Friday night (May 25) was my senior prom, and I was so excited to wear my dream design created by David’s Bridal.
I painted my nails gold to match the gold sequins on the dress. I then streaked my hair with pale pink dye, because … I’m not really sure
why, but why not? A friend French-braided both sides of my hair and
pulled it into a tucked/twisted bun. It looked really neat with all the pale pink running through it. I added some flower clips that I made with black petals and sequins.
For my date, I went with a good friend named Merlin. I sewed black sequins onto his bow tie so that he would match my hair clips and dress. Our group of about 25 people took a limousine into Washington, D.C., for dinner. My dress had so many layers that when I sat down I basically took up two seats in the limo! No one seemed to mind though.
We danced at prom for about two hours and ended the night at a quaint all-night diner. Everyone commented on how wonderful I looked in my dress. I was constantly overwhelmed with how lucky I was to have been a part of this contest.
