this dress from lookbook.nu (the greatest streetstyle network) is what ive used as inspiration for my prom dress. here in south africa, prom is called a matric dance*
it seems the trend in the states is for girls to wear knee length or shorter dresses... (i dno, just from what ive seen) but here most girls where long ballgowns.
my dress is being made for me. it's cerise pink. the top is thai silk (couldnt find raw silk in the correct colour) and then a gold belt. the layered skirt is chffon lined with satin.
my accesories will be gold.
