The Uniqueness of Vintage Prom Dresses
The prom is always on your mind as the end of the school year is fast approaching and girls of course are thinking about the dress they want to wear. If you happen to live in a small town or even a large town, you may still end up wearing the same dress as another girl at the prom. This would of course be the end of the world, or at least a huge embarrassment. The answer is vintage prom dresses. A vintage prom dress will be just as good as a designer gown with all the expense.
Some people may not even consider exactly what vintage means and may only think that vintage is the 80's. The real truth is that vintage clothing can go as far back as the 1920's with the flapper style and can include the hippie days and of course the 80's. The expense can be less expensive or could even be very expensive according to the rarity of the dresses available during that year. You may be able to see if mom has any of her dresses from the 80's or grandmother if you want the 60's or 70's of course, this will depend upon their ages. This way you can get the dress you desire without a huge expense and maybe only have to do a few alterations to have the perfect fit.
The best way to begin your search if you cannot find one in the family is to visit vintage clothing stores, thrift stores, consignment shops, and even use the internet to find online stores that sell vintage clothing. How cool would it be if you and your date arrived dressed in the same era of clothing? Now, that would certainly turn some heads.
If all else fails, you can visit a seamstress, as long as you know what you want. She will not be able to read your mind. Take a photograph of the dress you desire and she may be able to create something as close to the look as possible. Just make sure this is what you want, as you will be paying a hefty price to have your dress created.
Remember this is your prom and finding vintage prom dresses to make a statement will surely make you feel special and will give you a dress that no one else will be wearing. Who knows you may just have all the eyes on you and that would make the night even more memorable.
