I remember when I was first in high school and searching for cheap formal dresses online. I found this certain dress that had thick vertical stripes the whole length of the dress. I thought it was the coolest dress I had ever seen, and I fell in love with it. I had never seen anything like it before. I didn’t particularly like the colors and it was really expensive. I never got it but always looked for a dress like it. My senior year of high school a shop opened up in my town where custom prom dresses were made for great prices. I went in with the vertical stripe design, and they were able to make it for me. I chose a dark sky blue (the closest I could find to my favorite color) and white. I left it very simple with no beading but whenever I wear it I always stand out.
