentially (hopefully!) matching my date (if I could scramble up enough grace and ladylikeness to get myself one). Therefore, when Shoes of Prey asked me if I could come up with a Prom inspired outfit for y'all- my American half screamed YEAH, my Danish half screamed YEAH...and then England screamed LOL WE DON'T HAVE PROM HERE. So this post is dedicated to my American readers and all the countries who realize that all a girl really wants is a prom after she's been slaving away at exams for the past two years.
And if I'm being brutally honest, would I really turn down the opportunity to a big puffy princess dress just to annoy/match/embarrass my date? I don't know, but maybe if I move to America when I'm 30 and pretend to be 15 and crash a prom, we will find out.

  1. I have prom at my school but my year 13 one is called a 'ball' to make it sound more sophisticated! I posted the shoes I'm wearing on my blog :) I love this outfit, the top is pretty x

  5. It's a shame you don't have prom because I'm pretty sure every school I know in the South East of the UK have it! It's more of a toned down event though compared to American proms. I'm talking short cocktail dresses and huge gaggles of girls going together rather than having a 'date'. I enjoy them hopefully you'll be able to go to an event like them soon :) ~ox

    My school is one of the cool schools that give us a 'prom' but it's gonna be on a riverboat on the Thames. And of course I'm wearing a jumpsuit just to be difficult (I got talked out of waring a female tux D:)
