Prom Dresses

prom-dresses-007With the ceremonies out of the way in a couple hours, tonight we’ll prom-dresses-003be watching the inauguration balls and catching glimpses of Obama style, the formal version. The gold coat and dress Michelle Obama is wearing today is gorgeous and I can’t wait to see her gown. But at least here in the South, shopping for spring prom dresses as already started as moms and daughters hit the stores on these cold and dreary winter days — sharing dressing-room space with June brides and bridesmaids. With two dress-up-loving daughters, I’ve had many seasons of formal shopping — some more successful than other. My advice? Wear comfortable clothes, have water and aspirin with you and bring plenty of Kleenex. If this store window in downtown Florence, Alabama, in any indication, simple and elegant gowns in jewel tones are going to be popular this year — I love how the colors glowed in the night lighting. It’ll be interesting to see if any inaugural trends show up at prom. Stay tuned!

  1. I thought Mrs. Obama and her daughters looked wonderful!! Also, I loved all the colorful scarves on EVERYONE… above all, it put a tear in my eye to see the happiness and hope in the eyes of the crowds…. what a fantastic day! xo

  2. I agree the dresses in the window look beautiful. I think the only thing I did today was make breakfast and shower! I have been clued to the TV. I just now got on blogging for tonite to watch more. Yes the first family looked very fashionable!

  3. My 9-year-old daughter (who is much too young for the prom) likes the blue dress at the far left. The dress I wore to senior prom was hot pink and not nearly as stylish as the ones in these pictures! Brings back nice memories though, so thanks!

  4. I wanted to know… where exactly is this store at ? Can someone give me the exact address? Please & Thank you 🙂

  5. It’s on Court Street in downtown Florence, across from Rosie’s. But it’s not “Kennedy’s” anymore, although it still has prom and bridal dresses and formals.
