I love prom time. I don’t know why. I didn’t have the greatest time at my prom. I was dating a twenty-something physical therapist, so I couldn’t get permission for him to attend. My mother and grandmother found a more appropriate date for me. It was a disaster. I’m five-two (I will tell you my true weight, but never my real height.), and he was six-five. And it didn’t help that we didn’t have a thing in common.
And don’t get me started on my dress. It was black satin and gold lame. At least it had a classic shape. I loved the sweetheart neckline and short tiered skirt. But now I wish it had been plain black satin. But my family didn’t have a lot of money, and it was affordable and kind of pretty.
So this week I am going to have a week of prom dresses. And I’m am going to start with dresses from Net-A-Porter. Think of it as prom dresses for spoiled brats. But all of the dresses will be under $1000, because no parent, no matter how wealthy should pay more than that. After $1000 I feel the daughter should be chipping in. But that’s just my opinion.
