Nothing I do can simply be normal, can it? Let’s start with getting to prom before I get into what I wore.
It was a rainy day, the first rainy prom anybody could remember. So, the typical sunny garden dress shots were not working due to the weather and also due to my edgy prom look, so my mother and I went on the hunt for a better location. In doing so, my mother, driving my 2 ton Mercedes through a wet and muddy field, got stuck. Forty minutes and two very cold, but heroic, volunteers later, we got my car out and running 30 minutes before I was supposed to be sitting down at my table!
As for what I wore:
I opted for an inexpensive dress that I could wear many times. From a local boutique in my hometown, I fell in love with it while at my hair salon. The shoes are from Aldo, which I fell in-love with and ended up driving an hour and a half, the night before prom, to go to. On the day of prom I began getting cold feet. On one hand, I wanted to be ‘pretty’, and not go out of high school as the weird girl I came in as. But I’m so happy I went with the dress that I loved! It’s so much more me, and the response was great!
And so, without further delay… the photographic evidence of the mud and the studs; prom!
