I loved prom season. I remember sitting in Physics with my friend Jackie drawing tiny dress designs in the margins of our notes.
For me Prom had little to do with the romance, the dinner or even the after-party. For me, Prom was a chance to mimic the walk of a Hollywood starlet.
I loved dress shopping but was often disappointed by the lack of choice. In the early to mid 90’s full length prom dresses had fallen from fashion. Short cocktail dresses and form-fitting 3/4 length gowns were the style. Eventually, my mother and I began to browse patterns and fabrics to re-create one of the dresses I sketched in Physics Class.
I was more than curious when dressfirst.com asked me to take a look at their collection Prom Dress 2014.
I am amazed. Nearly 20 years have passed and now at long last the fashions I love are en vogue.
My former teen self would love the elegant lines, the swoop of the skirts and beautiful crystal details in the gowns from Dress First.
Now, as a mother of three young daughters, it’s the modest elegance of the dresses I love most. Each Prom Dress has beautiful draping lines that will flatter most figures- full or otherwise.
What I like most about this collection of dresses is their beauty without overt sexiness. Which, if you ask me, is a refreshing change of pace.
Special stick-on bras are not needed with this collection. A simple strapless number will do just fine, and in some cases a regular bra will work too. Let’s be honest, our teens are a bit young to know about all those beauty tricks.
Dress First dresses are available in a variety of shades and hues for every skin tone and personality.
The dresses shown here are a small sample of my favorite styles from the Dress First collection. There are literally pages of dresses available at dressfirst.com, but this one is my favorite:
Isn’t wonderful to see elegance and glamour making a comeback?
