Be Confident and Wear That Daring Dress

Sep 29, 2009

I recently bought this dress that I absolutely adored – it was an A-line dress with a leopard print heart-shaped neckline, a satin deep pink bow on the side, and a black floaty bottom. The leopard print was a bit daring for my style, but the dress just looked so adorable.

But! About a week before the event, I started to have some doubts – what if the dress was a little too daring for my style, and was more of a miss than a hit? I kept questioning the dress, and nearly returned it for another. I then realized that a personal style isn’t meant to be stationary, and it’s fun to mix up my style and try different clothing personalities. Sure, there’s those famous figures who have such iconic style, but could you imagine dressing in the basically the same type of shirt and jewelry every day? Not for me.

If you’re on the fence between choosing the funky dress or going with a safer style, I urge you to be daring and go for that dashing dress! Sure, you’ll need to muster up some courage, but have confidence that it’ll look great and even if all eyes are on you, they’ll be saying how great you look. Make a splash and have confidence knowing that you’re embracing your adventurous side, and likely encouraging other girls to do the same!

For The Girls: How To Choose A (Fun) Homecoming Date

Sep 2, 2009

The homecoming dance, or “homecoming” as it’s simply referred to at most schools, is a slightly less-formal-than-prom event, but still gives students the chance to dress up in their most stylish formal wear and enjoy an evening of dancing and socializing with friends. Here’s the hard part: choosing your date. You want to choose a date that you’re going to have a great time with. Here’s our tried-and-true tips for choosing a homecoming date you’ll actually have fun with:

1. Comfortable – Sure, the quarterback of the football team may be good-looking, but do you only have the jitters and are a little tongue-tied around him? Homecoming is meant for fun, so look for a guy that you are comfortable talking to and joking around with, even if it means choosing a guy-friend over a crush.

2. Camera-Friendly – Does he like being in photos? Photos are a homecoming-must, and perfect for adding some life to your Facebook wall! Choosing a guy who isn’t camera-shy can make those photos much more fun, and help you look more relaxed and even more pretty in them, too.

3. Reliable – We’ve all heard the homecoming horror stories, where the date decides last minute that he can’t go, forgot to buy the tickets, or had something else scheduled for that day. Let’s face it, both guys and girls can be flakey sometimes, so be sure you choose a guy who’s known to be reliable and will show up at your doorstep on time.

4. Gels With Your Friends – You’ll remember your homecoming dance for years to come, and will likely share stories with your friends for just as long! Choose a date that gets along with your friends so that you’ll be able to enjoy everyone’s company and have a great time as a group!

Don’t stress over choosing the perfect date, choose a fun date! Your slightly geeky guy-pal will likely be much more fun at homecoming than the guy you’ve ogled at but haven’t actually spoken to. Enjoy your homecoming, and be sure to tell us all at DressProm how it went!
