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.
In honor of the concluding prom season, I thought I would post about one of my favorite dress sites. It might be related to the fact that the models posing in the clothes are breathtakingly beautiful, or it might be that the black-tie bedazzled masterpieces seem a bit impractical, but Jovani draws me in every time I take a peek at their website. They keep an eye on the trends and incorporate them in cocktail and ball-gown masterpieces. The dresses have parallels to Marchesa with their attention to detail, with use of color, and exotic fabric combinations. Most options are even too fancy for prom, as noted in the name of their labels “beyond evening” and “beyond prom,” filled with dresses for pageants and bridal parties. The merchandize is expensive and their prices are omitted from the site, but it is worth it to feast your eyes by fishing through their online catalog. Be warned though, as with every good designer there are some duds… in this case, sparkling duds. I advise you to avoid the ones that make you look like an ice skater, a seven layer cake, or a peacock. I know, kind of tempting. If you find the perfect one though, maybe you’ll even be inspired to throw a glam party, complete with masquerade masks and high style dresses. Don’t forget my invitation For those of you who have an excuse to spend the money on one of the dresses, I have picked out a few of my favorites. It was such a difficult task only choosing a few! Check out this website as well: Net Fashion Avenue. It is a Jovani retailer (and therefore has the prices and provides the opportunity to buy online).
