I still remember those days well. Of high school and the teenage drama that goes along with it. Of boys and home games and back-to-school myself. Of homecoming.
Dances and dresses.
While my oldest son has 3 years before he’s an official teenager, even though he huffs and sighs like he’s 16 already, my daughter still has awhile. But I know it’s not as long as I’d like. Right now, I’d like to keep her in kindergarten forever.
Soon enough, however, there will be those high school dances. There will be homecoming and pouring over images of just the right dress.
Homecoming dresses have come a long way from when I was in high school. Now, they come in short yet elegant to fun and sassy. Many are strapless with varying necklines. Every one seems way too old for my little girl, but I know I’ll have to let her grow up soon enough. I can see that symbol of transition from little girl to adult in some of those dresses. Coming home, or maybe beginning the process of becoming her own.
My favorite dresses are a-line. With a bit of whirl as you’re twirled through the dance. But there also has to be comfort, because you can’t have fun if you don’t feel good, too. And DressFirst has so many dresses to choose from with both form and function.
The perfect dress, when all factors add up just right, can make a girl feel like a princess, as they should. Not only for that one night, but when it’s remembered years from then, while looking at her own little girl and envisioning her growing up as well.
