Solving the Prom Puzzle

By this point, you've probably already picked your prom dress.  You've scoured the stores, tried on dozens of dresses and after agonizing over short vs. long and black vs. colour, you've finally found The One.  Come to think of it, dress shopping is a lot like dating, n'est-ce pas?  After all that work, wouldn't it be a shame to let bad accessorizing ruin a perfectly gorgeous gown?  Take a look at some of my ideas for prom night perfection.  Whether you're a good girl gone bad or a classic sophisticate, make sure to choose accessories that you love and feel totally comfortable wearing.  After all, wouldn't you rather spend the night partying with your friends than limping around in too-high heels?  Think outside the box when it comes to toppers - sure, pashminas are safe but why not try a little biker bomber over a floor-length frock or a slouchy blazer over a fitted black dress?  And as for shoes, mix it up by pairing a simple LBD with electric blue pumps or a gold gown with a hot pink pair of stilettos.  No matter what, have fun with your look (this is prom, not your wedding) and above all else, have a sweet, unforgettable night!
