if you follow me on instagram, you probably saw bits of our whirlwind trip to topshop chicago to scope out their prom digs for the chictopia x topshop collaboration!
last week i shared my first round of topshop prom style, complete with a girly skirt + crop top. after chatting with topshop's personal shoppers, i opted for the "alternative prom" look this time around -- aka. tomboy wears, which apparently has been popular this season. [ahem, wishing the boyish looks would've been acceptable 10 years ago!]
i did have a few moments of weakness though, being tempted iridescent and metallic numbers. what is it with being female and drawn to shiny things?!!
not to mention the plunging v, body con dress that fit like a glove. and did have a bit of subtle chest-action, which i didn't mind.
but in the end i went with my gut, conquering my fear of white [no spills yet!] and snagging this structured playsuit. perfect for the no-frills kind of prom go-ers. or for us 'mature' babes looking for a eye-catching number for that next cocktail soiree.
