We found the dress, we found the shoes...Prom will soon be through!

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!!

You are LUCKY! This sounds like the funnest "prom dress" shopping day...believe me!...I've been in on a few that were NOT! You have such pretty girls. Be sure to post pictures when she is all done up and ready to go. I don't know why kids grown up so fast and why at the time is doesn't feel like it, but looking back....oh well, ENJOY!

It was probably easy because of Tiffy's easy going personality- she's a sweetheart. Sounds like you made some good memories and I'm glad you found a Cafe Rio near you! I want to see pictures of the dress.

Have a wonderful Easter!

When did Tiffy become old enough to go to prom!!!! I'm not sure how I feel about this. She will look beautiful. I can't wait to see pics.
