My daughter, The Teen, formerly uninterested in what she wears, has suddenly declared that she likes “looking” at fashion. While shopping may be a challenge, she enjoys visiting different sites for clothes and is getting excited about her version of the prom, the eighth grade dance. We visited DressFirst.com and took a look at some styles that we both could agree on.

While we do have some time before we have to settle on a dress for prom, we did get great ideas for future outfits.


We both loved the A-Line/Princess V-neck Ankle-Length Chiffon Prom Dress With Ruffle Beading. I felt that it would be flattering and appropriate for her age. The Teen felt that she would achieve that look of maturity that she is so anxious to have.


I was a fan of the Sheath One-Shoulder Watteau Train Chiffon Charmeuse Prom Dress With Ruffle Beading. The grape color really popped for me; I think it’s such stylish look! I love the ruffle beading and the train added an extra bit of flair. My daughter was not a fan adding that the scarf took away from the dress.


We both agreed that out favorite was A-Line/Princess Sweetheart Asymmetrical Chiffon Prom Dress With Ruffle. It’s a gorgeous dress that offers sophistication without being too mature.

    I distinctly remember that moment during my pre-teen years when I all of a sudden cared about what I wore, so I can totally identify with where “The Teen” is right now. 🙂 I love that cobalt dress so much; you are so right that it is age-appropriate but also glamorous!

  2. Not sure I would want an 8th grader to wear a one shoulder job but the dresses are all very nice–are they really going to get that dressed up for an 8th grade prom?-Times have sure changed-the senior prom was the only one when I went to school!

  3. Terry says:

    I have 2 Granddaughters who love to get dressed up. I was looking at some of their dresses online and there sure are some pretty ones.

  4. I love to get all dressed up, but I rarely have any reason to sadly. That purple dress is gorgeous.
