  • Fangtastic Halloween Style with LBDs!

    With Halloween only a week away, our newsletter this week was all about dressing up for the day of fright, fun, and lots and lots of candy! If you didn't get our newsletter, or just didn't get a chance to read it, we wanted to make sure write a post about it, as well, as we know how difficult it can be to put a perfect Halloween outfit together.

    little black dresses for Halloween

     

    If you're stuck on what to wear, finding a sexy little black dress is always a choice you can count on. Two LBDs that we especially love for Halloween are Sticks & Stones by Mori Lee style 9200 and Dave & Johnny 8580.

    Mori Lee 9200 is a strapless sweetheart cocktail dress with all over lace details. It's a sexy look that also comes in a Black/Nude color that can be paired with so may different accessories to make a limitless amount of different Halloween looks.

    Dave & Johnny 8580 is a dress that we posted a few days ago in our Get Bewitched and Vamped Up for Halloween blog post. It's a dress that's a perfect combination of cute and sexy with the sheer, lace, sparkle, and tulle details.

    Pair your favorite LBD with stand-out heels like Touch Ups Blake Platform Boot Pump or Baylee by Sizzle Black Beaded Pumps to finish off the dark, sophisticated look. Then, just pick out the accessories of the Halloween character you'd like to be, such as a witch's hat, a masquerade mask, cat ears, or a floral headband and Dia de Los Muertos face paint, to get that FANGtastic Halloween style!

  • Be Responsible and Keep Prom Night Safe

    Underage drinking is growing at epidemic proportions in the United States. High school administrations and parents across the country are dealing head on with this issue every day, some choosing to turn a blind eye to the problem and others choosing to educate their teens on the dangers of drinking. Parents should realize that the problem of underage drinking can be diminished by educating their children about responsible alcohol drinking.

    High schools across America have a “zero tolerance” policy for drinking at school functions and as Prom season comes into full swing, many schools will plan programs reminding students that alcohol and Prom do not mix.  Many schools have “SADD” programs, “a peer-to-peer education, prevention, and activism organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence, and teen suicide” (Student’s Against Destructive Decisions, www.sadd.com).

    Many high schools have a “mock crash” to show students the dangers of drinking and driving on Prom night. Others even go as far as having students sign a “sober contract”, an agreement to remain alcohol and drug free during Prom. To combat the pre-Prom parties, many schools have implemented the use of a breathalyzer at the door, turning away those who have been drinking (A breathalyzer is used to test someone's alcohol level in their blood.) These are all preventative measures to discourage prom go-ers from using alcohol before and during prom.  And even if you were to “get away” with it, alcohol consumption can turn what should be one of your high school year’s most memorable events into one of your most horrific ones…if you can remember it at all.

    And what about after Prom? The legal drinking age in the United States is 21 years old. Some young people find this statement a bit confusing and difficult to understand, but let’s break it down into simpler terms. THE LEGAL DRINKING AGE IN THE UNITED STATES IS 21 YEARS OLD! That means that if you are under 21 years old and you are consuming an alcoholic beverage, you are committing a CRIME! Yes, to all of you underage young adults rolling your eyes, thinking its “no big deal”, it is! Whether it’s at a party in your parent’s home or at a friend’s house, drinking underage is against the law.

    The only preventative measure in underage drinking is to be responsible and choose not to drink. Prom is a time to celebrate. For most seniors, it is the last hoorah before Graduation. It should be an enjoyable and memorable event to conclude your high school experience. It is an exciting time not only for you, but for your family and school community but it can turn dangerous when alcohol is involved. In the end, underage drinking is a choice. For Prom 2012, make the right choice for yourself. Be responsible, be fun and be alcohol free.

  • ** Trend Alert ** Prints Part I: Spotted!

    Open a fashion magazine lately? If you're reading this blog, I'd assume you have and if you took the time to flip through it, I'd assume you came across a page dedicated to Animal Prints.  Animal prints have gained momentum in our wardrobes. First we started with one piece, maybe a cardigan or a tank top. Next came Animal Prints in our jewelry and handbags, followed by shoes and now larger pieces like jackets and dresses. It is only right that we mention that this includes prom dresses.

    Many people assume that most Animal Prints are leopard.  This is an easy error and leopard, without a doubt, has been the most popular, but leopard, jaguar and cheetah are all similar to each other as you can see below.  The three are so similar and common that many of us assume one as the other. The chart below can help you to distinguish the difference in prints. Other popular prints this season include tiger, zebra and giraffe.

    Prom dress designers are jumping at the chance to use Animal Prints in their designs for Spring 2011. From the subtle hint of the print to the obvious and daring full print, Animal Prints are in this Prom. Check out a few of my favorite, "standard" Animal Print dresses... Continue reading
