How To Be A Stylish Prom Queen Without Breaking The Bank

Cool Girl's Diary/ Fashion

Prom season is here. And What the High school girls have in mind? The perfect dress and accessories to wear, a date for the party, maybe aspirations of being a Prom Queen or college options? Let’s figure out.

What is The Prom? It celebrates the end of high school years. Back in the times, there was a big tradition around the Prom night, girls were supposed to have a date, and He would present her with a corsage.

Times changed, and these things are not a requirement anymore. But the party is still a big tradition and investment of time and money for the graduates.


At least Fashion is more affordable nowadays; You are able to dress in style saving time and money with the commodity to shop online for your dream Prom dress. The one I am wearing it is from the affordable Ever-Pretty brand. They have a large variety of dresses and accessories for all the occasions with a price that it is not going to break the bank. My choice of dress was based on my taste and style since blue is my favorite color and I love Greek-style dresses. The Sleeveless Elegant dress looked like the perfect choice for me. If I had to experience the Prom again, this would be the “dress.”


I was trying to remember my graduation party; it was such a long time ago… In Brazil, We don’t have all these traditions around the Prom, but certainly, We like to celebrate in style and with a big party. I can’t  remember a lot about the party, but I remember I had the dress I wanted, a date and enjoyed the party until the end. Although I don’t remind a lot of the Prom party I have great memories of my high school years and the friends I made.  


The high school experience ends being the same no matter Where You are in the World. I remember watching the “Ferries Bueller’s Day off” and wanting to be Ferris for a day too. It sounded so much fun!


There is always the most famous gang of girls or boys, the nerds, the rock’n’roll types, the jokes and all the nicknames you could come out with. The most memorable one for me it was a boy We used to call “ Shrimp,” all the time He was nervous his skin turned all red.


I was not the popular type, far away from being a Prom Queen material but I was happy the way I was. Ironically, years later I moved to NYC and turned myself into a Model finding that being a Beauty Queen is not an easy job.

The education I received is one of the most valuable tools I have. I am so thankful for my High School days and the friends I made during these wonderful years.

Being a Prom Queen is not a matter of being the most popular one, neither the style you choose to be. It is more about being extraordinary in your way.


What are you waiting for? Bring it up that Prom Queen spirit inside you and enjoy your Prom Night!

What is the dress style you would pick for your Prom night? And what is the most famous nickname of one of your High School mates You can remember?

    I like the way you share fashion mixed with a great story. You have an interesting life, Carla! Keep sharing your adventures with us. I think I am going to pick a short dress for my college prom, I already took a look at the Ever Pretty site and will be making my final decision soon. My favorite nickname in school is Ginger Girl for this girl that wanted to look like one of Spice Girls and had freckles and red. Hahaha!!;)
