Trish Penson

Trish Penson of Candy's Council of Cool is not shy when it comes to her fashion sense and her self-designed prom dress is proof! She looks elegant in this peplum mermaid dress she came up with herself! The detail that makes her look shine—literally!—is the multi-colored gems on the upper part of her gown. The inspiration behind it? Selena Gomez's beaded short-dress from her music video "Love You Like A Love Song." With such striking details, Trish kept her look elegant with no accessories and soft, wavy hair.

When it comes to taking inspiration from your favorite blogger, magazine, designer, or celebrity for a look or even a piece you want to design, it's always important to be true to who you are. Use your inspiration as just that and build on from there! You can even gather inspiration from multiple places to create your very own mood board. Just like Trish, get ideas from things you like but turn it into something that represents you! She designed her prom dress based on Selena's outfit but she transformed it into a one-of-a-kind gown, which represents her personal style. So go ahead and start gathering inspiration for that date night outfit or even your very own prom dress! Just always remember that you look your best when you're confident and true to yourself!
