Personal Shopper: An Atypical Prom Dress for Shelby

Shelby writes, Greetings, Outblush Beauties! I'm trying to get a head start on shopping for a unique, unconventional dress for my senior prom and I was hoping that y'all could help! I'm five foot seven, with olive skin and about a size four. My Prince Charming is the same height as me, so I won't be wearing heels and I'd like to get a long dress. I would like to find a dark green/ brown dress for under $175. Thank you so much!

Phew! Shelby, this was a tough one. There's not a lot out there in brown that deviates much from strapless sheaths, though green was more PROMising (ha!). If none of these are quite right, I'd suggest considering something shorter. There are a lot more interesting dresses once you move past floor length. Good luck!

1. Jade One-Shoulder Prom Gown ($218 on sale)
2.Milano Formals B8756 Prom Dress ($168)
3.Unique Vintage Green Floral Print Gown ($128)
4. Taffeta Fan Mermaid Dress ($148)
5. Sweetheart Ruffle Gown ($82)
6. Antique Style Gold Lace Dress ($118) Shown here with a pink accent, but it's also available in brown!

AMAZING choice, ladies! I'm not crazy about #2, but OMG I WISH I had an occasion requiring me to buy one of the other ones. #1? #3? #5? Since all the TV shows have 30 year olds playing teenagers anyway, maybe no one would notice if I crashed a senior prom... :)
