Well, prom is tonight. I'm not exactly sure what my feelings about it are...I like the dressing up, but I don't really like dancing (which is kind of the point). Ah well. I guess I'll see how it goes as it goes.
In a little while we'll be picking Helena up so we can get a few last minute things that we need then dye my hair. The last part could be a huge mistake, but I'm only dying the underside of it and the dye isn't permanent, so I think it'll be ok. At least I hope it'll be ok. Then we'll be meeting a bunch of our other friends to get ready together. It'll most likely be at least slightly insane.
Here's a little preview of my dress.
I've actually had it since June or July. I found it in a thrift store in Astoria, Oregon for $7! And what makes that even better is that I had been drooling over almost the exact same dress, but in white, on ebay and it sold for over $100! I was so exited to find this, and it's in perfect condition too.
On another awesome thrifty prom note, I found a suit jacket for Josh at a thrift store earlier this week. First off, it fits him really really well, which is pretty amazing since he's got such a long torso and long arms. Second, it turned out to be Armani! We didn't even realize until after we bought it. Third, it cost $5. Yeah. I feel pretty accomplished :)
I'm sure there will be more about prom soon.
Wish me luck?
Also, check this out! It's hilarious. Ah, 80's prom.
