Today T and I had a fun day shopping for her prom dress! (I do have to admit though, I was worried that it would be frustrating to find a modest, well priced dress, in the midst of a very wordly, strapless, skimpy, designer world!) But I was wrong! T googled modest dresses in Arizona, and found a place in Mesa that sells them. We went to the store, and the selection was slim, but the woman sells them from her home too. I gave her a call and she graciously invited us over without an appointment, and the day before Easter to boot! She has a bedroom in her home that she uses as a dressing room, and she had racks and a huge closet full of the most beautiful formals. (Everyone of her formals are modest, and at the most reasonable prices.) She kept handing T more and more choices. It was so fun!! T would swirl around in the 3 way mirror, and smile or shake her head. T finally decided on a tea length, teal green formal. After dress shopping, we went to Cafe Rio for lunch, and then went shoe shopping. T found some really cute, strappy heels at the Nordstrom Rack, and then we headed home.
I honestly thought that we would be gone all day, and that we would come home empty handed, and a little bummed! I am so happy that we found that fabulous dress shop called 'A Dressy Occassion' I hope someday, wedding dress shopping is as easy!!
