As a mom to a prom going punk princess (she’s kind of boyish), I really didn’t know what to do. I have no idea how things will work out for us. I didn’t want to over impose things that I would want her to wear but I want her to choose what she wanted provided that the rent is within our means.
So, we went searching for the perfect dress but all the ball gowns she liked were too expensive for me. The amount was so impractical that I was about to give up. I wanted her to just choose a cocktail dress because it was more cheaper than a ball gown. Luckily, after days of finding the gown of her choosing, we finally found one that we both liked. She liked it and so did my taste and my pocket. So, it was a win-win situation for the both of us.
To spice up her dress, I bought her accessories last Friday. Thanks to the help of my friend, choosing what looks best for her with all the variety of accessories available was easy. We found good ones. Though they weren’t expensive, they looked very elegant.
Finally, her prom came last night. It was her first. I knew she was excited but she did not want to show it. But last night, I can feel that she was very happy. She was able to wear the ball gown she wanted and be with her classmate dancing. As you can see below, her smile shows it! AND, I am so proud!
