In a couple of weeks my homeschool group is having a Cotillion (sort of like prom, but not really) and I've been worried to death I wouldn't be able to find a suitable dress! I must say I'm very picky about what I wear!! So...Mom and I went dress shopping this afternoon, and I'm very happy to say we were successful!
Apparently the "prom dress" look has changed from the long, sequin-y, shiny look...to the vintage, cotton, sun dress look (which is just FINE with me!)...or so the lady at the store was saying... I'm not sure exactly how accurate she was, but I'm satisfied with the fact that I personally like that look.
SO...we found an amazingly vintage dress for me to wear! I'm so very happy! It's not too short (about mid-calf) and its not TOO casual (however more casual than some) AND there are pockets in the side seams! HUZZAH! That is probably my favorite part of the dress! In fact, when I become a famous clothing designer (that is IF I ever become a famous clothing designer), my designs of skirts and dresses will be noted for their side seam pockets... Just sayin'...
Anywho...the past few days, a few people from our drama class (and I) have been practicing a skit we're performing tomorrow. I don't know if you've heard of the "Lifehouse Everything" skit, but if you haven't, make sure you look it up on youtube! It's a really emotional "mime" that's done to that song. I'm really nervous about performing tomorrow, because I've never been involved in something so "real". If you have seen the skit, I'm the main girl... This skit has a chance to be very impacting, so prayer would be greatly appreciated!
Just thought I'd let you know what's going on in my life... :)
Have a great weekend!
