If you know me, you know I love a good theme party so when Gymboree New York hosted its first-ever prom, Juliet and I had to go!  What fashionista doesn’t love a reason to dress-up?

Last year, Juliet wore a white sequin tutu dress from Little Trendsetter that featured an outrageously cute, oversized bubble-bow.

Her handsome date, Willem thoughtfully surprised her with a bouquet of flowers.  What a sweet date, huh? At the party, they danced, chased each other around and dined on pizza making the most of the incredible play space that Gymboree has to offer.

The evening ended with them being crowned Prom King and Prom Queen!  They were so honored.

So this year, when Gymboree announced it was having its prom again and after People Magazine wrote this article, we were so excited to return!

Juliet and I had already dressed as flappers last Halloween so we already had Gatsby-esque outfits ready to go! Here’s a snapshot of us returning from our trick-or-treating adventure last year.

And this girl loves to DANCE!  Here she paired the dress  with dollar store necklaces and Mini Melissa shoes that I bought at a sample sale online.

From the looks of it, her date also liked her look.  FullSizeRender (2)

Of course I had to match my minime.  Here is a close-up of the handcrafted headpieces I created with a glue gun and some broken jewelry from home. IMG_6602
