As the winter months of 09' came to a peak, bringing us into the crisp beginning of 2010, we are once again reminded that with the warm months ahead also comes the proverbial prom season. We all know that with each week comes a new trend for try-outs. The ever-changing staples of fashion can make prom preparation a tricky task. If you are like me (an up-to-the-minute diva) then you know that being up-to-date on the latest trends can make purposeful procrastination a perfect option in the planning of such events as the prom.
In order to stay on-top of things you cannot put an 'ok' on any rental, or purchase, until you have a clear idea of the exact form in which you plan to present. The easiest way to be pre-pared is to focus on your extras first. If you have a general color in mind already then use this as your focus-palette. By bringing your first attention to the accessories you will have certain flexibility in moving onto your attire. With the focus of recent style having a certain built-in flexibility you can be assured that no matter what the focal pieces of your outfit are you will have the luxury of interchanging your attire ideas to fit ever-changing trends.
If you are dead-set on sporting an amazing pair of metallic Jimmy Choo's, with a few dazzling accent pieces, then make these your focal-point. By setting your focal-point on a few key pieces then you make the center piece (your dress) easier to pin-point when the time comes to verify your purchase. Since metallic's, patterns, prints, and boldly tailored items can fit with 'all-of-the-above' in today's accepting trends you will have no problems when it comes down to picking out your favorite dress. The only issues that could cause a major dent in your prom planning would arise from unplanned procrastination practices. By lazily strumming along you can miss out on the pre-prom availability. It is much easier to work on the early-bird schedule. If you do your homework, designate the average pricing, and find the permanent locale of your preferred outfit then you have the upper hand already. Know your latest possible purchase date in advance; this will not only help you to beat the mad-rush for the best styles but it will also allow you to take advantage of any specials that the boutiques may offer to the pre-planners. Always have a seamstress on speed-dial, not only for major occasions, but for the everyday alterations that can one day save you hundreds.
