If you still biting your fingernails about your dream dress, check out my prom series from Cannes 2014.
Right peeps! The accessories. It can be urm…very daunting especially if you were clumsy enough to spend all of your budget on your ‘it’ dress with less money left for your accessories. So here are few moody boards I personally recommend.
Please note that there’s more options of styles and colours on their site.
Seen in Grazia, Company and Marie Claire Chelsea Doll is the best place for all things high fashion-done-right-on-a-budget and quirky cool. Whether you’re a bright teen or sophisticated mama, you’ll find something unique on Chelsea Doll. In the subject of prom, chandelier earrings are best for the ladies who want to look like an A-list. If you hate the drops, jeweled’gem studs are also very A-list if you’re looking to look sophisticated. The big trends this year are monochrome and bold brights. Vintage inspired earrings are available for those who opted for the classics.

They’ve focused more on stacked rings, pastels and florals. It’s all about the pretty-girly things with their accessories. If you haven’t had your ears pierced, you can make it up with the finger bling statement. There are also rings sets that are also available.

Does this brand need an introduction? Like seriously.
River Island jewellery consisted of bold statement tropical brights, bracelet sets, diamante and cocktail rings. Apart from having unique products such as body harnesses gem stone is at the forefront of their range. If you’re think of wearing a strong statement necklace, then your earrings are limited to studs. In my unprofessional-unlicensed-non-expertise, you can possible go away with a statement necklace with a statement ring. Too much jewellery can destroy your look, in addition to imbalance your silhouette.
