Prom 411

Bonjour, ladies!

Prom is just weeks away and every girl is trying to find that special dress. While surfing through the web, I found two great websites: and The first website features dresses ranging in price from 100 to 400 dollars. The second website has tons of affordable dresses, and of course I picked out a few under 100 dollars. Here are some of my favorites for practically any kind of girl. I hope that in some way I can help you find the dress you want, or even spark your mind into designing your own like me!

Lets start things off with


The two dresses below range from 100 to 300 dollars. The one on the left is a coral colored dress, while the one on the right is a baby pink. Either may be purchased in sizes 2-26.


These fun and colorful dresses range from 100 to 250 dollars. The one on the left is really comfortable to wear since it's a halter top dress. The dress on the right is a fuchsia strapless dress with a sprinkle of glitter on the top edges. Either of these dresses is available in sizes 2-26.

Rock-n-Roll Chick

The roll-n-roll chick dresses, as I like to call them, are totally comfortable. They are short, sexy, and still classy, and can be played up by adding really cool accessories and a wild kind of hairstyle. These are also available in sizes 2-26.

It's now time to move on to Cute and cheap ... what more can a girl ask for???!!!


The dresses below (believe me or not) are under 100 dollars. Most of them range from 75 to 100 dollars. These are really good dresses because you don't have the hassle of holding up that long train on these long gowns. Plus, they have really cute designs and bows just like the one on the right. Sizes vary for these dresses since they're in very high demand.


I really like these dresses because they're simple and still eye-catching. Again, the sizes vary since they're affordable and in high demand.


Hey, this isn't over yet! We still have to review some of my favorite shoes!! I found a cool website called that featured many shoes with fresh and unique styles. But of course these are pricy, so enjoy!

I would suggest that if you liked any of these items, go ahead and visit the websites to get more information about the sizes and the exact prices. With that said, I hope that you found this article fun, informative, and helpful.

Good luck during prom night, ladies!
