This past weekend, I was invited to attend a prom fashion show on behalf of The Everywhere Society. I do some work with them on occasion and this sounded like it could be a lot of fun! The show was hosted by Jamie Krell. She’s a frequent fashion contributor on news segments all over the country… Including The Today Show and E! There was a large crowd and cupcakes were served. I thought that was really cute. Macy’s even gave out $10 gift cards to attendees who tweeted about the event.
The trends were clear: high/low hemline (lovingly called the “mullet dress” on Twitter), the short dress with the long sheer overlay and *bling*!
In my previous post… I asked you what you might do differently if you could do prom all over again. You shared some really great memories with me. It’s time for me to share some with you. I made some unfortunate formal wear choices throughout high school. I feel as if I was always trying to look older. Or something? I have no idea. I’ve never been super fashionable. I was an athlete. I felt more comfortable in my basketball jersey than a formal dress.
If I were going to do my prom days all over again… I’d live out my fantasy of wearing a formal gown while riding a motor scooter. I’d probably go to prom alone and enjoy the time with my friends rather than wonder where my date was. I’d take more pictures! And… I’d dress my age. I’d wear something fun and sparkly! I’d go BRIGHT!
