Prom Dresses from Rare Fashion


Hello! I have been an absolutely dreadful blogger lately, due to A-Level exams... but I had my last one on Friday, meaning I'm now free for three whole months! AAAH! All I've been wearing recently is pretty much jeans & a t-shirt (revision really sucks all the creativity out of a person), so I'm keen to get back to blogging and actually wearing nice things. Hooray!

As you may remember, in my last post I mentioned that I was desperately searching for a prom dress. Well, I was lucky enough to be sent this beautiful Babydoll Chiffon dress from Rare (you might have seen the brand in the concessions section at Topshop), and it has completely solved the issue! The dress is girly and floaty, and, as an added bonus, it looks like it could easily belong in either of my favourite two decades - the 20s & the 60s. As my prom is going to be slightly less formal than the normal sort, I don't think its length is a problem - and its just that little bit different from all the others. What do you think of it?



Anyway, as its 'that time of year' again - the prom season, I thought I'd recommend Rare if you're still looking for a dress! Their clothes are good value for money, won't break the bank, and the dresses can easily be re-styled for casual wear. I couldn't decide between these dresses (especially as they're now in the sale):


They also have a new, more luxurious line called 'Rare Opulence' if you're looking for something extra special. Aaaand... if you type in 'OPULENCE' at the checkout, you get 20% off!
I hope this didn't sound too much like an advertising feature - I'd only ever promote brands if I think you'd like them - I'm really loving the vintage vibe in all of Rare's dresses!

I'll be back soon :) - yay freedom!

You remind me of a forest nymph, but as beautiful and an exquisitely dressed one, of course!

You're going to look lovely at prom.
