Exquisite Prom Night Gown (by Mike Dela Rosa)

We bought this Mike Dela Rosa gown two years ago for my daughter’s Digital Arts Project and Presentation Exhibit 10.0 event in 2016. My daughter loved the fit and simplicity of the gown. But since the occasion is already over, the gown is kept in the closet. I don’t have plans of disposing or selling it. If I have another daughter she could wear the gown to her prom night. She would look lovely in it. 🙂 Don’t you think this an elegant prom night gown?

A Gown or a Cocktail Dress for Prom Night

Once news about prom is announced, the first thing that teenage girls think about is what they are going to wear. The endless search for the perfect gown or dress will start and just about everyone is concerned that they should not have the same dress as another person.

One of the dilemmas that people have however is, if they should wear a gown or a cocktail dress for prom night. This actually depends on where the event will be held and what the dress code states. Most programs will state what type of clothing they would recommend to be worn for the special event. If the invitation says that girls are supposed to wear gowns, by all means wear a gown. Following the dress code is important and it will also show how much discipline you have.

Since it is prom season, finding the perfect dress or gown is easy because there are a lot available. Do remember that some of the gowns or dresses that you will purchase may be too steep for your original budget. Try to keep things simple and wearable by not accessorizing too much.

Where to buy the best prom dress

A neighbor’s daughter asked me where I bought my daughter’s prom dress last year. I told her that we didn’t buy the dress; we only borrowed it from my niece. The girl said she has a limited budget so I told her to ask her mom to accompany her to Divisoria, which is our local hub for quality but inexpensive dresses. I also suggested that she check out for second-hand dresses in the thrift shops, or better yet, scout for gown-for-rent outlets nearby. She can have the gown altered a bit by an expert to have the perfect fit of the gown or dress. The girl said she and her mom will spend the whole day to look for that perfect prom dress today.
