Fame and Partners Prom Dresses

It may be a bit premature for prom season, but it’s never too early to start dress shopping! Fame and Partners Prom Dresses is an Australian boutique website that features celebrity inspired dresses at great prices. The website is easy to use, and I love everything they offer, like free returns and the opportunity to customize your own dress! You can even take their fun style quiz and receive $20 off your purchase. You’ll find it easy to channel stars like Rihanna and Taylor Swift with gowns resembling their 2013 Grammy choices. Best of all, even though the website is advertised as a prom site, the inventory isn’t childish. The selections work just as well for someone in their 20’s attending a wedding or banquet. To give you some of ideas of what might fit your fancy, I made a few recommendations based on style identity. Check out FameandPartners.com now!

Girlie- Sweet takes the cake on this steal of a deal mini-dress ($99) that is ideal for any cocktail party. A crisscross sweetheart neck has internal boning and fine pleating. The perfect dress for a great twirl.

Sexy- Work this halter dress ($229) with a high side slit. The long skirt and pretty red color scream old Hollywood glamour.

Wild- Try the peplum top ($79) with a cascading high-low hem. Pair it with a column skirt to make a big impact on the dance floor.

Brand Corner- Free People

Free People, the most whimsical of the Urban Outfitters, Anthrologie, and Free People triple threat company, provides fashion with a combination between Western vintage and modern hippie.  It’s easy to recognize a Free People piece based on its construction, patterns, and fabrics even though the style can hardly be compressed into a single word though boheme is the most fitting. You’ll find a mix of the trends (they incorporated neon a lot last few years and carry lace and hook-eye bralettes) and the items that celebrate quirkiness and originality (bell bottom patchwork jeans anyone?). Here are my picks and some shopping tips:

1. The sizing can be a little off. If something if meant to fit tighter it will certainly hug your body and you’ll want to find the size you regularly wear. However, if you pick up a loose shirt or dress, it will probably of slip off your shoulders or slink far past your hips. Make sure you determine whether or not you’ll need a camisole underneath and pair it with the right undergarments. I’ve purchased a bunch of their baggier tops and almost had a wardrobe malfunction because I paid attention to the label rather than the appearance.

2. Free People has a line Intimately Free People with all types of goodies. While all intimates are under this collection, not everything in it the collection is falls under the categories of undergarments, sleep wear, or lounge wear. For example, there are a lot of bodycon dresses, sweatshirts and even slips that can be worn outside the home. Use your own discretion to determine how it would look best. If your answer is “the bedroom” keep it in your “for inside eyes only” drawer to stay modest.

3. On their website they have a huge vintage stop. Because those pieces are truly one of a kind they sell out quickly. Right now they are selling ten different collections ranging from Military and Lace to retro Missoni. The items are not returnable but the website provides exact measurements, and rating of the condition, and infrequently the era.
