I was asked to purchase a dress for my niece's 6th grade graduation prom. Talk about pressure!! To start with, I had less than a week before my Mom needs to take it up North with her, and I have never been to a prom, nor bought something so important for someone. At the same time, I am thrilled to be a part of this, I miss being with the kids all the time and being a part of their lives.
After a few website searches and a couple of long phone calls comparing notes I went out to a bridal store here in town to find the dress. My Mom probably will regret not coming with me as she'll never see me in a bridal store again LOL!! I found a gorgeous dress and many accessories. My niece LOVES her bling and so I wanted to get her a sparkly sash to add to her dress... well, that was $80 I wasn't willing to spend. So I spent $12 on a plain sash and went to Michael's (conveniently across the way) and bought some supplies.
I seriously felt like the Stanley girls from Gypsy Sisters! I do have to admit it was fun though and I could have kept going, but was afraid I would end up with the whole thing covered :)
This is the finished piece... I sure hope she loves it, and that it doesn't fall apart LOL! I will share a picture of the dress once my Mom takes it to her and I can share my niece as well :)
