I am not going to prom this year, but since it is coming closer, I thought it would be a fun idea to show you what I would want to wear to prom. I found this incredible dress at J. Crew. The funny thing is that before I had seen this dress, I had designed one that I wanted. (It looked almost exactly like this one!) And then I found this;
I wanted a floor length dress. Check. Either cream or white. Check. I wanted it to also have a simple Grecian look to it. Check. Now the dress I had envisioned was not a wedding dress, but this one is. I LOVE this dress, but I think I would want a fancier dress for my wedding. I think this one could easily pass for prom.

I would love to have my hair done something like this;
Or in an elegant bun with a simple small flower
(This is the only one I could find, the flower would need to be whiter and smaller, so that it would not take away from the ruffle/flowers on the dress.)

Either gold filigree earrings, or small pearls.
If the shoes were a little whiter (the rose) or the dress was a little creamier colored, I would say possibly these shoes. I think heels would probably be over the top. Simple flats would be good to. If these shoes were worn, I would not do the flower in the hair. That would be over doing it. (Wait, did I just say more flowers would be over doing it?!? Well they would, but I didn't think I would ever say that! ;)

I would also add a small clutch. I think that that would be plenty, so as it would not drown out the simplicity of the dress.

Feel free to leave me a comment telling about your prom experiences, and what you wore! It would also be fun to see some pictures!

I love those dresses, I think the most important thing about selecting a prom dress is NOT breaking the back. I only spend $25 on mine and loved it.

I saw that dress on J.Crew - I sometimes stalk the wedding section of the website even though I still have a few more years- and fell in love with it! I agree with you though, it would be a great prom dress and maybe not my top choice for a wedding dress. Great accessories you picked too! Love your blog!
