It sounds very trivial and very girly, but you must understand something here. I’m the kind of girl who doesn’t start looking until about two weeks before the prom, when the only dresses left are grossly outdated cocktail dresses on the clearance rack. And even though I clearly can’t afford to be picky, I can’t help but point out the ugly straps, the weird sequins, the stupid ruffles. But no. This year, for my senior prom, I’ve found a dress early, and it is awesome.
