My prom was last weekend-it was loads of fun!! :D
I did a quickie bantu knot out on stretched hair-only whipping out the blow.dryer to stretch it out because i was in a rush (why did my fool self wait until the last minute to decide to do a cowash?? why? :lol: ) and i wanted it big!! then i stuck some random jewels in my hair for some flava!
I'm so glad i wore it natural-i was toying with the pressing, but none of my friends were down with it, and my mom wasn't having it-she thinks i look way better with my natural hair, and yea, i agree.
in all of this, i'm most proud of my bargain shopping-my dress was ONLY 20 DOLLARS!! found it at forever 21, and my grandmother added the black band at the bottom cause it was a wee bit too short, according to my mother :rolleyes: .. word-and the pumps were 25-i love being all recessionista.
enjoy!

You look beautiful! Your grandma hooked you up on that dress, the black hem gives it personality. Your hair looks great too, the clips are cute.

You look wonderful! Grandma did an excellent job. And it does my heart good to see a family who loves natural hair. It&#39;s rare, even in this day and age. And congrats on the BARGAIN! It&#39;s even RARER to find a young lady (or man for that matter) who can bargain hunt, AND look good for the PROM no less!! Most people squander up to $1000&#39;s of dollars on a dress that will only be worn once. <_< (Or tux if you&#39;re a guy. :P )

Lookin&#39; good!!

:wub: Jen :wub:

Cute :D

I don&#39;t get the motivation to spend a lot of money on a prom dress either. I spent 75$ on mine for prom (class of 2008). Your hair is adorable.

Work it raq!!! :yes: You look great and your hair looks amazing. I love the volume and looks soft!!! The black trim on your dress was a great, and smart addition. I hear you about being a recessionista. The great thing is that it&#39;s possible to be one and still look fly, a la your prom pics.
