The matric dance is the same as the Prom, that final function celebrating the last year of school!
The dress is hanging in the cupboard! (Small miracle!! Thank you Universe!)
It was bought from the shop, as I had meaningfully coaxed her into that direction. I did not have the stomach to have a dress made. I had a few unpleasant experiences myself!
The girls are totally one-track minded by now. They have already consulted the hairdresser for the day, and if I did not say "No!" the make-up artist would also be involved by now!
I have never been to a make-up artist myself, and I feel it is a waste of money!
Tell me if you think I am a bit harsh? Being an older mother sometimes makes me go into fall-back mode of "We never did that when we were young!" I realize it was "ages" (just the other day) ago!
This week a friend's mother practiced the make-up for the girls, and the result can be seen in the photos above.
Which eye looks the best? The dress is a light blue.
Please help us by voting in the poll on the left side-bar!
The result of the Poll - thanks to those who have voted, and those who let me know: The left eye won by far! (My choice as well ;-) )
