Prom = Spring + Youth.




Modest yet modern and figure flattering.

Skip shiny. Skip sparkling. Skip sexy. Skip show stopping.

Be a vision of femininity rather than a side show spectacle.

Celebrate your unique beauty by exclusively wearing styles that complement your body type!

For some of us, it is still cold outside. Wearing dresses and skirts in this kind of weather and keeping warm can be a challenge in itself. But it can be and is done. Keep in mind, there was a time when women only wore dresses.

Beyond the obvious sweaters and longer lengths and heavier fabrics in dresses and skirts, it is key that you wear

A Feminine Coat

This longer coat accentuates your waist. It can be belted, cinched, or fitted and preferably in any color other than black. It can be puffed out or slimming wool. As long as it shows off your waist, you’ll look like a girl 🙂

Warm Underwear

Depending on your preference, choose thermal, long, or simply layer undergarments. Try layering leggings, tights, or socks for extra warmth. Though not cheap, long silk underwear is an option. Not only is it not bulky, it’s warm and feels great on the skin.

Feminine Boots

You can’t lose with knee-high and heels (when feasible). The length helps to keep your legs warm and heels keep your feet above the cold ground. Think feminine not simply female. Avoid all uggly and female versions of male boots.

**For an extra touch, add a decorative pin or brooch to your feminine scarf or hat!


adj tending to initiate change rather than waiting to respond after something happens

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. – Dale Carnegie

Failure is not our only punishment for laziness: there is also the success of others. – Jules Renard


adj having an intended or expected effect

The Wind and the Sun

The Wind and the Sun were disputing which was the stronger. Suddenly they saw a traveler coming down the road, and the Sun said: “I see a way to decide our dispute. Whichever of us can cause that traveler to take off his cloak shall be regarded as the stronger. You begin.” So the Sun retired behind a cloud, and the Wind began to blow as hard as it could upon the traveler. But the harder he blew the more closely did the traveler wrap his cloak round him, till at last the Wind had to give up in despair. Then the Sun came out and shone in all his glory upon the traveler, who soon found it too hot to walk with his cloak on.

Moral: Kindness effects more than severity

The impression of femininity is infinitely more effective at altering perceptions than any fight, struggle, or argument will ever be. – Jackie Hampton

A beautiful outfit begins with beautiful foundations.

Spring is the perfect time for new lingerie.

Carine Gilson, Damaris, Strumpet & Pink . . . lovely but expensive.

Not necessary.

In this order, focus on

  • functionality (it “works” AND disappears under my clothing)
  • comfort (I can easily wear this all day and into the evening if I need to)
  • beauty (it’s attractive to me AND I feel attractive in it)

Keep it pretty, ladies!

I am participating in a new challenge.

The Pretty Girls Rock Dresses Challenge (see below).

And I encourage every woman who reads this blog to take part.

We need you. The more ladies, the prettier!

Be the change you want to see in the world. – Mahatma Gandhi

The impression of femininity is infinitely more effective at altering perceptions than any fight, struggle, or argument will ever be. And that is simply because fights, struggles, and arguments are masculine action.

Participate at your own level of comfort. You don’t have to go all out.

Share the experience with friends. It’ll be a lot more fun.

The point is to “bring back *GLAMOUR. *GRACE. *CHARM. *FEMININTY. *PRISSYness and most of all BEAUTY.”

You know you wanna do it 🙂

Dressing to highlight your impeccable grooming, beauty, and careful attention to your appearance is seen as feminine. The result is pretty. You probably appreciate and enjoy your femininity. Positively attractive woman.

Dressing to showcase your fashion sense or impress other women is seen as neutral. The result is trendy or stylish. Your manner of dress ignores your femininity so you may be high-maintenance, immature, or masculine. Just a woman.

Dressing to attract male attention by revealing your body is seen as desperate, needy, or advertisement to attract business. The result is sexy. You are willing to exploit your female anatomy in dress and perhaps in other ways also. Negatively attractive (ex. car accident) woman.

Dressing for pure utility or comfort is seen as lazy. The result is negative. You don’t bother about your appearance, don’t expect or desire any attention, and so don’t receive any. Unattractive woman.

Without speaking, your appearance tells the world the type of woman who     you believe yourself to be.

You will be treated accordingly.

Choose wisely.
