PROM

New shoes for Cinderella.

It's prom time!

L Nellie and I looked online and started to make a shopping plan, when by chance we passed a hole-in-the- wall consignment store with some dresses in the window.  On a whim, we stopped.

Shazam!!!  It was the "Miracle of the Budget Prom Dress."  (I always pray before we shop for a big-ticket item and the Lord always comes through!)

We were able to find TWO dresses for a lot less than we planned on spending for just one.

Grandma provided the bling, and here is the dress-rehearsal hair I gave her.  (I can do fabulous hair with amazing humility, and I have 6 girls, but NO ONE lets me fix them, and NO ONE wants to wear "hair-pretties".  Sigh.  L Nellie will let me do it now, but I don't have time and she's old enough to do it herself...)

This is the dress she'll wear this time. 

I think when I do the real hair, I'll get rid of the part--it's too pronounced.

Bonus prom dress for another day.

I french braided upside down.
