Events: Swarovski Crystals Hollywood Hills Vintage Prom and Spring Collection Preview

Last night was Prom night! No seriously, last night I attended the Hollywood Hills High Prom hosted by Swarovski. Cute event idea right? See the Swarovski band is produced in Austria where they don’t have Proms. However, the were inspired by the American tradition when creating the Spring 2012 collection and wanted to throw a good ole fashion 1960’s Prom to preview the collection. The event was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel (very fancy) and hosted by Cameron Silver of Decades who provided vintage 60’s inspired dresses for all the mannequins to wear. I know this post has nothing to do with DIY but I wanted to share with my Glitterati because I know how my things that bling inspire you. Below are a few sights. Enjoy…

Forget Pandora or the MP3 players, the room was covered in personalized Swarovski 45’s. Such an adorable decorative party idea.

Talk about a statement necklace!

Yummy drinks

…and yummy jewelry!

This is my favorite part of the collection. I love the crystals in different shades of pink. The necklace is to die for and that drop earrings are gorgeous.

And can we talk about his rings for a minute? It’s a must!

This is the couture piece that inspired the collection. Isn’t it just so glam!

Here’s a little blinged out headhand situation to inspire you. What I love most about Swarovski  is that they have an Elements division to their brand that allows you to buy the crystals and make it yourself. Swarovski Elements encourages doing it yourself and you know I’m a fan of that! I love to browse the Elements website and  inspiration boards (here) for ideas.

Everyone was getting into the them of the evening. My blogger buddy Sydne Summer of Sydne Style rocked her gorgeous emerald green vintage maxi dress from Shareen’s Vintage to the event.

If I had Prom to do all over again, I’d for sure rock a Swarovski encrusted clutch!

I’m a huge fan of my girl Jade’s 60’s inspired dress

This Swarovski necklace from the Spring collection would make the perfect accessory for her dress. I love this necklace. It’s Swarovksi’s answer to those famous braided nut bracelets that are so popular in the DIY world.

All in all it was a fabulous Prom night!

AND I GOT ENGAGED! lol not really, but I did have hours of fun trying on Swarovski cocktail rings. When someone does finaly put a ring on it, I want the ring to look like this! lol Take note boys…
