Things I regret about my prom outfit include: fake nails, cheap mall jewelry and suspicious looking amounts of self-tanner. What I do not regret is my choice of a dress. Strapless, floor-length grey silk with silver beading and black tulle that mimicked the night sky, it was absolutely perfect. Unless youâ€™re a celeb, there are precious few occasions besides your prom that require formal dress, so choose wisely, because in the future youâ€™re going to have about a million photos of yourself to deal with. If youâ€™re a sortakindagrownup like me, this time of year can cause you to reminisce about prom dresses long past and make you wish for a red-carpet invite to satisfy your craving for formal wear. My solution? Virtual window-shopping courtesy of Stylesightâ€™s extensive collection of Store Windows from around the world.
