Sadly, I never went to any of my proms in High School. Everybody said I would regret it, but it was too awkward, and too much effort. I must say that I do regret it a bit because as you get older you realize that there are very few formal events in life. I thought that I’d have plenty occasions to wear a fancy dress, so I didn’t really care. My senior year I was camping during prom. My parents didn’t give me enough money to get a dress that I actually liked so I didn’t even try. For me, it is really only about the dress. There were a lot less places to find a pretty, affordable dress when I was of prom age (10-11 years ago).
I know it’s coming up on prom season for many of you guys out there. If you haven’t got your dress yet you can find a beautiful one from Formal Dress Australia, for my Australian readers. They ship to a few other countries as well, including America. If you are from Adelaide, check out Formal Dresses Adelaide.
Do you notice a trend in all of these dresses that I have selected? I really love dresses with lots of flow-y volume. Many of them are made out of varieties of tulle. I also love a lot of embellishment, which is not surprising. I think all of these dresses are super pretty. One great thing about them is that many come in a variety of colors. I think the blue one is my favorite.
