Since lots of girls have been asking me….To start off, this post is aimed more towards the girls who have not yet experienced a Prom. This can be a very stressful and overwhelming time for most of us. When it comes to finding the perfect dress, this is the beginning to an ongoing challenge. Most of the dresses you find in the malls are all overpriced and overdone. I mean if thats something you don’t necessarily care about, than by all means.
Last year I had two Proms to attend, which was fun but very overwhelming. I refused to wear the same dress to both and I would not settle for a dress that was to overpriced. I visited almost every Prom dress store in the GTA and I still couldn’t find what I was looking for. Thats when I started looking into getting my dresses custom made, because clearly I was having some issues. This is something I should have considered right from the beginning. My mom and I had found a local designer named TIZZ, and had no idea what the outcome would be. But when everything was complete, I was very happy and impressed. I really recommend getting someone to make your dress, if you have something different and specific in mind. I got both dresses made for the price of one at any prom dress store downtown. I was more than happy with both of my dresses and they fit me perfectly.
As for makeup and hair, I really recommend just doing it on your own. I am super picky and most of the time, I am not satisfied with how other people do my makeup. It doesn’t help that I am pale so there is not to much you can do for me. I got my makeup done at the MAC @ Scarborough Town Centre for one of the proms and ended up redoing it when I got home. I was not pleased at all with the outcome for how long it took to apply and how much it cost. For both proms I did my own hair because my dad is a hairdresser and I had all the tools at home. I really recommend spending a little more money and buy the products to do it yourself.
Hope this helped a bit 🙂
Enjoy your proms!
