It’s that wonderful time of the year again, prom season. From February to late June, high school girls are going crazy over making sure their junior or senior prom is perfect in every single way. They will spend weeks or months making sure they have the perfect dress, the best hair do, the prettiest makeup and of course the best looking date. I guess you could say it is the second most stressful day of a young girls life, first being their wedding day. They need to make sure everything is perfect, and I have to say, it is extremely stressful to plan a night together with all your friends. Who’s house are pictures going to be done at? Are you going to rent a limo bus? Where do you go after prom? And being typical teenagers, plans are always changing from one minute to the next.
Before I began working as the Marketing Assistant for TT New York, I was a sales associate at one of their locations and by far all of the staff’s favorite time of the year was prom season. I can honestly say that if I didn’t have TT New York during both my proms, I probably would have thrown a fit and decided not to go due to the stress. Shopping there made everything so simple for me, I knew what was the “it” look for the year because TT is always up to date on the latest trends, and I loved the fact no one could have the same dress as me because of the event tracking. For junior prom I bought two prom dresses, yes two. The first one was more simple and I loved it until we got a brand new shipment in with a cut out leopard printed dress in it, and it was love at first sight, so yes I bought that leopard dress the day before prom as well as all of my jewelry. But I couldn’t help myself, looking at all those gorgeous dresses week after week, I just needed that dress, and it is still hanging in my closet because it was so beautiful. Senior year I was way more prepared and made sure to buy my dress with time to spare. The fact I could purchase my dress and get it altered at right at TT New York saved me a big headache. I didn’t have to go out searching for a tailor because each store had one seamstress on site every day. I could easily match up my dress to shoes and jewelry because TT offers such a wide variety of necklaces, earrings and bracelets, it is truly a one stop shop.
When I went to prom, most girls wore full length gowns that were patterned and beaded, but over the past few years there has been a huge demand for short prom dresses. Now we carry everything from short poofy prom dresses, to tight fitted ones with beautiful open backs. Walking into TT New York you will see new styles that you didn’t know existed. I remember when we got a shipment of high-low dresses and all I could think about was how creative and gorgeous they were, and boy did they sell out quickly. With new changes to dresses there will always be styles that remain the same. Princess ball gowns, mermaid cuts, and the popular empire waisted gown are some of the constant favorites throughout the years. Every year brings some sort of change from either the material or the design, but no matter what there will always be the perfect dress out there for every girl.
The best thing about high school, besides graduation, is getting to spend a night dressed up with all of your friends where you sing and dance all night long. It is the last major event you will have with your friends before everyone goes off to college and begins their future, so enjoy it to the fullest!
