Who doesn't want to go back to prom?  My senior prom was exactly ten years ago (so scary) and I would love to do it over again.  I wore a special made blue metallic gown that maybe showed a little too much cleavage for my now 28 year old self.  I may have become a bit more conservative, but the fashion sense remains!

This Betsey Johnson tulle dress is a favorite in my collection.  I love the sweetheart neckline and the gold accents.  This dress would definitely be suitable for my second chance prom.  I added gold shoes and a bunch of gold jewelry with a sweet pink bow clutch to really play up on the "girlishness" of this dress.  What do you think?

If you are attending prom this year (or anytime soon) make sure to be prepared!  A small clutch can still carry some important gadgets in case anything goes wrong.  Here is my checklist:

-Oil absorbing sheets.  Instead of powdering your nose repeatedly and caking on the makeup, try using these sheets.  They work much better!
-Lip gloss.  I suggest something with a pale hue, a little goes a long way!
-Cell phone.  This is a great way to take pictures and keep in touch with your friends without carrying a clunky digital camera around.
-Pocket mirror.  Best way to check on your makeup (and if you have any dinner in your teeth).
-Mini comb and bobby pins.  This is perfect for those wearing an updo.  You need your hairstyle to last while you dance it up!
- Extra cash.  Just in case!
-Foldable flat shoes.  You can buy them at Target or pretty much any drug store.  They fit in your purse and you can slip them on when your feet are hurting from your fabulous heels.

Remember to take lots of pictures and to have fun!!!
