Tereya's Prom Story: Preparing For The Big Day

It's Prom Season
Tereya decided in junior year that she was not going to her senior prom. In fact she was adamant about not attending senior prom. It was not a topic for discussion in our house. However, when senior year began all that changed. Needless to say, I was ecstatic. She participated in all of the senior activities and get this, she actually enjoyed it. As the months past, we were hunting for the perfect prom dress, after party outfit and vehicle.

She new she wanted a mermaid style prom dress. Every weekend for four months straight, we went to boutiques and local dress stores. Tereya tried on several dresses. Unfortunately, she did not find a dress that she liked or loved. Our next option was to get her dress made. However, my daughter whom I love dearly suggested we go to Macy's. So off to Macy's we went.

While at this department store, Tereya tried on dress after dress and she did not like any of them. It appeared this trip was an epic fail. As we prepared to leave, a dress caught her eye and she began to smile. Something she had not done since we started shopping for dresses months earlier. Happily, I told her to try on the dress. As I waited for her to exit the fitting room, I began to think "this could be the one". When she exited the room there was a glow in her eye and she was smiling from ear to ear. I knew at that moment she found her prom dress. As a result of the dresses plunging neckline, we needed to focus on the undergarments as they as just as important as the dress.

While at Macy's we went to the lingerie department to look at some brassiere's and shape-wear. Thankfully, this process was painless and we were able to find the perfect brassiere and tummy control undergarment. Before we left the store, Tereya wanted to visit the shoe department to look for a nude strappy shoe. She saw a nude sandal named Stecy Two Piece Sandal by Steve Madden. Unfortunately, the shoe was not available in her size. However, she was able to find a nude sandal at the Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW).
