Depending on where you live in US, you may not agree with the statement that the official first day of spring was about a week ago. With snow in the ground in plenty of places, it still might seem like winter. With that in mind, it might be tough to think about upcoming prom season. That is right – prom, which is short for promenade, is a annual rite of passage for thousands of high school students across the US. The dress, the date, the shoes, the hair, the ride, the music etc get planned months in advance.
Based on where the school stands on the spectrum of “liberalness”, girls plan their dresses from the sexy little black dress from the retailer Dress Street to the more modest prom gowns. In fact, to make sure that not all girls show up in their little black dresses, there is a catholic school in Pennsylvania that is requiring students to submit a photograph of their prom dress for approval before wearing it to prom. Apparently this has not gone well with either parents or students. Surprised? And can you image the logistics nightmare of going to shop, selecting a dress, sending a picture, waiting for a response, and going back to buy it hoping it is still there?
As you can imagine with this formal events, heels are an absolute part of the girls attire, especially if you plan to wear the little black dress! And just like many other formal events, where the event starts of great in heels, a lot of women end of barefoot or bring a pair of back up portable flats for the end of the night. After all, the party does not end at the prom. There is usually an after prom party and walking barefoot just does not match the prom dress!
