It’s already November then few weeks from now it will be December and just around the bend is 2016. Then it will February then March. You might ask why I am saying all these, well February to March is the season for Proms and yes my dear readers even though I am not in high school anymore I am still excited for Prom season. Yes I am excited because I get to share with you girls my prom outfit suggestions.
Last time, I suggested for pastel colors for Prom Dresses; now after browsing through some sites that carry special occasion dresses I can’t help but drool over those dresses with rhinestone beadings in them. You may well know that wedding gowns nowadays are adorned and studded with crystals and rhinestones giving any bride the feeling of being a royalty, yeah even just the feeling can make any bride the prettiest of them all.
According to Wikipedia, originally, rhinestones were rock crystals gathered from the river Rhine in Europe, hence the name, although some were also found in areas like the Alps. The availability was greatly increased in the 18th century when the Alsatian jeweler Georg Friedrich Strass had the idea to imitate diamonds by coating the lower side of glass with metal powder. Hence, rhinestones are called strass in many European languages.
Rhinestones can be used as imitations of diamonds, and some manufacturers even manage to reproduce the glistening effect real diamonds have in the sun. In 1955, the Aurora Borealis, a thin, vacuum-sputtered metallic coating applied to crystal stones to produce an iridescent effect, was introduced by Swarovski.
Aurora Borealis tends to reflect whatever color is worn near it, and it is named after the Aurora Borealis atmospheric phenomenon, also known as the "Northern Lights". Typically, crystal rhinestones have been used on costumes, apparel and jewelry. Crystal rhinestones are produced mainly in Austria by Swarovski and in the Czech Republic by Preciosa and a few other glassworks in northern Bohemia. In the US, these are sometimes called Austrian Crystal.
So now, how about picking prom dresses adorned with rhinestones and crystals too? Why wait for your wedding day for you to feel like a princess? Imagine walking into a ballroom in a rhinestone embellished prom dress... You will shine like no other, which is for sure!
Just take a look at the dresses I have picked from PickledLooksfor this blog post. I bet you are as in love with them dresses just like I do! Gosh I wish I can have one of them! Well, I wouldn’t know if anytime soon I will get to be invited in a formal event or something right?
