My husband and I are going to a "Time Warp Prom" on the 23rd of this month. This will be the first time I have gone to a prom with someone I love. I want to look great! The only problem is, I'm not sure what to wear. I am 30 years old and have had two children. Needless to say, my figure isn't what it use to be. :-) I wear between a size 12-14. My body type is pear shaped (heavy thighs) and my arms are not toned. I am 5'6" on a good day, pretty fair-skinned and have dark blonde hair.
I am looking for something sexy, knee length and unique. I'm not quite sure what color to go with, although, I may just go with black. I have spent some time online looking for ideas. I've heard strapless and v-neck are flattering for my shape, yet strapless dresses scare me. I can see myself pulling at my dress all night. I've also read that empire waists are good, yet I don't want to look pregnant. I want to stay with A-line.
Does anyone have ANY ideas or any good online stores? My price range is under $100.
I have checked into these online stores: JCpenney, Chadwicks, Newport News, Bluefly and Overstock. These have good prices and good selection, but just not sure what style to go with.
I want to look mature, yet sexy! Anyone???
Thank you so much in advance for any ideas!!!
