Shopping for a Prom Dress/Recital Gown – Tea & Me


Hello! I have not made a video on this
channel in a very long time but I thought it was… Hello! So, I have not been on this channel for a very long time but if you are new to this channel, welcome! My name is… She does that a lot. That was my dad. We are going to look at prom dresses. Not to be used used for a prom. Yeah. I’m not going to prom. I just need a recital dress and apparently, when you sing opera in a recital fashion, you need a gown and I don’t have one, but we’ll take this trip as a time for me to live out my dreams of going to prom, because I never went. So. You know, exciting times, exciting times. I thought I should document my experience and show you the dresses, good and bad. So, we’re on the way to go get my grandmother… uh… because it is her gracious donation that will help me acquire said dress. So, we’re pickin’ up my grandma… right now. She sent me a text saying she’ll be at the back door in 13… No. I’m at door A13 at the back. Whatever that means. So… This is my grandmother, Nana. Well, her
name is Pamela but I call her, Nana. So, hello. We are at Macy’s and I’m
awkwardly filming on my phone well I’m sure people are gonna look at
me weird but that is okay. So, we’re gonna… I don’t even
think I can flip the camera on this That’s take a picture. How is there not a flip the camera? Am i recording? Oh. Huh. I like a princessey… It can be any color I want it to be. It just has to be nice. That’s $400. Really? Yes. Well, that’s silly. (Laughter) I can’t even… it’s like… What do you think? I think you’re gorgeous. Me, too. (Laughter) What kind of a vlogger are you, man? I’m not good at vlogging. Yeah. That one is really pretty. I don’t even know what dress size I am. ♪Do do d’dooo♪ Ah. Yes. I just feel like I’m looking at a bunch
of like twenties dresses. Although, I do like this. But, I kind of… kinda I wanted a poofy
dress. So, I feel like a princess. The census is I don’t know how much luck
we’re having at this Macy’s because some of the nice dresses are a bit out of the
price range. But, then there are a bunch of nice dresses that are more
form-fitting but I don’t really want anything that is very form-fitting
because I don’t… Though, I love my curves, I don’t want to show off my curves. Ya know what I’m sayin’? Ooh. I… I just have no idea. You don’t know what size dress they got you? That was like internet Asian sizes for that one dress. I don’t know. Let’s just grab things. Grab a couple. This is a nine. Take an eleven, too. Just in case. Oh. Oh, this one’s different. I was like, $189… I think that’s the only one. I feel like it’s too small. How much is that one? I feel like a 12 is too big. Yeah. Probably. I think, I’m more of a nine. Nine area. Nine or ten. This this is the even numbers. This 8. Probably 10. I don’t know. I feel like we should just get sizes and if one of the sizes fits, then we know. Let’s just… You know what? I’ll try these on and we can come back out. Sure. For the gala. Tonight. For the red one? For the red and the white. I wear four petticoats. Well, that’s cool. I wish you could buy that red one. I’ll see. I’ll ask. I like it. I like it, too. I think it’s very pretty. Ooh. There’s some stuff on it. (Laughter) Do you have a strapless bra? Classy. This one, the straps come off. But, do you have a strapless bra? This one, the straps come off. I just didn’t want to do it. Yeah, but, I mean, you need a strapless bra. This one is. Oh. I see. You’re talking about the bra you’ve got on. Gotcha. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Perfect. There might be another size. Otherwise, we literally can just take it to an alteration place and say… I bet your mom or someone could sow it. Yeah. That’d be really easy
it’d be easy to stitch. I like the way that it comes in at the waist. So, your vlog is basically you went shopping and the first dress you tried on… (Laughter) I mean, I can try on the other dresses for fun. But, this is very pretty. Now, I don’t know what to choose. I’d prefer the other one. The other one is like $305. This is $259… Es la única. I love it. The shape is pretty much the same, except for the halter top. I like the shape here. I would need a petticoat to wear this because it just… I think it would lay better. I don’t ever wear a lot of bejeweled things. I like the pockets. I do like… I can stick my phone in here. The dress está beautiful. Thank you. I’ll try on the next. This does feel like a ball gown, like I’m gonna go to a ball. I don’t know. Do you think I could go in a size? This is an eight. See. This why when people say what
your size are you, I have no idea. This last dress was an 11. The first one was an eight. I don’t know. I don’t always like shopping for clothes because it just takes a long time Because, a lot of times things look different on my body than I expected them to. (Laughter) What does the front look like? Oh. I don’t how much I like the front. That’s the back. Oh. That’s the back? Yeah. I don’t like the back. This is nice. I feel like the color would be okay. Sure! And, it’s like one of the… See, I don’t know how much I would want just a full-on floral-situation. Yeah. I don’t think so. We’ve moved to the junior department. Jun… ior… Why are you all zoomed-in? Ah, this is kind of like that one I had. I don’t know where Nana went. (Mocking) Yeah, let’s do this… We have to start traveling that way. See, I wish I could wear material like this without being totally irritated. ♪Naaa…na♪ I would sorta… I would like some straps. These are giant. Yeah. They’re not my size. I don’t know. At this point I’m kind of thinking like that green one is a good pick. (They have) a whole different idea on what Junior clothes needs to be. Twenty? I think we might be in a plus section. Oh… Well, I mean, I have two Spanish songs. You do? Mh hmm. It’s very… Spanish. I don’t know. That one looks more like a
sundress than a recital dress. Yeah, it does. The other one looked very… It looked very… recital. Yeah. How do you put it on? It’s an octopus dress. I decided to go with the green one after
I tried on sooo many dresses! The first one. Yeah, the first one! (Laughter) And, there’s even like a little rip in the
strap but I feel like we could just easily sow it up or do something and it’ll be right and good. So… Thank you for watching this video where I try on dresses in Macy’s.
