Top 10 Most Popular Prom Dresses in 2012
Nobody should miss their prom. It is one of the most unforgettable moments in a young person's life. Sadly for me, I had never experienced prom night, as I went to a very strict all-girl catholic school. No co-ed dances allowed. So, imagine my excitement when my daughter announced that she was going to the prom. I was, if at all possible, more excited than my daughter. We shopped and shopped 'til we dropped to find the perfect prom dress, and of course, the perfect shoes and purse to match. And the perfect hairdo, but of course.
Shopping for a prom dress is like shopping for a bridal gown. Out of the hundreds of prom dresses out there, It has to be the one that makes a girl say "That's me!"
