I'm on My Way to The Prom!

Kevin Paves, stylist to the stars - and me - flew in to do my 'do'. He wanted to do fancy twists and tucks and things but I said "look mate, I'm just a simple girl from down under" and showed him a photo of my wedding day French Pleat, which looks . . .







just like this (Babe's and I on our Wedding Day) Actually Kevin is a bit of a babe, if my date doesn't turn up I'll take him!



While I was having the 'do' I was slugging back these short black coffee's (I had a little too much Krug)




and guzzling this breath freshener to hide the smell of the Krug!


The beautician came to my room to touch up my make up, earlier in the day I had turned down this in favour of my natural beauty!







The couture designers sent gowns over all afternoon, but being true to myself I am sticking with the gown I shipped over in my antique Louis Vuitton trunk. I'm wearing this, its a 1976 dress wedding dress designed by the then famous Auckland designer Colin Cole. Gorgeous with shoe string shoulder straps, pin tuck pleated bodice and finely pleated full length chiffon skirt. (when I'm done, you can buy it from my shop for $180NZD!)



I was going to wear this vintage bling with it but changed my mind




in favour of this chunky pink pearl necklace.




These are the shoes I had put aside to wear, but alas I sold them last week, for $10!




So found these darling pale pink vintage numbers.




Gotta love my bag, it matches my dress perfectly, fine pleated chiffon and big roses with sequin sparkles. Also from my shop, new at $110NZD. Nothing like a bit of shameless plugging! But wait, there's more . . .




My faux fur stole, its got sparkley bits through it. $30NZD from my shop.



I'd better hurry, I have been advised by reception that my date has arrived! A quick touch up with my Dior lip gloss,




a spray of my Vera Wang perfume, Princess of course!



Babes is unable to be my date as he is away in Taupo on business. But never mind cos this guy here asked me to be his date . . .


But I had to turn him down as this guy here had already asked me and I had accepted!
I'll be good Babes, I promise . . .


Oh my goodness, he ordered a PINK limousine for us to ride in!!! I'm in love . . .


with the limousine!

I thought The Prom was being held here, in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles, after all it would be a suitable venue for a girl of my class and social standing!


but its not, its being held here . . .


which is most suited to a girl of my class and social standing! Go check it out http://natashaburns.blogspot.com/, great music, great company and lots of fun!


See you there - xo
