BACK. & prom rules!

We're back...and it’s been exactly 8 months!!!! It's a little worrying that this blog might be left to rust in cyberspace. Sorry for the long hiatus - school's been really busy, but our major A levels are going to end pretty soon in about a week's time. I've to admit that my sister and I have had futile attempts to shun the virtual world during this long study break. I still had to treat myself to the occasional thefashionspot read or Seventeen magazines! Apart from returning to Mode.ulation we are really hyped up about our upcoming PROM at a 5star hotel in the heart of the city and we’ve been conceiving our dream dress between cramming biology notes. We pretty much settled on a few rules on our shopping plan:

  1. No black. As much as everyone loves to don an LBD, we agreed that black’s not a great idea for us. Classy and elegant, this shade (I wouldn’t consider it a colour!) is a little too mundane for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The only way to stand out from a sea of black is to go for colour – jewel, pastel or even neon, anything goes. However, I do love a cute LBD paired with coloured tights a la Erin Fetherston in fall 08.

2. Maxi. It will be important to find a tricky balance between the price factor for more fabric and the elegance of wearing a floor-sweeping red carpet worthy dress. No matter what, we will keep our eyes peeled for bargain steals. (Below: Erin Fetherston resort 11)

3. Accessories. Considering the rather limited array of dresses one can find on this little red dot, sticking by the rule of accessorizing will keep it safe. There will definitely be a slightest chance that someone may wear the same dress as you, but accessories will help to make the dress unique.
