PROM SEASON IS NOW
By KristySamone — May 17, 2012
I have fond prom memories…of course, the dress was a mini with lace and sequins. I would squeeze into it now if I could:)
The prom, short for promenade (or introduction of parading guests at a party) started as coed banquets that American universities put on during the 19th century. When folks had post-war money in the 50’s, this event became a fancier tradition held at country clubs and hotels. The dress code would instruct teens to “Wear Your Sunday Best.” Speaking of the best, 2012’s prom trend report is a mixed bag of one-shoulder, strapless, hi-lo, prints, bright colors and “bling” looks. It’s reflective of the different eras in style now.
Recent “promers” have shared with me their looks for this year. Both up and coming fashionistas are teens after my own heart: focused and well-styled. Aaliyah wears a strapless sassy platinum mini by “Teeze Me” (Macy’s) and Dakota’s stunning print gown is by http://www.xciteprom.com/.

I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
