I am in a dilemma. There are two potential dresses for prom currently hanging in my wardrobe. Only one can be kept. So, reader, please vote on which dress you think is prom-perfect (I’m not usually this indecisive, so an explanation is below).

Dress 1:


  • It is well fitted and flatters my figure.
  • It is the more elegant and sophisticated (and grown-up) of the two.
  • It would become my much-needed LBD*


  • It is black; hardly the ideal colour for a summer prom.
  • It may require a bit of tweaking (needle and thread and tit-tape)
  • My father does not approve of the missing shoulder.

Dress 2:


  • Everybody who has seen it agrees that it suits me. It is just like my personality was made into dress, and voila!
  • Very summery colour and also fits perfectly.
  • My parents approve (which matters to me because I want them to be happy)


  • Is it too informal for a show-stopping prom?
  • It’s not very… well… sexy.
  • Needs some awesome accessories to glam it up (but then again so does Dress 1).

Here is a picture of my Year 11 prom dress; to add some context:

A Solution

“Procratination is the thief of time.” So true.

I’m sorry to say that this blog that I have slaved over is now my excuse to avoid revision. So I will be limiting my blogging in the run-up to exams. It’s the only solution.

I still need to look for a prom dress though, so until the 23rd June expect my infrequent posts to focus on dresses and bargains and prom hair (nothing to sickly sweet though…). I’ll leave you my lovely reader with this code that entitles you to 20% off at Warehouse until Thursday 9th of June:
