Prom Queen

I remember my proms… I went to three. I was underwhelmed back in the day as to how few options I had. It was such a frustrating search for me. Of course, we never would have thought we could purchase a prom dress online… we went from store to store in New Hampshire, and I even tried things on that I knew I would hate because I just didn’t have the options other girls had (I know, right? Woe is me… up hill both ways, etc). Luckily, the plus size prom queens of the future are a bit better off. Endless trendy, vibrant, fun options!

What would I pick if I had to go to a prom this year? I’m so glad you asked (I was looking for an excuse to look at dresses and gowns)! Here are my picks:

sparkle front  sparkle back

A-Line/ Princess Prom Dress with Beading from JJ’s House- $182.99

purple short gown

Metallic Peacock Party Dress from Pacific Plex- now on sale for $64.99

black short:long gown

Night Moves Prom Dress from TJFormal.com- $378.00

short mint dress

Dressystar Short Lilac Dress (comes in a plethora of colors) from Amazon- $153.99

purple gown  white beaded

Beaded Maxi Dress ($199.00) &  Short Embellished Prom Dress ($185.00) from SimplyBe

green

*This is a pre-order only item, but it was so fun, I still had to share it*

Spring Green Beaded Chiffon High-Low Dress from Unique Prom- $310.00

Tip:

Do not be afraid to shop clearance racks and think outside the box. You don’t need to go to prom in a traditional Cinderella gown. Play with colors and styles. I know that I always say this, but you need something that suits your personality. Be true to yourself. Another budget tip is to make your own. Seriously. A few tailor-wise friends of mine made amazing prom dresses for themselves. If you’re a wiz with scissors and a sewing machine, rock it out!

    I could see you wearing that embelished, white dress… and rockin’ it. These are all super cute, and would look great on just about any figure. I really enjoyed today’s blog.
