Prom Dress Season: Mission Accomplished

I would like to thank Meriah’s friend Alexis for suggesting FANCY SCHMANCY     as a place to look for a prom gown. When dealing with a plus-sized teen, dress shopping can be heart-breaking.

Not today, it wasn’t.

It almost was. There were few size 20 gowns. We found three for her to try on. The first two, we couldn’t get the zippers up. She almost didn’t try on the last one, but I asked her to. It fit perfectly in the bust and waist. It does need to be shortened. Once we get her shoes, we can get that taken care of. She also got earrings. Passed on the bracelet. The dress came with attachable shoulder straps, one of which we are turning into a choker.

Mission accomplished. My hair isn’t white, neither of us have ulcers, Nick isn’t complaining about the price (Did I mention the dress was on clearance?), and there is no feeling on ‘settling’, since the color and style sit her very much indeed.
