Prom Dress Shopping

We took Emily shopping for a prom dress today, she had found a shop on line called Fab Frocks so we trekked up to Bournemouth to have a look at the dresses. It lived up to its name, it really was full of fab frocks! She had seen one that she liked on line, a pale turquoise, she tried it on and the actual style looked stunning on her but the colour was too pale and just washed her out. She tried the purple version on but purple isn't really her colour either and she was determined to have blue of some description. The assistant went to do some research and came back to say that they could get the dress in indigo blue! As you can see below Emily felt a million dollars in this dress (despite the purple colour) and will have her indigo blue version in about a months time ready for her prom in July.


On our way home we stopped at a lovely park and I managed to get a few photos of Emily, I have so few recent ones of her as she rarely comes out with us now (not always cool to be out with your parents when you are nearly 16 lol) and when she does having her photo taken isn't high on her list of priorities. I am really pleased with these two.


I know Emily isn't smiling in this photo but both Justin and I loved it as it is a typical Emily look!
