I have spent the last 2 weeks on my couch – first with an infected tooth from a root canal gone wrong (ouch) and then recovering from extraction of said tooth. The itch to shop is strong with this one. Knowing that Black Friday and Cyber Monday were on the horizon I spent a lot of my recovery time making shopping wish lists.

Shopbop has an awesome app and I spend way too much time on it “heart-ing” all my favorites from workout gear to cozy oversized sweaters, to adorable Kate Spade notebooks

So do yourself a favor and take advantage of this amazing Sale going on until Monday the 30th.

Don’t forget to comment on this post and show me all the awesome things you bought!

Happy Shopping!

be irresistible and unique, so she starts thinking over her look and style long before this

important event. Any detail is important here: hair style, makeup and apparel. The shops

vied in offering perfect high low prom dresses, and one simply can get confused of all this

variety. So, how to choose a perfect dress model that will profitably emphasize all body

advantages of the graduate and hide some insignificant flaws?

You should try dresses of various styles, in order to find the one that will be perfect for you.

If you got a slender body, you can take a look at the strict silhouette dresses. In case you

have a corpulent figure, you may consider the best vintage prom dresses Australia that will

When choosing an evening dress, one should stick not only to its fashion, but also to the

color. In this case, a theory of color types (seasons) will be of a great help for you. Knowing

the color types, you will be able to choose the proper dress color to match the skin, hair and


For example, prom dresses of bright colors will fit for the dark-haired girls with attractive

appearance. A silver-grey apparel will look the best on a bright-eyed brunette. The finery of

light colors (apricot, peach and butter tones) will effectively accentuate the beautiful dark


Light pink and light blue tones are the perfect match for the girls of the northern type of

appearance. Blondes with pale skin will look stunning in the prom dresses of tender colors,

like grey, silver, blue and, of course, white. Wonderful green eyes can be properly

accentuated with pistachio or emerald green dress. The latter also looks great on tanned


Be careful with some dress colors. For example, when choosing a white dress, take care of

not looking like a bride, while in a black one – not being too gloomy. The red color also has

different shades and not each of them will fit you. In case your skin has a tendency to blush,

you should be especially careful with red and pink tones, otherwise, you can merge with

your dress.

When choosing a gown, remember that prom is a magical evening and, depending on the

finery chosen, you may look like Cinderella or like a real queen. Thus, we advise you to

choose a dress that you will be able to wear many times after the prom, and that will not

only collect dust in your closet for the lifetime. So, good luck in choosing the perfect apparel

and have a fun graduation!
