There was tons of stress in finding a dress <-hey I'm a poet and I didn't even know it ;) I'm very picky when it comes to dresses. I have to like every single thing about it, from the length to the style, to the colors to the details. And then you have to add in the fact that I will probably need it altered. Last year, my mom made my homecoming dress so I got to design it myself.
|This is the dress she made from scratch. Impressive, right?|
This year, she wasn't feeling it. I've looked online, in stores, every where I could think of. I found the perfect dress online. The only problem was I could not figure out where to order it. I searched and searched until I finally found the site the picture was from. Except they only had it in red, not charcoal gray like I wanted. By the time I decided the red was cute too, we didn't have time to order and alter it. So we went shopping.
I found my dress in the place I least expected too. I found it in Target. I wasn't in love with it when I saw it. In fact, I bought it because it was the only semi-decent dress I'd found that day and it was cheap. But as I got ready for homecoming, I realized I actually loved the dress and was glad I had bought it.
