The Med School Ball {prom}

Thursday, April 19, 2012


So, the medical school ball {prom} is tomorrow night and I still need to get my ducks in a row for it. I contemplated so many times as to whether I should go buy a dress or just wear one I already have. I decided to wear this blue dress since I've only worn it one another time and I really liked how it sparkled. What do y'all think? A lot of the other girls will be in shorter dresses. Most don't the typical long prom dress, so I figured I'd just go with something I already had. 

Now, I need your help! 

For shoes, this is what I had in mind: 
 I want something sparkly to go with the beading on the shoulders and waist. Shoes are from Steve Madden. 

For the Hair: 

 As you can tell, I am going for the braid look. I am not the best at doing my own hair, but I will have plenty of time to do trial and error. Any tricks you want to share? 

Jewelry: 

I don't plan on wearing a necklace since it's already a busy area. So, I plan to wear my Mignon Faget Knot ring (Left) and my Silver Pandora Charm bracelet (Right). I have not a clue what to do for earrings.. Should I do dangling earrings or stud earrings? 
*By the way, Mignon Faget is a New Orleans jewelry designer, should check her out if you haven't heard of her before! 

What do y'all think of my ideas so far? I am open to suggestions!

  2. I think with that dress the FIRST shoe would look the best and the LAST hair do, because you sort of have a long braid, right?

    Not sure about the bracelet with it, do you have something more delicate? Something simple yet elegant and a little bling?

    I would wear a drop earring and no necklace, exactly!!!! Good luck , can't wait to see picks, and have fun!

  3. Love the blue dress!!! I say go with the peep toe heels. They are always more comfortable on the toes. And I say you could definitely some dangly ear rings since your hair will be pulled back! Love it all.

  6. My vote is for the closed toe pumps to the right! And paired with the first braid on Blake... it's very loose but elegant with that braid :)

  12. I am pretty terrible at doing hair too, but I've had some success with the braid/low bun type of look. It's pretty easy to make a little braid and then pin it into your bun/updo. My advice - go with the first attempt unless it's terrible! Too many times I have braided my hair, thought it looked ok but wanted it to look PERFECT, only to take it out and never get it as good as that first try. Have fun!!

  13. I like the first pair of shoes and the second hairstyle! I'd probably wear dangly earrings since you're hair will be up =)

    I love doing braided up-do's...in fact I have one in today! If I were to give you a suggestion I would say do the braid really tight and then loosen it by pulling up on it so it's not so tight on your head. Go check out Kate at The Small Things Blog at www.thesmallthingsblog.com if you don't already read her blog because she has great tutorials! That's where I learned the trick of how to loosen the braids.

    Love the color blue of the dress too!

  16. You are going to look amazing!! The messy and undone the hair the better. I would opt for open toe silver shoes. And go with studs...simple and classy! I can't wait to hear all about it!! Have a "ball"! ;)
