"Fashion at the speed of life"

Need to know: Promtimes.co.uk

We usually do not pick a site for review but with such price-friendly dresses, we thought this site, known for prom dresses and custom tuxedos can do double duty as a go-to for event dressing.

Feature – colors

image

With about  30 colors for each design, there is an infinite amount of dresses to choose from at this site. We love that each color possibility is added in “swatches” on every page.

Feature – body conscious

image

For each size above 22W, an additional cost of 2.00 pounds is added to the price, making this on of the few sites that offer a body-friendly choice to every consumer.

For consumers with less standard sizing the site also offers tailoring for a fees. It takes from 3 to 14 days but worth it for the best fit.

Not sure of your standard size, check out the size chart.

Feature – On demand

All dresses are created on order so no worries about products that may have sat too long in the warehouse. Even though it takes up to 22 days for the garment to arrive, the quality is worth it. It is true we have “fast fashion” tendencies but this has “couture” quality.  In an hurry, skip tailoring and go for standard sizing.

Feature – all on one page

image

The website uses tabs to give you access to all information about  the website as well as other dresses you may love in one page !! Navigation is made easier and the look also makes the site mobile friendly.

So many choices and features, you must check out  http://www.promtimes.co.uk to get prices starting at 65 pounds in 30 colors.

We now come to a close on our gift guide and I hope you bookmark this and get a fashionista in your life something sparkly using our guide! Happy Haute Holidays from The Fashion Goddess Blog!!

Statement Necklaces

These are my absolute fav things!! I wear a lot from Dirty Celebrity ( love having accessory designers as close friends!!) but I also wear lots of other designers including Betsey Johnson who is the queen of statement! These lovelies look amazing over turtlenecks during the holidays and then you can wear them with just about anything next year!

Like sporting events, there doesn’t seem to be a break between sales and they seem to last longer with higher percentages. Consumers are rejoicing but are high-priced retailers sending the wrong message?

The proof that constant sales are not good for business is how black friday turned into a week (or two) ordeal with cyberweek following as stores extended cybermonday deals. Stores want to attract more consumers but sales can keep in the  red and the economy suffers for it.

Today’s customers come into the store and ask two questions,” said Cocke, retail consultant, “What’s new and what’s on sale?”

The best strategy may be the incentive. PINK by victoria’s secret offers suprise rewards cards and gifts with purchase which packs their stores daily. Of course, sales drives traffic but it also makes consumers wait for items to go on sale.

The best thing for the economy, go back to seasonal sales and offer incentives throughout the year. Your customers will be saved “sale-shock” and it would save your profit margins.

Consumers be weary of deep discounts because it usually means products have sat on the shelves too long or  have a defect (especially true with electronics).

Ornate Earrings

 

Bold earrings are in style and are easy accessories for the holidays. We loved the Betsy Johnson earrings for Punk and rock dressing. Look for earrings with black metal detail for a hard edge. For Classic dressing, scroll detail are unassuming, pick gold hues and ditch the crystal. For vintage and romance, try timeless details like tassels, pearl drops and a small amount of crystal detail. For casual, we picked a cabochon in amber with little scroll detail. Finally, glam goes all out with crystal detail.

Nordstrom rack has some great prices for earrings and stop by on cybermonday for details.
