2008 Prom Dresses

Floral Dresses

Florals are the prettiest look of the year. Instead of getting a dress with an allover floral print, which is way too casual for prom, try something that has floral motifs, like accents or embroideries along the neckline and hemline. Or, swathe yourself in this tiered halter dress that we've picked out, which evokes images of blossoming petals and is the perfect color choice for the season. Be sure to keep your accessories low-key if you plan on wearing a bold dress like this one.

Ombre Dresses

Another key look this season is ombre, which is a unique dip-dye pattern. Ombre is a French term meaning "shaded" and is an old European technique that creates a graduated color effect from light to dark by holding sections of the garment in one color of dye for longer periods of time. The result is a fresh and feminine look for prom!

Colorblocked Dresses

If you're not sure about what color dress you want to wear on prom night, then colorblocking may be the way for you to go. Colorblocking is the technique of using big blocks of different colors. It's great for those of ya who aren't into prints and patterns, but want to wear something more dramatic than a solid-colored gown.

Studded Dresses

If you're looking for something a little more edgy, check out this black dress - with sparklin' rhinestones and a racerback design, it's not your ordinary LBD! Pair it with your favorite fitted leather jacket and some peep-toe booties and you've got yourself a rockin' look for prom!

Im sorry that you has such friends that seems to enjoy entertaining themselves by being mean to you.  They is just people that you hangs out with cos you says you hasnt anyone else to hang out with.... not friends.  I doesnt think you should think of them as friends either and then its gonna be easier to move on. Is there any way you can hang out with other people by eg [what other posters said] taking up the new activities? And you has friends on KW :) :D

If they call you fat and stupid, they are not your friends. Your so called 'friends' are just using you. You need to find your truest friends. Clearly, they are not your truest friends.

Society will not be soft to you always, just because YOU are soft. You must have a strong background. Also they are not your friends. You know what they are doing to you?They are packing a gift box looking all attractive (friendship) and filled with hurt ...like Pandora's box.  Just move on. Be alone n discover more of the world. Or just make new friends.I was in a state like you some months back. Now I moved on n I have 3 best friends. That time I thought too that they r my only friends. You will not find the world until you set out for the world.

They are not your friends, really. You should leave them and move on. This might sound difficult, but being alone is better than being with an untrue friend. You'll make better friends soon, anyway. Plus, WE are here for you! :D
