DressProm Layaway Program

Apr 4, 2017

Prom budget blues getting you down? No worries! With the DressProm Layaway Program, you can put your dream dress on hold and pay for it in installments over a 90-day period, allowing you more time to pay for your dress without risking losing your dress of choice.

Unlike some dress stores, DressProm’s Layaway Program is available on any dress in our inventory including prom dresses! This includes brand name dresses from designers like Alyce Paris, Blush Prom and Madison James, as well as quinceanera dresses, homecoming dresses and even tuxedos for women. Layaway is even available for out-of-stock, special order dresses, so you can purchase your dream dress without worrying about it coming back into stock!

In order to take advantage of the Layaway Program, all you have to do is put down a one-time initial deposit of 60% of the dress price. Then, the dress will be put on hold for up to 90 days, allowing you to make payments whenever you like. DressProm offers payment plans for as low as $50 every month, or bi-weekly payments of larger payments if you prefer to pay your dress off faster. No matter how you choose to pay for it, DressProm’s DressProm Layaway Program enables every girl to get her dream prom dress, no matter what her budget may be.

If you want to learn more about the DressProm Layaway Program or want to find out how to put a dress on layaway today, contact one of our friendly customer service staff members. They will help you to pick the perfect layaway plan for your budget, as well as place any special orders on out-of-stock prom dresses. Once you find the dress of your dreams, give a DressProm associate a call at 864-263-4371!

Homecoming Regality – How to Dress for the Homecoming Court

Aug 22, 2016

So you’ve been picked for homecoming court: congratulations! Now the question is, what do you wear? Whether you need a homecoming court outfit for the pre-homecoming festivities, such as the homecoming game promenade, or are looking for your dream homecoming court gown for the big night, DressProm has all the most glamorous numbers around. Your homecoming weekend outfit should represent your big personality and perhaps pay tribute to the regal traditions of the queen’s court or your school colors.

For the Homecoming Game

If your school’s traditions require the court to appear on the field at the homecoming game, you’ll need a special outfit for the occasion. Unlike your homecoming gown, this outfit can be on the casual side, but you’ll still want to be semi-dressed up. We love the idea of showing your school spirit with a prideful style done in your team colors. Court members are often asked to wear boutonnieres or corsages, so make sure you account for that when picking a dress.

For the Homecoming Dance

If you’ve been selected for homecoming court, you’re probably feeling the pressure of finding that picture-perfect gown. We always recommend court members wear something seriously show-stopping — after all, the whole school’s going to be looking at you! Channel your inner queen before the big announcement with a ball gown homecoming dress and you’ll feel like a 21st century Cinderella. We adore Blush’s line of two-piece homecoming gowns for the season, like the spectacular Two-Piece Blush Ball Gown!

aUGUST - 5August - 6

If you’d like to show your edgy side without compromising the classic princess look, you can always opt for a cupcake homecoming gown with a short, flirty skirt that will have you twirling all over the dance floor. To channel your inner royalty and pay tribute to the fall and winter homecoming season traditions, consider a dark-colored homecoming dress in maroon, navy or gold. No matter which style you choose, you can’t go wrong when you complete the look with a dazzling tiara.

From Prom Dresses to Eyeliner: What You Need to Know About Beauty

Jan 24, 2014

Snag these easy beauty tips to lighten your purse when you head out prom dress shopping!

Snag these easy beauty tips to lighten your purse when you head out prom dress shopping!

What do you pack in your purse for beauty purposes throughout the day? The average woman’s purse is close to 30 lbs. – yes, that much – but is it all necessary? We have some tips to help you cut down on all the beauty products you carry around in your purse! So when you’re shopping for prom dresses or just having a day out on the town, you can enjoy it without carrying around all that weight.

  • To prevent smudging your eyeliner throughout the day, blot your eyelids with an oil-removing tissue before applying eye makeup.
  • If you do smudge your eyeliner or mascara under your eye, dab a non-medicated chapstick underneath the eye and the makeup should come off with a tissue.
  • Having a static problem with your hair – or even worse – your skirt? Use a small amount of lotion (preferably ones with no dye involved) on either the outside of your legs/tights, or ends of your hair. The moisture will help nip static electricity in the bud!
  • Use a SPF moisturizer before you put on your makeup in the morning, even if it’s winter.
  • Make sure you check the labels of your chapstick before you buy them – some of the most popular brands contain alcohol, which dry out your lips.
  • Broke your favorite eye shadow? No problem! Empty the eye shadow crumbs out onto a paper towel, add just a bit of rubbing alcohol to the container, put the crumbs back in and press down until it’s all combined again!
  • Don’t throw away your mascara before it’s time, even if it seems like it may be all gone. Add a few drops of contact solution to the mascara tube; shake, and your mascara will be brought back to life! And also – this prevents clumping too.

Have some serious leftover eye makeup from homecoming 2013? Check out our DIY Makeup Remover Wipes!

We all know what it’s like to have a great night at a dance or out with your friends on the town, and you wake up with raccoon eyes. Sometimes, it can be difficult to get all of your eye makeup off, especially when soap and water just doesn’t always do the trick. However, we have an awesome way for you to make your own makeup remover wipes so getting that black eyeliner off can be a synch – and not to mention affordable!

DIY Makeup Remover Wipes (adapted from HomemadeMamas.net)

Ingredients and Materials Needed:

  • 1 roll of heavy-duty paper towels
  • 2 food storage containers big enough to fit ½ roll of paper towels in each
  • A serrated knife or a utility knife, sharpened
  • 4 cups of boiled water that has been cooled
  • 4 Tbsp. of Baby Shampoo
  • 1 Tbsp. of Organic Coconut Oil

Directions:

  • Cut the roll of paper towels in half with your utility or serrated knife.
  • In your food storage container, microwave your water, coconut oil, and baby shampoo for 20 seconds.
  • Take half of the mixture and separate it into your other food storage container.
  • Take the center cardboard tubes out of the two paper towel halves. Place each half, cut side down, in the two food storage containers so they soak up the liquid.
  • Gently push the halves down as they absorb more liquid.
  • Once the whole roll is absorbed, put the lid of the food storage container on and flip over so the mixture is fully absorbing the half of roll.
  • Let sit overnight in the container, and then you’re ready to use.

How to Prep for Homecoming 2013: The Last Minute Tips You Need to Look Your Best

Oct 4, 2013

Follow these tips on how to prep for homecoming 2013 to look and feel your best!

Follow these tips on how to prep for homecoming 2013 to look and feel your best!

You’ve searched through countless homecoming dresses for 2013, found the perfect gown, shoes, and accessories, now what? Prepping for your homecoming night is essential to looking your best when you win that coveted crown, and DressProm.net has a timeline of what you need to do before the big dance!

A week before the event: You’ll want to start drinking that daily amount of water that your doctor told you about! Start by drinking eight, 8 oz. cups of water per day. This will help hydrate you properly, as well as keep your skin clear and your body’s immune system in check. In addition to drinking water, you also need to keep a regiment of daily vitamins. Vitamins like Vitamin E, B-12, and other multi-vitamins can help to keep your skin clear from breakouts, as well as helping to maintain a stable immune system.

Five days before the event: Need a little extra TLC on your eyebrows? Today’s the day to do it! Whether you wax, pluck, or thread to maintain the shape of your eyebrows, performing the actual process of hair removal works best about 4-5 days before the event. This is to help prevent redness or a breakout from chemicals (if you have sensitive skin) right before you head out to the dance. Also, this is a great time to do a trial run of your hair up-do for the big night. Get with your hair stylist or person that’s going to be helping you to your hair, and start playing around with different ways to do it.

Three days before the event: Time to do a trial run of your makeup for the big night! If possible, try on your whole outfit together, with makeup and hair, to make sure everything looks exactly how you’d like it to look. If it’s not how you want it to look for your big night, you can make changes accordingly and within enough time so you aren’t rushing to get things done. Three days before the event is also a great time to make sure things like your flowers, limousine, and dinner reservations are all in check, so you can have a stress-free night!

The night before the event: Treat Yourself! We love to partake in this at DressProm.net, especially the night before homecoming. Take some time for you and get your hands and feet manicured to perfection. Perhaps you can try out one of our DIY Face Masks, like our Chocolate Oatmeal Mask or Avocado Mask to keep your skin in tip-top shape. Also – keep in mind not to wash your hair the night before unless absolutely necessary. Up –do’s hold better for the night if your hair has its own, natural oils in it. If you have a pimple that decides to make its way to your face the night before, put a dab of toothpaste (yes, we said toothpaste) on it to eliminate swelling and redness! And most importantly – get some sleep!

Dry Skin for Homecoming – Be Gone! Banish it With Our Avocado Moisturizing Face Mask

Try out this awesome, moisturizing avocado mask before you go to homecoming 2013!

Try out this awesome, moisturizing avocado mask before you go to homecoming 2013!

With this time of the year comes something that all divas’ dread: dry skin. Whether it’s your nose or around your forehead, this seasonal annoyance can be prevented with two of your favorite household ingredients. Who knew that mixing an avocado and honey together could help you banish the dry skin so you can dance the night away during homecoming 2013 in pure confidence?

Avocado & Honey Moisturizing Face Mask

Ingredients:

  • 1 Avocado, ripe, skinned, and mashed
  • ½ cup of Organic Honey

Directions:

Cut the avocado around the pit, twisting both sides in opposite directions until the sections separate from the pit. Scoop the pit out of the half with a spoon and throw away. Next, take each section of the avocado, cut into smaller, square sections. Then take your spoon, run it around the part where the skin meets the flesh of the vegetable and spoon into a bowl. Mash the avocado until it is a paste, and then mix in the half of cup of organic honey. Mix these two ingredients until smooth.

Next, you’ll apply this mixture to your whole face, or just the problem areas, for at least 15 minutes. Wait until the mask is dry, and then remove it with a damp washcloth. Make sure you’re doing all you can to prevent those dry spots so you can enjoy your homecoming 2013 free of worry!
