I remember the first time I went to a Prom ... it was during my Sophomore year ( of high school ) and my boyfriend at the time invited me to his Jr. Prom. I still had braces and did my own makeup, curled my own hair but girlllll - my dress was perfect! It was this strapless light blue / sea-foam greenish color with an A-symmetrical sheer over lay of small beads and rhinestones. Very dainty and girly and totally ME !
I want your Prom dress to be just as perfect as mine was so I have picked out my 5 favorite dresses from DressFirst.com. These are so pretty I can almost guarantee you will feel just as girly, sparkling and fabulous as I did !
Did you know that : DressFirst.com is the global leading online retailer for wedding gowns, special event dresses, wedding party dresses, and accessories?!
----------------------Before you check out the dresses, here are some Tips for Finding the Perfect Dress :
- Get the dress fitted !! You will feel more comfortable and confident throughout the night if dress fits. You won't need to constantly adjust yourself : pick it up, pull it up, flop out or any other fiasco, if you spend the little bit extra and have a seamstress fit it for you.
- Keep this manta in mind - Sparkles = Good . Side Boob = Not Good . TRUST ME ! Think classy when picking out your dress. You don't want to come to regret a super revealing dress after the fact. When Prom night rolls around and your in a fancy ball room filled with all your classmates and don't you want to dance and not worry about popping out ?! OR no better yet when your looking back at these pictures with your daughter in 20 years - yea - your going to want to be covered up just a bit. Besides couth is sexy !!
Couth | pronouced : kooTH | cultured, refined, and well mannered. #knowledge
- Expanding on - Sparkles = Good . Even if your everyday style is a bit of a simpler one I recommend maybe stepping one little foot out the sparkle door and glittering it up a bit. Just for Prom night. The beads, glitter and sparkle rhinestones, even a light dose of them will brighten your whole look up. Plus they look great in pictures and really make a dress fun! Going with a plain dress anyways? Maybe throw on a shimmer headband or rhinestone hair clip.
- Whatever you wear - Be yourself & exude that inner confidence I know you have. You ARE gorgeous !!
