The Hunt


Today me and my friend Alaina woke up at around 9:00; way earlier than any high school senior should wake up during spring break. See, we were on a mission, a prom related mission.

I was surprised to discover that one of the fanciest boutiques in Philly had a loft devoted to vintage pieces. Me and Alaina both pulled a hand full of dresses hoping the vintage sizing would work out ok!

I couldn't have been more surprised by this long multicolored '60's gown. It fit perfectly and was everything I was looking for. I know no one at my school will be wearing anything remotely similar to prom next month.

Oh you must have thought I was so thick! I got so confused. I thought dim sum was the name of the restaurant 'cos the first letter was capitalised. haha! I love dim sum. I could them all day.

Good on you for picking a dress that's completely unique and you. It is very Missoni. I'm sure you'll look stunning.
