4/17/07: Graduation Time, Come On!

“A witch and a bitch always dress up for each other, because otherwise the witch would upstage the bitch, or the bitch would upstage the witch, and the result would be havoc.”- Tennessee Williams

June 15, 2007 - the last day of middle school. Just thinking about it makes chills run up and down my spine - high school, here I come. Well, there has been a lot of talk about graduation dresses. Krystal says, "I'm wearing one for the ceremony, one for the party." Hayley says, "You HAVE to wear black to the party - the theme is red carpet!" I say, "I need to be an individual... I'm not going to follow the crowd and find a beauty pageant-esque Macy's junior department dress. I'm going for a more - grecian approach. On an attempt to find my mum a tablecloth for her dinner party on Saturday, we ended up at Bloomingdales - yet the linens were in the most obscure, ugly colors and prints. I dragged her up to floor 4, my favorite - and we scouted throughout all the racks of Free People, Juicy Couture, Splendid, and BCBG until we found this perfect beauty. It was totally me - and fit well, too! I'll pair it with some gladiators, or cute brown flats - to make it totally unique - and totally my own. The price was, eh.... pretty high, but the dress is now my "8th grade graduation present." I have many ideas of ways I can dress it up for parties, and dress it down for school or shopping. No doubt about it - I'll walk down to receive my graduation certificate in style looking chic.

I always say you wont look good in a dress unless it pops out at you on the rack. And I think because you have such a love for this cute white number, you'll rock it.

Personally, I dont know if i'd rock that belted look on the model for graduation.. but that's just my personal style

my middle school was k-8 and we had this fat graduation and all the girls had to wear white dresses and all the guys had to wear suits hahahaha i spent FOREVER finding a dress and then I found a theory one and an mbmj one. I ended up wearing the mbmj one, luckily, because some other girl was wearing a similar theory dress!!! anyway that dress is so pretty
