I Wish People Would Stop Picking on the 'Prom Bat' Girl!

I think the outfit she wore for prom was amazing! Fair enough, she has not got her model pose down yet, but neither did I at 16 years old! Did anyone notice what an awesome figure this girl has, much jealous!

We all have unflattering photo's taken of us, and yeah, a lot of us are ribbed by friends, and it's a laugh. But imagine those photo's spreading round the whole internet and everyone talking about you, not nice.

I was going to post my own unflattering photo's in support, but I have of course binned them, lol! My grandma is the only one who has the really embarrassing photos. So here's a photo of me looking very pale, and being stupid at work in a china shop when I was 18!


And this one at a wedding, looks like I've just wandered in randomly from a festival, clutching a drink. It was when the bride threw the boquet, of course it headed straight for me, I could have easily caught it, but I stood back and there was a scrum to get the boquet. (the folk law is the person who catches it marries next)

And the third a dazzling number, made from  organza and silk, this one has a rhinestone detail bodice, with large bow under the bust. All three dresses have nice full skirts, which just scream PROM!


 

Three Pretty Light Blue Dresses For Proms

The three pretty pale blue prom dresses below are all studded with sparkles! The first is a very structured dress,  this cute little dress is made from very light blue organza, with a lace-up back (corset style back) and fitted bodice that is scattered with darker blue sequins.

The second is a flirty little number, this dress is also very light blue organza fabric, with a classy, scrolling floral pattern picked out on the bust in silver.

The third little blue prom dress is made from organza, in a light sky blue color. The bust is fitted and slightly rouched, with gorgeous rhinestone details on the bodice of the dress.




 Two Short Prom Dresses in Mid-Blue and Aqua 

Two short and flirty dresses, both very different, the first a tight fitting number, with gorgeous ruffled, rosette, fabric details on the shoulder and skirt. The main dress color is a dark aqua, bordering on mid-blue, with complimenting floral fabric panels, and sparkling sequins. This is an unusual but cute prom dress!

The next is a vision of aqua and lime/light green. These colors work well together and make for an interesting dress. The fabric is Soft Tulle, with beautiful sequin details on the bodice, a rhinestone ring on the green belt, and larger sequins sparkling in the skirt.

2 Short Navy Prom Dresses

The 1st dress is one of my favorites on this page, I love the dark blue color, and interesting leaf details on the skirt and shoulder of the dress. The dress has a very plunging neckline and I suspect tape would be needed to hold that bust in place!

The next short navy prom dress is an understated but beautiful dress, it has a sparkling necklace neckline, slightly rouched bodice, and flowing skirt, this one is made from polyester.

These two beautiful gowns are two of my favorites on this page. The peacock gown is really lovely, I really like the blue color of the dress, with its yellow overlay, and the peacock detail on the bodice, is to die for!

The second dress is a stunner too! I like the way it is quite delicate as far as pattern ball gowns go, but still has plenty of color and interest. Both of these designs would make awesome prom dresses.

 Gorgeous Floral Evening Dresses 

I want the first dress here, the green and blue flower print evening gown! Why? Well, I love the colors, the dress is very eye-catching, yet muted enough to be worn anywhere. I also love the way the flower print runs along the bottom of the dress, and the detailing on the waistband is gorgeous.

 The second dress is a beauty too, it has pink and red tones, and a pretty floral pattern that runs throughout the fabric of the dress.

Strapless Watercolor Floral Prom DressStrapless Long Gown With Sweetheart Cut Neckline


Floral print evening dresses don't have to be all-out color, the two dresses below are fine examples of muted flower patterns. These flower pattern dresses focus on just a few colors to draw together their scheme, I like the way the colors compliment and work with each other.

I have no idea what the model is doing with her leg in the second pic, I tried to do it myself as it looks an impossible stance, guess what? I fell over :0

Gorgeous Animal Print Ball Gowns 

I love, love, love, these two beautiful leopard print prom gowns below! I really like the colors used (I know I keep saying that, but I am an artist, and I love color!) What I love about these colors are that the designers have used the kind of colors that you would find in a Savannah, or Jungle, which really, really works with the animal print.

 These dresses prove that leopard print can be very classy!

Two Very Different Zebra Print Dresses

The first dress is a classy black ball gown, with a beautiful zebra inspired bodice, I love the way the flower details on this dress cascade down the front! Quite an unusual dress and very pretty.

The next dress is a really interesting combination of sunflowers and zebra print. The prints on this dress work really well together, and make for a unique evening dress. I like the colors used here too, perfect  for summer.

The second pink patterned evening dress is lovely, a jewel encrusted bodice and pretty pink ribbon accent at the waist, leave you in no doubt that this is party time! The model looks overjoyed to be wearing it!

Shoes To Match A Pattern Ball Gown Or Pattern Prom Dress 


If you are going for a pattern ball gown or pattern prom dress, you want your dress to have the most impact, I would suggest wearing a pair of shoes in one color, and not patterned shoes.

 Choose a color from out of the pattern on your dress and pick a pair of shoes to match, if you find this hard then go for gold, silver, rhinestone, or black shoes.
