    Zesty yellow… how do you react?  I see sunshine and goodness. Others see strength and dominance. Yellow is the color of new ideas, action and agility. For some, it’s cheerful and happy. For others, it’s a overwhelming and intense. Whether lemon or butter, there’s a yellow for everyone (come to think of it, lemony butter is a fabulous combo!). Whether in accessories or dresses, yellow is once again a fashion focus. PromGirl stocks a range of casual and formal dresses in many shades of yellow. Here’s my

    My hope for the future, not just in the music industry, but in every young girl I meet is that they all realize their worth and ask for it. –Taylor Swift

    Her in Op-Ed article for the Wall Street Journal, Taylor Swift noted the changes she’s experienced in business, and predicted future trends. While her focus was on the music industry, it can apply to all of us, in all of our passions. Whether we love fashion, genetics, animals, helping people, writing code or cracking algorithms, our generation will need to rethink things, stay on our toes and be aware that our personal brand is our biggest asset. We should value the relationships we build and make sure we are valued.

    How do you dress for that? I suppose just like your resume and your reputation, bit by bit.

    As Taylor stated in her editorial:

    The only real risk is being too afraid to take a risk at all.

    Here’s to embracing the unknown!

    I like soccer, or football as most of the world calls the sport. Not so much that I’ve watched every game, but since the Round of 16 began, it’s been a priority along with my favorite summer deeds. On Sunday, July 14, 2014, the final match between Argentina and Germany is going to be fantastic.

    Watching the game with friends on a summer Sunday afternoon will be a blast. This I know. My trouble is

    Which dress to wear to watch the World Cup Final?
    Help me choose, would you?

    Buy PromGirl rompers for World Cup Final games

    Gold chevron romper

    This yellow chevron print romper is a fun choice for match day. I can channel my inner referee with this gold print dress. The belt is cute and the neck gathers are adjustable and tie in the back, creating a keyhole. Top it off, this romper costs under $50.
    Shop black, white, red striped casual dresses from PromGirl

    Black, white and red striped casual dress

    German fans tend to wear two colors from their flag and pull the third in with wacky fan gear. If I decide to root for Germany, what about this black, red and white striped dress? It’s a casual knit dress with a square neckline echoed back and front. I could easily wear it to a Sunday match get together or to an internship gig. Of course, the gold would have to come with the zany accessory, but I could swing that.
    Shop blue chevron summer dresses from PromGirl

    Blue chevron cap sleeve dress

    Argentina fans are often photographed wearing blue and white tank tops or fan jerseys. If I root for Argentina, you won’t see me wearing that. But I could play on the blue with this chevron print dress. Chevrons are traditionally associated with heraldry, so I could be ever so subtle in my sky blue cap sleeve dress.
    Shop white sheer panel side cut out sundresses from PromGirl

    White open back dress with sheer side cut outs

    I haven’t decided my favorite team… I just want an exciting match well played. Maybe a white sundress is the best bet. White signifies peace, the dove… I’d be establishing my neutrality! This cute cap sleeve dress has an open back and sheer panels covering the side cut outs. Very on trend, I think I’d wear this dress a lot this summer.

    Do you see my dilemma? Do you have a favorite? Can’t wait for the big match on Sunday!
