My Dream Prom Dresses

Since I am a senior in high school and its spring time everyone probably knows whats coming up in a girls world who is obsessed with fashion. Yep, you guessed it, senior prom. Wearing a dress to senior prom and wearing a dress on your wedding day are the 2 most special occasions I could come up with when you should choose your dress carefully. Although when Im getting married and looking back on prom I will probably laugh thinking this wasnt that huge of a deal. But of course its fun to dream about right now. I wonder what Tavi would wear. Something vintage I would hope but most of all, something Tavi. Which is exactly what I want. I want to wear a look that is me. So I put together some of my favorite dresses of the season, (although all of them are out of my price range).

Is Sierra Leone the Next Paris?

I recently stumbled upon an article about a fashion designer who grew up in Sierra Leone during civil war riots, left the country to study fashion in Paris and is now designing clothes in her home country. Her name is Katrina Manson. The article, linked here, calls her photos "fresh, the sort of thing that Paris Vogue would do but cheaper". I didnt get a chance to look at her clothing for sale but each item varies from $30-$100.

What do you think of her designs? Would you buy any of the items in the photos?
