Throwback Thursday (on a Sunday). Posted this on Insta and totally forgot to put them on FB. Bahhh.
Anyway. Crashed my older best friends' prom. I borrowed a whole bunch of things from people to put together this outfit. I've always had fun with that kinda stuff - like I would see outfits so clearly in my head since I was a kid but didn't have the money to get all the exact pieces so I'd have to improvise. Safety pins were my best friend with the borrowed business suit from my mom. I got poked by them through the night as they bent out of shape as I sat or moved. My cousin lent me her hat. And my sister lent me her shoes and gloves. Flower I may have stolen from the dollar store (not proud). Lol. I think that necklace was just from a piece of fabric or something I tied together in the back. Whatever, I made it work.
This girl makes me happy. Though I was insecure about being at an older prom, and I know there were a ton of things going on in my life, including struggling with eating disorders and feeling out of it a lot of the time, I got my ass there and we even sang that night. I may have even had a little fun .... 😂
Oh and thank God for the Josie and The Pussycats movie because the gorgeous Josie or Rachael Leigh Cook was my hair inspiration. (Or really, my everything inspiration. Lol)
