Red Carpet Worthy Prom Dresses

k150_23SZDheel iconAhh the prom. It’s one of those milestone memories that can make or break your high school years. It’s important to have the right date and the right dress. I remember searching high and low for my ultimate prom dress – you want to be elegant, a little bit sexy but not too much so that the other girls “will talk” and most importantly, it has to be perfect.

Prom dresses have come a long way since the stereotypical scratchy, taffeta princess-sleeve numbers featured in bad prom pictures. Now you can look like you’re going on the red carpet to the Oscars and the dresses can double as formal wear for other occasions, including weddings.

I discovered the JenJenHouse* that has beautiful dresses for the glamour girl you want to be on that special night, with prices that won’t blow your parent’s bank account – especially if you catch one of the great sales! Here are some of my faves:


This keyhole, scoop neck chiffon dress is a stunner. I love the spring-like color of yellow. You’ll be the one standing out on the dance floor!


The unusual cut of this purple gown will set you apart from the pack. Wear your hair in an updo to show off the beading bling along the back straps.


This silver, one-shoulder dress with cutouts says star power all over it. No doubt you will catch the light when you walk in the room.


A lesson in sophisticated elegance,  you can’t go wrong in this fitted strapless dress with beautiful brocade ruffles.


Something about prom makes you want to look like a goddess and this white chiffon number has just enough golden detail and subtle gathering at the top to make you look just that!


Lots of prom dresses will come in the classic strapless silhouette but you’ll be a downright doll with the gorgeous, flowing layered ruffles on this organza dress.

Be sure to note that most of the dresses pictured here come in a variety of colors, so if you like the cut, find the color that suits you best!

Makes me almost wish I could go back to high school just to go to the prom!

Sparkle and shine,

Unique Vintage: Retro Recreations and A Special Offer on Swimsuits

While cruising around online, I came across a  purse I couldn’t stop thinking about – it looked like a cadillac! Made with glittery vinyl like the kind they used on klassic kar upholstery, with a company logo emblem that looked like a hood ornament, it was the kind of purse that makes even the most boring outfit look cool – that’s not even mentioning the leopard print lining!

I found it in real life when I popped into Unique Vintage in Burbank. I must have driven past that store a million times and I finally went in. They had a great mix of vintage recreation clothing from brands such as Bernie Dexter, Heartbreaker and Lucky 13, shoes, and a whole men’s department, including some amazing Ace Cafe Rocker Jackets I was tempted to pick up for my boyfriend.

But I was truly dazzled by the Lux de Ville purses. They come in glittery vinyl and an array of colors and style. I opted for a classic black and white sparkle Motor Tote. I LOVE this purse! It’s big enough to put all my cameras in (I usually carry two or three) and my can’t-leave-the-house without makeup.

It was prom season when I was there and the gowns section was packed with giggling girls trying things on. They have quite an assortment of dressy dresses if you have a special event coming up. Another super cute rare find is the large selection of retro swimsuits – just in time for summer!

With that said, I have a special offer* just for Stiletto City readers – click this link for Retro Swimwear up to 40% off from Unique-Vintage.com!

Enjoy summer in style!
