My Little Black Dress

Whooo, It's May already!! That means everything senior and college related is coming up.. including an overnight orientation, AP test and prom!! There's a lot to do actually before orientation such as a set of quizzes about the college and a math placement exam and you all know that there is a lot that needs to be done with prom!! I actually don't know what to put my focus on more right now, but I'm thinking that I need to take it one thing at a time even if it means putting prom off.. haha. There is no way I can work on my college test, studying, at staring at prom dresses at the same time!!

I want to write so much more about all these upcoming events, but I will save it for my post on Wednesday after my Calc exam (ekk) since I'll have more time to ramble on! My post today is going to be another outfit post! I know I've done a lot recently, so I promise an update post instead for Wed. I'm super excited to do it since I have sooo much to write!
For today's post, I have a dress that was sent to me from Tmart! I also wanted to experiment a little bit with my look today.. maybe you guys can pick up on it? I'm curious to what you guys think.. haha

Short Black Bridesmaid Dress
 Haha, again, I don't really know what I was thinking when I chose this item.. It was before spring break/college visits and I think I had prom on my mind which is why I chose such an interesting dress. This dress is labeled on the site as a bridesmaid dress and it is actually would make a nice one! This one shoulder dress is made of a stretchy material and features an adorable flower on the side. The fit of the dress is on the tighter side, but no fear since it is super stretchy. When I got the dress, I saw how small it was and I was like, this will never fit on me!.. Well it did!! This dress is so stretchy and soft I promise!

So as you may already have noticed, I'm not wearing my glasses in these photos!! Since prom is coming up, I have been considering getting contacts, not only for prom, but for college!
I was a bit hesitant to go without glasses since my eyes are somewhat nonexistent. (and the strong winds today did not make it any better!) I'm not sure how I feel about the way I look except I notice my glasses tan lines haha. I think I do like myself without glasses though since it gives me more freedom with my makeup, but it's kinda scary for me since I'm just not used to it! What do you guys think?

Tmart Dress Review

Forever 21 Jewelry

One of my favorite things about this dress are the flowers on the shoulder! I love how they add to the look of the dress and the position of them is really nice in my opinion. This dress is a perfect little black dress for a night out! Along with this dress, I wanted to keep my jewelry lighter with this dress so I chose to wear just a heart bracelet and a dangling key necklace.
For my shoes, I found it appropriate to wear a pair of heels!

I'm a bit hesitant with this photo.. There's no posing or editing or anything.. it's just me smiling haha
Hmm now that I'm looking through the photos, I think I look okay without glasses! It's different so I might go and get contacts!! I do want them for college and prom! I think it'll take some getting used to and to feel comfortable, but contacts does make it easier for sports and I can experiment more with my eye makeup.. haha I'm just rambling now, but I think contacts are worth a try!

It's back to studying for me! I have a test tomorrow afternoon and I feel somewhat confident about it! I'm actually terrified for my calc exam though later this week... it's not going to go well!!

Do you think I look better with or without glasses? Should I go for contacts for prom?
What is your opinion on the dress?
Do you have anything going on this week?

  4. Mindy~ that dress is gorgeous on you! You're such a hottie! Plus, the necklace is really cute,too :) Good luck n your Calc exams and all those sorts of stuff!! Ugh, I wish I had another year before I graduate from high school since there's soo much to do, and I'd rather be blogging, haha. I'm near sighted and I'll definitely be wearing my contacts for my graduation! You look great with and without glasses, but I think you should go for contacts for prom!! :) You'll get used to it really soon. Do message me or email me if you need advice on contacts (such as how to wear them, or anything related)! Good luck!! xx

    1. Hey Nicole! haha thanks! I try =)
      Meeh I just took the calc exam and I'm crossing my fingers for a generous curve!! Although I think I did well on my other two test so that kinda counterbalances my failure in calc!
      I am completely with you!! I wish I had just one more year of high school (sort of.. It's just mixed feelings that I'm having right now!) I want contacts for graduation definitely and maybe my college orientation haha!
      Thank you so much for the offer! I won't hesitate to message you if I need any help! =)

  6. Lovely blog! I myself need glasses but I usually wear contacts more than glasses. I find you can switch between both depending on your mood and what you are wearing. Either way, you can still look great and stylish! Bonus reason is that you have a legit excuse to wear some trendy eyeglasses available out there.

  15. Good luck on your exam! :) I can relate with you. I'm wearing eyeglasses too but I never wear those during outfit shots. :) I can't wear contacts on a daily basis because my doctor didn't recommend me to wear one so i'll just stick to those glasses forever. :( Contacts looks better on you. :) The dress? Absolutely stunning! and talking about prm, I'm really excited for you. Haha. I will surely wait for your prom post.

    Have a great day ahead! :)

  36. When I first started wearing contacts, I felt weird about it too. I thought my eyes were smaller and I had tan lines from my glasses. But you'll get used to it like I did :)

    I think you look good without glasses! I'm normally lazy and my contacts are dailies, so I only wear contacts for special occasions, but wear glasses daily since I have to sit at a computer for long amounts of time and my eyes get tired. Since you're starting a new school, why not try going without glasses? I think sometimes I use glasses as an excuse to hide behind it and be anti-social, but you shouldn't since you're trying to make new friends, right?

    Have fun at prom!

    1. You look so pretty without your glasses!! That is exactly how I feel.. my eyes look smaller without glasses lol.
      I think Iw ill be the same way when I get my contacts! I'm a pretty lazy person and If i'm not going anywhere or taking pictures, I will most likely be in my glasses haha! Yes I will be in college, so contacts here I come!!

  39. I didn't recognise you at first. It's quite a difference, but I think you look good both with and without glasses.
    If you got those contacts already, why not use them for Prom. It will be the change & you might surprise some of you school mates. Also it looks good in combo with the dress. :)

  52. I know this post is old, but I wanted to say I think you look great without glasses; glad you got contacts! I'm really proud of you for doing this post and taking these photos without glasses before you even had contacts too. Like you said, you can do makeup better without glasses and probably play sports better without either glasses or contacts, so giving up glasses was a great idea! Oh, and that leads me to a question: I'm guessing you have decent vision since you went without any correction here, so do you go without glasses or contacts at all much? Just wondering; looking forward to more posts!
