Me and my great friend, Al, the summer before our senior year. Based on this picture,
I'm pretty sure neither of us had a super cool reputation to maintain at the reunion.
Me and Al now, significantly cooler, except maybe the bad lighting and hair in Al's face.
My adorable and steadfast friend, Al, and I decided that together we could relive high school for a night, as long as it was preceded by some massive retail therapy. We dedicated a whole grueling day to shopping. Even though Al found her dress right away, she stuck with me through Macy's and Nordstrom and the Gap and H & M and little boutique stores, until finally I found a dress that suited me perfectly! Then, we repeated the whole process for shoes and accessories. Despite being tired at the end of the day, I was stoked because I felt like I was going to be able to walk into my reunion with a ton of confidence.
It took a lot of patience, but I found the exact perfect dress that's grown up but still super fun.
I even found shoes and a headband that are so totally me!
After shopping with me, Al defined my style as "Preschool Sock Hop,"
which I thought was perfectly descriptive.
