DIY prom / party outfits and make-up

Share

it’s a Mr. Kate prom! i know, i’m too old to go to Prom, but i know a lot of you are going so here are some looks that hopefully will inspire you for your prom ensembles. for those of us that are past our prom… ha, not prime of course, these looks could easily be interpreted for dress-up party options! …oh, and yes, that’s a real retainer that i had made for this movie… and how dreamy is Joey!?

i love thinking outside the box for Prom. when most people are wearing floor-length gowns, opt for a cocktail length or maybe something with an interesting silhouette (like the tulip dress) or an interesting fabric (the pleather one). and why not do something fun with your make-up (like the cling-wrap mask), you only go to Prom once!…or is it twice?
