For most high schoolers, May is the month of gearing up to study for finals, planning summer vacations and celebrating that the school year is coming to a close by attending the famous dance known as “prom.”
A prom is a semi-formal (black tie) dance or gathering of high school students. The prom is typically held near the end of the junior and senior year. Proms figure greatly in popular culture and are major events among high school students. The event is often a combined junior/senior dance.
A popular tradition at prom, besides exchanging corsages and boutonnieres, are formal, gorgeous, glorious dresses and gowns to be worn by the females.

Prom Fun Fact: At a prom, a Prom King and Prom Queen may be revealed. These are honorary titles awarded to students elected in a school-wide vote prior to the prom, and these titles are generally awarded to seniors. Other students may be honored with inclusion in a “Prom Court.” The Prom King and Prom Queen are often given crowns to wear. Members of the Prom Court may be given sashes to wear and photographed together.
In the early days of high school proms, the nighttime dance served a function similar to a debutante ball. Early proms were times of firsts: the first adult social event for teenagers; the first time taking the family car or fancy limousine out after dark; the first real dress up affair, etc., similar to a milestone event such as a First Holy Communion or a wedding.

Prom Fun Fact: Usage of the term ‘prom’ is becoming more common around the world and appears to be a colloquial and regional practice. Formal English usage suggests “Prom” is a noun and should be preceded by an article, although it is often not a practice. “Prom” is a shortened version of promenade.
Popular Prom Attire:

  1. Girls wear traditional ladies’ dresses or evening gowns and adorn themselves with fancy jewelry such as earrings and a necklace. Girls often wear perfume, makeup, lipstick and blush. Girls also wear a corsage (either wrist or pin-on) given to them by their prom dates. Many times girls have their hair professionally styled for their big night.
  2. Boys often dress in black or white formal wear, sometimes paired with ties or bow ties with vests, in some cases in colors matching their date’s dress. Boys are given matching boutonnieres to be worn on their lapels by their dates.

Prom Fun Fact: After the prom, parents or a community may host a “prom after-party” at a restaurant, entertainment venue or a student’s home. Other traditions often include trips to nearby attractions, such as amusement parks, regional or local parks, or family or rented vacation houses. Some of these post-prom events are chaperoned and some are unsupervised. Most after-prom events are held at the school, and involve bringing entertainment such as interactive games, artists and other entertainers to the school.
Always follow the golden rule: dress off the charts glam for the Prom held at school!

Prom Fun Fact: The concept of extending prom to homeschooled students has increased in recent years. Although some school districts in the United States and Canada allow homeschool students to attend prom in the school district where they reside, many homeschool groups also organize their own proms. Some states, such as Oregon, Ohio, Georgia, Tennessee and Michigan also host statewide homeschool proms, which any homeschool student is welcome to attend. Glorious!
Primped and poised for a perfect prom!

Although all of these prom dresses are beautiful, I am particularly fond of this off-the-shoulder, sleek dress in the baby doll pink. I love the dainty look, the silk fabric and the mermaid style cut! Stunning!

The custom of the high school prom exists in many parts of the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Africa, Asia, the Honduras, Peru, Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago and most Caribbean countries, Uruguay and many others.
Prom Fun Fact: While high school year books didn’t start covering proms and including prom pictures until the 1930s and 1940s, historians believe proms have existed in high schools as early as the 19th century. The prom has since taken on a larger-than-life meaning for high school students.

As people gained more money and leisure time, proms have become more extravagant and elaborate. Junior and senior proms are often held at hotel ballrooms and country clubs, as opposed to the school gymnasium. Where arriving in a compact or standard car was once acceptable, luxury cars and limousines often transports high schoolers today. In some ways, the prom has become the pinnacle of high school events in a student’s life.
Be prom smart, dress the stylish, fashionable, gorgeous, sensational part!

Beach season equals bikini season. Love it or loathe it, warm summer days in the surf and sun are enjoyable and fun for everyone!
Swimwear is clothing designed to be worn by people engaging in water-based activity or water sports, such as swimming, diving, surfing or sun bathing. Although many types of bathing suits exist, a bikini (or two piece bathing suit) is one of the most popular.
A bikini is usually a women’s abbreviated two piece swimsuit with a bra type top for the chest and underwear cut below the naval. The basic design is simple: two triangles of fabric on top cover the women’s breasts and two triangles of fabric on the bottom cover the groin in front and the buttocks in back (unless you prefer to wear a thong bikini. Then all buns are out)! In a bikini or two piece bathing suit, the size of the bottom can range from full pelvic coverage to a revealing thong or G-string design.

Bathing Suit Fun Fact: Rayon was used in the 1920s in the manufacture of tight-fitting swimsuits, but its durability, especially when wet, proved problematic, with jersey and silk also being used. In the 1930s, new materials were being developed and used in swimwear, particularly latex and nylon, and swimsuits gradually began hugging the body.
The modern two piece bathing suit design first attracted public notice in Paris on July 5, 1946. French mechanical engineer Louis Reard introduced a design he named the ‘bikini’, taking the name from the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean. Four days earlier, the United States had initiated its first peace-time nuclear weapons test at Bikini Atoll as part of Operations Crossroads. Reard hoped his swimsuit’s revealing style would create an “explosive commercial and cultural reaction”, similar to the explosion at Bikini Atoll.  His hunch paid off, it did, big time!
Beach baby…beach baby…there on the sand from July to the end of September…Surfing was fun, we’d be out in the sun everyday! (The Beach Boys)

Bathing Suit Fun Fact: Bathing suits are often lined with another layer of fabric incase the outer material becomes see through when wet. Most swimsuits in modern culture leave at least the head, shoulders, arms and legs exposed.
Bathing Suit Not So Fun Fact: Germs, bacteria and mold can grow very quickly on wet bathing suits. Medical professionals warn against sharing bathing suits with others.
When donned in a darling bathing suit of your own, you’ll stand out like no other! Beach bomb!

Bikini beach bonanza – two pieces of material never looked so good!
Bikini Fun Fact: Common glamour shots of popular actresses and models played a large part in bringing the bikini into mainstream fashion. During the 1950s, Hollywood stars such as Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, Lana Turner, Elizabeth Taylor, Esther Williams, Tina Louise, Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe took advantage of the risqué publicity associated with the bikini by posing for photographs wearing the two piece bathing beauties. In Europe, 17-year-old Brigitte Bardot wore scanty bikinis in French films.



Bikini Fun Fact: By the 1960s the bikini caught on to mainstream fashion popularity, and by 1963, the movie Beach Party, starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon led a wave of films that made the bikini a pop-culture symbol. In 1965, it was reported in Time magazine that “65% of the young set had crossed over to wearing bikinis in public.”
Raquel Welch’s fur bikini in One Million Years B.C. (1966) gave the world the most iconic bikini shot of all time and the poster image became an iconic moment in cinema history.

Louis Reard’s company folded in 1988, four years after his death. By the end of the century, the bikini had become the most popular beachwear around the world. This global credit is given to the power of women more than the power of fashion.
Bikini Fun Fact: By the early 2000s, bikinis had become an $811 million business annually, according to the NPD Group, a consumer and retail information company, and had boosted spin-off services like bikini waxing and the sun tanning industries.

Bikini Fun Fact: Bikini variations include string bikinis, monokinis, tankinis, skirtini, granny bikini, hikinis, tie-sides, teardrops and thongs.
“I can’t take my eyes off of you with that shapely, stunning bikini you have on.”
“This is my favorite bathing suit for taking a swim or simply soaking up the sun.”
“You must exercise day and night to keep that swimsuit fitting just right.”
“All body shapes and sizes can wear a bikini…fitted loose or fitted tight.”
“Your bikini is so lovely I imagine you don’t want to change out of the bathing suit.”
“Yes. Sometimes I wear it in the winter months…braving the cold is quite a hoot!”
Bikini/Two Piece Bathing Suits: Good for soaking up the sun or taking an early winter morning run! Pure fashion fun!

Although sarongs are worn around the world and denote different dress traditions, in North and South America, as well as Europe, sarongs are mainly worn as beach wear or as a cover-up over swimwear.
A sarong is often made of a thin, light fabric, often rayon, and may feature decorative fringe on both sides. The sarong may have ties, which are long thin straps of fabric which the wearer can tie together to prevent the wrap from falling down. Sarongs in the western culture are worn mostly by women as beach cover-ups. Western men who wear male sarongs are often influenced by the Scottish style men skirts known as kilts.
Summer days…sensational sarongs!

The American public is most familiar with the sarong for the dozens of motion pictures set in the South Seas, most of them romantic dramas made in the 1930s and 1940s. Dorothy Lamour is by far the actress most linked with the sarong, which was designed by Edith Head. Lamour was nicknamed “The Sarong Girl” by the press and wore a sarong on occasion in traditional films.

Sarong Fun Fact: Numerous tying methods exist to hold a sarong to the wearer’s body. In some cases, techniques customarily differ according to the sex of the wearer. If a sarong has ties, the ties may be used to hold the garment in place. Sarong ties give you extra hold and security. If the sarong doesn’t have ties, a pin or broach may be used to clamp the sarong together, the fabric may be tightly tucked under itself in layers, the corners of the main sheet may be wrapped around the body and knotted, or a belt may be worn to hold the sarong in place.

Since I’m on a roll with colored clothing (green, black/white), to keep in the realm of the gorgeous seasons of spring and summer, let’s highlight yellow clothing!
With the weather warming, plants growing and sun shining, now is the time to put away  your black and gray winter wardrobe and dress in lighter, brighter, bolder colors. What better color to warm your heart and uplift your mood than the beautiful color yellow?
Yellow  is the color between green and orange on the spectrum of visible light. Yellow is evoked by light with a predominant wavelength of roughly 570-590 nm. In traditional color theory used in painting, and in the subtractive color system used in color printing, yellow is a primary color! The color yellow relates to acquired knowledge, resonates with the left or logic side of the brain that stimulates mental faculties and creates mental agility and perception.

Yellow Fun Fact: The word yellow comes from the Old English ‘geolu’, meaning yellow or yellowish. It has the same Indo-European base, ‘gel’ as the word gold and yell, or cry-out.
Let’s give a cry-out and shout-out for the glorious color yellow; always in fabulous fashion no doubt!
Yellow is the lightest hue of the color spectrum, emitting uplifting and illuminating feelings, offering hope, cheerfulness and fun.
Walk, no run, to your nearest clothing store and fill your closet with yellow clothing for having fun in the mid-day sun!

Yellow Fun Fact: According to surveys in Europe, Canada and the United States, yellow is the color people most often associate with amusement, gentleness and spontaneity. The color yellow plays an important role in China, where it is seen as the color of happiness, glory, wisdom, harmony and culture.
Yellow, in the form of yellow ochre pigment made from clay, was one of the first colors used in prehistoric cave art. The cave of Lascaux has an image of a horse colored with yellow, estimated to be 17,300 years old.
When dressed in the color yellow, look magnificent, majestic and bold…never old! Even in yellowish shades of gold!

Yellow Fun Fact: Yellow is the most highly visible of all colors, which is why yellow is used for pedestrian crossings, firetrucks, road maintenance equipment, school buses and taxicabs. Yellow is often used for safety and accident prevention information, and for warning signs, since the color yellow is traditionally used to signal caution, rather than danger (Slow down as opposed to Stop)! Take note of crossings which are marked in white – they are less easy to see than those marked in yellow, particularly on wet and cloudy days.
Slow down and smell the yellow flowers – flower power! By the way, yellow is the number one color of all fresh flowers in the world.
Dress in glorious shades of yellow to wipe the rain and clouds away and bring back a sun-filled day!

Yeah for yellow clothes – as every fashion diva knows!
Complementary Colors Fun Fact: Traditionally, the complementary color of yellow is violet; the two colors are opposite each other on the color wheel long used by painters. Vincent Van Gogh, an avid student of color theory, used combinations of yellow and violet in several paintings for the maximum contrast and harmony. This validates the  phrase, “Opposites attract!” Think “The Starry Night!”

“Thank you, fashion judge. I almost passed up yellow and dressed myself in green.”

If you’re looking to buy a new fashion garment for your wardrobe, or if you need an excuse to yet again lavish yourself in trendy clothes, every closet should be home to at least one jumpsuit!
A jumpsuit is a one-piece garment that generally consists of a combined top and pants (where the pants go down to the feet/ankles). Somewhat similar to coveralls or overalls, jumpsuits can be loose or tight fitting and can be found in a number of style preferences.
Jumpsuits are a staple of popular clothing in women’s fashion!

Starting in the 1960s, the jumpsuit has made occasional appearances in both common and high fashion. The jumpsuit was at the height of its popularity in the 1980s, and the stylish one-piece garment has been used as stage costumes in theater productions and by various singers and bands. Think Britney Spears, Pink, the Spice Girls and Suzi Quatro, who have all performed on stage in one-piece signature jumpsuits. And let’s not forget male performers such as Elvis Presley, Mick Jagger, Roger Daltry and Freddie Mercury, who have all stood on stage and entertained audiences dressed in flamboyant one-piece jumpsuits. Ah yes, they have entertained me!
Bring out your fashion flair in a jet-set one-piece jumpsuit!
Jumpsuit Fashion Tip: Make sure that whatever shoes you decide to wear with your jumpsuit match and compliment the style. Shoes can make or break an outfit!

Jumpsuit Fun Fact: One-piece jumpsuits have a tendency to make the wearer look longer and leaner. Since the garment has an unbroken line running from the neck to the feet, this tends to flatter body shapes, providing an elongated appearance.
Jumpsuits tend to make their mark in high fashion as the one-piece wonder is often attractive to fashion designers. Whatever your fashion sense, jumpsuits run the realm of casual to club chic, and the enticing garment can be dressed up or down depending on your choice of shoes and accessories.
I love black clothes, and I find black jumpsuits to be both modern and elegant, being worn as standard day or office clothing, or fancy evening wear.
Slinky and sassy, black jumpsuits always look classy!

Jumpsuit Fun Fact: Jumpsuits can also be referred to as rompers or onesies. Rompers appeared in the United States in the early 1900s and are particularly popular because they are generally ideal for movement and not as restrictive as separate shirts and shorts or pants. In France, for many years, rompers were only worn by boys.
Since 2006, rompers have enjoyed a comeback as a fashionable garment for women.  In the Spring 2009 fashion collections, Marc Jacobs, Max Azria and Mara Hoffman were among name designers who showcased various versions of the romper.

Glamorous jewelry is loved by many. No surprise there! Gorgeous stones, gold, silver, diamonds, rhinestones, colorful beads all make for lovely pieces of jewelry to decorate your body and your outfit! Adding just the right jewelry items to the clothes that you have put together is like adding extra sparkle to the stars!
One piece of jewelry that I absolutely adore is the attached ring/bracelet ensemble. One piece of jewelry, two eye-catching pieces of pure illuminating pizzazz!
All jewelry is luscious and creative to look at, but there is something about the attached ring/bracelet piece that makes it special – elegant, vogue, elan! Noticeable and strong!

There is no denying that these delicate pieces of jewelry are stunning. But are they practical to wear? you ask!
As a true fashion diva, my answer is yes. I am wearing one right now, as I write this blog post. I have one on my right hand, and I am right handed. I write and the fabulous piece of bling moves right along with me! The one I am wearing is made from black stones, with a black ring that goes on my middle finger, then across my hand is chain and flowers made from stones, then chain that clamps around my wrist, making the bracelet. I love my unusual piece of bling.
For those of you that follow my blog, you know how much I love fashion and style, and I wear what works for me. What others think pretty much goes out the window, as I am comfortable with my style choices for myself. Yes, I do wear my attached ring/bracelet to the grocery store when I’m in the mood! I’ve even pumped my own gas with this classy little lady flowing around my wrist and across my hand! Simply grand!

Ring/Bracelet Fun Facts: These bracelets are referred to by many terms, the most known being the slave bracelet. This divine piece of jewelry is associated with several cultures and are often times worn as belly dancing or harem jewelry. They are a favored piece of jewelry by the Gothic subculture. They are a favored piece of jewelry by me too!
These ring/bracelets are also referred to as hand flowers. Quite an appropriate name, as they do add beauty and grace to your hand and wrist, much like flowers add beauty and grace to most everything!
Get your fashion fix on with the attached bracelet and ring!

Slave Bracelets may refer to:

  1. A copper bracelet used as a medium of exchange or trade.
  2. Any bracelet made of chain links.
  3. An Indian wrist bracelet joined to a ring by a chain.

Another beautiful form of the ring/bracelet is the attached toe ring/anklet, that make for exquisite foot jewelry. They add lovely ornamental decorations to your feet, and appear sensual and soft. Pampered precious gems for the feet and the eyes!

Other types of bracelets include charm bracelets, bangles, slap bracelets, beaded bracelets, link bracelets and karma bracelets. All bracelets are pretty and fashionable in their own right, but in my estimation, none can match the regal glamour of the attached ring/bracelet! A breathtaking sight!
Wrap your hand with the powerful, popular ring/bracelet. Jewelry done right!
Ring/Bracelet Fashion Warning: When you wear one of these eye appealing, unique pieces of jewelry, they are a major conversation piece. If you don’t want to get complimented, or you aren’t in a mood to talk to admiring strangers, wear a different piece of jewelry!
A way to achieve flamboyant and fabulous fashion fun? Wear an attached bracelet and ring! Ah, to wear this smashing bling makes a trendy gal’s heart sing!
