It's that time of year where teenage girls flock to the most expensive boutique in their city to buy that extravagant mediocre looking $500 dress for their Senior High School Prom.
I had the fortunate opportunity to attend two proms. When I was in Grade 11 I attended my then-boyfriend's prom and my Senior Prom which was two years ago and I'm not going to brag or anything but I was the best dressed there (I'm sure every girl there would beg to differ saying they were best dressed .... but really I was).
I bought both my dresses online from a shop called Conie Fox. YOU BOUGHT YOUR PROM DRESS ONLINE ARE YOU INSANE?! I actually had very few issues with the dresses that I bought online. For one they were SUPER inexpensive compared to the $500 semi-nice looking dresses a lot of the girls wore and I didn't need to get any alterations done. Shopping online isn't hard as long as you read the proper measurements when ordering.
Dress: Conie Fox (I just checked the updated price.. I bought this for $80 and they raised their price to $364... I lucked out)
THROWBACK this is in 2010 at my then-boyfriend's prom when I had brown hair (I'm never doing that again) but at least my boobs looked big to distract you from my brown hair. ~Blondes have more fun~. Anyways I love the colours to this dress and the gold sequins created a shape similar to a butterfly which was stunning. The only issue I had with this dress were the boobs I had some nip slips so we had to pin it but that's only because I was too cheap to get it altered. Overall, stunning dress that I got for only $80 and my jaw dropped when I saw the raised price!
Dress: Conie Fox (I bought this for around $120 and the price is now $168)
The following year was my senior prom and I brought back the blonde. I loved this dress, I felt like the most beautiful girl in the room in this dress. When shopping online the colour looked a little more beige than grey but when I received it it didn't matter, it was beautiful. I honestly thought I had the best dress at prom and I know for a fact I spent the least amount on a dress too.
If you are worried about shopping for prom dresses online. DON'T BE. If you are worried that it may be too small just order a size bigger and you can always get it altered.

Long Formal Dress
Personally I prefer to wear a long formal dress for prom because unless you are going to walk the red carpet you rarely get to wear one!
