  • Dress of the Week: La Femme 18951 Kristen Stewart Oscars Dress

    Even though we didn't include Kristen Stewart in our Best Dressed at the 2013 Oscars blog post earlier this week, we were still absolutely in love with her look! We were especially impressed with her style considering she was stuck on crutches for the night!

    The white lace gown look has definitely been a popular trend lately, and will continue to be for Prom 2013. There's a lot of different options as far as getting Kristen's look for prom, but we especially love La Femme style 18951. It's a gorgeous white lace mermaid dress with a trumpet silhouette, sweetheart neckline, lace bodice, and flared sheer skirt. Best yet, if white isn't really your color of choice, it also comes in black and red.

  • What's Your Prom Dress Style?

    It can be very exciting to start looking for your perfect prom dress, but if you don' t have an idea going in of what you want, it can also turn into a very long process! So, before you begin searching for your dream dress, start thinking about what type of dress you're looking for. We'll be posting more about different types in weeks to come, but below are some basics to think about while it's still early on in prom season. They are in no particular order, and you'll find that you have no preferences towards some of the different features - it's all about finding the few details that you know you want in your dress!

    1. The most basic of all questions: Short Dresses or Long Dresses? If you have a preference one way or another to this, it's a quick way to weed out a whole bunch of dresses! If you go with long dresses, this opens up many more questions, as there's different style long dresses to choose from: mermaid, ball gown, and evening gowns. Of course, if you can't decide between the two, the trendy Hi-Lo dress look may be a good option for you - it's a nice way to get both looks in one! Best of all, most Hi-Lo dresses have detachable skirts, so you really can wear the dress both ways.

     

    2. What color dress do you want? If you have a favorite color that you know you want to wear, this can be a great place to start. There's so many options out there when it comes to color, so you definitely won't find yourself limited!

    3. Is there a certain style you want? Some examples to consider are: the classic Cinderella ball gown, an edgy Glam Rock look, Vintage, or rock some fringe in a Flapper style dress.

    Another fun way to find your prom dress style is to take the many quizzes online that match your personality to a dress! Seventeen Magazine's "What's Your Prom Style" quiz is a great one to check out!

  • Prom Dreams Ruined

                What if you had spent nearly $1000 on your Prom dress, shoes, and jewelry, bought your Prom tickets, but then your date backed out and you were told by the school that you weren’t allowed into Prom without a date? Well, that’s what happened to one Wayne, Pennsylvania high school student.

                Seventeen-year-old, Amanda Dougherty was shocked when school officials from Archbishop John Carroll High School told her that she was not allowed to attend her Junior Prom without a date because of a rule made by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. According to her father, Amanda had been so excited for a couple of years awaiting her Prom to finally arrive. In fact, she was so excited that she started dress shopping around Christmas time, where she spent close to $1000 for her Prom wear and tickets. She even compared dresses with her friends on a Facebook page that was ‘blocked’ so that the guys couldn’t see it.

                When questioned about the predicament, the office of Catholic Education responded with “there are numerous dances and events throughout the year where dates are not required, but we view the prom as a special social event where a date is required to attend.” What do you think? Should Amanda have been allowed to attend her Junior Prom?  How would you have responded if the same thing happened to you?
