Searching

romper & shoes: goodwill, hat: forever 21, bag: thrifted
Hayloo! I hope you all are well. These photos + outfit are from yesterday when my mom and I ventured to the Haight in San Francisco in search of a prom dress. Yes, it is that time of year when all the girls at my school are buying their dresses for the senior prom which is at the end of May. I, on the other hand, have decided to find a unique vintage dress to wear to my prom. So we searched the vintage shops on Haight, but unfortunately we didn't find anything that I loved/fit me perfectly.

Here's a shout out to any Etsy people/vintage sellers - keep me posted on any fancy-ish vintage dresses you may be selling (or if you spot one on Etsy, let me know!) I'm on the search, and I'd love for you all to keep your eyes peeled! I wear a 26" waist, and I think I'm looking for a dress with a fuller skirt... perhaps ones with lace or chiffon? Just let me know! Email me at thecity.smiles@gmail.com or comment or something! Thank you, dolls. ♥

  14. You have such fun accessories. I love that bag and your earrings of prettyness. And hats always look so very cute on you! You were MADE to be a hat wearer! :D~

    Vintage prom dress? All right! Sounds like it'll be a fun search. I wish you luck and can't wait to see it! I wanted to wear one of my mom's old dresses to prom but she was just a wweeeee bit tinier than I was. Strangely enough, now I can fit into it.. a little late for that, though!

    && b'aww tsehdffsdf you are so sweet ; w; model me? You jest!~ you are so sweet. Like a cupcake. Or a toaster strudel. Your pick. :D
