Prom and College

I'm staring at my calendar and noticing that there are literally 2 weeks or so left of school! I have this week which is packed with awards + ceremonies at night and senior skip day on Friday. The following Monday, I have a trip followed by another potential skip day and then that Saturday is prom!! The fact that prom is coming up so soon scares me especially since I have little planned out! Not only do I not have much ideas of what I will be doing with my hair, I also have very little clue of where and who I will be with prior to prom! It's quite stressful to think about, but I hope that whatever I choose to do, it'll be a lot of fun and a great way to wrap up my senior year!

not too sure why my screen is a bit green here.. but the back os just BEAUTIFUL
Sexy Long One Shoulder Dress by Atria
Excuse the mirror!
So I was contemplating whether or not I wanted to share a picture of my dress with my body in it. Last week, I had a picture of a snippet of the dress on the hanger. Well I actually can't resist and I've decided to post a *semi low quality* photo taken on my phone. This dress literally fits me like a glove.. (thanks gosh because taking it to get altered wasn't an option for me..) and I love the way it looks.
The dress is a rich red color. It's pretty simple in the front, but the back is what sold the dress to me. It's backless and has two strands of crystals going across. The neckline is very unique as well. It's so different in fact that it took me ~10 minutes and the help of my sister to figure out how to put it in correctly! You bascially have to put your arm and head through a weird hole and then wrap the sleeve across you back haha! The final result is beautiful though! 

Kenneth Cole reaction Prom

For the shoes for prom, I've decided to reuse a pair of heels that I had worn before. In fact, I actually wore this pair to my junior prom last year! I honestly haven't worn them again since then except for maybe one or two occasions so they are pretty new still. The interesting thing here though is that I just tried the heels on and it feels that either the heels have gotten bigger or my feet have gotten smaller? I have a tendency to have swollen feet so maybe my feet were swollen when I got them last year ! 

Pure Ice Bare It All

I think I've already decided on my makeup which will be a gold smokey eye and possibly false lashes or lots of mascara? For my lips, I think I'm going to go with a nude or light pink lip. I thought about a red lip, but I decided against it since I didn't want to overpower my dress. Plus I find red lips to not look so flattering on me. I'm still lost on jewelry and bags, but I do plan to stick along with the gold theme and get a gold clutch and some gold earrings probably. 
For my nails, I've already got a polish ready! It's a color called "Bare it all" from Pure Ice. Originally I was going to use a metallic gold color on my nails, but when I tested this color out on my nails, I feel in love. The color is gold, but it also has lots of pieces of glitter in it!! 

Iphone 5c case

This next item is a bit random, but I am very excited to have gotten it! You may know that I got an iphone a while back and I have been looking for a case for it for the longest time! I was limited by phone color choice and ended up choosing a blue phone though I secretly wanted a pink one. I knew that I would be able to get a pink case for it so that is why I went through with the blue. 
The phone I got was an iphone 5c and you do not understand how hard it is to find a case for the 5c!!! Everything in the stores was for the 4, 5, or 5s and those do not fit a 5c. I was going to get a pink outterbox for it, but I just didn't like the way it looked. It was a struggle to find a case so when I saw this case, I was super excited! This case is 100% me!! 

Uconn drawstring bag

It's hard to believe that I will be a college student soon, but it's starting to feel a lot more real after orientation! Orientation itself was a bit boring with all the speeches, but it did give me a better feel of what college life is like compared to high school.
I was able to set up my own schedule and it seems that I have a lot of "holes" in my day where I don't have classes. Another plus is that my first class usually starts at 9am (I have one at 8am), but anything is better than having to wake up at 5! Picking the classes themselves was also a bit hard for me since I am slightly undecided of what I want to do. I have a few things that I'm interested in, but I keep seeming to switch back and forth which makes things hard. I told my group one thing, but inside I'm still very on the edge. haha. 
It's hard because I feel like I keep getting told that I need to major in something science or math related to increase my chances of finding a job, where as I have little interest in most of those majors, but at the same time, I realize I can't major in something "useless" and come out with no job at all...
Basically what I'm just trying to do now is get my gen eds out of the way and hopefully figure out my plan of study for sure before the start of sophomore year.

Uconn water bottle

Uconn T-shirt

So I couldn't leave orientation without some college gear! I picked up water bottle as a "prize" for participating in the morning fun run. I signed up for it thinking that it would be a great time to make friends. Well, I actually regretted signing up, but there was no turning back since the staff came around and woke me up around 5:30! I was a bit tired, but the run was fun and getting the water bottles was a plus!
The pink t-shirt I got at the co-op and it's actually my first uconn clothing piece! I was about to get just a regular t-shirt, but then I saw shirts in various colors! The shirt was made for kids.. so it had a slightly odd fit on me, but I could not resist the pink!! Therefore, I picked up the shirt in a light pink size XL haha.


When it came to picking your majors, how did you make your final decision? Did you go for one that was safe or a major that you loved?
What is your current phone case?
Any ideas for hair and jewelry to match my prom dress? =)

  8. get a major (and eventually a job) that you love! the corporate world is chaotic so you really have to have a passion for what you do. :) good luck on college! and oh, the dress. maybe tie your hair into a gorgeous bun or something, then dangling earrings and bangles. :)

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes to the dangling earrings and possibly the bun!
      Thank you for your advice!! I;m going to try and find a major/job that I love because I know it's hard out there and this is the rest of my life!

  10. Your dress looks lovely *o*! I hope you have fun at prom!

    Oh my gosh, I remember my freshman year of college. I had an 8:30am class and thought, "Well I used to have to be at my high school by 7am, so 8:30am shouldn't be too bad!" I was so wrong and it got to the point that by my junior year, I refused to take a class earlier than 12:30. That's me though, I think you'll be better than that XD;
