      I think short prom dresses are a great idea. Went through the whole prom thing with my daughter almost 2 years ago now. Yikes. Must have looked at 400 of them online, of which she found ONE that she liked and it was unavailable. Finally found one place that had ONE in her size. Then they sent the wrong dress and in the meantime sold the one she wanted. Meltdown city. So where was this lens when we needed it? :-)
