YA Prom Dress Shopping

As seniors in high school, P.E. and I will both be attending prom this year. As a result, there hasn't been a day that I haven't been fussing over my dress. I've stalked  the internet dry and now believe that I have a general idea of what I want. All that's is left is finding and acquiring the dress.

Unlike me, some of these YA protagonist seem to have that covered. The gorgeous dress theme is not a new one, but every now and then there are covers that exhibit some dresses that make it hard for us to keep our jaws from hitting the floor.

Roses are Red




These big and bright dresses are nothing short of show stoppers. The dress offered in Rumor is more about the effect of the red colour but The Girl in the Steel Corset spices up the red with a corset and a designed tail. The reds come to a finish with this years contribution to the list of otherworldly dresses. The Winner's Curse has a dress only a prom queen can where.

The Storm is Brewing





There is nothing like a gorgeous blue/green dress. The stormy blue dress of Across A Star-Swept Sea is obscured by the tides but it managed to bedazzle us anyway. 

Goddess sure doesn't have a contemporary prom dress style but there is an outfit to suit everyone. This one is perfect for those with an appreciation for the vintage. 

These Broken Stars features not a dress, but a gown, one fairly belonging to the daughter of the richest man in the universe. I adore the flowy detailing and emerald green colour.

A Dazzling Shade of White



I've adored Entwined's dress of years now. It is the dress ever girl wants to wear as she heads towards her castle.

The Vixen, takes us back to the 20s with it's gorgeous lace fit dress. This style has returned to fashion with the Royal Wedding and Kate's stunning gown. It's a perfect classical choice.

Lastly, we have the ultimate white dress. Not only is it enormous and hard to ignore, but it's detailed and delicate at the same time; a breath taker.

Now for the fun part. I want to end this post with a competition. The Ultimate Fantasy Ball Gown contest. Winner gets a lot of love. 

I'll start the voting with my choice, it's tough but I think The Winner's Curse wins it for me.

  1. Despite loving the ones from These Broken Stars and The One, I have to agree that the one from The Winner's Curse is just too gorgeous for words!
    I hope you ladies find your perfect dress for prom!

    1. I was also stuck on those three, but The Winner's Curse has a level of intricacy in the dress that is unmatched.

      I think a more realistic choice would be Vixen's dress, it's what I'm looking for :)

  2. I loved this post! It's hard to pick among these amazing dresses, but I just went with Entwined because I really like how floofy it is (that's a word right?). I love the Winner's Curse one though - the color is just what I like!

    Good luck with the prom dress search!

    1. For years every time I thought princess dress, Entwined popped into my head. It's just perfect. And no floofy isn't weird, though I wonder is it a hybrid of fluffy and poofy? I might start using it XD

    1. I know I just wish there was a zoom button or something so I could keep looking at it.
