Gowns for Prom

Last night as a result of realising I didn’t own a single formal gown and out of sheer boredom, I went to Etsy and found 5 random gowns that caught my eye (mostly vintage because I was looking for something on the cheap):

1) Black Maxi Grecian dress, $42.00

2) Green Grecian dress$62.00


I like how the neckline is reminiscent of those glamour dresses of the 1930s! If I’m not wrong the gowns of the 1970s attempted to replicate the dresses of the 1930s.

3) Ice Blue Lace Gown $45.00


A real beauty from the 1930s, I love how the seller made all sorts of Indiana Jones puns in her listing. Hahaha. Pity it’s not in very good shape anymore.

4) Baby Blue Dress $228.00


This was really the listing that started off this entire list. I was blown away by the light delicate colour and the cute neck details. Pity it’s far too big for me and is priced pretty steeply.

5) Chistmas Gown


Okay yeah this is a joke, makes me think of Austen (and Pride and Prejudice and zombies). But doesn’t it look pretty? Awwww.

Bonus:
6) Black Edwardian Gown


A reproduction dress from the early 1900s, this dress was just too pretty to pass on for this list. The seller mentions Titanic and I certainly can see this being worn by Kate Winslet. I love the neckline details.
