And PS: Thanks to some of the other ladies on this site I've learned that the BOMB-ASS HELLA-STRONG nail-polish is "DIAMOND STRENGTH" by Sally Hansen! (Not all of their line are THIS strong...ONLY the "DIAMOND STRENGTH".)
*Wheelchairs are made of a special ocular magnetic alloy......they're "eyeball magnets".*
*I USE a wheelchair, that does NOT make ME a wheelchair!*

Hope you have a wonderful, memorable night!
What's important is not what happens to us, but how we react to what happens to us..
God gave us two ends, one to think with, n one to sit on.. Success depends on which one u use.. Heads you win, tails u lose..

If you have your heart set on a long Cinderella dress don't fret. See if a seamstress or your mom or you (whoever can sew, my mom is a master sewer, I told her I refused to learn unless my brothers did- I cannot sew to this day because of that) Get the hem taken up so it doesn't get caught in your foot petals and see if it's possible to take in where it goes out. Like this part of the dress /\ if that makes sense. That will help avoid it getting caught in your wheels and spokes. With heels like everyone said try to get a simple piece of fabric to attach them to your foot rests. At my height I usually wore ballet slippers or kitten heels (looooove kitten heels, the one with maybe an inch heel, I think they're for middle school girls but whatever). They can be really cute and more practical for your foot rests.
The most important part... HAVE AN AWESOME TIME!!!! Like I said I just turned 23 and pine over my awesome proms that never were. It might not be perfect but just have a blast with your friends. Good luck and take pictures for us!!!
