That color would NOT look good against a fake tan.

I had my prom two years ago and I was in loovvee with my dress. Vintage from the 1950´s, gold, shimmery, classic 50´s style. I got it from vintageous.com. The quality was aammaaziing as all the clothes were back then and the price wasn't bad too, under $400.00. Best of all was that it was pretty much guarenteed that nobody would have a dress like mine, unlike some of my poor friends who way overpaid for Jessica McClintock dresses that every other girl was wearing, in various colors too at that. Sorry not to offend anybody who likes Jessica McClintock, but I have someothing against the "department store" prom dress look, if you get what I mean - too shiny, gaudy, un-unique in my opinion. Alas, I only wish I still had a excuse to buy gorgeou dresses again (unfortunately, there are few opportunities in college...)

I would go short....cocktail type of dress. That way after prom, you are not left with a long shiny...fake rhinestone....department store dress.You can wear your dress again, if its short. Im all for being different, so when everyone has those tacky long dresses in these horrendous colors, you can wear something short....Accesories are key though...make them extra special.!

^ i totally agree. i really don't like the department store dresses either. it's so typical. everything looks the same. around here we have something called WINDSOR. mostly every girl at my school gets her dress there.

Oh Gaultier_Bandit, you are so right, how can I forget about the fake rhinestones, some dresses I've seen make me feel like someone just took a bedazzler and went nuts with it . I agree that if you want a relatively more "practical" dress, then go with cocktail length as you'll be able to wear it for other occassions. However, if you have the right body (read: gorgeous, slim legs) I also like the idea of a A-line dress that hits mid-calf with vintage style heels (I guess I'm really big on vintage hrmm...). Plus, floor-length gowns seem like they would be just such a pain, because you will be on your feet all night - tripping on your dress while dancing, people stepping on your dress, the bottom of your dress sweeping over all the spilled punch and food crumbs

And if I may add, if you want a really, really practical dress, I think J.Crew has simple yet rather well-designed dresses that are both rather cheap and work for a lot of occasions - they might not be the most unique but I would take simple over fake rhinestone bedazzling anyday. Just my two cents

If had had a prom to go to, I would probably done the complete opposite of what seems to be the main consensus here (i.e. tasteful, can wear it again, etc). When else does one have the opportunity to dress up in a giant tulle pouf skirt, in pink?

You should have absolutely no trouble doing better than that, then

Looking pale and looking washed out are two different things If you look pale, hey, some of us are If you look washed out, then it's not your color & returning it is probably a good idea.

I'm thinking of buying this dress and dying it black...purple makes me look like death.


shop.hm.dk

And then silver accessories...I think I'll wear it with a tux jacket with the sleeves rolled up. And probably black patent flats.

This is what I wore to my Debs last Summer... I got it from Lipsy and I wore it with a few purple and gold bangles, purple shoes, purple clutch and gold hippy style chandelier earrings! I was so comfortable and loved it.... Now I have to find a new one for this years Debs! :O
