PROM

On Wednesday, I had my Year 13 Prom. At first, I was really unexcited; stressing about what type of dress to wear and questioning whether the night itself was going to be good. The word 'Prom' always makes me think about American High Schools going really OTT and girl's dresses resembling something between a meringue and candyfloss (both food references...I don't know whether that explains my current state of mind or theirs). In American Proms, girls always have dates and you can pretty much guarantee the existence of a slow dance. 
 In my Prom, most girls didn't bring dates, dresses were more 'maxi' than 'meringue' and a slow dance was replaced with rapping to Professor Green. This contributed to the night beating all of my expectations and for the first time since I've finished my exams, I actually missed Sixth Form.
 My dress was from Ebay, I mean...er...Vera Wang ;) It cost less than fifty pound and I used old shoes and a friend's bag. Whoever said you had to spend hundreds of pounds on Prom was lying! I did get my hair done though as I wanted soft roller curls (which I can never get right) and wanted to make sure it wasn't going to fall out half way through the night. My make-up, to most people's surprise, I did myself. I looked one of my favourite blogs; 'Musings of a Make Up Manic' and scrolled through different posts to see which look I thought was suitable. It took me a while, but I was really pleased with the result! Now I just have to figure out whether to sell my dress or keep it. Can a girl wear a dress more than once?
