When I saw Flare Magazine’s “Prom Part Deux” contest entry requirements, I knew I had to try my luck. All I needed to do was write about my own Prom, and describe why I might deserve to have another go at it. After finding out that I won 2 tickest to the Prom at the ROM event, as well as $1000 gift certificate from BCBG, I was seriously jumping for joy. But upon further reflection, me #WINNING meant that I truly did have the best worst Prom story ever. And that, my friends, is hella sad.
Not to rehash my way too long Prom fail story, here’s just a quick summary of things that happened on Prom night (and before):– Lost luggage on my way to Prom (dress, shoes, accessories…everything!) – Couldn’t find a last-minute dress replacement, so I went with a very simple aka blah choice – My mom’s hairstylist gave my shoulder-length hair some major whippage, making me look very Marge Simpson (sans le bleu) – At Prom, my first attempt at dancing resulted in a broken heel – Best friend loaned me some shoes from her mom’s car – black rubber cloggy type monstrosities – Oh, and since I’ve spent my senior year studying abroad, I went without a date
So you might see now that I needed another chance at Prom. After much consideration, I went with this BCBG Max Azria Runway number. It was just too perfect for twirling, and I fell in love with the pleated side-skirt-thingamajig.
So, thank you Flare, for giving me a chance to experience Prom again…this time with a great date, a lovely dress, and a pair of heels that didn’t buckle on me. One could even say that I…had…the time of my life! And I owe it all to you.
