Also...She is wearing the fifth (and final) dress that was purchased for this event. The first 2 dresses were bought on major clearance at Belk. By major, I mean 19.80, marked down from 275.00. Yes! They were gorgeous, but both would have to be altered.... a lot! The next 2 dresses were ordered. When they arrived, she loved them both and had almost decided which one to keep and which one to return, when she headed to NYC for a school field trip. And it was there that she found this dress. It was hanging in the window at Anthropology. She spotted it and knew that it was the one. She called me to ask if she could use the "for emergencies only" credit card to purchase the "dress of her dreams"....and she would return the others as soon as she got home. It was less expensive than what seemed to be her favorite, and who was I to crush her dreams, right?
The night was just as Emily had hoped it would be.
Don't they make the cutest couple?
Prom love. Sweet times!
