The weather may be desperate and there isn't much I can do to help out with mother nature but I can most definitely help all you prom girls find the perfect vintage gown needed for the ball. I've been researching for a couple of days now and I have chosen my top gorgeous vintage dresses and where you can find each one to buy just for my readers. Personally I believe that when looking for a vintage dress it's best to think outside of the box and not to look in your usual clothing websites or stores. Vintage shops from all around the world most likely have a Facebook page and that's a great way to start. What I usually do is research the best vintage shops in an area, for example, London, New York, Dublin, etc, and from there I find a list of let's say the 10 best vintage shops in ... and I will then find each shop on Facebook. More than likely their Facebook page is updated quite regularly with photos of their stock. I have found that most Facebook pages for vintage boutiques offer a phone number or email address. If you have seen something you can't imagine living without you could try order over the phone or get an invoice emailed to you and pay through paypal. I've done it plenty of times! It's quick and easy. Another website I have found which is great for vintage hunting is Etsy. Etsy is the "world's most vibrant handmade marketplace". The site offers its users a chance to buy and sell handmade or vintage items, art and supplies. It has hundreds of pages of vintage dresses that are definitely prom potential. Vintage shopping is the best shopping because you never know what you are going to find. For me I feel like a kid in a candy store or going downstairs on Christmas Day and the excitement of what's beneath all that wrapping paper. 
If anyone needs anymore help or ideas feel free to contact me by emailing me at or mailing me on the Els Chamber facebook page. 

Remember to think outside of the box. Don't think it's only prom or it's only that occasion, it's not, it's that once chance for you to wear that one dress that stands out from everyone else. Take it! 

Be different!
