A prom dress
I remember my prom quite well, despite the fact that it was a decade ago (literally a decade). The way proom was organized in my school and in most of the high schools here is that we would chose one of our classmates to be our 'date.' Boys being more numerous than girls in my highschool, they would usually end up with two dates. Well, I always thought it was silly that people must have a date to go to a proom. That's why I'm happy that where I'm from we don't really do that 'date' thing. A date is just a friend you walk into the ballroom with and once the proom is over at about 2 or 3 am, we all go clubbing together. All in all, my proom night was a quite pleasent evening and I remember it fondly. Being very pleased with the dress I wore certainly made the night more enjoyable.
My dress was long and I felt very glamours in it. I think that the question that most girls ask themselves is what length should their proom dress be. What colour is also a frequent dilemma. I don't think there is a right answer to that question. What is important is that you feel special in that dress. That is the criteria that any dress for any formal occassion should fit. Today there are so many fantastic options out there that we are almost spoiled for choice. I remember that I gave my prom dress to a cousin of mine because I knew that she hates shopping and trying on clothes and it fit her perfectly. However, nowadays she would probably just order the dress online.
When I was contacted by PromTimes, I decided to chose a few favourites. I will explain why these dresses were the ones that caught my eye the most.
This little dress is simply divine. Because of the lace and the detailing it looks so glamours. I would say that a dress like this one would be perfect if you don't want a gown. The open back is always very attractive ( even if it requires a special bra if you are a size C or bigger). I can't decide do I like this dress better from front or from the back. I imagine any girl wearing it would feel like a modern princess. LBD is a classic, but for your proom night, you might want to jazz things up a little by something like this one.
This gorgeous white dress I selected because it reminds me of my own wedding dress. My wedding dress was actually not a real wedding dress. I saw it by accident in a a random store and had to buy it right away because both me my husband liked it. Back to this dress and why I like it. I think this cut of the dress is very flattering. White is always a good choice and the silver detail is a nice touch. In my wedding dress I felt like I was walking on clouds, it was the most comfortable dress I ever wore. That's why I would consider wearing something like this one. You might end up feeling like a Greek Goddess and that's not a bad feeling at all.
This beautiful long sleeve dress is stunningly beautiful. Lace is always a very chic choice. I remember I was estatic with joy when I managed to find a dress with lace sleeves for my first communion. Back at the day, our first communion dresses were sewn by nuns and we would just borrow them for the day, so finding the one you like in the sea of similary looking ones was tricky. The long lace sleeves on this dress are very feminine. Yellow is a very trendy colour right now...and wearing yellow you certainly won't go unnoticed. The open back adds a bit of subtle sensuality. So, that is why I really like this one.
How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels.
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look. If you don't feel comfortable en…
Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges.
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays as intensely bec…
One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.
What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces. If you'r…
