Hi everybody!
I'm going to Winter Formal this year, and I was wondering how formal winter formal is. I know it's not fluffy gone-with-the-wind dresses, but i have this dress:
is it formal enough?
I was thinking of wearing it with a light blue shrug or bolero i would have to make or buy (it's gonna be cold!) and a light blue purse i have already.

I haven't been to a winter formal (we didn't have such things) but I think your dress looks perfect.  Wink  It looks super beautiful and the sparkles fits the winter theme. I've only went all out for prom and bought less expensive dresses for other events.

it seems to be somewhat different depending on your school (for instance, my best friend only dressed up for prom at her school, all other dances were t-shirt and jeans affairs), but for how things were at my school, i think that dress would be perfect.

thank you! i just needed some reassurance... some girls go all out and I don't really have the facilities to do that.
I'm a junior this year, and this is my first HS dance...
but luckily i've already decided to go stag.. so i don't have to worry about a date.

if you like your dress, who cares?

besides, it's a beautiful dress with an extremely flattering cut, I'd go with some lt. blue satin sash around the waist and a very simple, short shrug. You could find some black shoes and add light blue details yourself like a satin bow or ribbon flower
like this
there are lots of different ribbons if you google some ideas, too.
I always thought it was insane how much any girl in high school spends on formalwear, just so you can wear it once and throw it in the back of the closet. I think it's much better to get alot of use out of a few great dresses and show off your mad craftin' skills

good luck, have a great time at your dance
you better post a picture of the finished result!
