Where do you shop?

For those that don't know, it is Prom Season.

I have been shopping my little heart out with DN2. Her prom is at the end of May and her schedule just opened up about a week and a half ago. Hockey Season is now over, she played her last game in Canada two weeks ago :( She needs a prom dress and it isn't easy!

She favours the halter type dress and it is what suits her the best. She has a very large bust (38C,D) and I love that she wants full length. It makes the shoe thing not as big of a deal.

And I have to get some dressy things as well. I had a baby shower two weeks ago, then I have a wedding shower, a wedding, and a christening to attend this summer and I don't think my usual track pants and hoodie will go over too well at these events.

I need to find more shops geared towards my age group without the dowdy "my mother-in-law would wear that" look.

But I love looking at these dresses! Do you have a favourite?

Where do you shop?

Hmm, Prom season certainly has come a long way, in a really good way. You have served to remind me of my first prom dress. Don't get me wrong, I know my mother meant wel, and the selection wasn't exactly prime in a small NH town, but the satin top, and floofy bottom in sunflower yellow made a skinny kid like me look like something out of the circus.... and it made my complextion turn to something akin to a Star Trek character. Needless to say I have never worn yellow again, can't even stand it on walls. By the time it was PROM season for my daughter I was in the city and the selectioons were gorgeous. sigh.

Prom dresses in small town Maine are also hard to come by. Looks like you are on the right track!

What a pretty blog you have! Good luck finding the right dress(es!) - it's always so stressful finding just the right one for these occasions. I love the first and third dresses!
