Prom Dress Time!!

 For several years now, I have been in charge of
this special event.

This year we have so many beautiful dresses donated to the high school.
Moms, graduated students, neighbors and even some teachers
 were eager to donate prom dresses.
It is exciting to see these dresses have one more chance to dance (and maybe more).

 For several months, I've collected and sorted Prom Dresses.
They hung in my office on anything that would hold them,
 until I could move them to the backroom.
We are fortunate enough to have a wide variety of sizes, colors, styles and lengths.
There is something for everyone!

 My mom  helpers.
Couldn't do it without them.

 Girls came into the Faculty Room right after school.
They "shopped" and tried on dresses.
You could hear their giggles from the bathroom.
Of course we had them model for us.

 This young lady had been to several dress stores and wasn't happy.
She tried on this dress.
Her words were," It's a miracle! It fits perfectly!"
She left a happy customer.

 These young ladies were talking over this next lovely selection.

 Store hours are limited.
One more afternoon of giggles and dreams.
Then we put the rest of the dresses away until next year.


  1. What a SPLENDID idea! Things can be so expensive and not everyone can afford to dress 'to the nines'. This way everyone can look stunning.

  2. What a beautiful idea Christine, and what a ministry to girls,I know you get so much joy from blessing them.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Wishing you and your family a most blessed Easter.

  3. The colors and the fabrics!!! There is something so exciting about prom time. It must be fun to get to be a part of that through this great idea, Christine! blessings ~ tanna

  4. What fun!!

    You know... I've never been to a prom - ever - in all my life.

    What a treat for these gals.

    Have a blessed day.

  5. This rocked my socks! I'm a certified princess dress fanatic and just love to watch the Cinderellas all dressed up for the ball. And then, I'm also a certified thrift fanatic. This is such a wonderful, wonderful idea, especially in THIS economy.

  6. What a GREAT idea! I wish we had something like this for my daughter when she went to formals and prom. Oh, the $$$ we could have saved. How fun to be a part of this!

  7. What a wonderful idea! I would love to contribute some dresses too. After three girls and lots of proms you can imagine. I think you have the best idea in doing that. I cannot applaud you enough on the time you put into such a wise endeavor.

  8. What a wonderful idea and what a service you provide! I know that the girls will never forget the fun and the generosity of you and your helpers. Good Job!'

  9. Chris, you are just the sweetest!! Turning your office into a walk-in closet to get ready for all this. :) The pictures are so colorful and all the textures and a few prints. :) Makes me feel guilty that I still have my prom dress. Maybe, after I accomplish getting that zipper up one last time (and the inevitable photo shoot) I will donate my beloved dress. :)

  10. You never cease to amaze me with the thoughtful "things" you do.

    This idea is as beautiful as you are! I love the idea of reusing and regifting these lovely dresses. You matter in so many ways my dear friend and I'm blessed to know you!
