    1. My school prom is called Regency Ball and it’s on Friday night! Can’t wait. I bought a navy blue dress from Dillards. It wasn’t under $100, but it wasn’t too far over that either. I liked the blue Nordstrom dress.

    2. I like the light pink flowy gown from Nordstrom. I went to prom last year with my good guy friend and had a grand ole time. I wish there was a way to put a picture on here of it. It was really pretty, a seafoam green high low dress with an empire waist and a sweetheart neckline. The bottom was ruffled kinda like the red dress from David’s bridal. I got it from Macy’s right under $100. I love it! And the best part was, I saw a lot of girls with very similar dresses but mine was completely original 🙂

    3. I want to go to prom, yes, and I even have a dress if I choose to go. It is this gorgeous, floor-length burgundy color with one sparkly item on it’s left side. I feel absolutely stunning in it and it’s really elegant and formal, perfect for the biggest formal event of the high school career (I can’t say much about the dresses above because they do not fit my idea of a prom dress, but to each his own).

    4. The dress I am wearing in my pic is a solid black prom/ROTC ball dress I wore last year and I paid $40 for it at Ross. It is my second fave dress of all 4 years of high school, but my fave is over $200 at half price from a private owned shop around my town.
