It appears as though each Yorkdale Prom Ambassador has a totally different approach to finding their perfect prom look; as they should! Madelyn found her dress, Kate went straight to Tiffany and Lin ran to Aldo to find the perfect pair of pumps that will make her prom outfit seriously stand out. Lin knows what she wants and has an amazing eye for style but might need your help in the shoe department…er…she’s narrowed her picks down to seven. Which pair of colourful heels do you like best? Hey, at least she’s sorted the lipstick: Morange Orange from M.A.C. Mwahhh! We *love*.
Shopping is a fashionista’s favourite form of exercise and Yorkdale is definitely one of the best places to do that. Besides, what better way to get into prom-ready shape than at a mall?
Warning: You always want to go with an open mind and a shopping list. It’s really easy to lose focus and start blowing money on things you don’t actually need. Making a plan beforehand of shops you want to hit up will definitely help minimize the temptation. My plan was all about finding fun shoes and bright lipstick to pop against my dress and hair. (Lin has the most exotic blue hair extensions!)
Shoes, jewelry, a super cute clutch, and makeup were on my shopping list. Although I haven’t yet decided on a dress, I know the style and colour I want; I went on quest for the accessories that will complement it.
Brainstorming all the different combinations of accessories I could use with a royal blue dress I have decided that I do not want classic black heels. I’m going to have fun with my prom look and so I’m on the hunt for bright pumps that will get noticed on the dance floor.
All these heels are a mix of beautiful colours that are so fun and would be the perfect pop of life to my prom look. Not to mention I could see myself rocking these shoes with a lot more outfits.
These shoes call for some funky bangles, an interesting choice in lip colour, and an eccentric clutch. Keeping the many colours to a minimum with accessories that match makes the look seem tied together yet unexpected.
I really got excited about the funky colours when it came to thinking about my make up, I knew that a bright orange lip and a subtle yet classic eye will look amazing. I chose an orange lip colour because it’s a complimentary colour to my royal blue dress.
Yorkdale has such a variety of stores that offer tons of choices and products that will help me achieve my envisioned prom look; I’m definitely looking forward to shopping trip number two!
