Swing Prom!

If you’ve been following PPMeow! for sometime now, you’ll know that I’ve fallen head-over-heels for Lindy Hop and Swing Dancing!  So much so that all summer I’ve tried to attend as many free, outdoor swing event around the city (click here & here), and nearly every Saturday (since the completion of my lessons with Lindy Hop Revolution),  I’ve been at The Dovercourt House where Toronto Lindy Hop hosts weekly live bands and dances (with lessons).

Well friends, the last Saturday of every month, Toronto Lindy Hop has a fantastic theme night – and August’s was: SWING PROM!

Which means, this chick had an excuse to get extra all dolled up in vintage-esk duds AND dance the night away in a tiara – duh!

I picked up this teal dress from a Plus Size Consignment Sale I participated in last year — its an ASOS dress — and this is the first time I’ve ever worn it.  The long strand pearls were picked up from the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show a earlier this year and shoes (from Naturalizer) and tiara were from my wedding.  Thrilled to finally have an excuse to wear this prettiness out again!



To my surprise….making these corsages and  boutonnieres were uber simple.

All you need are some love faux flowers and leaves, a bit of felt adhere the flowers down to, elastic to secure it to your wrists and a hot glue gun to stick everything down into place.  Easy. Peasy. Lemon. Squeezy. 🙂

These were the ones I created!!! I’m not at all crafty…and was thrilled and how great these turned out! Yay me!
Tah-Dah! Corsages totally make these prom dresses….don’t you think?
Swing dancing in poofy frocks just makes your heart happy…. at least it does mine. 🙂
