Story of a dress

So here is the story of my prom dress.
My best friend arrived at my house early in the morning. And me,him, and my family headed off on the search. My mom was confused about why he volunteered to come along. We got to Tyson's Corner and headed to Neiman Marcus. We saw this Theia dress.We grabbed three other dresses and I proceeded to try them on.I tried it on and this man ran over and told me that he designed the dress for Carrie Underwood to wear. He was very nice and the family continued to talk to him while I tried on the next dress. I came out and everyone loved it,including myself. It was declared so me. Don O'Neil said,"I didn't design this but it looks great on you." I wanted to get it right there. But we didn't;we headed to Sak's and didn't find anything I liked. We all looked around the rest of mall and couldn't find anything. My friend and I went to Williams Sonoma because there was free food;he loves free food as much as I do. My stepdad went back to Neiman's and get the dress. I was so excited.
Isn't it beautful? I love it so much. The feathers are beautiful. The color looks great on me too. It's by Sue Wong. I have no clue how to style it. What kind of shoes (cheap would be best since the dress was so expensive)? How should I do my hair? Is a rhinestone hairband too much?

It is an absolute stunner. I think any filigran shoe - silver, nude - will look perfect with it.
And I do love prom dress anecdotes :)

Beautiful!! I think the headband would be lovely, especially since it would pick up on the belt in the dress. And I agree, a simple understated shoe is probably best (and cheapest!). No one is going to be looking at your shoes with such a fantastic dress.

gorgeous dress!!! i think a nude shoe and simple accessories so the dress stands out like it should.

hat dress is gorgeous!!!! I know this is unconventional but I was thinking that perhaps a simple pair of elegant cream flat evening sandals could look good and barely there head band with tiny crystals would be fabulous. Also check out this months edition of teen vogue, it's the Prom edition and is chock full of all sorts of good stuff(especially shoes..)

This is stunning!
The way it is styled in the photograph, with hair up is simply beautiful. It could be just me, but I would wear this with black shoes, so as to take away a little sweetness.. but I agree no one is going to be looking at your shoes when you are wearing this beauty!
