Here's a little something you didn't know about me: I attended what must be the equivalent of the American prom night in Singapore when I was 18. At that time, I was an anxious and serious teenager; prom seemed so frivolous and I wasn't too excited about it. I remember borrowing my best friend's very simple tube dress for the night, slapped on some makeup and grudgingly went along with the night.
On hindsight, I wish I could have shook some sense into my 18 year old self, ask her to loosen up and have a good time. My one major regret was not getting into the whole girly prep routine - the dress shopping, the hair and makeup; just imagine all the fun that I had missed out on.
So young girls, take heed. If you have prom to attend, please please do go all out and find yourself a beautiful gown, because the reality is, after prom, life does not present many opportunities for gown wearing at all. Take the opportunity to get dolled up, look beautiful and feel glamourous.
MissesDressy.com, my new blog sponsor, whose online store is filled with so many beautiful gowns made for a glamourous prom night. MissesDressy.com provides high fashion and designer gowns for various functions: proms, weddings, galas, cocktail parties and stocks a ton of designer names including my favourites Jovani and Sherri Hill.
I've just spent a happy few hours lusting over hundreds of their dresses; I think I'm pretty partial to dresses with a bit of lace or embellishments. If I could relive the 18th year of my life, these beautiful dresses would certainly have made it to my wishlist.
What about you? What type of dress will you wear to the prom?
