2008 Prom Shoes and Accessories

Check out what's in style in the shoes and accessories department so that you can put the finishing touches on your prom dress!

Jewelry

Skip the silver and go for the gold! For necklaces, it's all about stars, charms engraved with your initials, and chains that can be worn long or looped around your neck a couple of times. As for bracelets, just pile on a bunch of gold bangles!

Purses

A clutch or wristlet is the perfect purse to take to the prom cuz it's small enough to keep the attention on your dress, yet big enough to hold all of your essential goodies, like your make-up and cell phone. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colors, but this year, forget the traditional blacks and opt for metallics or popsicle brights!

Shoes

Take inspiration from celebs like Blake Lively and the Olsen twins and try a pair of peep-toe booties on for size. With cutouts around the sides and heel of the shoe, they're sort of a cross between a sandal and a boot, and are one of the most daring styles of the season! Another new and fun trend to try are gladiator sandals, which come in everything from flats to heels with fringe, or keep it classic in a pair of peep-toe pumps. And if you're lookin' for a shoe that's both fashionable and comfortable, then get a pair of flat sandals in a bright eye-popping color, or ones that are encrusted with stones or jewels. Be sure to polish those toes if you're going to wear sandals that reveal so much of your feet!

You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!

If you don't think that you'll be in a safe situation (for example, your parents try to kick you out, or hurt you physically or emotionally) than you should definitely wait to tell them. I think you'll know when the time is right. We can't tell you how they'll react, but I bet you can sort of figure it out from how they feel and act about these topics.  Remember, you are not obligated to tell anybody at all. It's personal. Wait until you're for sure ready to tell them. And when you do, tell them the way in which it's easiest. Get your point across, offer resources, reassurance, and give them time.

Hey guys, so I do kinda have a personal issue, but I need to tell my family about it. Truth is, I'm not even sure how they'll even react. Very few of my friends know, only the ones I trust anyway... I'm gay. Or at least bisexual. I kinda had a thing for girls, but that was a long time ago. I think I'm fully gay. I have a very supportive boyfriend, who loves me with all his heart. But that's not what it's about; it's actually coming out to my family, whom I know some of them are quite homophobic. Homophobia runs in my family. Sorta...  It makes my stomach turn when I think about it. I sometimes look into the mirror, look at myself and think if my conscience suddenly made me decide I was gay, or if I was born with it. Science tells us that we are born that way, due to lack of man chemicals entering a boys brain when in development. I feel like I've chosen it (even though I know deep inside I haven't) to be gay, probably because of my family almost forcing me into getting a girlfriend and such. I come from a Catholic family, to make things even worse. I'm like the only practising person in my family, but somehow I feel that they'll use my Faith against me if I come out.  So, should I just wait until I'm older? How do I know when the time is right? How will they even react? How should I even say it?  Please help!
