I've gotten a lot of questions on my dress from prom after posting a photo on Instagram (@dariasmithyt) the other day, so I thought I would do a recap of prom photos. Last weekend, I went to prom with my best friend, Taylor, who lives in Alabama. She used to live a few streets down from me and we've grown up together.
I've had this maxi dress for a while from Lilly Pulitzer, and it was fancy enough for prom. I believe it's only a few years old.. got it from one of the semi-annual sales on the Lilly site after falling in love with it in-store. I really didn't want a dress I was only going to wear once or that someone else was going to have. The name of the dress is the "Franconia Maxi Dress in Paisley Chiffon Jacquard" if you're looking to find it on Poshmark or eBay.
I generally like to do my own thing and be different from everyone else.. so naturally I did not want a Sherri Hill dress someone else would also be sporting for prom. To find a unique dress, I would get creative with searching online and not go to a prom shop which sells the same dress to a lot of people. I will include some different dresses at the end of this post that you could wear for your prom.
Since there was a lot going on with my dress, I paired it with my favorite earrings from Kendra Scott and left it at that. My heels are wedges from Kate Spade, a few seasons old. Personally, I can not work heels and I find wedges to be much comfier for prom.
