  • Prom Trend of the Week: Printed Dresses

    This week's prom trend is one of our favorites because we love seeing different patterns and innovative looks every year. Printed dresses are so creative and are always fresh since there's so many different ways to wear the trend! A print dress will always be a showstopper; whether it's animal print or polka dots, you'll be sure to have the most memorable dress of the night!

    Printed dresses can either work with your figure or go against it, depending on the pattern and your body shape and height. So, just make sure to pick a pattern that suits your body type. If you find the right printed dress, it can be super figure flattering. Below are some of our favorite new patterned dresses for Prom 2013 - they are all great looks that certainly take the boredom out of a solid color dress!

    Sherri Hill 2813

    Tony Bowls 2351337

    La Femme 18017

    1. La Femme 18969 Rose Gold Gown - A unique sequined gown with a sweetheart neckline and contrasting pattern on the skirt. The chevron pattern is très chic. One of our favorites! If you're on the taller side, this is a great dress option - the chevron pattern will really work to give you a slimming figure.

    2. Sherri Hill 2813 Nude Evening Gown - Be the center of attention in this fitted floor length strapless jeweled gown. The unique beaded pattern on this dress takes the patterned dress trend to a new level by almost giving it a 3D look! The way the patterns are laid out on this dress should work to accent your curves.

    3. Tony Bowls Tony B 2351337 - A strapless printed chiffon A-line prom dress with a sweetheart neckline and gathered empire waist accented with chunky hand-beading. This is simply a fun dress, and a great way to wear print in a more simple way. The subtle ombre make this dress so on-trend, while the print gives off an artsy look.

    4. La Femme 18017 - Go wild in this blue one shoulder animal print ombre gown with a sexy front slit. The pleated bodice has cutouts leading to the back cutout and trimmed with sequins and beading. If you love animal print, this is such a fun way to rock the look. The ombre keeps the animal print from being too overpowering, since it fades into white at the bottom.

  • New Year's Eve Party Themes

    With New Year's Eve only 4 days away, it's definitely time to get your party plans together! Whether you're holding your own party, or attending someone else's, it can be fun to have a theme. Party City recently put together a list of NYE party themes that we thought were cute ideas to spice up the normal New Year's party. Whether you're looking for a theme for your own party, or if you know that one of your friends will be having one at theirs, we paired some sexy cocktail dresses with our favorite Party City NYE party ideas.

    Want to stick with the classic New Year's Eve look? You definitely can't go wrong by keeping with tradition and going with a black, silver, and gold party theme. As far as dressing for the occasion, a classic little black dress is always perfect, but it can be fun to dress it up a bit with silver or gold accenting either on the dress or with your accessories. We love Primavera style 9625 for a traditional NYE look - it's a cute strapless dress with silver and black sequins.

    Looking for something a little more funky for New Year's Eve? There's definitely no better night to let your wild side out! Don't be afraid to shake things up with fun spots and stripes in your party's theme and on your outfit. Animal print dresses are always a sexy staple for any girl's closet, so it's a dress you won't have trouble finding multiple uses for. We love Xcite style 30375 and Jovani style 9866 cocktail dresses to get the animal print look for NYE.

    Just want to add some bright colors to your New Year's Eve? Go with a "Midnight Mystery" theme and fill your night with bold blues, purples, oranges and reds. There's plenty of multicolor dresses you can pick from, but we love Hannah S. style 27781 for a fun and flirty look.

  • Floral Prints – Don’t You Forget About Me

    Floral Print Dress ClassicDecorating our clothing with flowers has been a tradition for hundreds of year.  Originating in Asia, large floral prints on women’s kimonos represented natural beauty and femininity.  Europeans, fascinated by this culture, adapted floral prints for their own society during the renaissance.  It became a fashion statement for upper class women to wear dresses made from luxurious fabrics covered in beautiful flower patterns.

    During the 1940s, floral dresses became the most popular trend.  Looking back to that time, it’s impossible not to picture women without their wavy curls, pearl earrings, and flower printed frocks.   How Retro says that “As fashion seasons come and go, floral dresses rise and fall in popularity yet have remained a constant in women's clothes.”  The delicate qualities of the flower makes wearing a floral print seem truly feminine.

    “This season is all about the power of flower print,” announced Jovani in their recent newsletter.  Runway trends are all about pastel and neon colors, with “garden-inspired” prints being used in new and unique ways.  Whether you’re looking for a casual dress, or something more formal, you’ll be able to find a floral dress for the occasion.  Pick an accent color from one of the flowers to match your accessories and makeup, and your outfit will be a hit.  It looks like this classic style is here to stay!
