Time to Show Off
There was great excitement at The Prom Room, here at The Wedding Boutique, last week as we prepared for our first Prom Show.
A local secondary school was hosting the event; what a wonderful chance to show off our beautiful dresses, shoes and jewellery to Carlisle’s young ladies! But I hadn’t realised just how difficult it would be to decide which prom dresses to take, as you know, I have many favourites, and I felt it impossible to leave any of them behind.
Among the first to be included was Gino Cerruti 8140B, which is a real eye catcher; it had been in the shop window for only a few days and every head was turning towards it. Because it’s stunning. In fuchsia pink, the soft chiffon gently twists in a sweetheart neckline at the front of the bust and is ruched down to the beautiful beaded waist, flowing elegantly from there to the floor. It has beaded straps which are shaped over the shoulders to a neat low back.
Next we chose Prom Frocks PF965 in violet (well, purple just can’t be ignored for too long). It’s a gorgeous satin gown with pleated bodice and lace-up back, as well as having elaborately detailed diamante decoration at the front and back. The vibrant colour catches the light and shimmers exotically; another show stopper!
But by putting these two dresses alongside Gino Cerruti 1300J in Turquoise I knew we would do more than draw attention. This is the dress that came very close to tempting my own daughter away from her first love (you can find out why in an earlier blog ‘A Stolen Heart’) and it has the same breath-taking effect as the others.
In no time we had an excited group of girls gasping in delight and admiration as they gathered around our dresses and it was a fabulous evening with all the prom frocks being greatly admired. So now it looks like we’re going to be busy as the girls come into the shop to be enchanted all over again.
In fact, a girl has just been smitten by the Gino Cerruti 8140B in fuschia pink today. Head over heels in love. She'll be wearing it on her Prom Night, and she’s going to steal the show.
