For me, yes! Because this may be the last time I see my colleagues, my friends, for a really, really, long time! And I know it is really hard to keep in touch with your ex-colleagues when you live in the same city, so what about me – the one that is leaving to 1.777 km away?! -.
Okay, I was not really that close to my colleagues and I didn’t really loved this high school, but it is a part of my life where I loved for the first and the second one, where I discovered that people aren’t always what you think they are, that even the thightest friendship is going to break if you don’t appreciate it enough, that some things are going to change you forever and so on. But the most important thing that I learned from high school is that I don’t really have a future in Romania. That my dream is not really a dream that people around me encourage and so I was oftenly judged due to my tattoos, piercings or crazy hair colours. Which is sad. But this got me here. Wanting to discover people that are open minded made me open my YouTube channel and then castanaonline.com, which got me nominated at Young Divas in Fashion Blogging @ Digital Divas Awards.
So, the Graduation & Prom day was a busy day for me. I had to go to Graduation in the morning, with my family taking photos and being all emotional because I’m finishing high school, then at a family brunch near home because I had to be fast, eat and get home to have a shower and put the semi-permanent tattoos before make up.
I went to Alexandru Abagiu for make up, because he is one of the most talented MUAs I know and then to Centro Donna for a really cute hairstyle. I really loved how they got me all dolled up! Thank you so-sooo much!!
About the dress… It is made by me. The textile is bought from aliexpress.com and with – A LOT OF – help from Elena Coman, I made the dress of my dreams. The bag & heels are from Zara and I loved how all of these accessories helped me gain the look that I wanted.
To be honest, I think that this Prom is a little bit overrated. We are all 18, who needs gowns and a lot of make up?! I tried to do something different, but to keep it casual. And I think I made it!
Thank you so, so much for all of your help, Centro Donna Salons, Alexandru Abagiu, Elena Coman and to dad, for this really great photos!
