View Full Version : Just Wanted To Share Some Prom Pics!

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.
more in my fotki if you want! :D

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.

05-31-2009, 06:01 PM
Raq, you look gorgeous! Too cute! ^_^

05-31-2009, 06:18 PM
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:

You looked great for prom hair dress the whole nine lol. True bargin shop lol i didn&#39;t spend more the $50 for any of my prom dresses and i thought I was doing good :lol: .

05-31-2009, 07:24 PM
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.

05-31-2009, 07:38 PM
You really cute! I love everything, esp. the fact that you didn&#39;t spend a lot doing so.

05-31-2009, 07:45 PM
aw, thanks guys. the compliments are making me blush!! :wub:

05-31-2009, 07:56 PM
That&#39;s a cute style. I&#39;m also glad that there&#39;s no way we&#39;ll be seeing you in "those" prom pics that make the rounds....

Simply beautiful Raq! The simplicity actually makes it beautiful and your hair......magnifique!!

05-31-2009, 09:23 PM
Raq, you looked so pretty. Your hair was on point and that dress was perfect for you :wub:

05-31-2009, 09:44 PM
Raq you looked great!! I absolutely love that color on you, and I am so happy to see you kept it naturally big for prom :P.

05-31-2009, 09:56 PM
You look really sweet!

05-31-2009, 10:04 PM
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.

05-31-2009, 10:24 PM
You and your hair looked gorgeous!

05-31-2009, 10:57 PM
