As far as toddler girl clothing goes, I feel every parent should consider getting their daughter a dress or two.

One of the main reasons I feel this way is ddresses clothing ue to the fact that your child does indeed reflect you as a person in some way.

Finding Your Perfect Wedding Dress
By Christina Garcia

At last, the moment you've been waiting for! The man of your dreams has asked you to be his bride. The date has been set. The church has been booked. The planning is in full force. Now you must find the perfect that will make his jaw drop (and still make his mother smile), one that flatters your figure (but is appropriate in a church), something original and stylish (but doesn't scream I got married in 2010 twenty years from now). Wow! This could be harder than you thought.

You want your wedding dress to be a reflection of your personality and your sense of style. You want it to be uniquely you, because remember, that is who your fiance fell in love with! Look through bridal magazines or search online and mark dresses that immediately catch your eye. Perhaps you have already made an idea book over the years of your perfect wedding (you're not alone!). This is a great place to get inspiration. As you do your research, you will usually start to see a trend in the type of dresses that appeal to you.

Once you have an idea of styles that you like, it is best to next consider your budget. Determine a price range that you and whoever is buying the dress feels comfortable with. By doing this ahead of time, it makes it easier to narrow down dresses that are out of the question before you fall in love.

Now that you know your spending limit, it is best just to get out there and start trying dresses on. Bring a friend or family member whose opinion you trust (both taste and style). Try on different silhouettes- ball gowns, trumpets, mermaids, sheaths. Play with different necklines- sweetheart, strapless, portrait. Really get a feel for how they look on your body type. Are they flattering and tasteful? Are they pretty on you, or just on the hanger? Try a variety of colors from stark white to candlelight. What compliments your skin tone? What color coordinates best with the rest of your wedding color scheme?

Consider what the overall theme of your wedding is, whether traditional or modern, casual or black tie, indoors or out. This can help you know what style of wedding dress will be most appropriate for your special day. Think about how you have to move in the dress. Will you be dancing in it or will you change into another dress before the reception? This is very helpful to consider before you try to show your moves on the dance floor in a dress you can hardly walk in!

With so many things to consider, it can feel overwhelming. But breathe easy- you know that whatever dress you chose, as long as you're inside it, your groom will be happy.

Simple Wedding Dresses

Simple Wedding Dresses - Beautiful, Clean Lines
By Brenda Roman

simple wedding dresses
Simple wedding dresses have not only become very popular, but have become very stylish, as well. The choices of designs to wear, and where they are being worn has changed, too. They can be traditional or non-traditional.

A simple beach wedding dress is an obvious choice. If you are having a beach wedding, the sand tends to dirty the bottom and catch hold of the details on the hem of a wedding gown.

By choosing a simple and slightly raised hem line you won't need to worry about that. It will sway slightly above the sand and remain clean and dry. You could even go with a tea length dress to make sure it will stay clean.

Destination weddings have been growing yearly. They provide a perfect opportunity to have a gorgeous location with a gorgeous and simple wedding dress.

When you travel to your destination, you will need to pack your wedding gown. To minimize creasing, pack with tissue paper, pick a non creasing fabric and plan to have a service available at your destination for pressing your dress if needed. Most hotels, resorts or wedding planners will be happy to help you with this.

A Hawaiian wedding dress offers many choices, as well. The traditional dress is a holoku, a long sleeved, yoked, loose fitting, floor length dress without a waistline. This is still used in Hawaii often. It is a beautiful and traditional option.

There are also many updated versions for Hawaiian wedding gowns. Most are an easy to transport fabric, and carry a soft jacquard or printed pattern on them.

You will also see many sarong wedding dresses, especially at the beach. You can do a colorful and printed option or choose a beautiful hand painted silk sarong. These will often be left white for the ceremony and then painted or dyed to wear when you get home.

If cost is a factor, going with a simple design will decrease the price drastically. Using a less expensive fabric, purchasing on the internet and using less embellishments will all provide cost savings.simple wedding dresses

You can search through some of your favorite department stores. You already love the designs, and usually in the summer, you can find many wonderful, simple choices for a wedding. You may find, not only a bridal dress, but the bridesmaids, too.

Simple wedding dresses have become popular for a very good reason. They can be dressed up or down, they are generally less expensive, they tend to travel well, but most importantly they are incredibly beautiful. Look around, try some on and I think you will agree!

Red Carpet Dresses

Oscar Red Carpet Fashion Trends
By Kyra Demartini

red carpet dresses
rom the stunning stars walking the red carpet to the hilarious hosts, the incredible array of movies honored to the thoughtful acceptance speeches, the Academy Awards this year was a night to remember. With Kathryn Bigelow's historic night as the first female to win the award for Best Director and the array of talented women honored in the Best Actress category, the ladies truly made a statement. Their amazing performances, directorial prowess, and all over impact were felt the entire night. However, as they arrived on the red carpet all eyes were tuned to what designers and trends would be worn. From Sandra Bullock's gorgeous metallic dress to Gabourey Sidebe's deep blue gown, one could see that the stars went all out for the evening and several hot trends became apparent.

The metallic trend was huge this year, seen on stars such as Cameron Diaz, Sandra Bullock, and Kate Winslet. Metallic dresses look great on the red carpet, as they ensure one will stand out and not get lost in the crowd. Both the gold and silver metallic look is stunning, with some designers even starting to blend gold and silver tones together. When wearing a statement metallic dress, it is important to keep the rest of your look simple. By wearing little to no jewelry with a simple hairdo, an elegant look is created. These actors got it just right!

One Shoulderred carpet dresses
The one shoulder dress was popular on the red carpet, and for good reason. It creates a beautiful neckline, drawing the attention upwards, and provides plenty of bust support. Sigourney Weaver looked stunning in her red asymmetrical gown while Kate Beckinsale rocked the one shoulder look (in a metallic!) at an after party. For a modern yet comfortable look, the one shoulder dress is a great way to go.

Shades of nude were seen throughout the evening as stars arrived, with each dress looking equally as stunning as the one before it. Anna Kendrick looked beautiful in her pale pink draped gown and Demi Moore was flawless in a nude strapless ruffled dress. Shades of nude, whether a cocoa color or a light pink, are fashionable and gorgeous! By choosing a dress with some draping or ruffles, a beautiful silhouette is created. To really showcase a nude dress, pair it with neutral colored accessories, such as black or brown, so that the dress becomes the focal point.

From Meryl Streep's demure slit to Zoe Saldana's ruffled slit, a beautiful look is created. Slits are feminine and flirty and truly make a statement. If doing a high slit, make sure your dress does not have a low nered carpet dresses ckline. When showing more skin on the bottom you can be a bit more conservative on top, and vice versa.

Deep Blue
Gorgeous shades of jewel toned and deep blue were seen on the red carpet, taking the place of the usual go-to black dress. Kristin Stewart wore a beautiful midnight blue while Gabourey Sidebe had a lighter but equally rich blue gown, adorned with stunning jewels. These rich shades of blue look great on all skin tones and make a strong statement. Easily paired with gold or silver accessories, a deep blue is a great change if you want to switch up the black.

All of these trends are fun and pretty, and a great way to spice up your wardrobe. Even though the majority of us will not be walking the red carpet anytime soon, we can still wear these looks in our daily life. Whether it is a casual maternity maxi dress with a slit or a one shoulder strap cocktail dress (in a rich blue) there are many fun ways to apply these red carpet trends to your daily life.

Preppy 2010 Bridesmaid Dresses
By Bridget Mora

Your bridesmaid dresses are the biggest fashion element in your wedding, after the bridal gown itself (sorry groom, but no one is going to pay much attention to what you are wearing!). Because they are usually seen in a large number, the bridesmaid dresses have a big impact on the color palette and style of your ceremony. These are some great ideas for classic preppy bridesmaid dresses which will add a dash of timeless charm to your wedding.

A big trend for 2010 is to dress the bridesmaids in a very light neutral color, or even white. If this appeals to you, a fantastic bridesmaid dress would be one of the white eyelet lace dresses from Lilly Pulitzer. Available in strapless styles and styles with straps, the look is one of classic romance, with a crisp preppy twist. A pearl tin cup necklace would be the ideal bridesmaid jewelry for white eyelet bridesmaid dresses. Continue the all white theme, or opt for a custom tin cup necklace made with pale pink pearls. Pink and white peony bouquets will be the perfect finishing detail for your beautiful bridesmaids.

Seersucker is another favorite fabric of preppy brides, and there are some marvelous options available. The dress company thread does fantastic bridesmaid dresses in several colors of seersuckpink dresses er, which would be great for a wedding on a hot summer afternoon. There are both knee length and full length dresses, so you can decide on how formal you want to go with your attendants' attire. Your bridesmaids will love that these dresses do not scream "bridesmaid", which will make them easy to wear again summer after summer.

For a beach wedding with a preppy flavor, check out the great dresses at Vineyard Vines.

A cute detail would be to have your bridesmaids carry bouquets with seashells wired in amongst the flowers to tie in with the shell print on their dresses.

The cotton cady dresses at J Crew have a terrific crisp polished look, and are available in preppy favorites like azalea pink and clover green. They are mostly offered in knee length styles, and the nice thing is that bridesmaids can choose from several different necklines within the same fabric and color.

Certainly, there are some great cpink dresses hoices for floor length preppy bridesmaid dresses as well. Any gown with clean lines in colors like pink, green, or navy could work well.

Clothing - Finding a Nice Stylish Prom Dress
By Julie P. Jones

Teen clothing these days tends to put moms a little on edge. If you're out looking for pants, whether jeans or capris, even in plus sizes, low cut seems to be the order of the day. Pair that with short shirts and shorter skirts and back to school shopping can up being a downright nightmare. I think it's important for young girls today to realize that clothes do not have to be revealing be be fashionable. Most women I know would prefer to be referred to as 'Classy' rather than hot or sexy. This goes double for the upcoming senior and junior prom season. This once in a lifetime special day should be a day for girls to dress up and reveal the sophisticated woman they want to become. Your little girl, like mine, might need a little help attaining to this ideal.

Having seen quite a few of the prom dresses that are available in the marketplace these days I'm wondering whetdress clothing her or not I should reconsider the idea of sending my little girl to the dance. Bleeding edge formal wear for teenagers doesn't need to show a lot of bare skin. Numerous designers make available gorgeous modest prom garments which are absolutely delightful.

When most teenagers imagine a modest prom dress, they cringe. Visions of a tousled old-fashioned gaudy gown instantly come to mind in many teens. On the other hand, modern modest prom dresses have got a contemporary look as well as fantastic styling. The one distinction is that they will offer a bit more coverage compared to many of the heavily marketed brand names in the marketplace.

Me and my daughter had a tough time agreeing on the outfit for her special day. I certainly didn't approve of several of the dresses that she put on in the stores we visited. My little girl was not very excited about my idea of seeking and alternative, more modest dress for prom either. We continued to look around, however, we were obviously not looking at the same styles. I wouldn't even have considered most of what she liked and visa versa.
dress clothing
We did eventually run across a great alternative in contemporary prom dress which we both liked. Ironically, she picked out one of the dresses on her own without realizing the fact that it was one of the more modest prom gowns available in stores these days. This particular dress is spectacular and it delivers all the things that the cool formal wear offers.

Formal wear sure has come a ways in the past twenty years since I went to prom. No longer do we embrace the self-indulgent ribbons and flair and sequins are kept to a minimum on many dresses. This helps make deciding on moderate prom dresses a lot less difficult. Many of the popular styles are very current, fashionable, and seem to be as appropriate for a high school dance as they would be for a black tie affair.

Red Prom Dresses

Are Orange Prom Dresses Right For You?
By David Feltham

red prom dresses
Do you want to know whether an orange prom dress will suit your personality, skin type and body shape? If so, read on to find out exactly that.

Why orange prom dresses?

Prom dresses are classically found in black, white and silver, so if you are thinking of orange I hope you want to stand out from the crowd. To wear orange you will want to have a confident personality that is more than happy to show off your independent style. You will look dazzling and be sure to draw attention.

Which orange?

You will not be stuck for choice as there are many orange prom dresses available to choose from. The range includes varying shades of orange moving between the yellow and red color spectrums. Options move from peach, to tangerine, to fiery and copper shades.

Who does orange suit?

Orange dresses will not suit everyone. Consider your hair and skin color before braving this stand out choice. To pull off the look you will need to have very fair skin, such as creamy white or peach. It will also look best if you have straw colored or strawberry red hair with green or blue eyes. Alternatively girls with golden skin tones and red hair or brown eyed brunettes will also accentuate the look.


As with all prom dresses there are thousands of styles available to you. These range from elegant ball gowns to short cocktail dresses. Two aspects of a dress that you will want to consider are:

Sleeve style - options include sleeveless, strapless, spaghetti strap, halter and one shoulder. Sleeveless and strapless are the most popular although you will want to bear in mind how comfortable you are with your arms and shoulders before deciding.
red prom dresses
Dress length - options include above the knee, knee length, mid calf and full length. For prom dresses full length is the most common, but as you are the more adventurous type going for orange, a shorter style may suit you best or perhaps a full length combined with a thigh high split.

To combine your bold orange color with a sexy style why not consider something with a plunging neckline, a low back or a deep feathered hem.

The overriding important thing to consider when choosing your prom dress style is your body shape. You want to feel comfortable with the final look by selecting a flattering style.


A budget of $100-200 will ensure you have a wide range of prom dresses to choose from, although $500 will get you something that much more spectacular.


As well as your prom dress you will also need to decide which accessories you need. Orange accessories, such as opera length satin gloves, satin evening bags, and shawls/wraps can all be found. And why not get your date to sport a silk handkerchief in a matching color?
red prom dresses
For your make up, use soft peach and rusty browns that complement your dress. And splash out on shoes, jewelry and hair accessories that are overstated for simple dresses or understated for more extravagant designs.

Buying tips

If you are buying online you should be able to find some heavily discounted dresses - consider prior year lines for great bargains.

So if you want to be center of attention, go for it in an orange prom dress. Just make sure you have the right skin and hair color to pull it off. Choose a style to best suit your body shape and buy early to avoid any last minute panics.

Petite Dresses

Choosing the Right Petite Dress
By Rafael Jomis

petite dresses
The variety of dresses available for casual, office or evening wear is without a doubt huge. Getting the right kind that matches your body is where the trick lies. The first step is understanding what kind of body type you have. The classifications that can be made here are many, but the one of interest here in precision is the petite kind. If you are a petite woman, you need to get a petite dress. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as just going to a store and picking one out. There are some factors that you need to consider, especially in the kind of dress that you get.

Starting with the length, you can go with a petite dress that falls at the knee length, or shorter. This kind of dress will flaunt your legs and make it seem that you are taller than you really are. This needs to be matched off with high heels for the illusion to be complete. Full length petite dress, one that goes straight to your ankles is also a wise choice. They are goopetite dresses d in adding some visual height. However, calf length dresses do not derive the desired outcome, and you should avoid them, at least if you are trying to look taller.

V-neck petite dresses create the illusion that you have a longer neck than you actually do. The end result is that you end up looking taller. Accessorizing is important in this case. A good necklace is really complementary. Ensure that you avoid large belts as they diffuse the look and make you look shorter. If you are going for a petite dress with patterns, make sure they are at least vertical patterns. Horizontal ones are simply a no-no since they make you look bigger or wider and not really taller.

Color coordination is of the essence when it comes to picking out a perfect petite dress. If it's a two piece dress, ensure that the colors are uniform.

You should take some time out looking for petite dresses as they are not as readily available as the others. But with petite dresses a little dedicated effort, you can get something with all the aforementioned characteristics.

4. Shop in advance. The wedding of your son will probably just like the rest: they are scheduled in many months' time.
