  • Get Moving on Prom 2011!

    Your prom is sooner than you think! The groundhog made his prediction! With the winter storms almost behind us and day light savings soon to stretch our days with sun rays, the warm weather fun can be distracting! With spring on its way and the promise of summer vacation around the corner, it’ll be hard to remember that you can't wait until the last hour to find your prom dress!   If you are planning to attend prom this year, take it from me- you need to get moving!

    1.       Availability is limited! Designer’s selection can be sold out quickly and most retailers will only have a dress in a few sizes and colors. In order to guarantee the style you want, it is ideal to get your dress as early as possible.

    2.        Set a few weekends in February and March aside to check out the local dress boutiques. Most retailers begin stocking their stores to ready for the prom rush as early as January. Get there early, and you’ll see some of the hottest and newest trends for the season, not to mention the best selection.

    3.       If you’re shopping for your prom dress online, check availability with the website you’re intending to buy from to ensure that your dress will be available in time for your prom.   Be sure to investigate designer size charts - A local seamstress can help you with your measurements to ensure proper fit!

    Most of us require some adjustments in dress fit.  (And if your dress fits perfectly, you hit it out of the park!) Getting a move on your prom shopping as soon as possible will allow time for alterations and fittings.  By doing your prom homework (yes, after your school work) and buying your dress in the early hours of prom season, you can make sure that your dress is the perfect complement to your special night!

    Best of luck with your prom shopping! Prom will be one of your most memorable high school experiences!Enjoy it!!

  • ** 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

  • Disney's "Prom" Movie

    Step aside "High School Musical", Disney's back with another potential teen film franchise and this one is simply titled "Prom". Prom is schedule to hit theaters on April 29, 2011 and focuses on nine high school seniors, all striving to make the best out of the big night. The good folks at Disney have already put out the movies' first trailer, take a look and let us know what you think.

    Here is the synopsis provided by Disney:

    “At ‘Prom,’ every couple has a story and no two are exactly alike. Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; ‘Prom’ portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it’s a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Fellow seniors Mei (Yin Chang) and Tyler (DeVaughn Nixon) harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school’s most seminal events. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there’s only one ‘Prom.'"

    Unlike High School Musical, "Prom" is not a musical. It's a comedy and is supposed to be "fun for the whole family," which usually means "just enough to keep everyone mildly entertained".  The cast is largely a bunch of no names but as we know, Disney can create stars!  So what do you think, is Disney's "Prom" worth a shot?
