Good Causes for Your Prom Dresses – Helping Justify Buying your Dream Prom Dresses

Mar 28, 2012

dress prom dressesWhat is it about giving that makes us all feel so good? Whether spending an afternoon with kids making crafts, reading to the elderly, or just baking goods for a bake sale. While your parents may be looking at the price tag of your dream prom dress shaking their heads – sway them with a charitable idea like one of these below.

Organize – or just participate in – a dress collection. Take all of your formal gowns from years past and donate them to charity or a school in need of dresses. There’s currently a drive running at the Livingston Public Library, in Livingston New Jersey if you’d like to send your old dresses there!

Sell your old dress to a consignment shop. Not only will you be getting a little extra to help pay for your new dress, but you’ll also be much closer to paying for your 2012 prom dress much easier.

Make it a group effort – take selling your dress a step further and have a spring fashion sale with your friends. Get all your old, but still cute clothes together to sell as a group. You can use the funds to either help pay for your dresses and a limo – or donate the money to a charity. Or sell them to each other- so you’ll all get a new wardrobe out of the deal.

Being fashionable also means acting charitably. Your favorite designs and dresses may be someone’s new dreams when you donate your dress!

Fitness Tips for Fitting into Your Dream Dress

Mar 22, 2012

2012 short homecoming dressesWant a trim tummy for that cutout dress? Maybe you want to work on your thighs and calves to show them off. There’s so many revealing prom dress styles to choose, from the 2012 short homecoming dresses to slinky hi low dresses. We’re revealing a few tips that we’ve overheard in the store, heard from customers and see work wonders.

  • Turn those shopping partners into workout partners. There’s no better motivation to make it to the gym than to meet up with your friends.
  • Rather than walking in your new heels, pull on a pair of snug sneaks and walk up and down the stairs or a hill – Rocky Balboa style – to get the firm toned legs that you want for your hi-lo dress.
  • Join a dance class to get fit, and learn new moves for the prom floor. You’re not just paying for a workout; you’re also getting a new set of skills to show off.
  • If money’s an option, find a gym offering a promotional deal to get your workouts in right before the big dance. Then take what you learn with your workout routine and take it to your home or backyard for a fitness routine.

Weigh your costs and options, would you rather have the dress fitted to cover you, or feel great while working out for your prom dance?

No, we’re not talking about the pageant princesses on Toddler’s With Tiaras! We’re talking about the infamous JonBenet Ramsey! During her short time competing in beauty pageants this 6-year-old child pageant star from Boulder, Colorado, claimed many pageant titles.

  • JonBenet took home the division title for America’s Royal Miss in July 1996.
  • She took home the title of America’s Royale Miss Colorado Dream Queen in the America’s Royal Miss Beauty Pageant.
  • During the Sunburst National Pageant in Atlanta, Georgia, on August 13, 1996, JonBenet was just 6-years-old. But that didn’t stop her from going home with the pageant’s second place trophy!
  • She was also crowned Colorado’s Little Miss Christmas on December 17, 1996.
  • She won a medal for talent in the December 22, 1996 All-Stars Christmas Beauty Pageant in Colorado.

Pageant Designs would like to honor JonBenet Ramsey, the tiny beauty queen who loved dancing across the stage in the prettiest pageant dresses for little girls, and all of her accomplishments in the world of pageants.

prom dresses 2012

Cuter than a newborn bunny!

One of the best things about picking out your prom dress is the part where you draw inspiration from everything. There are the common places to turn to, like magazines and fashion shows, and then your more original sources, taken from movies and the spring!

We’ve drawn on Easter colors and themes for a few glamour looks to that may inspire your choices at prom this year!

Our Elegant Easter Picks

  • Pink and bubbly like a fresh cotton candy, pick a pink dress that celebrates the rosy pinks of spring. Pair your pinks with soft dangingly earrings.
  • While Easter service isn’t the same as the fun time you have at prom, you do dress up for both. Why not pick a winsome white prom dress, full of joy and possibilities for your prom night?
  • Flowers, floral, & fun! Whether a single flower at your waist, a floral strap, or an entire floral bustle, the floral look is sweeter than a basket of chocolates! Go over the top with floral bracelets as well!
  • A dress dipped into the whole basket of colors is sure to catch eyes. Look for layered tulle skirts and multicolored printed patterns that’s brighter than a rainbow on Easter morning!

How do you plan to dress up for Easter? Will you be wearing one of your short prom dresses to Easter services or parties?

Have you been looking through magazine after magazine, page after page of blogs, and countless other traditional and so-so ideas? Your 2012 homecoming should be a day to enjoy, a day for fun and new possibilities. So what sort of dress style should you be looking at? The one shoulder homecoming dresses selection of course!

  • One shoulder isn’t all about a single strap holding your dress up. Many of these stunning styles lend more fashion than support, with slinky one shoulder dress straps sliding across the chest like in this Allure Evenings  cocktail dress.
  • Spin the shoulder style in a new direction. These dynamically designed one shoulder dresses also come with sweet decorative embellishments, with single flowers or intricate shoulder long floral straps. The one shoulder accented chiffon black label dress offers just a single sexy shoulder strap that’s more for looks than anything else.
  • The one shoulder style can be demure, but there are still many dresses to be found with a thigh high slit as well. Embrace the wild side with a classic one shoulder look with the beaded accent chiffon Alyce Designs dress.

The classical grace and elegance of a one shoulder dress are always a hot choice. Whether it’s the delicate beading, dazzling rhinestones or unique spin on the dress with a short sleeve homecoming dress you’ll definitely make your mark on the homecoming dance floor.
