Prom Season is Upon Us!

Do you remember prom?
As a high schooler, I went to a handful of proms, both my own and as the date of a friend. Prom is the mystical magical life experience that has been built up through movies, television, advertising and even literature. It's kind of the pinnacle of one's teenage years. The night is meant to be epic, and I remember spending many days agonizing over the hair style, my date, the flowers, the shoes and, most of all, the dress.
The youth of today are lucky that there is such an amazing online presence for shopping. In "my day," had to flip through catalogs and, gasp, visit the brick-and-mortar store. Now, eager prom shoppers can peruse dresses on sites like JenJenHouse, which has a gorgeous selection of wares to pick from!
Can we agree that dresses are way cooler today, by the way?
Like, I chose what was the equivalent of a ball gown for my senior prom from a really posh shop at my local mall. I wish I'd seen this a decade ago (and that it had been in style) because it's so refined!
Doesn't she look like she's about to accept an Academy Award?!
As you look through dresses, JenJenHouse even gives you recommended styles to help your search stay easy and fun (http://www.jenjenhouse.com/Prom-Dresses-c18/recommend/). I may not be going to a prom ever again, but I do attend weddings and have even been invited to some gala-esque events, so I am definitely going to check out JenJenHouse next time I need a new fancy frock!
I know that in a day in the not-so-distant future, I will be agonizing with my two daughters over colors, fabrics and styles as they approach their Big Prom Night. I can't imagine how the prom dress search will change by the time my girls hit high school, but I can't wait to get girly over chiffon!
