.. picked me up at six ..

For many girls in their junior and senior years in high school and sometimes, I suppose, into college, the prom is the highlight of the year.  Their is a whole ritual about the prom – the dress, the hair, the flowers, the ‘ride’, the date… and of course, the event itself.

blog 060416 Ghee Prom Gown Pink

Ghee has a special release this weekend – a prom gown in this lovely pink as well as a beautiful cobalt color. A strapless mesh gown with the added flouncy skirt, it shimmers and sparkles. This release can be found at the main store as a new release.  If you have a special event – prom, formal – or you just are going out for a night of dancing, you will love this sparkly option!

A day comes in the springtime
When Earth puts forth her powers,
Casts off the bonds of winter
And lights him hence with flowers…
