    So I have been wanting to share this story since last night but Snapfish doesn't seem to want to take my cell phone pictures. So I have found the dress online and will share it with you.

    Alysia and I went dress shopping last night. She at first wanted a short dress since she is petite. The salesclerks were awesome and got her all sorts of great dresses. All were very cute but none WOWed her. So we went looking throught the racks ourselves. I found a long dress with lots of sparkly things on it. The color is peach and I have always thought this one of Alysia's best colors.

    Here is the dress on the model. It looks MUCH better in person IMO. I wouldn't have picked it based on the picture here. There is also a picture of the shoes we bought as well. The wonderful thing is it doesn't need any alterations. It is the perfect length with heels!! YEAH!!

    It was also probably the most expensive dress we looked at as well. It was also the only one she tried on that she and I both gasped out loud. You can't put a price on that.

    We took our first trip to WDW when she was 5. On the last day, she really wanted a Tinkerbell costume. It was $50. We were going home that day. $50 was A LOT of money back then. I so regret that I didn't buy that dress. I guess this is the current day Tinkerbell dress

    Prom is April 18th so I will have lots of pictures then.

    You can't really see it in the picture but the dress has a bit of gold in the under layers.

    I found this nifty site for shoes. www.shoeocean.com The shoes were only $16.99 with $2 shipping.

    Seriously? Those are pretty elaborate shoes for under $20!!! Wow!

    It's nice that it has a touch of gold. The shoes will bring it out a bit. I wondered if the sparklies had some gold to them.

    Whew. You are sending Mike along with her (armed) right?

    That is a good idea! Mike should definately go along to keep the boys in check

    I told her we were going to Payless for shoes! they didn't have anything but a google search came up with the site I mentioned.

    My cousin (who's mother worked for an airline at the time) in NY (Syracuse) flew to Boston to buy shoes for her senior prom!
