Prom 2012 Part 2

Time for Part 2! Let's get started!

Sweetheart Deep Purple Papaprazzi Prom Dress $450*UPDATE* this dress was taken off the website unfortunately after I made this post. But I can't find a dress that was close enough to compare to it :(

Deep Sky Blue Sweetheart Chiffon Column Prom Dress $148

So I LOVE both of these dresses (sorry about the pic quality of the second one!) I absolutely love sweetheart necklines and usually only buy dresses with sweethearts on them because they are so feminine and fun! But I love the color of both the dresses, along with the beading on the second and the full embellishment on the bodice of the first. The assymetrical chiffon of the second dress is awesome to me because it just makes the dress look more fun! I love both of them but the second dress is 302 DOLLARS LESS!? It's amazing! Either way you will look like a million bucks!

Jovani Jewel Embroidered Long Mermaid Prom Dress $589


Terani 95230P Strapless Mermaid Prom Dress  $298


2012 Jovani Red Mermaid Prom Gown $179


So I DID choose 3 dresses for this one because the intial two I found I felt the second one wasnt as affordable as we would all like so I found another equally as awe-inspring, more affordable option. I like mermaid dresses for prom because there aren't many other occasions a girl gets to dress up this much when theyre constricted to an appropriate for the age dress code. To me, when you're a teenager, you're young and need to get all the crazy, on the edge clothing ideas you have out of your system. So dress a little sexier with this mermaid style and skip it on your wedding for a more mature gown. I've found that a lot of people get mermaid and drop waist confused. In my head, mermaid is very fitted to about 3 to 4 inches above the knee while drop waist is about 9 or 10 inches below your belly button. Between the two, I like the mermaid better, I honestly find the drop waist to not be very flattering on most types. It adds weight on the bottom half, so if you are top heavy it will balance you out and if you have absolutely no curve it will add on the bottom. It is stilll very risky and must make sure it fits absolutely perfect. The mermaid shows off and embraces your curves. (Who wouldn't want that?!) But I love all these dress but they were picked obviously based off prices. But I really can't tell from just the pictures which one is more expensive than the other; they all have different feels and emotions attached to them, they really can't be compared as to which one is better!
