Hey everybody! I hope you all have been doing well. :)
Well, as you know it's prom season. I have...uh...definite opinions about what girls wear to prom these days. It's like they're trying to see who can get more naked. :/ However, my lovely stepdaughter Hannah *really* outdid herself this year at her senior prom, and I wanted to show you what polish she wore...butter LONDON Wallis!
butter LONDON Wallis???!!!!
You read that right, folks. Hannah chose the famous (or infamous) butter LONDON Wallis for her senior prom. Why, you might inquire, would an 18-year-old girl be wearing this color to her PROM? Well...Hannah, being the awesome young lady she is, chose as her prom dress a vintage 1950's debutante gown. And it happened to be the same color as Wallis. :)
Once you get over the shock of Wallis' being...well...so very Wallis...you realize it's supremely elegant. It really is. It's the perfect metallic mesh of olive green and gold. (We had some curtains in the 70's this color! They were fancy too!) If you think about the woman for whom Wallis is named, the polarizing Wallis Simpson, you may remember all of the elegant images of her from the 1930's. So vintage is quite the appropriate adjective here. And I'm not kidding...you simply CANNOT get a more photogenic polish.
Hannah wore Wallis in a funky French tip, and she looked BEAUTIFUL! I've known Hannah since she was 8, and she has always had a kind of "antique" look about her heart-shaped face...just something about her. And she's an old soul, too. So, this vintage ensemble was so perfect for her that she could have walked right out of 1952. She truly had a showstopping look on prom night. :)
I'm so proud of Miss Hannah and the exemplary young lady she has become. <3
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)
How adorably vintage; with great polish taste to boot! The dress and the polish are lovely!ReplyDelete
I agree, it takes a special young lady to appreciate Wallis. You know...I tend to forget how pretty it is. :)Delete
This is a gorgeous green! Love it.ReplyDelete
I bet it would great on you, Lisa! It's a special color that you certainly don't see every day.Delete
Gorgeous polish! And Hannah looks so pretty!ReplyDelete
Thank you! <3 Wallis is gorgeous...in a somewhat disturbing way, LOL.Delete
First of all congratulations to Hannah! What a beautiful young lady she is - love that dress on her. Wallis as French how utterly avantgarde is this? Wallis on you is simply stunning, I am experience a high level nail envy at this very moment - Wallis is hideous on me - you wear this color so well and I am not only reminded of curtains of the seventies but some antique silk cushions with some embroidery crafted in Venice - I hope you still enjoy Wallis on your nails today <3ReplyDelete
Awww thank you! <3 Isn't her dress lovely? And yes! Avant garde it is, especially on an 18-year-old! Ahh, I hate it that you can't wear it...I do like it on me, and it's one of...maybe three?...BLs that behave somewhat well with my chemistry. And what a good comparison to Venetian cushions...today as I glance down at my nails, I shall imagine myself in a gondola...LOLOL...Delete
A beautiful polish for a beautiful young lady. Hannah looks absolutely stunning!ReplyDelete
Ahhh, thank you Liz! <3 You NC girls have good taste. ;)Delete
I love vintage looks! Hannah with her look is gorgeous. I have a sneaking hunch that Wallis may qualify as a Disturbing Green lol!ReplyDelete
Yes! A very disturbing green! I didn't feature Wallis on that post because I knew I had special plans for it. <3Delete
Hannah looks absolutely beautiful. The whole look is gorgeous and utterly feminine and deserving of any and all accolades-- short, tight, and low cut need not be worn all at once-- or at all. And her makeup is just perfect for the dress! And Wallis is super cool. I don't have it but I have one similar and you're making me want to play with it again :)ReplyDelete
She did look lovely and was quite a hit. <3 I was wondering if you had Wallis...it seems so you. It's got a good formula for me, so I'm sure it would be great for you. I actually bought it when I read Essie's post about it...she was doing an alphabet challenge and it was U for ugly, LOLOL...Delete
Wallis is sooo gorgeous, and one of my favorite Butter Londons. I never thought about it, but you're right, it does have a vintage vibe to it. :) Hannah looks amazing and so unique! Wallis is perfect for that dress. :)ReplyDelete
:) And just like the dress, what can one say about Wallis that is more true than "unique"? :P I looked up Wallis on your blog and couldn't see it...did you review it? I bet it's super pretty on you.Delete
No, I haven't reviewed it yet. I'm sooo slow. It's on my list haha. :)Delete
Wallis is so elegant and Hannah matched the part perfectly!!! Kudos to her for breaking the mold and still looking cute and classy!! You don't have to look almost naked to be beautiful and Hannah proved that!ReplyDelete
Amen!! Maybe I should suggest Trendsetter to Hannah for graduation? Too much? :PDelete
Not at all because she's a trendsetter to be respected!!!Delete
Hannah looks lovely and Wallis is the perfect match! And on you, Wallis looks marvelous!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I don't know if I need to be concerned that a color like this looks so good on me?? :)Delete
Thank you all for the wonderful comments! I had a wonderful time at prom and was lucky enough to be able to find a polish that matched quite well with my dress. Wallis is a "cool" green in my book! :)ReplyDelete
Also, thank you Melissa for the taking the time to write such sweet words about me. I haven't had time to sit down and write a comment until now, but it definitely means a lot to me to read such nice comments. I am so proud of my "evil step-mom" Melissa and all her polish endeavors. I love you....
I love you too. <3
