Blogger Prom-over: The Clothes Horse

Picking out a dress for prom is no easy feat, so we gave our favourite bloggers the chance to do it all again, starting with pixie-cropped Rebecca of The Clothes Horse. Read on to find out how this Pennsyvanian pretty styled her new Madam Popoff number...

"We moved my senior year of high school and I went from the public school system to a private all girls school (culture shock). When prom rolled around I hadn’t met any boys so faced with the gruesome option of a blind date I chose to go stag. My prom dress was a simple black halter bought at the mall—the first dress I can even remember trying on after browsing for a short time with my sister. It was priced under $100 and we used gift cards so I ended up paying nothing out of pocket."

"If I went back or had prom again I’d still go stag, I might dance more, but the biggest change would be my dress. I was a shy kid in high school and my style reflected that. I’m still shy, but I’m much more comfortable in my own skin and I’d love to have worn something that made me feel special and unique. I’d definitely choose a vintage dress and something as dramatic as this one would have been perfect. In high school I was still figuring out how I wanted to present myself and simple black suited my shy personality. I'm still shy, but much more confident in my own skin so it would be fantastic to have an excuse to dress up and still show my personality...well a better excuse than snapping a few photographs and not having a floor to dance on!"

We love how Rebecca styled her one-off Madam Popoff dress with a handmade crown. How would you dress for prom if you had the chance to do it again? Take a look at our edit of unique prom dresses, and keep your eyes peeled for more blogger prom-overs, coming soon!
