Prom shoes
You may have found the perfect prom dress, the perfect jewelry and an awesome hairstyle, but it's not going to work right unless you have formal shoes that compliment the entire package. Coloriffics has a pretty strong reputation as a company that provides versatile shoes for many types of occasions, including prom and weddings. The company offers the latest styles of high heels, pumps, formal sandals, peep toe shoes, platform shoes, t-straps and more. Colors include gold, silver, black and white, and more. You'll also find plenty of embellishments such as bows, studs and rhinestones.

At the time of our visit to the site, we did not see an online ordering system, rather, the site has a button that when clicked, informs you "where to buy." If you're just starting your search for the right pair of shoes, this is a good first stop.

Fashion Colors for Spring 2011 by Pantone

Fashion colors, spring 2011
The folks at Pantone have released their new palette of colors for women's clothing, chosen by New York designers for spring 2011. The mostly soft and bright collection of colors includes some creative monikers: a milky yellow that's called "Beeswax," a light brown that's labeled "Russet," and a peppy pink that's named "Honeysuckle." A trip to the Pantone home page reveals that Honeysuckle is "The 2011 Color of the Year," as it "...lifts spirits and imparts confidence to meet life's ongoing challenges." No doubt we'll be seeing many honeysuckle pink shirts, dresses, scarfs and other accessories in the coming months.

Modest Prom Dresses from Twirl Prom

Modest prom dresses
If you want your prom dress to make a bold fashion statement and be modest at the same time, then Twirl Prom may have the dress for you. The company offers a variety of bright and colorful gown designs, all of which cover the shoulders, chest and back. You'll find the popular mermaid-style dresses, gathered skirts, ball gowns and rhinestones that you would expect to find with other labels; these dresses simply have a bit more material. The prices of these dresses are higher than the products of some of the discount prom labels that we've featured: the lowest price we saw was for a chiffon A-line, "understated with a soft square neckline, side wrap detailed with a beading and tulip sleeves." At the time of our visit, that dress--available in hot pink, lavender and apple--was $149. Some of the dresses are very eye-catching. This website is worth a visit when you're considering dresses for formal events.

When shopping for prom dresses online, we recommend that you search for reviews, and that you order your item well in advance of your event so that you have plenty of time to return or exchange your item if it doesn't meet your expectations. This company seems to have some nice products at great prices, but we were a bit wary about the fact that we couldn't find a physical address for the company on the website.

It's an adjustable clip-on camisole that attaches to your bra, transforming revealing tops into "office appropriate" attire. The clip-on camis come in a variety of colors, including white, ivory, brown, black and navy. They also feature "elegant lace trim." For a bolder look, the company also offers turquoise camis, and animal print camis, including a leopard print, a zebra print, and a cheetah print.

The price posted on the website at the time of our visit seemed quite reasonable (6 for $10. + about $7. s&h).
