The countdown to Prom has begun for us seniors! It’s crazy how fast time is passing by, especially now that we are officially second semester seniors. The past few weeks, prom has been a recurring topic in conversations among us girls, and it is still two months away. “Send me a picture of your dress!”, “Who is hosting?” and “Oh my gosh, it’s approaching so soon and I haven’t even started looking for a dress…” are constantly talked about at the lunch table.
The funny thing is, I can definitely relate to everyone who hasn’t started looking for dresses. Dress shopping is already hard enough, and this is a huge night, so finding the perfect dress is a must. Not to mention, finding a unique and different dress so you don’t show up wearing the same dress as someone else is important. It’s so important to some girls that they have created a group message where everyone is sending in pictures of their dress to make sure no one buys the same one.
Here are some of my recommendations that I’ve come up with to all the girls still looking for a dress:
If you are going to order dresses online, I would start looking now or in the next few weeks and order soon, just because you don’t want to stress about your dress not coming in on time, or not liking the way it fits. If you don’t want to buy a new dress or don’t have the money to spend on a dress, ask around and see if anyone has one you can borrow! Or… in the next few weeks, check in with Becca’s Closet to see if they have any dresses you like.
But my biggest recommendation that I have got from some friends of mine that have graduated is to have patience! Dress shopping is certainly not easy, and you may not find the dress you like after the first one you try on. You will know when you know, and that may be the last dress you try on after a month of looking for one, so take a step back, breathe and have fun because when you think about it, this will probably be the last time we will be looking for a dress to wear to a high school dance.
