    In case you hadn’t noticed, prom season is upon us, well, in America at least.

    And when the dress code isn’t ridiculously sexist, those students go all out when it comes to their outfits.

    Two prom dresses in particular stood out for us this week, both for equally awesome reasons.

    First off, we had total girl boss Shami Oshun, from California, who decided she didn’t want to look like all the other girls at the prom.

    So she went and made her own unique dress, the night before her prom, charting the process on her Twitter page.

    There were purple tulle, flowers and crystals involved and the result was quite spectacular, considering it all cost her about $15.

    Shami did all the work by herself and hopes to be a design student next year. Oh and she’s currently working on a possible ASOS collection. No biggie.

    DIY is clearly a big fashion trend, judging by the second prom dress that caught our eye.

    Brenda Sierra, 18, created a lovely floral gown with beaded top to attend her prom, and while it’s beautiful, the real reason it went viral was that she made a matching outfit… for her 7-year-old Dachshund, Sasha.

    She said she loved her dog so much that she wanted to share her most memorable moment with her. How cute?
