So the ball is over and it's honestly the weirdest feeling ever - what more is there to look forward to?! But I had such a great time and it was a wonderful night.

Let's get into the outfit details shall we?







As previously mentioned in the first installment of my prom series, I got my ball dress from a darling little vintage store here in Perth called 'Oh Henry Vintage'. They are located in Northbridge and honestly have the nicest vintage pieces so naturally after the first visit in store, it quickly became one of my favourite stores. My sister initially got her ball gown from there and I remember seeing this dress and thinking it was beautiful but at the time it was still quite early for me to get my ball gown. Flash forward a few months, Oh Henry Vintage had a big two day sale to clear some stock and I went both days because I'm a keen bean, nonetheless I'm very glad I did because in the last hour on the second day everything was marked down to 5 dollars, which was how I managed to find this amongst the sea of beautiful vintage clothing and grab it before anyone else.

The dress itself is made of a crushed red velvet material which I love. Initially, the dress had white chrochet lace detail around the chest region and it was a little too big for me. This wasn't a problem because I managed to get the dress altered exactly to how I wanted it to be when I was on holiday in Bali at a lovely little tailor in Bali Collection, Nusa Dua. Altering cost me a grand total of $30 AUD which I was ecstatic about. As you can see, I got the lace removed simply because I didn't really like the way it looked and I just thought it would look more sleek and classy without the crochet lace, I also got the dress taken in basically all the way down the dress so it would be more form fitting and hug my body correctly.I was super happy with the end result. 

I paired the dress with very simple black accessories, with black two strap sandal heels from Next ( link to the shoes here) which were super comfortable and a black envelope style clutch that I borrowed from my friend. In terms of jewellery, I got a beautiful little jewellery set from Mustafa Centre in Singapore when I was there on holiday in December, I wanted to incorporate a bit more colour to the look so I decided emerald green would go really nicely with the red velvet. I also knew that I wanted to wear big glamorous earrings so the set was perfect for me.

Makeup & Hair


For makeup, I chose to do a black smokey eye with a really warm brown in the crease to soften the look. I also paired this eye look with MAC Viva Glam I which is a dark vampy red with strong brown undertones in a matte finish. For face, I used a full coverage foundation by Dr Llewyn and made sure to focus on creating a really strong cheekbone contour because my face is super round. I wore really natural falsies by skinfood and had a peachy blush on my cheeks by Zoeva.

Full list of products:
- Smashbox Photoready Light Primer
-Dr Llewyn Skin Perfect Foundation
-Face It Radiance Concealer
-Loreal Translucide Powder
-Australis AC ON TOUR Contouring Kit
-Zoeva blush in 'Burning Up'
