If I Were Going to Prom I'd Wear This!

It's officially Prom Season. Go to any sit down restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night and you are bound to see flocks of teenagers dressed to the nines sporting corsages and boutineers. It's so funny seeing it now and thinking how young they look because I'm sure people thought that same about me all those years ago while I was dining with my date for our oh so fancy dinner at the local Mexican restaurant.

Prom was a big deal at my high school. Girls would start shopping for dresses around Christmas, fry themselves in the tanning bed (I spray tanned!) for months, and even walk around with saran wrap around their waists to ensure the dress fit!

I love seeing pictures on Facebook of all the recent proms and seeing how the style trends change. For example, I remember during my prom years the two-piece look was falling out of style, but now it looks like it is back in full force.

I could look at dresses all day so it was very fun for me to put together this post on what I would wear if I were going to prom! Albeit, the only invitation I will be getting is to be a chaperone.




I distinctly remember thinking all of my prom dresses were the most beautiful creations on Earth and that I would wear them over and over again. No. They are all stuffed into the back of my closet collecting dust. If only options such as Rent the Runway had been available back in my day! Some great options for young girls for prom!

  1. It is crazy how much prom has changed since I graduated in 2009! We had formal formal dresses with a lot of detail and nowadays the dresses are so different and simple!

  3. Ohhhh I love this so much!!! Prom was MAJOR at our school. Now I'm feeling majorly old because this summer marks my ten year highschool reunion. Eeekkk.
    I love how the dress styles come in and out and in again!
    I wore a mint green, strapless big tulle bottom dress. These days it's all about the sleek!!! But a bit of poof is coming back hahaha

    That lemon on is so pretty, they're all so pretty!!! I just love prom, luckily my sister is going to her boyfriends this year then has her own next year so I've got a good couple of years to live vicariously through her! Hahahah

  12. If rent the runway existed when I was in high school I could have saved sooooo much money. My mom made me choose classic dresses that I could definitely wear now if I was like 20 lbs lighter.

  14. I think it's funny how short dresses are in style for formal dances now. We would never be caught dead in a short dress to prom! I loved both my prom dresses so much, and yet they too are collecting dust. I really need to donate them - a couple places in town rent them to girls who can't afford one. I LOVE that floral top on in the collage. THAT would be my dress if I were to do prom again! Can we just have an adult prom please? Or is that "weddings" once you are our age? haha

  17. Under the watchful eye of I turned into a legal counselor, I thought I could do things myself and not need to pay extravagant lawyer's expenses. Presently I am taught enough to realize that legal counselors are prepared to help you execute your authoritative archives accurately. The charge you pay is far less expensive than doing it without anyone's help and getting hit with surprising duty or legacy outcomes. Here are a couple of cases. The lawyer wore a

  19. Well these dresses are really nice, I like the second one especially. That yellow and white charming dress. Talking about mens clothing, there is a little problem with this kind of clothes. There is not so much good distributors of men fashion, I've been search for a couple of hours and found only this wholesale mens clothing distributor Inter gross. Good is that they do cover all the Europe.
