Darlings, obviously I am incapable of speaking for all of you; but I, for one, have always felt that December would be a far more appropriate time to hold prom, as opposed to the standard April or May dates. After all, in the words of crooner Andy Williams, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” The one time where you can feel the magic in the air, vibrating and sparkling and dancing around your person; when snowflakes and stars twinkle like angels, and each day is enveloped in a new sort of excitement that is yours for the taking.
But I digress; sadly, December has never before been the time for such an event. It is, however, the biggest shopping month of the year – in other words…a sublime moment to begin your search for perfect prom dresses and prom gowns.
Think about it, my loves; putting off such a purchase leaves you scavenging among the leftover racks weeks before the big day – all while juggling a full class load and social obligations. But December…
…December is a time when school is obsolete, and one can devote their full time and attention to weighing the benefits of a strapless neckline a la the Beaded Strapless Ball Gown with Full Tulle Skirt against a halter holdup like the Silky Knit Halter Gown with Beaded Brooch Detail; comparing and contrasting solid colors like the Chiffon Gown with Cascading Ruffle Detail, with fierce and fabuleux animal prints courtesy of the Charmeuse Animal Print Gown with Beading; and, most important, making the decision between a blissful ball gown like the Beaded Strapless Taffeta Pick Up Ball Gown, or a flirty frock a la the Short Strapless Tiered Tulle Dress.
As Wilhela Cushman once said, “Just around the corner in every woman's mind - is a lovely dress, a wonderful suit, or entire costume which will make an enchanting new creature of her.” Why not uncover such a glamorous garment during the season when the world is merry and bright, mais oui?
Why yes, Mr. Williams; I couldn’t agree more. It certainly is the most wonderful time of the year – for prom dress shopping, that is!
