My school recently had its prom, but since I am only a sophomore, I typically wouldn’t have been allowed to go. However, I volunteered to be a helper, affectionately termed Sophomore Slave, at prom in order to take some pictures for this blog. As a Sophomore Slave, I had to wear a short, black dress and set up and clean up. While that might not sound like that much fun, the three other sophomores and I had a great time.
The girl in the pink dress, Madison, was our prom chair, and she made her dress!
Our prom had a British Invasion theme: there were teapot center pieces, Union Jack name cards and even a tea bar. There was also a photo booth with tons of props, and cutouts of Prince William, Princess Kate and a royal guard with whom you could pose for pictures. (I spent a lot of time taking pictures there with my friends.)
Even our chaperones took some pictures with the cutouts.
The best part of the night, though, was checking out what everyone was wearing. I noticed a couple of trends: Blue was the color of the night, and the girls definitely loved their sparkle.
Some lovely seniors pose for their picture.
I love this picture of my field hockey team. We clean up well, if I do say so myself.
Our two prom queens, Lanie and Imani, rocking their short dresses and tiaras.
There was a pretty even mix of short and long dresses, but I especially loved these two long ones:
Juniors Eugénie, Charley, and Li looked absolutely gorgeous.
Seniors Lizzie, Shae and Lanie show off the fun backs of their dresses.
Seeing all the amazing dresses, dancing with my friends and enjoying the fun atmosphere has me really excited for my own prom next year. (I’ve heard it might be Gatsby themed!)
