Brocade dress c/o Boohoo via their #GobalStyler campaign, Topshop "Chic" belt, Blue Asphalt denim moto jacket (similar), and Qupid ankle strap metallic heels
Confession: I never went to my high school prom because I had to take the SAT the next day. Bummer, right? Although I missed out on the opportunity to dress up and dance with my friends, I performed well on the test which led to me gaining admission to my dream college. In retrospect, I made the right decision to skip the prom. (Shame on those people who scheduled the prom right before the big test, though!)
So when this pretty brocade prom dress via British shopping favorite Boohoo came my way, I was able to have a Carrie Bradshaw moment last weekend. No limos, curfews, or awkward teenage dances were involved, and the addition of a special new belt and an old denim favorite gave the dress a personal touch.
You can get in on the Boohoo action until March 25th by going to the Boohoo Global Styler page and uploading photos of yourself wearing Boohoo in your home city to Twitter or Instagram and tagging #GlobalStyler for a chance to win a trip to a destination of your choice for you and a friend. Looking back to my high school days and the global travels I've been fortunate enough to experience since then, I'd say that a dream vacation probably beats going to prom any day. I hear Paris calling my name...
