Prom 2014

This year I had 2 kids going to prom, #2 and #3.  #2 had gone last year (You can check that out HERE) with one of his good friends.

We tried on LOTS of dresses… have you looked for a prom dress lately?  It's really hard to find one that is not only age appropriate, and doesn't look like a Vegas show girl, fits correctly and doesn't show off all of a girl's parts. 🙂  We made the skirt, bought the lace top at Express and the tank top at Nordstrom's Rack. The skirt pattern Simplicity S0521 wasn't a hard pattern… but it had a very strange way to make the waistband, which made it harder than it should have been… Of course working with tulle was always a joy. 😉


DSCN6924These shoes were a FANTASTIC buy/find.  They are Badgley Mischka's and retail for $247.00.  We got them for $39. 🙂


At Ottawa High School it's pretty important HOW you make your entrance. Last year #2 made his grand entrance in his Uncle's Repo truck. 🙂  This year #3 entered in a Radio Flyer Wagon.

#2 brought his date in something a little more fancy than a Radio Flyer Wagon…


He arrived in a Jaguar.
