    March 31 is #NationalPromDay, and PromGirl is celebrating to raise funds for Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD). Life is full of decisions that aren’t always easy. SADD helps build skills to make positive choices. You can donate directly to SADD or buy your prom dress from PromGirl on March 31, 2016 and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to SADD.

    Sherri Hill is joining in this effort, joining a Twitter Party  on March 31 from 6 to 7 EST. Since launching her formal wear brand in 2008, Sherri has led prom trends and red carpet looks for a young, fashion forward, discerning market.

    Here are a few of my favorite Sherri Hill gowns for 2016:

    Sherri Hill’s support is so welcome on National Prom Day. That’s why PromGirl is encouraging past and current prom goers to post their prom photos with #NationalPromDay. We aren’t alone in these tough decisions. During prom season, let’s hope the tough choices are choosing the best dress. When things get more complex, let’s support SADD with their efforts to make positive choices.

    We click to buy everything from music to make up.  Buying your prom gown is different in two ways:

    • the cost is greater than your typical online purchase, and
    • prom is a fixed date… you need the perfect dress that fits for a very specific night.

    How do you know you’re shopping with a great online vendor?

    4 Online Shopping Tips for Prom 2016

          1. Measure thyself:  Get out your swim suit and have a friend measure you. Not sure what’s needed to choose the correct size? Then watch this video from PromGirl.
          2. Measure the quality of the online vendor: What is their online reputation? A quick check at the bottom of the PromGirl web site reveals a bevy of certifications.

    Certifications at the bottom of the PromGirl website

        1. Identify the company’s return policy: Will you get store credit or a refund? Are there restocking fees? Who pays for postage on returns? If you can’t find the answer to these questions easily on the web site, you shouldn’t buy your prom dress with that business.
        2. Identify shipping time: Before paying for your perfect prom dress, you should understand the expected ship date and delivery time. Some vendors do not keep their online listings in stock; the prom dresses are drop shipped from the manufacturer when you place your order. Even if you’re an early bird shopper, you may need time to alter your prom gown.

    Understanding and trusting the online prom dress vendor is key to a happy purchase. PromGirl has 16 years of online experience in the prom gown business and prides itself on being the online prom dress superstore! With an enormous selection and dedication to customer service, you can shop safely at PromGirl.

    The sleek silhouette of the mermaid dress proves to be a popular prom choice for 2015. With this type of long gown, you get a form fitting, sexy look with a full lower skirt. All panache, yet you can move effortlessly from dinner to promenade to dance floor. But don’t forget the details, Cinderella. Where’s your purse? Prom is not the dress alone. You’ll need a clutch or purse to carry your cell phone, an ID, lipstick, a bit of cash (in case the carriage turns into a pumpkin)….

    PromGirl Terani beaded mermaid prom dress

    PromGirl black strapless lace mermaid prom gown

    Black lace mermaid prom dress

    PromGirl LaFemme ruched mermaid prom dress

    La Femme azur blue ruched mermaid gown

    Let’s suppose a strapless mermaid gown from Terani caught your eye.

    Or what about a lace mermaid dress with a tulle skirt?

    Then there’s the LaFemme ruched mermaid gown. It’s available not only in gorgeous azure blue but other scrumptious colors.

    You cannot deny that these are gorgeous dresses for prom 2015. Each approaches the mermaid style differently. Could one clutch (I think any strapless gown calls for a clutch or wristie, but that’s my bias) work for all three dresses?

    I propose this beautiful beaded clutch.

    beaded shell clutch

    It pays homage to the mermaid style and adds a touch of Rafael’s Venus to your look (yes, you are a goddess!). In my book, the shell shape, the tiny seed beads and the vintage closure makes this clutch the purse perfect for  all kinds of party dresses.

    Just look at some of the most popular prom dresses this season. Do you agree that this is a good fit?

    Who says you have to spend a mint in order to look marvelous? If your prom dress budget tops off at $150, never fear. I cruised around the great selection of budget friendly prom dresses and came up with today’s list:

    5 Prom Dresses for under $150

    budget beaded sheer prom dress

    Beaded sheer panels and chiffon prom dress for under $150

    Capture this season’s trends and stay in budget with a beaded sheer panel long dress. Gently gathered chiffon panels create a fabulous feminine silhouette that is worry free from the first snapchat post until the last dance. Beaded sheer panels create sparkling shoulder straps, surround the deep scoop back and wrap under the arm in a way that’s daring yet… shall I say demure? Great style, great looks and a great price.

    La Femme strapless prom dress under $150

    La Femme strapless sequin long gown

    La Femme’s strapless sequin dress dress has a fabulous price AND a totally glamourous look. Rich layers of gold sequins cover the entire floor length gown. Two sets of angled satin straps clip at the back for a body conscious fit that moves with you. The final effect on the back is simply sublime. La Femme offers this sequin gown in several colors and in plus sizes.

    PromGirl red prom dress under $150

    Criss cross and peek a boo make this red prom dress totally fab!

    Choosing red for your prom dress shows off your dynamic personality. Honey, if you’ve got it, don’t hide it. Choose this criss cross red prom gown. I love the full skirt, the flowing drape of the jersey knit fabric and that sheer panel peek a boo at the rib cage.

    budget sheer panel short prom gown

    Sheer Panel lace and tulle short prom dress

    Picturing yourself in a flirty short prom gown? This adorable lilac baby doll dress uses sheer panels, lace and a touch of sparkling beads in addition to those magnificent layers of tulle and shiny satin in the full skirt. I like this short prom dress style better than the typical baby doll cut. The angled waistband and bias cut fabric creates fullness in the skirt without bulk.  The look is more sophisticated and flattering on all figure types.

    sheer panel lace long prom dress under $150

    Stay in budget yet look sexy with this sheer panel and lace long prom gown

    Look like a million bucks without spending a $100 when you wear this sheer panel and lace gown. Lace motifs cover all of the right places! With a lace panel surrounding the center back zipper, the tension between sheer and coverage is well played. This great body conscious evening dress is available in white and black.

    The selection of  prom gowns for under $150 is a fantastic find. Never fear, budget empowered shoppers! Go find your favorite and grab it now!
