I cannot believe that a friend, a close one, could do something like this! SHE BOUGHT THE SAME PROM DRESS AS ME! I even told her exactly where I bought my dress, and she bought it at the same store. I gave my name, my school name and the type of dress I bought to the store so that if anyone from my school wanted to buy the same dress as me, she'd be stopped. What did I do this for if the ladies working there don't even pay attention to it? I don't want to switch my dress because I bought it way far first and it was already brought to alterations before she even claimed to have the same dress as me. I would be capable of living through this but here's what makes me want to scream and crush her bones: She's actually HAPPY we have the same dress! Can you believe this? "OMFG! You bought the same dress as me!" "Awe that's cool!" "No!!! You don't understand! People, whether we want it or not, will compare us." "OMG! Why are you acting this way? It's just the prom. We're going there to have a good time. Who cares if we have the same dress?" - Insert dramatic music here - FML.
Monday, I went shopping in Montreal for my Prom dress. I wanted to find the perfect dress. I wanted to put that dress on and feel that it was mine. Of course, I wouldn't be writing this if it was just a sweet, boring story. Something happened. I tried on tons of dresses and was hesitating between two. I put the red dress that I loved better aside for an hour to really think about it over lunch. When I came back, the saleslady told me that another girl tried it on while I was away and that she bought it. I felt like crying because that was the only SMALL they had. The only sizes left were XS and M. I tried the medium on and it was too big. But I bought it anyway and I brought it to a lady which will modify it however I want. I'm so glad because my dress was in just about every store and I'm very likely to have the same dress as another girl, but not if I modify it!
Tuesday, I went to Carrefour Laval to shop for prom shoes. I tried on a bunch but I want to keep looking even though I think I found a pair that I love. They're Steve Madden shoes and they're hot! I just want to be sure because Steve Madden shoes can get pretty expensive but luckily, these are shoes that I can definitely wear after the prom. They're cream coloured with a full heel that's made out of really dark wood. I guess this'll match my red dress and pearls.
