Well, another prom...done!  Dress, date, hair, nails, shoes, make-up, boutonniere,  photographs and pre-party; what a busy day!  Most of the girls at my daughter's prep school are BCBG MAX AZRIA dress fans, so because BCBG MAX AZRIA has such few styles, the girls even have a facebook page to post their dresses so there are no repeats.    Also, BCBG dresses seem to be well made and you can get a variety of sizes.  The girls at my daughter's school tend to dress conservatively for prom--not a lot of glitter, diamonds or shiny material.  As a group, the girls and the boys looked really great!   Most of the boys wear black tie too-my daughter's date actually tied his own bow tie and wore his dad's Gucci loafers; he was very cute!   No white tuxes or strange ties here!  The prom is at the Henry Ford Museum in Greenfield Village.  Our school is one of two proms that are held there each year.  It is a very nice and special event.

Black prom dress... well I am not crazy about black for young girls since as a woman,  it seems like you have to wear black your entire life, but this is the dress, color and size that worked.  We returned the first dress 3 days before the prom and at the last minute, there were very few (no) options. The good news is that dress, shoes and jewelry were all on sale!   Sometimes if pays wait until the last minute. My daughter looked beautiful.
