Your Prom Date

Worrying about who to take to prom?

There are so many options that it’s totally unnecessary for you to stress about it (if you are).

Your prom date could be:

Your best friend

Your boyfriend

A guy friend

A girl friend

If you’re one of those people building up the courage to ask a crush to prom, remember the Nike motto:


In the long run, the only thing that should matter about your prom date is that it is somebody you can enjoy the night with.

Prom Checklist – Everything you’ll need for that big night

1. The perfect prom dress. The importance of looking your best on prom night cannot be stressed enough – and, it’s something you can start planning now.

(Visit our website to view our gorgeous prom collection, or give us a call if you want to get started on looking glamorous on prom night. We’re more than happy to help!)
2. Shoes. A prom dress isn’t complete without matching shoes. Find a pair that will complement your dress.
3. A date. Your best friend, boyfriend, boyfriend’s friend, friend… whoever you choose to go with, make sure you find the right person to spend it with. Prom night is one of those nights that goes into the books, and you want to make sure you enjoy it with the right people.
4. Your date’s tux. If you’re going to look fabulous, your date should too! Make sure he’s got a tux for prom night!
5. Accessories. Don’t forget to glam up! Whether just a simple piece or several accessories, you can never go wrong spicing up your outfit with some earrings, bracelets, or necklaces – whatever looks good.
6. Restaurant and/or hotel reservations. Gotta plan when and where that after party’s gonna be!
7. Prom tickets

Prom night eve and Prom day

1. Eight hours of sleep. You’re going to need as much beauty rest as you can get!
2. An appointment at the salon. Schedule your appointment ahead of time, as salons tend to book quickly during prom season. Also schedule your appointment a couple of hours before prom. Get your hair, nails, and eyebrows done. Wear a buttoned-down shirt so you won’t ruin your hair when you change into your dress afterwards.
3. Bring a camera.
4. Meet your date.
5. Take pictures.
6. Go to prom.
7. Take pictures.
8. HAVE FUN!!!

New Year's Fashion Resolution

New Year’s Fashion Resolution

A warm Happy New Year to all of you!

As we all know, one of the most common commitments that comes along with a new year is a New Year’s Resolution.

What is a New Year’s Resolution?

It is simply a promise you make to yourself – more importantly, New Year’s Resolutions are usually commitments made to better your life and/or lifestyle.

While New Year’s Resolutions are oftentimes associated with dropping the pounds everyone tends to gain, with holiday festivities and all, Carraz proposes another way to feel better about yourself – without the hassle of losing weight.

Instead of struggling to conform to the ideal weight TV tells you, why not consider setting a fashion-oriented New Year’s Resolution?

2008 was filled with a bunch of fashion boo-boos.

From Cher’s uncanny get up at the 2008 Grammies

to the grassy ensemble worn by Madonna at the 2008 Gucci-sponsored UNICEF benefit...

the fashion police this year had a lot of work to do.

There’s a famous saying that goes, “If you feel good on the inside, then you’ll feel good on the outside.”

Who said you need to lose weight to feel good on the inside? Does it really make you feel better? Or do you do it because the media says it’s unacceptable if you can’t fit into a size 4?

When skinny jeans broke out as a fashion trend this year, how many people actually wore it because they thought skinny jeans were fashionable? How many people wore it simply because skinny jeans were set as the trend?

You don’t have to follow the status quo in the fashion industry.

For 2009, we challenge you, instead of being a follower, to be a trendsetter. Go with what you think looks good. If you wear what you feel comfortable and confident in, then you’ll look comfortable and confident.

Wishing you the best in all your fashion endeavors this 2009,

Carraz Gowns
