As a french girl, I've always watched prom pictures with a strange fascination. We don't have that in France. We're not given the opportunity to ever wear those colorful and princess-like dresses, except maybe when we’re bridesmaid bud I would have asbolutely loved to have that.
I have to admit that having to search for a dress would have been very stressful... I mean, it already is when I have to pick one for NYE, so i can't even imagine how anxious I would have been to choose the perfect prom dress... But so so fun at the same time!
I can totally picture my friends and I, having sleepovers where we would try and find the perfect dresses for each other! I can picture the messenger discussions we would have created, sending each other links of the dresses we would have found on the internet, asking for opinions, asking for help when we’d be completely lost and clueless about what we should choose! It would have been so complicated and so freaking fun at the same time and I’m a little sad that we didn’t get to have that.
So what I’ve done is that I’ve pretended, for a whole afternoon, that I had to find myself a dress for prom, and I’ve searched through hundreds of pages to find the perfect one. Of course I could settle on just one and had to actually pick a few, but here are the ones that I fell in love with and that I would love to have an event to wear. I've picked them from Pickedlooks and I think they would be perfect for both prom night, or a fancy night out with friends/date/colleagues. Hopefully this will give you some inspiration if you're in need of it, and help you a little. You can also check the short ball dresses, which are so insanely beautiful, this is totally making me feel like a princess to imagine myself wearing them.
I also recommend you check the whole website. They really do have a large variety of choices, so whetever you're searching for you'll be sure to find it on the website.
