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!

I'm 15 and a skinny person with a fat belly. On the other hand, my sister who is 14 has an athletic body. Does it make it weird?

Yep , agreed with other members. Just try to understand their situation, things get better just give them sometime. And you're thinking wrong, your parents even pay attention to you but they just don't show it. And doing things by your own isn't bad, even it's good habit. If you've any problem to do things of your own then you can tell your mom. I'm sure she'll help you. It'll get better! :)

Talk with your friends, ask them that what happened and why they're doing such weird things. I know it's quite annoying. Otherwise, you ignore them too. If you ignore them few days , they'll stop doing such idiotic things.

I think you should talk with a trusted adult or you can tell to your best friend's parents. If she bothers you again and too much then ignore her few days then she will stop this. I hope this'll work!
